50 Reasons I Reject Evolution

1.) Because I don’t like the idea that we came from apes… despite that humans are categorically defined and classified as apes.

2.) Because I’m too **** and/or lazy to open a **** book or turn on the Discovery Science Channel.

3.) Because if I can’t immediately understand how something works, then it must be bullshit.

4.) Because I don’t care that literally 99.9% of all biologists accept evolution as the unifying theory of biology.

5.) Because I prefer the idea that a (insert god of choice) went ALLA-KADABRA-ZAM MOTHAH-FUCKAHS!!!

6.) Because I can’t get it through my thick logic-proof skull that evolution refers ONLY to the process of speciation, not to abiogenesis, or planet formation, or big bang cosmology, or whether God exists, or where they buried Jimmy Hoffa, or why the sky is blue, or how many licks it takes to get to the center of a **** Tootsie Pop.

7.) Because the fossil record doesn’t comprise the remains of every single living thing that ever existed on this 4.5 billion year old planet, even though fossilization is a rare process that only occurs under very specific circumstances.

8.) Because science has yet to produce any transitional species… except for the magnitudinous numbers of them found in the fossil record which don’t count because… I uh, OOH LOOK! A SHINY OBJECT!!! *runs away*

9.) Because I know nothing about Darwin except that he had a funny beard.

10.) Because the theory of evolution (which, according to scientists, perfectly explains the richness and diversity of life on Earth) contradicts biblical literalism… ya know, flat Earth with a firmament that keeps out the water, talking snakes, people rising from the dead, bats are birds, flamey talking bushes, virgin births, food appearing out of nowhere, massive bodies of water turning into blood… etc etc.

11.) Because I think the word “theory” actually means: “random stabs in the dark” when it really means: "an explanation of certain phenomena that is well-supported by a large body of facts and often unifies similarly well-supported hypotheses" i.e. atomic theory, gravitational theory, germ theory, cell theory, some-people-are-dumb-motherfuckers-theory, etc.

12.) Because the fact that science is self-correcting annoys me. Most of my other beliefs are rigidly fixed and uncorrectable.

13.) Because I am under the severely mistaken impression that evolution implies someone in my very recent ancestry was a chimp.

14.) Because everything appears designed to my mind which was expertly tuned by nature to perceive design, probably as a survival mechanism.

15.) Because some secretly fabulous closet-dwelling televangelist (who unironically preaches hate towards gays) told me that evolution is Satan’s way of leading me away from God.

16.) Because that same guy (who was also caught snorting blow off a male hooker’s shiny naked ass) told me that God planted those fossils to test my faith.

17.) Because I’m 100% correct about everything 100% of the time and there is 0% chance that some snooty Oxford educated scientist with numerous honorary doctorates could possibly know something that I don’t.

18.) Because I don’t know that fossils are found in sedimentary strata corresponding to their age as one would expect if evolution were true.

19.) Because I don’t understand why, if we share common ancestry with chimps, there are still chimps. And when someone with more than three brain cells in their head inevitably replies: “for the same reason Americans share common ancestry with Brits but there are still Brits, I can’t follow the logic. It’s just too big a leap. Who am I, Evil Knievel?

20.) Because my mom dropped me on my head when I was a baby.

21.) Multiple times.

22.) On purpose.

23.) Because the idea that life evolved naturally over billions of years is infinitely less believable than the idea that an 800 year old man crammed two of every species into a giant wooden boat when the entire planet flooded, an event for which there is absolutely no geological evidence whatsoever and also makes no **** sense at all.

24.) Because Jesus totally rode around on a **** t-rex. He’s just that badassed. And also, did you know that t-rexes were vegetarians? Ken Ham says so and I believe it.

25.) Because I don’t realize that saying “microevolution is possible but macroevolution isn’t” is as **** as saying “I can pick my nose for one second but I cannot pick it for 10 seconds.”

26.) Because the education system failed me miserably.

27.) …and then took a big wet dump on my face.

28.) Because I think that knowing how nature works magically obliterates all of its beauty.

29.) Because I didn’t know that evolution has been tested and observed in laboratories.

30.) Because when confronted with that, I refuse to believe it. It’s obviously a scientific conspiracy aimed at turning everyone on the planet into atheists... even though evolution says nothing about god's nature nor whether he, she, it, or they exist.

31.) Because I’m too **** to realize that Social Darwinism has nothing to do with evolution and is actually a pseudo-scientific bastardization that real science largely rejects.

32.) Because the planet and all the life on it was designed for humans… kinda like how the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY was designed specifically for the dust-bunnies that may accumulate on the floors.

33.) Because I don’t realize that if we actually found croco-ducks in the fossil record, it would falsify evolution.

34.) Because plenty of respectable people like Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Mike Huckabee (who are not scientists) don’t accept evolution, and that somehow validates my opinion.

35.) Because my mother didn’t know not to drink while she was pregnant. She also didn’t know not to repeatedly throw herself down a flight of stairs in an attempt to undo the accident of screwing someone who voted for Bush both times.

36.) Because I don’t know that “irreducible complexity” has been debunked a frazillion times by a frazillion different people and is no more credible an argument than “NEEN-er NEEN-er NEEN-er, I’m right and you’re wrong.”

37.) Because I have never seen a duck evolve into a cat over night, despite the fact that such a thing would be contrary to all known scientific disciplines.

38.) Because I have no imagination, learning is too much effort, I don’t like proven facts, change scares me, and I think deoxyribonucleic acid is something I’m supposed to clean my bathroom floors with.

39.) Because evolution means that I absolutely MUST reject everything else I know, abandon all my beliefs, and start aping around my house like a **** monkey. OOOh-ooohh-ooohohh -OOOOOOHHHHHH!!!!!

40.) Because I haven’t put my cave on the market and moved into the 21st century yet. I’m waiting for the cave market to rebound from the recent financial meltdown.

41.) Because I don’t know what an atavism is and if you told me, I still wouldn't believe it. Too weird.

42.) Because I don’t know that evolution explains methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and also provides the answer in preventing it from turning into a superbug and killing massive numbers of people.

43.) Because I don’t know that evolution is routinely used in medicine to diagnose and treat certain illnesses such as genetic ailments, bacterial infections, and viral infections.

44.) Because I believe there is a strong comparison between designed inanimate objects such as buildings, paintings, and watches (which we know were pieced together from identifiable components by human beings) and living organisms (which reproduce with genetic variation under the effects of environmental attrition).

45.) Because I see no significant similarities between humans and apes. *scratches my ass-crack then smells my fingers*

46.) Because I think I’m too special to have been crafted by any natural process and the entire planet, solar system, galaxy, and universe were created with me especially in mind.

47.) Because I unquestioningly swallow the ignorant anti-science bullshit spewed directly from the fraudulent **** asses of people like Ken Ham, Ted Haggard, Fred Phelps, and Kent Hovind.

48.) Because I’m a freethinker and freethinking really means ignoring anything that contradicts what I already believe.

49.) Because I don’t know what confirmation bias is.

50.) Because despite the fact that in all my years of life, I have never seen any magic, I still believe magic is the answer to anything I don’t immediately comprehend.

Ladies and gentlemen, I rest my case. Quod erat demonstrandum, I **** win. Take that you EVILutionists!

Musiikin kieli on kuin onkin universaaliaPerjantai 20.03.2009 11:15

Ovatko musiikin herättämät tilat, kuten iloisuus, pelottavuus ja suru, vain opittuja malleja?

Usein esimerkiksi duuria kuulee luonnehdittavan "iloiseksi" ja mollia "surulliseksi" sävellajiksi. Minä ja monet ystäväni olemme miettineet, ovatko esimerkiksi mollipainotteiset sävellykset surullisia vain siksi, koska niitä oli alkujaan sovellettu surun ilmaisemiseen. Ehkäpä tänä päivänä iloiseksi tulkittavat kappaleet olisivat surullisen kuuloisia, jos duuria olisi alun perin käytetty herättämään surua mollin sijaan?

Tämä tutkimus vastaa kysymykseen melkoisen kattavalla määrällä informaatiota. Lopputulos oli, että molli herättää surua ja duuri iloa riippumatta siitä, onko kuuntelija tällaista käyttäytymismallia behavioristisesti omaksunut.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/03/090319132909.htm

"Native African people who have never even listened to the radio before can nonetheless pick up on happy, sad, and fearful emotions in Western music, according to a new report published online on March 19th in Current Biology. The result shows that the expression of those three basic emotions in music can be universally recognized, the researchers said."

Hienoa, että nyt saatiin melkoisen kattava ja perusteellinen tutkimus aiheesta, jota onkin pohdittu jo melkoisen pitkään. Kyllä tiede on hieno asia!
http://books.google.fi/books?id=6_nd2DZ-h-UC&dq=Intoxication:+The+Universal+Drive+for+Mind-Altering+Substances&printsec=frontcover&source=bl&ots=Au5-8E6bZg&sig=dIpb5p-W9CpLe1gdGbK3ErdpJTU&hl=fi&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=6&ct=result#PPA33,M1

Lukekaa ehdottomasti, mikäli haluatte tietää paljon enemmän päihtymisen tieteestä, sekä sen kulttuurihistoriasta ja myös luonnollisesta kokonaisvaltaisuudesta. Intoxication haastaa vanhat ja pinttyneet ajatusmallit, joiden mukaan päihtyminen olisi pelkkä kulttuurillinen ilmiö.

Kirja on erittäin arvostetun psykofarmakologian professorin, Ronald Siegelin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_K._Siegel), kirjoittama, ja sisältää mukaansatempaavan ja kattavan tietopankin perustarpeesta, jota me kaikki jollain tavalla tyydytämme.

Kirjan voi ostaa mm. Amazon.comista: http://www.amazon.com/Intoxication-Universal-Drive-Mind-Altering-Substances/dp/1594770697

Suosittelen!

"Siegalin teos tulee olemaan kiistanalainen, mutta hänen näkökulmaansa siitä, että päihtyminen on kulttuurillisen ilmiön lisäksi luonnon tosiasia, ei saa jättää huomiotta. Intoxication-kirjan lukemisen tulisi olla edellytys kansakuntien huumetsaareille."
- Los Angeles Timesin arvostelu

"Lukemalla tämän kirjan tulee tietoiseksi huumeongelman monista eri näkökannoista, psykoaktiivisen aineiden hyödyllisyydestä ja vaarallisuudesta, sekä niiden painoarvosta lääketieteessä, uskonnollisissa rituaaleissa ja päivittäisessä elämässä. Vaikuttavaa ja kiehtovaa."
- Albert Hofmann, kemian tohtori, yli sadan tieteellisen artikkelin ja "LSD: My Problem Child"-teoksen kirjoittaja, ja yksi "Plants of the Gods"-teoksen kirjoittajista.

Dragonfly, butterfly Keskiviikko 18.03.2009 02:41

Locked
we pretend to be here for others
find ourselves
something new
something cynical
impulsive, schematic

However
alone
the proximity of longing
puzzled by beating gestures

Gradually
completely
beautiful
painful
around the neck
intertwined

I am ready to want you,
to strangle you into the most beautiful fragrance
but in the morning we feel ready
to love something in common

Blacks and whites
days and nights
dragonflies and butterflies

Us.
