    @jioann00 35,000 gods, yet only 10 were born on Dec. 25? Why so few? That can’t be a coincidence…

    @acr08807 odin is my favourite demon. :D

    @ShowYourWorking The “gods” of Asgard are very real. They’re not gods, though, they’re demons.

    @jioann00 The Earth doesn’t have any moons. The Bible tells us that the Earth is flat. It’s sad that you “science” types reject the eyewitness testimony of the only guy who was there at the time of creation around 6,000 years ago.

    @jioann00 @jioann00 Fully agree with all that you wrote, but what’s up with that 2 moons bs ?

    Once and for all. The flood story is a myth, a metaphor, a made up notion, from the savage and ignorant childhood of humanity. It’s as real as the gods of Asgard or the big juju up the mountain. Try to open your mind and rejoice in the knowledge humantiy has won in the milennia since that primitive rubbish was invented.

    @dxcell1

    You’re not impressing anyone, you know.

    What have you actually studied (not just read, but studied) about the theory of evolution other than a bunch of mined quotes?

    What he is saying you should doubt. The fossil record is devoid of truth. The layers of earth time show graduations with general progression, yet, the progression has anomolies which thrwart this theory here presented. The flood story explains his incredulous showing and species graduation over billions of years of time. the bottom line, there are a thousand problems with the evolution belief system which is unfounded, to the young earth theory which explains the anomolies amply. Seek truth

    the geologic record did not then and still does not yield a finely graduated chain of slow and progressive evolution.”—January 1979, Vol. 50, No. 1, pp. 22, 23.

    The Bulletin of Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History pointed out: “Darwin’s theory of [evolution] has always been closely linked to evidence from fossils, and probably most people assume that fossils provide a very important part of the general argument that is made in favor of darwinian interpretations of the history of life. Unfortunately, this is not strictly true. . . .

    Smithsonian Institution scientist Porter Kier says: “There are a hundred million fossils, all catalogued and identified, in museums around the world.” (New Scientist, January 15, 1981, p. 129) A Guide to Earth History adds: “By the aid of fossils palaeontologists can now give us an excellent picture of the life of past ages.”—(New York, 1956), Richard Carrington, Mentor edition, p. 48.

    Darwin acknowledged: “If numerous species . . . have really started into life at once, the fact would be fatal to the theory of evolution.” (The Origin of Species, New York, 1902, Part Two, p. 83) Does the evidence indicate that “numerous species” came into existence at the same time, or does it point to gradual development, as evolution holds?

  13. dxcell1 on March 28th, 2011 9:08 pm

    “A century after Darwin’s death, we still have not the slightest demonstrable or even plausible idea of how evolution really took place—and in recent years this has led to an extraordinary series of battles over the whole question. . . . A state of almost open war exists among the evolutionists themselves, with every kind of [evolutionary] sect urging some new modification.”—C. Booker (London Times writer), The Star, (Johannesburg), April 20, 1982, p. 19.

  14. dxcell1 on March 28th, 2011 9:14 pm

    The introduction to the centennial edition of Darwin’s Origin of Species (London, 1956) says: “As we know, there is a great divergence of opinion among biologists, not only about the causes of evolution but even about the actual process. This divergence exists because the evidence is unsatisfactory and does not permit any certain conclusion. It is therefore right and proper to draw the attention of the non-scientific public to the disagreements about evolution.”

    5 Physicist H. S. Lipson said: “The only acceptable explanation is creation. I know that this is anathema to physicists, as indeed it is to me, but we must not reject a theory that we do not like if the experimental evidence supports it.” (Italics added.)—Physics Bulletin, 1980, Vol. 31, p. 138.

    4 According to New Scientist: “An increasing number of scientists, most particularly a growing number of evolutionists . . . argue that Darwinian evolutionary theory is no genuine scientific theory at all. . . . Many of the critics have the highest intellectual credentials.”—June 25, 1981, p. 828.

    3 Evolutionist Loren Eiseley acknowledged: “After having chided the theologian for his reliance on myth and miracle, science found itself in the unenviable position of having to create a mythology of its own: namely, the assumption that what, after long effort, could not be proved to take place today had, in truth, taken place in the primeval past.”—The Immense Journey (New York, 1957), p. 199.

    2 Astronomer Robert Jastrow says: “To their chagrin [scientists] have no clear-cut answer, because chemists have never succeeded in reproducing nature’s experiments on the creation of life out of nonliving matter. Scientists do not know how that happened.”—The Enchanted Loom: Mind in the Universe (New York, 1981), p. 19.

  19. dxcell1 on March 29th, 2011 12:16 am

    1 The “scientific method” is as follows: Observe what happens; based on those observations, form a theory as to what may be true; test the theory by further observations and by experiments; and watch to see if the predictions based on the theory are fulfilled. Is this the method followed by those who believe in and teach evolution?

    @mightyafrowhitey

    No I get that point. Ignorance is bliss. But what makes a difference here is for society to base itself on something which isn’t true. I can believe I’m a millionaire. But it doesn’t make it true. Just because Religion is so diffuse that you can basically put anything into it and take anything out of it. Doesn’t make it anymore true. Thats what matters in the end. What Darwin shows us, is that we don’t have to believe. We can have knowledge of our beginning.

    @Muthsera80 only that peole who believe it seem to have a better life on the whole. the human brain is an incredibly complex instrument. never underestimate the power of ofthe mind. someone believes in something that gives them a personal understanding of their place in the world and a reason for existing. which makes them happier and gives them a better outlook on life, and better things just seem to happen to them because they make choices in life based on that positive outlook.

  23. mightyafrowhitey on March 29th, 2011 1:33 am

    @Muthsera80 actually, it’s been proven that people who believe in god are generally happier. true it’s just a positive correlation, and it could be that people who have a better outlook on life are generally driven to be more spiritual. but even if the opposite was the case, and believing in god really did statistially make people happier on the whole, that still in no way proves the existence of god.

    I cannot believe in this day and age anyone is stupid enough to hear the evidence and still refute it.

  25. nicce1982 on March 29th, 2011 3:08 am

    true! I belive that evolution is the truth, but I also belive that evolution doesn’t rule out the possibility of a creator!! It only rules out the statement that earth is 6000 years old and that man walked the earth first!! Wich doesn’t rule out the possibility that a god or a beiing with more knowledge and understanding of how the universe works somehow kickstarted the events that led to evolution. And that is what people where so desperatly trying to explain when they told poems of Eden, etc
