    What are you trying to say?
    That the above mantra is quite contradictory when it comes to your beliefs and positions about religion.[/QUOTE]

    You mean baseball and faith aren't the same thing? And I can't have different rationale for both? Whaaaaaaaat?

    I know when you use the word "theory" you automatically assume it's settled science and therefore not up for debate. When I use the word, I am meaning that a group of people propose that something might have happened in a certain way but it still cannot be proven without a doubt.

    What will you do when evolution is proven false? I mean, it's been around for almost 200 years (Darwins form anyways) and it still hasn't produce any transitional fossils... which Darwin said would be plentiful.

    How long will you cling to this religion of yours?
    Darwin was wrong. You won’t find transitional fossils. Evolution is too slow and incremental.

    Not trolling. I have a friend who recently "found religion" for lack of a better term. It amazes me at how it transformed her life - real talk. I consider myself curiously agnostic, but not gonna lie, I wouldn't mind getting a transformation similar to what I've seen occur with her. I think religious conviction is not only something you can't be born into (my mother is Jewish and people tell me that means I am Jewish - I think inheriting religion is a load of crap), but it's not something you can fake yourself into. It's gotta be real or whatever, something it is nowhere near with me.

    Me and her like to debate science vs religion and existence and all that good stuff. One answer I have not been given a solid response is to that of the existence of Dinosaurs.

    What say you, my religious peoples?
    Here's your answer.

    Dinosaurs are not real. They were put here by the devil to test our faith.

    I went to the Creation Museum and I saw plenty of great evidence of their existence and plenty of exhibits that convinced me that man and dinosaur walked the Earth together God created them on the 6th day.

    It was basically a ****ing dinosaur museum

    Have you seen Ken Hamm's ark?

    Nope. I'll be in the Lexington area early next year and plan on making the trek. I love going to those places and just taking it all in. The people watching is fantastic.

    Ha ya I hear you. I would do the same thing. I just watched a video of Ken Hamm and Bill Nye walking through it and debating. It was rather entertaining.

    In theory, that slow process is a "transitional" fossil, since in theory we are all in the midst of evolving

    Having said that, I don't think any transition fossils actually exist, I think everything is speciated and we assume transition must have taken place (based on various logics and facts). From what I've seen, most transition fossils are just recreations based on what we expect, rather than coming across an entire skeletal structure that shows a cow turning into a whale, or a unicorn into a human, or whatever

    what does this mean to you?

    Orangutans share 97 percent of their DNA sequence with humans.

    What does it mean to you? We share probably 50% or more of our DNA with virtually any organic material in existence. It's sort of like saying ubuntu shares much of its code with a 16 bit gameboy game. Sounds neat and all but doesn't mean much except as classification, and it sure as hell doesn't mean one came from the other (which of course they didn't, in both cases).

    It means we are more closely related to an ape than an iguana. Why is that? If God created all creatures individually, why are some more alike than others unless they are related. It means that subtle changes in DNA structures can cause noticeable structural differences in mammals in terms or prominence and function (opposable thumbs etc), but really we are not so different that you'd find "transitional fossils.
