How else would my Doduo become a Dodrio?
I believe in god, but it's ignorant to think that evolution doesn't exist to sone extent because of all the supporting evidence. Example: the peppered moth.
Evolution only explains the formation of new species, not the universe.
For all we know, the world was made five seconds ago and you were made with all your memories etc.
I'm a christian and believe that creationism and the theory of evolution go hand in hand. Who is to say that the very first species that started it all off wasn't created by God?
well, in order for evolution to be true, organisms would live and died over thousand or millions of years. meaning death is natural. however, the bible says the wages of sin is death.
so, sin=death. if death is natural, sin=?
The invention of sin didn't come around until humans came(I suppose you know the story of Adam and Eve, which is basically how sin started). So up until that point maybe death did simply come natural without sin.
The ones who could died before they could reproduce because they didn't do anything else.
You're right, I disbelieve in God for other reasons.
Damn evolution! I want my future generations to continue to have pinkies!
But maybe very fast thumbs for texting...
oh my god yeah!! gods just hanging out up there and then hes like, im gonna make one tiny little particle that will eventually turn into a huge thriving world full of mysteries and complexity over the course of a billion years. that would kick ass.
(Your+name+(optional)): I think that would also be more impressive on god's part than simply making stuff. Like, having an ant farm or fish tank and letting it thrive vs. building a Lego world out of existing pieces that never change (or something like that).
Yeah, I'm Christian, and I believe in evolution but not the theory of evolution.
Evolution but not the theory? Confused....could you explain?
uh, well from what little I know about evolution and biology, it seems stupid not to know that animals evolve, for example: the camel has evolved to use very little amounts of water in its barren environment. That being said, I don't believe that we as humans evolved from apes. I believe in creation.
That's why I said: from what little I know about evolution and biology. I was asked my opinion and I gave it, I wasn't declaring my word as truth. Sensitive much.
This is not meant to come out as insulting or provocative, I am actually curious, but why would some animals have evolved, but not humans? Shouldn't we have come about in the same way?
yeah I've wrestled with this idea for a long time. Maybe humans, as a near perfect species, need not evolve? I'm not quite sure on the answer myself. I suppose its just what I believe, its just my faith.
So, let me just make sure I am clear, you beleive that while other animals have adapted to their surroundings, God created us the way we are?
In a nutshell, yes, that's the way I see it. I don't really care if you agree or disagree though, its my views.
you think humans are a near-perfect species? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH
You emphasized THEORY in such a manner suggesting that you believe it's just a theory. Well, gravity is JUST a theory.
Anyway, regardless, you clearly have NO understanding of what evolution is or how it works.
Creationists say "theory" as if it's something that scientists thought of one night while drinking.
The issue here is of micro- vs macro-evolution.
In case you are wondering I no wayed this post because evolution has nothing to do with the creation of the universe.
Whatever caused the Big Bang I call God.
Yeah, IMO for faith to be real, it has to be congruent with the real world (not necessarily the visual world). See quantum physics - amazing stuff.
How does evolution create the universe? This is so frickin stupid.
philosophical panda is not as philosophical as the philosoraptor. evolution has nothing to do with creating the universe. as explained by anon below me, it explains the formation of new species.
Well mister genius, if you read the post you'd know it was saying it created the universe. I was saying that part was stupid. Idiotards like you annoy me.
Well, in Islam, Allah created the world in seven days and seven days.
Seven days and seven days?... lolwut
fourteen days or two weeks?
I'm sorry, seven days and seven nights.
I mean six! My head's messed up!
actually it would equal a fortnight too
No, it doesn't say days specifically, it's more ambiguous just 7 periods of time, because time to God is different than time to humans (i.e. Muslims believe that 1 day in hell is equivalent to 70 years on Earth)
Evolution makes sense, the world has evolved and animals have changed to fit their surroundings, humans included a thousand years we didn't have computers, today we argue on them.
Here is a great link to explain it all!
