edit: just fyi, we don't descend from monkey, but we share a common ancestor with the great apes (we ARE a great Ape)

Be glad that the USSR, the UK and the US were the ones to obtain nuclear power during the 1940s, because every single nuclear scientist that worked in those countries were exiles from Nazi Germany, and if they hadn't been exiled, it would be Hitler and Mussolini with the bomb.

very good video, simple and clear.

However, Natural Selection isn't "proof" of Evolution, it is just a major component in the theory of evolution. Natural Selection explains how evolution was "guided", it is a theoretical model that explains reality.

I hate evolution theory. It's really a debate of philosophy.

Is it all just anarchy, or is some higher power in play?
Is the real question behind the Creationism vs Evolution (which isn't a debate because admittedly creationists CANNOT provide solid evidence, whilst they CAN point out that they CANNOT be disproven) "debate".

I think it's healthy to believe God put evolution into play. It's the only realistic solution to the debate.

how can you hate a theory that explains beyond reasonable doubt the incredible diversity of life?

debate of philosophy??? I agree that there is no debate, on one side you have science, on the other you have faith.

Is it all just anarchy, or is some higher power in play?

Evolution is anything BUT anarchy, although there is random component to it, the way species have evolved is the opposite of random. However, Evolution still allows the "possibility" of a higher power in play (since we still don't know everything about life and our universe, every "gap of knowledge" allows for a higher power to be in play, at least until we know more about it)


whilst they CAN point out that they CANNOT be disproven

are you kidding me? everything creation related in the Bible CAN be and HAS been disproven (in fact, the Theory of Evolution disprove the bible creation)

I think it's healthy to believe God put evolution into play. It's the only realistic solution to the debate.


I can't say i agree on the "healthy" part, but if a christian wants to stay a christian and accept the scientific facts, he has to find a way to reconcile evolution with god. So i guess believing that god designed this amazing system allowing evolution of species is one way to put it (and what i think mainstream christianity chose to believe)

edit:
if you want to watch creationnism being debunked, you can watch the Bill Nye vs Ken Ham debate (2h) on:

In the past I often have thought I got things right because I won each and every "argument". Then I had to realize the hard way that the only reason I never got disproven was that I was only talking to people who agreed with my viewpoint. The real reason I had won so many arguments was also that I wasn't truly arguing against the arguments of my opponents but I was arguing against strawmans. Usually arguing against strawmans is considered polemics but I guess nobody ever finds it necessary to really find out what their opponents have to say. Well, this is the internet where everyone is an expert on everything and only the stupid other guys have to learn stuff and get their facts straight.


Here is a quite well made debate between an unbeliever and a Christian to help you also see both parts:

Norman, if you just read my last post, you will see that i posted the very same link!! a 2 hour debate that i did wach in full. In fact the onther link i gave "Ken Ham almost understand evolution" is also an extract from this debate.You really can't say to me that i don't hear both side of the "argument".

and you say "unbeliever vs christian", wich is absolutely wrong. it is an argument between a guy explaining what science says versus a creationist (you can be a christian and against creationism, in fact most christians are)

edit: Did you watch the full debate? and if so, do yu still think creationism is a viable model in today's modern,scientific era?

Evolution is real, just observe the different races of human. Humans evolved from the tropical regions of Africa because humans in these regions are of the most primitive, animalistic type. Contrast them with Nordic Europeans who possess greater intelligence and more ideal physical features and are responsible for designing the machinery that makes today's civilization so advanced.
