Re: i am a evangelical christian

[EDITED to include stuff about Darwin] I must conclude that it takes a great deal more faith to believe in an accidental universe than to believe in an intelligent creator. Faith is your jurisdiction. We work with reason. Given that we don't yet have the means to explain the origin of the universe,...

Re: John Edwards

He's so busy seeing things that aren't there, that he doesn't see commitments which actually are there in his own schedule.

I'm guessing the telly pays more than live performances?

Re: i am a evangelical christian

what are you looking for at a Atheist forum ? honestly..... what is the reason you are here ? what is the reason, you post at this thread ? Adonai, hi. This is an atheist forum. If there's anyone who needs to explain their reasons for being here, it's you. You're clearly not open to the idea that t...

Re: i am a evangelical christian

I am presenting the evidence ( and, despite you and others here assert it is not, in my opinion it IS compelling and convincing evidence ) that has convinced ME. I'm sorry, but your opinion is irrelevant. Something is either true or it isn't. You haven't been shown any evidence. Rather, you've been...

Re: i am a evangelical christian

0 x 0 = 1 makes no sense, irrational, not logic God through his power = created everything That's not an explanation. You're just giving your lack of knowledge the name "God". What rational people say is "We don't yet know what caused the universe." (Also, I wasn't aware that to get an effect you h...

Re: i am a evangelical christian

Adonai, The reason we're having trouble accepting your arguments is that they're simply not convincing. The sources you cite have an obvious agenda. "Creation science" is not science. It starts out with an assumption that there is a god, and then goes about trying to find evidence to support it, whi...

Re: i am a evangelical christian

Therefore, I accept microevolution as a scientifically reliable theory, which describes the intelligent design with which organisms were endowed by their Designer. However, in contrast to the reliability of microevolutionary theory, macroevolution is not supported by the record of nature or current...

Re: i am a evangelical christian

Evolution is as proven and provable a fact as gravity is.

Re: i am a evangelical christian

Angelo, hi. Your claim that the theory of evolution is based on faith is only true insofar as you'll accept that the theory of gravity is also based on faith. I have a feeling you're willing to accept that gravity exists, without necessarily knowing the intricacies of how it works. Evolution is gene...

Re: i am a evangelical christian

Angelo, I highly recommend you read Darwin's Origin of Species . It's not at all difficult to understand, and it's freely available on the internet. Once you realise that "Evolutionism" does not intend to explain anything other than the means by which species evolve (and it does so with such startli...
