I'm not arguing for or against evolution, I'm just saying that this guy doesn't understand evolution at all.



But it belongs in that thread.


And there's no need to argue for it. We already know it's happening.

To the CvE thread with it!

Ahhhh. I hate these things. Nobody can explain how the world came to be. It's way too strange a concept for anyone to "understand". You can't fight about it either, because you'll just end up offending someone.

Personally I don't give two ****s if it offends someones religion, when what I'm saying is scientifically evident.


As for the world (in the sense of life) scientists use Abiogenesis, or similar concepts, to explain how life began on Earth. My thing is evolution, though, so I don't know much about Abiogenesis.

You HAVE to be kidding me, right?

I would also like to state that evolution is real. You wouldn't have a lot of drugs without it...but i believe that is for another thread...

It is, but seeing as this thread is still open, we'll discuss it here


And if ANYONE says that it's "just a theory"

prepare to have a definition thrown at you.

doesn't everyone just think the world was created in a certain way? Be it religion or the Big Bang Theory or whatever, No one really knows for sure.

Evolution on the other hand, doesn't care how the world was created, its just a natural process that is here, whether or not god made it.

There's a difference in thinking based on faith and thinking based on evidence and explanations.


We know more on how the big bang happened than we do on God creating it, so we go with the best explanation. That explanation being the big bang (or in case of life, Abiogenesis/clay theory/what have you)

The Big Bang Theory is pretty much ''for sure'' it fits all the observations.

"Life or Non-life, apart from gods devine intervention, is a fairy tale. But depsite that obvious truth..."



I dont think the evolution has ever said that god doesnt exist for sure. Just downplays the creation story. Many people who believe in evolution believe it is part of Gods plan, to experiment with life and gradually improve it by trial and error, and adaptation.

Darwin himself believed in God even when he pioneered the evollution theory, but he didnt publish his theory or tell many people about it until 4 years after his findings so he was no hated. and because of his faith.

Sadly no


People ARE that dumb. The banana one is funnier, though, IMO.


Someone said that to me once, they said "The banana fits perfectly in the human hand, that means God must have created us."

And I followed by saying "Well it also fits in the gorillas hand perfectly, we must have evolved from them."


I know my response was stupid (I was being sarcastic), but the person actually thought about it

The reason why evolution doesn't mention god is because why should it? In science you try to make as few assumptions as possible. For some reason that's perfectly ok when it comes to gravity, medicine, e.t.c. but when it comes to evolution apparently every evolutionists is persecuting christians because god isn't being mentioned.

Rofl I dont deserve the compliment I had a huge inconsiderate rant-- excuse me-- ESSAY, typed out on that post....then I stared at the screen for a while..calmed myself, controlled my emotions, and typed out that well mannered considerate post you see before you

Trust me, everything you are thinking right now on this topic..im thinking too (and just as passionately). I just kinda think..some people NEED to believe in this stuff for personal reasons or just to give themselves a reason to live etc...so I just leave it be and try to be sensitive about it. Its kinda like you wouldnt go bullying little kids about how santa clause isnt real ..ya just dont care ya know?

Well I think any belief in supernatural is unreasonable, and that living off of faith is even more unreasonable, and actually dangerous. I see no reason why people's faith should be treated as "unarguable" and "sensitive." That belongs in the religion thread, however, and I won't get into it here.
