Now I understand: Creationism vs. Evolution

Posted on 11/09/2009 12:31:42 PM PST by Cousin Eddie

Figures that I would learn this from my wife (who heard it from another woman):

A little girl asked her mother, "How did the human race appear?"

The mother answered, "God made Adam and Eve and they had children, and so all mankind was made."

Two days later the girl asked her father the same question.

The father answered, "Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved."

The confused girl returned to her mother and said, "Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?"

The mother answered, "Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his."

God made the monkeys that turned into humans. Adam and Eve were actually monkeys.

(I’ll take cover now) LOL

Humans are not descended from monkeys or apes. It’s a common smear that’s levelled against evolution, however.

It was a cute joke.

As a rule, the atheists among us believe in the descended from monkeys as a release from feeling guilt for things they may have done, harmful things done to others, and they desperately want to abdicate any responsibility and deny the judge.

Still, the joke was really cute.

sadly, evoluitiionists believe that humans are related to oak trees if you go back far enough

Even whales, somewhere in the middle...

ok count me in as a “fellow” atheist. for me i don´t feel “guilty” for nothing. i would only feel guilty for things i have done. and since i have not done “really” bad things in my life (at least i can sleep while knowing what i have done) why should i see it diferent?
greetings

If you want to convince yourself you’re just an acorn off that tree, tell yourself. But don’t tell me it’s science.

It is a religious belief with zero evidence.

At least by observation, Creation is the ONLY logical path to scientific truth. Evolution is unobserved, inobservable, and unprovable but claims to be science

Creation claims to be unobserved, inobservable, it just also claims to be recorded in it’s basic form: The Bible

Evolutionists show they not only have problems with science, but with God.

"that humans are related to oak trees"

One or two of us can even be described as a fungi!

“...humans are related to oak trees...”

I’ve seen a lot of posts from humans who come across as wooden headed.

So every time a deadly virus suddenly appears, it’s not that it evolved from an existing germ, it’s actually God dumping it on the populace (since only God creates life, according to you)?

Why would he do something like that to innocent people?

Oh, that's right...{smacks forehead}...we evolved from pond scum.

No offense intended to you, but many murderers sleep well at night. That’s the nature of a sociopathic personality.

Neither side in the debate can prove it’s premise, although you think you can. So, why are you placing all your chips on the premise that life is without meaning?

And why do so many atheists reflexively go left?

And why do so many atheists reflexively believe the death penalty should be abolished and even the most heinous murderers released after a dozen years? I mean, if atheists are right and there is no life after death and no judgement after death, why would atheist then push for the belief that, yeah, life in the here and now is of no value either.

If the atheists are right, then a murderer really offended the victim’s family and the society at large. So, why do atheists take a soft stance on murder?

Of course, I’m talking about your average every day atheist. Hitler and Stalin, as atheists, where up and running on the concept of death camps and cruelty, but that too is attributable to their atheism.

Like the atheist said, if there’s no God then there’s no God given rights and man is a slave to the state.

Sometimes it’s so easy to get sucked into this most useless of useless discussions.
