That's hilarious, calling atheists apes. Evolution is true because the only alternative, creationism, is a complete load of bull. "I believe god created me in one day!" Well, looks like he rushed when he made you, pal.

If you find it hilarious calling atheist, apes; then you'll die laughing at the atheist that claim they are not related to apes in this post. Many atheist have posted on the no side to this debate.

That IS funny. That doesn't mean my point doesn't stand, though. I'm not even atheist. We're all apes, just with fancy suits and better clubs.

I haven't disputed humans being apes. Of course they are, and posting on the other side doesn't mean that I think to the contrary the debate asked that if humans being apes was proof of evolution, it isn't, it is just a taxonomic fact.

Side: yes

You do realize that most evolutionists are Christians, right? Evolution isn't just an atheist thing, as you like to present it.

No, Evolution is the best and most accurate explanation of natural phenomena because the science overwhelmingly supports it. The accuracy of evolution has nothing to do with the inaccuracy of Creationism. That would be a false dichotomy.

Side: No

Scientists in the last half-decade have practically made evolution into a scientific law by finding the missing link in the fossil record that connects two bisecting family trees of primates.

They named the fossil link 'Ida' after the daughter of the scientist that discovered her, and her skeletons show a species of primate that connects bisecting point in the lemur primate family tree with the family tree of rhesus monkeys.

Side: yes

Atheist should look to you for wisdom, because many of them dispute what they claim is true (evolution). They say mankind came from apes and then deny it.

At least many atheist are good for laughs, if not good for anything else.

If you want proof God exist, ask a devoted atheist.

Side: yes

Why thank you. The reason I can argue like this and not be insulted by the banter is that I'm not an atheist. I believe in the power of science, but I am actually a Pantheist. All men are apes, and all that exists composes what you would call 'God'.

Anybody can be good for laughs when you troll all over their feelings with teasing jokes.

Don't you mean 'a God exists'? Or did you mean 'God exists'? Either way, I am a grammar Nazi. :)

If you actually knew what you were talking about you would know that atheists and evolution do not claim that humans are apes. Evolution shows that we once shared a common ancestor with the apes and monkeys! People who do not understand evolution are the ones that makes claims that it states humans are apes! Humans whether atheists or not are Animals and primates at that but not apes.

Sir, you have clearly not read the Holy Scriptures of The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

As it says In The Beginning, Verse 27:

"So The Flying Spaghetti Monster created man in his own image, in the image of The Flying Spaghetti Monster he created him; angel-hair and macaroni he created them."

All men are made in the image of The FSM, even if they are not believers in the truth of The FSM's existence.

It's amazing that idiots actually voted up your pathetic dribble. All the evidence points to an Earth that is 4.5 billion years old, not 6000. All the evidence points to a slow evolution of life via natural selection. Next time you get sick and require antibiotics (that are developed on the premise that evolution is correct), rather than take them, why don't you pray to your god instead and see what happens?

What about women?? So only men are made of the image of god, not women? Then how did women come to being, what is their image? Don't say that "man" means to both genders because that would mean God is a hermaphrodite and a hermaphrodite is definitely not the image of a man. Why is god male anyway? In the bible, Jesus even calls God a father. Aaaand, why does it say in the bible that women have no power over a man and that they have to be silent and obedient. Why did they make Adam the goody two shoes and Eve the sinner and transgressor? The bible is clearly saying that women are a lesser being to men! It says that god made the universe from nothing, but made Adam out of dirt and yet we are actually made up of water, oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, sodium, magnesium, Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Molybdenum, Fluorine, Chlorine, Iodine, Manganese, Cobalt, Iron, Lithium, Strontium, Aluminum, Silicon, Lead, Vanadium, Arsenic and Bromine--- and that Eve was made from the rib of Adam. Why couldn't god make Adam and Eve out of nothing, like he did with the universe? And why does god say that it's okay to have slaves??? READ THIS:

"However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way." (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

Oh My! God has been a very naughty person lately, with all those slaves...

Seriously, Christians, do you really believe God is all good and nice? If you hate slavery (Not to mention sexism), then you will hate this verse in the bible but uh-oh, the bible happens to be the word of God, so if you hate slavery then You.Would.Deny.The.WORD.OF.GOD!!! Ooooooohh Snaaaaaap. The bible also contains instructions of how to handle slaves, and that you can beat them and also instructs when to rape a female slave O:

The bible was written by men, for men, in a male dominated society! Are you not yet convinced????

The basis of Christianity is of the bible and of god, but since the bible and god is NOT good even though they are said to be good and are said to be the cause of creation, it is called a lie. So there, the foundation Christianity just got broken.

I don't think you can paint all atheists or all believers with one brush... In fact, around here, many of the atheists and believers actually have a lot in common.

Side: No

Just because theist and atheist like bananas, you think we have something in common. I don't see it.

No, it doesn't, we are all atheists to some degree, and we are all apes, it doesn't invalidate the theory or not though.

By the way Baboons aren't apes either.

Nice to see that since I've been away you've matured and discovered some new ways of being a fool.

Yes, this is true. Baboons are monkeys, and humans are great apes.

Nice to have you on the side of creation.

How exactly?

You hardly "yanked my chain" I was pointing out that you're one dimensional and have nothing else to contribute other than atheist bashing.

I have heard this debate one too many times. I am Buddhist, and I have learned that you should believe whatever you want to believe. Mankind will not make it anywhere with petty fights over this and that. So what if god made you. So what if your related to apes. Their both ancient history and we should move on.

"Geology shows that fossils are of different ages. Paleontology shows

a fossil sequence, the list of species representing changes through

time. Taxonomy shows biological relationships among species. Evolution

is the explanation that threads it all together. Creationism is the

practice of squeeezing one's eyes shut and wailing 'does not'!"

There is nothing else that needs said when an atheist such as yourself and a propaganda machine for evolution, post on the side that says no to evolution. No to the idea that atheists are apes.

Those that finance your endeavor, clearly need a refund. My eyes are wide open.

I'd look closely at the facts before you call some one ignorant. My objective was not to win a debate, but start one. My second objective was to draw in suckers to post comments. The third objective was to liven up the place, I've seen corpses at a funeral with more life then this place has been lately.

Baboons are not apes, make up your mind.

Atheism != Evolution.

Atheism does not state that people are apes, nor does evolution. According to evolution via natural selection, humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor.

Also, atheists are not a different species, they are a group of rational people. You mad bro?

Was your point of this debate just to push people into corners so that you'd have nothing left to do but talk down to them? It is clearly illogical. One does not equal the other regardless of either being true (evolution) or false (atheists are apes). Try better to yank our chains next time

Side: yes
Thewayitis(4063) Disputed

Evolution is based on the theory that humans evolved from the same parent as apes evolved from, so how is it that it one can be true and the other false? It cannot. Both have to be true, unless you believe in something different than evolution.

By the way I managed to sucker you into posting. Did it hurt when your chain got yanked?

Side: No
