My mind... the idiocy of this has just blown it...michael87cn said:I agree with your dad personally. I mean, if everything just randomly evolved, why is everything but humanity so perfect? We're supposedly more intelligent too. It all simply fits with Biblical records much more than man-devised theories.Macrobstar said:So I got into an argument with my dad today. He says that there is way more evidence for intelligent design than for evolution, and that evolution is "just a theory" and has "minimal evidence"
I tried explaining to him, about fossils and genetics but he wouldn't listen
So escapees, most convincing evidence for evolution?
PS: I also tried "Every noteworthy scientist believes in evolution" he just said, no.
Religion is bad, but the Bible isn't in my opinion. Many people don't seem to understand that you can believe in God in different ways than assembling in a building and believing what every random guy teaches.
That also said, I simply don't trust people enough to believe that they know the truth. I don't believe in the 'potential for humanity' to be superior to everything else, much to disagree with Gene Roddenberry (might have spelled his name wrong lol). People are flawed, egotistical beings that have to explain away everything and prove to themselves that they are the masters of whatever they wish. But time and time again... we learn how wrong we are and that we are NOT superior and that we do NOT have everything correct or explained. Decade after decade passes and what was 'fact' becomes 'fiction'. We have no more 'figured out' anything than our ancestors have, comparing the years 1012 to 2012. We are just as much in the dark as they. But much like they we think we are 'modern' 'civilized' and most sadly 'superior'. The truth is we are not.
Science simply put, is just another religion that many subscribe to because it's the popular thing to do, not to mention the publicized thing taught in schools. There is a better way out there to live ones life than to say "Man is its own god".
Seriously, you show very little understanding of Darwinian theory, science and indeed, reality. It shows such incredible lunacy to suggest that because humans have misunderstood the world in the past, nothing can ever be considered true, despite over-whelming evidence, and yet you still think that a book that says that there was light before the stars, plants before the sun and an arc capable of holding 2-7 of every species of animal on earth makes more sense than Darwinian evolution, an idea that has in essence been indisputably proven. I genuinely advise that you actually read up on both the scientific method and the historicity of the Bible before you decide to discuss it again, or perhaps just hold your tongue next time.
