I remember a while ago, when I was making my usual rounds on viewing lectures and videos on physiology and philosophy, that I made the shocking discovery that some people believe that Evolution does not exist. I was baffled by the claims of these people, stating that the eye is to irreducibly complex to have been evolved, when we know exactly how it did become what it was, the stages of the evolution of the eye is supported by the organisms and fossils we have found. There were claims made that it was possible to have changed genus, but not family or kingdom, but despite my efforts at showing these people what evolution is, they refused to accept it, they marked it as not true. Long story short, do you think that evolution is true?

I just opened up the forum website and this was the first thread I saw. It's not my fault it was 20 seconds after you made the thread.

Anyway, I believe in evolution, but I also believe that whatever matter that came into existence in the first place (the singularity of the big bang) had to be made by a creator.

Another Evolution Vs. Creationism thread. How creative. This thread will turn into a massive hate debate in T-Minus.....5....4...3..2.1

I guess it would be appropriate to say...

But seriously, I find that people who dont believe in evolution make no effort to understand the theory. Not that they would believe it if they did understand it, but I'm just tired of having evolution bashed by people who have absolutely no grasp of it (then again, fundamentalists simply dont care).

I think a creature, half dinosaur, half Scott Baio took a big, steamy dump on a rock and that's how Santa was born.

As far as this wondeful argument always goes, i had the displeasure of reading a book written by a devout creationist who said that Isaac Newton believed in Allah (too bad he didn't cite his sources), he did bring up some great arguments there are actually plenty of breaks in the evolutionary chain and if things slowly evolve why isn't earth fraught with transitionary forms? I'm still an evolutionist because he hasn't shown me a fossil of Muhammed, we atleast have pictures of Jesus based on a 9th century Knight Templar! The entire book was spent arguing the failings of evolution, and never enforcing creationism. My favourite part is when he runs into a tirade about how people turn evolutionism into a religion founded on blind faith (i found it only slightly hypocritical :P). Anyway i thought i'd just throw that out.

Hell, it's just stupid to not believe in evolution to some extent.

I can, what is so hard to believe about people having different views than you.

That's pretty narrow-minded if you ask me.
#20
This is whether you find evolution to be correct or not, there are many reasons more then religion to say it is not, so it should not be part of the religion thread.

oh i was just joking about how many times we are saying the word believe.

yes of course people will always have different opinions so I usually keep my mouth shut in threads like this cause I know somebody is always gonna argue over something. And over the internet they are inclined even more to argue because they don't have to face the person and they can also take time to write a paragraph much like I just did so I will say this, I believe in evolution and I'm not changing my mind. - Unless god tells me to

Noone ever asked for you to change your mind, but I'm glad you are secure of yourself.

I'm not entirely certain about you fellas, but if someone's going to argue based on a book i'd take them seriously if they could spell one of the essential stories of the bible. And just throwing this out in the Life and Times of Jesus H. Christ and the 12 Hellions how come in episode 4 John's retelling he gets pierced with a lance, did Matthew, Mark and Luke look the wrong way because Mary Magdalene was strutting her stuff? Just I curious question I never got answered.

I was watching the daily show and John interviewed an astro physicist and one theory out there is that we could actually be "marshans" so to speak because mars was fertile much before earth and maybe an asteroid hit mars and flung debris our way (containing cells of life that live or are able to survive in extreme conditions and for very long amounts of time) and they landed here on earth and just sat here until earth became fertile and evolution took it's course.

now that's just a theory (as well as a run on sentence) and I'm not saying that's what happened obviously, cause we don't know how we got here.

But I think it's fun to explore all these different possibilities.

My mind is changing quite frequently, with new advances in science that are coming along so swiftly, we have such a great understanding of the world we live in compared to in the 1800's. People used to think the world was flat, people used to think that Horus was real, some people even believe in Santa Claus (he does not exist btw), the flying sphagetti monster, the boogey man, or God. We can take a person that has a tumor pressed against the back of their skull, and literally scrape it out of their body. Science is answering more and more questions, and more questions are being posed to try and stump it, so science advances still.

Stupidity is the opposite of intelligence, intelligence fuels science, therefore, science is infinite.

Then comes the question of, How did Mars get there.

While I do agree with you, your syllogism sucks balls it would've made more sense if you said, something like "Intelligence opens infinite possibilities, intelligence fuels science, therefore science is inherently infinite.

In what way did you prove science is infinite :S

Stupidity is infinite, science is the "cure" for stupidity, so science must be infinite as well.

I love how the same 30% never change their mind but consistently and completely get owned every time the discussion comes up.


Have fun denying the fact that is evolution.

You failed to mention all of that and science isn't a cure for stupidity science is the tool of those who wield it
