50 reasons (NOT) to believe in god

#26 If man has evolved from an animal, why doesn't he behave like an animal? Yet man is civilised?

This woman needs to study more anthropology. She's only looking at the differences and not looking at all the similarities that far out-number the differences... kinda like a racist, actually. We do behave like animals in any number of ways, and we study the behaviour of animals to understand more about ourselves, animals in general and primates in particular. Civilization just a more complex social structure coupled with technology. And civilization is far more fragile than we suppose. Take away the civilization and what do you get?

Apes with cell phones they can't use?.... but wait we have that now....sorry, still bitter about almost being run off the road today.

Anywho, as always, wonderful rebuttal.

Thanks. It's amazing how many of these have actually been tried on me before, as though they are deeply profound insights into the nature of god.
