henkaman:
We actually use 100% of our brains. The 5% to 10% thing is an old myth that was dubunked years ago...a simple google search will help you figure that out.

It's not about want, it's about need. To survive our ancestors needed to think and build tools and be able to manipulate them. That was enough. If in our evolutionary history, there was a time that our ancestors needed to be able to fly, maybe we would have evolved to have wings. But most likely we would have become extinct, because I'm pretty sure there it nothing in our ancestor's genetic make-up that would allow us to have evolved with wings.
Also, we didn't evolve from monkeys, we evolved from a common ancestor, in answer to the question.

I have another thought; man has ALWAYS wanted to fly. But we have not even the smallest pair of initial wings? Instead, we use our brain to build aeroplanes. A brain with a capacity we only use to about 5-10%. Why did we evolve this huge brain, when we don't use it? And why doesn't all men have gigantic...well, you know. We all want to have that? (haha no, not everybody, but you get my point, maybe) ;)

Everyone just shut up! Nobody cares! Quit forcing your point of view on everyone! It's just plain rediculus.

Okay, I don't even believe in such wide scale evolution myself, but at least I know the theory behind it which is half of what a person needs to refute something. You can't just believe that what you believe is right you need to believe that what others believe is wrong in order to have a strong opinion. According to evolutionists, humans didn't evolve from monkeys, both monkeys and humans evolved from a common species that is currently extinct. That species existed relatively close to us, therefore chimps and humans didn't have much time to become biologicaly diverse. We are different by about two percent but are similar because we had a common ancestor more recent than that of Humans and, say lizards. That's not my oppinion though that is theirs.

Just further evidence that Crossroads Church are ignorant. Is fancylad being a troll or just plain unintelligent?

Bacteria need Food, Acidity, Temperature, Time, Oxygen, and Moisture to grow. They do not grow all on their own. Petri dishes have growth medium in them otherwise the bacteria would die.

??? Every living organism, without exception, needs those things to grow.
Humans need every single thing you just listed, otherwise they die. Does that mean humans can't reproduce on their own?


This is seriously one of the most ridiculous objections I've EVER seen.

1. We didnt evolve from monkeys we evolved from the great apes. Monkeys have exactly nothing to do with our ancestry. Get it right ffs.

2. The apes that are around today evolved as we did. Think of them as our siblings rather than our parents, the common ancestor that we shared died out a long time ago. They wouldn't ask these questions if they developed a basic understanding of the theory they are criticising. F**ktards.

Lol, zantrua, too funny. I guess we didn't evolve from the europeans, we devolved.

This is the same as saying "If Americans came from Europe, why are there still Europeans?"

People like this need to watched that Skewed views of Science video that was posted on here ages ago. If you don't fully understand a scientific theory, then you have no basis on which to build an argument and it is likely your prejudices against the theory are based on internal bias rather than external fact. We may all change our bias freely, what we may not do is change or alter fact, all we can do is try our best to uncover what things are and are not facts in the correct way. If you haven't seen the video, watch it, make your friends watch it and pass it onto any f.ucktard fundamental christian who tries to question a well evidenced documented theory by debunking it with a statement that has absolutely no relevance to that theory. Christianity served.

People didn't evolve from monkey's, no one ever said we came from monkey's, Humans and Apes have a COMMON ANCESTOR, meaning some semi-caveman dude had a retarded hairy baby, and a not so retarded not so hairy baby and it went from there

Also viruses can switch back to previous forms, H1N1 flu had existed before and only recently came back. That's not evolution.


Why not?

Besides, H1N1 does not specify the virus. It specifies the *type* of virus. There are different strains of H1N1. The fact that a strain of H1N1 existed in the past does not mean that a strain of H1N1 in the present is the same strain.

We evolved from neanderthals which are ape-like in appearance but are just humans from the stone age that were really hairy and didn't walk erect (by erect I mean they didn't walk upright like us. I know what some of you were thinking ;)


Wrong in several ways.

i) We did not evolve from neanderthals. It was originally thought possible that we did, but the neanderthal genome has been sequenced and it's not a close enough match. They're a different branch of the homo tree, a different evolution from a common ancestor.

ii) They walked erect. Chances are that they were at least fairly intelligent, given that their brains were larger than ours.

It's likely that they were very hairy, though. It would have been useful in Europe in an ice age.

No that's adaptation, There is a difference.


That begs another question, perhaps one that should have been asked much earlier.

You obviously aren't using words with their usual meanings, so this question is key:

What do you think the word 'evolution' means?

JJdagdelen: Most of what you see there are mock ups built from small bone chips. Everything before 'Homo sapiens' are apes.


To clarify:

What do you mean by "apes"? A serious question - the word is not clearly defined and you make your own definitions of many words on this subject anyway.

Are you claiming that humans are the first and only species of the homo genus?

Would it say a lot about his faith or about him as a person? To assume his views reflect the faith he chooses to follow is just as ignorant of a generalization and puts you in the same boat. Enjoy.


You are assuming that his faith is the faith of everyone who believes in the same religion.

I'm not. Any person's faith is their own.

You're criticising me on the basis of *your* assumption. That is not reasonable.
