Creationists vs Evolutionists

October 15, 2012 8:38am CST
I'm having a hard time understanding why some people can't admit evolution exist. Is there anyone that can make a logical argument for creationism? We have seen with our own eyes that certain species of animals can and do evolve, so why would it be so unbelievable to believe we have evolved from a primitive species?

Maybe you are right. I don't believe creationist, but also evolutionist doesn't have firm evidence to prove your opinion. or, you can tell me how we evolved from a primitive species?

The proof is in the fossil findings. You can clearly see there were less evolved species of humans in the world.

Well, that is not proofed that they evolved to humans.

How is that nor proof? They share similar characteristics to today's humans. The ability to walk on two feet. The higher brain function. I believe the human species is in for another evolutionary period soon. Have you noticed children are much bigger these days?

Hi PhiilyDreamer, you have posted an interesting topic here but your assertion can't be proven. Yo are believing in a doctrine that is proven wrong over and over again. Your topic is evolution right? What kind of evolution do you exactly want this discussion will focus on. I will be glad enough to monitor this forum, just settle what kind of evolution do you want us to specifically discuss...looking forward for an intelligent discussion here.

I'm talking specifically of human evolution. Why is it so hard to believe we are not the evolved form of early primates?

Simply because it is the impossible thing. human evolution is an unfounded theory, and again a theory that couldn't be proven by intelligent and scientific reasoning. How much funds were spent o document the missing link they've brought about? how much effort were implore to justify blind assertions? We cannot calculate them but until now, it remains an unproven theory.

It sounds to me like you are in denial of the evidence that is there. Honestly there is no proof of creationism at all. Why is that so much easier to believe?

I don't believe in evolution, sure I studied it in school, because I had to it was a part of the course, but I don't believe it. I was created by the almighty God. He created every single animal and species that there is on this earth. He created man in his image, man didn't evolve from nothing. God created man. I don't know of any species of animal that evolved from no other species. The Bible states that there is nothing new under the sun. What is on this earth today has been here since creation. If there was anything to man evolving from an ape, why didn't all apes evolve? And why did other species evolve and others not? You can't create something from nothing. Any new species of animal that they are finding today is a species that has been here all along, the reason they're being discovered now is because man is branching out further and destroying more of the creatures habitat and forcing them out into the open. I'll pray for you nonbelievers.

I really can't debate with you on the issues if you are going to close your eyes to the truth.

I'm not the one that has my eyes closed to the truth. My eyes are wide open and one day yours and all the other evolutionists will be as well. Some people like to walk around with blinders on. They chose to wear blinders so they can only see what's in front of them and won't be distracted by the truths that surround them. What gets me is why someone would rather believe that they evolved from apes rather than believe they were created by the almighty God.

While the evidence that supports the fact that evolution has occurred and is occurring is overwhelming there is not a shred of physical evidence that supports the idea of creation. The evidence is in your blood. The decoding of the human genome removed any doubt as to the process of evolution. de omnibus dubitandum

Evolution is not well explained, they have a lot of mistakes and some proofs they had were proofed wrong, I don't know what kind of creationism are you talking about, but some part of them believe that God used evolution to create, other part believes that evolution has not proofs of anything. Now a days you can see a lot of new theories of how life started and how matter was create, and even how life came to Earth from other planet in a comet. thank you for you discussion, I was thinking about that and you came out with this discussion.

the primitive humans like you said, don't live anymore, but modern humans were found in the same layer as the primitive humans. I know some creationists that believe in evolution, but that God used evolution to create.

Carbon dating can determine the age of the bones. If the time periods don't match, all that means is that the excavation site was compromised. That's hardly proof in the contrary.

to be honest, darwinism is as easy for me to believe as telling me aliens helped bring us along the evolutionary chain. that would account for the missing link. as it stands, i do go with evolution without alien intervention. whatever is the truth, the creationist one is a load of boll0cks that even a retarded monkey would find hard to believe. (which would prove the theory wrong once and for all) when it comes to god worshipping, i can never understand why one single god religion makes such a big splash. the greeks and romans had it right when they had a seperate god for nearly everything. that makes more sense to me rather than our one god in charge of everything. no wonder god does not stop disasters, he must be knackered trying to run everything!

I have no problem believing the building blocks of life came from another world, but at some point the single celled organisms that were the first form of life had to evolve, otherwise there would be nothing here.

What I have a hard time understanding is why so many people insist that it must be one or the other. Why can't it be possible that God created us (the building blocks) and used the process of evolution to get us where we are today?

I would blame human exceptionalism, lack of understanding, and a worldview bias for the rejection of evolution. People don't accept it's true because they don't want to accept it, not because it's unbelievable.
