this person has obviously never heard of plate tectonics... or erosion... or how fossils form... or geology in that matter and btw we evolved from monkeys, our closest relative is the bonobo monkey, not ape but i respect his beliefs i just wish he would lay off the smart people... i mean scientists

ok so the thing is your wrong just wrong the only point u got completely correct u religious intolerant asswipe is that evolution is not a proved science and is only a theory. normally i dont comment however u pissed me off i will only rant on one issue because it is controversial. to say Africanus(sp) did not walk upright is ridiculous they lived in high grass savannah they only reason they survived is because they could stand. it is fact however that they did not always walk upright and as a casual stance would retain ape like walking positions. they were also still partially arboreal they needed to stay in trees for shelter. ur ignorant creationism is a retarded philosophy it makes no sense. basic example dinosaurs

@ davymid - Thanks.

About the pic: I'm actually not sure if it's shopped. It's commonly called "Serious Cat" because of the look on its face. If you go on Google Images you can find pics with captions like "I are Serious Cat." There's also a demotivator that says "Serious Cat: He's drating serious."

^^ Mjustin,

Agree with your points, well made. Happiest days of my life were back when I believed in Santa.

But off topic, is that cat in your pic photoshopped? Because if not it's the ugliest c*nting animal I was ever unfortunate enough to have laid eyes on.

@ pinkie05 - It doesn't matter what makes you happy. Some of us actually care whether our beliefs are true. If reality turns out to be incredibly depressing, too bad; your feelings have no bearing on the truth.

@ mhmm1876 -
1) Yes and no. The universe developing exactly this way was mostly chance. Evolution happening exactly as it did was partly chance (due to random mutations). Evolution happening at all, however, is inevitable (i.e. not chance).
2) It wasn't an explosion like you're thinking of. It was a rapid expansion of space and matter. Also, the Big Bang didn't initially create everything you see today. The universe was originally just a lot of radiation and subatomic particles. Atoms (mostly hydrogen) formed after about 380,000 years.
3) Sort of. We share a common ancestor with today's phytoplankton, which might have just been another type of phytoplankton.
4) Yes.
5) How does morbidity make a theory less valid, and how is it counter-factual?

Please: Google next time.

ValeX > nice argument. I haven't thought of it that way before. I hope you read this at some point and know about my support.

Wow.
So, we are all here by sheer chance.
We got here by an explosion that gave us air, atoms, water, and other matter.
We came from phytoplankton which, doesn't even breathe, much less think or walk.
We all die on this miserable planet and become the fertilizer for the earth.
What a twisted thought process that is not only incredibly morbid, but also counterfactual.
Ask your little brother what happens when something explodes and even he can verify that it will not produce a tree.

And yes, an all-powerful and all-knowing ANYTHING is impossible. To know everything means you know the events of the future. And the be all-powerful means you can change anything. You cannot change events to which you know, however, because that leaves a paradox of the knowing of the change. (this also, by the way, simultaneously destroys the idea of free will)

And if there is no free will, god plays a cruel joke with eternal damnation, does he not? If he knows before you're even conceived that you will sin and go to hell, what free will do you have?

Not to mention the irony of the idea that we were created in gods image. If I build a desk, and it breaks.. Do I blame the desk? No, I blame myself, the creator. How could a god judge a design in which he himself made. If we give in to our weaknesses of sin, and go to hell, it can only be attributed to the designer for not making us strong enough to go against it.

I mean, do people even logically think in what they believe?

I agree with the poster above. To think he's a 13-17 year old male amazes me, however!

He's right, though. History has shown that the 'you believe what you want and I'll believe what I want' idea just doesn't work. It's one of the foundations of most modern religions, 'push your view on others'. I'm not saying that there are not open minded christians that mind their own business, but religion still tends to be a driving force behind political agendas.

Dragonlord, here's why that will never work. As long as people believe eternal salvation is at stake for them and their loved ones, they are going to do some pretty batpoo crazy things to get it. Like try to have creationism taught in schools, or keep gay marriage illegal, or blow up Jews, or not vote for an atheist because they think he lacks moral guidance from a divine power. So we're all dragged into it whether we like it or not. If it didn't affect me and others, I wouldn't bother. There is too much at stake to ignore fundamentalist religion. And religious people believe there is too much at stake to ignore atheists.

To supplement what ValeX said, the gaps in the fossil record indicate no flaw in the theory: since the conditions under which fossils are formed are quite rare, there are probably thousands of species that have gone extinct without leaving behind a single fossil. We will never find evidence that they even existed. But the fossils we DO have point towards evolution, since progressively moderner species are found in higher strata, and they are never found in the same strata as their evolutionary ancestors.

Well we all know that an all powerful or perfect being is impossible because of various paradoxes, so we can pretty much rule that one out, lathyris.

It's fairly naive to argue against evolution. Evolution is purely statistics. It's a number game, and simulations can easily be set up for evolution.

The only arguable (and slight at that) topic is if we evolved from a lower lifeform. Again, I find it somewhat naive to know that evolution works, see proof along the line that we have evolved from another species, and yet try to argue that it's just coincidence, and that some 'creator' made us instead.

Lastly, any 'gap' in evolution is NOT evidence for creation, as this author states. Richard Dawkins lays it out nicely in 'the god delusion'. Just because a scientific theory has 'gaps', doesn't disprove the theory at all. And it CERTAINLY doesn't support an alternate theory. Science is built on building blocks, and there WILL be gaps in ANY theory. Science is a process to fill in those gaps.

It is a logical fallacy to interpret a gap in a theory as a supporting argument for a completely unrelated theory such as creationism.

I didn't read the other messages, but this video is simply rubbish.

First off, neo-darwanist weren't the first to add the 'mutation', darwin added that himself in origin of the species.

Secondly, mutations are not always destructive. Mutations in a HIGHLY EVOLVED creature are usually destructive due to the fact that the creature is already highly evolved. There are not many creatures in this world that are not highly evolved, so we don't see a positive mutation very often.

However, evolution begins very rapidly, because at such a low evolutionary stage, almost every mutation is a positive one.

Also, I would argue that even if one in a million mutations were positive, evolution would still work perfectly. The 999,999 would not survive as well as the status quo, and the 1 would survive better, meaning evolution still works.

I think I have the solution to all of our problems here. The end-all for this ridiculous debate. Here it is:

Everybody shut the fück up and go worship your gods (or lack thereof) in your own spare time. And for fück's sake, don't drag everybody else into it.
