I Accept the Theory of Evolution

I've heard it mentioned, quite sensibly, that it's not necessarily a matter of belief and so... this group. 4,323 People

    I believe God created everything.

    However, Genesis is poetic and God had the story of creation told in a way they would understand it best at that time. A day to God is not a day to us. Evolution proves God great detailed work that took a large amount of time to us but not more than a "day" to Him.

    Silliness

    I think it's absolutely silly that people still debate about whether or not evolution is real, when we've witnessed it happen. Mutations and changes happen all the time. Bacterias have evolved to withstand the drugs used against them. I also think it's important that people look...

    there are still gaps, but the sense of it all is overwhelming.

    Stupid People- I don't get how some people can

    still believe in Creationism. I'm an atheist but I don't hate on Christianity, but there are 2 things that people believe that I can't stand: thinking being gay is a sin and all that and Creationism. Like really, evolution is BASICALLY proven. There's sooo much evidence for it...

    Creationism and Intelligent Design are not credible theories. Both of these fraudulent claims are Unconstitutional If Taught In Public Schools

    The courts have ruled. Creationism and Intelligent Design are bogus plots to get religion back into our public schools. Enjoy this very informative NOVA special on the Kitzmiller v. Dover case that conclusively proved what a fraud Creationism is. http://youtu.be/kCKnHv6rxs8

    I think its interesting to see how in a way we

    all have a common ancestor. it really makes you think about how interconnected we are as a planet. even though we're separated by species and the evolution of things, when you trace heritage back to the beginning, at one point, we were all one in a sense.

    Evolution Is NOT A Theory Anymore

    A Reality Whether You Accept Or Not

    Evolution is an irrefutable reality. It doesn't require laypeople accepting it or not. I have read a number of extremely ignorant comments on this board. First, in science, a "theory" is much stronger than a fact. It has more evidence, peer-reviewed support, it can be tested...
