apocalypse's tag line, is Darwin's survival of the fittest. Like Hitler he makes the mistake that physical strenght is wat Darwin meant. Darwin actually meant that any race had the potential if they had the ability to have offspring, to have variability and inherentence.

There was never a mistake. You have to think about the phrase in the context in which it was used.

No u dont seem to understand. This phrase is used over and over agian, completely out of context. That, buddy, is a mistake.

So just because Darwin used the phrase survival of the fittest in a particular context no one else can use it in any other context?

He actually invented that phrase, and ppl have used it to justify (incorrectly) many actions that Darwin had not proved. I just thought it was intresting that Apocalypse also uses this line incorrectly. thats it. SO calm ur bitch ass down

Maybe those exact words weren't used but the meaning was always there. Bottom line, Darwin and Apocalypse don't use it in the same context and people are free to use the phrase "survival of the fittest" however they like.

The idea's been around forever. It makes perfect sense that Apocalypse would believe in it and even possibly misinterpret Darwin, as a scientific explanation for something that he had always felt.

alright fine, so ur saying I can interprut any line the way I want, no matter wat the original says it. Alright then I'll make this a little broader, lets see I think wen JFK said "ich bin ein berliner" it meant he was really working with Hitler all the time. Or how bout on the seventh day he rested" in the bible, means that u dont have to obey laws on sunday. Now sure u can believe wat u want, but by doing so u are acting illogical.

Um well the line was first published in Darwins book, and thats where it was made famous and popular, later used by Hitler. And there are many references between Hitler and apocalypse so yes I do

Semantics. I could just as easily say that when the quote was chosen for Apocalypse it was considered the correct interpretation. So was Apocalypse right then and wrong now? If the interpretation changes again, will you change your stance and decide that Apocalypse is then right instead of wrong?

wat. no u dont seem to understand. I am saying the original meaning, is done by the person who first says the statement. Now in this case that was darwin (actually his publisher) and wen he used it it was a catchphrase for his theory of evolution. Hitler later used it to justify WW2. He misintrepreted it. Apocalypse uses it in the same way. HTerefore through simple reasoning, Apocalypse uses the statement wrong. Its not up to Apocalypse to decide wat it means. Darwin proved what he meant in his book. He did not prove what Apocalypse is trying to push. the word misinterpret was made to show that not all interpretations are simply opinions and that they can be wrong

I understood you completely. But there are only so many words and only so many terms that can be used. So if I say, "I feel the need, the need for speed!" I have to mean exactly what they meant in Top Gun or I'm wrong? Could those words not be used for a different meaning, even with me knowing where the phrase came from? Couldn't I know exactly what they meant in the movie and yet be thinking to myself that their need for speed was entirely different from mine? So Apocalypse could even have the correct interpretation of what Darwin was trying to say and be thinking to himself, "Darwin's wrong. That phrase really means this..."

Ah but if u put that phrase into practise and openly admit that u got it from Top Gun and not ur own invention (without knowing TG) and then u use it to justify ur actions. But the thing is, unlike top gun, using Darwins theories, which have been proven, u can justify almost ANYTHING, saying it is necessary for science and such. U see I must repeat Darwin Proved his theory of evolution, and many ppl use it to back up different projects and other research. Now if u misinterpret it, u would be backing up these same experiments with nothing (no evidence since darwin didnt prove it) which would make it wrong.

I think he says only the strong survive, or whatever it is because he means that not only in a physical sense but a mental one as well. I would say mind body AND soul but I dont know if he has the latter of those 3 lol."

but that is still wat darwin does not mean he is a Eugenicist and a Social Darwinian, they have misinterpreted Darwin for centuries

1 if I thought he was real I would be insane. I didnt get why everyone jumped on my back wen I posted this, it was just i didnt nootice it, and I decided I may as well share it. 2) make that 0% Apocalypse is a social Darwinian, so unless the writers are tarded they knew wat they were doing, basing him off hitler especially, who was also a SD.

Not necessarily. I can make a statement that has not been researched scientifically and still be right. My thoughts do not have to be backed up by a scientific theory and though one theory is considered correct today, it can just as easily be disproved tomorrow. That happens all the time in science.

Also Perhaps I'm a disciple of Darwin and I believe in almost everything in his theory, but I personally think there are a few flaws in it. So Apocalypse can believe in a lot of what Darwin thinks and yet think Darwin is wrong. In Apocalypse's eyes only the strong do survive. There is variation in this due to circumstances outside anyone's control, but for the most part that's what he sees. So he may think that Darwin is incorrect and does not go far enough. You would need to disprove that the strongest or best adaptable species are the ones who better evolve than the others, to actually prove Apocalypse wrong. Simply varying from Darwin's theory does not make Apocalypse wrong.

Take it easy, but when you get back think of this. My theory is that you cant know. What do you believe in that you believe in every single tenet of it? If youre a Christian do you believe in every single thing in the Bible? If youre a Republican or Democrat, do you believe in every single move of those parties? If you love Green Lantern, do you agree with every single thing that has happened in the Green Lantern books and to all of the GL Corps? It's human nature to disagree with some things and the more complex a thing, the more likely someone is to disagree with some parts of it. So you cant just assume that you know all of Apoc's beliefs.

before apocalypse discovered he was a mutant he lived in the desert. the man who raised him thought him that "only the strong survive." when in the desert it doesn't matter how much physical strenght you have, if you don't know HOW to survive or you don't do what is needed to survive then you will die. apocalypse is not confusing physical strenght with the the ability to survive and do what is needed to survive(may have to do things like sacrifice others). you're confusing what what apocalypse means when he says that.

apcalypse does not care about offspring, if he feels that they are not fitt enough to survive he will them himself. only the fitt are meant to survive if you have great power, but you help poeple instead of helping yourself apocalypse will feel that you're weak. that is what apocalypse means

Its alright, theres one thing I can't stand when they draw Captain America saluting his hand is in the totally wrong position. Like when they make a full page drawing of him for me it totally kills the theme.

"Alright Crazy Spidey, I'll try to say this as plainly as possible. Darwin did not copyright the phrase. Apoc has never said anything about Charles Darwin. I'm not even sure you believe what you're saying."

No he didnt copy right it, he published it, with his book. Apocalypse believes in Eugenics, Eugenics was invented by Socail Darwinians, therefore Apocalypse is a social Darwinian. None of you have changed my mind in the slightest, most of u saying that misinterpretation is virtually impossible, but this thread is defenitely over.

"Eugenics was invented by Sir Francis Galton, before Darwin. It was also used by the Nazis. And please don't start that "thread is over" stuff. Threads are over when they are over, no one person can decide the time (save for the mighty three admins)."

And there's my point. Everyone likes to believe that, but how can we know? He was a f*cking brilliant manipulatist, how do we know he didn't just claim that so he could eliminate the "weak?"
