Evolution is "extremely farfetched" and "terribly unscientific," says Pat Boone.

Praise the Lord.

I thinking of nominating Boonie to wear the Fecal Fedora this week (he says he's going to write about evolution again, the poor bastard)

This is the kind of stuff that pisses me off.

Some idiot, who doesn't know jack shit about evolution, starts to think that Satanic Hippies are controlling the government. So of course, part of their agenda includes teaching evolution. Makes perfect sense, of course.

It's obvious that this guy doesn't know shit about evolution when he says "why are apes still apes? Why aren't they developing language?"

First of all, from what it sounds, he probably still thinks (wrongly) that evolution has some sort of "goal" or goes through a bunch of pre-determined steps (i.e. First we learn to walk, the we evolve to speak, then we evolve to reason, and then we evolve to get telepathic powers). Of course, evolution doesn't work that way.

If people really knew how evolution worked, they wouldn't really have a problem with it. After all, we have no problem with the fact that the economy, complex as it is, evolved from the simple idea of exchanging one thing for another. The good ideas survived and continued, the bad ideas that didn't work were killed off, and random ideas and inventions started to give way to more and more complexity. Right now, the economy is so complex, it blows my mind just to think about the complicated process that goes into making something trivial as a water bottle.

This guy is such a fucktard. An equivalent would be if I denied chemistry, thinking wrongly, that atoms really were nothing but a bunch of billard balls bouncing around at random.

There are so many retards who think like him that I don't see any reason why this particular douchebag deserves the honor anymore than the next.

Because its timely. What could be timelier than a has-been jeetard having this epiphany: one needn't know a scintilla of science and yet still be publicly critical of established scientific theory.

Anyway I'll wait to see what fecal froth is spewed in Boonie's next missive before tossing him a Turd Topper.

It's incredible how irrational some people can be. Only illiterate people and retards would take this guy seriously.

Blasphemy! The economy exists today as it always has, the way god made it in the first place. :)

Pat Boone, descendent of the legendary pioneer Daniel Boone, has been a top-selling recording artist, the star of his own hit TV series, a movie star, a Broadway headliner, and a best-selling author in a career that has spanned half a century. During the classic rock & roll era of the 1950s, he sold more records than any artist except Elvis Presley.
Gee, I guess they forgot to mention his Ph.D. in biology that would allow him to make such authoritative statements about evolution. I mean, WND cares about credibility, right? Right?

Could it be that this whole evolution idea has grown out of a deep desire to escape the implications that necessarily accompany the concept of an infinite Intelligence, a Creator?
Even if ID had a firm intellectual footing, why would the existence of a Creator necessarily mean we owe him anything?

A part of me knew it, I suppose. Time to let go of one more delusion. Belief in humanity--, now holding at -42.
