What could possibly go wrong?

 

 

The chimp gives it back!

 

Tribal squabbling leads to mass genocide, displaced millions, famine, disease, squalor?

 

But even more terrifying.....  Bob Geldof resurrection!

This is one of the big problems created by the current political climate. People begin to think it is legitimate to call into question the integrity of just about anything.
 
The quantity and quality of evidence, across many different fields, in support of the theory of evolution is utterly overwhelming.It's as near to a demonstrable fact as it is possible to get. 
 
Anyone who believes the theory of evolution is false is (in my view) not being intellectually honest with themselves. If you are truly open to follow the evidence to it's natural conclusion you will believe in evolution.



Afternoon VI. Not everyone comes to the same conclusions thought, do they? Some people look at the (inconclusive) evidence and think quite reasonably that there are an awful lot of gaps and missing links for it to be classed as irrefutable fact.
Unless of course you happen to make a living out of teaching it as such ... then you wouldn’t relish the prospect of people asking “awkward” questions and challenging the status quo. This is what is happening in universities across the world. The scientific establishment is crying out for a “reformation” much like the Roman Catholic Church 500 years ago.

This guy puts it rather well...

Confused!

 

Tribal squabbling has already caused much of what you’re saying. 

 

Or do do you mean tribal squabbling amongst the chimps. I think their territorial disputes, even if one tribe had superior weaponry wouldn’t have such severe consequences. Primates are genenerally less evil than mankind. 

 

 

Not not sure about the chimp in the Whitehouse though:D

Depends on your definition of evil I guess, but they get up to some pretty twisted stuff, murder, gang rape, infanticide, the lot.

Yeah but :001_smile:

 

I'm saying that nature is incredibly cruel, but I think that the things that you've mentioned are driven by instinct and the necessities of survival, they are baser instincts. Mankind, as a more evolved species makes choices, we don't meet a woman with children and consider killing hers that our own with her survive and are dominant. Most of don't go out and gang rape a women because she's obviously ovulating and wants/needs to breed.

 

Saying that some people may not evolved as far as others :sneaky2: and still appear to give in to their animal instincts.

It's all pretty silly. Why would a clothing brand put a racist advert out?...for a start, it won't make them money. The truth is, adverts like this have to have a certain number of black/Asian whatever people in them. This little lad was probably photographed wearing dozens of items of clothing that day. Because the photographer and ad designers were NOT racist, they didn't see the potential of offence...it's just a young lad, probably a 'cheeky monkey' to boot. What a sad little world it is becoming....
