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. 3,935 People

    I believe in God, and his love

    for us is more evident in our evolution. Accepting the theory of evolution is a way to acknowledge the amazing powers of the universe and the nature that God created. But the creation myth just shows a bad tempered God that made his creation for selfish purposes and...

    I think it's kind of funny

    that this even has to be a group. I think just about all people accept evolution. And if they don't, I suggest they take a sixth grade science class. I'm really appreciative of evolution. It's bad such an impact in medicine and the entire planet over time. When you really...

    I believe in God to be a loving

    and conscious energy. Evolution is just a way of explaining how God created the universe in the beings in it. Why is it so hard to accept a plausible theory? I don't think it was Darwin's intent to try to lead people away from religion, he wanted to know more about how we came...

    I don't. Atleast not the most common they

    accepted one especially considering that it was disproved. It was long since believe that we eve loved to walk bipedal in tall savannah grasses, but it's been proved that we were already walking before they developed.

    Discuss Evolution?

    I do not believe in evolution, and I was wondering if any that do would be willing to discuss it with me. I'd like a better understanding of why people are so certain of it. Consider it a civil, friendly argument. I don't want to fight or have any offense involved. I'm really...

    The Argument should be... Bible vs. Science. Not GOD vs. Science. I have to believe science over a book about a man, a woman and a talking snake. For Pete's sake, we would all be related... Oh, the bible is real, but that particular story is just a story.... Sure. The age of the...

    It seems impossible to me,

    that anyone can *not* accept this. I have lived my whole life inside the confines (maybe that's a too-negative sounding word?) of the Church: and while I could not remotely claim to be either a theologian or a Biblical scholar (too busy being a mom, wife, and whittering away...

    Evolution has always been my favorite subject.

    When people tell me they don't accept it, it makes me sad. Then they tell me the reasons they don't. You almost think this people are stupid, but it's just cause they've been brainwashed. So it's very sad.

    Silliness

    Why We Don't Need To Look At The Fossil Record To Establish That The Theory Of Evolution Is Probably True

    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...

    I accept the theory of evolution,

    and I just don't see how it and the theory of creation are supposed to be mutually exclusive. They can go together, hand in hand, and paint a fuller picture. But that's just the religious scientist in me talking.
