    where's satanist?
    I have just returned from a party of which I was the life and soul; witty banter flowed from my lips, everyone laughed and admired me - but I came away, indeed that dash should be as long as the radii of the earth's orbit wanting to shoot myself.

    I for one cannot see how many following the christian faith in general could not grasp the idea of evolution as a means of illustrating the glory of 'god's' creations...
    If, by the 'sceince of eveolution' you're referring to physical development/change in living things (for example a certain plant/animal changing in its structure/design/colour over time), then Id agree (and I think most Christians would as well) but if you include in it the theory of man having developed from monkeys (to the exclusion of creationism) then Id care to differ.

    science of evolution is based on interpretation of evidence for evolutionary theories.
    the evidence may point to their theory, but that sometimes involves excluding evidence that points against it, or rejecting that the evidence may point somewhere else.

    and yes, it is only a theory, a theory that is always under contention and is always changing, so i don't have much trust in it.

    i'm a christian, i think some ppl here already know that .

    chudymaster: just read the first chapter of the bible - go to bible.com and read it, quite a short read. the order of creation given in it is different to the order of evolutionary change (for one example).
    some ppl disregard it as poetry, but i don't believe its in poetic form (when compared to other scripture that is in poetic form)

    yep, there are many evidence against evolution...for one, they scientists still haven't witnessed a mutation that can add new information to the genome of a species- this is what evolution relies on (i.e a single celled creature evolved into a human being!!

    Out of curiosity, i joined a teenage satanism e-group about a year ago, just to see what satanists are like and what their opinions/beliefs are...

    Needless to say, they wasted no time in telling me where to go! Got some pretty nasty responses [esp. since i'm a christian - sorta had to expect it!

    so, i promptly left the group, and left 'em to it...
    it was sad

    there's a difference between EVOLUTION and ADAPTATION. Adaptation is the ability of species to change to suit their environment (darwinism), and it hs been proven. Evolution is the theory that all life forms evolved from basic fundamental particles - it hasn't ben proven.

    There are some Christians who believe in evolution, some in creation and some in both. Me, I can't decide...I don't really know enough about the topic to call it either way - I'd go for both, leaning towards creation at this stage.

    Oh, and the Bible has two different orders of creation (genesis 1 and 2) suggesting that its the events and not the order that are important.

    By the by, I'm a Christian...

    *puts on sunnies to shield from glare* lol, well there are hundreds of "religions" out there, but only a max of 10 poll options, and i wanted to keep it simple.

    So i picked the 5 main world religions - anything else has to fit into either "other" or "none"...

    Luckily the christians were unable to convert everyone they met, although why they sought to destroy age old beliefs is beyond me.

    Christian. I'm I guess what you would call a strong believer and I do go to church and stuff like that. But isn't christianity really about developing you relationship with god and jesus. I would also like to challenge all the people out there who say that they are strong believers but don't go to church-
    1. don't you think a church would benefit and grow because of you.
    2. the scripture passage about the coal being away from the fire- eventually it's going to smoulder out

    Just something to think about
    No one can make you feel inferior without your consent

    1. A church does not depend on numbers to benefit and grow as it is not a place of business ... A church can consist of two people and Jesus will be there.

    2. Matthew 13:22 (The Parable of the Sower)

    The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.
    WOT are you torque'n about?
