I see these types of threads going on ad infinitum.
I have to ask myself, what's the point? Neither side of this argument is swaying the other, and probably never will.
If I am missing something here please let me know, but before you do, both sides of the equation, please answer a question:
Creationists: There is no question in your collective minds that God was behind the creation of life, whether it be through intelligent design, or
literally the narrative of genesis. Would Jesus spend countless hours arguing with folks in a forum, or would he take a different approach?
Evolutionists: There is no question in your collective minds that evolution occurred and continues to occur in the natural world. With that said, why
would you spend countless hours arguing over this in an online forum with people who's beliefs are such polar opposites to your own that there is no
way you could influence them?
This seems pointless to me. I thoroughly respect both belief structures, however pages upon pages of mudslinging get us absolutely nowhere IMO. We
live in a world where, as people, we are very divided, and the divisions continue to grow, so I cannot see the benefit of arguing tooth and nail and
being openly disrespectful on a topic that is not going to see any type of amicable resolution. We are being controlled and manipulated in one form or
another daily, yet we are going to waste brain power fighting over creationism?
I don't know guys, I don't see the point. TPTB want to keep us divided.... "Divide and Conquer"... don't make their jobs any easier.
Seriously, I want to know why those already involved in evolution vs. creationism threads continue to be involved with them. That is the point of this
thread, please let's discuss this in a civilized manner, if it devolves into an angry poo fight, I will ask a mod to close this thread.
I'd like to think this thread will get some decent responses.... but if it dies in five minutes I understand, at least I said my piece.
