What I can't observe however is the origins of man which is what evolution is trying to explain, and I also have never heard of someone observing monkeys turning into people over the course of generations, or anything in between, so how can it be called a law? It's a theory with partially proveable segments to it.

Farsidedown, you fail epically.

My point was that many were arguing that evolution is fact (when it's only partially true...what I call adaptation to an environment you call full blown monkeys turning into people)

Evolution is both a theory AND a fact, you moron. Read a goddamn biology book for once.

Two last points I didn't catch.

"Also, you shouldn't provide evidence that is actually incomplete and not evidence, but hypothetical. I don't have a problem with faith on the whole. I just have a problem with people trying to pretend faith is science, and trying to prove science is wrong with faith."

I agree, it isn't a science, and I'm sorry if I ever made it appear that it was.

And @ catbarf:

Both nuclear science and gravity can be observed and laws explain them. That's fine.

What I can't observe however is the origins of man which is what evolution is trying to explain, and I also have never heard of someone observing monkeys turning into people over the course of generations, or anything in between, so how can it be called a law? It's a theory with partially proveable segments to it.

and finally Mornaf:

what did you expect? I didn't ask you to try to prove evolution to me and I have no problem with you believing it, yet you have a problem with me believin

Mornaf... he had a point. Concede the little wins, because it gives you more credibility in the end.

But when your proof against Christianity is evolution (a theory-not a law-it can't be entirely proven according to the scientific method) then I've got to make a point.

Farsidedown, that statement alone shows your ignorance of the scientific method. F*ck your asshattery.

But of course now it's broken down into kids going, "Yeah? Prove God exists!"...which is just stupid.

oh, sorry I don't see how perfectly intelligent it is to believe in an all-powerful being who can read minds.

Happy Valentines Farsidedown. I don't think your an unreasonable person. I can't keep anyone calm lol. And neither can you on that side of the fence, but I'm glad we waded through the poo for a while and ended up where we did. MUSHY MUSHY WORLD PEACE BLAH BLAH. Good night my friend.

Jaded. Your name says it all. I debate, because every single time without fail I learn something. I might not change minds or solve the worlds problems, but I always discover something I didn't know before.

"Jews suck!... well, I don't think any Jews died from my statement, so STFU, videogamer."

Actually, that statement probably reduced our size by at least half a percent. I should sue you for causing large, irreparable damage to my religion, you little Hitler youth.

Wow, all of you guys are going nuts. There's too many crazies to argue with all at once. My point was that many were arguing that evolution is fact (when it's only partially true...what I call adaptation to an environment you call full blown monkeys turning into people) You can believe it's true, I got no problem with that.

But when your proof against Christianity is evolution (a theory-not a law-it can't be entirely proven according to the scientific method) then I've got to make a point.

You don't see me going, "Evolution isn't true, because of creation!" I was only saying that you cannot concretely prove it, and thus was merely drawing parallels between both of our dilemnas.

But of course now it's broken down into kids going, "Yeah? Prove God exists!"...which is just stupid. Sorry BB, I was having fun (I really think it turned into a cool little debate and was good practice for me), but you've got to calm your people down. I'm done here.

That said t

On that note, we Jews should get added protection from similar libel, since a single, well-placed remark could spell the end of Judaism.

I just don't understand how that is more sane? Just because you don't understand it? I don't understand how god could create something from nothing. Tell me how he did it so I can see the more sane and understandable side this debate.

Also, you shouldn't provide evidence that is actually incomplete and not evidence, but hypothetical. I don't have a problem with faith on the whole. I just have a problem with people trying to pretend faith is science, and trying to prove science is wrong with faith.

Personally, I don't think Christians have the right to get offended by any statements against them. They're already the most influential religion in the world, and that's not going to change for at least another few centuries, so what's a few bad words?

On that note, we Jews should get added protection from similar libel, since a single, well-placed remark could spell the end of Judaism.

It's not hypocrisy. That which is already the most powerful does not deserve further protection.

"Wheres your evidence of a god?"

Where's your evidence that there isn't a God?

Ummmmm, welcome to the 21st Century, Farsidedown. That's not how the f*ck we advance. Thanks for holding us back.

"No it's not, that was dumb."

They are just as strong because they deal with different phenomena.

Fact: An observed event.

Law: Observation of a process. Laws describe facts and make predictions regarding them, but do not explain how or why the facts occur.

Theory: An explanation of a process. Theories can never become law, nor are they ever 'proven'. They can only be demonstrated to be accurate in a variety of circumstances and scenarios, and are ideas that have never been found wanting. If they are ever discarded, it will be because they are replaced with a more accurate model that yields the same results in the existing scenarios the older theory was used in.

Evolution, gravity, and nuclear theory are all theories accepted by the scientific community and supported with large volumes of evidence. Denying that speciation occurs is like denying that nuclear bombs function.

"Wheres your evidence of a god?"

Where's your evidence that there isn't a God?

I have faith, is that not enough for me?

Good god I was hoping you wouldn't use that.
not because it wins, but because that is just a stupid argument.
here,

I AM A GIANT FLYING TURTLE! I HAVE ADAPTED TO USE THIS CLEVER COMPUTER AND TYPE THIS!
Now, proof I'm not. I have faith I am, isn't that good enough?

now doesn't that just sound stupid?
The burden of proof does not rest on atheist shoulders.
it rests on you, and your religion.
until you find proof, I will continue to believe your god is fiction.

I have evidence that God may have gone and dropped a ton of water on us.

Sticking to this flood thing for a second- Weil is mostly publicised through the website "Green Prophet" which includes among it's affiliates The Alliance of Religions and Conservation, Green Zionist Alliance, and The Evangelical Ecologist. Not exactly what I would call an impartial scientific institution.

Besides, there are many more researchers that say the area flood of the Danube Delta which you speak of to be more like 2000km2, not "four times the size of Israel" as Weil (a philanthropist with no scientific qualifications whatsover) states. That's about half the size of Long Island, NY, hardly a global flood.

Put in perspective, the area of the flood you're referring to covered the light blue area in the top left of this pic:

I just think it sounds more sane than that we all spawned from atoms that randomly decided to form together into proteins and come alive.

Ahem. Obviously a perfect being who existed in his own pocket of reality made the universe and everyone in it.

The thing is, if this being is "perfect" why would he create the universe?
If something is perfect, it is at equilibrium: in other words, it needs nothing.
So why did god create the universe?
So why are humans, his most perfect creation, flawed by his standards?

"Actually, if you want to be technical about it, in the scientific world a theory is as solid as a law."

No it's not, that was dumb.

and BB...that was just a study done for the area, they were operating from a boat, so it's kind of hard for them to go on land and take the same samples, though like I said, similar deposits of sediment have been found all over the world.

In our system, the bible may have been written by men, but they were inspired by directly by God to write what they did. It may sound crazy but that's what I believe, and there's no proving or disproving it. I just think it sounds more sane than that we all spawned from atoms that randomly decided to form together into proteins and come alive.

"It's called the law of gravity not theory."

It is a law AND a theory, as is evolution. The law observes the process. The theory explains it. It's an observed fact that speciation occurs- the theory of evolution is the well-documented, uncontroversially-supported explanation of the process by which speciation occurs.
