    So? There are those who believe Pop-Tarts are mammals. It doesn`t make two sh|ts of difference what a bunch of deluded religious nutjobs believe. Science wins out.

    Silly christians. The truth of evolution does not prove there are not gods. Evolution could be the method a divinity might create life.

    I don`t think there are gods but not because of evolution. There are so many gods - They can`t all be real. And if some are made it`s likely they all are.

    What was that? What a pointless video.

    And when Darwin released his evolution theory, church at the time didn`t oppose it either. It is these days they are against it.

    That was dumb!!

    I`m so tired of the stupid "Evolution is just a theory" argument from creationists. Go back to school and learn the difference between "Theory" and "Scientific Theory".

    Also evolution itself is absolute fact, there are tons of fossil records and scientific data to prove that. The concept of how evolution works (natural selection, genetic mutation, etc...)is known as Evolutionary theory. Learn the difference people.

    So what about the various dog breeds then, considering they all originated from the same animal? Prime example of evolution, even created/guided by humans.

    If a creator god did choose evolution as a nethod then theat deity must be even more of a psychopathic, murderous monster than the one in the OT.

    `Scientists are elitist`

    That much is true. I applied for the post of Professor of Bio-chemistry at King`s College Cambridge and didn`t even get an interview. Seems if you haven`t got a `degree` in `science` you can`t get into the club. I got a B at Chemistry `O` level, dammit.

    Then I applied for a job a science correspondant at the Daily Mail but I was overqualified.

    It`s a conspiracy, I tells ya.

    This isn`t a Christian thing. It`s a conspiracy nut thing. Most Christians believe that evolution is the way it happened. Christianity and science are not incompatible.

    What creationists don`t understand is that if you are a scientist, especially a biologist, and you could find credible, conclusive, and reproducible evidence disproving evolution, you would be the richest scientist in the world. You could command huge speaking fees from religious organizations and universities, get lucrative book deals from religious publishing houses, and grants from organizations like the Templeton Foundation.

    The potential personal rewards for finding evidence against evolution far, far outweigh the rewards for research and evidence that supports evolution. Because these rewards are so high, it is an absolute certainty that if there was solid evidence to be found that discredits the theory, it would have been found by now.

    Yup, it`s the biggest conspiracy ever. Even the earth itself is in on it (always revealing those deceptive fossils), and every lifeform on earth, right down to the genetic level. In fact, it seem like it`s only the creationists who`ve been left out, and they made that choice themselves.

    there are still people that think the earth is we pay attention to them? NO. so it is with this load of total BS.

    evolution is a fact, like it or not...though since it makes your survival on this world possible you should like it.

    Of all the arsebrained conspiracy beliefs (and there are many), denial of evolution is possibly the most deluded for one main reason:

    Most of the more whackjob conspiracy beliefs are impossible or impractical to prove false. How, for example, would you *prove* that the Queen of the UK is not an alien? Even if you somehow obtained a DNA sample that shows human, conspiracy believers could say that the sample is fake (more conspiracy!) or that alien technology can disguise even DNA.

    But evolution is easily proven - it happens all the time. Humans have been using it as a tool for millenia. Denying the existence of evolution isn`t just believing in something implausible, even wildly implausible. It`s believing in something *proven* to be false. It`s as deluded as denying the existence of gravity or light.

    "This isn`t a Christian thing. It`s a conspiracy nut thing. Most Christians believe that evolution is the way it happened. Christianity and science are not incompatible."

    Yes, it is. Circular logic is strong until any part of it can be disproved.

    if science disproves teachings of the bible, then Christians must accept that the bible is either not wholly correct, or at least open to an extremely `liberal` (literal, not political definition of the word) interpretation.

    There is no guide to what parts are really true and what parts are made up bull crap. Therefore, any and all of it could be a falsehood or open to liberal interpretation.

    Dracyla, you`re right. All of it could be made up bullcrap. But that still doesn`t make it incompatible with science, unless you mistakenly think the Bible is intended to be a scientific textbook instead of a book showing who God is (as in, Creationists). I don`t think science disproves anything in the Bible, because I don`t think the point of the Bible IS to be a literal telling of the exact timeline, or an exact telling of the physical science manner in which the world was created. So to me there is no circular logic involved. Maybe I misunderstand your point, though.

    Watch Cosmos, with Neil Degrasse Tyson. He explains evolution in a clear rational.

    I would say more, but there are too many problems with this debate for me to tackle in 1000 characters or less.

    A big problem is scale. The human brain can`t visualize what can happen in 10,000 years, much less 10 million. Evolution is very slow and very fluid. Even though we have names for animals of the past, they were all just a sample along a chain of ever-changing creatures. Nothing was ever really a "final product", unless it became extinct. It`s just how our brains are wired; we like things in neat little labeled boxes.

    Ultimately, I believe that the belief in God just serves to comfort us when we ask questions to which we may never know the answers. It`s all rationalization. It`s much easier to come to grips with death when you think that there was a meaning behind it. It`s the same reasoning behind conspiracy theories.

    But if you decide to quote the Bible and take things literally, don`t expect me to not call you out for cherrypicking the parts that serve your argument. In that case I better not catch you wearing any polyester blends. (Leviticus 19:19)
