Brett J. Vickers Apr-20-93 03:11PM Rawlins debunks creationism [typical Creationist quoting style] king@ctron.com (John E. King) writes: >"The modern theory of evolution is so inadequate that it deserves to be >treated as a matter of faith." -- Francis Hitching Wee. It's the old creationist argumentum ad quotation. Pitiful, dishonest, creationist saps like yourself seem only to know how to takes quotes out of context. Here's another quote from the same source as your quote above: "Evolution and Darwinism are often taken to mean the same thing. But they don't. Evolution of life over a very long period of time is a fact, if we are to believe evidence gathered during the last two centuries from geology, paleontology, molecular biology and many other scientific disciplines. Despite the many believers in Divine creation who dispute this ..., the probability that evolution has occurred approaches certainty in scientific terms." (Hitching, _The Neck of the Giraffe_). Mr. King, next time you quote someone, at least read the rest of what the person has to say before you make a fool of yourself in front of everyone. (Of course, we all know you have probably never even looked at the book; you most likely copied that quote off some list your pastor gave you.) Another creationist builds the case against creationism. Thanks, John! -- Brett J. Vickers "Don't go around saying the world owes you bvickers@ics.uci.edu a living. The world owes you nothing.
