Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

I used to love the In-Fisherman magazine and the show till it went away and now I like Angler's Edge. After it was sold I imagine he wanted to keep a show to write off fishing expenses. At his age he'll drive four hours and hop on a lake, something I no longer care to do. And then last week he went over the edge and decided to announce evolution wasn't a real thing. Hard to believe anyone who spent a life time on the water could say something like that. I should call him and say "C'mon man".

I sometimes wonder how so many angling shows stay in business when most don't ever really reveal any big secrets or tips that can't be found on forums, youtube, and facebook anymore now. That and there just so filled with ads, and usually whoever is on the show is just pushing products half the time. Don't get me wrong I enjoy a good fishing show, but I'm amazed so many stay around. Most the time now if I need a fishing show fix there are a million youtube videos to get it from now. Evolution some people think it's such a touchy subject that goes against their religious beliefs, I personally don't think evolution can be refuted, but many take it as an attack against their religious beliefs. Which isn't the case at least not to me, I don't see how evolution can be denied, there is proof all over the world, it doesn't mean it refutes anyone's religious beliefs.

I still watch the In-Fisherman show on TV once a week. Lindner's are no longer on it. Maybe they are very old segments being replayed. I don't know but I have never seen any of them before.

It is probably one of the very few fishing programs that hold any of my interest. I buzz by the ice fishing and the commercials. That's the value of DVRing everything, I guess.

I do like Al Lindner's shows. They aren't too bad compared to some of the shows that are out there. Just curious I don't want to start any kind of argument but are ya'll referring to Macro Evolution where we evolved from apes or Micro Evolution where changes occur from one generation to another?

I guess both, macro occurs from decades of small micro changes. You can see it with lots of different species of animals and how so many similar species has adapted to their specific environments. I don't think it undermines religion necessarily, hard to prove that a higher power didn't have role in how things were initially created. All depends on what you believe and perceive, but the evidence of evolution is apparent across the globe in all kinds of species.

I think you said it about as well as it can be said.

BTW, I've been waiting for my 15' tinny to evolve into a 18' windshield boat for two years but nothing has happened. In this case the powers that be is Mrs Ldubs. :LOL2: :LOL2:

I think that's the problem most people get into when they have arguments about evolution. They don't specifically site which issue they have with evolution. They just blanket all evolution as bad or doesn't exist. You can't deny evolution. Its real. The visible changes can be clearly observed on species throughout generations and I agree I don't think that undermines religion. I just think that is part of it. I disagree specifically with the part that humans evolved from apes. As a Christian, I believe God created humans. I think people who share my viewpoint need to be careful when talking about evolution that they understand the difference. I'm not well educated in the realm of evolution so I try not to stick my neck out and make some statement that I can't back up. I am curious to see what comments Al made to see if he was referring to all forms of evolution or just that part specifically.

My only comment about Evolution is...in TN. we live an hour from Dayton TN. Two years ago, the local playhouse ran a re-inactment of the Scopes Monkey Trial.

It was held in the very courtroom where the original trial was held. We sat in the same seats as the original attendees.

Great entertainment, well presented.

Qualifier; I'm an agnostic, therefore, I don't really believe in an all-powerful being the way the rest of the planet does. However, I also recognize that every society needs something to believe in, so I don't attempt to "push" my beliefs on others, like a true atheist might.

My take on evolution and religion. When Galileo discovered that the earth was not the center of the universe, he was ridiculed by the church, and thus the masses, until he was able to convince them that it was true, and he was able to back it up with observable scientific proof. The same thoughts or beliefs apply to evolution, but here's the "missing link", so to speak. God made the heavens and earth, so Galileo's evidence couldn't be refuted, and the same applies to evolution. God is responsible for it all. Science and religion do have a place, right beside each other in society. It can't be refuted, and can't be altered.
Where real danger lies is when man attempts to "evolve" things through experimentation with science.
Just a non-believer's take on it.

Amen,brother.edit: don't believe anything you read on the internet,either.i do enjoy the fly fishing programs because you can always pick up tips,bass fishing? not so much.cast, retrieve ,repeat.not much of a learning curve when you compare it to casting flies,especially in still water.

I watch fishing shows for the sole purpose of watching a fishing show. I can deal with commercials but what I don’t like is the Sunday school lesson at the end of the show. I guess if I get my own show I can do what I want with the last 3 minutes.
