Evolutionism v Creationism
I understand mankind's need to believe in a greater being to help guide them through uncertain times. I myself do not need guidence in my daily decisions. However, what really irks me is that a large majority of devout catholics and christians as well as a few other religions believe that our earth is only ten thousand years old and that either dinosaurs didnt exist or that mankind existed alongside the dinos. To me that is complete ignorance, to say that you and I, as well as every other living being, were created in six days promotes false information and teaches blind faith. The fact that Creationists are still fighting to have Creationism tought in public schools presents itself as a gi-effing-normous problem.
To say that life is too complex not to have a divine creator is preposterous. Evolution explains precisely how life got to be so complex. Go back to the first living thing on Earth. It's thought that it was a single-celled organism, EVOLUTION was a way for that living organism to adapt, grow and prolong its lifespan, it evolved into many different species all specific to their own unique environmental situations.
How can they, the Creationists, say that our current intelligence, ingenuity, and resiliency was programmed in us one night or a six night span. We are how we are by neccessity, and that is THE answer as I see it. To me Creationism is but another fairy tale out of Mother Goose's story book.
I did not intend to offend anybody. If I did then, my bad. That's just how I feel.
Take yourself to higher places.
