So, I apologize in advance for the following, but it was a comment from an article I was reading online about Evolution. Be warned it does contain racial slurs...but I just can't believe people actually think this way, it makes me sick...


Evolution Has No Credibility
Even Steven Hawkins says evolution is false. He prescribes to aliens dropping us off. the complexity of the human eye to the fact that no one knwos if a man or women eveolved first and what would be the odds of a man and woman evolving at teh same time to procreate? the only thing we have close to apes and chimpanzees FACTUALLY ARE NEGROES. Negroes have a closer DNA to apes than whites, negroes have thinner skulls than whites like apes and mnegoes have boens whites do not like apes. So are negroes the missing link? If negroes are the missing link than nothing could evolve becasue their intelligence is that of a gnat. Negroes wait around all day for a governemnt handout and free stuff so they would not have been able to survive. These are the only substantiated FACTS on EVOLUTION . There are no missing links and if you believe that spit arrived on an asteroid and humans crawled out of the ocean and then flew then started walking in two feet you are an ignorant public schooled educated retard. Creationism is supported actually more than evolution. The FOSSIL RECORD shows than MAN just showed up. there was no ape o man progression. If you want to see ape to man progression go to Detorit, Flint or saginaw or any negroe run city and see how they run things...INTO THE GROUND...

Personally I just don't see evolution and religion as being mutually exclusive. I absolutely think that evolution is established fact. Scientists may not understand every last facet of it yet, but the big picture has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt as far as I'm concerned. I think the bible should be taken symbolically not litterally. I think it attempts to show people how to live a virtuous life through symbolism. God works in mysterious ways. I think one of his ways could very well have been evolution.

I find it completely and totally impossible to believe in the bible as the word of god. The very idea is absurd to me. And if you are wondering, yes, I have read the entire bible, several times. I was searching to find something in it that would make me take it as the word of god. But alas, as I said, I found the idea to be delusional.

To me, there is no difference between believing that a virgin gave birth to god's son and that he was resurrected to walk among the living after his death and believing that you've got invisible spiders in your ear hair. I personally would be equally likely to call a psych consult for either. I can not see any way of proving that one person's beliefs about god are more correct or lucid than another person's beliefs about god. It is simply a matter of one's own perception. For someone like myself who does not follow the Christian faith, it is possible that we can see those 2 things as equally crazy.

I'm sure that you do feel that I am the delusional one, set to burn in hell for an eternity for my lack of faith. As I said, I am okay with that. I don't need others to agree with my beliefs to justify them for myself. I do not feel that I need to defend my beliefs, although I do wish to explain them. I would suggest that if you hold your faith as strongly as you claim, that nothing that I say or believe should be capable of offending you. You should know without a shadow of a doubt that I am the one who is less informed. Right?

But back to the original topic of discussion. Creationism can not be debated alongside evolution. Other scientific theories of existence can be debated in the same discussion, but trying to discuss faith and science together is like mixing oil & water. They aren't even in the same league.

I agree, Dana. I do appologise and I should have put it more clearly. I wasn't specific and didn't mean ALL christians and not just on DM. Basically, my nan is a christian, well she says she is, she goes to church everyday, reads the bible everyday but she only believes some of it, that doesn't make sense to me. In my previous posts I did not in any way intend to offend christians, this is just what I get told by A LOT of christians I know. Brittney, I was not trying to be offensive to you or your religion, you are entitled to your beliefs as am I and I hope I didn't disrespect you. My hubbys nan is a devout christian and she believes every word of the bible, I may not share her beliefs but she is quite honestly the sweetest, most caring person in the world and I love her to bits. It's the "halfway" christians I don't understand. Of course not everyone is perfect and we all stray off course at times but *I think* there is a difference between that and just choosing not to believe some of what god says. I hope I made myself clearer this time. :)

People who do not believe in god can not help but see people of faith as slightly delussional as we just see so much evidence to disprove the existence of god that to still believe then you are having to convince yourself of something despite everything that says other wise. Creationalist in particular are completley delusional as science has proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the world is older than 3000 years old or however young they think the world is. No science has not proved everything but I would much rather put my faith in the things that have been proven than believe in MAGIC - I'm not 7 anymore, I don't believe in santa or the tooth fairy either.

[deleted account]

Evolution is a theory.....it can't be proven is what I mean.

How do you know that "nobody" made atoms?? How can something just "be here" ?? There had to be a start somewhere, right? This is my point exactly we don't always have the answers but that doesn't mean something is true. I've never implied that science is a bunch of crap, I just believe that it will never figure out God b/c he's above science. He's what makes it all work.

I never felt more religious than the day I found out not everybody believes in evolution. I KNOW that it's true, I can't prove it to you; I don't know how to do carbon dating (or any other type for that matter); I don't know what each different type of fossilized bone means...but I KNOW that evolution did happen. It made me crazy that I could not make those people see reason...the truth!

Isn't that EXACTLY how people who believe in God feel?

[deleted account]

Gillian, I'm am srry I didn't reply. So let me tell you this, I don't have all the answers. I live by faith, not proof. That is where we differ. I believe that science could never prove that God flooded the world b/c he doesn't want us to have proof of what he did, he wants us to have FAITH :) Although it's a very old book, it's still very easy to get the same message it gave thousands of yrs ago. That God sent his only son to die for us so that we may have eternity w/ him :)

Brittney I find it interesting but not altogether surprising that you've not responded to my post directed at you after all I answered everyone of your questions and didn't really leave you with any arguments other than "faith".
Which highlights my point exactly - despite the overwelming evidence to the contrary people who really want to believe will ignore everything they don't agree with use a old book to try and justify their beliefs.

I have all the respect in the world for anyone who chooses to live their life with optimism, love and happiness, and respects my right to those things as well -- even if it is in different ways than they achieve those things !

I'm a good person. I try to be. And I expect everyone else to try too lol and if THAT is too hard or something that requires too much effort from them... all I can do is shake my head and move on !!

Thank you for understanding too !!! There aren't very many people who are believers in faith that even remotely try to be understanding of non-believers so when I read / meet someone who does... I more than appreciate it lol

[deleted account]

Jo - I think it saddens anyone who is a follower of Christ, when ppl don't believe in Jesus Christ. My duty as a child of God is to spead his word, and most of all his love :) But God also does not want us to be forceful, that's why he gave us our own "free will". That you for being understanding to my beliefs. You seem like a great person, and I wish you the best in life :)

I understand that completely Brittney, and that is exactly what I am doing too. I don't mean to offend anyone, but it's the way I live my life. And I have a lot more people who live by their faith coming up to me saying BELIEVE IN GOD, than I have ever seen or heard of people who live the same way I do, go up to anyone and say GOD DOESN'T EXIST. And I'm not talkin about debates or conversations -- I'm talking about unsolicited exclaimations of God's amazingness and their annoyance of my denial of their claims and their persistence that I should absolutely believe the way they do... or else!

[deleted account]

Jo I'm not offened, your all entitled to what you want to believe and if that suits you that's great. The things is, like I've said before I can't prove there is a God, I never will be able and neither will anyone else. That's why I live by faith, and I'm not saying that anyone has to believe what I do, I was just trying to tell you where I'm coming from.



Kati, I would never be apart of a church who held signs "saying they hated anyone" b/c I don't think God hates anyone :) There's crazy nuts on both sides of the fence. When you say lying isn't same as homosexuality, you are judging, that's the point I was trying to make. That of course we judge which sin is greater than another, when to God thinks they are all equal. He's the final judge

Brittney if there has to be a start somwhere who is to say that has to god - surely if something had to create the atom then something has to have created god - don't you think?
The thing is particles to come into being out of nowhere all the time science has proved this, so why shouldn't the universe have come from nowhere, it is after all just a collection of particles. That's much easier to believe in than some being that just appeared by magic!
And the great flood has been proven to just be a myth or story becsuse they can look through all the different layers of the earth and see what has happened through out the ages, they can see when there was an ice age or when a large volcano has exploded. There is no evidence that the world was once covered in water and everyone on it drowned. Maybe science hasn't proved everything but it it certainly a lot more accurate than some book written hundredes of years ago by men desperate to control the uneducated masses. And the reason science will never disprove the excistence of god is because you can never disprove the excistence of something that's not real. I could say I have a big pink rabbit living in my house that talks to me but it has magical powers meaning that no one else can see or here or touch it. No one could prove that I was wrong, they could only say that it defies the laws of nature for there to be such a creature - the same goes for god.

do you go to rally's against lying? lying is definitely not at the same level as homosexuality in the christian faith. do the crazies at the westboro baptist church have signs that say god hates liars? no, they have signs that say god hates fags. i'm definitely not comparing you to the nut cases of the westboro baptist church, i'm just using them as a parallel. why should someone who doesn't believe in god have to live by the standards set forth by someone elses faith? do you feel you should have to live under the islamic laws? how they treat women is just wonderful!!

i'm getting way off the original posts intentions so i'll leave it at this. and once again, i'm not here trying to bash you or your religion-i guess i'm just trying to make you see how what you believe shouldn't be what everyone else has to believe, and there definitely shouldn't be laws that are based off of the christian faith. sorry if you felt ganged up on, or badgered as it wasn't my intention. :)

I don't think God is above science. I don't think God exists. The whole idea of God is completely unbelievable to me. I can trust more in 'atoms just being there and that's it' and not knowing how they came to be trillions of years ago... than I can in any of the random stories that people speak about God.

It's the way my brain works, I prefer to rely on reality rather than just accept A LOT of stories that 'can not be proven or disproven' by anyone in anyway ever except to have faith. There's just too much that doesn't add up, soo I can't believe it's true. It really is that simple to me.

But if other people want to believe in it, fantastic, have a blast. Buuuuut don't put your stories in context to my life cause it's bogus to me and all that will do is end up pissin me off and you sinning, probably a lot, over something you could have avoided just by keeping your stories to yourself :P

That isn't directed at anyone in particular... lol

What do you mean "that's it"? I don't think you are understanding how science works and I don't mean that as a dig. Theory in science is not equated with "we don't know" or "maybe".



Brittney, nobody "made" atoms. I don't know how the first atom formed trillions of years ago and I'm ok with that. Science is an endless quest for answers. Just because every minute detail is not videotaped for peer review does not mean the whole discipline is bunk.

[deleted account]

Jenny , your right it's a "theory", thats it. Science has done great things, I'm not saying it hasen't. There is no evidence to back God up, that's why I live by faith through him :) I have a question though, who made atoms???

Evolution is not an opinion to be believed in or not. It is a scientific theory widely accepted by biologists. Do you "believe" in gravity? Do you accept gravity as naturally occuring? For me, I experience in my daily life that everything that happens on our planet behaves under natural laws. It is not limited to what "man" is capable of. Science covers a VAST range of subjects right down to how atoms behave. So it is just not possible for me to believe something "may" have occured outside of those laws because something that has no evidence to back it up (god) is "above science".

[deleted account]

sorry my sentence started to run together. I meant to use "man" in every sentence I was referring to men :)

[deleted account]

Carol, thank your for being polite w/ me even when you disagree :) Like I've said though..... I believe that God created the heavens and the earth regardless of how science says he didn't. I believe that God wrote the bible through his disciples, and what they wrote is very true, but thats only by my faith in Jesus Christ :)

I have a point to ponder on though in reference to your statement "But science has quite strongly refuted with enormous amounts of proof and hard evidence that many of the stories of the bible are nothing more than myths or fables". wouldn't science prove those stories false b/c they are just incapable by "man". Meaning men could never part the red sea, or men could never flood the earth. But we aren't talking about "man" and science can only prove what "man" can or cannot do, BUT NOT GOD. How could science ever prove that God didn't do those things. Science isn't even on the same level as God, he's above everything "man" knows through science.

Brittney, I think you are quite right. I seriously doubt that science will ever be able to prove whether god does or does not exist. But science has quite strongly refuted with enormous amounts of proof and hard evidence that many of the stories of the bible are nothing more than myths or fables. For example it is impossible to argue, aside from just simply believing it to be so, that god created the earth in 6 days about 6000 years ago. I am not saying that there is not a god that is responsible for the creation of the earth, but there is clear proof that it did not happen as stated in the bible. I am very open to the idea that god(s) is responsible for everything in our universe, but we KNOW that it did not happen according to the writings of some men 2000-3000 years ago. And yes, science has not proven or informed us of how existence came to be. But we know more about it than those guys when they were writing out the bible.

[deleted account]

So basically your judging sin. Your saying "of course molesting a child is worse" regardless of religion your judging, right?? Yes God sees all sin the same, but I'm not God nor is anyone else. Our sinful human nature allows us to judge one sin over the other.....how is that picking and choosing??? I acknowlege the fact that all sins are equal. I'm not picking and choosing what to follow.

Lying could never be illegal, we have free will, just like gay ppl can be gay. There are no laws saying someone can't be gay. God gave us all free will. But that doesn't mean I have to agree w/ gay marriage. Sin is never ok, that's why we have to ask for forgiveness. If your gay you obviously don't think its wrong, right?? So you aren't asking for forgiveness, right?? God will forgive them just as any other sinner, but they have to go away from that sin, just as liars do, or adulters. For example.....if someone is having premarital sex and is proclaiming that be a homosexual is wrong. Then I agree that is hypocritical, b/c they are living in continual sin as well. B/c it's a act that is usually happening on a continual basis, wouldn't you agree? All sinners are deserving of God's love, but its not on our terms, it's on God's terms.

And I don't think murderer should be allowed to marry and I would contest that as well. And I'm not saying that homosexual's hurt anyone, I just don't want to raise my kids thinking its ok to be gay or that is't ok lie, steal, cheat, etc....... I have a family member who is homosexual, and I love him to death. He's a great, great person, but I do not accept his lifestyle, that doesn't mean I don't love him. Just like when my children lie, it doesn't mean I don't love them, I just disapprove of the sin.

i agree that molesting a child is much worse than lying, but not because god says it is- because it completely affects that persons life for the rest of their life, a lie doesn't affect someone the way that molesting them does.

my point with the last sentence is that in the christian faith god sees all sins the same, so in the christian faith all the sins we're talking about (including lying, and premarital sex, and homosexuality etc) should be made illegal, but no christian i know wants lying to be made illegal. god doesn't do things that way, he doesn't think molesting a child is worse than lying-it's all equal. to use the excuse that "well, we're sinners, and that's why we pick and choose" doesn't go over well with me (or with god for that matter). so you can sin, and that's okay as long as you acknowledge it, but a homosexual can sin, but it's not okay? how is that equal? how is a homosexual ANY different, and undeserving of god? why can a murderer be allowed to marry, but not a homosexual? who is a homosexual hurting?

i'm talking in circles, and don't know if i'm making much sense, lol!! i'm truly not here to bash your religion, i just want to understand how you think sometimes. like i said before i understand how faith works, as i had it once. but as soon as i realized that i was picking and choosing which sins were worse (i never understood why homosexuality was a sin, i personally thought lying was worse than loving someone of the same sex) i realized i wasn't cut out to be a christian. how could i question the "ungodliness" of homosexuality, but still believe that god thinks that being homosexual is a sin. i couldn't live the farce any longer.

[deleted account]

Kati - I don't support either and I believe God will judge equally on all sins. I'm not quite following your last sentence???

My question is why do we execute murders, but not adulters, liars, homosexuals??? Is it b/c you think they deserve punishment?? If your thinking that, then your not keeping sin equal. It's all sin, right? I think thats the same scenerio your giving w/ liars/homosexuals. I think all humans think one sin is greater than another (not that its right). For example...a child molester vs. liar, we all know that in our human minds we think a child molester is worse, right?? We wouldn't be human if we didn't think that way. We were born sinners of course we judge certain things in life.

i completely understand faith, as i had it once. that's why i chose to ignore all of the things that were questionable in the bible. faith overrides everything when you are a christian and i completely understand that being there once myself for over 25 years. but science, and the bible, proves that the whole situation with cain and abel could've never happened.

and the thing with the halfway christians-those who pick and choose. everybody i know is a halfway christian. my grandfather is the kindest, closest to sinfree man you will ever come across. i know of no sin this man has ever committed. HOWEVER, he believes gay people shouldn't be allowed to marry since it says being homosexual is a sin in the bible. so why doesn't he think liars shouldn't be allowed to marry, or why doesn't he think lying should be illegal? i agree with your way of thinking that the only thing that matters should be your relationship with god, but if you think that god will judge you for supporting lying, but not homoseuxality, in my opinion you are mistaken.

No need to apologize I just wanted to point out that not all Christians are high and mighty. :)

[deleted account]

Lisamarie, I am by no means offended by what you said. No need to apologize, you seem like a really nice person:) All I can say is .....I can see where your frustration is coming from. I too know ppl who go to church, and don't apply God's word to everyday life. Like doing the motions, but not walking the talk. I myself believe the WHOLE bible, though I may not like certain areas, I still believe I should live by the whole bible, and I try. But like I said, I sin. I too, have seen christians put themselves on pedastools, and I think its wrong (but God's the judge of that). I actually think they turn ppl away from what matters, and that's God. To me, it's not about the title "christian", what you do for a living, how much money you give the church, who your friends are. The ONLY thing that matters is a relationship w/ CHRIST, nothing more!!! I guess ppl just need to be understanding to the point that, even though some may call themselves christians, doesn't mean they are one. I don't know I can only speak for myself and I know I'm nothing more than anyone else. I'm just like any other women, but my faith is through Jesus Christ !!!! What would "faith" be if we had proof??? Then we wouldn't need faith, and thats what I think God wants us to have.



Kati- I don't know who had sex with who to lead to all of "us". I don't know how it happened. There is NO proof, that's why I said I live by faith through Jesus. As funny as that might sound to ppl, I don't need proof that there is a GOD. I know there is a GOD, and he wants nothing more than to have a relationship w/ each one of us:) Ppl will try to figure creation out for many more decades to come, and they will never know what really happened. Science will never prove there isn't a GOD !!! Science will come up w/ theories but never proof !!

In my p[ersonal opinion and from my own experiences christians put themselves on pedastool's. I'm a bit confused, so you'll have to forgive me if this makes no sense. To me, picking and choosing which parts of the bible to beleive in means you don't have very much faith. I don't think anyone intentionally "sins" we all make errors of judgement but to actually intentially not believing something in the bible when you believe everything else in there is not a "sin" it's specifically stating your opinion of what you believe. (hope that made sense, LOL)
And yes, I have had a fair few so called christians who have said they choose what to believe out of the bible and still call themselves christians, especially on COM.
As I said, I don't believe in the bible but I have faith, in myself. If there is something in the bible that I believe I will live by it, I do not cheat, I tell the occassional lie, I don't "sin" I do bad things that I shouldn't but no "sin".

i can almost subscribe to the whole god created the universe, jesus came from a virgin stuff-because all that stuff is "explained" in the bible. but where did people come from after cain and abel? did they have sex with their mother to procreate more humans? if not, where did the other woman come from to have sex with to make more people? where did all the other people come into play that were there at the same time as cain and abel? how did they get there? all this stuff is never explained, and i cannot find myself believing in something that is either incestuous or completely false.
part of me wants to say you are delusional (those who believe), but i was there once, and i don't feel i was delusional. i feel i just had faith. faith is a very powerful thing-it superceeds (sp?) anything else, even science, because that's what faith is. i don't think that if my child were desperately ill, in a coma or something, and all the worlds medical technology said that my child would never recover, that i would be delusional for believing that my child would recover. i may be wrong, but not delusional (at least in my opinion. :)

[deleted account]

Lisamarie.....I can see what your talking about in regards to christians choosing the things they like out of the bible. But God didn't make christians perfect either. I sin, we all sin regardless of what faith we are. Me not following something in the bible but following another thing, is my sinful nature. I think that non-believers put us up on some petastool and think we are some kind of angels.......well we aren't !!!! We will never be perfect until we meet our maker.



Also I think science is a great thing, but I won't take science's word over GOD's word, b/c I think he created the heavens and the earth.

Lisamarie I so agree with you - I have often wondered how christians decide which parts of the bible to belive and follow when so much of the bible is contradictory to other parts. And also why some parts of science like medicine and engineering can be trusted but not things like evolution or how the universe is formed.

I believe in something, maybe not God per se but something, I don't know how the world began and to be honest, I don't really care, it has never been something that interested me.
I do not believe a word of the bible. I am a creative writer and I could have written that although in a more explanatory way! Anyone can come up with a wonderful story about this amazing guy in the sky that inpregnated a virgin and killed his son and we're all saved. I am not trying to put down any christians at all but what annoys me is when they pick and choose which parts of the bible to live by, if you believe in the bible, believe it all or what's the point?
I believe in science because most of it is based on fact! There are no facts in the bible.
I'm also a bit confused as to whether christians choose to only believe certain parts of science too? I mean, without science we wouldn't get very far. Anyways, that's just my opinion.

you are entitled to ur viewpoints..they are like buttholes, everyone has them and some of them stink...but that's not what offended me, you calling us delusional is what offended me...but hey some people have to put others down because it makes them feel smarter or more informed, so by all means...make yourself feel good..and now i am being likened to a man who said he has spiders in his ears, well guess what" if he was my patient and told me that i would be having him put in for a psych consult myself, Everyone that says God told them something is not correct and God doesn't speak through spiders in an ear that i know of, and i have never read anywhere he favors those with beards, so THAT was a delusion...My belief in God is my belief and I just thought that in COM were above calling people crazy and delusional for them, I could say that your delusional to believe that your science can save u...who is against the exploration of knowledge, im taking classes i dont even need because I am all for expanding your knowledge base, I just know that what's in a science book won't save me...

You are welcome to if you feel that way. I would not take offense. I am glad that your faith gives you solace in this sort of debate, and as I said, I do not state my opinion specifically in order to offend you, but to stand up for my own beliefs. I may fundamentally disagree with you and nothing will alter my opinion that total faith in the bible is a delusion, but I will always defend your right to hold your own beliefs.

It's ok Carol.....God told us(meaning those who choose to follow him) through the bible that we'd have ppl laugh in our faces b/c we believe in him. I'm ok w/ that, but I had to take my stand for him in a forum not in his favor. I honestly can't fathum how anyone coudn't believe in God, but I'm not going to call you delusional.

Yep, that is exactly what I believe. I see it as exactly the same as a client I once had who told me that he did not shave ever because the invisible spiders living in his ear hair told him that god favored those with beards. You may find my opinion to be not to your liking, but I am as entitled to express it as you are to express yours. I can understand that you hold your faith so deeply that you see my viewpoint as offensive, and I honestly do not state my opinion in order to offend. But as you feel you must speak "the truth" as you see it, I feel the same for my beliefs. And I will defend science and the exploration of knowledge from all who speak against it.

so your saying that because we believe in God and that he created the world, we are delusional......I just want to be correct about this....Because if that is what you are saying i think that is incredibly rude and condescending of you. If you choose not to believe then that is on you, I am not running around calling you and others that believe in evolution any names, to each it's own, but I do have faith, i beleive he created the world in 7 days and that he sent his son to die on the cross for our sins, I believe it because i have faith, This post wasn't even going where you are taking it. Here is where i take comfort, it is in the fact that if i am wrong....i have lost nothing, if you are wrong..different story...now that i have resisted the urge to cuss and call names because i am still striving.....and a sinner..i will get off this post before i lose that battle and spend the rest of the night asking the Lord to forgive my loss of control since i have come so far noone wold ever believe me....

Well, there's reality and provable facts, and then there's delusion. You can dwell wherever you choose. I personally like to stand up for the former.

Oh... I understand Tah :) I can understand where your coming from in regards to his tasteless comments that writer made. I just seen alot of rude remarks toward ppl who believe in creationism, and I couldn't let it go on. B/c I feel it's my duty as a follower of God to stand up for him, even when it cost me everything !!!

I absolutely believe that God created the heavens and the earth..i have faith and that's how i know, i was just dealing solely with the comments in this crazy and sad rant....People have their theories and beliefs, I have my faith and it works for me...

I agree that the article is not worthy of being read !!!

BUT I have to stand up for creationism b/c I do believe that God sent his only son to save us and that we were created in his image. So don't bash ppl like me or the Duggars who believe so. You are entiled to NOT believe in creationism, but that doesn't make you "right" either. The fact is NO one can prove anything, science tries but can't. We don't have all the answers!!! So who does??? I believe we don't know the answers b/c God wants us to have faith in him and not ourselves, or science or anyone else. But I can't prove anything, I live only by FAITH !!!

What confuses me is.....why is everyone so quick to bash creationism over evolution?? When you can't prove either. Just like some say, their is no proof there is a God, well there isn't any proof that there isn't a God.

disgusting !

Although we could argue that the author of the offending quote is the missing link considering their spelling is much closer to that of an ape .
