    Or do they find it too much of a threat to their beliefs?

      It depends. There are 2 different types of evolution, and they are biological evolution, and then there's the theory of evolution. True Christians don't accept the theory, but biological evolution is a scientific fact. For example, the genes in a species evolve to created different breeds of species, i.e, Asians can be either Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, or Korean. They are different but are all considered Asian. That is an illustration of biological evolution. For animals, consider the different breed of dogs, cats, mammals, all are different, but are all distinctly defined and associated with whatever class they belong to.

      The theory of evolution teaches that humans evolved from either Apes, or Chimpanzees, and that dogs and other animals all evolved from that one species. Such a theory goes against creation, and not only creation, but against the "Natural Law of Order." The natural law of order is the process of of living things.

        so they pick and choose the parts of science to try to make it fit to their beliefs?  I saw a christian insist that only "kinds" went on the ark eg cat, lion, tiger are the same kind.   Like to see a cat atttempt to mate with a lion.

        Evolution doesn't actually state that humans evolved from apes/monkeys, but rather they have a common ape-like ancestor.

          the theory of evolution, is just that a theory not science

            why do you say that?  It's a much science as any other scientific model (eg Earth rotating & going around sun; pathogenic micro-organisms causing disease; etc)

            The word "theory" is misunderstood by non-scientists.  In science, a theory is backed up by a huge body of factual evidence and observations (including from other scientific disciplines like geology), and refined

            eg it's only recently that huge strides have been made in science with genetics - and the mechanisms for evolution are further understood

              evolution is still just theory, no evidence, you can spout all you want there is no0 facts on the theory of evolution, that is why it is still called a theory, once a theory is proven with facts it is no linger a theory.

                so fossils, geological rock records (layers and radioactive dating), DNA results don't equal evidence?   What would you consider to be evidence?  Do you think the earth is still flat too?

                  research you evidence to see if it says evolution is fact.  It will not.

                No, YOU call it the theory of evolution. The process of evolution is a documented fact, and is evidenced daily in our lives. Ever heard of antibiotic resistance, organic foods, etc.?

            Here ya go. These are also considered theories, do you dispute that each of these are science? Of course you do if you are standing by your previous attempts to discreadit science based on your inability to realize or admit that the scientific use of a word is difeerent than the every day usage of it.
            If as some on here state that a theory is defined as a set of commonly held beliefs which have no absolute proof. You have just agreed that religion is a theory with your interpretation of the word theory. Any more theories you want to discuss? How about the stork theory? How about the theory that states the less intelligent an area is the likely that said area is extremely religious? 8 of the 10 least educated states are in the top 10 most religious states, not a theory, a fact.

              You make your point in a stunning way. Excellent work enumerating the evolution of human knowledge... thus the evolution of man himself. Should human knowledge continue to evolve further and farther into an "unlimited future" (ie. man  does not end his own existence via one or two or three nuclear fireball) would that evolution ultimately involve his devolution into an altogether different life form i.e. a roboticized, mechanized, matallicized, version of his former "human form"? When that happens, would he still consider himself human?

        Humans did not evolve from apes, we are apes.

        Moreover, the theory of evolution does NOT teach that humans evolved from chimpanzees and anyone who says it does does not have the slightest understanding of the science.

        Humans and chimpanzees descend from a long-extinct common ancestor. How long extinct? Probably about 6-8 million years. To put that in a little more perspective, modern chimpanzees are believed to be only about 1 million years old as a species, and (biologically) modern humans only about 200,000 years old. Evolution is the result of insignificant changes building up over almost unfathomably vast periods of time.

        Not at all, carbon dating is inaccurate, the moon alters it orbit by a small amount every year if the earth were billions of years old, accordingly the moon would be out by jupiter by now. Evolution.. hahahaha. silly monkey stuff.

        but it doesn't matter to them anyways, no amount of factual evidence is going to change their belief system.
        We are not limited by what we see and touch and feel. We are spirit and where the spirit goes nobody knows.

        Hahaha.. and you have avoided the indoctrination of the world and the 5 senses... lol... Most paths to god say the world is but an illusion, a temporary distraction, a lie.. and you are sucked right into it.. lol. We are not deluded my friend we see this world for what it is. But until you see beyond your limiting senses and rational thinking, what jesus taught about a life in the spirit, there isn't a place for you.

          Thanks for making my point. You are free to show how carbon dating is inaccurate since you've made the claim, if you can.

          The moon does not alter it's orbit. The tidal forces of gravity between the earth and moon, which consequently slows the rotation of the earth while the moon moves away from the earth.

          It's quite hilarious when you post these things without actually doing any research whatsoever.

          Yes, in order to be fully indoctrinated into a religion, one must deny reality.



          No, you see the world as your religion has indoctrinated you to see it. Of course, reality exists despite that indoctrination.

      Evolutiion did and continues to exist. It is the result of Creation. For out of creation, things "came forth". evolved.

      I am POSITIVE that there was a big bang. HAD to be.

The verity of evolution  could neither deny  nor eliminate  the existence of  "supernatural force" that initiated the evolutionary process to begin with, leading to life on  earth as we know it.

          It's called refining, it's how rare things are obtained from a mass of substance which contains mainly impurities.

          With water you distil it taking 100% of the impurities out leaving only pure water.

          With precious metals you refine it by extreme heat which burns the dross away, leaving pure gold or silver.

          With humanity it seems God chose to give each individual human the choice to be refined, distilled or not.

      Don Wposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Theistic evolutionists do not think it a threat. Their belief is that god exists and created the universe and set in motion the processes by which life on earth evolve. Or created the universe and guided the process of evolution. This is the approach to evolution taken by the Catholic church and many mainstream Protestant churches. The result of this view (or perhaps the consequence of it) is a non-literal reading of the Bible (specifically the Genesis account of creation) which is read as allegorical rather than literal. Christians don't have a uniform belief in terms of evolution, as a literal reading of the Bible is not a prerequisite to being a True Christian™

      evolution is not a threat at all. LOL       Science is not a threat either. When science comes up with anything concrete, that may or cannot be changed somewhere down the road then I will just be amazed. As for evolution it is just another example of mankind looking back over things that have happened and trying to put it all together in a rational way of thinking, leaving out the supernatural aspect of God. Shame really, just a shame.

      The bible is many types of prose, wisdom writing, mythopoetic phrases, poetic, parable, metaphor. Indeed one has to be smarter than harry potter to figure it out lol.

        "As for evolution it is just another example of mankind looking back over things that have happened and trying to put it all together in a rational way of thinking, leaving out the supernatural aspect of God."

        Much better than looking back and conviniently ignoring/forgiving/justifying any crime done in the name of god in the past smile

        And yeah, we all know Harry Potter is real and a true story, because it's written in a book, then it must be true. It's just this idiot atheists trying to explain the Universe without ressorting to Harry's supernatural powers. How stupid of them! Actually trying to learn and find something out instead of accepting it was just magic.

    I look at the human body, and with what little I know, it is SSSOOO intricate, complex and perfectly well tuned to function, and then I listen to all the mutation and adaptation crap dished out as if it really is true, that it makes me shake my head.
    Why the *%&#$ would something just somehow come together into a "body" and live, and be self coscious, social, reproduce and learn?
    GIVE ME A BREAK! You all call yourselves "intelligent" & "rational".

    Just take any single organ/system in the body, and look into all it's complexity etc, and then explain to me (no, everyone) why, and how, "mother nature", with no intelligence, purpose and no "knowledge" would make it so?

    I eagerly wait for a REAL explanation.

    (PS, pls do not include the words adaptation amd mutation). Thanx

      Have you examined evolution properly (not just stuff told by creationists) - I doubt it
      .
      Would like concrete explanations of what you make of fossil records, genetic tests etc

      You're in the intelligence design camp (where I was when I was christian).  You look at something that is complex and say "someone had to make it" and then look no further (because it's too scary to consider something that conflict with your entire belief system).   

      Scientists say, "wow, that's fascinating.", and look deeper into it.

      The genome (the DNA) of rice (which looks simple) is many times larger than the genome of humans (which appear more complex).

      Is the human body really such a brilliant design? - most people need their vision correction, many suffer from bad backs and bung knees.

      Do you consider siamese twins a wonderful design?  A frog with eyes in its mouth instead of its head? (I saw a photo). A baby with no brain? (someone at work had to terminate a pregnancy because their baby had no brain)? 

      There's some pretty freakish creatures out there - look up a star-nosed mole - pretty darn ugly - did god create that?

      Barnacles that have a penis several times the length of their bodies? 
      Some animals that have two penises?
      Why are marsupials (hundreds of species) concentrated in australia?
      Why are there dinosaur bones and how did dinosaurs die?
      Why do many  things reproduce without sexual reproduction?
      How is it some creatures undergo natural sex changes (anenomefish, the fish on "nemo" for example)
      Why do numbats have 52 teeth (the most of any mammal) when they don't need them?(they eat soft termites)

      Why were there cave people and other people more "primitive" than biblical times?


      Do you believe other parts of science, and just dismiss evolution? I think you can't throw something out unless you have looked at it properly.

    Most will accept that even if the whole kit and kaboodle did 'evolve' God started the process.

    Evolution does not challenge God, but it may highlight humanities ignorance as to exactly HOW we all got here, and why the conditions are exactly perfect for life to exist.

    How it started is what the debate centres upon, and both sides hold their opinions to be correct.

    According to Bart Ehrman, Ph.D. religion from UNC Chapel Hill, most of the inerrantists are located in the U.S., primarily within the bible belt, which is mostly mid-America and the South.  Christians in the rest of the world are not nearly so reliant upon the words in the bible for their beliefs.

    It is really this vocal minority of evangelical Protestant Christians who oppose the evolutionary explanation as contrary to the bible, which they believe to be the inerrant word - and for some the literal word - of god.

      Every fossil museum can handily dismiss this myth. Here's an example:

      The horns of titanotheres (extinct Cenozoic mammals) appear in progressively larger sizes, from nothing to prominence. Other head and neck features also evolved. These features are adaptations for head-on ramming analogous to sheep behavior (Stanley 1974).

Most of them have evolved zero since the disappearence of their larger cousins. Which raises a question: Why did they survive the major extinction, and the four other subsequent extinctions. The subject though was evolution vs Christians, which I am not, though my beliefs do stem from judaeo concepts, including the messiahianic promise.

              Even some unicellular organisms have larger genomes than humans.  The amoeba has genome 200x larger than humans.  Even rice has genome larger than humans.

      kerrygposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      "how come nothing else has evolved?"

      Everything else has evolved, and is still evolving.

      "why do we still have monkeys?"

      Contrary to popular creationist belief, humans did not evolve "from" monkeys. We share a common ancestor. In the case of monkeys, this common ancestor was about 29-35 million years ago, when the ape family split from the Old World monkeys. The Old World monkeys continued along their own evolutionary path, which eventually resulted in familiar modern species such as baboons, macaques, vervet monkeys, and colobus monkeys. The apes continued along a different one, eventually resulting in gibbons, gorillas, orangutans, chimpanzees, and humans. Our closest living relatives are the chimpanzees (common chimpanzees and bonobos) and the last common ancestor we shared with them lived about 6-8 million years ago. Chimpanzees are believed to be about 1 million years old, as a species, and humans about 200,000.

      Also contrary to creationist belief, humans are not the pinnacle of evolution and everything else is not trying to "become" us. We'll be something different - or several somethings different - in another few hundred thousand or million years, and so will most other familiar species of the modern world.

      There are some things, such as horseshoe crabs, that change very little over tens or hundreds of millions of years, but that's because they are perfectly adapted to their environment and their environment has changed little for all that time. As land animals, humans are unlikely to be able to say the same.

      "why are we not evolving ourselves?"

      We are. You just can't see it happening. Humans and chimps share 96% of the same genes, so it took most of 6-8 million years to lead to a 4% genetic difference.

      Evolution is the result of tiny changes building up over almost unfathomably vast periods of time.

      "and how come we have found no trace of the "missing link"?"

      Actually we have pretty good knowledge of the evolutionary progression of a number of species, including our own. You're not going to find something that's exactly "halfway" between one species and another, because individual genetic variation can cause tremendous differences between individuals of the same family, let alone the same species.

      For example, we know our ancestors got taller over time, but it wasn't necessarily a uniform progression. The average height of each species increased, but within the species, some individuals would still be unusually short and others would be unusually tall. The normal range of modern human height ranges from about 4'8" (barely larger than some of our ancient ape-like ancestors) to 6'8" - there is no reason to think that Australopithecus, for example, wouldn't have had similar variation.

        Baileybear, I really enjoy the improved lifestyle modern science offers. I give God all the glory for science. Without God, science would not exist. You are fully aware that God is the source, but you refuse to give God the credit. All is well. God loves you.

      I totally agree, here, Science actually compliments the bible.

      Many christans are afraid of science but it actually validates the bible, if they would take the time to see this.

      And if it weren't for science we wouldn't have all the cool stuff that we do now.

      Did you know velcro was invented by NASA. That's cool.

              The bible also talks about the hydrolic cycle.  You know where the clouds, and storms that form over the sea then move inland and dump water in the form of rain, hail, snow, etc. Then the, lakes feed into and out of the rivers which run ito the sea. etc, etc, a continuous cycle.

              There is a passage in the bible I can't remember where, I would have to research it since it has been many years since I learned it.

              but it goes something like this.

              All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full. From where the waters came there they will return.   Pretty cool huh.

                  Yeah I'm not a particularly religious person but it has always fascinated me how much science actually does validate the bible. If you know where to look. 

                  I was raised in a household where one parent never went to church, and the other went occassionaly, yet my mom made us go even if they didn't so  I got mixed messages.   But once we were older we were not made to go. Mom says she made us go so we would get a foundation of the bible then let us choose for ourselves what to do. 

                  Oh and thanks for the compliment. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I'll take it. Brains........Okay I'll take it too, It's probably pretty wrinkled. lol

    My religious choices have nothing to do with the far-fetched claims of evolution. It's just hard to believe. There has been mountains of evidence proven wrong countless times. The wisest men thought the sun went around the earth. The intelligent society agreed the earth was flat. Nasa just ruled Pluto is not a planet. NASA does nothing without a mountain of evidence. If NASA can be wrong, could'nt Darwin be? You must believe everything you read. Dare to think a little.

        It seems like the main reason Christians object to Darwinism is due to its moral, or "immoral", implications. But even if Darwinism truly does threaten the moral order of society, that still doesn't mean it's wrong. For Darwin, morality is simply another trait acquired through natural selection, and human beings may just be ready to shed that trait just as we have left behind our big noses, hairy bodies and nomadic lifestyle.

        So in truth, it's foolish for anyone to argue that Darwinism is responsible for the unprecedented immoral behavior of the past century, because Darwinism isn't immoral. It's amoral. Morality is just another dispensible variable in the Darwinian equation, and it's surely not a strong base for any argument against a Darwinist -- who has his mind fixed on something more empirical, pragmatic, and constant, namely the law of nature, which is also amoral.

          evolution is neutral about morals.  Creationist reject it because it casts huge doubt on their belief system (which is all subjective)

      You can look at it this way. God told Adam that he will die within a day of eating the fruit from the forbidden tree but Adam didn't infact he lived for quite sometime after (he and his wife). So it is evident that one day to God is many many years for us. Therefore when GOD said he created the earth in 7 days, it would have been a really long time on earth from a human standpoint, therefore in that time during his creation evolution could have taken place.

      Darwin was a christian that became agnostic.  His theory has had overwhelming evidence supporting it over the last 150 years with discoveries etc. 

      Those things you heard about Darwin (all crap) - you got those from an anti-evolutionist?

      No were does the Bible say 7 days of 24 hours, and the Quran cannot correct the Bible, not now or ever. PAAR YOU WORRY  SO MUCH ABOUT THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE THANK YOU; is this because you love reading the true word of God?

      You hardly ever Quote the Quran, or the Torah, paar you should also get a better understanding, of the Bible as you quote the Bible so much.
      I do not need or want to get a understanding of the Quran, as I am told to ubderstand the Quran first you must learn arabic, as Arabic cannot be translated to ENGLISH, then after I can read the Quran I must have sombody EXPLAIN what it means, OH REALLY!!!!
