evolution stamp by Apsaravis evolution stamp by Apsaravis
I'm tired of all those people saying "I don't believe in evolution because [insert random creationist crap here]". (And creationism includes all that "Intelligent Design" stuff, hope it's obvious)
You can't say "I believe/don't believe in evolution", because, well, it's not a matter of belief. :roll:
People who reject evolution most often simply have no idea what it is about and that's rather sad.

It means more than that in the scientific world. Scientists have done studies and experiments so show that this is a very likely possibility that it is true. You read the definition of hypothesis.

I understand you have your beliefs and I respect that. I'm going to explain calmly (unlike others) our side of the story. There is fossil evidence from billions of years ago that show that evolution is real. (I forgot the name of the species sorry) there were fishes that were able to develop back bones (like us) that eventually led to land animals, and from natural selection we developed into humans. There is also evidence in our DNA codes that we are related to other species. I understand your confusion about other apes. Like different species of dogs, there are different species of apes. We have just branched off and removed ourselves from natural selection. In the next billions of years if the human race goes on, we will not change as much as others because we have artificial selection. Nature selects the individuals with disadvantages and cuts them out. But sometimes in genetic codes there is a mutism or animal that has an advantage and those beings move on. We humans do what we can to let everyone live and let them reproduce. I hope this is enough to answer your question. (Sorry if it's a little long)

No, you're missunderstanding something there. :/

You know how everything living consists out of cells, right? Imagine those as lego blocks.

Nowadays things like bacteria exist, they're made of one singular cell.
There's also multicellular beings; going from bigger bacteria to us, humans.

At the start of evolution a few of those cells, like lego blocks, connected, for the convenience of each other.
Similar to how clown fish and anemones live in Symbiosis, just more extreme because cells are tiny.

Some cells started being like "okay, we'll deal with toxins", and became something liver like, etc etc etc. So organs came to be. Skin came to be, eventually cells that could perceive senses...

Nothing came from a rock. Rocks are probably just where cells connected on to not be flooded away by water or something like that.
According to evolution you are a Big Primate, like chimpanzees or gorillas.
We are Homo sapiens sapiens, of the Genus Homo, Tribe Homini, Family Homonidae, from the Order Primates.

It goes further; we are from the class Mammalia, because we're mammalians like cats and dogs. We're Chordata, as in we aren't worms. And we are of the Kingdom Animalia, because we aren't plants, but animals as well.


Instead of saying it's just bull, please inform yourself better beforehand. You obviously don't quite know what you're talking about there.

All the time I've been a Christian, I've seen nonbelievers and evolutionists react the most strongly concerning their beliefs. And when faced with different opinions, resort to hate-filled, condescending remarks that's better described as trolling and flaming.

And are you saying all atheists are scientists? The people I talk to are regular people who took the same kind of education I did.
It'd be more correct to say "Christians don't bring facts while nonbelievers do", but either way is a fallacy.
Christians and Creationists can be scientists too, and use facts and present evidences. When talking to the right people, believers and nonbelievers can lead to an interesting conversation.

Heh, thanks.  I figured he was either trolling or schizophrenic, but either way I'm not going there...

I think the percentage was 25%, but that's even worse...  So about a third of Americans accept evolution as true (at best), about another third believe in guided evolution or intelligent design, and the rest believe in literal creationism, with most of those people believing the world is 6,000 years old.

America is usually the western country that's behind all the rest in terms of getting with reality.  It's a shame, because once this country was all "Innovation!  Opportunity!  Freedom!"  I know that the U.S. is significantly more religious than most other western or developed countries, but I have no idea how much that factors into our dropping statistics in just about everything.

But you're right about education.  Teachers are forced to waste time teaching a religious story (from one religion, which shows clear preference even though public operations aren't supposed to) in a science classroom, in order to be fair and "teach both sides".  Hell, one guy in my high school biology class tried to argue that menstruation is women's punishment for eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge, but couldn't explain why female dogs, who also menstruate monthly, would do such a thing if dogs hadn't eaten the fruit.

I'm sorry not everybody believes in your ancient OC, I prefer facts, reasoning, and common sense. Fuck me, right?
