If you are incapable of accepting anothers opinion without resorting to infantile name calling you have no place here or on the internet as a whole.
So you'd prefer I assume a position of false respect? You'd make of me a dishonest man? His opinion does not deserve respect or acceptance. It is infantile and ridiculous. Not all beliefs or opinions deserve equal consideration. It is idiotic
to make uninformed, scientifically ignorant declarations about the impossibility of that which we have discovered as the culmination of centuries of human ingenuity and intellectual exertion.

At that point there would have been no natural instinct because we wouldn't have developed it yet. So, I find it hard to believe we would have survived. Darwinism has lots of holes and there's also that things called the "missing link". Yeah, because it's still missing. And monkeys are still having babies today. Why aren't they giving birth to evolving humans? People don't believe in a world flood but there's oceanic fossils found on mountain tops. These are reasons that I think we have to part of a grand design...a bigger scheme.
This is not a respectable thing to say. It deserves no respect, and I daresay it deserves our scorn. If he doesn't wish to be considered ignorant, he should alleviate his ignorance through education. Elsewise he should not make uninformed proclamations about scientific concepts about which he knows not even the vaguest
Do you honestly believe it's better to be tolerant
of ignorance than to correct it? Let's not dissemble, here. You wish me to give unearned respect to a statement like "monkeys are still having babies today. Why aren't they giving birth to evolving humans?" This is sheer insanity.
I have no respect for people who are disdainful of facts, and neither should you.
