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
You haven't dis proven anything.
In fact it looks to me like you have a 'I'm so clever i don't even need to waste my time proving people wrong' attitude.
You need some substance to your arguments otherwise you will look like a fool.
Hmm, the old "refute the purpose of arguing because your own argument is weak" defence, good spot Andy.
"Personally I think it takes more faith to believe that we are all 'randomly created" - who said anything about random? In fact, evolution is no dispute of Godly origin, only Christian Godly origin (i hate dat cristyan godli orrigin). Something could have made life, but it's my belief (and should be yours) that life has evolved and continues to evolve.
For example, it's a known fact that the majority of African Americans have intolerance to cow's milk. Europeans on the other hand (I don't know bout no Asians) have no such intolerance - this is due to evolution. Europeans evolved to tolerate cow's milk because it was a vital food-source.
Also, human skin colour evolves too. Why else do you think black people are black (well, brown) and white people are white (well, peach)? And do they stop being these colours when they live in hotter or colder places? No - they have evolved and carry the genes of their fore-fathers, who had good skin colour for the area they lived in.
"so I'm not going to sit here and disprove/question evolution any more"
*going to disprove
*or question any more
Right, *Mario voice* "Here we gooo!"
What annoys me is people that haven't even read the bible, let alone understand any of it, tell others about what they think is basically in it and what it says, and then discard it as any historical, physical and literal evidence that it contains. It's all part of that 'dont know, dont care' attitude. To me, evolution stands for ignorance. I'm going to say a large percentage of people here haven't read the bible and/or understand what it says and explains - and that large percentage go with the flow and believe in the evolution theory. Those are the people that haven't researched both sides of the story to draw a fair comparison or decide for themselves - that's what bugs me really. I could choose to believe evolution, but to me it just doesn't make any sense whatsoever, so to me it just remains an idea, as it basically... still is! It is still just a theory, it hasn't been proven although people like to think so. It's not a fact! The way people explain that it is a fact is by explaining the theory behind it, as for evidence, there is none.
And for the people that have actually researched and studied and looked in to both sides of the story here with an open mind in both cases and still decide to believe in evolution - then that's up to them! As it is up to me, too.
At the end of the day, it's down to what you choose to believe. That comes down to opinion, and since one's opinion cannot be wrong (reasonably speaking) then what's the point? I'm not going to continue because I'm not going to convince anyone here of being in the wrong, nor are they ever going to convince me. It's just the way it goes.
I'm a very open minded person, I once considered evolution - but chose not to believe it for many long and strenuous reasons as to which determine my views on life. I don't want to sit here typing out essays of stuff trying to show people why evolution is a load of complete crap, as I have better things to do. As I'm sure you all probably have better things to do than sit and read it anyways!
So what's the point? That's what I'm saying Andy. Let us strangers stop having a dig at eachother about what to believe when it's up to every individuals' choice based on what they choose to believe is factual.
Although it's an interesting topic and everyone is entitled to their own opinion - I'm going to lock this thread now simply because it's turning into an argument rather than a discussion. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and everything.
