I gathered these up from multiple chat room and e-mails over the years ... The winner recieves the presitigious Golden Gould Award. A fine trophy in 14K plated gold which shows the late esteemed evolutionary biologists in obvious olfactory distress holding his nose with one hand and holding an unidentified object at arms length with the other.

"I feel sorry for you. You're all blinded by the TRUTH!"

# 9
"If Noah didn't cause the seashells to be mountins then how do u
think the fishes got up there by walking on the fins or flying or what? And I'm
not ignorent I just want to show if you can't answer."

Apparently it's a commonly known fact among the rabid right that Noah caused the Flood. Not God. In case you were wondering. You were ignorent of that fact, weren't u?

Under the "woops" category # 8
"If people evolved from monkeys why are there still people?"

We haven't evolved into apes yet. Charlton Heston was a few decades too early.

Under "unclear on the concept" Top Ten Worst Creationist Args # 7
"You're the one who is doing the assuming here. It says in the bible that God made Adam fully formed and the stars the same way. So the
light was already on the way to Earth. Anything else is pure guesswork on your part"

# 6
"My claims are valid and easy to understand once you free yourself from your prision of LOGIC"

# 5 and the winner of the Utter Lack of Logic Award! Also known as "The Hovind Award"
"You just said theories can never be proven. Since creation is the only theory that has been proven creation wins again!"

# 4
"Science shows God even holds the atoms together though some of the partcicles have been positive charges and would push on each other. So making the Earth would be a lot easier for him than you think."

# 3
"Tell me how nothing came from nothing?????"

Top Ten Worst Creationists Statements of all time runner up! Remember that if our grand prize winner is unable to fulfill his or her duties as poster child for creationist stupidity, the runner up will step in ...
"If the ape and man had a common ancestor, that makes the ape the common ancestor by DEFAULT!"

And the #1 Worst Creationists Argument for Sept. and winner of the coveted Golden Gould Award.....
"How do evolutionists explain the Carribean Explosion?"

I may be a Christian (okay, I AM a Christian), but wilfully rejecting what we've learned about the earth in order to cling to a literal interpretation of the Biblical creation story? Just plain ignorent. ;)

Why does it have to be one or the other? Is it not possible that both theories may be correct? Could not evolution be the way God created this world? Who said it had to be six literal days? The Bible? Moses wrote those words. He was as fallible as any other human. On the other hand, many environmental scientists I know seem to believe more in the existance of God (or some sort of guiding hand) the more they learn of the secrets of nature. Just a thought. Talk amongst yourselves. Discuss. :)

P.S. "ignorant" is spelled with an "a", not an "e". :P

Re ignorant/ignorent: I know that. I was making a subtle joke. See if you can get it. :)

And I agree with you-- I believe in a Creator, and I believe in the facts we've discovered through science, and I don't believe the two are mutually exclusive. There are things that are as far outside our current comprehension as quantum physics would have been to the Israelites. Does that mean quantum physics doesn't exist?

I really like the word quantum.
