Tigger: You don't tell them a, b or c.You tell them F.
slayer199: Is there any way to speak to a true believer to get them to open their mind? Offhand, I can't think of one... so moron fits.
KrispyKritter: i am entertained by educated people who cannot discern between fact and theory. you God haters can piss on the bible all you want but hey, you weren't there, it's all man-made shiat (theory) you are insisting is a big brick wall of truth and fact. grow up. scientific theories are proven wrong every year.
Happy Hours: DNRTFA but teachers should explain that this is our best theory and while we cannot prove it as an absolute certainty there is a hell of a lot more evidence for it that anything else including creationism.You are now free to go to church on Sunday.
0z79: BTW, re-read some of these posts, people here have all but called me an idiot.
walkingtall: For 140 years evoluiion theory stated in every textbook in the world that life evolved from some kind of organic soup.

RussianPooper: It's more like saying you don't believe in gravity because it doesn't explain the origin of matter. They aren't completely unrelated.
kid_icarus: Evolution and faith can be compatible, as long as faith is willing to abandon literal interpretations of scripture.Therein lies the main problem, IMHO. Evolution is only incompatible with religion when you insist on interpreting the bible literally. (Which hardly any Christian sect actually does, btw...I don't care what they tell you.) This is only a wedge issue for political reasons. Christians are easier to herd and manage when they feel threatened and embattled over some moral panic crisis.
RussianPooper: It's not all that hard to understand, hardly mind-boggling. The 6000 year thing is kind of a fringe, but still, you don't get to choose who raises you and where you grow up, so you are at the mercy of the information that is provided to you. And let's not act as if there aren't societal pressures in regards to belief as well that can keep people from bothering to question, at least for a while, and an evolutionary tendency to trust your family and the people in your group. There are people who believe the earth is old and that evolution exists within small parameters, but still believe god created everything and that species don't evolve into different species. They're unfortunately close to the majority, in fact, so I'm guessing not all your 349 classmates all believed as you expect.
bikerbob59: So, why aren't apes still evolving into humans?
DAD 20165: I'm not saying it's not fact but it seems to me if people were confident in evolution it would be the laws of evolution not still a theory.Science and religion are not opposed science is just too young to understand. I heard this quote somewhere and I believe it will eventually be a truism
poorjon: "Even when bolstered by modern genetics, evolutionary theory does not explain why life emerged on Earth more than 3 billion years ago, or whether life was highly probable, even inevitable, or a once in a universe fluke."It pisses me the hell off when people bring this up. Evolutionary theory does not even attempt to explain the origins of life. That is not why the theory was developed. Its like saying that you don't believe in gravity because it doesn't explain how pop-rocks work.
