Yes indeed, good point.

But my only concern with what you said is that seeing as though we are making new findings everyday that contradict other findings or poke holes in other findings, how can people accept an ever-changing theory system over a constant belief system?

Maybe if I wasn't raised Christian that argument would persuade me more.
A constant belief system is one where people just stick their fingers in their ears and go la la la la and try to hide behind a bible, with all the arrogance and ignorance that goes along with it, and on the other hand a system that changes with new found evidence is one that is rational and questioning, so how can you afford not go with an "ever-changing theory system" (overly vague term).

Wow, I am just impressed that you remember that VERY important part of science. Everyone forgets, isn't taught, or white-noises over the falsifying principle. I had a whole class on it one semester and soooooo many people don't know about it. - props


Tigga -

I actually understand what you are trying to say. Why is all this worthwhile, why not just go out and enjoy life in your own way.

This may not be for you, but it may be the way that many people enjoy life. I am a scientist not just because I like the money and am good at it, it makes me happy as well. It is my enjoyment to figure stuff out that we didn't know before. It is my passion in life.

It is my way of leaving a mark on society, by furthering our knowledge of ourself and leaving it better than it was when I got it.

All of Biology and Genetics and most of the other sciences are based on Evolution. Our understanding of it only furthers the rest of science. It is the foundation of life as we know and see it.





And by the way, Evolution is not based on circular reasoning.

Inbreeding problems? Come on.
According the the story, Adam and Eve had thousands of kids (God blessed them to do so).
If one brother had kids with his 1,103rd sister... Wouldn't that be like having kids with almost anyone today, because theory states everyone in the world is related by six people.

Plus, royal families used to inbreed.

I'm not promoting modern inbreeding.. just saying that it used to be common.

You can only split 92 chromosomes between the two parents to form the 46 for the child in so many ways. Your 1,103rd sister is just as closely related as your second.

True, so why don't evolutionists and atheists stop trying to take God's name out of our nation's own pledge, national anthem, and declaration of independence?

I understand that atheists dislike hearing it, and don't want their children to either, but for Christians it gives a sense of hope. Why take it away?

RELIGION IS NOT TRUE, but God didn't make religion. Religion was an invention of man after their downfall from God.

If religion is not true, but preaches God's word, then doesn't that make God's word untrue?

Why isn't my imaginary friend Johnny in the pledge, anthem, and declaration of independence? They get their imaginary friend named God in them, not fair!!

No.

That was a horrible argument.

If a teacher was an idiot, but the book she taught the class was full of facts, would it make the book stupid?

Because of the seperation of Church and State

The state should not support any religion as we have freedom of religion in America and requiring people to plege allegience to something under god shows preference for certain religions and beliefs over others.

Plus it is just silly.

The royal families have had many genetic problems as well as sexual ones because of the inbreeding. If you actually saw Royal Families under this practice without makeup you would see the results. They are one of the most common large mammal study groups for genetic diseases besides dogs.

And it is connected, not related by Six.
