And you simply read something in a book or on the internet and believe it, without question? I've read tons of evolutionary references. You know what most do? They explain and explain and so, "this happened, then that, and then that happened, and here we have it". Never any proof. Nice stories and nice theories, but NO proof.
No, rockv, I do not believe anything without question. Take for example your claim that you’ve read evolutionary references and that you claim that “most” provide “never any proof”. I know that’s a lie because I can prove, aka find plenty of evidence, that you are wrong, with your baseless claims. I can show that most do indeed have evidence that supports their claims, unlike you. In other posts on other threads, you have demonstrated without a doubt that you do not even know what evolutionary theory says, so why should I believe that you’ve read any thing about it, other than what other creationists have told you? Now, if you want to prove me wrong, tell me, in your own words what a theory is and what evolutionary theory states. From your posts, I have plenty of reason to doubt that you know either. You like so many willfully ignorant creationists, create a [wiki]straw man[/wiki] version of what you need evolutionary theory to be so you can have a hope to attack it. This is a classic logical fallacy and shows how deceitful creationist are.
Again, where is the proof? It's rather hard to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt, isn't it? You believe whatever some scientists claims as TRUTH. Dating methods are perfect? It's funny that you think that all Christians are just dumb, narrow minded idiots that believe blindly without question. But then turn around and say, "yea, the Big Bang happened, we don't know how, but it did!!". Who's blindly following something that there isn't a good, rational reason to?
No, rockv, it isn’t hard at all to prove that evolutionary theory is correct beyond a shadow of a doubt, no matter how much you wish it were so. I accept evolutionary theory because it is supported by the same science that you and I benefit from everyday. The laws of physics and chemistry do not stop and start when a theist finds them inconvenient. You can find all the evidence to support evolutionary theory right here: http://www.talkorigins.org/
Now, if you find some of it suspect, give me an example and I can help you understand it.
From your own words, I know that you are willfully ignorant, if not dumb. You have demonstrated that you are indeed narrow-minded since you cannot even take the time to understand the science you attack with such ignorance. You have no more evidence that your god exists than another theist, be they Muslim, Hindu, Wicca, Jew, etc. So, from my perspective, you do indeed believe blindly since you have to lie to support your faith. IF you actually had evidence you wouldn’t have to do that, would you? Now, your ignorance can be fixed, but only if you want it to be. It’s not shameful to be ignorant, but it is when you intentionally keep yourself that way.
The Big Bang theory was initially a hypothesis, based on observations. It was tested and it became a theory because its prediction have proven true and as of now, it is the best fit for what we know to be in existence. Until a better fit comes along, this is what scientists use. Here is the evidence to support it: http://big-bang-theory.com/ http://burro.astr.cwru.edu/stu/cosmos_bigbang.html http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/astronomy/bigbang.html
Plenty of rational reasoning and plenty of evidence. We may not have all of the details but as it stands this is what fits what we see. And the fact that we don’t have all of the details does not mean your god exists.
Now, we have theists all claiming that their particular god was the creator. We have different myths on how these gods did the creation. None of them have any evidence to support them, not the Christian god with the splitting of the void, not the Norse where a magic cow licked giants free of primordial ice, not a god coming from a magic egg, etc. Now, if you want to claim you have evidence of your myth being true, give it. Show me how your story is true and the other myths aren’t.
If you can't, DumpsterFire's observation f iron is quite accurate.
