A thread to discuss it, debate it, even dismantle both sides of the coin and then build them back up again.
The age old question > Creation Vs Evolution
Fence sitting welcome!
Respect for the individual putting forward an argument would be appreciated while you address ther points.
The discussion is not for there to be a 'winner', it is not to present white with black.
And it not an attack on 'faith'. Many scientists can, and do have faith in 'something'.
Sharing knowledge and understanding, whilst it may get heated is healthy.
I also understand some people may not want to come in and actually leave post for what ever - hitting the 'thanks' button is also seen (in my eyes) as participating, and I'm all for that!
...okay I typed 'What do you think?' here
- Maybe 'DISCUSS' is more appropiate.
[**personal disclaimer, yes I may seem obsessed - but I have allowed myself a lazy weekend **]

Evolution is a solid winner for me due to ample evidence. However, I have had the extra benefit of studying archaeology and being about to see parts of the fossil record first hand.

I cannot fathom believing in creationism. I just cannot get my mind around it... my brain goes, "Wtf?" when I even try to consider it as a possibility. My brain just finds it so unlikely... so impossible... so wrong. I don't know why, I just cannot even consider it as a possiblity... it just seems absurd to me.
I know this could potentially come across as offensive, and for that I apologise, but I can't really explain it any other way. My mind just cannot comprehend why that would even be a possibility.
I haven't spent much time looking into evolution though, because in all honesty, I've never felt a strong desire to know HOW the world came about. I just don't care. I don't need answers either way... but the theory of evolution at least makes sense within my head... it at least seems possible and even rather likely...

Evolution. But I do believe in God, although don't follow any organized religion. My belief system is closest to Christianity though.

= the questions I find should never be shut down with the response, 'because it just IS'
I encourage my children to ask these questions (yep even if it's as basic as to why they should clean their room ..because there will always be a reason 'why'...and helps to understand why we do things)
This applies to the world around us too.
for example ...If my kids ask why butterflies drink from flowers - I like to explain to them how they evolved over years along side the plants ...as insects their 'jaws' have fused together over time to make a 'straw' - this straw gets deep inside the flower and helps them suck up the nectar.
We appreciate the beauty in that.
I don't think it would be fair to their questioning mind to just say, 'someone just made them like that'.
I DO say 'I'm not sure.." .plenty of times - and then if we have the time to investgate it - we investigate it by looking at books, watching documentaries etc.
Sassy - my DP is just like you.
