You can't disprove gawd!!!

Yup, and you can't disprove Zeus, Odin, Buddha, or any other deity which has ever been named. Fact is there champ, disproving something is effectively impossible; you are trying to prove a negative, which can't be done.

The other problem is that the burden of proof is on the person making the claim; you claim there's a god, so you must prove it. This is also an extraordinarily wild claim, so you need some major evidence there bucko. In 2,000 years, Xtianity has failed to provide even a shred of evidence aside from philosophical ramblings. Oh, you did know that by definition philosophy can't be proven, right?

I can prove evolution; quite easy actually. In fact, I can actually prove there's not god, at least not the one identified in the beeble. I'll do that tomorrow for ya.

So get this, some cocksucker takes a job at a lab where he will write up all sorts of stuff regarding evolutionary processes regarding zebrafishes, and he gets all pissy when the lab fires his ass for not "believing" in evolution. Uh, d'uh there dipshit; evolution is fact, there is nothing in which to believe. And hate to tell ya, but you got fired for not being able to do the job due to your stupid beliefs.

EVOLUTION IS FACT. Q.E.D. There are not alternative theories, there is no controversy, and there is no reason to deny evolution. Evolution is supported by 150 years of intense scrutiny, a solid fossil record, and not a single case of any evidence to suggest that the theory is wrong.

Evolution is not just a theory either. A scientific theory is an explanation for a model. Scientific facts are the observations we have, such as fossils which show clear transitions into new species. These facts can be used to formulate hypotheses, which are then tested and, if found to hold up, can be used to build a model to represent what we see, which is then in turn explained by our theory. Facts never become laws nor theories; they are all different.

I hate stupid people. I really, really do. Go believe in sky daddy if you want, but for fuck's sake keep your ignorance to yourself and don't go bitching when the rest of us point and laugh.

I Passed!

I did it, I passed my comprehensive examination, all 81 pages of it. I am now officially a doctor; I get the PhD part after the dissertation. Even better, I found that I don't have to defend my comps, only discuss them with my mentor. Wow, this feels good. I'm now a freakin' doctor; I am Dr. Richard Wolford, soon to be Dr. Richard Wolford, PhD. This rizocks.

Ok, that's all for now, I'm celebrating!

Oh, and Jeebus and Gawd had nothing to do with this, only me and the support of friends and family. I didn't pray to pass, didn't plead, go to church, nothing. I busted my fucking ass to do this. I needs no jeebus, only confidence in myself.
