What part of not caring do you not understand?  You still have no understanding of evolutionary theory, and almost everything you've said on the subject is laughable ... and when things you say are challenged, you start blathering about what an important person you are.

You're a buffoon.

"I consider atheism to be a religion."

Gong!

@ Joe

Yup

Sorry I don't have time to read your response Joseph.  I'm sure that you are correct.

Okay, then we'll add willful ignorance to the list.

You don't have time to read the equivalent of one page of a magazine article?  Bullshit.

You've gone well beyond being a pumped-up blowhard trying to assert authority that you don't possess.  I think you're a total waste of time, now.

Actually, he sounds more like a Libertarian than a Communist, John.  Similar insanity at the opposite end of the spectrum.

I write all my own stuff.  Don't have to quote anyone else. Have my own thoughts and invent something new just about every day.  I don't compete with anyone and don't take myself very seriously.

We're providing links in an apparently vain attempt to explain to you where you're going wrong.  There's no reason to explain it from scratch, when someone else has already done a good job of it.

You're not assembling rational arguments, and you're talking about things of which you obviously have insufficient knowledge.  If you followed the links and read a bit, you might learn things and become less ignorant.  Give it a try.

Seriously, go look up the book suggestions I've made.  Most of them should be available at any decent public library.

 

I'm here because I thought that you needed a serious case of Atypical bi-polar which is a much better disorder.

Thanks, I'm already bi-polar.  I'm good.

I just asked.  Don't have to get all bent out of shape. Anyone who thinks that he is a free thinker should have some comment other than."you're off topic".  Maybe I was thinking about the 'humankind' part of the heading and how they have been sold a bill of goods that has made them rather numb to what they are really being controlled by.

It's not that you're off topic.  It's that you're introducing completely irrelevant information, trying to pump yourself up in some sort of Argument from Authority fallacy.  I don't give a damn what you've done in the field of economics.  It has nothing to do with Evolution and gives no credibility to anything you say on the subject.

Add to that the fact that you're saying things that are silly to anyone who understands the theory and ... well, you're going to get mocked just a bit.

How can I prove that the money GOD does not exist and is not worshiped by his followers?  Is his religion not the one with the army of accountants and the Church of Banks with the rituals and sacrifices.

Wasn't aware that I had so many unanswered questions in me?

Questions are one thing.  You're not asking questions in an honest pursuit of knowledge.  You're asking loaded questions, pushing an agenda.  There's a slight difference.

 

We either evolved from something lower or something higher.  Which is it?

That's a complete misunderstanding of the Theory of Evolution.  This sort of thing is one of the areas in which you're going completely wrong.  Evolution is not a hierarchy.  It does not support eugenics or genocide.

Seriously, go and read a few primers or something.  'The Greatest Show on Earth', by Richard Dawkins, is a good choice for that.  You need to get down the basics before discussing it in a forum such as this.  Most of us have read well beyond that level, on the subject, I think.
