btw your avatar if off the hook. i love it.
something isn't right with that.
it shouldn't take us 1 billion years to equal 1 billion people and then we shoot up to 7 billion the next 200 years.
so lets say man evolved in year 100 million.
and yet humans live millions of years ago.
All people today are classified as Homo sapiens. They first began to appear nearly 200,000 years ago in association with technologies not unlike those of the early Neandertals. It is now clear that they did not come after the Neandertals but were their contemporaries. However, it is likely that both modern humans and Neandertals descended from Homo heidelbergensis.

The thing is, I don't believe in any religion, yet I wouldn't call myself an atheist either.
Do I need help?

The thing is Genesis Chapter 1 actually makes more scientific sense than the Big Bang theory does. If you look at Genesis chapter 1.. scientifically that is.
Genesis chapter 2 is a different story, when Lord God formed Adam from the dust on the Ground. Yeah, that's when you have to start to believe in magic. Or should i say! Have faith in magic.

Hey fellow west oz bro.
Nice topic. I've often thought something along these lines. Most Athiests (although I don't actually consider myself one of them) do not posses degrees in biology or genetics necessary to really put creationist in their place. Yet, every Creationist has practically memorised the entire Bible and the all arguements of the few 'scientists' who actually tow the creationist line.
It puts everyone who is not a biologist or geneticist at a distinct disadvantage when arguing with them as they have spent a lifetime memorising all arguments in their favour. Essentially you have a laymen argueing against a person who is an 'expert' in their field, despite the fact that field is bunk.
Also, for JesusisTruth, all ur graphs and numbers are completely invalid. As has been pointed out already anatomically modern humans only evolved 200,000 years ago. Up until probably 3000 years ago they lived and died no differently to any other animal. The death rate more or less equalled the birthrate which kept the population of humans at a more or less even rate. It has only been since the industrial revolution that worldwide living standards improved that the population could begin to grow significantly. And ever since then, the rate of technological innovation has only increased exponentially, hence causing exponential growth in the human population as well. If its any consolation you seem like a nice person and not nearly as crazy as most creationistsedit on 28/6/2011 by 1littlewolf because: (no reason given)edit on 28/6/2011 by 1littlewolf because: (no reason given)
