I believe no believe.
Somehow, that doesn't sound right.

1. Someone proposes a god.
2. It doesn't coincide with what you already know of science.
3. I guess I better sit here and entertain the notion instead of
By the way you describe everything, you'd think to put reflection into

even be remotely true. That it would require some positive thoughts at

When you put thoughts and actions on words and say they can be the
opposite of what they really are... I don't know. I seems so
philosophical rather than actual.
- May I suggest you put down the joint, wait a while, and then write.

"It is absolutely safe to say that, if you meet somebody who claims not to
believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane (or wicked,

No, my friend, you are speaking out of ignorance. First of all, Communism
does not believe in a God, so what is, in general, the only other option for
the creation of man? Evolutionism. In addition Nietzsche was heavily
influenced by Darwin, and Nietzsche strongly influenced
Hitler(superman/nazism) who also influence Mussolini. Look up your

a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the
universe, esp. when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or
agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often
containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
Well, we've already discussed the moral ramification of an Evolutionary
worldview( and all the murder it leads into) so let's see, beliefs
concerning the cause, macro-evolutionism ascribes, poorly i might add, to
the idea of a cosmic burp(big bang) so you got that going, next in the
evolutionary religion, one generally believes life is purposeless and many
state so; Existentialism, and you certainly believe in a superhuman agency
of somekind, though I'm not sure what other than choas in the creation of
everything so, yes, Evolutionism is a religion. This is too easy.
2nd, I'm not supporting communism so I have no response to that, however
if someone kills in the name of Christ it is against his message. If someone
kills in the name of "survival of the fittest" then it is for it's message.
Hitler used members of the Catholic Church in order to support his
pagan/evolutionary ideas but in practice or in theory he was not Christian.
Try again. Come on guys, give me some intelligent discussion.
Lastly, Talkorigins is a joke. I want your ideas not some lame website.
Anyhow, Evolution is an idol. People have created it as an idol in order
to avoid facing the reality that there is a God that will Judge us when we
die. Humans are too proud, generally, to admit that they are wrong so they
hang on to outdated illusions like Evolutionism. I see your talkorigins, and
I seen other sites and they all fail to see the forest for the trees.
Why reject Jesus?

You are an idiot.
First of all evolution is not a religion.
Second, evolution has not been an ideology involved in the killing of
millions of people, Christianity and communism on the other hand...
Remember that Adolf Hitler was a Christian and Joesph Stalin a
communist who supported Lysenko.
Third, there are very good reasons to believe that evolution happened.
