    The Theory of Evolution says nothing about "superior genetic stock".

    That's true - what you think is irrelevant. It's what the theory actually says that is important. And that is NOT what it says. This is why proper education is important.

    Hopefully your daughter learns the truth and not your warped strawman version.

    What exactly is going to come back and bite me in the ass?
    That’s ok. If they’re being lied to, and they work it out. Then they would have thought about it for themselves. Good parents want their children to be intelligent, and able to work things out for themselves.
    In the case of modern kids, they are being indoctrinated.

    You’ve told me on this very platform, that I , as another human being, am incapable of any thought. Or some little kid is more intelligent than me because they can recite dogma, whether it be Christian, Islamic, or Darwinian.
    Of course I can see how stupid that is.
    But a child may really believe that to be the case, and surrender out of fear of being ridiculed in that way.
    That is the power of indoctrinating children.
    The same goes for religious indoctrination as well.

    That’s ok up to a point.
    But at some point, future generations just aren’t going to engage in fireside chats, debate, or discussion. It’s going to become part of their outward expression.
    Despite what any of us may think about darwinism, no one can say it is a fact.
    Being excellent at explaining the theory does not make it a fact. We have to see the facts. Not just the educated. The non educated too, of which there are far more of.

    Q told me, on numerous occasions, that I am basically a retard, because I don’t accept darwinism.
    That means he, and others who think like him, including a grade 5 standard kid, are genetically superior.
    Now he didn’t use the word “genetically””. But if I am unable to think, then genetics must play a role in this.

    Now I am fairly certain he didn’t mean it, I could be wrong, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt.

    But nevertheless. If I was impressionable, and gullible, that could have had a profound effect on me, and future generations of mine.

    Why did he say this?
    Because I think differently to him.

    Not genetically superior, maybe intellectually superior.
    You're not unable to think, just unwilling.
    You might teach your future generations to be gullible but they won't inherit your gullibility.

    You are lying, I have never called you a retard.

    The child is "intellectually" superior. Please use a dictionary.

    Since you are obviously lying about what I said, you cannot in any way be certain other than the fact you're lying.

    Because I never said what you claim I said. Honesty is something you have little to do with, Jan. You can take that one to the bank.

    Unfortunately, if your daughter works out that you've been lying to her, you will not be seen as a good parent.

    It's not dogma, it's science.

    And, you appear to be indoctrinating your children with religious dogma and telling them lies. That will no bode well for you in the long run.

    Retarded; less advanced in mental, physical, or social development than is usual for one's age.

    You said I can’t think? If it was true it would mean that I’m retarded.
    Intellect; the faculty of reasoning and understanding objectively, especially with regard to abstract matters.

    Intellectually superior because he can recite darwinism?
    Lol!! Is being able to do that the definition of ‘intellect’ in your mind?
    Do you really want me to bring the accusations?
    Here you are still acting superior.
    You can’t help it can you?

    Why would you accuse me of lying to my daughter?
    You don’t know me,Q.
    What is your problem?
    Why don’t you show where you think you know I am a liar, instead of bottling whatever feeling this is, up inside.
    I thought we were getting on, but obviously we’re not.
    Is it because I don’t accept darwinism?
    I disagree.
    But that’s no need for belligerence.
    Firstly you don’t know what I tell my children.
    Secondly it’s none of your business how I raise my children. So back off, and grow up.

    I just showed you the facts on which the theory is based. You refuse to read evidence and therefore all of your arguments are based on selective ignorance and are duplicitous.
    Yes they can, every farmer can show you in practice how they apply artificial selection to breed better milk-cows by selecting only the best milk producers for breeding. After a few generations, all milk cows will be better milk producers , from which the best are selected and the evolution of the current Holstein Friesians were bred, which produce large quantities of milk every day, without having any calves to feed. That is an example of artificial evolution and artificial selection.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holstein_Friesian_cattle

    That's artificial evolution, but it is evolution, plain and simple.

    Every domesticated farm animal or household pet is a result of controlled evolution and selection for specific desirable traits. How can you not see this fact that is staring you in the face every day of your life?

    Do you lead such a shallow life that you cannot see how nature functioned billions of years before humans emerged from a common ancestor, through a chance beneficial mutation and natural selection of a successful versatile species, which was able to succesfully cope with its environment and eventually settled in all corners of the world which offered a habitable environment.

    Nature works the same way as a farmer but slower because it deals with wild animals, instead of closely controlled domesticated breeds.

    Every living thing you see is a product of evolution and natural selection for survivability. It's a fact!

    That’s what I was prepared to think, but I’m beginning to have second thoughts.
    Or maybe no thoughts at all, if I can’t think.

    Really?
    So if I accepted theory of evolution, would it mean I am willing to think?
    I wouldn’t teach them to be, because obviously I wouldn’t want them to be. But if that lack of confidence was part of my outward expression, it would rub off on them.

    And, you still can't help but lie about what I said. How very sad.

    I know all that.
    But did you notice this bit at the end?
    It was your own summary.
    There are no facts to back that up.
    I simply disagree with you. That’s all.
    There’s no need to accuse me of living a shallow life, or being unable, or unwilling to think, because I think differently to you, or disagree with you.

    Yea well, I'm sure you spend hours reading your bible and pondering "irreducible complexity".

    Actually I'm wondering why I decided to take you off ignore. click.

    Really?
    You’re not aware of the various groups of AA’s who openly declare white peoples as genetically inferior, based on the idea that life began in Africa, and those Africans seeded the rest of the different ethnic groups, who are genetically watered down Africans?
    They have their scholars who preach darwinism as proof of their claims.

    If you don’t believe me, go and look for yourself. Or don’t. It’s up to you.

    You are proving my point that education is crucial.
