I'm sick of Atheist and any anti-Religious, or anti-God movement who revolve all their arguments around evolution.
I don't know a single atheist who bases their arguments on Evolution and I, as an atheist, certainly do not. Evolution has to do with the source of
bio-diversity and has absolutely nothing to do with the existence of gods. Now it is true that Evolution works well in a system without gods, as gods
denote the supernatural and evolution is a purely natural process with no need for supernatural intervention in order to function.
No, those trying to link Evolution with Atheism are dishonest Creationists who think that Evolution and Theism are not compatible. This isn't true,
there are plenty of believers who accept Evolution and there are even a handful of atheists who reject Evolution.
Atheism, is, more often than not, based on skepticism. It is a default skepticism about the theistic claim that there is a God.
People seem to think because there are different versions of human beings, somehow it all came together by chance.
Do you honestly believe that is the reason? I'm pretty sure the reason we think human beings evolved is because we've found human ancestors in the
fossil record and we know that our genetics and behavior share striking similarities with forms of apes that are alive today. So because of our close
genetic, physical and behavioral similarities towards, say, Chimps, and because we've found evidence in the fossil record, we can determine that
human beings evolved. We also know, as you said, that there are different "versions" of human beings, that humans evolve. I'm gonna pull out my
favorite online article ever to illustrate evolution at work in us humans today:
Genes explain why Tibetans Thrive
The Tibetan people have evolved certain genes that help them thrive at altitudes that most people would find unbearable. This is evolution at work. If
the Tibetan people were to stay in isolation at high altitudes for a few hundred thousand more years they may well become a separate species.
you can also conclude that they came to existence without any creator
Wrong. There are no natural processes that could bring a computer into existence. Life, on the other hand, is a chemical process that can be explained
as a natural phenomenon. The main thing is that computers have NO method of reproducing themselves. Life reproduces itself, in fact that's its main
function, and when that reproduction takes place slight genetic changes occur from one generation to the next - these slight changes compound over the
course of thousands of generations - that's all evolution is.
GOD takes the idea of evolution as an insult to him.
Even if God is real Evolution would still be happening, it's been directly observed (Google Observed Speciation). So I think God, if he is real,
takes it as an insult that his genius (creating a world in which creatures can evolve on their own) is overlooked by people who would rather believe
he got a clump of dirt together and said some magic words.
