Awesome simple evolution comic

I see this being a thread fail but whatever. This explains evolution rather simply, and maybe more clearly than most people see it as.

what is this trying to prove? Is this trying to show that those who believe in the Adam and Eve story are stupid?

This "mightier-than-thou" attitude is becoming quite annoying.

i think the point is for the adam and eve believers to see for themselves why they are stupid. for the rest of us, it's just entertainment.

Good comic. I'll have to give this a more detailed look when I get home.

I didn't see it as calling some people stupid.

I thought it was just trying to explain evolution in a simpler way that highlights the logic of the process instead of showing in a purely scientific format. In a way it appeals to a broader audience by calling on basic cause and effect instead of a more robust format with all the technical terms.

Spot on.

There are some great human evolution documentaries on Netflix. Some are long but worth the watch.

this.
But not attention for me... just that the topic seems too trivial. Those are high school level.

exactly. It makes it so easy to understand.

I feel like a lot of the people that dismiss evolution is because they assume animals somehow control the changes when they need them. For example, a giraffe needed a longer neck. Species mutated by accident and those that had a longer neck could survive.

meh,

I keep my mind open but I don't believe on neither evolutionism and creationism. I believe in Nowism, and don't worry about it. Once I die. We will see which one is true.

As far as evolutionism goes; It's all stipulation sure its a theory and you can prove it right buy stipulating your own outcome by using the available knowledge at the time. But have we ever come across an in-between species?

Apes to Human. So, one day a female monkey had a human baby? were are all the inbetween humanoid, mutated looking species? Evolution says they all died off and we "try" to assume how they looked. leaves to many things up in the air.

Now creationism. Was written by man. and as all men we tend to glorify and exaggerate things usually for our own benefit or benefit of a group. Not saying it's not true either but it was crafted by men; and perhaps told by gods.

Just look at all the different religions out there in the world; They are all very similar; Who is to say which one is the only valid one? NO ONE. Gods may had foretold their stories and taken part in creating us but that didn't stop people from altering it for their own benefit.

It's better to know both sides and decide for yourself. Ultimately no ONE knows the real answer to this. Yet. We can only stipulate and theorize.

you have so much to learn. You obviously have a huge lack of understanding of just how much time has passed on this planet. Changes are very gradual. And yes, there are many transitional fossils and evidence out there.

you are right, I do have MUCH to learn; but so does everyone else.

Evidence thought to be proof of evolution BUT have you ever thought that maybe science doesn't know it all; and god forbid (no pun intended) is wrong?

Good example, people in one point in time thought we lived on a flat surface. People were made fun of if anything else was suggested.

Now take this scenario. Science says evolution is the alpha and omega. based on what WE know at the moment. Does that make it 100% true? I'll let you decide.

Creationism, says the same. Is it 100% true? decide for yourself.

BOTH, created, mutilated, changed, altered by MAN!

One thing is for sure. however this happened; however the entire universe was formed, is something that cannot be explained and called certianty in such a short amount of time "modern" science has existed.

One thing is for sure thought. It's no use to get these things get to you; Since WE really don't know everything as a human race. We can't even modify our own DNA, and your telling me we are able to "deduct" how everything in this universe was created? lol

AGAIN,

I'm not descreting either beliefs but it's silly to keep pushing one or the other on people.

You know it all you...

Yea I understand that. But I'll take the side that has enough pride to admit it's wrong. Not the one that won't. I don't mean any disrespect but it's hard to have a conversation about this stuff if you've never really looked into it.

I have.

See this is my point altered and butchered by man. Wether it be for pride, Who is truer... power, control, crowd control.

Kind of hard to put that much trust into things written by man. When you have pride, money, and power built into ourselves or did we evolve into those traits? You would think pride, money and power would be of no issue if we are so evolved.

But they still prevail from millions of years ago according to evolution or 7000 years according to creationism.

eh, just live your life and wait until you die.

It's not the content of what is discussed in the thread, but the attitude of those inside of it. I love evolution, don't get me wrong. It is the notion that you know all, the idea that what you believe is so much better than everyone elses belief. The reasoning behind the priority to be so intellectually above people because YOU KNOW that this idea of evolution is FACT and anyone who believes otherwise is retarded and jesus isn't real and turnips are really apples and blah blah blah is so mundane. Do we really live in a world where you can't be accepting of other's ideas so far as to let alone those who want to believe in something?
