Yeah, I don't have time to sit around on an internet forum to try to convince a bunch of people that God exists, especially those who start topics like this. If you don't believe, good for you.

Have a nice day.
thought you'd already said you'd had enough of this topic and were going. nice of you to come back and say it again.

You don't have to convince us that God exists. Some people do, some don't. Just don't go around like a headless chicken yelling "Evolution is only a theory lalala I can't hear you".

You can't convince people God exists. If you believe in a god, it is because you take it on faith. When you try to present faith as evidence, you hit a rock wall; as you should. Faith is not evidence. All the faith in the world doesn't even come close to the evidence that is found in one simple fossil.

If you believe, it is because you have faith. Even if you believe it wholeheartedly, and it is the singular force of your being; it still doesn't exist beyond your person. It is real to you, but that doesn't make it real to anyone else.

Also, passive aggressiveness is bullshit.

The question isn't if God exists, the question is why the theory of evolution contradicts the concept of God.

The real question is why science rejects the idea of God in the first place.

Re: Why are Creationists so afraid of Evolution?

Funny thing is I don't believe in god, I just think it's silly at best to apply the same circular arguments against those who believe the non-believers so often rail at being used against them.

I'm right because I am. You're stupid if you ask why!!!

But so much easier to attack the people, right?

science likes evidence. the real question has just been answered.

tangent: if god made everything perfect and incompatible with evolution, he also created the majority of the planet's population to worship other gods. which makes god an imbecile.

It doesn't. Science is our best, evidence-based, explanation of the natural world. It neither promotes or denies gods existence. Science = Science; Religion = Religion

If it makes you feel better you may wish to think of it as science tells us the how, religion tells us the why

Science doesn't reject the notion of a god. The issue is that there has been no evidence to suggest that one or more exist. A scientist can have a personal faith, but injecting faith into science takes away the science in favor of the faith.

You can have faith a bridge won't collapse when you drive over it; I'd rather have the science behind it's construction, instead.

I'm right because I have 150 years of observation and experimental evidence to support me (no evidence has even suggested that evolution doesn't occur)

You're stupid not if you ask why (that's actually very clever), but if you don't want to know why

"Science" does nothing of the sort. The question whether God/s exist/s is simply outside the field of interest.

Easier than actually learning about the subject, that's for sure. It's not like the evidences for evolution are super-secret or anything. Just crack a book and educate yourself.

When you have empirical evidence on your side, yes, it is really easy.

Applied genetic selection is not evolution.
In a sense, it is. It's called Artificial Selection-- it's sort of the technology to evolutionary science. It also demonstrates that Humanity has been aware of evolution to some degree for thousands of years.
