Judging from their post history, I'd say the latter, they seem to think mathematics is proof of Intelligent design.

Yeah I realized that it was the latter after I looked at some of his past content. You would think he has a hard time understanding why South Park is funny, as he doesn’t seem to understand that they are making fun of people who are anti-evolution, i.e. Mrs. Garrison throwing poop at Dawkins = how intelligent design people debate.

Why are you refering to me as multiple persons (their and they)?

@Odin11
C`mon you really shouldn`t judge people like that and why do you think you know how i understand things.
Like the fact that according to you i don`t understand South Park and apparently i am not developed enough to see the difference between satire and seriousness.

If one judges that which he does not know, he only limits himself.

A GOOD BBC documentary I just saw:

Warning! Shows graphic images. Viewer discretion is advised!





This is a VERY good documentary, explaining the links between Darwinism and Eugenics. I really think more people should see this.
I've been doing a lot of research and reading into Darwinism, Eugenics, and Malthus. Might want to check this stuff out....

Another good one:




This documentary presents an aspect of the theory of evolution that has so far remained hidden. It unveils the ideological links between Darwinism and totalitarian ideologies like fascism and communism. You will see the fruits of Darwinism in the killing fields of Hitler, Stalin and Mao.

I prefer that to it being my posterity.

That wrong conclusions can be drawn from true premises does not make the true premises untrue.  This is basic logic.

So what? You can't pick and choose which bits of science you want to be real. The fact that people use eugenics doesn't make evolution any less true. Its like saying "people use guns to kill, so I don't believe in metallurgy".

Obviously you're new to the english language if this is the first time you've seen their and they used as singular.

I bet they also believed in mathematics and gravity too. Those b*******!

/facepalm

Edit: BTW Social Darwinism isn't Evolution. Blaming Darwin or Darwinism for something they didn't promote is inane.

@Kowalski, it looks interesting i`ll look at it sometime.

Despite the fact that i don`t really like to go into this i`ll do just do it anyway
you may notice the following in your link:
Though strict prescriptive grammarians regard the singular they as a grammatical error,
and
The "singular" they is the use of this pronoun as a gender-neutral singular rather than as a plural pronoun. The correctness of this usage is disputed.[1][2] The Oxford Dictionaries have an article on the usage, saying that it dates back to the 16th century.[3]
The singular pronoun they is even found in formal or official texts. For example, a 2008 amendment to the Canadian Criminal Code contains the following text:


if a peace officer has reasonable grounds to believe that, because of their physical condition, a person may be incapable of providing a breath sample... (subparagraph 254(3)(a)(ii))

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/They
2 things are noticed: 1 my gender is known (see profile info)  and second you are refering to me and not to a general usage as in When a person talks too much, they learn little."

The fact that this is an international website gives away 2 things: first my understanding of english is not as good as a native (therefore lacking full knowledge of terms and usage) and second is the fact that the correctness of this usage is disputed and even seen as an grammatical error. Therefore we can say it is more than logic that my school (not based in an english speaking country) would not teach this usage.

The only thing that is obvious is that we judge different considering you think that everyone has a perfect understanding of english and therefore cannot make mistakes or that simply because i did not heard of it before i`m new to the language. Either way i posted this earlier and i shall post it again:   If one judges that which he does not know, he only limits himself.   

I`m not here to start an negative discussion with you i`m only here to learn. There is no need to be negative towards each other.
