I am not trying to harass creationists, and certainly not trying to call people out or discriminate...

But is there really anyone out there that does not in their heart of hearts know that evolution is real? Even Intelligent design people- don't you just know its real? Ca't we all just admit it and get over the hump...

I mean, what are trilobites? Dinosaur bones? carbon dating? Hybrid species?

Science is in no way perfect, but is it more fun to have a world full of magic and sorcery, or the wonders of dinosaurs - reality, and planets that aren't flat?

I like magick, mystery and sorcery. I like the unknown, that tingle of fear and anticipation. I like frightening myself as I walk through a forest at night, imagining all kinds of monsters following me.

I like supernatural, paranormal, greys and UFOs, Big Foot and Nessie.

Without these things in life, it would be a sterile, boring grey place. But, of course, I have never grown up.

I agree! We need to discuss the evolution of beer. No-one seems interested in discussing what I originally posted as a reply to the OP.
06/15/2007 04:55:16 PM · #16
I guess since you started this thread, the other brazillion discussions of it on this site weren't involved, or detailed, enough?

Sorry, the rules say add to the topic or don't post at all. This threads only been up a few minutes, and the first two posts (at least) did speak directly to the topic, so I have to say that your threadjacking is considerably premature to be considered justified, even if it were allowed at all.

Read my first posting! Is that threadjacking?? It was an answer to the OP. Or, can I only agree with what was said in first post?

I'm not picking on you for starting the threadjack, but I can't see why you'd object/persist when I said that -- while it was fun to dream of beer -- the thread had gone far enough astray, and let's try and get back on topic.
06/15/2007 05:09:10 PM · #20
Okay, I won't discuss the topic. I'll move aside so the masses can post. I see the queue is growing as I type.

ok... i'll bite...

no. i do not "know" in my heart of hearts that evolution is real. i'm fairly certain, in my brain of brains that it didn't happen at all...

of course, i'm assuming you're talking about macro evolution... micro evolution? sure... it can happen. but macro? nah. 6000 years ain't nearly long enough to see a new species form by random chance.

I think evolution is real, i think its ongoing, at all times. But that does not mean there isn't a higher power out there.
06/15/2007 05:15:17 PM · #23
6000 years? Where did that come from? Don't tell me you think the Earth is only 6000 years old.

Also...it is not "random chance". The DNA "evolves" over millions of years. A fish did not one day give birth to a "fish with lungs and legs".

They are supposedly tricks put there by god to tempt divergence from our faith. I however, have never believed in any religion or higher power, so evolution just seems to be the obvious answer.
