    Hi Snowy,

    I meant all questions in relation to the evolution/creation of life on Earth -- those math answers are not covered by Darwin or Christ. (Most likely the Devil [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img] .)
    I think chance is the great CREATOR in life. In fact I think "god" and "gods" are simply the personification of chance. Have you never had an incredible day that happened just by chance? Have you never met your soul mate only by chance? Have you never found that special plant just by chance? Have you never found a great deal by chance? I bet your life is full of millions of happy accidents all brought to you by the divine nature of chance. It makes life exciting and all so real. I love it. Scarey? You bet. Lonely? At times. Mysterious? Sometimes. But that is nature and we are but a piece of that wonderfully real and earth bound puzzle.
    So you think the Bible seen as history makes it true. Funny, I have always considered poetry to capture truth to a far greater extent than the mere facts and figures of history -- all subject to interpretation and error. Poetry seeks to capture the essence of reality -- it's Platonic nature. Is not that the spine of all religions: to present the meaning of life?

    I just recently devoted my life to Christ and am a strong Christian. I belive in the thrid day that God himself created all plants including, the topic plant, the venus flytrap. Thats one more tally for Christianity.

    No, of course not. You started in Fort Lauderdale and head south, Savanna is north.[/QUOTE]
    Exactly,
    you just proved why your moon and Sun arguements are invalid.
    You were never in Savannah to begin with.
    So starting nowhere NEAR Savannah means you cant interpolate backwards and arrive at the conclusion that you WERE in Savannah 7 hours ago simply because you are traveling away from it right now..

    The moon was never next to the Earth to begin with,
    The Sun was never next to the Earth to begin with..

    well that was easy! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    2 myths down, 98 to go..

    (the remaining 98 are just as easy..)

    I know this won't make me popular, here I go:
    "The Sun was never next to the Earth to begin with..."
    Well, if the sun was never near the Earth, where would the light on Earth have come from quintillions of years ago? There is no life without the sun.

    How could life have possibly started by chance?

    sorta off topic here.

    One creation scientist has one theory about how dionosoars came into 'existence'. All herpers know that reptiles NEVER stop growing throughout their entire life. they grow slowly all of their life, and never stop. There was a large layer of water above the atmosphere, which blocked most harmful lights, and made the enviroment better. all living things lived longer then, humans lived a thousand years or more. Same with reptiles! They would live over a thousand years, never stopping growth. This is why there were such huge reptiles. After the flood of noah, nothing lived as long. reptiles didn't grow huge anymore. This might prove invalid of 'the evolition of dinosaurs' and extinction of them wrong.

    LOL Bobby! I meant suprising to find anywhere these days. I didn't mean you weren't always lucid! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    And my creationist friends here, you're going to have to explain all the millions of years old fossils that form a nice tree of advancing complexity in the development of life. (Heck, for that matter, you're going to need to explain anything being millions of years old&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] If your God didn't make an evolving cycle of life on earth, He certainly made it look like He did.

    Many people think fossils formed at the Great Flood. I dimly remember hearing about petrified trees being found at the bottom of mt. saint helens, in washington, USA. In the 1980s, when it eropted (sp?), 1/3 of the entire volcano was blown off of the mountain, into a lake. Trees on the chunk of mountain were buried, and re-discovered 16 years later! They looked like thousand year old petrified trees. But, in fact, it had formed in minutes! Maybe many creatures were buried by big mud blobs int he flood? I have no proof of this however, so think what you like [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    Many people think that God created the earth and universe, and helped evolution along. This might be possible. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I don't see why several people seem to be taking this discussion offensivly. It is just a discussion of evolution vs creation, there is no winner, people should walk away and believe their beliefs, un-offended. Not in a bad mood, offended.

    I agree Spec. We should be able to discuss this topic openly without judgement of eachother. We're all friends here.

    This is really good to hear Kevin!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    read it carefully and note he gives NO actual evidence to support his viewpoint!! none whatsoever..
    his arguement is basically "the eye could not evolve by chance, because I say so"
    also a lot of irrelevant drivel that has noting to do with the eye at all, like his meaningless scrabble excercise..

    hardly convincing science..[/QUOTE]

    Scot-

    I sort of read through some of the evolution theories on the eyes and i could make the same argument about them. There's a lot of explanations on the eye but all of the info. on how they formed is pure speculation. There is absolutely no proof that the eye formed the way the sites described.

    Hardly convincing science...

    Just because there are different complexities of life found in fossils doesn't mean they all weren't created at the same time and lived at the same time. Even right now we have huge differences in complexities of life ranging from humans to sea sponges. And for an explanation on "millions and millions" year old things i have this. Dating, whether carbon-14 or potassium-argon, is only a guess. There's no way to prove that's it's accurate because the system has not been around long enough. To say that a rock is 1.2 million years old and the system itself has only been around for 50 provides no way to check if the system is correct.
