Evolution: the most USELESS theory ever invented.

The theory of evolution has no value to anyone, or anything. In fact, I challenge anyone to show one single field of scientific study that would be impacted negatively if Darwin had never came up with his silly theory.

Agree. Completely useless.

The fact is that evolution has contributed nothing to science. Some claim that Biology rests on the theory, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Biology is a hard science, done in the lab. A biologist could do his job just fine without evolution. Tell me I'm wrong. You can't.

Darwinian Theory says that small, furry, hooved aquatic creatures became Blue whales. What?

Darwinism was created as a crackpot theory, and the militant darwinists ran with it as a cult-like dogma, and they made sure no one in the field was allowed to oppose it without fear of losing their jobs or serious ridicule. And if you actually study the theory in depth and listen to its adherants' presentations, the more insane it gets and the crazier and more incoherant the claims. In reality, it makes absolutely no sense.

Side: Agree. Completely useless.

That's because you are scientifically illiterate. ;) Or at least that's what the opposition always says to me. Basically, their argument is that YOU are stupid. Puhleease!

Side: Agree. Completely useless.

Listen to Phil Gingrich on Rhodocetus. The "flippers are assumed". Oh yes, of course they were...

Side: Agree. Completely useless.

It is such a ridiculous theory that Richard Dawkins, the Darwinian Priest, is now saying "we don't need the fossil record" and that DNA was seeded on Earth by "advance aliens".... Ahem.... Advanced aliens who somehow magically leap frogged over the Fermi Paradox...

Side: Agree. Completely useless.

If you look at what has become of this extremist Democrat Party, one should more likely believe in devolving of species.

I thought evolution was suppose to facilitate survival of the fittest.

The Democrat Party has devolved into radical ideologs fixated on No Restriction abortions of viable babies, and forcing every public school to allow so called Transgender boys into our daughter's bathrooms.

Can you imagine a Party staying viable with such extreme fixations on the plight of political correct groups such as LGBTPYZABC....... and radical pro abortion feminists?

Maybe I'm looking at this wrong. As we see with Democrats losing the Whitehouse, the Congress, the Senate, the State legislatures, the governorships, talk radio, etc. etc. maybe they are going extinct as they should.

Here's an atheist biologist who thinks that Darwinism is junk. You don't need to be a theist to see that Darwinian theory is a pipe dream.

Virology, vaccination, antibiotics, pharmacology.

There are four.

Side: Disagree. I'm an idiot.

None of which have anything to do with evolution. Try again, spanky.

Side: Agree. Completely useless.

The fact that you think none of those have anything to do with evolution means that you don't understand what evolution is.

Viruses do not evolve. They incorporate new genes into their RNA, which is why we always need new flu vaccines. They do not evolve. They are still a flu virus, though slightly modified.

Vaccines are modified versions of whatever you are trying to prevent. They are inert, which allows our immune system to develop antibodies. This is not evolution. It is adaptation. Or, more precisely, our bodies doing what they were designed to do. Evolution has nothing to do with it.

Antibiotics. It is commonly believed that this is evolution in action. What really happens is that antibiotics kill most of the bacteria. A few survive. They do this because they have lost the ability to ingest and metabolize what killed the other bacteria. This is not evolution, since it involves the loss of an ability it once had.

Finally, what the hell does evolution have to do with drugs? That has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. Pharmacology involves chemistry. More precisely, chemistry as it relates to masking certain symptoms. BTW, drugs have never cured anything. They only treat the symptoms. So, how does that relate to evolution?

Side: Agree. Completely useless.

What do you seem to expect evolution is? That viruses should suddenly become Gods?

Ah, you've been watching too many fairy tales and Pokemon. Otherwise, those viruses are, after all, smarter than you at least.

Side: Disagree. I'm an idiot.

Vaccination?? immunization? We know that viruses and bacteria evolve. Hence why we constantly need new vaccines and antibiotics. Youre a moron

Side: Disagree. I'm an idiot.

The only claim stupider than that is the other things you believe in.

You're pretty much the worst qualities of the most pitiable people here combined.

Because of your silly title I don't even have to defend evolution in this debate, I need only show it is not the most useless theory ever invented. So here you go. Here's a whole list, including phrenology...

There is no way studying bumps on the head which have no correlation to behavior would be more useful than studying changes in fossil records over time which indeed do show changes in a species even if you don't accept full evolutionary theory itself.

Side: Disagree. I'm an idiot.

So where did you learn yours? In school? In 1955? Uh huh. That's a lie.

Hello GW:

I'm 74. You think I'm lying about that.. I have NO idea why. If I was gonna LIE, I'd lie about being YOUNGER, not OLDER.

But, I think you're pissed off because I'm a decorated Vietnam war vet.. Or it could be that I'm a successful businessman. All the things you're NOT..

Or it could be that I kick your ass in our debates.. I have no idea..

But, I see that you're a hater.. And, haters gonna hate.

PS> 1955 is about right, though. I was 12, and knew a few things.

Side: Disagree. I'm an idiot.

Hello Mr.

This is pretty simple.. The field of biology would NOT exist without evolution.. There would be NO modern medicine without evolution.. I KNOW you don't understand that. Ain't nothing I can DO about that..

Mutations have nothing to do with darwinism. Bacteria mutate in circles back to the original strand all the time because they cannot evade being bacteria. You need to actually study mutations and Darwinian theory if that is the basis for your thinking.

Hello again, GW:

When I said the poster wouldn't understand my answer, I knew there'd be others.. The poster wanted to know if there was a field of study that was affected by evolution, and I gave him one..

Biology existed well before Darwin was born. And most biological study never mentions evolution. Are you really this far gone?

Side: Agree. Completely useless.

Firstly, I hate to break it to you but Evolution is a proven science and the majority of all scientist believe it occurred. The theory part of evolution is how it happened. Darwin came up with Natural selection while other scientist have come up with theories such as Punctuated Equilibrium. Moving on, the fact of evolution has greatly contributed to many other scientific fields. Without any comprehension of evolution, there would be no study of genetics as no one would believe that traits are passed onto the next generation. Obviously genetics are crucial to finding the cure for several diseases and illnesses such as cancer and HIV.
