Other monkeys.

They sure don't come from rocks, crazy. (!?)

Where does all this \"we evolved from rocks\" stuff come from? Hovind?

Scientists never said that we evolved from Rocks. Please, if you're going to critisise, get straight information.

Creationists believe that we were formed from dirt.
Now, don't try to tell me otherwise because if not, then where do rainbows come from?

That's it, where do I file the paperwork to resign my membership of the human race?

I can't follow the new strawmen. The 5.3 Edition is too distorted.

Strictly speaking, those first organic chemicals that formed the first amino acids (See Miller Urey experiment, etc) that eventually progressed to various other interacting and eventually replicating chemical structures that led eventually to cellular life, which then evolved into multicellular life, probably did come, at least in part, from various inorganic minerals and rocks eroded by some solvent (very probably rain, river and seawater) whilst supplied with copious thermal and maybe electrical energy.

The thing is, it sounds less plausible if you leave out those various steps and go straight from a bunch of inorganic minerals and energy to evangelical ministers and other primates.

It's no different from, say, the theory of relativity in the sense that if you just state its effects to somebody (rocks to investment brokers for the former; mass-energy equivalence, time dilation, curved, 4-dimensional spacetime, the absolute constant speed of light for different inertial frames and other weirdness for the latter), they'll think it's bunk, but if you set out the axioms and observations and work through the logic and equations step by tedious step, it's perfectly clear.

This is fundie lunacy at its finest.

Ok, you got me. Monkeys come from rocks.

Damn. And this whole evolution gig was looking so promising. Back to the drawing board guys.

The Monkies are British, aren't they? And getting a little long in the tooth, I might add.

*blinks* Ah-HA! So that's where they're getting confused... XD

See, the Chinese have a trickster-god-type Monkey who was born from a rock. They're just mixing up folktales and reality again!

Another strawman to burn. Yippee.

To crazy's credit, the backpedalling done at the end of the 361 page thread is swift like Cheetah, friend of Tarzan!

Were did this rock idea come from? I thought ambiogensis was clear it was from an ocean rich in organic compounds.

Wait...so monkeys (note the spelling) can only come from rocks? What are you on?

Maybe one should understand a scientific theory before thrashing it.

I think The Monkees were from right here in Los Angeles...


My mother wasn't a rock, not even a rock star, or a rock lobster, but my pappy was a rolling stone. If he'd been a Rolling Stone, maybe I'd be rich today...

Evolution doesnt say we evolved from rocks idiot. Monkeys and
humans evolved from a common ancestor. therefore, YOU FAIL.

This one of the few times I've actually choked on what I was drinking to laugh at a fundie.
