evolution: putting the "win" in Darwin since 3,500,000,000 B.C.


----
EDIT, September 2008:
DeviantArt's licensing and popularity have a positive impact:
I permit commercial uses of this image and wording, as long as they're not altered. I like this image and the philosophy behind it, so I don't mind if others make a profit while popularizing it.

I'm pleased to announce that this doodle is now available for sale at Zazzle [link] in a few forms (hats, keychains, stickers) not available through dA, and in the DeviantArt print shop, on stuff like mousepads, cretionists' foreheads (printed in reverse, so the slow-witted cretins can read them by looking in a mirror) and coffee mugs.

Surprisingly, at least two people have had this design TATTOOED on their bodies! I say "surprisingly", because they're not tattooing the southern part of their anatomy which they'd like Creationists to kiss. They've surprisingly tattooed their arms instead. Presumably their posteriors are already covered by large lip-shaped targets. Or hickies. Whatever. I digress.

You know BC stands for "Before Christ," right?

Did you know the Jesus fish was modeled after a vagina?
Now you know why I like it but not the religion~

I wish that the copy-left agreement, which allows anyone to use but not modify this design, was more flexible. In particular, I wish that I could allow for the font to be changed at the whim of the user.

UPDATE: This image has now appeared in Stern, a popular German magazine comparable to Life or Time magazines in America. This was the lead illustration for an article about the pro-religion and anti-religion logos being used worldwide in the fight between religion & science.

your Darwin fish may have eaten our Jesus fish, but your Darwin fish is now on display in the Vatican museum's paleontology department. sorry

Why are you sorry? The Vatican has been getting more liberal in its science for at least a decade. For example, I hear that the Vatican's astronomer believes there might be life on other planets... and that the alien life might have souls. It's a far cry from what they did to Galileo!

And what time period did Galileo live in?

LOL. I guess you're not aware that it wasn't until the late 1900s that the Vatican forgave and apologized-to Galileo for the things the church did to discredit and ostracize Galileo.

If there's anyone related to this discussion who's living in the past, it's not me; it's the church.
Religion and faith-based assumptions are in full retreat as the scientific method forces us to investigate and undermine those assumptions.
Modern religious thinkers are stuck in "ret-con" (retroactive continuity) mode, because their faith-based non-thinking does not lend itself to revealing facts.

Actually, the age of Earth is 4.54 billions of years old instead of 3.5 though , just saying. ;)

Yes, but life didn't appear on Earth until 3.5 beeeellion years ago. Earth was more lifeless than a mortuary for the first billion years. That's why I wrote 3.5 billion years rather than 4.5

It's amazing to see just how far some atheists have evolved into the biggest dicks this world has seen.

To my knowledge, no atheist has been as dickish as Jimmy Swaggart, the 700 channel, celibate Catholic priests dispensing sex advice, Jerry Falwell, Sun Myung Moon, the Kool-aid brigade, Branch Davidian, Mormons, the a##holes who put "in god we trust" on our money and "under god" in our Pledge, Ted Haggerd, and evolution-deniers.

Hypocritical power-mad "dicks" like that tiny sample of Christians reminds me why "cretin" comes from the French word for "Christian person".

Nah, we can forgive atheists who act militantly because atheists and agnostics are constantly getting bad-mouthed by religious idiots. If you'd been kicked around that much by a group of idiots, with no end in sight, you'd come out swinging your fists, too.

Agnostics and atheists stand on the moral and factual high ground, and we don't use a self-contradictory, non-factual 2000 year old book of fables to get our morals.

Wow i was wondering what you were going on about until i saw a post i wrote 2 years ago. This is an art appreciation site & i am in no way going to argue or dispute anyone. However, there are plenty of aholes on both sides of this debate/issue. We dont truly know anything about the other so, its quite silly to attack eachother. When i made that comment 2 years ago it was out of frustration of personal attacks by anti-theists. Anywho, I may not agree with your message, but the art is good and thats what this site i s about. Sorry for going on so long. Have a good one!

True, but afaik life didn't appear on earth until 3.5 beeellion years ago. Earth was duller than a nursing home hoe down for the first billion years.

Evolution discredits, not disproves (considering creationism was never proven) creationism and it does so quite definitively. The rest of science completely discredits the claims of all religions.

Evolution is a fact and it destroys creation myths.

Soon our understanding of the universe and beyond will allow us to definitively discount even deism as a valid concept.

In other words, there will be no place for god to hide when we prove it simply cannot exist. Impossible beings cannot exist.

Goodbye religion, it's been......well, it's sucked mostly, but hopefully you can just fuck off.
