Evolution and God by jas09 Evolution and God by jas09
When it comes to the creation-evolution debate, many people on this site seem to be divided into two extremes, secular evolutionists and Christian creationists. Beyond dA, there are many people seeking a middle ground between the two positions. How many people actually believe that when Charles Darwin formulated his theory of evolution, he rubbed his hands together and said "I'm gonna disprove Christiainity"? The truth is, Darwin formulated much of his ideas before he abandoned Christianity. The man who first introduced Darwin's theory in the US, botanist Asa Gray, was a Christian who obviously saw no contradiction between Darwin's ideas and his own faith.
Don't let the creationist rhetoric like RejectedDreams' "I Never Said, 'Let there be evolution: God" stamp fool you. There is nothing in evolution that threatens Christianity. Just read the book "The Language of God." The author, Francis Collins, shows us that evolution and Christian belief go hand in hand.

Now I'm gonna wait for RejectedDreams to come along and scold me for not being Christian enough.

When creationists start to rant, the first question that comes to mind is "Do you people fucking know that evolution does NOT disprove your god?"

Thank you. This is exactly what I've been saying for years. The truth I think is that people just want to fight.

"How many people actually believe that when Charles Darwin formulated his theory of evolution, he rubbed his hands together and said "I'm gonna disprove Christiainity"?" Far too many people it seems.

I think it's pretty obvious not all people who believe in evolution are atheists. I mean Christians and Catholics believe in it.

I for one, am a Young Earth Creationist. I think evolution contradicts with the bible and does threaten Christianity although I do accept other people do not hold this belief. But I get the feeling I might be attacked.
I've been called stupid for not accepting evolution although I do love biology and am actually planning to go to college.

Also, I do believe Darwin went out with that intention.

I accept evolution, but I don't think it is ever okay to call someone stupid for not accepting it. Whoever is doing that is in the wrong.

Yes, I agree. Even if people don't agree it should always be with respect. Some people don't believe in that, a kind of "earn my respect" thing.

I am an athiest and beleive in evolution and a lack of a deity but i would believe in god if the nesecary evidence was provided a single experience and"just have faith" is not enough

The harsh reality is that the very idea of God can have no definable evidence apart from the evidence deemed "necessary" for each individual person to come to "faith". There will never be that one "Aha" moment for every person on Earth to experience all at once. When people say to "just have faith" what they really mean is "there is no way for me to prove the existence of God to you. If I could then I would be God and obviously I am not. Only God can prove His existence to you and for what reason would he tell me how he's gonna do it?" Just felt like putting it out their. The idea of faith can have broad implications.

I am a Catholic and I support science, including evolution. God created everything, and evolution was one of his tolls.
