    At 59, Didier Raoult is the most productive and influential microbiologist in France, leading a team of 200 scientists and students at the University of Aix-Marseille. He has discovered or co-discovered dozens of new bacteria, and in 2003, he stunned colleagues with a virus of record size, dubbed Mimivirus, the first member of a family that sheds an intriguing new light on the evolution of viruses and the tree of life. Controversial and outspoken, Raoult last year published a popular science book that flat-out declares that Darwin's theory of evolution is wrong. And he was temporarily banned from publishing in a dozen leading microbiology journals in 2006. Scientists at Raoult's lab say they wouldn't want to work anywhere else. Yet Raoult is also known for his enmities and his disdain for those who disagree with him.-Sciencemag.org

    he's not saying evolution didn't happen, he's doubting darwin's model for it - i.e. with mutation and natural selection as the primary driving force. he's still an evolutionist, one thing you should realize is that there are arguments in the scientific community about the correct model for exactly how evolution happens. his view is in the minority, and darwin's model is the more prominent one.

    Even in the unlikelihood that evolution is wrong, do you realize how ridiculous it is to believe that the christian god is the answer to the universe?

    The flaws of darwin's theories have been known for a long time,
    Shit, using his exact model now would be like trying to play an nes game in a roomful of wii players

    Appeal to authority, sensationalized garbage. Darwin's theory has been built on for a very long time now. This is moot and stupid.

    Or, attempt a rebuttal. If you can't, that's fine, we all know you have limited mental capacity. If you can't, however, shut the fuck up. Just because you don't like when I point out some stupid shit you say, doesn't mean you're not saying stupid shit. Defend your stupidity or GTFO my goddamn face.
