Evolution Beats Creationism in South Korea Text Book Battle
Evolution doesn't suffer from "lack of evidence". It's not a "theory in chaos". It's the threat it poses to the warm-fuzzy feelings of small
minded people that happens to contradict a dim witted interpretation of a fantasy book that people are brainwashed from childhood into believing
R.I.P. god of gaps.
The warm fuzzy feeling you talk about. I just don’t see that. What I see is plain old elitism and bigotry
They believe in gods that punish, exclude. Change from an angry vengeful god to a loving forgiving god, forgiving as long as you worship him blindly
and go to war in his name of course and that is common to all the flavours of gods.
No I believe many people such as our 'friend' adopt this rubbish because it makes them feel superior and tells them they are, that is why the
biggest insult to them is evolution shows we share a common ancestor with all primates and that is why they feel the outrage they show.
There are also many that have faith, can understand what evolution describes and how it adds to their belief not detracts.
Personally I have lived my whole life without the need for a god but also realise something kick started life on this planet but have accepted what
that something is will not be discovered in my brief spell here.
What I do know is that everything that changes, evolves and that means everything in this universe and probably beyond. To deny it is just madness.
Explain the diversity we see around us today without referring to evolution. 500 pages and no takers, I think that say's it all.
