Quote# 27141

How can man be descending and evolving at the same time? Which is it?It appears that Darwin can't make a statment without contradicting himself.

No he doesn't.

Shut up carico. I'd be surprised if you could actually contain the intelligence to wipe your own ass, much less understand evolution and the fact that Darwin didn't make every observation about evolution, or that he was even the first. But I've already said more than you can comprehend.

Yes, descent can mean "a decline in" as well as one's ancestral lineage, but then evolution means "a change or development in" and does not inevitably mean progress. Better adapted is not better overall. So not only does the descent in The Descent of Man not mean what Heidi make it out to, it would not contradict evolution even if it did.

Incidentally, Heidi means 'noble one', so this person can't even write her name without contradicting herself.

Doctor Whom

So you see a contradiction in that, but not in the Holy Bible? Okay.

Heidi no like big words.

More from the Heidi Chronicles - a never-ending collection of stupid of carico proportions.

Hi, Carico,

Still having difficulties with basic language and scientific concepts, I see. I thought your time away was being used for educational purposes. Evidently I was wrong.

Don't we have social workers for people like this?

When you learn to drive, you begin with start and stop, not dense traffic.

Now, learn basic math and biology first.

Funny stuff.

Heidi, when you have children and they have children, etc. all those people who are descended from you are called your descendents. We descend from our ancestors. Get it? That's what Darwin meant by the "descent of man".

"Descending" and "evolving" only appear to contradict each other if you misunderstand evolution and think evolution involves "ascending". It doesn't. There's no evolutionary ladder.

OK Carico, try this next time. Go get an education, then come back and change your screen name.

7/11/2007 9:20:07 AM


Well evolution isn't a stairway to perfection so there is no contradiction. Who says mankind is descending anyway?

Darwin can't make a statement of any kind.

He died in 1882.

7/11/2007 10:58:47 AM


I think they get confused between Darwin and Dawkins. Similar spelling, both evil scientists, etc, etc...

Thats why they talk like Darwin is still alive.

Mister Spak

It appears Heidi can't post and makes sense at the same time.

Calling Dr. Cox...

7/11/2007 1:12:45 PM


This is a repeat, isn't it?

That or someone else said exactly the same thing before...

7/11/2007 2:29:07 PM


I almost pissed myself laughing. Thanks Carico you made my day!

7/11/2007 2:52:35 PM

Old Viking

But descending means ... evolving doesn't mean ... oh, shit, it's Carico.

7/11/2007 4:27:39 PM


and how can a towel get wet as it dries?!!?

7/11/2007 4:34:18 PM

never been there

Thats why they talk like Darwin is still alive.

Or because it's dull having such a hate-on for someone who's already dead.

7/11/2007 6:49:18 PM

cui bono

and how do we cut a tree down and then cut it up ?

7/11/2007 8:37:48 PM


How can you get down off an elephant - you can only get down off a duck?

Heidelberg needs to go do some biblical reading about the ascension of Elijah/Elisha and or Yeshua if she wants some inane contradictions.

7/11/2007 8:48:21 PM


And why is it that night falls but day breaks?
