Since all the threads regarding the ToE and Creationism ended up with Creationists simply running away, does that mean that you all accept it now?

If not, let me know what your problems are with it, and I will do my best to help you understand.

I would love to think that the silence is confirmation that the Theory of Evolution is understood, at least its concept and wealth of evidence/data, even if not believed by everyone here but, sadly, I wouldn't be willing to bet on it.

I hope I'm wrong.

Don't worry, there's ALWAYS some idiot willing to trot out the "water canopy", "antedeluvian dinosaurs living with Adam", "hydro-plating" or some other "sure-fire" creation pseudo-science "proofs" to support a literal bible interpretation!!

Sadly, the deeply rooted prevalence of mythology, urban legend and pseudo-science passing as "proofs" for bible literalists requires constant vigilance and willingness to engage in science based debate!!

Christian authors are STILL making money out of the faithful by writing books based on theories discredited decades ago!! Fear and superstition are POWERFUL things!!

I still believe in the six 24 hour day of creation, the same 24 hour day that we have now. And that the earth is about 6000 years old.

That help anyone ?

Can I ask why you think so?
Are you interested in the truth, no matter what it is? If the Creation story in Genesis is not literal, and the Theory of Evolution is correct, would you like to know?

I don't think I know, I know without a shadow of doubt that my faith in God is correct. You can argue all day long, it will do no good.
You are a believer in the religion called The Evolution Church founded by the atheist Charles Darwin.
It's like you living in the days of Samson and asking him if he thinks he is the strongest man on earth, and his reply would be, I don't think, I know, because my strength comes from God All Mighty !!!

No, I don't belong to any church, and I am no beliver. And your attempt to pair science and atheism falls to the ground. More than one third of Christians accept the Theory of Evolution, you don't have to throw out your faith in God just because you accept sound science.

You are acting like the people who think the earth is flat for religious reasons. Would they have to throw out their God if they accept that the earth is round?

I am not wanting to argue, I am wanting to help. So many are blinded by a religious bias, which clouds their judgment and prevents them from seeing the obvious.

If you accept evolution then you are already a member of the church and a believer, whether you want to acknowledge or not. Sceience has it's place, but it stops where true faith in God starts.

Humans, throughout history, have held the same "absolute beliefs" about all gods that have come before, as well.

Look at the monuments and sacrifices that have been made to the gods of the Greeks, Aztecs, Incas, Vikings, Taoist, Mayans, Hindus, Shintoist, Mongols, Romans, Muslims and the list goes on and on.

The inability to recognize this fact shows a basic lack of perspective that is now historically obvious.

No such thing exists, stop making up lies.

Prove that he would say that.

Prove that a man who's power resided in his hair even existed.

Why are there no 'super' humans now?

Prove this, please.

Why can't science and faith coincide? Where does your book make that commandment?

Or are YOU just drawing a line in the sand because YOU can't make YOUR view of reality fit with facts?

Why would god have given humans brains and conscience if we weren't supposed to use it? Why do feel you can imply that another human's desire to understand and explain the world with FACTS is going against god??

Why does every fundamentalist christian resist the challenge to their beliefs by claiming the opposing party is 'against god' or 'science stops where faith starts'?

I say science is with god and YOU are against god.

No, you are dead wrong. Accepting science is nothing like believing in dogma. The difference is in the evidence, where I require evidence while the religious don't.

Your attempt to make me something I'm not is dishonest and seems quite desperate.

I'm not going to elaborate. You can't see the forest for the trees. It takes faith to believe that God created the earth in six literal days, and rested the seventh. Ask God for it. He will supply.

God could have created the heavens and the earth in a mere nanosecond, but that would be hard for the majority of Christians to really understand, to me it is simple.

I know it takes faith to believe, but why believe something for which there is no evidence?

And you don't want to elaborate? I will feel free to assume that it's because you have no arguments.

Hi MA,

I understand, in your view, science has its place. But when does believing in science have to stop where faith in God starts, or visa-versa.

What you're saying is that, to have "true" faith in God, one must give up believing in science.... that it's one or the other.

* If one believes in science AND in God... then, by your definition, their faith in God must not be "true".
Can you show me from the Bible where this condition about faith is stated? Thanks
