I think you really need to do more research on Darwinian evolution, it is no longer a competing theory in the real world against creationism.
Creationism has easily been dismissed, even if there is a god and to be blunt there isn't he did not put Adam and Eve on the planet and we started
from there. That's a ridiculous notion and has been comfortably dismissed.
The confusion I find with most religious people and evolution is that they think we evolved from monkeys, they look at a chimpanzee and think
evolutionists believe we were once chimps, that's not true. You have to remember all organisms on the planet have evolved, not just humans. Humans and
chimps for example both evolved from a common ancestor but at no point was a human a chimp, and chimps won't become human in future. We both evolved
simultaneously but along different paths.
I can appreciate that this will offend some people but it's a known discovery, it is not a theory and sooner or later the religious will have to come
to terms with it. They can still believe in god if that's what they wish to do but creationism theory really can no longer be considered as a viable
alternative to evolution.
We could go back to the bible start at the beginning and disprove it from there. For instance the bible claims that god made man on the 6th day,
simply not true, no chance, never happened. When man wrote the bible he was using the best of his knowledge at that time which was minimal to explain
creation and to be frank he got it wrong. We know undoubtedly that dinosaurs roamed the earth millions of years before man so there was a lot more
than 6 days before man evolved. There are masses of fossils that prove the existence of dinosaurs but man had not discovered them when he wrote the
bible. We never coexisted with dinosaurs, now some people claim that scientists planted dinosaur fossils as an elaborate way to destroy religion. To
be honest these people should be committed to mental institutions.
I don't want my participation in this thread to turn into a slanging match like it has in another, I have simply used evidence to explain the facts
and also my opinion. I am quite happy to read what a creationist believes but they must provide facts as part of their evidence. I can't say this
strongly enough that quotations from the bible DO NOT constitute fact, it is a book written by man, no more no less. No scripture, no deep meaningful
quotes from the religious please, just hard facts. Let's try use evidence for once.
