Hopfolk BS: Evolution as Heresy? (259* d) RE: BS: Evolution as Heresy? 17 Oct 05

Well, I'm an atheist, but we all have to live on the same planet. If the choice put before us is either:
a. Do not compromise, endure religious censure. Lose hundreds of years of science in the face of zealous "thought reforms".
b. Compromise, continue believing evolutionary theory but throw the creationists a bone that might just make evolution more acceptable to them.
I would choose... wait... b.

The seemingly rediculous evolutionary changes I referred to are stuff like the Takahe, a bird with no wings that has to walk, using it's beak to climb over obstacles. The damn thing looks disabled. And yes, before you say "Well it's due to the lack of requirement for flight/long legs" etc etc there are evolutionary dead-ends. Mistakes even. The Lobster people. Genetic aberrations, a by-product of the evolutionary process and some of them do not serve function, even though they may replace a more suitable design. Darwin gets hiccups!
