In light of scientific evidence, many, if not most, religious people now days accept that the human body is the result of evolutionary changes, and
that mankind shares it's roots in the tree of life with ancient non-human, common ancestors.
Religious people accept their physical realities are the result of evolution?
Mankind shares roots with ancient, non-human ancestors?
Excuse me while I kiss the sky...
... oh, where are you? You should be up here too, lol!
How do we do this? I mean, if someone preaches Jesus, we file our teeth for the attack.
Who in the hell are we? I mean, as a species... a species that hasn't even found a way to land a human being on another planet yet or a way to even
leave this speck of a solar system in a vast, vast universe... how in the heck do we come to firm conclusions on how we got here?
Oh... science. The same science that denied powered flight well after Orville and Wilbur actually did it?
The science that suggested that human flesh would fly from our bones if we traveled more than 45 mph?
We're not that smart... not yet. Once we leave this little cradle we call earth and someday, some way get out and crawl down the hall... maybe. But
Religion is not based on fact and never has been. It is based on a faith in an ancient collection of manuscripts that have little physical proof. This
requires belief in one's heart.
Science is based on things that supposedly can be proven... except that the book changes with each new discovery and every new generation... which is
as it should be except that today, we apply faith to science like it was a religion!
Debunking original sin? How about debunking what science once held to be non-debunkable in the 18th and 19th and 20th centuries... and what will
almost certainly be debunkable by the end of this one?
Religion ain't bad... but the book is closed.
Science is good... but it is a book that never closes.
We need to be able toi understand those differences.
