"they" being evolutionists.


The article actually has to be read in its entirety to understand that.  But additionally it is worth reading if one wants a better understanding of why supposed discoveries by evolutionists do not make the impact as expected.

Each year there are many headlines, books, technical articles, and videos about another supposed missing link—a supposed link between a land mammal and whale, a dinosaur and bird, an ape and human, and so forth. Usually, these are quite easy to refute by anatomical features.

For example, alleged missing links turn out to be anything but—for example, either ape, human, or a fake (e.g., Piltdown man) or dinosaur, bird, or a fake (e.g., Archaeoraptor).

Nevertheless, these alleged missing links rarely make creationists cringe. I think it frustrates some of the evolutionists because they think they have found some sort of knock-out evidence that they interpret as support for evolution. But creationists rarely bat an eye.

Well, I’m going to let you in on a secret as to why creationists rarely take notice of these alleged missing links. It is because the evolutionists are digging in the wrong place—just like the bad guys in Indiana Jones. When you don’t have the correct information, you can miss the mark significantly.

 When comparing the popular vote of Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton had the majority of votes.

Majority (Oxford) - the greater number

Many words have more than one meaning Tomas.  Ask an English teacher.

Again, Skw (you choose to ignore this for some reason), the below is from the link you provided.  Do you agree with it, or not?


US The number by which votes for one candidate are more than those for all other candidates together.

 No Tomas.  "the greater number" is not just a British definition.  It is in every English dictionary known to man.  There is nothing wrong with saying.  "when comparing Trump to Clinton, Clinton received the majority of the votes.

Mirriam Webster.  US dictionary.  Since 1929      : the greater quantity or share 

It says nothing whatsoever about only being valid in Britain.

It also means more than half, the political party with the greater number of votes in legislature and a few other differences....but....the greater number is a valid meaning....in any English speaking locale throughout the world.

You have been obsessing over this and making a complete fool of yourself Tomas. Lucky for you that you are too stupid to see what a fool you are.

 Yes Tomas, that is one definition of majority.  I have never disagreed with that.  I have stated that many times already.  I have never once argued that the definition I used was the only one.  I used the other one, something you cant seem to come to grips with.  I understand that some words have more than one meaning, you apparently do not accept that.

When comparing the votes of Hillary to Trump in 2016, Hillary had the majority (greater number) of votes.  That is a correct usage of the word.  I suggest you get over it and move on.

As always, you are mentally unwell.

As always #2....you have no response to any of the data I posed on the topic subject.

Read it again - that is THE definition of majority when used with US politics.

That is what it saying - when used with US politics, that is how the word is used.    Being a British dictionary, it wanted to make that clear, since that is not true of British politics (or of British English in general for that matter).

 There is no rule that says when using majority to discuss politics, it must be used in the plurality/majority sense.

When I say: 

Comparing the votes of Hillary and Trump, she had the majority of votes that gave her a plurality, even though she didn't win. 

 That statement is 100% correct.

You are an obsessed mentally ill moron.

Is this all to avoid responding to all the science I posted in here?  Rhetorical question.

So you alone seem to be confused on that.

So, when someone opens up the link  you provided, and see the below, what conclusions do you think they will come away with?

US The number by which votes for one candidate are more than those for all other candidates together.

 Tomas: You are wrong. Everyone on earth but you realizes the word has multiple meanings,one being the greater number. You can say it 1000 times and will still be wrong.

"Hillary Clinton had the majority of votes compared to Donald Trump, but won in a plurality" is not incorrect.

But you go right ahead and keep posting.

You just cant get over this can you?  All to avoid the science I posted about evolution.  Pathetic.

Interesting - so you are admitting you made a judgment without  the facts.

Well, regardless, happy to provide the link ONCE AGAIN.

Is there a link to God on the net? I'm going to let you know that you can believe in evolution and God, millions do it, although it means letting go of the Garden of Eden or Noah's ark and  nothing is older than a few thousand years or other nonsense passed down by man. It is not difficult to accept the Sermon on the Mount/Plains or the Beautitudes as it is also acceptable for those who follow the 12 steps, which should be a pattern for all, turn it over to a higher power what ever/whoever that may be, control what you can and when you can't let it go, make amends to your fellow man for wrong doing. Whatever gives you peace in life or makes you a decent person towards others no matter what you believe, weird to others or not, stick with it, it doesn't matter what others say as long as you are doing the right thing morally and have an acceptance of humanity who may not be just like you.


One can 'believe' that but BELIEF itself doesn't establish reality. Evolution has NOT been established as fact, although many wish it to be.

The FACT of the matter is that the Scientific community, encompassing 100% of the scientists that exist ,
including cross disciplines, have not yet declared evolution to be a fact.

Sorry, but the 2nd (your addition) is not found in your British English dictionary, only the first.
