cheap trick behind the most devastating lie in the history of mankind
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evolution_Poll ^ | 10/15/2003 | self

Posted on 10/15/2003 4:29:25 PM PDT by Truth666

Here are the some of the results of a 1999 Gallup poll on creationism, evolution, and public education :
49% believe that human beings have developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life.
Evolution theory is the most important weapon to twist people's minds.
For 99% of the people the most important REAL reason for believing in it : a trick that costed a few bucks, 100 years ago.
Even more incredible : the trick has remained the same until now.
Only lately, with very fast computers that allow virtual reality software to perform convincing enough, have we seen some effects added to the base trick.
I wonder who is the first Freeper to find out the trick behind the most devastating lie in the history of mankind.

The coin wasn't in your ear, but in the palm of the magician the whole time?

No, the trick is not based on manipulation with hands.

Evolution, yes, but not primarily by natural selection. I am sure of something akin to the old vitalism idea....

"No, the trick is not based on manipulation with hands."

I guess it was manipulation by Bands?


The sad thing is that only 49% of the people polled have a clue.

No it's not a collection. It's a single item. Really cheap.

Money better spent on grammar education, I guess.

Why can't Creationism and Evolution both be right? Who, besides God, was around way back when?

This is a serious question........................

I do believe that God created everything 100%.

In the Bible, it is suggested that the job was done in 7 days.

How long is one of God's days?

We judge time based on the physical movement of the planet earth.

How does God judge the passage of time?
