creationism is very silly and irrational. it sort of seems like a cartoon someone made up to keep children amused

Evolution is complex and has decades of observations and supporting evidence which educated people beleieve in

Being a self-proclaimed athiest your opinion is hardly unbiased. I tend to lean more towards evolution, but here's something to ponder. Where did that first spark of life come from? that very first single, living cell that in millions/billions of years would evolve into all the living creatures on earth, huh? You got an answer for that?

Firstly, let's get a few things straight. Evolution is only about the change of life over time, not about how it started.

The process that started it, is called abiogenesis. The mechanisms involved is not yet known, and researchers are looking for answers. After being able to create synthetic life, we should be able to crack the code.

Also, please note that Evolution does not mention a deity. One can be an atheist, and believe in evolution. One can be a Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, and believe in evolution. IT COULD VERY WELL BE THAT A DEITY STARTED LIFE ON EARTH, we don't know. But what we do know, is that since then, life evolved.

How do we know this? Firstly, small scale evolution has been observed in laboratories, over short periods of time. The fossil record shows an array of species, gradually developing over time. Radiometric dating shows the time intervals these species existed - life existed for more than a billion years. Since we know not of any genetic barrier between species, we can conclude that species would change significantly over long periods of time.

Creationism vs Evolution is not a debate. It is fact vs fiction - Evolution wins, hands down, every time, without fail.

Double Fine;

First of all the original poster stated that "creationism is silly and irrational"

In my response I stated that I lean more towards evolution. But I challenged him/her to explain the origin of life.

Let us try and help out this atheist victim.

The theories of evolution only work in a censored classroom. They are in fact state brainwashing since the time of the American & French revolutions e.g. world revolution. You see before this time was the holy roman empire.

The NWO ATHEIST brainwashing began with the French Revolution.

Critics will point out that even with the supposed bazzilions of years evolution is impossible, and has never been observed in even the shortest of generation bacteria we have observed for over 100 years.

Yet there have been no bazzillions of fantastic years often parroted as fact.

Spontaneous creation - Random chemical processes created the first living cell.
Supernatural creation - God or some other supernatural power created the first living cell.

And it doesn't really matter if aliens or meteorites brought the first living cell to earth, because the aliens would have come into existence through either spontaneous creation or supernatural creation at some point -- something had to create the first alien cells.

Most likely, it will be many years before research can completely answer any of the three questions mentioned here. Given that DNA was not discovered until the 1950s, the research on this complicated molecule is still in its infancy, and we have much to learn.

Err.

No.

Evolution has been observed from generation to generation.
Fossil record supports Evolution's account.
Radiometric dating support Evolution's account.
Evolution has practical applications in science.
Evolution makes accurate predictions

Creationism is a story written by simple minded people, for simple minded people
It has never added a single scientific fact to the scientific cannon.
It gives no explanations, and makes no prediction.

Creationism is neither a scientific theory, nor is it science

No evolutionists explains why evolution is a continuous process where new species are evolved quite often. Can any evolutionist agree to my idea, that new species evolved only when God said, let there be a new species evolved onto the earth and it was His way of creation?

Human history stops 5,000 yrs ago. Homo Sapiens have been around for roughly 100,000 yrs. Are Homo Sapiens underachievers?

If there is a god, I don't know.

But if there is, he created mankind through evolution.

"Human history stops 5,000 years ago"

Where on earth do you get to that claim?

After God created the Heavens and Earth and populated the land and seas with all kinds of critters he took a break. A week later he checked on His handywork and saw two snakes.

God: How ya doin snakes?

Snakes: Doin good, thanks for asking.

God: I see only two of you, I commamded that you go forth and multiply.

Snakes: We can't.

God: What do you mean you can't!?

Snakes: Because we're adders.

What "new" species are you referring to? Can you give me an example of "new" species that have evolved quite often?

i saw the Apes Genius in WTTW. one scientist have insinuated that apes should not be considered as mere primates, but should be treated alongside with humans. i agree with him. apes can solve problems just like humans.

and my point is, apes are evolving. they are becoming more humans.

New insects are discovered on a monthly basis, and here is the world's newest snake:

Yes. I'm sure this is the case, but "discovering" and "newly evolved" are quite different yes?

Some cases yes, some cases no.

But yes - we are still evolving, and we will find more species branching off

Written human history as far as we know. Could be 6,000 yrs ago.
