i figured this might be an interesting thread. so, what is the evidence you have seen for evolution, and what is the evidence you have seen for creation?
i only ask one thing, please do not derail this thread into bashing people with different views. if you think a particular way of interpreting a piece of information is deluded or idiotic, poke holes in the argument rather than attack the person.
i would like to see fairly objective reasoning.
anyway, anything that you can think of that supports either creation or evolution, or refutes either of them. scientific discoveries, mathematics, genetics, etc. share the evidence and share why you believe it supports or refutes a either side.
i would love to hear your thoughts.
I've dived deep into both camps and both have pros and cons.
I've read the latest theories, only to be replaced by more theories.
During those times, the current theories were told as fact, later to be replaced by other theories.
I have yet to see a cat turn into an alien, or a human turn into a reptile. Over 7+ billion people in a short time and people were the same today as back to the first Egyptian Dynasty, 2500 BC if I'm correct.
We are finding more and more species alive and thriving that were supposed to die off millions of years ago.
Some theories say humans aren't native to planet earth and that we were placed here after everything else was done.
Many ancient civilizations with statues and pictures of beings that look like aliens.
Advanced technologies back then would seem like magic and nonsense because they're so advanced.
A human today with all technologies and understanding how things work, goes back 1000 years......people would say he is a divine being. Imagine 5000 or 10,000 years ago? A God.
New theories will always come forth and that will never change.
I see it this way. All life is meant to micro evolve, meaning limitless horizontal changes based on environment, food sources, etc. Otherwise everything would be extinct.
One camp believes in creation. Everything designed in the beginning and let go its way since then naturally. How do you describe creation in scientific terms, very difficult.
The other camp believes in evolution. Everything came uncaused, by accident, randomness, very long periods of time, and you have all complex life forms of what you get today. That makes no sense either.
I honesty think its a bit of both.
If you were an advanced being, no body, all mind, and you designed a universe with everything in it, it would be easy for you. Try explaining that to physical beings so they understand. Good luck. Magic, we can't comprehend it so it doesn't exist, etc. 100+ years later we got it......oooops we understand now.
Based on evolution, universe is billions of years old, speed of light.
Based on design in the beginning, speed of light is irrelevant until after the design is put in place.
The only true way well start figuring out how everything works, no theories, no telescopes, build space ships and get out there.
Sign me up Scotty. I would be out there so fast.
