I originally posted this in a similar thread, sorry for the cut n past but nobody seems to get that these two ideas CAN coexist and that evolution doesn't kill any ideas in the bible, or vice versa.

Have you ever seriously considered that couldn't evolution just be the answer to how and not the answer to why?

I don't see why most people on this forum who don't believe in a higher power have to attack those who do believe in one. It's like the crusades but instead of Muslims vs Catholics it's Atheists vs Everyone on ATS who ascribes to a religion... I'm not saying that one side is innocent while the other isn't, but I've noticed on here that most of the "attacking" is done by the atheists calling the people who believe in a God (and I'm paraphrasing here) "idiots who believe in a bunch of 'useless BS' and their beliefs are somehow going to set back human progress".

Even though certain advances in human knowledge only recently "discovered" by human kind such as; the optimal length v width ratio of a large sea-faring vessel (Genesis), or the idea of quarantining the sick (Exodus), and the fact that the earth is round (Job), just to name a few, these "advances" were described in the Bible & Torah thousands of years ago.

I won't argue the fact that a larger part of the Catholic church and Papacy have contorted the messages contained within the Bible to how they want people to see it (& to make themselves rich and get pedophiles off the hook). But just because that has happened doesn't mean the whole idea should be scrapped, but it also should not be thought of as a word for word, exact reason as to how we got here.

Like I said earlier: Maybe evolution is the 'How' and not the 'Why'. I mean do you really think a person living in 2000BC would really understand the theory of evolution or how the universe came to be as we understand it today? No, more than likely not. So they wrote an interesting story to tell people until human intellect was able to describe the birth of our universe, our planet, and our species.

Depends on how much you don't want to accept it. To most people it has been proven, but not to the point where it's undeniable. Your beliefs rely solely on faith, in other words blindly believing a book.


Belief in YHWH depends on how much you want to resist him. To his children it has been proven, to the point where it is undeniable. Your beliefs rely soley on faith, in other words believing the words of a man who couldn't prove evolution is true. It is conjecture. No man was ever there to witness it, therefore it is speculation. That is your faith. There is no more proof of evolution than there is of the urban legend a man had sex with a monkey and created HIV.

You cannot say there is no creator because you do not know everything in the universe. You are stating your own opinions as fact when the fact is, you will never have all the knowledge in the universe, you will die in not even a pitiful fraction of years in eternity.

When you want to see evidence of the truths of God, visit my thread in my signature about archeaology and the truths of the Holy Bible. I deal with archeaology, is that tangible enough for you or do you wish to continue to "believe" your faith in evolution? The funny thing is, ancient alien theorists are closer to the truth than you are.

This view is called pantheistic luciferian nature worship where veneration is taken away from the rightful creator and nature and ones own self is given glory as divine. The first lie in Eden, 'you will be like gods'

Ones own self does not have the power to overcome death I am afraid. We are not an 'I AM'.


Belive what you want. My views are based on my own experiances of the supernatural and the physical changes my body has gone thru and not on specific religous faith or human smallminded conditioning. When my mind thought some things in my mind I without knowing it turned on the third eye radio transmitter and got an answer in stereo back. I did not belive in any god until it was proven to me but I was seeking understanding. You might not have the same on sequance of thoughts in your mind to be able to do the same. Whatever way you are supposed to understand god in lie inside you but if you have not experianced "the Bliss" then you probably have not found what you are looking for.

I wish you luck in your seeking.
