Everything we say or do is most likely predicated on things we've seen or heard. Originality is on a continuous scale and some thoughts are more or less original than others.<quoted text>
Evidence is useless without thought. Someone else did the work for you on evolution. My point was, you are using someone else's previous thoughts to even mention evolution. Without it, you'd just do your everyday thing oblivious that there was such a thing. I say this because I know you aren't a scientist, or actively engaged in developing or testing scientific theories. But evolution wasn't the only thing I mentioned. You keep typing responses, so you are utilizing someone else's 26 letter alphabet to call me names that you didn't coin.
My point still stands that you did try to trap someone with not being able to think for themselves because they use someone else's thoughts, when you do the same.
And the funny thing is, I don't even care. I just wanted to point out that you have flaws too. It's obvious that it gets under your skin that you walked into one. Calling me stupid or a liar doesn't change that I was right. You might be able to fool a few readers, but everyone else sees it now too. Haha
But that has nothing to do with their veracity. We have a brain that can reason. We use that tool to evaluate what we hear and learn.
Most people who put in the time and effort to learn about evolution are compelled by the evidence and their ability to reason through it. Most people who reject evolution are, in fact, not doing that.
The very idea that belief in religion is equal in rational basis to acceptance of science is insulting to intelligence. It is not even the same kind of thought process. These are apples and oranges. You did not come to God by using reason, you came to God by emotion and a willingness to suspend your skepticism in favor of the succor of faith.
