This does not mean it is true however
Nor does it mean it is true that Creationism is fact
Nor Intelligent design.
It is debatable and there are flaws on all sides of the debate

Actually the term "scientific theory" is used when its the best known method to describe the events in our enviroment, and can be used to predict
certain outcomes accurately over and over again.
Evolution happens all around us, and on all different scales. We can see this with hundreds of thousands of pieces from the fossil record, and even
from bacteria who within just a few generations in a pietri dish can change drastically. Dna research and theories are improving all the time and can
be used to show the mechanics of these changes.
The fact that evolution happens is not up for debate, only some of the mechanics of how these changes are directed. That will never truly be
understood until every observable case is studied and documented. That would take a long time so they just call it a theory until new evidence comes
to light which requires a better explanation to describe it.
Evolution however cannot discount a creator, but then that is not what the theory of evolution was meant to do, and there is actually no argument
which can disprove something which cannot be observed. It is not meant to describe the origin of life, only the changes and patterns we observe in all
The theory of evolution completely disproves "creationism" if you are talking about the brand which claims that we were created and have always
existed in the same form in which we appear today. Some claim 6000 years ago which is even more disprovable.

Apologies - I missed your post.
I am not well studied in scientific research regarding Evolution - My concern with Darwin's Theory is the suggestion that Humans are somehow
descended from Apes for example.
There again I do not buy into Intelligent Design or Creationism
I do believe however their is an underlying truth in all these ideas but for me non are conclusive.
However this thread is about if the title of the forum is biased - It is an very old argument with a history stemming from Christians objecting to the
teaching of Darwin's Theory of Evolution in school over the Bible.
My thoughts are though there is obvious anomisty from one side of the discussion to the other - Both hold certain truths.
I have my own ideas which I have not expressed they encompass Evolution Creation and Intelligent Design but this is about if the title of the Forum is
No I think the title is not biased it allows all sides to debate.
The OP has taken offense as he firmly believes what he does.
Yet surely one can not be expected to accept another's ideas just because they think they are right - No matter which side of the debate you are
Thanks again for your reply.
