isn't it funny how when they do this kind of crap they always target people to uninformed to argue with them. i would enjoy it if he went after someone like Micheal Behe or one of the many other anti-evolution scientists. but no, lets just pretend there are no scientists challenging macro-evolution.

While I did think this is funny and I get the point he's making, Bill Maher is a huge asshole.

I think it should be illegal or at least really frowned upon for a public official to give vague and ambiguous answers.

If they don't know, or don't care, then they should say that. Otherwise, just state your damn stance on the matter.

Are we not allowed to believe in Genesis and Evolution? I believe In a god who created time, space and matter. Is it so hard to believe he created creatures through evolution? He said 'let there be plants/creatures', not 'I snap my fingers and plants/creatures appear.' There are too many coincidences in the universe for there to not be a higher power, and the probability that everything would come together the way it has is too slim without accounting for a higher power. My faith allows for scientific belief and my scientific study doesn't conflict with my faith.

That being said we should have an IQ test to serve in any political office.

Here's the problem with that line of thinking. Let's say I have cards numbered 1 to 500 trillion. I pick a card at random and I choose 547,201,324,329. Does that mean that I was ordained to pick that number? That it was destiny? The chances of me picking that card are 1 in 500 trillion, but I still picked it. Does that mean that 547,201,324,329 is a magic number, a special number? Does it mean anything that I picked that number?

No, it doesn't. It also doesn't mean anything that there are a lot of coincidences. It means NOTHING that, in your words, "the probability that everything would come together the way it has is too slim". If things didn't come together in the way they are right now, they would have come together in some other way that isn't what we have now. Your argument boils down to "If things were different, things would be different".

What coincidences are you referring to, anyway? The fact that the earth was formed at a good distance from the sun to harbour life? That we have a stable moon? That our orbit isn't too eccentric and there aren't that many celestial bodies whizzing around our solar system for potential crashes? That over billions of years of evolution, humans emerged to create civilization and invent?
All of these things have an astronomically tiny chance of occurring in just the right way for life to have evolved on earth the way it did. But that's the point - it's ASTRONOMICAL odds, astronomy referring to space, and space is really ******* big. If there's a 1 in a trillion chance of life developing on a planet, then the chances of life existing somewhere else in the universe is really, REALLY high.

The argument is also just lazy. The entire point of the theory of evolution and natural selection is that it happens over time in NATURE, and there isn't any guidance, so to claim that there is in fact guidance and "god dun it" is just bad argumentation.

this is silly

His problem isn't with an omnipotent God, but with a talking snake

You guys gotta keep in mind, throw omnipotence into the equation and, by definition, EVERYTHING is now possible. EVERYTHING, noah, resurrection, Job, revelations, EVERYTHING, not one part of it is absurd. With omnipotence, of course.
#12 to #10 - minelava (04/30/2014) [-]
You're right. Let me fix that. "Whereas on one hand we have documented footage of all known snakes on earth without the ability to talk."

Somehow I knew you'd get caught up on that before I even posted that.

And a religious figure does not equal an omnipotent being. The Pope is a religious figure.

We also can't prove that the flying spaghetti monster doesn't exist. We can just make the smart assumption that since all known types of spaghetti and meatballs don't fly around as deities, that it probably doesn't exist.

And if rational discussion is anti-religious bigotry, then you may want to take another look at what exactly you're defending there.

Why does everyone argue about this when there is no right or wrong answer. Nothing can be for sure proven because nobody was there.
Also, i think futurama has the best example this argument in a clockwork origin, s6e9

...What do you mean, there is no right or wrong answer? It's science, there is definitely a right answer. Even if we're not entirely sure of it, we can eliminate lots of wrong answers.

I mean, he's right though that the scientific community is divided on some of the specifics of evolution. It kind of annoys me when people portray evolution, or the Big Bang Theory, as immutable facts when it's more likely that 100 years from now, they will have been replaced or at the very least refined and significantly changed.
#13 to #4 - praemium (04/30/2014) [-]
The dispute is how, by which progress and force, did evolution take place. No one serious doubts evolution took place, meaning the life forms evolved. Darwinism, aka Natural selection, is only the most probable and therefore the most popular one.

We should indeed frown upon people who do not "believe" it, as it is not only silly, but outright dangerous. Evolution isn't just portrayed as an immutable fact, it IS an immutable fact.

My problem with religious anti-evolutionists is this:   
   
You're not allowed to reject the theory of evolution because there is "not enough evidence" if you believe in any religion, because there isn't any evidence for that.   
   
Either accept things on faith, or don't. Don't play favorites. Besides, the theory of evolution has ridiculous amounts of evidence supporting it.

The problem isn't that religious people run the country, it's that we have people running the country at all.

This is from Religulous, which is actually a pretty good movie if you like seeing Bill Maher being a complete asshole to religious people. Well, and a lot of other people, but mostly religious people.
