Well, the first example he uses by quoting an experiment from 1953 has been proven wrong. And I'm still not exactly sure how what we posted supports
the bible? The bible uses Genesis, and we know for a fact that's not what happened...man wasn't just created in its current form as the bible
yes the bible uses Genesis... and Genesis says that organisms will bring forth after their kind...
and if you are wondering what a 'kind' is... it is those that can bring forth...
like a golden retriever and a mastiff, or a horse and a zebra... those are examples of the same 'kind'
species is different, i understand that. you can have different species of finches.. but they are all still finches and they probably all have a
common ancestor that was nothing but a finch...
Genesis says that they will bring forth after their kind and that is all we observe. solid evidence from Genesis on that statement is it not?
you claim that man wasnt formed from the dust of the ground like Genesis says... explain how you know that for sure... because as far as i know we are
the only ones who actually know how to use our brains to create, invent, organize all that. thats how our civilization got here today because of how
God built us. not because of how chance brought us along... i would imagine there being tons more creatures being able communicate on such an
organized level as we do... with written communication, oral communications etc. why are we the only 'animal' that is ashamed of being naked in
front of everyone else? uhm, well Genesis points that out in the first few chapters. Evolution doesnt answer why we are the only ones ashamed to be
There are lots of things Genesis can answer if you just read and compare to scientific principles and what you observe through science. it really isnt
you keep saying 'the evidence is sooo great' but i still have yet to see evidence that is contrary to what the bible teaches that hasnt been proven
wrong or a hoax or a straight up lie... all i have seen and heard is examples of what i already believe in and that is your version of macro
evolution... which is actually the creationists definition of micro evolution... speciation but limited.
a dog will always produce a dog-like offspring every single time... it doenst change what kind of animal it is... and if it generations branch off so
far that some 'species' are no longer inter-fertile... thats in support of the Creation, not evolution. I agree that it happens but that process
will not turn bacteria into every living thing we see today.
i really think that the belief that this process will do that is a very long rabbit trail that will never end.
and i do admit, it takes faith the believe in the God the bible. and to believe in the parts that require belief. but when scientific evidence
(knowledge gained by testing, observing, demonstrating, hypothesizing, etc) speaks on its own, it is very interesting the knowledge you gain, the
information you gain, the information you find in what you are observing (information already existing in what you find... wow) is overwhelming
