Dan, or thetheologianscafe, made a post here calling evolution pseudo-science because evolution research supposedly doesn’t save lives, and said that he had cancer and his doctor was a “real” scientist because she was doing something important. My response:
“Nearly half of known forms of cancer evolve proteins which make them resistant to cancer treatments. If your oncologist didn’t know about evolution you would likely be dead you ignorant shithead.”
Evolution science, in addition to answering many of the biggest mysteries of our existence, is used to do everything from treat cancer to predicting the mutations of super-viruses to finding countless areas for research for gene therapies to treat disease, not to even mention using evolutionary algorithms to make adaptive computer programs which can design stronger bridges and safer airplanes, and countless other applications.
But even if it didn’t do all of that (and more), pure science is only something to scoff at if one resents truth and discovery. In which case please do darwin proud and get a vasectomy. The gene pool has enough dead weight as it is.
