Why is there a 'vs' in the forum?
Why is it always one or the other? I've searched your forums and found very little open minded conjecture regarding the possiblity that there may be correlations between things.
Why do Christians (especially Christians) argue against evolution? Why do atheists so often argue against creation? The fact of the matter, the only thing that we DO know - is that we don't know. None of us. We all believe. What we choose to believe in hits a point of departure at some linear mark as if it could be measured quantitatively rather than in it's true qualitative nature.
Science, for all of it's logic and glory, has yet to prove a single thing anywhere in the known universe. Hell, even me saying "the only thing we know" is less than accurate. Not only do I not know everyone on earth, but I don't know whether or not there are other intelligent, aware beings either here or on other planets or in other dimensions.
Christianity, is a sad, sad deprature from a way of living that used to unify people when they were still jews. Yeah, I said it. Christians are lazy Jews. Jews... 613 rules. Christians, 10. Lazy, lazy bastards.
The point of this post, however, after my ranting, is that it doesn't ALWAYS have to be a "vs" issue with one right and one wrong. Everything being equal, interpretation is the key.
God scoops up some dust. POOF Adam. Can't that for one momnent be interpreted as :
God scoops up some elements on a beach in a perfect environment that is conducive to sustainable life.
God Created the earth as such so as to produce storms with ionic clouds, hence lightning.
God has lightning hit dust, life is born, microbes swim around in shallow seas, evolve over billions of years and then one day man is on the scene.
Sure, that's not as quick as saying *POOF*, but why can't it be like that? Can someone point it out to me?
In the bible, people seemed to live an extraordinarily long time. Is it because they were super-long-living people? Or because the concept of time was not only different then, but is still arguably imperfect.
Personally, there's no way I would buy into the Christian God. Such a sadistic and egotistical bastard. Technically, none of you are arguing anything more than an opinion that has as of yet not been disproved. I'm going to have to side with the Atheists, because their arguments are based on logic and common sense. Probably why I'm an atheist. Anyway, can someone tell me why these things cannot coincide in such a manner?
Life is not easy. If it were, everyone would be doing it. On the other hand, you have 5 more fingers. However, if you look at the bright side of things, you might go blind.
