Quote# 372

Those crazy "scientists" have never produced a human from a bunch of monkeys! Not one different type of cell in MILLIONS of generations of E.coli, nope, they are all still E.coli. Why can't they make dragonflies from fruitflies? If I can't believe in God because I havn't touched Him (well, I have, "spiritually") or havn't seen Him (well I have, "spiritually") then why should I believe in evolution because "smart" people tell me to? I havn't touched or seen a "macro-evolved creature". Have you?

I'm not trying to insult any evolutionists here, but if a certain test MUST be applied to Christianity, why can't it be applied to evolution?

Sir Lagbehind didn't do so well in junior high biology.

Trust me, skidmark, you couldn't insult a Galapagos Finch.

The problem isn't that one can't see god or touch it. The problem is that god is a supernatural explanation which by definition cannot be tested, and therefore is not a scientific explanation. What evidence could ever demonstrate that god did not create the universe? Every conceivable observation could be said to support the existence of god. Becuase it predicts every conceivable observation, the idea of god is meaningless. Although evolution often takes too long to observe in a lifetime*, the theory of evolution can be falsified by observation because it predicts some observations but not others. In taking that risk it is admissable as a scientific explanation.

*Evolution (including speciation) is actually observable over the course of a life time if you are not solely focused on the charismatic mega-fauna like humans and pandas and shit.

DUH. No one said they did. Or that they could. lol. Point moot.

Not one different type of cell in MILLIONS of generations of E.coli, nope, they are all still E.coli.

If I can't believe in God because I havn't touched Him (well, I have, "spiritually") or havn't seen Him (well I have, "spiritually")

Thats still not PHYSICAL UNDENIABLE proof of God for the scientific community to be convinced and change their minds no matter how hard you try to spin that. sorry. God is FAITH. NOT PROOF. NOT EVIDENCE. NOT LIKE SCIENCE. GET OVER IT.

then why should I believe in evolution because "smart" people tell me to? I havn't touched or seen a "macro-evolved creature". Have you?

of course not. But I know they exist because our scientists have fossils and findings of the bodies of said species that have changed and developed over a period of time to prove it is happening. Whereas no one has found the remains of Christ or seen God in the flesh on earth.

I'm not trying to insult any evolutionists here,

Yes you are. Dont lie. Liars go to Hell remember? You said: "Those crazy "scientists" have never produced a human from a bunch of monkeys!" Sounds like an insult to me.

but if a certain test MUST be applied to Christianity, why can't it be applied to evolution?

point of clarification: Christianity is a RELIGION. It is established in the known world and has been for centuries. We dont need proof or tests for that. If you meant tests applied to GOD and JESUS themselves or physical evidence of Angels Demons or the Apostles... sorry scientifically that just cannot be done as they are non corporeal entities that exist beyond our physical realm and are thus UNTESTABLE. Science uses tests with PHYSICAL THINGS in our everyday surroundings and existence HERE ON EARTH. Please... learn the difference between FAITH and FACT.

The point is your religion fails the test of evidence. Any evidence. It's a compilation of stories with no historical or archeological facts.

You can't compete so you refuse the test of evidence to be invalid, it isn't. We have NO reason to accept your God as real. Many reasons to not believe in God and to trust in science more

Oh yeah, I've touched Heidi Klum (spiritually), so, does that mean I'm the most badass womanizer on the planet?

And the fact that we can test evolution as opposed to religion makes it all the more relevant.

Yes.

Yes, I know exactly what you mean... I've touched and seen God, too... in fact, the last I went trippin', I think I touched the Universe... which is why people like you and me should keep smokin' LSD and listening to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

I once got infected by a highly resistant strain of Streptococcus and had to spend a day and a half with an IV drip of second-line antibiotics to prevent my right ear and mastoid process from being permanently damaged.

That strain was as different from a wild type bacteria as you are from a Neanderthal.

Does that count as a "macro-evolved creature"? Because it sure felt a lot different than normal strep.

Evolution fail. It does not work like that. My ten-year-old niece knows more about Theory of Evolution than you do, SirLagalott.

You are an evolved creature, bubba, haven't you seen or touched yourself? The difference between macro and micro (if indeed it exists) is time, lots and lots and lots of time.
You're not trying to insult any evolutionists, are you? Then you're doing it wrong. Calling someone a crazy "scientist" tend to insult people.

What test MUST be applied to Christianity? Many of those crazy "scientists" are Christian, ya know. They just keep their religion at home and in church.
You shouldn't mix biology and religion any more than you should mix architecture and dancing.

Evolution doesn't work that way, dumbass. Although if you took a monkey and gave it a lobotomy you might get something that posts on Christian Forums.

To answer your last question, merely not being able to see a process at work doesn't mean it isn't working. However, the evidence for evolution is all around us (even in you, whether you like it or not), but the evidence for Christianity remains confined to an ancient book whose contents have repeatedly been shown to be horseshit.

Ignoring the evidence won't make it go away.
