Creationists went into freakout mode over evolution-themed Google Doodle

In celebration of the 41st anniversary of the discovery of Lucy the Australopithecus, Tuesday’s Google Doodle featuring the extinct hominid, has the Creationist community up in arms.

In celebration of the 41st anniversary of the discovery of Lucy the Australopithecus, Tuesday’s Google Doodle featuring the extinct hominid, has the Creationist community up in arms.

The 1974 discovery of Lucy’s fossilized hominid skeleton in Ethiopia significantly changed our understanding of human ancestry. Lucy seemed to have walked upright, though she was far less intelligent than humans today (creationists included). Forty-seven bones, representing approximately 40% of her skeleton were uncovered, bringing to light new information about how humans evolved throughout history.

Proponents of Creationism (a belief system that interprets literally the Bible’s chronology as to the origins of the universe and biology) did not hesitate to express their outrage as a result of Tuesday’s Doodle.

One writes, “Google supports the THEORY of evolution. If evolution were true we wouldn’t have monkeys around anymore, idiots!”

Another writes, “Google, I’m not a monkey!”

    I would like for you to tell me that these 10 or so people are all of the morons out there, but sadly I know there are many more.

    I was taught to respect the beliefs of others and to never push my own down their throats. Google did nothing wrong, so stop whining, get a life and do good deeds not run down others who do not believe as you do!

    Obviously, there are people who understand NOTHING about science. To claim “Evolution is JUST a THEORY” does not understand the definition of the term “Scientific Theory” – which is an explanation of the FACTS, NOT a “guess”.

    If these folks are so upset with Google for posting something representing facts proven beyond a doubt, I suggest they go to Yahoo or some other page, instead of showing their ignorance of the facts.

    Lets add some facts to the question here.
    1 – The Bible was written by unknown human authors, not by God or Jesus.
    2 – The Bible contains literally thousands of inconsistencies and outright errors internally.
    3 – We have not one single scrap of originally written text – everything we have ever found is a copy of a copy of a copy …. not the gospels, not Paul’s letters – NOTHING.
    4 – Multiple copies of “scriptural” text are different and inconsistent. Over 5,400 texts have been found and (except for small fragments) no two are exactly alike for the same portions of scripture. So much for “inerrancy.”
    Some of these radical fundamentalists need to learn to think for themselves and quit believing their “inerrant” preachers.

    Evolution? Old Earth/universe? Bah! Everyone knows god sat around for a few billion years twiddling his almighty thumbs, bored to tears, “badoopadoopadoop”, then “Oh, hell’s bells, I think I’ll create a universe” and POOF!, there it was. Then, “Ya know boys and girls…oh, wait, there are no boys and girls….” POOF! again (well, ok, POOF!/spit and dust), and there’s Adam. Then one day, “Adam, dammit, I said quit jerkin’ the gherkin, and stay away from the sheep”! Hmm, homeboy needs a woman so he’ll quit doing those disgusting things with his wanker. I’ll just snatch one his ribs….POINK! Oh, dammit, now she’s walking over to that tree I put smack in the middle of paradise and talking to that snake I created, and she’s, she’s…oh hell no, she didn’t . Dammit you two! Despite the fact I created you both, despite the fact I created the snake (and that damn tree), despite the fact I set you up to fail, you failed. Why? Now get the hell out of my paradise, go forth and do what I told you not to do, but designed you to do in the first place.

    Let’s see what we have here. People getting butthurt because Google is using an evolution-themed logo, and they make their comments on a device from a company whose CEO/co-counder is atheist, with software from a company whose CEO is atheist, some even through a social media website whose CEO/founder is atheist. I’ll go a step further to say the very basis of the computer programs in use today were invented by, guess what, an atheist.

    I wonder what they would do or say if they actually knew how much of a connection ‘godless heathens’ have on their daily lives?

    You will find definitely a lot of details like that to take into consideration. Which is a terrific point to bring up. I provide the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly you can find questions like the one you bring up where essentially the most important factor will likely be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if ideal practices have emerged around points like that, but I’m positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls really feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
