Do You Believe In The Theory Of Evolution
Posted 5/22/08
i somehow believe that if evolution really do happen, then the process must be controlled by God.
Well, i don't believe that human's ancestor is ape, though.

yeah, well, it just like this, the first living thing, its didn't have any eyes, did it?
well, ive it survived a couple of million years, how come it evolved to have eyes? did it even need to see after millions of years without seeing? you said it adapted to whatever condition it was around. but, you know what i mean? XD

It's not like the monkey just plopped down on earth and we evolved from that. All living organisms are said to have originated from bacteria in the ocean (or something like that) which over time changed and evolved. We've all become what we are today by adapting to our surroundings to meet our survival needs. It may seem farfetched to people, but this supposedly happened over millions of years, a slow and gradual process.

Yes, people want solid evidence that evolution is the reason we are here. But others also want solid evidence that proves God's existance. In the end, it's up to what you believe in. I'm not ruling out the possibility of God, but I lean more towards the evolution theory.

I do. There is some evidence to support evolution. Scientist think they even found the reason why humans changed while apes/monkeys stayed the same.

actually bacteria do have "eyes" its just not really reliable because they use their antennas. also evolution takes time my example of the runner having bigger muscels than normal people. that muscel does not take one night to grow it takes weeks of intensive training and it takes years to keep it. if you stop after a few weeks it will go away but not completely. also the eye factor your stating can be a act of a super being aka "god" you have a point there are alot of unanswerable questions, but who can find an answer? im just stating my theory but seriously the people who are trying hard to conceal this, evolution theory are stupid. seriously i think it was some religious town that banned the teaching of darwins theory. now answer me this; what are they trying to hide thats they need to ban it from schools? my statement is still there saying humans evolved possibly with a little help? who knows i believe in it fully and those people who wouldn't even consider it not even a chance are just arrogant (im probablly arrogant for saying that but at least im open minded to this and there being a "God")

i believe that evolution did happen, but then who created the first "monkeys"? i believe that "God" did make the first animals. which eventually led us to evolve, because from darwins opinion we started with monkeys and monkeys started with some sort of other creature. supposely the very first animals were bacteria, so somewhere along the lines we came from bacteria to monkeys? i dont think humans went that far from evolution. so there is a "God" that created a bunch of different animals, but im guessing if you use the adam and eve theory that means everyone is brothers and sisters and cousins which would be disgusting which means that we came from somewhere else other than adam's rib. so i think darwin was on to something but got lazy and made up a easy solution. if you look at the human body it adapts to its suroundings. like runners have stronger and bigger leg muscels and so on if thats not a adaption then shouldnt everyone's body be the same like physically?

ps: im a buddhist so thats y i put the word "god" in quotations i dont want to offend anyone because people have different names fro their "God"


1. One theory that I know of is that when the earth was still unsuitable for any of today's animals or plants to live in, the atmosphere was mostly carbon dioxide and there were a lot of other organic substances floating around in the water. Eventually these substances reacted with each other in a way to produce a bacteria that could use the sun's light and the carbon dioxide to produce food for itself (photosynthesis). That bacteria made more bacteria, and they kept multiplying, and some of them started joining together to make "super" bacteria (eukaryotes) which turned into the type of cells that we had, and then those cells multiplied and joined together to form larger organisms (plants and animals). From then on all of the various organisms adapted to their environments in different ways, which lead to all of the plants and animals we have today. This took place over millions of years (maybe billions, I don't remember) and since our atmosphere today is much different we can't re-create this scenario to see if it's true. But it does make sense if you understand biochemistry well enough.

2. In the past, before civilization began I guess, humans overall were much more in shape than we are today since all of them had to hunt for their food and avoid predators. But since civilization began, people began exploiting other people and benefiting from their hard work, which caused fat lazy people to develop. Now that our world is much more populated, there's more people to exploit and more fat lazy people to take advantage of them. This is why a lot of Americans are fat, because we have adapted to our pampered lifestyles.

heres a broad list of supposely where we originated from the way beginning: ocean bacteria-some sort of fish thing -some fish lizard- fully lizard thing(explaining the creation of dinosaurs) a bird like thing- some sort of mammal (not sure i think it was a dingo like animal or cat >.>) - monkey- darwin- more evolved darwin- present day man
Like i said this isnt 100% i came up with this VERY broad list from the top of my head i probally missed a giant chunk but its somewhat the idea

well, hey, religious people have their beliefs. If its a religious town, then the elders of that town don't want some theory to run in their minds. Of course, thats just an example. It could also be the fact that they want their grandchildren and great great whatever to keep believing in this religion. Because you see, in the Lords teachings, they can actually tell you how to do things properly, and not ruin your life XD you can learn morals you know XD

They do know, hell even I know. It's because the "monkeys" that lived on the plains began standing upright so that they could move across the flat ground easier. Monkeys that live in areas with lots of trees are hunched over so that they can maneuver through the trees easier.

Yeah, that's why no Christian has ever stolen or raped or killed another being. Only non-Christians do that.
