To me personal evolution is a fact. Considered that thousands of scientists all over the world have proofed facts that can proof the theory of evolution, I can imagine that some very crazy religious person can't and doesn't want to now about it and wants to do something about it and goes screaming and yelling that evolution is a joke and a lie. But the facts still remain. And well sorry for these religious persons that are so extremely religious that they cannot live with the fact that evolution is a fact. But at least evolution has facts that can proof the story, and that is something we cannot say about most religions.
Well it seems you have attempted to lead us toward an unanswerable question. There is NO way to prove the biblical account of creation. At the same time there is NO way to prove evolution. To asked a Christian a question as the one posed, you put them on the spot. I know that you don't understand but Christians do NOT need to prove anything to anyone. We have faith in the things not seen, and there can be NO faith wandering down this rabbit hole.
Evolution is man making a monkey out of himself. For someone to rather believe they are descended from monkeys rather than a loving creator God is mind boggling to me.
There is abundant evidence of the bible story after the flood for those that need to see it to believe. Of this there can be No doubt. Discoveries like Noahs Ark, and the finding of the Arc of the Covenant both by Ron Wyatt are there for those who will go verify them.
Now, when it comes to the very creation story one would have to submit evidence before the great flood. Among the scrolls found in the Dead Sea was found the book of Enoch. The book of Enoch was not included into the Holy Bible, but it has been dated to an antideluvian time. This book speaks of the creation of mankind.
Until evolutionist can find their so-called missing link, the bible accounts have more backing than any evoluntionist theory.

There is no need to debunk evolution because it debunks itself. My Great^1000 Grandfather was not a rock fungus.
once we create a life form evolution will be proven false.
infinite regression (creator of the creator) falls apart if we create life.
if our creation has a creator then its creator must have a creator.
Sure, evolution is self evident, but it can't explain how the universe started. I'm not religious, but I don't dismiss the idea the universe could have been created. The creator doesn't have to come from the Bible.

Do you believe in wind? Most people do, but why?
Can you see it? NO. Can you smell or taste it? NO
Can you feel it? Yes. Can you see its affects on plants, animals and people? Yes
God is the same, I am unable to see him but I see his affects on people and things.
ok....I can't "prove" that there is a God or that the earth was made by Him or that it was made by Him in a certain amount of time. I also can't "prove" that I love my wife and kids but I do.
Proving you love someone is probably one of the easiest things to prove, im sure your family know you love them right?
You can no more prove love or hate or sorrow or joy or any emotion than you can... say.....prove Darwin's theory on evolution. They are feelings and cannot be proven. In fact when science tries to... by reading physical manifestations of these feelings....they all look pretty much the same. But since you brought it up....yes...my family does "know" that I love them just like I "know" that God loves you and me.
I can't "prove" that Hitler hated Jews....but he did.
What?? now this was just plain silly.
Not silly....we can look at what he did, said and wrote and draw a conclusion but we can't prove the actual emotion of hate.
I can't "prove" that you hate Christians and just got out of your first science class in college and are all excited about what your idiot professor told you but.....you probably did.
An ad hominem attack? idiot professor? did the OP hit a nerve?
Ok....yes a bit of an ad hominem attack but no...did not hit a nerve....just have had my share of liberal humanist professors and know what they teach.
Science is science, calculating tensile strength of metals and boiling points of this and melting points of that. Science has no more "proof" of how we got here than the Bible has "proof". But.....if scientists were unafraid to look at our beginnings and the earths with the point of view that creationism is a valid thing to look at.....then we might have more proof.
Creationism has contributed nothing to science, has no evidence and has been and is pushed by dishonest proponents at every turn. Maybe you could change this?
Creationism did not set out to "contribute" to science that I know of.....dishonest proponents? Who?
Science is not protected by the constitution.....religion is. There is a reason for this. Religion does not set out to attack science but in the theory of evolution....science does set out to attack religion.
Set out to attack religion? scientists had a meeting and made up a entire scientific theory in order to attack religion? specifically your religion? If you feel threatened by evolution, maybe your faith wasn't that strong to begin with no?
Umm....what? Now who is attacking? My faith is fine I assure you and would be glad to talk to you about yours....it is never too late.....well....I guess there is a point it is too late but you know what I mean.
My physics professor at Boston Architectural (many years ago) was a brain researcher for the Mars project at MIT. He stated that most physicists "knew" there had to be a creator but were in fear of their jobs and status and would never admit it. As a side note....he also told us that our jump from non-stealth technology to stealth technology was impossible.
I know this is ATS, but this is just plain silly. You seem to be implying that within the scientific community there's some kind of conspiracy that's enforced somehow in-order to discredit religion?
Not sure if you are just playing here or not but you should check into this one....fun little research project for you.
And of-course, aliens....
