Why don't we all be friends and respect each others beliefs. We might disagree with many things, but that's life, not everyone is always going to agree with you.

Stop making religious threads, and start turning this into a dinosaur forum, and instead of arguing, let's just all give our opinions, because remember, even if most people agree with you, not everyone is going to agree with you.

I don't have that many problems with Christians, as long as they aren't extremely fanatical and they accept modern scientific theories, such as evolution.

BTW, I forgot to answer your question, the one you sent me on PM.

The fact that we have two arms and two legs is certainly not the only thing humans and apes have in common. Our circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and skeletal systems are all similar to those of apes.

And with the land pig evolving into a whale, what happened is that the pig, which originally lived solely on land, began living a more aquatic style, it slowly started to develop fins which gradually replaced its terrestrial limbs. Its lungs also developed to suit its needs when diving underwater. Eventually, you get a whale.

I know how you feel. When I first heard of the idea of evolution, I though it was nothing but incoherent drivel. But I learned more about the theory and it later made sense to me.

I don't care what you believe, but before you criticize that scientific theory then please try getting a better insight into it. Who knows? Maybe once you understand the concept you may start believing in it.

OK.

Please don't argue on what I'm saying but I would never believe in evolution, but perhaps evolution is right, but for certain I know we didn't evolve from apes.

So if they prove evolution, then you would believe it, correct?

Right now it has lots of evidence behind it but still hasn't been completely proven.

No, not really.

Also, evolution is PROVEN. There is a difference between a theory and a SCIENTIFIC theory.

A theory is when, say there's been a murder and someone has an idea about who killed the victim. It MIGHT be true because it's backed up by some evidence(A credible theory is, at least), but it's NOT conclusively proven and it could be completely wrong.

Here is a scientific theory:

a scientific theory is a tested and expanded hypothesis that explains many experiments and fits ideas together in a framework. If anyone finds a case where all or part of a scientific theory is false, then that theory is either changed or thrown out.

Although we can't witness evolution among most creatures, it's already happened in bacteria and such.

There's also the case of the peppered moth.

BY the way, you know what's also a theory? Gravity. Gravity's also a theory.

What I meant to say is that there are some things we don't understand about it, but yes, it has been proven.

Some people justify those kinds of things by saying "It was God's will". Now that's just freaking heterosexual!

Precisely. Science has also tested that caffeine can have bad effects on you. So please don't get addicted to it!

Even creationists can't deny the fact that evolution has been observed in various prokaryotic life forms. Admit it Carchar king.

The peppered moth is awesome!

And yet we don't see creationists trying to disprove gravity. I wonder why?

Now, who said god is fake.

It's scientifically proven that god exists. There's lots of evidence, but you people don't bother to look it up, the first thing you see with evidence backing it up you believe.

I have 1 reason at the moment of why most people are Christian, because it has the most evidence, than any other god which other religions are trying to scientifically prove but would never.

Instead of being lazy, we can all try looking up god and give it a try, and one look up won't hurt would it.

And did you know that the Big Bang theory has also been scientifically proven? Why don't you believe in it then?

Very good question, but I have 2answers for that

1. People only started believing the big bang when it was scientifically proven, but god was believed before he was even scientifically proven.

2. The big bang may have been created by god.

god may have been real. Let's respect eachother's beliefs. I have 3 answers for your answers.

1. God may have been real.

2. Before the big bang, nothing was knowable to science.

3. Before the big bang, space was just a bunch of stars and moons.
