1. Yep

The original form (I think):

Debating creationists on the topic of evolution is rather like trying to play chess with a pigeon it knocks the pieces over, craps on the board, and flies back to its flock to claim victory. - Scott D. Weitzenhoffer

9. Yep, happened to a friend of mine.

 

Well, technically he died from injuries from falling off the ladder, but he was 7 ft up and passed out from the heat.

10. Ha!!111! I found it on one of those lists of stupid shit people post on Facebook.

I was going to give it it's own thread, but it seemed to fit the mentality of the people referenced above.

Sadly, I have met people like this.

13. ** Fact- Kepler's Third Law ...

 

... says that liar is a ... er... ignorant liar. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kepler%27s_laws_of_planetary_motion#Third_law)

But in modern astrophysics habital zone is a more quantifiable and far more generalizable concept. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habitable_zone

So guess that means God sucks, huh?
