God and christianity

Darwin and evolution

I'm an atheist, but darwin + evolution have nothing to do with the formation of the earth, so I'm going with God here. Sorry, but your argument kinda sucks, please choose good options next time.

Side: give me a break

Totally agree with the formation comment.

well considering in darwins book on origins of species he says himself that evolution only works in a relitive time and as such some higher power being must of started it. so i'm not saying god wins but darwin wouldn't agree with evolution himself so the otherside has already lost.

(no those are not his exact words just rufly translated)

Have you read On The Origin of Species? I certainly have, and it doesn't say anything of the sort.

Darwin's theory doesn't explain why the earth is here. That would be like... the big bang.

So the better theory? God.. I guess.

Has anyone who has posted a position on this question read C. Darwin's' book, "The origin of species"? For not even C. Darwin asserted the origin of species. He only presupposed the derivation of species and not the origin of a species. He infers from species to species not cause/origin of the genus of a species.

Which is the better theory of the earth? The theory of evolution or its' counterpart presume man has the ability to understand a thing that he cannot duplicate or test or predict.

So, theories are the fruit of people guessing for funding or religion and never the fruit of a identifiable, testable law.

How can you not agree, sure, you can say no, and walk away and be damned to hell forever, yes, FOREVER. Imagine getting up for the rest of the afterlife just doing the Devil's chores. Anyway, back on topic, What is the proof Darwin, some random person, made a theory and it becomes a fact, Theories are not real most of the time, the Bible dates back way longer than Darwin, thats all you need to win this argument. I am going to sit back and watch the down votes pour, so I can laugh at the stupid mistakes of people choosing the Devil to die too, Have fun In HELL.

Of course it's Darwin and evolution and not some absolute god that shape our Earth and universe in 7-days.

Some christians say there must be a creator to create all these universe and stuff but who creates the creator ? And who creates the creator of the creator ?

And they will argue Our god creates time so he isn't involved in that process.

Does this make sense at all ? NO :D

Side: Darwin and evolution

I would not pick either one of these but I'm forced to in order to state what I consider the best theory of the Earth, namely that it is round, not flat.

Darwin was an amazing guy. I watched this National Geographic documentary over the weekend. Check is out below:

he was amazing. although, if you read some of his work, he thought a lot like Hitler (The Descent of Man).

No he didn't. He certainly discussed the possibility of eugenics based on his theories, but dismissed them as evil.

"The surgeon may harden himself whilst performing an operation, for he knows that he is acting for the good of his patient; but if we were intentionally to neglect the weak and helpless, it could only be for a contingent benefit, with an overwhelming present evil... We must therefore bear the undoubtedly bad effects of the weak surviving and propagating their kind."

He also implied that society itself does indeed deal with the weakest of the species. Comparing the realisation of what his theory could imply with the genocide of millions is false, and that is mostly likely why you were voted down (I wasn't the one who voted down, by the way, as I strive to always give a reason for my down votes).

I would still go for the stupid evolution theory about survival of the fittest and mutation of specie overtime. But I am still having a hard time dealing with Darwinism concept. Primates to men still has a huge void connecting to it and could be possible that there could be no link actually.

You can't really deny evolution, but there are Christians who believe in evolution. Even the Catholic church has official accepted evolution as the means of creation (although to disputable extents). Moreover, Darwin's book is on the Origin of Species, not the Origin of Life. I'd be most inclined to go to an extreme and side with Carl Sagan, but even that has room for God and religion, including several forms of Christianity.

If you consider Christianity a theory (which it's not, it's a guess), then evolution is fact (which it is). How someone can still consider christianity even a choice is a joke, it's 2010, grown up you morons, evolution is a proven fact. It's like someone denying 1+1=2...you can still argue it's 3, you're just a stupid faggot if you do.

Side: Darwin and evolution

Darwin's theory of evolution is easily the more logical explanation. Think about it. Either we evolved, like all of the other creatures on the planet, from apes, or "God" plopped two normal folks on Earth and they had an enormous amount of children for the good of mankind. Come on.

Side: Darwin and evolution

Yes, I also believe that it is a more logical concept. But I'd like to believe to the concept that we evolved from man, a primitive man if that's how you put it, to a modern man that we are today. And because we are fit, intelligent and oozing with awesomeness even before, we have survived the mutation process, evolve over time and using dragon voice recognition software is now arguing on this debate. Ape to man? There's a huge missing link. Come to think of it. After 100 years --evolution, mutation and time occurs-- would you believe that all those smart primates will be an arse kicking human by that time? I don't think so.
