I was reading your post and how you'd believe in God. I was thinking you could both accept evolution and believe in creation. There a lot of people
who believe in theistic evolution.
I've never got my head around why people who believe in God wouldn't believe in evolution, even if we couldn't prove it, which we can, it just
makes sense, how else would God ensure a biologically diverse planet?
This poster clearly has fallen for the BS being passed around by "intelligent design" believers. He's attacking things that have nothing to do
with evolution. It's sad really, because they simply ignore the reality of the situation, ignore the things evolution does explain, so they attack
things that have nothing to do with evolution.
the theory of evolution explains how, through random mutation and adaptation, life evolved into more and more complex organisms. That's it. It
doesn't even try to explain why it started, or how. It has nothing to do with how the universe came into being, and has absolutely nothing to do
with the big bang theory. This crap actually makes me mad, really mad, because people like that guy are the ones ensuring the next generation of
americans are going to be idiots.
if you want to live in fantasy land find, do it, that's great, stop poisoning children with your religious mumbojumbo. If the human race is to
survive, we need science, and if you stop teaching it, which many us states have, you've doomed us all.
But, even though some of the things the OP talked about aren't related to evolution, he's still wrong.
nothing from nothing? Well, in relation to the universe, that's the simplest way to put it, our weak little human brains can't actually comprehend
another reality, we can't grasp the concept, so we can't begin to explain what came before. Nothing from nothing doesn't mean there was nothing,
it means this reality wasn't there, there might have been another, we don't know.
what we do know is the universe wasn't always here. It's "expanding" as such as things millions of lightyears away are just getting light to us
now, as it takes light time to travel those distances. It's expanding as the light reaches us, this doesn't mean it's still expanding, it could be
a done deal at this point.
And life can't spring from non life?
Well, yes and no. We can't pinpoint the exactly "spark" that changed it, but we can get pretty damn close.
In the early universe, earths atmosphere was mostly hydrogen, oxygen didn't exist as the main atmosphere until life evolved and started spitting it
out from plants.
An experiment that has been done as far back as the 60s or 70s, and repeated, shows you something amazing.
A closed system, a giant glass globe. the only things placed into it are the gasses and elements that would have been present on earth back then,
the same stuff that you find in abundance all over the universe. Completely inert, no life to it at all. You mix that up in the closed system and
apply current, and a few weaks later, what do you have? Basic amino acids. The building blocks of dna and life. something from nothing, no, life
from no life? no, but again, evolution doesn't try to address how life started initially, only how it got to what we see here.
And next, OP will tell me, if we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys? Again, because that's what he was told to think. We didn't
evolve from monkeys, we share a common ancestor way back down the line.
The only fake in this thread is the OP and his spoon fed opinion, baseless and fact-less as it is.
