Before writing anything in this post, I want to make clear that I am not an athiest, nor am I a hyper-religious person. I also have never studied
archaeology, palentology, or any of the other "ology's". So I pose my question without bias, just with the few facts that I have. And no, I
don't have off hand any sources to include.
This is just a question, O.K? I hope some others will respond if they like.
I notice that there are a great deal of postings in here dealing with both religion, and what the Bible says, etc... And also, I find quite a few
that deal with evolution.
Well, like I said, I don't know much about either, except for the fact that long ago in school, I have a vague memory of studying about
archaeologists(?) or maybe palentologists(?), and how they spend their lives searching for old bones, fossiles, and the like. I also know because
some of that stuff is in museums, that they have found concrete evidence of long ago homo-sapiens (I might be wrong on the exact term), but at least
what was referred to back when I was in school as "Neandertal People", and before them, more primitive types.
Anyway, I guess that what I am wondering about, is that it seems as if there is at least some concrete evidence that evolution is more than a
But, when it comes to the Bible - and I'm not disputing it, just questioning something. It seems as if just as many, probably more people read the
Bible and believe what it says, without question. But, where is it's bibliography? Where are it's sources? Maybe you guys know, but I don't even
know who the author is. (Really).
So, why is it so important for most of us here at ATS to know of the sources a poster is getting their information from, which is understandable, but
when it comes to the Bible, all that seems to go out the window.
