"plindboe = blindpoe
I call rubbish."
What the? I submitted the quote to fstdt, speakout is the creationist who made the silly line.
My username is simply an abbreviation of my name.
speakout might be a Poe, but he have made more than 400 posts with that kinda stuff, so if he's faking he's pretty persistent.

I've never heard Hindus claim one could become reincarnated into some new animal that didn't previously exist.

Not really in the same way, though... Like... At all...

Well, I reckon if there were a mass conversion to Hinduism because of evolution, fewer people would object to it. What most people don't like is atheism. People are, rather patronisingly, happy to have people believe in a god they do not believe in, but believing in none at all is unacceptable. I have always thought that Hinduism is a religion (along with buddhism and taoism) that seems most compatible with evolution - the Hindu cosmology even stretches the age of the universe into the trillions of years - a little too far of course, but better than 600 years.

You'll break your legs making leaps like that.

the Good Witch
is there a 'reincarnation does not work that way' image?
1/30/2008 3:34:57 AM
That's an intresting one.

yeah... really we can all see this connection of reincarnation and evolution... *shake head*

Since you understand neither of the two, I will take them as a NO.

Of course, Darwin was a Hindu when he came up with his theory. As we all know, being a regular member of a Protestant church is a Hindu practice.
And evolution has nothing to do with observed changes over time, alterations in allele frequencies, mutations or adaptations.
Except, y'know, within the bounds of REALITY.
EDIT: Okay, when the other CFers tell you that you're full of shit, it's time to throw in the towel.

My ancestors, the ancient Celts, the ancient Greeks and well as the Hindus, believed in reincarnation. And if you are of European descent, yours porbably did too.
1/30/2008 3:22:26 PM
So nobody had ever made any mention of "species changing form" prior to the introduction of the Hindu brand of reincarnation?
I guess all those Israelite sheepherders who selectively bred sheep for higher wool production were all secretly Hindus in disguise.

Where the hell did that come from.
Reincarnation != Evolution
1/31/2008 8:30:07 PM
typical.. a christian saying evolution is an immediate transformation from one species to another. can you people really come up with nothing better in your defense than ignorance. you know no atheist has EVER said a monkey gave birth to a human. so stop acting like that is where we say we're from

No, but at least Hindus don't think the universe is only 6k years old.
Dr. Carl Sagan, (1934-1996) famous astrophysicist.
o The Hindu religion is the only one of the world's great faiths dedicated to the idea that the Cosmos itself undergoes an immense, indeed an infinite, number of deaths and rebirths. It is the only religion in which the time scales correspond, to those of modern scientific cosmology. Its cycles run from our ordinary day and night to a day and night of Brahma, 8.64 billion years long. Longer than the age of the Earth or the Sun and about half the time since the Big Bang. And there are much longer time scales still.
o The most elegant and sublime of these is a representation of the creation of the universe at the beginning of each cosmic cycle, a motif known as the cosmic dance of Lord Shiva. The god, called in this manifestation Nataraja, the Dance King. In the upper right hand is a drum whose sound is the sound of creation. In the upper left hand is a tongue of flame, a reminder that the universe, now newly created, with billions of years from now will be utterly destroyed.
o A millennium before Europeans were willing to divest themselves of the Biblical idea that the world was a few thousand years old, the Mayans were thinking of millions and the Hindus billions.

And nevertheless, Darwin was the son of a minister. Please, do a little research on both Hinduism and science.

The dharmic cycle states that a man's actions and deeds are rewarded in his next life. A swell fella will be reborn as a prince, a right bloody ass will come back as a dog's rectal flea. Their bodies have not changes, which IS WHAT EVOLUTION IS!!!--but their souls have been put into new containers.
Seriously, it's the Internet, people. This information is just lying there if you're just willing to look for it. It isn't hard, either.
