Evolution....

Do you accept the theory of Evolution? I know a lot of people that don't and personally I am quite shocked especially since there is an abundance of proof for the theory of evolution, sounds the most plausible at describing the origins of man and is accepted as a fact in the scientific community. What is MTF's opinion on Evolution?

Re: Evolution....

The Earth is approximately 6000 years old. God created our world in 6 days. The seventh he rested up.
Worldwide accepted theory.

Re: Evolution....

Evolution is a fact. Anyone who doesn't agree is blinded by their religion and the fictions written in their holy books.

Re: Evolution....

Denying evolution is like denying the earth rotates around the sun.

Yet 46% of Americans don't believe it.

Re: Evolution....

and, we're still evolving and will continue to evolve. but our future evolution may be dependent more on our growing ability to change the world and less on how the world changes us.

or maybe you rather than not to then than to rather? is your rathering different?

Some people believe in God-driven evolution, but then you have nutjobs like Kirk Cameron

Re: Evolution....

Yes I accept it as a scientific fact and are appalled that there are people who don't. That's a huge problem, especially in the US where some school are actually teaching ID and creationism to show "the other possibility" while schools should be about science...

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Evolution....

Evolution is all about acceptance. Can you accept that humans evolved from apes? Can you accept that all life has evolved from simple single cell organisms and that there was no "magic" involved. Just millions and millions of years, mutation and survival of the fittest.

Some people refuse to accept that humans aren't special. That we have no special divine purpose and that the world and all in it wasn't created for us. That the entire human history is only a short parenthesis in the history of the planet...It's understandable because if one major thing is false in their belief system it likely means that everything could be false including eternal life and whatever "rewards" they expect.


It's more the fear of having their entire world rocked than that they are mentally retarded I would guess. Because at this stage you cannot deny evolution. Evidence is all over and even in your own body. So yeah it's a bit like saying the earth is flat or that the sun rotates around the earth. Still a flat-earth-society exists. So I mean it's not like we can expect creationists to disappear...

Good points, especially the bit about evolution being about acceptance. You can't say you "believe in evolution", you either accept a fact or you don't, but you can't believe in a fact like you believe in, say, ghosts.
