Most people who believe in the theory of evolution inevitably have bouts of depression. It may be that the only way to overcome that is to question the false belief system.

Most people who believe in God inevitably have bouts of depression. It may be that the only way to overcome that is to question the false belief system.

Fixed.

Andy Shaftafly, who has such a weak belief in his chosen god, suffers from terminal verbal diarrhoea. Only a strong dose of disbelief will cure it.

Still in that river in Egypt about those communications - re. E-coli experiments - with Richard Lenski, Andy Schaftafly...?!

But then, I guess it's a way to forget about this...:



...and how things might have been if you'd stayed at Intel.

Even with Samsung's advanced NAND flash RAM in their standard 2.5" SATA, mSATA & M2 products right now, Intel's are still the industry standard SSD: solid & ultra-reliable.

Just like the results of a certain long-time: certainly repeatable, experiment which proves you wrong.

Must be as a result of you coming to the end of your NVRAM's read-write cycle life, Andy: all 4K of it.

"It may be that the only way to overcome that is to question the false belief system."

Andy needs to heed his own advice.

Most people accept the fact of evolution.
Many people have bouts of depression.
There's no correlation between the two, dolt.

LOL evolution leads to depression. Andy that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

I know I`d have a depression after pulling so much stuff outta my ass.

Suggesting that evolution is a belief system, is a false belief. Which certainly makes me question the belief system that sponsors that belief...

And, like, citation needed for any study that connects evolution to depression.
I'd really like to see if the millions of Christains who accept evolutionary theory suffer depression in any greater numbers than the creationists.

Don't be fatuous, Andy. That "depression" scientists sometimes have is entirely due to the ass-backwards ideas and brick-wall ignorance of creationists.

Andy Schlafly makes shit up to overcome his false belief system

Good old Andy Schlafy, perhaps the dumbest person on the face of the fucking earth

Most people get a at least a bit smarter with age. Andy just gets more and more stupid.

Well, I do get depressed by dealing with a howling pack of fucking imbeciles and the self-serving charlatans who egg them on in the name of Jeebus.

Thinking Allowed

Funny, because when I was immersed in Christianity, I was severely depressed because I always felt guilty for not "living up to the standards" of the Christian god. When I got out of it, and started thinking on my own is when I found peace.

So tell me Andy, what is better? Belief in a theory doesn't require something worshiping it, or a god that may or may not exist.

Most people who don't believe in the theory of evolution inevitably have a bout of stupid.
It can last a lifetime.

Astrophysists typically have bouts of depression. I mean, they've learned that the sun is going to go nova in a couple billion years.

People who believe in a spherical earth typically have bouts of depression. I mean, they've learned that the sun and stars don't revolve around them.

Paleontolgists and ecologists often have bouts of depression. I mean, they've learned that species can go extinct.

Students who have undergone sex ed are often depressed. They've learned that sexually transmitted diseases exist, and that they can become pregnant if they have unprotected sex.

Religious people inevitably have bounts of depression. They false believe that there is an all powerful, all seeing entity that created them to be its slaves for all eternity, and will return to destroy the Earth and kill billions that don't worship it. They also believe that it will send the majority of humanity to eternal torment in a fiery pit, and there's nothing that can stop it. It may be that the only way to overcome that is to question the false belief system.

Ah, yes, Andy Schlafly Making Crap Up for Jesus again.

Evolution doesn't lead to depression.

Imbeciles like Andy Shitfly lead to depression.

um...is there any sort of actual correlation here? because I think you're making shit up

Well I get depressed everytime I see creationists misunderstanding evolution and being proud of doing so. Alternatively you could say that your willfull and spitefull ignorance causes my depression, but that would need a level of self-reflection that you obviously lack Schlafly.

Even if, and that is a big if, your premise that acceptance of evolution leads to depression as true, that still doesn't mean that evolution is false. The universe has no obligation to make us happy

As a side note, the realization that I could theoretically trace my lineage back to the first replicating molecules is fascinating, not depressing
