Buddhism is Bullshit – Part I
This article assumes that the Theory of Evolution is true, and doesn’t try to prove it. Evolution happened, and that’s a fact. Anyone who says otherwise is either a dumb idiot who seems like a dumb idiot, or a dumb idiot who calls himself a postmodernist/science philosopher, or something like that. This second category of people, dumb idiots posing as intellectuals, might argue that you cannot really prove anything (except in maths), and everything is a matter of personal belief.
In maths, once you assume a certain set of axioms to be true, things are either true or false. Pythogarus Theorem will hold no matter how many right triangles you draw, provided that you believe in those Euclidean axioms, like two parallel lines never meet.
It’s true that you cannot prove evolution in the same way. But then the same is the case with the theory that the earth goes around the sun. A pedant would say that you cannot absolutely prove that earth goes around the sun. But we know that’s bull. Earth goes around the sun. That’s a fact. Evolution is just like that. It’s a fact.
Abrahamic religions such as Islam and Christianity believe that the earth is only few thousand years ago and dinosaurs walked with humans. That’s bull. Earth is much older. It’s in fact 4.5 billion years ago. Life began 3.5 billion years ago. There were 5 great extinctions. The last one happened 65 million years ago and it wiped out dinosaurs. 15 million years ago we were ground apes. 1 million years ago, there were Homo ergasters. They kind of looked like us. But if we travelled back in time and tried to interbreed with them, we’d fail since they belonged to a different species. Then there were Archaic Homo sapiens. After that, about 100,000 years ago, modern humans, Homo sapiens sapiens came into existence. About 30,000 years ago happened what is called the Great Leap Forward. This is when the Cromagnon Man started drawing stuff on their cave walls. 10,000 years ago happened the Agricultural Revolution, giving rise to civilisation.
So we see that the earth is much older than the Christians and Muslims thinks it is. But it’s not old enough for religions such as Buddhism that talk about reincarnation.
