Here's an excellent debate on the BBC between various faiths, denominations and scientists.

The question is: Is it time for all religions to accept evolution. There are a couple of young earth creationinsts, too.

It's long, so save it for when you have some time.

Like a lazy Sunday before the superbowl.

Your name indeed!
You are a brainwashed clone that needs education. Find out the meaning of God, and you will know whether the almighty can be created.

Then if, metaphorically speaking, you wish to refer to nature as "God" then fair play to ya. However nature is only evidence of nature.
No. I am not referring to nature as God.

What originated "nature"?

You cannot say that "nature is only evidence of nature", for a thing will reflect the potential of the cause/source which generated it.

Hence nature would demonstrate the potential of the realities that caused nature.

Do you know that nature occurs naturally; without God or an agent?
What supernatural phenomena have they discovered that they can say nature is "natural/normal"?

With what do you compare nature with so that you know that nature is "natural" and has no need for God to cause and guide it?
The Dude wrote:
It's called common ancestry. "Goddidit" is not an explanation. It gives us a WHO, not a HOW. And does so without evidence. It doesn't actually explain anything.
You dont know that there is any common ancestry; evidence only suggests common ancestry.

Goddidit is an explanation.

What you neglect is that there are different levels of explanations; such that explaining HOW does not explain WHO.

And we do have evidence that there is a WHO; in the Character called Jesu(s).

It does explain a lot; you just dont have the heart to search for answers in it.

I MIGHT agree with you here, except for the fact the agent IS relevant when you SPECIFICALLY claim it exists. And you have.
Ok then.

So the agent is relevant.

Who's "we?" I am not a scientist, but they have collected a ton of evidence to support their theories, that's why they're theories and not hunches. Next time just say you don't have any evidence, because to believe in something without having evidence to support it is delusion, and you have that in spades thus far.

Right.

"...certain astronomical bodies are not where they should be...", so darkmatterdidit, right?

In times like these, your resentment of God is an insult to your own intelligence.

I know that God is a Genius, because He's sure causing you to make a fool of yourself.

In science circles it is no longer considered a hypothesis but a scientific theory.

It IS still possible that the theory is incorrect, but in science we go with what works best. And so far no-one has been able to provide a better alternative capable of doing the job better. One example has been tried called Modified Gravity, but it simply didn't work. So until a better theory comes along they stick with dark matter.
So as absurd as darkmatterdidit might be, you will work with it because you have no better theory?

I will stick with Goddidit, because I see no better theory.
