Proof du jour: Darwin was a fool: There is a god "I'd like today's special please." Proof du jour: Darwin was a fool: There is a god "Certainly Monty." "Charles Darwin theorized that species evolved through the process of natural selection over millenia, ascending into a condition of greater and greater superiority. This, in turn, refutes the judeo-Christian account of creation and the existence of god." "However, one can see around one, in the news media, in advertising and popular entertainment, that homo sapiens in, in fact a goober." " Mean, mendacious, abusive, greedy, vile, ignorant, repugnant, destructive...Devoted to football over symphonies, sound bites over literature, lust over love, grunts over conversation, ideology over ideas, impulse over through, loud self-righteousness over quest integrity...They choose from the worst among them to be harangued, taxed, lied to and led to their deaths, rather than think for themselves." "As a race, humanity strives toward inferiority with a resolution that borders on the compulsive...circling the drain with a happy belch and a backwards baseball cap." "Nothing vaguely resembling evolution could have produced a species capable of excreting stupidity, viciousness, cowardice, murder, cruelty, hatred and self-destruction in such unlimited volumes: ergo Darwin was a fool..." "...there is a god." "Quod Erat demonstrandum." "Will prayer help?" "You haven't one."
