Why I No Longer Believe In EvolutionPosted: January 13, 2014
In the past, I’ve taken issue with people who ignore the truths that science proves for us. I’ve thought them naïve at best. At worst, I’ve felt some of them could be accused of putting their own interests above the greater good and ignoring the consequences of their actions upon future generations.
Today, I am renouncing my previous position. I think if people want to put their head in the sand about a scientific fact, we should allow them to bury their heads as deep as they’d like. Don’t want to believe in global warming? Go on and do that; see if I care. I think you’ll find I don’t.
What would make me change my mind like that? Well, because today I saw something that I don’t want to believe. If the video I saw today is true, and if I believe in evolution, the future is too scary to contemplate. As a result, I am no longer believing in science and evolution.
Allow me to explain.
If A Fish Can Do This…
As I skimmed through the news on the web this morning, I came across an interesting story. It seemed to indicate that there was a fish in Africa which is capable of leaping from the water and capturing a bird in flight.
Apparently there had been a rumor that the African Trigger Fish could jump out of the water and capture a bird. I don’t know where such rumors get started or who spreads rumors about fish. I’ve engaged in gossip from time to time, but it never concerned how fish went about the business of being fish.
It appears that scientists captured video that proves the rumor. I should amend that. If you believe those college-educated, egg-headed, elite scientist types, you might be weak enough to believe this proves the rumor:
Yeah, scary, if you believe in science or you are an African bird.
…Then This Is Just A Matter Of Time.
So if evolution is true (which it isn’t, because I say so), fish will get better and better at grabbing swift moving things from the air. The fish who aren’t so advanced will die out and the ones who are will strengthen the gene pool of the species.
Ha. Gene pool. As if such a thing existed. It doesn’t, because I don’t want it to, because it scares me.
If evolution and genes and such really existed, and we factor in that science claims fish are already jumping out of the water at flying stuff, how long would it take for this scene from the film Mega-Shark vs Giant Octopus to become reality?
That’s right, not very long. Not very long until you could find yourself at 20,000 feet, munching your tiny bag of pretzels, and still become fish food. Do you want that? Of course you don’t.
And it won’t happen, if you just don’t believe in science. Remember, facts are what you wish they were, not what anyone can prove.
