    Nobody really knows jack shit...anything is possible since we don’t even know what it is we are experiencing...At the most fundamental level, we are deaf , dumb, and blind..They could be correct, you could be correct, but most likely, everyone is incorrect..

    The Catholic Church backs evolution, but with the addition of a human soul.

    Usually, people that do not question the why and how of life are the same morons that the phrase "ignorance is bliss" was created for. Guess what, you dont know. No one knows. If you do, please tell us all about it.
    Please dont.

    Yes, that is true. Pope Francis has backed the prevailing scientific theories including the "Big Bang".

    Everyone is wrong,
    [​IMG]
    some are just more on the right path than others, and they use evidence to show their conclusions, and not terrible analogies that just show the person making the analogy has problem with how the universe is so complicated, and because they are to egotistical has to believe some being put order into it, because we are beings and want to be validated in our existence.

    Wouldn't you favor the theory that can make testable predictions and the one that produces real world results that all of us utilize today?

    Science may not have all the answers but it sure has more than religion.

    Great, so you agree that evolution occurs. You may now exit the thread.

    Okay, we're carbon based life forms, from the observable universe no human could have possibly existed within those parameters.

    Good discussion, now let the adults have a conversation.

    So, will I be the first to complain about the wholesale censorship of Creationists?

    They're not censored, they can teach Creationism in a philosophy or religion class, just not Science.

    Darwinism (evolution) teaches us that our species evolve though a natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individuals ability to compete, survive, and ultimately reproduce. Thus if an individual fails to reproduce it is because that individual was unable to adapt to their environment and as a result their unique genetics get eliminated in the species' evolution.

    We can teach evolution is the classroom all we want, but some of the most educated, science-minded people I know straight up reject as "offensive" the idea that failing to reproduce is a failure of your genetics to adapt and compete. I just throw this in here to make sure everyone knows that it is not just the church that rejects key parts from the theory of evolution.

    yes.
    but that doesnt mean i have to have faith in it.

    i never understood the ‘its one or the other’ thing

    takin a step back in perspective - its humans trying to answer the big questions. we have gotten better at it, but it doesnt mean we are right, nor that there isnt a tendency for human flaws in the testing. scientific theory and static testing is wonderful and also how i try to approach any problem, but people are still people.

    I don’t think we are there, yet.

    This is silly. Science is not meant to 'compete' with religion. Anyone who 'believes' in science instead of religion is doing it wrong. Scientific knowledge is by nature temporary. The fact that science accepts nothing as absolutely true by default and constantly questions and challenges its own answers is what set itself apart from religion in the first place.

    Young earth creationism is nonsense I dont believe there are people who still take it seriously.

    Whether or not the big bang was the Creation event is not possible to know at the moment and we should wait before talking about that.
