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.

Because people use it like it's a weapon to attack religious/faithful beliefs, as if science was a religion too.
Also see here how the big bang theory is disproven since it ties into religion, and religion explained it before science came into education.

Proof.

Now why should I believe what science says if it ws explained before science said so? Also the water cycle was explained long before meteorology was invented. Making science, a hitch hiker. XD

Proof is in previous paragraphs.

Well that's stupid. XD Because gravity at least stays the same depending on what planet you're on.

I know how science works, I took science twice, duhh! Plus Philosophy has came up with rules in science today, like the greek philosopher Democritus atomic theory. Science wasn't fully around then, but his theory was right! abyss.uoregon.edu/~js/21st_cen…
Anti theists can't hold a solid argument.
Judge me by my works and avatar... prejudice much? X3

And you are making this assertion because, to you, religion is somehow more likely. Religion requires faith, a word, that by definition means a belief or hunch, as opposed to a fact. Existence of a deity or afterlife is, by definition, eternal and un-proveable. Which makes that assertion even less fact based than science.

Technically, nothing can be proven 100% in science, all we can ever have is theory or law, which is very close to being a fact. And also according to science, personal testimony and experience are far less reliable than experimental or scientific data. In which case, how do you prove anything as a fact? Personal experience is even less reliable than science, yet we believe many things as true facts based on experience alone.

So, what do you use to prove something as a fact, seeing as you don't care to use scientific theory? Personal experience is unreliable, religion and faith are even worse. Science eliminates bias and comes as close to fact as ANYONE can get, but due to the way things work, nothing can be proven 100%. We could all be in the matrix for all you know, everything personal experience tells us could be a lie, so how do you know what is a fact?

If you think science has to have no doubts, maybe you should try doubting gravity, and jump off a 40 story building.

You really didn't think your answer through at all, did you? Learn about how science works, before you go around saying something has to be 100% fact, because you clearly know nearly nothing about science...On second glance, your account and artwork seem to indicate you are a young teenager with very little skill or worldly experience, in which case I assume I'm right in saying you know next to nothing about science or philosphy, and probably make stupid comments all the time.

"close to a fact as science gets," Implying that it isn't a fact. It has to be 100% to be a fact, with no doubts.

A "theory" in science terms is about as close to a fact as science gets, it is a hypothesis supported by so a large amount of evidence. Do you even know that definition?

Evolution is a theory, not a fact, period.

A theory isn't a fact. Get that through your heads. Unimpressed  You call it silly for someone calling evolution "not a fact," but don't realize it's dumb to say it's a 100% supported fact.

You're right when you say we don't have 100% knowledge of evolution, but why should that stop us? We're still learning new things every day. I refuse to accept an answer that states god is the only reason. That to me is saying we're too lazy to even find out for ourselves. Isn't it worth more to die trying to find the answers than to live life under the 'God did it' assumption without even using our brains for comprehension? It may just be me, but gaining knowledge by learning is hell of a lot better than being forced to accept an even skeptical answer that many people by into. With all of the fossils we've seen, it points to the theory of evolution, showing how over time a species can experience mutations. Single celled organisms, like viruses and bacteria, can evolve because they only have one cell. That's why we continue to revise flu shots. Since animals such as us humans have billions of cells, seeing even the slightest change can take thousands upon thousands of years.

One time, a girl said: "Atheists, if evolution is real, then why my dog hasn't become an elephant yet?"
You know how they answered to her?
"Because your dog is not a fucking pokèmon!"
