My problem With The X Men
August 11, 2018 1:25pm CST
The X Men superheroes and villains in Marvel comics and movies are mutants, born with genetic switches that turn them into a new, highly developed level of human evolution. My problem with this is A/. It is too instant a transition. B/. They all evolve quite differently. They are clearly not sharing characteristics in most cases (apart from ocassional siblings like Wolverine and Sabretooth). One X-Man (Magneto) evolves power over metal, another (Storm) controls weather, another (Cyclops) has laser beam eyes. Creationists ask why and how apes could suddenly give birth to human infants, and somehow raise them like (orphaned) Mowgli in The Jungle Book. They didn't of course, the changes were incremental of many generations, but the X Men does suddenly see someone born with wings, while another is born with high mind-reading power. It helps to fuel the myth that new species just evolve in one generation, and great diversity. I end up wondering if Creationists like Ken Ham read X-Men comics and think they are reading the Origin Of The Species.

You might like reading Julian May's Milleu and Exile novels. Creationists drive me right up the walls, they can't cope with science in any way, and the concept of how even time works is baffling. The universe moves slowly, and evolution takes time. I see X-Men as pulp entertainment, right along with Watchmen -- fun entertainment, but that's all. While I am a religious person, I am certainly not a creationist!

the problem i have with a lot of mutant superheroes it the ones that change into monsters or something bigger. number one,where does the extra matter come from,and two i think it would eventually blow their cell structures apart.if they changed and stayed that way,maybe.
