Many Muslims reject evolution and creationism and follows a belief of adamic descent, i.e. all humans come from Adam. therefore there are many religious muslim countries that teach in schools and believe that all human life came from Adam.



Oh
so thats why so many christians want to wipe them from the face of the earth

This thread is misleading because Gallop usually only poll about 1000 people and then you have to take into account the location of the poll, ie take the poll in Utah and then in The Bronx or even in Detroit ( just as an example ) and you will get totally differing views .

So the info provided by the OP is utterly useless in showing a national opinion.

In U.S., 46% Hold Creationist View of Human Origins


SO WHAT?

Creationism is just a viable theory as evolution. Creationism and evolution are just as viable theories as the theory that life on earth came from off this planet and we were 'seeded' here. It's all theory. One is as good as the other. Probably none will be proven for sure. Believing that God was involved in creation isn't a bad thing. Believing that the world is 6,000 years old and that God spot-zapped Adam and Eve into existence 6,000 years ago is a little silly (and has been proven false) .. but believing that God somehow created people isn't silly at all.

The thing is .. I dont understand why people think it has to be one or the other. Why do people think it can ONLY be creationism or it can ONLY be evolution or it can ONLY be 'seeding' from space? If there is a God .. and yes I'm sure there is ... why couldn't He use evolution as a form of creation? Why couldn't He use 'seeding' as a way to create people?

To the creationists ... Guys - we could have been created in soooo many ways. Believing evolution happened (which I don't) doesn't mean that God wasn't involved. Believing we were 'seeded' from space (which I think is probably what happened) doesn't mean that God wasn't involved. God can create however He wants and use whatever methods He wants. Right?

To those who deny God is real ... Guys - If you don't believe that there is a God then that's your business. But just as the creationists are closed minded to the fact that an omnipotent being could easily use evolution to create humans ... try not to be closed minded to the fact that there really could be an omnipotent being who sparked evolution or 'seeding' in order to create people.

We are small. The universe is big. There is a lot we don't know about. Anything is possible.

I stand for liberty and justice

PURE unadulterated BS
just like creationism

About 11 percent of young citizens of the U.S. couldn't even locate the U.S. on a map. The Pacific Ocean's location was a mystery to 29 percent; Japan, to 58 percent; France, to 65 percent; and the United Kingdom, to 69 percent

Gallop only poll 1000 people , so the information is useless at providing a national opinion.

It turns out that the callers who reach Gallup's switchboard may be just the tip of the iceberg. Survey researchers have actually conducted public opinion polls to find out how much confidence Americans have in polls -- and have discovered an interesting problem. People generally believe the results of polls, but they do not believe in the scientific principles on which polls are based.

jeez
can't support creationism with facts?

Hey ya' Danbones


As far as I'm concerned, the schools should stick to the facts. The FACTS are -

- people are on earth.
- we don't know for sure how we got here.
- there are many theories .. list the theories .. state that they are THEORIES.
- natural selection happens.

It doesn't hurt kids to know that there are many different theories. I mean .. they are out there and they'll run into them, right? Don't teach any of them as 'FACT' because we simply don't know. that's the truth .. right?

My words - all sides should be more open minded - are for the adults on this forum.
Creationists - be open to the fact that an omnipotent God could 'create' using any method He wants.
Evolutionists - be open to the fact that we are small and we really don't know much about anything at all.

Just seems like common sense to me.

Ever watched Springer or Maury? That'll tell you why the US is collapsing.
I don't know where they dig these people up, but there seems to be an unending supply.
And our tax money usually goes to support these idiots. YIKES!

Sure FF
IMHO, you can teach creationism in religion class
to say evolution hasn't been proven is wrong, or hasn't been proven, is NOT correct
as you may notice in my previous posts
re pesticide use and in the courtcases regarding education and creationism.

Fruitfly Study Shows How Evolution Wings It
ScienceDaily (Apr. 22, 2006) — In the frantic world of fruitfly courtship, the difference between attracting a mate and going home alone may depend on having the right wing spots. Now, Howard Hughes Medical Institute researchers have learned which elements of fly DNA make these spots come and go in different species. Their studies have also uncovered surprising new evidence supporting the idea that evolution is an incessant tinkerer when it comes to complex traits.

You idiot! Even if I told you why, you still wouldn't understand because the only thing you know about christians is that you want to kill us!
What could I possibly teach you about us if you believe GWB is a christian?
So what are you? Muslim? Luciferian? Why are you scared to be known?
