The problem is with your analogy that it doesn't come close to the problems I am talking about. There is a culture on this site of using deceptive techniques to make some things look legitimate and other things look foolish.. This is a good example.
That actually wasn't much of an analogy. It was just the truth.

Your conclusion is incorrect. Aside from it being something that annoys me, there are no similarities between the two.
Then why did you post it? Seems kind of irrelevant here.
What is not similar?

This leaves me to wonder if there is another ultimate answer that we haven't even begun to perceive yet.
Creationism is one in an INFINITE number of possibilities of which we only know what is equal to a grain of sand.
It would be statistically impossible at present for us to even have the chance to know what that ultimate answer is.

Which is exactly why religions which depend on ignorance hate science, because slowly but surely it edges us closer to being able to find out that ultimate answer.

Currently religion can provide no real evidence or fact to back up their claims which makes believing in them technically insane, or though it is more of a social illness then an individual one perpetuated by disgusting people who control the religions.


This is why I'm a big fan of science. Science, real science is always looking for the facts, using research to do so. Real science doesn't say "we know this", it says " this is what we think is going on" or "this is what we observe so far". And if there is not enough evidence to come to a conclusion it says "Too bad, we'll just have to live without knowing until more pieces of the puzzle show up, if ever". Real science never makes anything up or depends on wishful thinking.

Ok...I realize that this thread is not about "religion" but I wanted to add a few things to deny my own ignorance...

At one time, peoples of earth worshiped the SUN. The sun was "God", the giver of life (or so they seemingly rightly thought).

At some point in human history, a name was applied to the sun, and "God" was created. Then some people wrote a book, and in that book they told stories about "God" and "Jesus". All the peoples of the land at that time too that book to be "the way it is, was, and always will be". Thus, mainstream religion was created.

I too do not understand why responses to some of the forum topics have to include quotes from this book as answers. This book has no basis in fact...the events that are portrayed in this book are something that someone has written.

If I was to proclaim right now that I was "Jesus, the son of God", and "oh, I was born of a virgin mother by the way..." I would be ridiculed and shunned and probably locked up in the looney bin till I got my sh!t straight!!!


Now, this is not to say that there could not have been some sort of "creation" as opposed to "evolution". I have often wondered myself why there are still monkeys and apes, if humans supposedly evolved from them.

But suppose that human "creation" (and yeah, I'm gonna go there...) was made possible in some other way?

Perhaps humankind was "planted" here, as some suggest. Is it really that hard to imagine?
