Why Do You NOT Believe In God? - Page 5

why do u believe in evolution over creation? really, if u look at the facts, evolution has no more scientific proof than creation does. life is far too complex to hav developed from a few chemicals colliding. there r just as many scientific facts against evolution as there r for it.

Nonesense, you need only look at the fossil record for one. It clearly shows a gradual transformation of life over millions of years. Evolution is also confirmed by genetic tests which show how similar we are to our ape relatives, which is in accordance with the theory. Finally the genetic modifications which occur in each human generation is in complete accordance with evolution theory, and would cause darwinian style evolution to occur.

apes and humans similarities could simply be coincidences. after all, to a degree, every family group of animals has similarities. as to fossil records, they are scratchy at best. did u ever here about the fish that was a huge link in the evolutionary chain, but was thought to be extinct several thousand years ago, and was then discovered alive in deep sea fishing boats?

"apes and humans similarities could simply be coincidences."
Nonesense, the genetic similarity is something like 99 percent. With millions of genes the odds are incredibly small, like 1 chance in 10000000000000000000000000000.

"after all, to a degree, every family group of animals has similarities."
Yes, just like evolutionary theory predicts.

" as to fossil records, they are scratchy at best."
Nonesense, there are millions of thousands, thousands of prehistoric species. Dinosaurs, fish, reptiles in general, mammals, birds and amphibians all show a gradual transformation over time. Of course there are so-called "missing links", but only people who dont understand evolutionary theory. You see, between two groups, say between birds and dinosaurs, there is a quasi infinite amount of missing links in between. We can't find them all, fossilization is an extremely rare process only occuring in muddy ponds/lakes/seas. The only reason we have fossils is because out of the billions of lives, a few get lucky and turn into fossils we study.

" but was thought to be extinct several thousand years ago, and was then discovered alive in deep sea fishing boats?"
So? There are still thousands of species which do not exist today from ammonites to T-Rex.

There is no rational or scientific reason not to think evolution is true. There may be religous ones.

well there can be evolution and creation.. but secret what created god? we can ask that the same to you.. ii think its mower logicalk that everyithing was always here.. why do people insist on god so much??? becuase we want to for psychological reeasons (scared of the unkown, also want to go to heaeven and be happy for ever as happyness is our most want) evolution = you from human chain.. from whatveer animal.. from stardust etc.. planets burn out energy recyles in o nitrogen? to give birthnto other plkaets.. avtually do perople who believe in apes or monkeys as humans first also believe stardust created it? cause i thnk i only heard stardust crwated humans..

yo where you from dumbteen? which city.. every european city has a "clean train movement" for graffiti writers term.. fasination of painting trains commuters or subways.. its a real mission.. so kinda like hobby collecting photos of the stuff you manage to pull off.. London is one of the hardest city's (right now) to hit trains.. people do back jumps tho (hit the train when its parked at a station for shortwhikle rather than trying to get in the yards with infrared cameras, heat sensors, razor wires military securty etc.. (as also looking for terrosits) itsa crazy undergrounbd amonvemant... and is especially string all over europe (as oppsed to N.A) in terms of hitting trains.. i thnik copenhegan is in a cycle peak now where its more evednt (cause city short on monet now or something) apperently the ones in glasgow are impossibel.. have been tried though but efveryone who tried (3 people dieharsd) have been bustaed..)

Lots Of Luck, secret07.
That the bible (judeo-christian) states that all creatures were created from a common source so similarities in DNA would be expected.
As the molecules of the earth are combinations of a relatively few elements so life is based on a relatively few basic building blocks. Doesn't sound so strange, adaption in the struggle to survive is a necessary part of all life so species change as man changes, all part of GOD's plan or some coincidence?

In NA, we use trains to haul material for the most part, subways in major cities are more confined to mountainous areas along the northern atlantic coast, one of the factors of urban sprawl, cities build out, not up because of the lack of suitable bedrock. Also we tend to use automobiles & trucks so we see more grffitti on overpasses & buildings, things related to road usage.

Alright then, so my sense of justice came from evolution or it came from God if you believe in that sort of thing. Or both if you believe in both

That's what's shocking about belief in God. In means that if God decided that killing jews, torturing babies and raping virgins was a good thing, believers would start doing these things.

but dumbteen, though i cant speak for any other religion, in Christianity we follow what the Bible says. it is our guide to what is right and wrong. therefore, God wouldnt simply say to some random prophet, "kill all jews." and then we would do it, because it is against what his written word says.

That's not true, thank God for that. What was the biggest change in Western Morals? It was during the Enlightenment, IE 350 years ago, completely unrelated to any biblical change.

And besides, Jesus could change the Bible (or Torah was the equivalent). The Second Coming could show up and create a 3rd Testament, and Christians would obey it blindly whatever it said. Or what's more, what if Jesus had told you to sacrifice babies? Would you do it?

first of all, when Jesus comes for the second time, no third testament will be written because there will be no need for it. the earth will be purified and sin will be gone. no need for a code of rules when no one is going to break them.

clear me up as to the enlightenment u speak of. what does that hav to do with the Bible?

Its not the bible per se, its just the total idea of obeying to what God thinks is right. If God told you that slaughtering babies and raping virgins was good, you would be "moral" in obeying him!
