On a side note, I haven`t derided the opinion of others when they approach this subject inquisitively rather than militantly, which is why I`m not calling you a jackass.
Quote I read years and years ago.
You choose. It is your belief, after all. Your mind, your soul, your choice. I don`t think that answers your question, but it is better than the one-word `faith` I could`ve used.
I`m not trying to insult. I`m attempting to see if I can get some sort of Platonic dialogue going.
Nothing. It`s not a theory, it`s a belief. It has to prove or predict nothing. Take it as it is, or don`t take it.
Not insulting here, so don`t go down that road.
Next time, do some research, make sure what you`re saying is right and don`t chase your own tail in an argument. You say you should have more sense than to start the conversation but your lack of sense is too painfully obvious to ignore or cover up. Stop trying.
I disagree. If any of this occurred I believe it was simply God (chose your own God to fill in the entity) using this method to see a means to justify an end (or goal).
But as soon as you can show me manuscripts predating any other literature in reference to Higher powers, then I`ll read it. Till then I`ll read my Bible, Koran, etc. take your pick.
To attack `higher powers,` specifically God in this instance, by stating it isn`t even a theory is in your own words "...stupid, infantile, and fundamentally invalid." Since scientific evidence has risen to support specific instances in the Bible.
Now, if you want to argue that *nothing* can ever be proven, well, that`s a philosophical point and not easily debatable, but it also seems to require you to throw out almost all higher mathematics.
I don`t believe anyone living can say whether God exists or not. Something happened a long while ago, and things existed somehow. Unless you`re some all-knowing being, we only have theories and science to TRY to explain how things work, and why things are the way they are. Science might not always be right, and there`s not really any evidence proving or disproving God, so it`s a bit useless arguing who is right in this day and age.
That is exactly what I believe, I`m Agnostic by the way. I think some kind of "God", or Higher Being, Created us, but we have evolved from the origional creation. Nice point out, I never knew Darwin actually said that. It`s something I have just started looking into.
How is saying it is a theory attacking it? It is a theory, there is no indefinite proof. There are only some supporting facts. I`m not saying its wrong, its just not a proven fact. If he was attack it by saying it`s not a fact, then you are attacking him by saying it`s not a theory.
Amazing how evolutionists kinda swept that one under the carpet...
The sad part is, I suppose I have myself to blame for inciting you. Usually, I wouldn`t even bother, but I suppose the boredom got to me. Of course, I`ve enjoyed you assuming, for some reason or another, I`m full of hot air. I mean, that`s logical considering that I breathe air and my body temperature has been floating about 99 degrees lately (I have a bit of a fever), but that has no bearing on anything. But I am offended by you making the insinuation that I`m guilty of double speak.Of course, if you were to rationalize, as you insist I should, then you`d realize that evolution is a lot more sensible than God breathing life into dirt. Regardless, I`m done with this conversation, I usually have more sense than to start in the first place.Oh, and my name`s Jeffery. Not Jackass; but you were close.Cheers mate, try
haha! I saw one of those "truth" smoking commircials and there was a guy to went to an addiction center who said he was addicted to running and they wouldnt accept him
Whether or not I`m full of hot air, at least I can maintain rationality.
You know, I could explain how that statement is fundamentally imbecilic for the complete lack of understanding of what a scientific theory is. I could also elaborate on the blind duck speak-esque quality of that statement, used as a blind defense when one cannot think of anything useful to say. I could even go so far as to explain why the senselessness behind even trying to use that as a valid argument in ANY context.But, I`m not.Instead, let me say this:
Evolution is a theory, but God doesn`t even have that much.
Just buy a girls gone wild and stop making excuses.
So, they either form out of a puddle of your magical amino acids, or they were created that way.
Even if this comment is idiodic, based on propoganda, etc, etc. There are still lots more unproven things. Including how something formed out of nothing. You have your theories on that too, but .... seriously....think about it. something out of nothing just doesn`t happen without some kind of God...
Well, maybe cheeseman1 ties.
Evolution is not a fact it`s a theory. [/quote]
Your making fun of people who run? You should try it. Maybe it will burn that fat surrounding your brain.
Plus Evolution is Scientific fact, which means it`s the most supported theory. Therefore, Evolution is fact, and theory.
haha cheeseman - homo erectus is funny. i didn`t pick up on that until you said it lol
LOL - and I just saw the hand of God pushing me down to the Earth and preventing me from drifting aimlessly into space. Damn it... there goes another "theory"...
There are many theories in the world. The theory of gravity. The theory of relativity. The theory of plate tectonics. Atomic theory. A great many. Theories are quite useful, it would seem. They allow us to describe and attempt to predict the behavior of the universe according to our observations, and can be modified as our understanding is refined. As Stephen Jay Gould wrote, "Einstein`s theory of gravitation replaced Newton`s, but apples did not suspend themselves in mid-air, pending the outcome." I have no idea where this animosity towards theories comes from.
Very interesting article. I can`t help but think that it really could be quite effective in an ancient landscape to simply spook large game, tracking them and keeping them in sight until they collapse from exhaustion or let themselves be cornered.
Evolution is not a fact it`s a theory.
So, remember kids, the next time you need a meal in the desert, chase a rabbit! He can`t run from you!!
"Most animals would develop hyperthermia — heat stroke in humans — after about 10 to 15 kilometers"
So all I need to do to get my prehistoric sub sandwich with extra gazelle is run for 15k?! :-o - easier to make a net and catch a fish!
Uhh...aren`t Tortoises part of the animal kingdom already...
