Fallacies, so many:
1. In the scientific community there is no controversy in the theory, simply in some minor details, none of which come close to human evolution.
2. A scientific theory is never going to be called a "fact," because facts are evidence and theories are based on evidence, they are not evidence. Two very different aspects and concepts.
3. For something to be called a theory by scientists, there can be no guesswork.
1. Then why do they describe it as accepted by the majority of the scientific community?

2. Fact: In science, an observation that has been repeatedly confirmed and for all practical purposes is accepted as “true”.

2a. Theory: In science, a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that can incorporate facts.

3. Ya right. Here's an awesome guess:

"Life on Earth evolved from a universal common ancestor approximately 3.8 billion years ago."

Since you are incapable of comprehending simple language, I will explain it a little:
Knowing how we developed as a species tells us where the illnesses and genetic flaws come from, allowing use to isolate them, and eventually correct them.
If you need more clarification ask a real biologist.
Uh-huh...

And what's that got to do with being "happy and healthy" or "if you want to die of a preventable illness...remain with mythology"??

After all, if one is going to spend "countless hours" wondering how we came into existence, then one isn't spending their existence using their time to LIVE.
Besides that, it matters not so much HOW we got here or even WHY we are here; what matters MUCH more is what we do with our lives WHILE we are here.
Live in the moment, boy. Nothing wrong with spending time pondering something, nothing is all a rush.

Because mythology tells us that goat's blood splashed on a sick person will cure them, while science gives us actual cures.

You're right...there are billions who doubt the bible. As for the book of faith, well, there actually is evidence to back up many of the people and places spoken of in that book. Much of it, yes, is controversial, because it cannot be tested or proven. The thing about that book, though, is it is filled with information like no other book ever published. It,was written thousands of years ago and is comprised of books written by many authors over a very long span of time. You don't have to believe it...but to disregard it as fairy tale because you can't prove it....well, I think that's preposterous. It's an amazing piece of work and you limit yourself if you refuse to study it's contents, whether you believe or not.
There is NO evidence to back up the man=dust or rib=woman nonsense. That IS what we were discussing, wasn't it- the origin of human life?

Don't lecture me as to what is in the bible and don't talk down to me either.

I've READ the bible in its entirety. Some nice STORIES, some nice fairy tales, some nice parables.

Some really NOT nice stuff as well which shows the bible god to be angry, wrathful, jealous, vindictive, vengeful, mean and petty.

And gee- LOTS of fairy tales are amazing and do allow the imagination to take off on flights of fancy which is nice if one accepts that that is what fairy tales are- tales spun about that which is impossible.

So- I guess you're stumped, huh? I say that since you haven't explained just HOW dust could be turned into a man and just HOW a rib could be turned into a woman.

Yeah- I know- "magic" or "don't question god" or "just because" or any other NON-answers which I do understand since the bible is totally devoid of any logic- just like every other fairy tale.

<quoted text>Wow- you like making baseless assumptions, don't you?
1. What makes you assume ANYONE here spends countless hours in search of the hole that the hominid didn't jump out of?
2. What makes you assume that love, respect and forgiveness are principles only of the bible or that the bible is needed to teach love, respect, forgiveness.....things like that?
The bible is not the authority on love, respect or forgiveness and all the more given how much violence, hatred, war and killing is in the pages of the "good" book.
3. Not know what we're missing? How is that? Because we prefer to accept REALITY rather than to believe in fairy tales and fairy tales with no explanation and no logic?
So you're "saddened" because BILLIONS of people in this world do not believe in your god or your bible?
Do you spend "countless hours" feeling sorry for those BILLIONS of people?
And- still waiting for that explanation of how the dust=man and rib=woman could have happened.
I really don't expect a response from you since such nonsense can NOT be explained and must be taken on FAITH and sorry- but there is no EVIDENCE of either occurrence and no LOGICAL reason to believe what is utter bilge.
1. Lol...lets see...all the time, money, and research spent on evolution...that'd be a starting point. just my opinion though...I won't state that as fact. Y'all may be on to something.
2. I didn't assume, nor did I state that love, respect and forgiveness are principles only of the bible. I also did not say the bible was the authority on those. I stated that I teach those principles from the bible and see no harm in it. You are making the assumptions...I didn't. As for all the war, hatred, killing, etc...yes, it's there too. Had the writers left out the truth, the "good book" would serve no purpose here. Yet, it has and continues to do so.
3. You don't know what you're missing...and yes...I am saddened that billions don't believe.
4. I have no earthly clue how dust man and rib woman occurred. I have never pretended or claimed to know either. I believe based on faith...kinda the same faith you have in that Unknown, unseen common ancestor we have.

"Utter bilge"...well...that's an interesting way to put it.

Thank you! I applaud her. Nurses in a nursing home have a very difficult job and rarely get the praise they deserve!

Bible thumpers not only like to shove their beliefs down the throats of others, they do so with thinking THEY have it all figured out and that anyone who thinks differently is the "anti-Christ".
So do tell, TSI- just HOW did your god go about creating a man from DUST and then creating a woman from a RIB of the first man?
This ought to be good......

Well, since nothing in the scientific field, including the theory of evolution, suggest that it was by chance, meh. But circumstance is the very essence of why humanity is what it is today.
Perhaps we should agree to disagree on this one. I promise, I'll never budge. I will never accept that animals, the human body, even bacteria are the result of pure circumstance. Far too complex, far too amazing. Not once, in all the studies ever done has there been an instance where a living cell, much less a complex living cell, was produced from nothing, just by circumstance. if it had happened just once, I might be inclined to believe it. but it hasn't...ever.

Uhm..actually, no. We were discussing where the apes came from, but you didn't have an answer so you turned it around on me. But, according to you, you've read the bible, so there really should be no question about what I believe. I didn't lecture or talk down on you either. I was simply describing the beauty of the bible. I'm sorry if you perceived that as such. I will say this, if we could descend from an ape, why couldn't we descend from the dust or dirt? Various hydrocarbons associated with life are found in the soil. It's a valid question. As for how God did it, I haven't a clue nor have I ever suggested as much.

2. So is that.

3. There isn't any evidence that suggests all life came from one life.

Oh give me a break. Mythology USED to tell us that, just like science USED to tell us that the best way to cure a fever is to drain a little blood...

Don't give me any of that nonsense. You're implying that if you live your life trusting in science and nothing else you will be "happier and healthier". If that works for you great, but don't expect it to work great on everybody.

My mother-in-law died because of your precious science and it's precious medical "cures".
