Sorry for the interruption. This thread was split off and made the commentary thread.
All commentary of the "Evolution: Christian on Christian action" is to be made here.
Me vs BS on Evolution? Sounds fun.
UP- What is your position on this topic?
I agree with evolution.
I think it's a fantastic scientific theory, that we aught to keep using it and keep teaching it to our kids.
I don't think it's perfect, but I think it's at least as accurate as the Quantum Model of the atom. It's a scientific model that holds up impeccably and is wonderfully predictive of truth. We might one day find a model that describes the movement of electrons or how we got here better, but we don't have that theory yet, and when we get there, I expect it to be a refinement of evolution, not an abandonment of it.
And just to be clear... Yes I'm talking about "Macroevolution" too.
I do believe God created, I think he did it through evolution (just like i think he make Loihi trough volcanic eruptions)
I believe Genesis is the word of God, I believe it's first chapters are mostly figurative, and i believe that if you and I go through it together with an even keel and a sound mind, you'll realize you believe those chapters are mostly figurative too. We're arguing over a difference of about 10% of the language being figurative. You think It's about 40 or 50% figurative already, I think it's more like 50 or 60%
