there are some interesting anomalies in the theory of evolution. Bad Religion is fucking awesome btw.

Human beings can trace their lineage back to Lucy, an African female. Every human on the planet. But, if she was the mutation...where are all the offspring and generations that it took to breed out the 'useless' DNA? Where are the generations upon generations that it took to breed Lucy's genes into the mainstream gene pool?

The progression from one species to the next isn't gradual, as logic suggests. Instead it is quite linear....there was Lucy- and then modern man. What's missing are specimens from those centuries of breeding that it would have taken to weed out the non-mutants. Lucy's mutated existence was suddenly the norm. That time in between mutations....Darwinism-and physical evidence- doesn't account for that.

The evidence rarely shows an evolutionary darwin progression, whereby a species mutated, evolved, and was bred into extinction or prominence. Instead it is much more defined...suddenly humans had no fur, suddenly birds had curved beaks, suddenly...

There is a whole lot of false in this


preach away, please. what's wrong with it?

Lucy wasn't the only one of her species. And there were other species around at the time that we are aware of. Further, we actually broke away from chimps genetically earlier than the Lucy days.

This is a decent, albeit basic, read:

How many people actually believe this shit?

The level of denial and logical dissonance needed to buy into this is extraordinary.

Isn't it mostly just shtick at this point?

The Facebook group I was in for awhile seems very dedicated to it.

Did you watch the video Jorge posted last page? That whole "the pilot would have to point the nose of the plane down" argument is beyond stupid. It's called gravity dumbasses

So - you're saying gravity pulls the nose down huh?

No, because of gravity there is no need... Nevermind. This thread is a fucking trigger for me

Being confronted with bold new ideas can make some people angry.

I understand the theory. The fossil evidence just doesn't support it. Primate evolution begins 50 million years ago, or so, human 5 million years or so....yet there are tools found dating to 150 million+ years.

I;m not suggesting creationism....I am suggesting that intelligent life has risen and fallen at least once on this planet...there was a globalized society perhaps more integrated than what we have today...and it was wiped out when the ice caps melted 15-13,000 years ago. When modern man emerged, as the waters receded, That's where history begins, according to text books. They are ignoring literally mountains of evidence to continue this narrative.

Want to tell someone French you're a flat-earther? Possibly don't use Google Translate.

Entering "I am a flat-earther" into the online translation service gives you "je suis un fou" - or I am a crazy person.

It's not that much better when using Italian, with the translation, sono un bambino piatto, meaning "I'm a flat child", however Google's Spanish translation is a little closer - soy un jugador de tierra plana, or "I am a flat land player".

I don't necessarily believe in Flat Earth but it does bother me how people make fun of flat earthers when they don't really know they just know what they've been told

And I admire the courage put on display by those who admit Flat Earth could be real in the face of such a judgement

Damn to driving posts 60 miles per hour

I mean I'm sure if I ran all the scientific tests to prove the Earth is round I would find the Earth is round it's just that you know I've never personally run those tests so I'm like almost a hundred percent sure the Earth is round
