The 'Exploding Giraffe' Award

Now get that image out of your head

Quote# 77556

My Creation science teacher once told the story of the Giraffe. He asked us, "how large the heart of a Giraffe is?"
We said, "most likely larger than that of a human."
He said, "Yes it is." That it takes a large heart to pump blood continuously up that long neck." He went on to say, "What happens to a Giraffe when it leans down to get a drink?"
We just stared at him.

If a Giraffe leans down to take a drink and the blood supply to the brain is not shut off the Giraffes head would explode or massively hemmorage. But what is amazing is that their is a valve placed in the system that closes off the blood supply when he leans down allowing the Giraffe to get a drink.

He then asked, "How many Giraffes heads exploded before evolution created the valve?" It was interesting.

At any rate, His point was we were all created by species in like form as we are today. We do not need to try and fit our Bile into science.

Damn Kid, you need to go to a real school...

I pity this person. She outright admits to having a "creation science" teacher who lies about science and teaches his students a false and already-debunked argument. And please, keep your bile out of science.

Creation science is mutually exclusive terminology, your teacher was a moron.
Do you retards actually believe giraffes started out with long necks? Protogiraffes all had shorter necks.
Why am I even trying to explain this, you people are too fucking stupid to understand it.

I love the part about Giraffes in Dawkin's "Greatest Show on Earth." After reading it (and reading more about giraffes since) I know that there's just no way anyone can take a good, long look at the internal physiology of the giraffe and go "Yep, that there is really intelligently designed."

Either giraffes were cobbled together by a really stupid designer, or it evolved gradually from a smaller creature with a shorter neck. Of course creationists refuse to believe either of those, so they once again just cover their eyes.

"We do not need to try and fit our Bile into science."

A member of Rapture Ready is unambiguously correct, for once in history.

You need to quit wasting time fooling around on the internet and get busy writing your term paper ("Our Friend, The Beaver").

Oh noez... asploding gyraf

At any rate, your teacher is a moron. And yes, i agree with you, keep your bile out of science.

I'm almost scared to ask what school this person goes to that has a "creation science" teacher, let alone one who uses false arguments in favor of creationism.

And exactly why couldn't a valve evolve in a circulatory system? Giraffe's heads don't have to explode before that happens.

11/20/2010 1:09:04 PM


As mikhen7 demonstrates, the best way to refute evolution is to demonstrate a complete ignorance of its claims. That's how I know I'm right, and everyone else is wrong, about biochemistry: I don't know anything about it at all!

11/20/2010 1:12:17 PM


I stopped reading at "Creation science teacher".

11/20/2010 1:28:01 PM


The word bile says enough.

Honestly where do you start?

Some people should not be teachers

11/20/2010 1:54:46 PM


The word bile says enough.

One other thing: You posted How many Giraffes heads exploded before evolution created the valve? Are you saying evolution is wrong? I thought so. So in that light I ask you this: Did God make a Boo-Boo and then corrected it later? So much for infallible.

11/20/2010 2:00:23 PM


Creation Science? Is that like Fantasy Math?

Erm, don't we have valves in our systems too, that cause the blood to not fall back down and back to the heart, but keep it pumping forward, towards our lungs?

their =/= there

The Giraffe didn't just wake up one morning with a 5 foot neck, ya know. It took hundreds of thousands of years.

Good thing you don't need to try and fit your Bible into science; it won't fit.
I accidentally wrote Bile instead of Bible...
On second thought/reading, I see HE/SHE accidentally wrote Bile instead of Bible. Good show!

11/20/2010 2:07:46 PM

Why would God create a creature that would need that in the first place? Why would God create a creature with an inconvienietly long neck to begin with?

11/20/2010 2:14:32 PM

If God was all powerful couldn't he just make the Giraffe not have to worry about that sort of thing? The giraffe wouldn't need the valve if God created it.

11/20/2010 2:17:25 PM

Giraffes' heads don't explode therefore God? Fur realz?

creation science spreads ignorance.

What was the movie in which certain people could focus their mental power so intensively that they could cause others' heads to explode? The talent could come in handy if you found yourself discussing science with mikhen.

11/20/2010 2:34:36 PM


Oh my fucking lack of a god! This kid, or possibly retarded adult, is so fucking stupid!
Please, spread this around the interwebs! The exploding giraffe head will become a meme more popular than the Double Rainbow!

11/20/2010 2:35:50 PM


Bile. LOL

11/20/2010 2:53:18 PM


Later in the topic this post comes from, another poster said this:

"2 Peter 3 contains a warning specific to this discussion. Look it up, and research the "nuclear strong force" while you're at it. That is how powerful God's spoken word holds each of your atomic nuclei together. Feel safer now, knowing how close He is?"

I just . . . There are no words, really.

11/20/2010 2:55:00 PM


"We do not need to try and fit our Bile into science."
Unintentionally hilarious.

11/20/2010 3:03:42 PM



Clearly the valves developed as the neck did, DOOFUS!

11/20/2010 3:11:40 PM


The next part of the post details how this creation science teacher debated a famous biologist on the subject of creation vs. evolution, and claims the debate ended with the biologist invoking the 5th Amendment, then leaving. Considering that the 5th Amendment is the right not to incriminate yourself, this says to me one of the following things:
-This guy wasn't actually a biologist, and didn't know what he was talking about.
-This guy was basically a prop for the creation science teacher, and furthermore didn't know what he was talking about.
-The creation science teacher wasn't actually debating, just making personal attacks, from which the biologist had to defend himself.
