"Evolution theory" can we believe it?
Is the Evolution theory scientifically proved? Can we believe it fully? What are the draw backs of evolution theory?
While not perfect Evolution is as much proven as any other mainstream theory but is constantly being tested by its proponents who are clearing up the boundaries where it seems to flounder.
There are some areas where evolutionary theory flounders. One which is cited is the insect swarm that settles in a way that makes the colony look like a flower, which camouflages them against predators. Another is Religion, which has never provided additional survival value to more than a small number of people (priests) the majority of whom have, historically, been celibate, and therefore has provided no benefit to the species, nor has Religion provided much in the way of helping societies survive.
Yes the idea of evolution is accepted and the areas where it has difficulties are constantly being addressed by researchers who hope to make a name for themselves. Before disbelieving it do your research. Read a lot of books on the subject. as well as books on how the human race arose.
Remember also that the fact evolutionary theory may be flawed does NOT mean that other theories such as creationism and Intelligent Design are correct.
Well, I don't know. Let's compare it to another theory: Creation. Creation theory has been disproven already by geological and biological evidence, not to mention the laws of physics. So creation could not have happened. Evolution theory has not yet been disproven. So far, all genetic and fossil evidence supports evolution.
I just posted a Hub on this particular subject and then I found the question so I can't enter the contest with my Hub - darn it.
In brief, evolutionary theory explains some things very well, and fails miserably at others. If you mean, is evolution theory adequate to explain life on this planet, then categorically no - it only solves part of the puzzle.
Evolution often gets confused with Creation, albeit I never needed a "theory" to realize that life can adapt, acclimate and evolve, hence forth the notion, evolution has nothing to do with creation... In short: No, I do not think that a pre-historic Raptor (Velociraptor) eventually turned into a turkey nor do I believe in "walking whales."

Why do you think people still argue again evolution?Seriously. This is the 21st century. I'm thinking they're in denial because it's against their religion - or they're just ignorant. What do you think?

Through evolution theory the deceiver is attempting to silence the testimony of creation about the Creator, to destroy belief in the Word and to ultimately destroy faith in the true God, replacing him with nonsensical happenings that have no meaning, no need for good rather than evil, and no...
