Evolution and reincarnation have nothing to do with each other. Strike 1.

And most evolutionists are cowards and don't like a real debate with a knowledgable scholar of creationism.

Either that, or they've figured out by now what a waste of time it it. Strike 2.

As for all creation stories being taught is not necessary our society doesn't have everyone of every religion in it. Should we teaching the ancient Greek view of creation. Any ancient Greeks out there?

How about Hindus? There was an article in this morning's paper about the demand for Hindu priests in my area. Strike three; you're out.

Morbo if you please.

"a knowledgable scholar of creationism."

Haha, one of the biggest oxymorons I have ever heard.

How can one forget something that was never real in the first place? You forget things you once knew; not things you never knew.

I wonder who the real cowards are. Scientists who have years of evidence, study, research to back them up or "scholars of creationism" who have nothing but a 2000 year old book with no known author and their faith in centuries of brainwashing.

Using your logic, why should we be teaching the ancient Hebrew myth of creation? Any ancient Hebrews out there?

What a crock of shit. Don't you realize that you are consigning your soul to eternal damnation, according to your own belief system, by telling such lies?

Do you even know the definitions of the words you are using? The word "atheist" literally means "without god(s)," and the word "pantheist" means "the belief in and worship of all or many deities." The two words are diametrically opposed...complete opposites.

There is no such thing as a "scholar of creationism," knowledgable or otherwise because there is no proof of the validity of creationism, while there is substantial evidence to support the theory of evolution. It's not the evolutionists who run away from the debates, you know, or make up outrageous possibilities to explain away things that the bible doesn't cover.

Maybe there aren't any ancient Greeks around, but how about Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Native Americans, Shintos, Wiccans, and other people who are not Christian? If you are going to teach, in the public schools, the Christian version of the beginning and population of the Earth, then to be just you must teach the creation stories of every belief system represented by the student body. But that teaching doesn't belong in a science class because creation stories...including the Christian one...are most properly taught in a mythology class.

Tell me, John...are you home schooled? Because you don't seem to know much about critical thinking, reasoning, or even definitions of ordinary English words.

The reason that most evolutionists don't like a real debate with a knowledgable scholar of creationism is probably the same reason that most evolutionists don't like a real debate with the easter bunny. They don't exist.

Actually, the "ancient Greek view of creation" is taught in many American high schools, usually during the Greek mythology component of a literature class. As such, I'd have no problem with the teaching of Biblical selections, as mythology, in a literature course. Rightly or wrongly, both Greek and Judeo-Christian mythology have severely influenced Western literature, to the point where they're necessary for a deep understanding of it.

So an amoeba that lived a very good life was reincarnated as a multicellular organism? What religion teaches that?

And most evolutionists are cowards and don't like a real debate with a knowledgable scholar of creationism.
No they're just tired of the bullshit. You seem to take, "I can't take this insanity anymore" as a form of defeat.

As for all creation stories being taught is not necessary our society doesn't have everyone of every religion in it. Should we teaching the ancient Greek view of creation. Any ancient Greeks out there?
Yes we should. What about Hindu's, Buddhists, Natives, and Pastafarians? Science should be in the science class, religion in religious studies or church.

Evolution and reincarnation have exactly one thing in common, the TION at the end of the words. Invest in a dictionary and actually look up the words before you post, it might actually convince people that you have some intelligence(not much judging from the other nonsense in your post). There is just as much scientific proof of the ancient Greek view of creation as there is of the current Christian(actually ancient Hebrew) creation story. Zilch! And evolutionists(?) would probably love to debate a "knowledgeable creation scholar" if there were such a thing!

No...evolution has nothing to do with reincarnation, because it posits nothing to the effect of souls returning in different bodies.

There are no knowledgable scholars of Creationism, because the very idea is contradictory.

And your argument against teaching all creation stories just shows that Creationism is based upon popular opinion rather than science...though I doubt you care.

Trying to debate a creationist is like trying to convince an anorexic to eat. Even if you show them a mirror they only see themselves as overweight, rather than starving to death. Creationists and anorexics are both blind to reality.

Funny, with me it's the other way around - the fundies run away screaming when I want to debate them about science.

It's practically word salad.

As a descendant of those ancient Greeks, I'd like to point out an irony. The geocentric view of the earth that your Church held so dearly was in fact supported by Ptolemy, an early Greek scientist.

And evolution has nothing to do with reincarnation. Nor does it have to do with the creation story of Greek mythology. So, you fail.

Reincarnation - now you tell me. I just have find a copy of that ancient book of atheism. I am missing so much about my chosen non-religion.
Perhaps there be one in a drawer in the next motel I frequent.

This is just wrong. Sometimes I get so hungry for a debate with a knowledgeable scholar of creationism that if I can't find one I argue with one of our cats.
