If god exists and evolution exists then couldn't god have used evolution to arrive at mans current form?

I know that was short but it's a good thing to think about.

Yep damn right


And I guess this proves that Christians arent any exception (because some of them think they are)

Here is a couple of my favorites.............




“Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless they are married to them”

“If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being”

“God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve”


Thank you, Jerry Falwell certainly words to ponder.

Here's my favorite from Rev. Pat Robertson....



"Well, I totally concur." –Pat Robertson to Jerry Falwell following the Sept. 11 attacks, after Falwell said, "I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say: "You helped this happen."

and this one.....



6) "(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

i think this is one of the worst ones i've ever heard...

from the "Fundies Say the Darnedest Things" top 100:


I think im speaking for most of us here when I say I am tired of living in a country that promotes sin and a satanic lifestyle. I was not born a christian only to have some godless person try to instill their beliefs on me or my family. Something needs to change. If we are to win the war on terror then we need to get everyone on the right side. Why dont we see any Christification camps? Children should be taught the Truth of Christ at a young age so that they cannot grow up believing in satan...

I understand why Bush has been divinely inspired by the Lord Jesus Christ, because only he understands the perils that our country and Christian Citizens of the United States face on a daily basis. The inherit threat of the mohammedons must cease, and we must be able to live our lives without fear of being killed in the name of Satan(allah). I think we need to have Christification camps open up through the country, requiring mandatory attendance for people who chose to believe in false religions. This is a real threat we are facing and we need to take it very seriously...

Fear me, Evolutionists & Atheist alike, my Theology is your worst nightmare.

So what happens when you admit that evolution is real, and is the source of all the plant and animal species currently present here on this planet, including potentially people? What happens when you admit that certain portions of the Bible, specifically Old Testament things, are not always true or are of a vague, symbolic nature? What happens when you say Yeshua Moshiach, aka Jesus Christ, was not the literal, from-the-sperm Son of God, but rather his chosen "step-son" of sorts, being 100% human, receiving all power to heal and create miracles from the Holy Spirit in the moment? Jesus is not God, Jesus sits at the right hand of God; Jesus is God's Chief Executor. If The United States is God, the office of Presidency is Jesus. That is Arianism. God has no form in this realm, therefore he has to send an avatar of sorts, but that is not God incarnate any more than you or I am God incarnate; which we are to a very small degree, but that is a different discussion.

Evangelicals have got it wrong. Catholics have got it wrong. Presbyterians have got it wrong. _INSERT_CHURCH_HERE_ have got it wrong you see. The real, true Church is not made of bricks, but of thoughts and intentions. The New Jerusalem exists through rejoice of the faithful. The Great Deceiver, aka the Dragon, aka the Serpent, aka Satan, aka Lucifer's time is short; he is going to be destroyed in a relatively short time and Lucifer knows this. Once this happens, this entire web of deception spun around this entire World will be brought crashing down, and even the non-believers will be humbled and awed by things that they thought were impossible.

Indeed, they will question their own sanity, saying "Am I seeing this? Am I hallucinating? Am I on drugs?" and things of this nature .. it will literally blow their minds, it will seem inconceivable .. impossible .. and thats just it.. ultimately you are not supposed to know, and cannot ever know whether or not God exists, whether or not an afterlife exists, and these kinds of questions. If you were told yes, there is a God, and God showed God's self .. some how .. in a satisfactory manner, lol.. people would have no way of being deceived any more. They'd always turn down Satan's deceptions because they had seen God, the one, with their very own eyes! And who is able to stand before him?

As a Christian, I find these quotes quite un appropriate, and very denominational on non believers. Thats not how it should be. I myself don't believe in Evolution, but I don't look down on those who do because there is some evidence that does hold the theory up. In my personal opinion, when God created the earth, the universe, etc, he obviously created science and the laws of the universe. I believe that he left it up to us to discover them because he wants to see us flourish as a people, to become rich with knowledge, and personally, with all the great advances in science and discoveries, it only proves that there is a greater being that created all this because it works out perfectly (most of the time)

I think that God loves us so much that he wanted us to make it far and make discoveries on how he made things, natural laws, etc as long as we acknowledge he made things work out so nicely and not ourselves, extraterrestrials, etc. I mean, if you had children, you'd want them to make it far in life and stuff but still give you the credit for starting them off on the right foot and helping them along the way, right?

Well, if you dont believe in god, like myself and others then it is our belief that we, humans created and discovered things. I dont have a problem with your beliefs as long as you respect ours

I also disagree that we should give children push in the direction we follow. If my kids choose to pursue religion in theior lives, I wont stop them (as long as they dont try to convert me..lol), if they choose to be atheists, then that is fine to. We shouldnt credit ourselves with pushing them onto something, but we sgould credit ourselves with allowing them to have a their own choice

I'm not saying that many christians are not extremists but when your stating so many things about evolution you may want to get the key fact right; humans supposably evolved from chimps not monkeys. I'm an evolutionist by the way.

Isn't this thread about Extreme quotes by Christians?



''We are completely void of anything to do with God. Teachers can't touch a child - even to hug a crying child. Young boys are on Ritalin and a lot of the problem is because we have a female-dominated educational system which tries to make little boys act like little girls.''

--William "Bill" Murray, addressing the "God and Country II" rally, speaking about the need for prayer & Bible recitations in school

I get these quotes from the interweb....

I like this one...


"The long-term goal of Christians in politics should be to gain exclusive control over the franchise. Those who refuse to submit publicly to the eternal sanctions of God by submitting to His Church's public marks of the covenant--baptism and holy communion--must be denied citizenship, just as they were in ancient Israel."
-- Gary North - Political Polytheism: The Myth of Pluralism, Tyler, TX: Institute for Christian Economics

This one's the best....


"I don't know that atheists should be considered citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God."
--President George Bush, August 27, 1988

Makes me glad to be Australian that one......it seems to me that to be president of the Unites States, one must be involved in religion one way or another.

Is this true?

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Zealots... probably. Idiots... definitely!

If there were just some way to keep these fools from using the same label I do, I'd feel a lot more like laughing.

Sorry, I don't really want to take away from the origin of this thread (stating outragous Christian Quotes) but I feel like expanding on what you said a little bit if thats okay.

No, see, the problem with most Christians, as you can tell by these quotes that are being represented, have absolutely no respect (and love) for the non-believers. They think that they are higher than them and because of that, they have the right to look down upon them. This makes it easy to understand why so many people stray away from Christianity after being part of it, or never even coming close because of the religious judgemental stereotype that it represents Christianity as a whole. This is wrong. As a believer, regardless as to if an acquaintance is "rightful" in my eyes, being judged by my beliefs based on the bible or Jesus or God, or if he/she is a sinner, it doesn't matter because we are all built on the same principals and made equal in God's eyes. This is hard to understand if you are a non believer, because, well, you don't believe, but even harder if you've been rejected by the church.

I read the quote by Senior George Bush and I must say I was extremely surprised and disgusted. To say such a thing about Atheists is completely sinful and un-justified. The bible says that God loves the Atheist as much as he loves the Satanist, Jew, Christian, Islamic and any other person and culture you can name. It doesn't matter who you are, what matters is that God loves you/them. He created us equal in his image, but most Christians have a problem with this. They think that they are "Holier than thou" kinda deal. There is no excuse.

Regarding differences between me and non believers, I must learn to accept them and consider them if I expect the other to do the same. To block out every bit of information that doesn't pass the "Filter of Judgement" is completely arrogant, and not right. I completely respect those who believe in other religions and beliefs, but that doesn't mean I have to believe in them in the same way they have to believe in mine. But like I said, most Christians don't understand this. They think its about them, and not the crowd that we were designed to reach.

Its this sad fact that makes Christianity seem oppressive and mean. If people who don't understand Christianity and have been hurt by it, or don't want it, would just take the time to find out what a real relationship with God is like, they would find it is much different than what is often publicized by the Church itself.

Until Christians let go of their egos and comfy bubble of so called justified life, there will always be hurt. I myself, accept others for what ever they are, whether homosexual, heterosexual, atheist, believer of evolution, or creation, what ever, you name it, but I am taught to love them in the same way Jesus does. Thats what we need to do.

If: tl; dr

Christianity is about love, but this is often not displayed, and these quotes prove this. I know that my relationship with God is real, but I can't prove it to you unless you decide to try it for yourself. God is love, but there is no denying that Christianity is mean and nasty on the outside all to often. I hope that one day this will change. Thanks for reading.
