Whatever you call it, there are two stories to how we got here.
1. GOD CREATED ALL THINGS, including evil, becouse without it -free will wouldn't be possible.
2. Millions of years rocks, animals, man.
Which noone has seen evolution. You can breed two animals, "pink one and a blue one " of THE SAME KIND, and get a variation of the animal. Plus humans do this "black man -white girl -you get a mixed human, but you can't breed a fish with a bird.
It does take faith, to believe in God, that's how He set it up.
Me, the old lead guitar player from korn,crissy moran (former pornstar), and many others have had an encounter with God, and "HE " changed our core beliefs.
As usual, you have created a caricature of what evolution actually says and pretend that you have shown it false. Sadly, all that you really do in such circumstances is demonstrate you ignorance of science.

The saddest part is that evolution and believe in a Deity are not mutually exclusive. The only thing that evolution proves is that a literal belief in the creation myths of Genesis are no longer realistic.

They do get their own forum, but there are only so many participants, and when you dilute people among multiple threads, the threads die off too easily.
This forum is like a swingers party. Instead of sex, we have "intellectual" exchanges. Single partners, multiple partners, even if you dont like your partner you are likely back for more after other experiences.
Hows that for unflattering imagery?
I figured that a captive audience was the main reason. Yeah, especially in this geographic area. Not too many people are interested in much. A swinger's party. Now you have brought the conversation down to my level. Hehehheh. Really, how do you know about swinger's parties? This will be interesting :)- Sometimes they are intellectual, other times you simply swap spit. An orgy of intellectuality Frijoles, Muq, etc. A partner sharing madness, I like it hehhehe. It was visually graphic, but brought the point across. Good comparisson Beans.

Fringe? You dont think an executive order surpassing congress and the bill of rights is unconsyitutional?
Obama is not interested in suspending your 2nd amendment rights. He is too dependent on the amount of taxes that he collects from gun sales. The hype around the second amendment and obama making an executive order is nothing more than a good marketing ploy to get people to buy more guns. The threat alone has had a serious impact on prices. People are paying top dollar for guns right now, so if you got a pile, make some money. Obama isn't taking anything. He makes way too much money off the taxes. They may use these unfortunate incidents as excuses to raise taxes on gun sales. Anything to raise more tax money.

I truly don't care how stupid you think I am, in which I will agree that I'm not very smart on evolution, but I know enough to know, that evolution as most know it, and is taught in school, is about long ago and far far away, this and that happened, and folks like you believe it. Yet as far fetched as that is, you refuse to believe God created all things. He even created man (which creates all that is seen) nothing has ever been seen evolving. Not one monkey has turned into a man.

Evolution has not showed the creation story to be false at all.
Maybe you would like to explain where we all started and how we became who we are?

We have a soul
We are physical -spirit -soul.

People want to build their own god, and many have gave into the evolution theory, and tried to make the bible "fit " what it says.

Even when I was lost and thought God was a myth, I still never bought the millions or billions of years story.

It is kinda amazing what has took place in just the last 100 years or so.
It must have took billions of years, before we kicked in?

The smart scientist were concerned about the moon landing in the 60's.
the had fiquered maybe 6 feet of moon dust, after the fiquered how old the moon was. This is why He took such a "LEAP " off the ladder. Turns out, there was only a couple inches of dust.
Kinda like a moon that was only a few thousand years old.

Yet, when people tell you this, you will find a way to explain it away, in your evolutionary puzzle.

It's no wonder soo many people act like animals, since they're being taught that they are one.

1. To the best of my knowledge, no evolutionary scientist has ever said that people evolved from rocks. If you have citations supporting that statement, now would be a good time to provide them.

Kind of correct.

Geology and Earth Science and Paleoecology (and probably Genetics) have showed that the (details of) creation story is false.

Evolution doesnt really get directly into the details of the creation story, rather, it proposes another mechanism altogether, with evidence to support it.

Evolution is an example of a theory, not a scientific discipline. You are proposing a straw argument.

Focus on the message and NOT the person. Ask yourself these questions. Are the things said TRUE? Are the things said FALSE? Then you decide whether or not you want to embrace that which is FALSE or TRUE.

Nope. Not all of us are here because they are on a religious crusade. In fact, you can usually figure out quickly who isnt, we tend to be the rational ones.

Furthermore, the reason people keep coming back is more related to a desire to see themselves time and time again in print, than to care what the others really say, IMO

Can you focus on THAT message?

A straw man argument, for sure. And you are correct, the two are not mutually exclusive. I don't understand why the fundies like to paint themselves into a corner when there's no need to.
