Postby Bentrada » Thu Aug 01, 2013 7:14 am

Its pretty much proven but, do you believe in Evolution? Or do you believe humans never evolved from filthy monkey men?

I don't need to believe in evolution I've seen scientific evidence that it exists. I believe that the evidence I've seen came from respectable sources.

evolution does not require faith. only honest observation. not even "faith in science". you can breed fruit flys and even flowers and vegetables.

as for "monkeys", science doesn't even say monkeys. they happen to be in the same phyla (if that's the right term, or kingdom or something like that) as ourselves. but so are lemers. doesn't mean we evolved FROM them, but in parallel.

(besides, judging by the way humans act, i still believe we evolved from pigs. vicious wart hogs perhaps, but still pigs)

Almost all evidence points to it, and it's not incompatible with Christianity if you accept that the Old Testament stories are symbolic and not meant to be taken literally.

Absolutely, since it's the most well-supported and fundamental scientific theory to ever be formulated. Not believing it would be equal to believing the Earth is flat or the sun is Helios in his flaming chariot.

God creating us and evolution from proto-apes are not two imcompatible things.

But you think the mods will lock this thread, and they will, so why bother? You're only going to get opinions until a mod notices this thread. If you had actually put some effort into your OP the thread would stay open an last a hundred pages.

Of course we didn't evolve from apes, if we did evolve (which I'm not saying we did) we would have evolved from an ancestral primate.

apes have nothing to do with it, and god was too busy. fanatics have no idea of the scale of the universe. that's why god created evolution to automate the process.
