    I find it very annoying when somebody on the forums is hypeing up his wisdom and is assuming that people need a special kind of brain to understand evolution as example and he/she has it and you don't. Evolution theory doesn't require some highend mathematics to be understood. Actually trying to disguise a simple knowledge is stupid thing to do - NO, my mind doesn't need some voodoo to really "Get" something. And people, stop telling people they don't know something to make yourself feel better.

    Who's said that you need a "special kind of brain"?
    On the other hand you have demonstrated, quite clearly, that you don't "get" evolution.

    If someone doesn't know something, they should do what you point out they are capable of--- Learn.
    Instead of whining and blaming others.

    Well there's nothing in evolution that people usually don't know about, because it's a very simple theory - so nope "you're wrong here and just proved this thread was needed.

    Except for you, apparently, given the errors you perpetrated in this thread's OP.

    And again: Who's said that you need a "special kind of brain"?

    Not sure what you are on about since I don't participate in threads that I don't at least have a hint of understanding in, but since when is math considered voodoo? I thought ideas like that went out when they stopped burning "witches".


    I would like to go on record to say that I am of at least average intelligence and my IQ is fairly decent (about 145) and I do not understand the intricacies if evolution. I have a grade school understanding of it. Survival of the fittest type thing. But the depths that evolution is discussed on this forum go way beyond the average laymen's knowledge of it and to assume that you can even remotely grasp it without some kind of dedicated study of it is insulting to those who have dedicated a lot of time to studying and understanding it.
