    Soo… The principle of evolution is sending us to hell? I don’t understand that line.

  2. bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo? says:

    While I don’t currently have any sound, I clicked anyway for I love the kiddies so. Nice that the poem is written out so everyone can enjoy the reminder.

    Yes, evolution did make us all “until” mankine became self aware and developed the tools to direct his own evolution.

    I guess that will be the Follow Up. Also of note, I assume that Mother Teresa and Bin Ladin are supposed to form some sort of continuum but aren’t they very much more alike than different?

  3. aha says:

    Bobbo, I think after listening, this was an attempt at sarcasm. Be glad you don’t have sound, its gonna take an hour to get the dog off the ceiling.

  4. bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo? says:

    Thanks aha – I do plan when I get sound back to go back thru the vids on this site and a few others. Awful involved and “balanced” to be sarcastic except as a whole? Maybe that “going to hell” is the tipoff even though hell did evolve from heaven? Or I suppose, just “put there” in the Creator’s scheme of things.

  5. Benjamin says:

    Funny. Evolutionist don’t believe in Creation so much, that they can’t “create” their own song about evolution, but they have to “adapt” a song about Creation to their purposes.

    I believe God created the world in six days. If you disagree, fine, but please write your own song. Don’t steal Christian songs about Creation.

    Colossians 1:16 “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.”

  6. Benjamin says:

    By the way, here are the real lyrics to this song: http://cyberhymnal.org/htm/a/l/allthing.htm

  7. bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo? says:

    Benji–don’t be so retarded, you might be prevented from humping in the future, and you wouldn’t like that.

    Aren’t there only about 6 basic christian tunes all stolen from the British Navy?

    Stupid comment.

  8. msbpodcast says:

    Bobbo, you never make sense.

    Nobody ever gets what you’re are writing about.

    Do you see a pattern here?

    If you’re… Hey wait… You don’t currently have any sound, I clicked anyway for I love the kiddies so.

    You know, you’re fuckin’ hopeless.

    STOP IT

    You’d try to explain a joke.

    The song is a parody of “All Things Bright And Beautiful.”

    Instead of taking the tack that Monty Python did, it is from a Darwinist perspective.

    Big shit.

    It good for a giggle or two. Beyond that its totally dismissible.

  9. General Tostada says:

    I’m beginning to think that good humor and being able to laugh at ourselves (and one other) might actually be a major new step upwards on that tired old evolutionary ladder.

  10. bobbo, are we Men of Science, or Devo? says:

    My computer doesn’t have any video, so I don’t know what I’m responding to right now. Suffice it to say: “Its comments like yours” that keep me returning to DU will surely fit?

    Ok, seriously–thanks Peepod, you are a tonic. Worth reading review here especially about the dropping of verse #3:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Things_Bright_and_Beautiful

  11. Floyd says:

    Benjamin, you are the one that’s clueless, actually.
    Evolutionists and other scientists don’t “believe in creation” they get their information from observation and science, not from a 2000 year old book. That book is supposedly about ethics–how to live your life in an ethical way, as codified by the Jews and people like Paul.

    There’s very little science in the bible, and most of that was observed and recorded by the Greeks.

  12. AlanWinch says:

    Who made evolution?

  13. Holdfast says:

    #12 and who made them?

  14. PistolPete says:

    God is the static property so that things can exist, evolution is a dynamic property so that things are interesting. They do not oppose each other, only people do that.

  15. jbenson2 says:

    It’s really quite simple.

    The history of evolution: Hydrogen is a light odorless gas, which, given enough time turns into people.

  16. Latin American says:

    Guevara “wise and wonderful”?!

  17. thatsmychin says:

    I second that LA. …..Che….really?

  18. God, Allah and other monikers says:

    Well, I found that Hymn just awful. Bin Laden didn’t get nearly enough air time. I’ve already allowed a lot of innocent children to die today, but I might just add that pipsqueak to the list.

  19. msbpodcast says:

    I pity creationists.

    They live in such a small universe.

  20. The Wrong Guy says:

    #17: The concept of sarcasm is lost on you? Really?

  21. Benjamin says:

    #19 msbpodcast said, “I pity creationists.

    They live in such a small universe.”

    Give it time. Our universe will get bigger. That is unless it contains a lot of mass and starts to get smaller again.

    #11 Floyd said, “There’s very little science in the bible, and most of that was observed and recorded by the Greeks.”

    I recall a Bible story where the scientific method was used. Elijah does all the steps in the scientific method including forming a hypothesis and performing an experiment to test his hypothesis.

    All quotes are from 1 Kings 18 16-40 in the Bible

    [bold] 1.) Elijah asked a question: [/bold]
    ““How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.”

    [bold] 2.) Elijah does research to determine that there are 450 prophets of Baal. [/bold
    “Then Elijah said to them, ‘I am the only one of the LORD’s prophets left, but Baal has four hundred and fifty prophets.'”

    [bold] 3.) Elijah constructs a hypothesis: The true God is more powerful than Baal. [/bold]

    [bold] 4.) Elijah devises an experiment to test the hypothesis. [/bold]

    “’23 Get two bulls for us. Let Baal’s prophets choose one for themselves, and let them cut it into pieces and put it on the wood but not set fire to it. I will prepare the other bull and put it on the wood but not set fire to it.

    24 Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the LORD. The god who answers by fire—he is God.’”

    [bold] 5.) Elijah analyzes the data obtain by the experiment and draws a conclusion. [/bold]

    “25 Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one of the bulls and prepare it first, since there are so many of you. Call on the name of your god, but do not light the fire.” 26 So they took the bull given them and prepared it.

    Then they called on the name of Baal from morning till noon. “Baal, answer us!” they shouted. But there was no response; no one answered. And they danced around the altar they had made.

    27 At noon Elijah began to taunt them. “Shout louder!” he said. “Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.” 28 So they shouted louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears, as was their custom, until their blood flowed. 29 Midday passed, and they continued their frantic prophesying until the time for the evening sacrifice. But there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention.

    30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come here to me.” They came to him, and he repaired the altar of the LORD, which had been torn down. 31 Elijah took twelve stones, one for each of the tribes descended from Jacob, to whom the word of the LORD had come, saying, “Your name shall be Israel.” 32 With the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD, and he dug a trench around it large enough to hold two seahs[a] of seed. 33 He arranged the wood, cut the bull into pieces and laid it on the wood. Then he said to them, “Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood.”

    34 “Do it again,” he said, and they did it again.

    “Do it a third time,” he ordered, and they did it the third time. 35 The water ran down around the altar and even filled the trench.

    36 At the time of sacrifice, the prophet Elijah stepped forward and prayed: “LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. 37 Answer me, LORD, answer me, so these people will know that you, LORD, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”

    38 Then the fire of the LORD fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench.

    39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The LORD—he is God! The LORD—he is God!”

    [bold] 6. Elijah communicates the results [/bold]

    “40 Then Elijah commanded them, “Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!” They seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valley and slaughtered there.”

  23. Benjamin says:

    msbpodcast, how did you bold certain parts of your post? Only answer if the word bold is not bold.

  24. bobbo, Eugenics - letting no seed go to waste says:

    Benji–excellent science. Now duplicate the test.

    Silly sheep. But very instructive to see what passes for “science” in the dogma world.

  25. Benjamin says:

    It was the first recorded use of the scientific method.

    Bobbo, apparently all the prophets of Baal were euthanized at the end of the first experiment. Being unable to locate any supplies of prophets of Baal, so I can’t duplicate the experiment.

  26. Floyd says:

    Ben, your story is a fable, and is unlikely to be a scientific experiment.

    For a start, there’s no control for the experiment. Anyone could have sneaked in and poured alcohol on the bonfire.

    For another, the Greeks were way ahead of the Jews in doing science, so they win.
