bekll - the way i understand it you are saying that my problem isn`t with evolution, but about how the first life came about. and you are right, because....it is alot to post here. would you be uncomfortable with sending me an email so we could discuss this through that? [email protected]
The theory of evolution explains evolution. Do you have a better theory for it, or do you actually disregard the scientific fact?
I now, looking at it again, understand your second question. Quite simply, you have no idea what you`re talking about. The human brain does not store information the way you seem to be assuming. There is no limit like a set number or amount. Memory is assigned through neural pathways, which don`t have any specific capacity but are limited in terms of complexity and density.
What gives you the idea that the brain can hold far more than anyone could ever learn? Is it that crap you`ve heard tossed around like `You only use 10% of your brain!`? That`s completely false. EVERY cell in your brain is used. ALL OF IT.
Don`t go spouting things you don`t understand. People like you who reject things they don`t take the time to understand are the obstacle to scientific research.
1. Masses of basic materials in the primordial soup were hit by lightning, the energy causing them to assemble into life. Sure, it`d be nearly impossible, but when done over the span of hundreds of thousands of years over the whole planet, it happened.
2. Because we don`t have claws, or fangs, or speed, or strength. The brain developed out of a need for something to give humanity the edge.
two (pretty big) holes in the theory of evolution:1. How did the first one-celled organisms get here?
2. And, according to the theory, evolution happens out of need. if this is the case, how can you explain the human brain, because it has the ability to hold much more information than anybody could ever learn. so, how could it have evolved out of necessity?
sorry about my being late into the discussion, but like i said, i dont check this too often and people....nevermind.
We can`t recreate limestone in a controlled environment. Does that mean geology is unscientific?
We`ve never redone the Lincoln assassination in a lab. Do we have no scientific explanation for why he died?
A team of researchers was not present in Pompeii 2000 years ago. Is science unusable in this case?
We cannot recreate supernovas or black holes in a lab. Are we to disregard any attempt at a scientific explanation for them?
Think about what you type. One day someone might respect you a bit for it.
I am walking trough the streets and I see a kid screaming around on a chair with 2 parents filming it and giggling, would I react ? No. It`s obvious nobody reacts. Also I don`t think it`s real. I hope not atleast.
Oh, yeah,, whats with the whole free money!! bit?
horn4231, I would LOVE for you to point out these supposed holes.
Then the human race will go extinct. Homo Sapiens - wise humans. Yeah, right. We`d all be living in mass delusion about an imaginary sky-daddy.
Why should everyone be a Christian? Why not atheist? I, for one, are not bothered by other people having their religions but why should they force it upon us? I would never wish being Christian upon anybody! Worst damn religion ever
Ah, such a good attempt. And yet one look at Ireland would make me believe otherwise.
answer: A lot of them don`t, really. I usually choose to stay quiet unless I really feel someone is being unjust with what they`re saying, or things need to be corrected. Besides, the "fits" are probably because it`s a child being forced to preach religion. But wait!
readme08 said, "Every time you complain about religion, you are forcing your atheist views like this preacher forces Christianity. Hypocrites!"
Really? then that means whenever you complain about atheists, then you are forcing your Christian veiws on us (somehow...I don`t really see how that is either way.) Is it okay for you to critisize us and for us to do nothing about it? I know a lot of Atheist think they`re smarter than everyone else (which is wrong) but often it works both ways (which is also wrong)...
and there are gaping holes in evolution?Show me something you think is a gap that isn`t disproved in this video.
question: why do atheists feel that it is their responsibility to throw fits about videos like this? who are they trying to convince?
hmm maybe theyre actually trying to convince themselves that theyre right......gasp...
....and lets not even get started on the many gaping holes in the theory of evolution
questions, comments, [email protected]
Anyways, THEORIES are not something to brush off. THEORIES have facts that go for them AND THEORIES are widely accepted amongst scientists. A THEORY is basically a fact itself. A theory is NOT something like "Oh, I believe that pink unicorns exist."
And, I can`t even reply to your comment about scientific theories being stupid when you bleieve an invisible man in the clouds made man out of clay and women form the man`s rib.Actually, I think I just did.
Heres how it works: 1. Stand On a Box2. Act Like youre doing a give away 3. ask some questions. Gameshow style (ex. is a tomatoe a fruit or a vegitable, etc)4. Gives the answerer a dollar. repeat a few times then 5. U ASKS A JESUS QUESTION and commence preaching
ive seen this a few times. i cant help but view it as playing tricks to get people to listen to u. w/e makes u happy, its just sad seeing a child being made to do this... !arg!, dont, argue, beliefs,
Let`s just all have a Merry Christmas whether we celebrate it or not.
Sounds like my high school. Makes me sick that i have to go there.
"Christians burned witches""Tried to kill Galileo""Said the world was flat"
Those were few people and far between. THose were movements of Christianity, mostly CATHOLIC in nature, ran by stupid close-minded people.
Has anyone here actually ever read the (non-catholic) bible and spent time in a less than hypocritical hate filled church? I doubt anyone has.
stop spending your time commenting on a you tube video of an 8 year old and actually do something productive for this world. you are all talk and no action.
@ the vid, I thought the kid was cute XD FREE MONEY!!!
1) Ignore and walk away.
WOW THAT IS SO HARD! Face it, either you are right and he is wasting his time, or he is right and you`re going to Hell. I don`t get it, it sounds like a win-win to me. Why are you idiots complaining."
The third option is that niether the athiest nor the christian is right and they either both go to hell or something entirely random happens when you die.
But Maelstrom-You talk about athiests being mad that christians want to make laws and ban things according to their religion- that`s a reasonable argument.If a person isn`t christian, they have the right to be sort of pissed if they have to follow laws that are based only on the christian opinon of morality.The laws should be without religion so that everyone can live their lives by whatever beliefs they want.
poor kid, when he grows up and sees this >.>"
Ok... So? No, really. Why do you think we have these things we call "countries"? If everyone agreed on everything, there`d be no national boundaries. Why? There`d be no point.
Most of you live in a democracy, where you can put in your two cents and, at the very least, have your voice count. Even if you are on the losing side of an issue in whatever country, you have the opportunity to speak out about it and gain support (or contempt in some cases). Even at the end of the fight, you have every right to leave.
It is rather cliche, but I`ll say it anyways. In North Korea, your "vote" is worthless, your "speaking out" will get you shot, and hey, get caught leaving the country? Execution, man, woman, or child.
Use your third right. Leave for a country that suits you, or at least a state. Damn.
"and science works out a lot better than the idiotic "god did it" way."
Oh yes, science has all the answers doesn`t it? Everything evolved from a single-celled organism, and the universe was made by a speck of matter and energy.
Atheist retards don`t realize just how stupid their theories (and yes, they are theories, sorry) really sound.
Does it even matter? No. If you believe in a religion, good for you. If not, who cares? I really don`t give a flying f***. What I do hate is atheists who think Christians are "out to get them".
Here`s what you can do to survive an encounter with a Christian:
WOW THAT IS SO HARD! Face it, either you are right and he is wasting his time, or he is right and you`re going to Hell. I don`t get it, it sounds like a win-win to me. Why are you idiots complaining.
GTFO of the internets.
Nobody attempted to circumnavigate the world for centuries, simply because the Bible told them that the world is flat.
Galileo: Almost killed by the Church for his scientific research.
And then there`s all the people who were burnt as witches. Not just the Salem witch trials and the like- since churches are often hit by lightning, people assumed it was the fault of witches and killed them. It wasn`t until much later that they realized that it wasn`t Satan`s fault.
Do you really believe that theocracy is the way to go?
If that happened, we would still believe the world was flat, that gravity was angels pushing us back to the ground, that each lightening bolt came from God`s hands, and that magic exists.
Religion is primitive, guys.
keep austin weird. :)
What if everyone just stopped whining on here?
That`s what she said.
on a more serious note: If that occured God would turn into the new f-u-c-k because when you say "Marry Christmas" to an atheist and they could say it back, but NOOOO they get all pissed like "WTF YOU ASS I DON`T BELIEVE IN GOD." You may not be like this, but there are uptight non-nice individuals who are.
I`ll stick to David Blaine.
That is really sad for so many reasons, most of which have already been posted here.
That`s some scary poo.
It`s a family that overly preaches about god.They have 3 kids and anyone homosexual, they refer to as fags. So the kids learn this growing up (oldest being 8ish) and the reporter interviewed the kids aside and asked them a few questions, the kids replied things like:"They`re fags and they`re going to burn in hell, and if fags are allowed to live satan will rise up" and a bunch of stuff like that.So the reporter eventually asked "What`s a fag?"The kid, with help from his younger brother:"A fag, is anyone who... a person that does....things...that god doesn`t want...like...it`s kind of hard to explain"
So...the moral is...don`t teach your kids to be intolerant if you`re not going to tell them what they`re going to hate.
Hey Billy, you will hate fags!What`s a fag mommy?Who cares...you hate them.Okay.
I know- camoflauge cargo pants? EW!
