Quote# 54692

Some light bulbs are made in almost the same shape as eggs! They may be similar in appearance, but does this mean that eggs and light bulbs are related? The atom resembles our SOLAR SYSTEM (electrons orbit around the nucleus of an atom just as planets orbit around the nucleus of our solar system, which is the sun). Does this mean that our solar system evolved from an atom? Can you think of some ways in which airplanes are similar to birds? Does this mean that airplanes evolved from birds?

None of the things you cite reproduce or have genetic mutations (except the birds), your argument doesn't apply.

Observable Reality

That's funny; I'm pretty sure that the planets in the solar system have predictable orbits rather than orbitals with probability functions. You never got past the Bohr model of the atom, huh?

I'm a bit confused by this. He's a fundy, which is obvious by the way he seems to think that light bulbs and eggs looking alike disproves evolution. But he's not a geocentrist. He's a fucking clueless idiot, of course, but I'm just surprised that he's not a geocentrist. How does that work? How can you believe the bible, and not be a geocentrist? Ow, now my head hurts.

Actually, the ideas for human flight came from watching and studying birds in flight, so in a way, I suppose, through a stretch, you could say that airplanes "evolved" from birds.

Damn stupid, not sure it's necessarily fundie.

Why do you idiots keep trying to compare inanimate object to things with DNA?

In some ways, sumira resembles homo sapiens, but they're obviously not related.

You don't even try to understand the ToE, do you? Probably afraid it might start making sense.

Which came first - the chicken or the light bulb?

If necessity is the mother of invention, did bread give birth to an airplane?

LIGHT BULBS DO NOT REPRODUCE!!!
SOLAR SYSTEMS DO NOT REPRODUCE!!!
ATOMS DO NOT REPRODUCE!!!
AIRPLANES DO NOT REPRODUCE!!!
EVOLUTION ONLY APPLIES TO THINGS THAT REPRODUCE!!!

And I guess your head didn't evolve from MY ASS, but come on, there IS a resemblance.

Have you noticed the odd way that people look at you whenever you speak out loud?

Umm, atoms don't look like scaled down solar systems. That's just some doofus's idea that's been stuck in common thought for way too long. But thanks for playing "Miss the Metaphor".

God, you're fucking stupid. You don't understand how life works at all, do you?

If we're doing that stupid question (Which came first,the chicken or the light bulb?), I'm not going to play.

Airplanes can't perch so they're not related to birds.

Happy now?

Makes perfect sense. because some things look alike, you assume we think they evolved from each other. THIS FISH SCULPTURE EVOLVED FROM A FISH!

How can you fail to understand the difference between a living organism and an inanimate object? This is kindergarten-level stuff, people!

What is it that makes Yahoo answers such a attractive site for dumbasses? Does it have a sign somewhere saying:

"Are you a total dumbass? Please join us and find a whole clusterfuck of dumb questions & answers written by many other dumbasses just like you!"

?
