For a start, I don't believe in God. That doesn't imply that I believe in the big bang and such, though I think evolution is a very reasonable theory. I think Noyb's post put best pretty much how I feel about all this.
I don't have a problem with Christians expressing their beliefs, but saying no evolution is wrong it says in this book is what frustrates me.
Also lol at the vids .
Oh also, where on earth is Radix? I want to see this.

What and what not would be part of the bible was in fact decided by a COMMITTEE of early christians. But that's a different discussion.

Evolution has been observed in action on the microbial scale. An example: When you have a bacterial infection and take antibiotics, it kills off those bacteria that are vulnerable to the drug. Due to genetics and mutations (which occur much faster on a microbial scale, due to the much quicker rate of reproduction), some individual bacteria are more resistant to antibiotics than others. As the treatment continues, a greater percentage of the diminishing bacteria population is of the resistant mutants. That is why doctors tell patients to stay on an antibiotic regimen for a certain time. If the treatment stops early, then the regrowing colony will be predominantly antibiotic-resistant at a point where the body's own defenses would be not enough to quickly wipe out the bacteria.
The antibiotics applied an evolutionary pressure to the bacteria, killing out the non-resistant members. Bacteria can pass the gene for antibiotic resistance, gained through random mutation, to their offspring. Since the bacteria resistant to antibiotics are more likely to survive long enough to reproduce in the presence of antibiotics, the next generation of bacteria will have a greater number of antibiotic resistant bacteria. That's evolution.
- Ok, you must admit that was the most creative cussing this site have ever seen -
Hehe, there's not a lot of point here. Black may as well be white in these kind of threads, so I'm not going to sit here and disprove/question evolution any more. We believe what we believe really - if you believe we descend from apes then kk, I don't really care.
Personally I think it takes more faith to believe that we are all 'randomly created' and chance makes us what we are, than an almighty power (god) purposed all of this. But meh

All the Catholic folks I know believe in evolution and the big bang, the latter of which they say 'well what caused the big bang?'. Religion and beliefs aren't black and white and some folk are quite progressive with it all. I believe in evolution and the big bang and I'm an agnostic.
Phizzy, in case you haven't seen the videos still, the 'scientist' claims that because no external life force grows inside an unopened peanut butter jar, there's no way Evolution could exist. The second was just gay.
Fine Garbage since 2003.

I don't like it when people insult my intelligence Matt. I know IQ's don't prove a lot, nor really, do any qualifications. It doesn't show potential either. Just don't accuse me of being narrow/tiny minded?
