The Bible teaches that the Universe, man and all animals were created by God. This is what Creationism is.
You are right on the last part though. Evolution is the only thing for which we have evidence.
Using evolution to inject the religion of Atheism in public Schools.
that what should be taught in public schools is the accepted scientific consensus
and not religiously biased theories. If
you don't like it, you can blame something that I believe is called the First Amendment and separation of church and state.
By the way, Atheism IS a religion and that is one court battle Atheists fought tooth and nail and LOST.
I'm sorry but atheism is not a religion.
A religion is a set of beliefs and practices generally organized around supernatural and moral claims, and often codified as prayer, ritual, and
Atheism doesn't defend any supernatural claims. Atheism doesn't have prayer, nor rituals, nor 'laws'.
I would like you to clarify your comment that that is one court battle atheists have lost
. Not sure exactly what you are referring to.
Now all we have to do is rename this country the United States of Christianity! Ha ha ha
We've talked a lot about intolerance in this thread, so I didn't think I would actually see someone being (religiously) intolerant here and even
finding it funny.
Biologists must constantly keep in mind what!!??
who says so?? HIM??
No, Darwin does. A lot of religious people and creationists cherry pick Darwin's and Dawkins' quotes - which probably come from the habit of cherry
picking passages of the Bible - to try and fit their beliefs, but it all comes down to this:
If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications,
my theory would absolutely break down. -- Darwin
And it hasn't since 1859. And his work only gets more credence the more we find about those fossil records you talked about, and the more we know
“It is as though, in our theory of how we came to exist, we are allowed to postulate a certain ration of luck.”
Luck?? ha ha ha
I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish with these quotes, since it's well known that Dawkins, as with Darwin, doesn't believe that chance
or luck had anything to do with it.
In fact, Evolution proves exactly the opposite. There is no chance or luck in evolution, only gradual and successive modifications and adaptations -
As for God, Absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of his absence
Again, this has been brought up numerous times: science does not have to disprove god's existence, since no one has proven that he does in the first
Evidence is something that clearly determines or demonstrates the truth of an assertion, requiring no amount of faith to do so. On the matter of
god's existence on the other hand, only faith comes into play.
