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. 5,284 People

    It makes sense. Things change in order to live.

    Adapt to survive. It makes much more sense to me than there being a "Great creator" Who made this "Great creator"? Did he just come into being? Was there a creator for him too?

    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...

    Coming from a family of agnostics/ atheists it

    comes natural to me to accept theories like this. But even if I wasn't, I'd still accept the overwhelming amounts of scientific-evidence. x

    I repeat this a lot,

    but so many people don't understand basic scientific thinking or the scientific method:A common misconception is that Evolution is Just a theory...What is a scientific theory?A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world...

    Accept is the correct term,

    not believe, as it so often incorrectly put. Belief is irrelevant. Evolution is a scientific theory, which means it is supported by an enormous amount evidence, and in science a theory is, essentially (although not technically), a fact. One does not believe in a fact. Facts...

    Please, no religious debates.

    I'm not arguing religion with this post. In my education and my own personal experiences, I have come to the very personal decision that yes indeed, evolution did take place and is still taking place. The term simply means that things change over time. There is more than...

    Just A Theory? Do You Even Science?

    I don't believe in evolution, I accept it as a scientific theory. In science, a theory holds more weight than just a fact does. A theory is not something we think of in the middle of the night after too much coffee and not enough sleep, that is an idea.  A theory in science...

    Does everyone know right here

    that it still says the theory, not the facts of evolution?

    It makes sense as the general pattern of

    biological nature. It does not contradict my personal theistic beliefs because the Bible should be read where we understand that particular had a cosmology based on their culture, and we have ours. That does not mean it says nothing about today, quite the opposite. But, one...
