Discussion of everything related to the Theory of Evolution.

Well the topic of the thread disqualified it from scientific discussion in the beginning. I won't cry if it's canned.

I think it is important in a scientific forum to hear the arguments put forward that people use to support some widely held, but unproven, views. America has recently been threatened by minority groups trying to ban the teaching of Evolution in schools. It is surely in the interest of the scientific community to try to understand how these people reason and argue their points of view. How else are we to stop ourselves from sliding back into the Dark Ages? It could be argued that the greatest threat to the USA comes more from home grown religion than from foreign terrorists.

It never ceases to amaze me how many people are utterly incapable of separating the topics of evolution and religion. Really any religious discussion should be held in the off-topic section, but no one seems to really follow or enforce that rule.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

I'll admit they make some interesting discussions. I don't think anyone's ever changed their views because of them though.

Perhaps the best thing these discussions have to offer is that the debating parties search for information regarding the topic to help their POV, and learn some things in the process. Of course their sources aren't always reliable, scientific, or objective :).

You have a point; I must admit that I have learned a bit just by researching to prepare a better argument in these debates. However I still think it would be nice to just once have a discussion about evolution itself, without it becoming a religious crusade.

Today I think is the contemporary of eve's apple. The more we know and know the more we thirst for answers very far that our mind could explain.

In the beginning, there is nothing...God said, let there be light, and there was light.
God asked, where are we when he laid the foundations of the earth? who measured its dimensions and space?

Where are we now?

jeremiah_1990 wrote:I believe God created the universe and everything in it. And that evolution is an incorrect 'THEORY' made by the human race to neglect God. I want your argument about why you believe that human existence is a freak accident or if we were created for a purpose.


I believe evolution was not a creation of man it is only his discovery

evolution is a creation in process

so it was not a freak accident because it was part of his plan

Let us pretend for a split second that everything just is.
No God.
No evolution.
Not even just sudden existance.
An always was and always will be world.
Creation is out of the picture.
Things just are.

If what you say is true, Jones, then somebody (or perhaps no one?) put a lot of effort into convincing us that the world was very different in the past from what it is today.
