Is having a soul somehow mutually exclusive from evolution?
I'm done L1ght, you can post your crap all you want from now on. I'll just lurk and laugh.
No it's not Randy, they are not mutually exclusive in any way. If there is no soul to experience the environment around it, no change takes place. There is only a dead body.
There must be a driving force behind evolution don't you think? The soul is that driving force, it is what dictates what needs change through experience. If an animal migrates to a hotter climate out of necessity (like food shortage) then that animal's soul will experience warmer weather.
After a few generations of experiencing that warmer climate the soul's experience dictates that the hair it has must go, and each generation after loses a little more hair to compensate for that warmer weather, maybe to the point where it loses all or most of its hair.
Our ancestors migrated to Africa at some point, after many generations of that warmer climate, the souls of our ancestors dictated that they needed less hair than when they were in a cooler climate.
The soul dictates evolution just as your digestive system digests, it's an involuntary process performed because of food being present in the stomach and/or intestines, or in this case the loss of hair or changing of anatomy to compensate for a different environment.
The soul regulates your heartbeat in the same way it dictates evolution: involuntarily and apart from the thoughts of the observer.
My views are that the universe and existence itself is "God", we are the universe experiencing itself, Jesus is an anthropomorphization of what we all are at a base level, the image of God (image of the universe).
Our image reveals the universe around us and is the light of the world ("Jesus"), the visible universe is the feminine or Mother aspect of ourselves, our invisible Spirit is the masculine aspect or Father, and the image ("Jesus") or Son is where the two meet in the middle, a.k.a. a physical body having a immaterial soul that experiences all that life has to offer.
You haven't read the thread I assume. This thread was a response to another thread asking for proof and evidence that evolution is real. There is no proof for evolution just as there is no proof for creationism. That was the entire point of the OP, to show that creationism is just as valid proof-wise as evolution.
Fossil records pointing to evolution is the same as the bible pointing to creationism, neither can be considered proof.
And yes, the post you quoted was my opinion.
I myself am glad there is a being far more enlightened than you...

This thread was a sort of social experiment in response to another thread btw. The question was meant to be rhetorical to show that asking for proof of anything pertaining to our origins is an act of futility.
Buddha said that talking about our origins was fruitless, I agree with him. He was much more "enlightened" than I, as was Jesus. I have no issue in admitting that.
Your attempted jab didn't go unnoticed though.

No les, I can't.
Yes. Spirituality, in my opinion, is stupid.
