The truth of the matter is that they very easily can coexist, but the fundamentalists seem to constantly have a bone to pick with it. I know many
Christians who accept evolution as fact without questioning their faith in the least. If there indeed is an intelligent creator, wouldn't something
like evolution strengthen your faith, rather than dispute it? I'd think it would make sense for a designer to set up a self replicating process,
rather than do each detail individually. The whole evolution vs creationism thing is nothing more than a religious fundamentalist movement that has
nothing to do with reality. The people who actually dispute evolution are a small minority of religious folk who cling to literal translations of a
bunch of stories that are thousands of years old and unverified, rather than what is tangible and has been discovered through science.
It's like the same way folks dispute the big bang theory. But if an all powerful intelligent designer was going to create a universe, how do you
think that process would go down? Big bang maybe? It's silly. I think people just need to focus more on what they have in common instead of the
BTW I've never heard of somebody who considers evolution to be true call themselves an evolutionist. That's not even a real word, since evolution is
a science not a belief system.
I would suggest to you the Ben Stein documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. It's free to watch on youtube www.youtube.com... (legally).
Apparently its a big foepaw to even suggest that creationism is in anyway an acceptable theory in the scientific community. It's worth checking
That movie was terrible and very misleading. You can't teach intelligent design in a science class as its not science.
There are no inbetween fossils because God just takes a look and says "Well that ain't gonna work" and wham wipes em out and wham brings in the next
model. I mean to say, how can you expect anyone or any 'God' to just imagine a creature, and its perfect right off the bat - ain't going to happen I
If only that were true, but there are tons of in between fossils and genetics also show the evolutionary changes. You'd have to think god
experimented first hand on this planet for 3 billion+ years. But if he did that, how did he have time to set up all the other stars galaxies, and
planets? Seems like a waste of time and effort when a smart guy would merely set the plan in motion and let it unravel by itself. Fun to speculate
about, I admit.
