Quote# 40814

I am still very much convinced that Evolution is simply an idea in some people’s minds and not the reality of the natural world. It is no coincidence that it parallels Christianity so closely - this was where Darwin stole most of “his” ideas.

Both Evolution and Christianity are about the transformation of one species into another. For Christianity it is the creation of the new man. Darwin’s scenario begins with one member being different at birth. This follows Christianity as Jesus was different – being conceived by the Holy Spirit. In Evolution this “mutation” gives the individual an advantage in survival. Having been raised from the dead proves that Jesus was a survivor. Finally in evolution the member of a species are not like this new individual becomes “extinct”. This too follows the Christianity in that those who do not accept Jesus are lost. Please note that none of these ideas are self evident in the natural world. They are read into it by our preconceived ideas.

Even if I am completely wrong - evolution itself points to Jesus as mankind’s savior. We can easily see this by asking the question “from an evolutionary point of view who will transform and “save” mankind?”

I can assure you, you are completely wrong.
There is no account in your bible that somehow resembles the evolution principles.

I think you're somewhat grasping at straws.

"Even if I am completely wrong - evolution itself points to Jesus as mankind’s savior. We can easily see this by asking the question “from an evolutionary point of view who will transform and “save” mankind?”"

Evolution doesn't work that way.

"Both Evolution and Christianity are about the transformation of one species into another"

Wow!

Redefining evolution and Christianity at the same time.....

"Finally in evolution the member of a species are not like this new individual becomes “extinct”. This too follows the Christianity in that those who do not accept Jesus are lost"

This is just pure ass-hatery

Oy vey...

But to be honest, he was close to an insight once here.

Even if I am completely wrong...

So, so close but just not quite there...

You are being way too closed minded. There are some good points here

If your book is to be believed, Jesus never reproduced, which gives him an evolutionary fitness of zero.

Through such convulted reasoning, you could find paralells between the Predator and the care-bears, and conclude that they really the same.

This is probably great as a conversation starter with hot and erudite chicks at parties. You can spend hours of deep and meaningful conversation as they enlighten you to reality.

Beats dinner and a movie.

Enlightenment, conversion, and acceptance of reality will get you laid 7 times out of 10.

Im starting to think someone needs to force these fundies to sit down and watch a ton of the BBC's Nature documentaries. "Galapagos" features a very good explanation of how Darwin came up with ToE.

I am still very much convinced that christianity is simply an idea in some people’s minds and not the reality of the natural world. It is no coincidence that it parallels Roman and Greek mythology so closely - this was where early fundies stole most of their ideas.

"who will transform and “save” mankind?”"

That's not evolution, that's a Saturday morning cartoon.

Yeah, Christianity's just an idea. Of course, evolution has evidence.

Darwin’s scenario begins with one member being different at birth.
No. Individuals cannot evolve because you are stuck with the genes that you are born with. Through mating and natural selection the overall genome of a species will change over long periods of time.

'this was where Darwin stole most of “his” ideas.'

The quotes around "his" intrigue me. Is he questioning Darwin's humanity/manhood? Or is he just a nutjob? Let's let the jury decide!
