    Evolution Is Not a Belief

    It feels rather silly to state that I "believe" in evolution. Just as silly as believing in gravity, believing that the earth is a sphere instead of a pancake and that it revolves around the sun instead of the other way around. Some things are just what they are, no...

    Evidence clearly proves

    that scientific opinion is a fact, and through teleological selection, empirical findings do naturally arise from antecedent influences. Case in point is the long held view that the cause for what is believed to be earth's first mass extinction was the common belief in a...

    Living 4d

    The 3 dimensional world that we belong to is abruptly grounded. it leaves us with no scope or opportunity to expand or explore possibilities that we have never seen, felt or experienced. The world we are in with all its materialistic features keeps us grounded to the R-Complex...

    Intervening is influencing. Does everything influence, intervene when it is in contact with something else (direct, indirect) ? Intervention can have negative, 0 , positive effect. Of course you can only influens something through something that has an effect.

    Evolutionists believe

    that species have adapted and evolved over time. If this is so, then what came first, the chicken or the egg? A chicken has to be born from an egg, just like a baby has to be born from a fetus. How did the egg get here? An egg is not alive and therefore, it can not evolve.

    I Do Also, But Also Believe In God

    Yeah I believe in evolution, I believe that God created the universe, but basically I think it is prideful to say what god did or does. I think there can be a "scientist" or whatever that still believes in a higher power. It's my choice.   I find it funny when the...

    Exclusion ?

    Hello. Does evolution exclude intervention (divine, other) ? someone could have started something and then the ones that best fitted a situation trived the most. Situation change => best fitting ones are different.

    God Gave Us Science

    I'm a Christian and absolutely accept evolution as God's method of creation. The greatest errors of the "Fundamentalist Christians" are their beliefs in Biblical inerrancy and literalism. Science is a gift from God that allows us to peek into the glory and magnitude of His...

    It's Smack In the Face Obvious

    Anyone who has ever cross-bred animals or plants and watched genetics at work can see that in time vast changes can occur without any deliberate manipulation. It's just logical.

    A Beginning and the End of Evolution On Earth

      I see patterns in evolution. Observe how closely the zygote parallels the first single cell life form on our Mother Earth. It becomes fertilized and grows from two celled to complex organisms. The resulting embryo has gills, wings and a tail as it mimics the evolution...

    I also believe.. that if something can be progressive.. it can also be degressive. Anyone who has paid attention to the last few years even slightly should know what I mean.

    Evolution Is An Established Scientific Fact.

    I think that the name of our group doesn't fit me exactly. I guess that the word "Believe" means to me how I think about something that is unprovable, or is an opinion of mine. As in "I believe that Ding-Dongs are better than Twinkies", or "I believe that capital punishment is...

    What Separates Us From the Animals ?

    This is a question often asked and I'd like to hear your answers. ( please no "opposible thumb" responses, we all know that one ) I think it's our abstract thinking capability. I think at some point in evolutionary time, a crisis of some sort arose and only those who...

    I Believe In Both Evolution And God

    God is something for us to believe in, ironically when it comes right down to god he's what we is there when we don't have other answers. As to evolution it's proven more quickly in viruses that adapt from generation to generation that they will mutate to survive in the host, as...

    When people say evolution is just a theory.

    .. A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of FACTS that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment. Such fact-supported theories are not "guesses" but reliable accounts of the real world...

    and the iron in our blood come from ancient explosions of giant stars.... Just one part of the MANY pieces of evidence that backs up the evolution theory. If you still don't believe in evolution, there is no hope for you.

    Darwin's theory I believe is no longer a theory but a fact. About all of the scientists in the U. S. are either Agnostic or Atheist. Darwin's theory is a revolutionary breakthrough on how we perceive the world and the way we see Nature.

    What's Not To Believe?

    Not believing in evolution comes from refusing to believe it. It is happening right in front of you, and can be literally demonstrated within a few generations when conditions are controlled. Don't be scared non-believers, without evolution, life would be unliveable - hee hee.

    I Don't Believe In Evolution.
