The ID Crowd needs to evolve some eyes...

so it can actually see the facts.

If you want to know where this comes from, look here (more the comments than the incredibly long-winded 17 page load of crap that Luskin spews).

The Theory of Evolution is only a theory, it says so in its title
WRONG! Theory in scientific terms is closer to a fact. Try again.

There are holes in the fossil record.
That may be, but there is also enough evidence in the fossil record to show that Evolution was not only likely, but a forgone conclusion.

If humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys around?
This one has got to be the dumbest argument I've ever heard. First, we didn't evolve from monkeys, or even "apes" as they're known today. We evolved from the same species that modern apes evolved from. That species no longer exists today. Seriously, use some brain power before arguing.

You can't be "insert specific faith here" and believe in Evolution.
You can, just so many of you morons choose not to. There are several religious figures who endorse evolution, including the Catholic church (as much of a shock as that may be).

If you are an atheist, you are pathetic and believe there is no purpose for you on this earth.
I am an atheist, and I don't find myself pathetic. I think I have as much purpose on this earth as any religious zealot, I'm just not as annoying. I actually find it pathetic that you must believe in an invisible man in the sky waiting on you to die to find any purpose for your life. But I really don't expect you to understand such things.

Those scientists who accept Evolutionary Theory are deceitfully blocking the facts and research for Intelligent Design.
Are you freakin kidding? Show some facts and research that actually lend credit to Intelligent Design, then we can actually have a conversation about it. Until then, go back to finding some facts and doing some research.

Evolution is false, because it doesn't actually show us how life began.
Well, you're right about one part. Evolution has never even attempted to explain how life began. Evolution is the theory about how life diversified. If you want how life began, go begin throwing stones at Abiogenesis.

The US is a Christian nation/founded by Christians.
You really should look into the history books. This country was not founded as a Christian nation, but more based of religious freedom. And many of our founders were not christian, and some were not even believers. Try again.

If ID is so wrong, why are the proponents of Evolution so scared of it?
We aren't scared of ID somehow being proven or some such nonsense as this question seems to imply. We are scared of the religious fundamentalists, of which there are far too many in the US, supplanting good science and Evolution with belief and ID. They've been trying for years already.

ID is not religious and is not creationism.
Perhaps the actual idea behind ID is not, but the reasons for it being pushed on people, and people buying into it, for the most part, are definitely based on religious reasons. If ID was not so compatible with religious beliefs, the whole idea of it would have died long ago, since it offers no evidence or testable theories. The Kitzmiller case also brought to light that an ID textbook had obviously just replaced the word "creationism" with "intelligent design". Explain that one away.

There are no transitional forms! Darwin even said this would falsify Evolution.
I'm not sure what you want as a "transitional form", but what was meant by this has been found, time and time again. Do some non-religious, non-ID, actual scientific research and you'll find this out for yourself.

If Evolution is real, show me the proof.
I'm not your butler. If you really want the proof and actually care, it's not that hard to find. Go visit a library. In today's world, you can find plenty of information on the internet, but you have to be careful of the sites you believe. The library is a much better source if you're not sure of the information you're looking for. Librarians are very helpful people.

I have a new idea. Keep your religious beliefs out of science, out of schools, out of MY (as in, someone who isn't yourself or part of your religious congregation) life, and definitely out of politics. I'm sure that, along with following scientific facts, is far too hard for the religious fundamentalists however.
