Evolution does not go against the Bible. The Bible was not a consideration in the formulation and support of the theory. It is just that the evidence of reality supports the theory of evolution and not the creation story in Genesis. You can still believe in God knowing that the Bible is largely allegorical.

Why is a mule sterile? Two species a donkey and a horse breed the mule and it is sterile, it can not reproduce. This proves Evolution will not work
Nope. It only proves that you are an ignorant douche claiming knowledge of something (in this case, evolution) while simultaneously showing you your complete lack of that claimed knowledge.

Why is being stupid so damned important folks like you?

Rejecting evidence based reality because it conflicts with what's written in a book of ancient tale does not make magically make that book of ancient tales anything more than a book of ancient tales

I can't, because that would violate evolution. So I'd like to thank you again for not bothering to learn the concept, and for continuing to move the goalposts every time without rebutting any of our posts.

Wrong. If donkeys and horses were different species then they could not reproduce. But the fact is they can. And they can produce more donkeys and more horses. That's why we still have them. The mule is the demonstration of evolution at work, because horses and donkeys are diverging genetically, and each of their lineages in the future will not be able to produce mule at all. In short, the mule is the evidence that evolution IS working.

Oh, and by the way - sometimes mules can have offspring.

Still waiting for you to apologise for your previous lies, and to refute my previous posts demonstrating evolution, and my posts which shredded yours, without you repeating fallacious arguments or moving onto a new one. AND we're still waiting for your scientific alternative that does a better job of explaining biodiversity.

Thanks in advance for not bothering to answer my questions.

Ok i can see now that theres no point in arguing on here as most of you act like a bunch of six year olds who arent willing to give up on a stupid point
Funny, we could say the same about fundies.

so let me ask you this why do you chose to believe in evolution wouldnt it be so much better to believe in christianity i mean atleast then you have a chance to live hapilly forever if you except God in your heart,
But this has only a 1 in 15,000 chance of being true. There's about 15,000 other Gods all proposed throughout human history, each one of them being just as likely as each other. So if you pick the wrong one there is a HIGH chance of you going to hell in somebody else's religion.

Fancy being zapped by Zeus up the backside for all eternity?

honestly that like the one thing you have to do to get to heaven where youll live eternally with a someone whos love is unending,God,
Can you provide any scientific evidence that your god exists?
Nick wrote:
instead of what you believe that we werent made for a purpose and that when we die theres nothing and that itll be like we never existed because if we dont have a purpose and we arent ment for a greater good then what really is the point to life except to die eventually
Life is what you make it. So don't waste it by spending your life worrying about what happens AFTER you die. Especially as you have no way of knowing your wizard even exists, never mind what it wants out of you in life.

sp why do you chose to believe it even if theres so many holes in the evolutionary theory
Because the "holes" are no-where NEAR as big as you think. If they were, you would have been able to point them out by now and we would not be able to refute you.

But as it happens, the reverse is true. No fundie on planet Earth has yet been able to falsify the theory of evolution. If they had, they'd be more famous than Darwin.

*Which* parts of the Bible have been proven factual?

"World-wide flood"?~ no evidence of it whatsoever

Since science has been around since BEFORE Obama then quite obviously he's not responsible for the worldwide conspiracy that you're unable to demonstrate.

The bible *IS* wrong on a number of points. Keep in mind it is a COLLECTION of writings compiled over many, many years. Just because something is incorrect, doesn't mean it's all incorrect.
If you are wrong about one thing, does it mean you are wrong about everything? Think about it.
How would one know if it is incorrect to whom has IT written?

Each book to a character and how we read it today may be different then what one has read it as then in some past?

Some of it to familiar and others to seek and if it were to living and claimed all in death then a new written to carry on?

Alright

Ok but if evolution is real that goes against all of genesis and if genesis is wrong then it ties into other parts of the bible and then the bible would be wrong so you simply cant have both evolution and christianity
Those that believe both often consider Genesis to be allegory rather than history.

Science isn't against the Bible, it doesn't support or refute the existence of God or any god. What it has done is show that there is no evidence to support certain stories in the Bible. This doesn't alter the Bible as a basis for the Christian religion or reduce its theological significance. The facts and findings of science only impact those that insist that the Bible be viewed as literal and ignore all the inconsistencies found therein.
Are you a church attending Christian yourself?
