Terry Pratchett introduced me to the idea of a "crab bucket". Fill a bucket with crabs, if one crab tries to leave, another crab is sure to grab him with a pincer and prevent him. As the crabs in the bucket are due for slaughter, this guarantees no crab survives because of the thoughtless selfishness of the other crabs.
I am wondering if an analogy can be made. Let me see...
Fill a bucket with humans, if one human tries to leave, another human is sure to infuritate him with meaningless TARD and prevent him doing something productive. As the humans in the bucket rely on each other to be able to do anything productive, this guarantees no human can progress because of the thoughtless selfishness of the other humans.
Nah, couldn't be right could it?
Well, if you examine crabs a little more closer (while still remaining out of reach), the "crab bucket" analogy fails, if only because a crab is capable of, and somewhat willing to shed a limb when the circumstance arises. (In fact, ask my mother about any of the times I've tried to recapture escaping crabs from their bucket at the local supermarket)
On the other hand, what with humans being mostly incapable of, and largely unwilling to shed limbs (overly gory horror films notwithstanding), and given humans' often deliberately stupid behavior is often exacerbated in a crowd and or tight spaces, the "crab bucket" analogy fits humans to a tee.
Sorry but we are discussing the vagueries of TARD and thus creationists. You have brought an argument which involves FACTS. Are you quite stark, raving mad?
I can only refer the honourable gentleman to this counter argument:
I refute you THUS!
