Creationism is a sign of both insanity and outsanity. Haha playing around with pre-fixes here but seriously I think those that argue against creationism are both ignorant and arrogant. Things cannot evolve by themselves without an outside force bringing about that "change".
I am not a big fan of any mainstream religion because they tend to beat around the bush without giving solid answers to burning questions, but when it comes to choosing between religion and science I will always choose religion.
When science stops hiding everything under the pretense of "national security" this and "national security" that and most importantly stop acting like god by doing dangerous experiments that could have terrible ramifications on our planet, THEN I might give science some credit.
There is no excuse for stupidity and sooner or later we will pay for our mistakes!
people who don't believe God created humans would rather believe that we are apes that evolved over millions of years even though it's odd that many animals on earth according to scientists have remained unchanged, like crocodiles, for hundreds of millions of years.
750 millions of years from now humans will look exactly the same way they are now. why? because it's programmed in our genetic code.
key word programmed. to say everything is a random event is like hitting a royal flush 800 million times in a row.

Education...proper valid education, allows for civilization.
Removal of verifiable evidence and being able to teach anything as a sound science is unimaginably destructive...one belief is -not- equal to another belief. You can believe that feeding a infant bleach daily will make its soul clean. The outcome of that should be obvious. I hope that one example should explain to you why science should immediately push out any ungrounded belief system, and indeed, be ridiculed fiercely to either pressure the person believing in giving bleach to kids is good to rethink their stance, or have their baby forcably removed.
I see religion (teaching people to stone to death other people whom sin, and to bring the end of the world) as equal to the baby and bleach issue...its not some passive "maybe there are aliens monitering earth" belief...it is a instruction book on how to be absolutely brutal and twisted to other humans that needs to be tossed into the fires of previous dangerous superstitions.

This is extreme ignorance.
"Apes" as he calls them are NOT our direct ancestors, rather, we share a common ancestor in them, they took a distinctly different evolutionary path than Homo sapiens.
I expect this kind of argument from a 12 year old to be honest. He believes that the Organgutan is suddenly going to evolve one day into a human... *sigh*edit on 6-12-2010 by Crutchley29 because: (no reason given)

Yes, all religion is insane. I need the facts, and I think it is silly for a grown man(or woman) to believe in an entity that has power over everything and knows everything. This sounds so primitive and I find it to be harmful to real progress. Progress that should be advancing human kind.

just like crocodiles look the same way now as they did 250 million years ago.
