This is a carry over from another thread that got extremely hostile. Now if you can manage to discuss and debate without slinging petty insults, I applaud you and would welcome your input. If you can't that says much more about you than whomever you might attack. I personally am able to appreciate and respect views that are different than my own. Okay Enough of the lecturing. Two Subjects of Debate: 1. Creationism vs. Origin of Life Theories. Most debates end up being Creationism v. Evolution. Two different subjects. 2. Evolution v. the THEORY of Evolution Flawed. I love this debate! So. I believe in God. Not an old guy with a "smite" button on his keyboard. Not a "guy" at all. Simply a life form so far beyond my understanding, it would be comparable to me trying to understand a woman My understanding is that the Theory of the Origin of Life basically, it comes down to this: The odds of life "just appearing" are extraordinary. Like real big. More zeros than I could type in days. So theory goes (and I'm paraphrasing a bit) "Yeah but so what! Life had FOREVER to show up! SOooooo (and here's the zinger) GIVEN ENOUGH TIME, ANYTHING CAN OCCUR!" This is both the basis and the biggest flaw with their argument. Because when you throw in the possibility of a being beyond our understanding, which is all life and connects all life.... it's "Well no that couldn't happen." Theory of Evolution: I believe in evolution but I find the Theory to be flawed. I'll explain my next problem with The THEORY of Evolution from my book "The Las Vegas Times Politically Incorrect Dictionary" Evolution, Theory of: The belief that at some point, a group of reptiles were sitting around and one of them suddenly jumped up and said “Hey, it won't help me survive or anything but I think I’ll be a bird and fly around!”, at which point another said “Well, if you’re going to do that, I’m going to suddenly become warm-blooded, grow hair and start giving live births!”. As a result of this Reptilian Rebellion, the exact same animal became Eagles, Ostriches, Giraffes, Porcupines and People. This theory went onto say that believing anything else was just plain silly. God gets a very big laugh out of all this.[/quote] (that was humor folks - I don't really believe things "decide" to evolve or that lizards talk outside of Pixar movies.) Last point on the Origin of Life vs. Creationism: Where's my danm Ferarri?!?!? Remember: Throw an insult, prove the weakness of your position. We're looking for real debaters on this particular thread. Although humor which doesn't insult anyone is great!
