My specialist subject!  How I love religion - can anyone explain the missing link?  I mean a few posters seem to be a little, how shall we call it, "slow" but this is surely not evidence that man turned from Ape into God's glorious creation that sits here and types.

I mean where is apeman when you need him?  All this evolution stuff is poppycock.  7 days it took, to create the heavens and the earth - all else is heresy and should and will be punishable by eternal damnation.

Read the Bible, the earth is the centre and the heavens travel around it.  Anyone thinking otherwise is a heathen dolt.


Well, there isn't one. Whew, that was hard.

Does anyone know how rare it is for a fossile to form. Especially around something that is on the planet for as short of a time as an intermediate species
You can't outrun death forever
But you can sure make the old bastard work for it.

I meant there isn't a link that is missing. Not that we didn't evolve.

Has anyone ever pondered the co-existence of "God" and Dawin's Theory of Evolution?

Keep in mind, when I say God, I do not mean the white-bearded man from The Bible, but rather, that unexplainable(in my opinion) underlying force that gives us life.

Note: I do not claim to be an expert in these fields, just a very interested and motivated Anthropology and Philosophy student.

So back to the point, I have been studying evolution and natural selection for a couple years now and it really is a wonderful theory. I hope all of you critics understand the workings behind it so I will not explain it. (Even though I doubt I can do it justice)

My question is, what do you think of the possibility that the universe/world/organisms or whatever, were created by some force and then natural selection took place and evolution occurred?

This is something I find absolutely fascinating. While I am very much into science, and do believe in the Big-Bang theory, there is something that has always bothered me. How did life itself begin. When did things go from inorganic to organic, and HOW?

Hope this starts up a good, CLEAN discussion. I am new to this site and enjoying the debates. Hope to hear all of your opinions.

One Love.

This debate has been over for centuries, you Christfags just won't accept it.

Fix'd.
Then why are there still more christians?
Because we remain a poorly evolved mammalian species. Our prefrontal lobes are too small. Our adrenaline glands are too big. Our thumb-finger opposition isn't all that it might be. And we're afraid of the dark and we're afraid to die and so we believe in the myths of "holy books" which are so stupid and so fabricated that a child can see through them.

True story, that.
Here's an explanation for ya. Lurk moar. Every single point you brought up has been posted, reposted, debated and debunked. There is a search function on this forum, and it is very easy to use.

Things were always organic. Organic material is abundant throughout the universe, and there would have been plenty of it all over the Earth at the time life started. There have been a couple threads detailing the exact method it probably took, feel free to search or wait a few minutes and someone else will write it up for you. I just finished an all nighter and it would come out as near jibberish if i tried at the moment. Sorry I'm not of much help right now.

I don't think that counts as an even. The catholic church has been one of the most forward religions in the areas of evolution, and the universe.

It is trolling actually. You've never seen god, you have no idea wha "he" looks like, yet you assume he has no white beard. I was a practicing catholic for 14 years and even I never made assumptions about the look of god. You are the one who is retarded kingman, fuck you.

And you were wrong. Ergo, everything you've ever said is wrong and god has a beard. Another win for Guessed.

That's not even a little true.  You're not even trying anymore. Ya know, it used to be fun to troll you. You've officially failed at failing.

The last pic I saw of you was with those two friends and the cliche hand signal when you were drunk. You didn't have a beard.
