    everyones opinions and ideas are very interesting. i like seeing stimulating conversations like this.... altho im seeing a reoccuring opinion here and its that the masses are being decieved by the powers that be.
    what makes any one persons answer correct? some claim that what we know is not what is really going on and that their explanation is the truth... however that is merely a matter of opinion and personal belief.... beliefs that are a variety of many beliefs being spread here.... one man cannot tell me that i am being decieved and that his answer is correct... how am i to know that its not the other way around?

    some offer what they call concrete evidence to back up there claims... but what makes evidence concrete? its all liquid....

    i was raised in a religious home with a christian / catholic upbringing. ive always been a spiritual person... then when i became older and thru out school i learned the story of evolution in my science classes... these things didnt cause me to question my faith, but only to explore it further.

    i guess my point im tryin to make is that no body knows the truth... nobody has a definite answer.. what is important to you is what you believe. be it right or wrong cause if u have faith in what you believe it wont matter.

    peace

    evolution IS NOT natural selection.

    the documents of history have shown us that,

    Well Evolution and Natural Selection aren't synonymous but Natural Selection is definitely a large faction of Evolution. lol What Documents of history?

    yeah your right. but if it wasnt for the evolution of their brain they wouldnt be able to adapt the same way or as well as they can now. the first animals didnt have the same brain power as they do now and thats thanks to evolution, sayin u believe in adaptation but not evolution is a little weird.

    witty lets go for metaphors and ancient writings.. just in the bible their is the jacob event, which is an newer version of what was in the book of the re born, then theirs the countless civilisations that have used, these same metaphors.. do u know of the Summarian Tablets.. ?

    the current day, it is not natural how we are evolving, taken chemicals in foods. drugs in foods.. designed to effect certians genotypes and blood types..
    that is far from natural.
    that is the current day way of doing it..

    their is much more. just check a few of my recent posts.

    I don't really know what you are trying to say with all of this.
    Natural Selection deals with the survival and furthur breeding of species that are best adapted to their surrounding area. if you are saying to me that this hasnt had a major hand in evolution, i'd have to say you are wrong.

    WOW!!!!!!!!!
    I guarantee I am the only one here who has done significant paleontological research of any form and I can safely say that the above statement sprouts from a complete misunderstanding of human evolution. Ive been reading books on paleontology and have been an aspiring evolutionary biologist since as long as I can remember, and I know evolution does not proceed as you think it does.

    Let me break it down:

    A. Man did not "grow" from an ape, or evolve from one if that is what you are implying. Darwin's theory states that we share a common ancestor with apes from which, both apes and humans evolved. Therefore, we definitely did not evolve directly from modern apes. Evolution is not a ladder, it is a tree and from the base at the common ancestor, both apes and humans follow different branches.

    B. Evolving from an organism certainly does not mean that the organism no longer exists!! We evolved from bacteria as did all of life, yet bacteria still exist. Bacteria evolve from bacteria, yet the earliest forms of bacteria exist side by side with more modern forms. The concept of isolation permits this, such that a population of mainland birds that occupies a new habitat becomes a new species, but the original species is no way eliminated in the process.

    C. No half apes half humans exist for the reasons stated above! We didnt evolve directly from apes, but instead share a common ancestor with apes. And note that if we did evolve from apes (which is untrue), then the half man half apes would no longer exist because it is a transitional form. One that marks the ascension into the occupation of a niche, but not the complete adaptation to that niche.

    An Ape never mutated into a human...An ape never turned into a human....no one is saying that.

    Evolution pound for pound is survival of the fittest and natural selection over millions and MILLIONS of years thus causing a change in the overall appearance and behavior of a species.

    It is not 'adaptation' or whatever you are talking about. The Wooly mammoth didnt just magically shed his fur to get use to african weather. thats not evolution...thats an ignorant argument.

    Sure Evolution is not an 100% fact yet, not many things are... but it has a TRILLION times more evidence than Creationism. And when I say a Trillion I mean infinite. throughout this whole argument Ronin and others have been shitting on you with facts and the best thing you can come up with is something like:

    "Creationism IS a fact"
    or
    "God DOES exist"

    thats not going to win you any arguments....Organized religion was created at a time when there was little scientific proof of anything. They didnt know what a tornado was or why diseases existed etc etc etc so they thought "fuck it....it must be god's work" and they scared the people into becoming little sheep. Do good and worship God, or you are going to hell. It all makes sense now.

    To deny the work of scientists from the past couple of centuries in favor of holy books written by man in aincent mesopotamia is a dictionary definition of sheer ignorance. the human species has gotten smarter throughout its existence, unfortunately religion has been dragged with us...I have no idea how people can still believe in this shit. We've flown in planes 30,000 feet in the sky....Where is heaven? Oh I guess its invisible. Why are there other planets...God didnt have shit to do on the "7th day" so he decided to get some creative work done. And how can i forget the "God works in mysterious ways" bullshit excuse...."Daddy, Why were there dinosaurs?" "well son, God works in mysterious Ways". What a bunch of crap.

    Peace to the knowledgable folks who have been debating for the past 18 pages....peace to all.
    Lol i had yet to see ANY evidence of the trillion pieces of evidenc you claim to have for evolution existing. My wooly mammoth argument holds up i didnt say they just shed it out of no where but they adapted and the fur let. Its adaptation NOT evolution
