Creation or Evolution: Does it really matter what you believe?
29 Apr 07
I don't think there is any relation between evolution and Creation, Creation of this world by God is based on fact, for which proofs are given in Quran, as only man of understanding can get an idea from it, speaking about Evolution first of all i have changed the paragraph, now i will tell you about evolution, evolution is based on hypothesis, you can understand its meaning from dictionary, evolution starts with hypothesis and ends up with hypothesis , if you are really interested in it, gain some science knowledge, and attend talks of evolutionist people, you will enjoy a lot, by listening to there talks, fairly tail hahaha hahaha

If you are tired of being mired in myth try a little education. Your Qur'an is no more a science textbook than the Bible. They are both mythological story books. If you believe that, how about the Easter Bunny? Try reading some of this. http://evolution.berkeley.edu hahaha yourself!

Of course, chiang, the Easter stuff is not a biblical idea and practice. The Catholics just borrowed it from the greek myth. They have mixed the Bible and the myths. Not just the easter but many more, including the mother and child worship whic originated from ancient Babylon. The Catholic is a mix of pagan.

Oh yeah,for me it really does, because evolution cant be proved and it just doesnt make sense , i mean so th esurvival of the fittest, we can find thousands of animals, just so not fit and also the dinosaurs...were they not fit??of course they were, and then if they were here, we wouldnt have been here....and for me creation gives peace and hope, hope about the future, hope that if i am in troubles, there is much more mighty up there, who created us nad will take care of us. i belivev in hope and a life everlasting.so sure does make alot of difference, even to the one who created us.

I'd say it matters a lot. It's the fundamental question whether you accept the scientific method or not. It's a question about whether you accept science which has made our life so easy and good compared to when we lived in caves. In my opinion there is simply a huge fundamental gap in the world view between those that believe in creationism and those that "believe" in evolution (note I put it in parenthesis because one doesn't believe in evolution as if it was some religion). That doesn't mean though that either group is somehow bad or they can't interact etc, far from it. To me it's utterly ridiculous to believe that some God stepped down and created the universe in 7 days, science is what has done a great job of explaining the world around us, it obeys some laws by reason and can be challenged, religion can not.

No, God might not exist and hence this God you speak of might not have made any rules at all. I don't want to go too deep into defending evolution, simply because people like Richard Dawkins have done it so much better than I can do here on the blogthread but let's give it a try, shall we? So you say that the believe in evolution is in some sense a religion. Now evolution is based on science, it is the best theory that science has come up with to explain our surroundings, supported by so many observations and experiments that it has been accepted by the scientific community. Claiming evolution is a religion then you are claiming that science and the scientific method is in some sense a religion. That is way off. The scientific method is based on experiments and nothing becomes a theory unless you can disprove it. Religion is not the same. Most religions have some supreme being and their worldview is somehow tied to that supreme being and nothing of the dogma can be proved. Huge difference.
