Which do you believe in?
Oh boy... here we go again. I believe in a combination of the two.
Yeah, I know. But I didn't see a thread that actually addressed this exact question. I realize now that I should have done a poll.
Like God created evolution?
Interesting, I have an earth science teacher who believes in Creationism, which greatly suprised me.
This thread may be a good place for such comments. It is part two of a long discussion of the OP topic.
The theory of evolution was created.
The story of creation evolved.
Quoted for truth.
I think my opinion on the matter is already evident.
Is it possible to know the truth? Will we ever?
I like the idea "The only thing that we can be sure about is that we can't be sure about anything."
Now, obviously, this is an oxymoron in and of it's self. But I like to take it a step further. If we can't be sure about anything, how we can know we can't be suer about being sure? Maybe someday we will learn it's evolution or God. Do we have the capability?
Finding absolute truth IMHO is a waste of time. The best thing to do is create models of reality that incoperate many details of our universe in a coherant and useful system. This is known as science. Evolution is a vastly superior model of reality than Creationism.
The jury's still out...but they already said that creationism just didn't happen.
What jury are you refering to?
But it is a waste of time to try to find absolute truth? Who's to say we can't?
I believe in evolution myself. However, religion has had such a large following in the face of so many contradictions. Sure, it may be just man's way of trying to define their existance, but, what if it is? What if God created us, and that's just how it is? Maybe we are allowed to question these ideas as a purpose?
Yes. And we do know it. We just fail to realize it.
Science rests on certain assumptions. They're certainly logical and acceptable assumptions, but they're assumptions nontheless.
Then that's how it is.
However, there's little rational reason to think that that's the way it is.
Could one say that failure to realize the truth means it doesn't exactly exist? I don't agree with that, but I know one point of view believes it. For instance, if it is evolution, but people do not accept it or realize it, is it the truth to them, since they choose to omit it from their lives?
I think the truth is truth, but I do know someone who believes that statement.
Ironic, how so many of sciences main theories, property's, and inventions, were considered irrational at the time of there conception.
Scientists will always be fine-tuning theories.
All I was getting at was that the theory of evolution is pretty gosh-darn good, and the explanation of creationism is not.
One could say that. But it wouldn't carry much meaning to me.
