I've heard rants and raves about this subject on other forums, so I figured I'd bring the disease here. Please, though:

If you want to argue a point, don't turn this into a flame war. Seriously, just look at philosophy, facts, etc. NOT who has the better insults.

Just to make things clear: I'm for the Creation side of this, and yes I know, there's also an Intelligent Design part arising among scientists. However, I see this as a half-assed attempt to say 'We were created... but not by God.'

I put it in the polls, though, just in case.

So vote, then speak your piece!

wow, remy..

your statement is very impressing.. i love such scientific arguments....

uhm, interesting for me was that heavy elements couldn't so easy develop because of this mass gap...(which has to bind the protons/neutrons etc)....

and impressing also how you told us about how the dns is structured^^... i had this thing with amino-acids in my chemistry... it's very iinteresting...

this statement of yours should convert many ppl to become believers^^^^^^

^thanks^^

Thanks - although I don't think many people will give up evolution so easily, the theory's come close to dying before and other people just picked it up again.

Anyway, yeah. I like to make a scientific argument because people so easily throw away scriptural evidence.


Oh, and What, no bacon? the age-old argument that scripture is a pack o lies doesn't hold up either. There have been several instances where people disagreed with historical references in the Bible, things that 'couldn't happen' and other stuff. But every time, historians and archaeologists have found evidence to the contrary. Scientists have proven that soundwaves of a certain frequency (within the range of human speech, too!) could shake stone from the mortar around it. This shows that Jericho could actually have fallen by the Israelites' marching and trumpeting.
Other instances include mating times and gestation periods for frogs - when certain ones overlap, frogs appear in much greater quantities. Historians speculate that was one of the punishments God put upon Egypt. They have also found evidence of a pre-epidemic outburst of the Black Plague in Egypt, as well as explanations for all the others. However I don't have the book with me, so I'll just post it later.

Even historical references have seemingly contradicted the Bible, then later showing that the Bible is right. I need to go NOW, so I will finish this later. Sorry!

I never said that scripture is a 'pack o lies'. I'm well aware that many of the events described in the bible are based on actual events. The problem is that historical evidence by and large rules out any kind of divine intervention, and all the events you described can be explained very easily without reference to any kind of mystical powers.
When it comes to the book of Genesis, however, there has been absolutely nothing to support the claim that the earth was created in 7 days, 5,000-10,000 years ago. And there is certainly nothing to support the claim that this was done at the hands of some all-powerful being with a grand design in mind.
