Creationist Vs Evolutionary Theory

Recommended Posts

Evolutionary types have developed theories about how mankind evolved with a fair amount of detail, if they can just find the missing links.

 

Even Fox and ABC, are bandying around "missing link" at the discovery of this almost complete 3.32 million year old hominid skeleton

That's going back a while, PB.

I like this story:

God is sitting in Heaven when a scientist approaches him and says "We don't need you any more. Science has worked out how to create life from nothing. We can now do what you did in the beginning."

"Oh really?" says God.

"Yes" says the scientist. We can take plain soil and form it into a likeness of you, then breathe life into it, thus creating man."

"Very interesting" says God. "Show me."

So the scientist bends down and starts to mould the soil into the shape of a man.

"Hang on, hang on", interrupts God. "Get your own soil, son." (July 2006 Reader's Digest)

The remains were discovered in December 2000, but it has taken over 5 years so far to remove them from the sandstone in which they were entombed

 

The articles I linked to refer to a paper which appeared in the journal "Nature" on 21st September 2006, 10 days ago

 

I'd say (especially when compared to the 3.32 million year old skeleton) that's pretty up to date :wink:

There's an interesting looking programme on tonight about panspermia, which is the theory that life 'began' elsewhere (or in multiple simultaneous places) and was somehow transported to earth and throughout the universe. Not a theory I believe holds much water, but Fred Hoyle was a proponent if I mind right

 

Horizon - 9pm - BBC2 - Tues 14th Nov

 

You can usually watch repeats of Horizon on the BBC website

Creationism? I couldn't believe in creationism: it is based on no evidence and FAITH! They support thier theories by poking holes in Evolution, without using their own evidence.

 

Based on a book. Written 2000 years ago. transelated. transelated, transelated. transelated.

 

Back then not everyone was a translatist, only the powerful could afford to employ the translators and thus, the book was interpreted to the like of the powerful leaders at that time.

 

Look at some of Richard Dawkins work. He'll set you on the right track.

 

Religion is evil in my opinion as it teaches children that you don't need proof to believe something, and accept something blindly. I'd rather live in a truthful world - a REAL world.

James for the most i agree with you, however its not only religion that teaches children to believe in something without proof, to be topical christmas and st nicholas. but children like the thought of magic, and fairies, you cant expect them to be sinicle about the world from day one, it wouldnt be fair to them, thats something they need to grow into.

Surely creationism simply pushes the problem of origin up a level. It doesn't answer anything, just moves the question to a higher-order of complexity; i.e. who or what created God?

 

Unless, of course, time and the universe are in a loop and the intelligence created by the universe goes on to create itself...

 

or something. o_O

Surely evolutionism (?) (science) pushes the problem of origin down a level. It doesn't amswer everything, just moves the question to a higher order of complexity; ie what is everything made of? Where did that matter come from?

 

Unless, of course the answer really is 42, which i'm totally happy to beleive. Perhaps Douglas Adams was a demi-god. :P
