i've seen this email like a hundred times already. it's a great story, but your title is misleading. the chance of anyone disproving all of the theory of evolution is very slim.

i'm christian myself, but any hard belief in theory of creationism by anyone in the scientific field died out a long time ago. not sure where you were going with the title.

the beginning is good... a great argument.

when that student starts his argument about all those craps. it is safe to say, such things are obvious and the way he make it sounds like its so not obvious. the writer, whoever that might be, made the professor look like a moron. any professor should be able to argue with what that student said for we can see proof, easily. evolution? well, it is true we dont see it happen, but we can see it happen, visually. the bones we found clearly shows a evolution. also, we can mutate cells in labs. is that not evolution. totally, the guy who wrote this story made the professor look like a moron in the second half.

it is true to say that cold is the absence of hot. but why can one not say hot is the absence of cold? there is no definite in such kind of argument. on the other hand, when the professor started his argument, he clearly used the religious bible and such to defend his views ---such things in which those christians morons study. yet, being a christian, the guy uses twist of logics to make his view sound like science. it is absolutely true that such thing is not science.

philosophy, like the student said, is full of flaws. it is to teach people how to think, not to teach people what is right.

also, the professor can clearly ask the student back the same question he did about the brain. also, after that, he can take the student to see some real brains. hence, that brain argument is illogical.

clearly, the author portrayed the professor as a moron in the second half. evil? there is no such thing as evil. philosophy by mencius clearly stated such and i totally agrees with him. if the professor is indeed a philosopher, he ought to know such famous quote and can clearly get out of such idiotic reasoning.

"Evil exists to glorify the good. Evil is negative good. It is a relative term. Evil can be transmuted into good. What is evil to one at one time, becomes good at another time to somebody else. " - Mencius

lastly, evil is the absence of god? why dear sir, what is god? and if there is an absence of god, then why believe in god? also, if the writer meant to say, using the professor's mouth, that evil is everywhere, then it is obvious with the response that he screwed for i can see that he is a religious person, hence, if evil is the absence of god, then with what he said that evil is everywhere, that means god is nowhere. really, failed.

What a stupid professor, he just fell for an obvious trap. Plus, both of them presented arguments that are easily refutable.

Anyway, I'm a cristian but I prefer faith to proof. Just think if god actually talked to me people would try to have me committed.

How the fuck is evil the absence of god when god doesn't exist?

None of this "You can't see your brain so it must not exist" bullshit. My mate cracked his skull open so hard that he had surgery. They showed pictures of his brain. It exists.

Here's a question for you then. There is a teacup, floating between here and mars. But it's so small that no one can see it. But it exists. I know it exists.

Amen to that, I read a couple lines and stopped.

It's not that it was long, but the fact it seemed long AND pointless. Also contributing to me deciding to stop reading was thinking the thing was trying to prove something about how great God is and how science is probably just bull shit, I first thought this when I saw the word Evolution spelled wrong in the title. Hell, I'm not sure if it is about how God is so great, I didn't finish reading it.

If it's a story making god look dumb, I don't care. If it's a story making god look great, I don't care. It seemed so god damn pointless.


It's basically about some dumb atheist using the "you can't see him so he's not real" argument, then the student using the "you can't see your brain so it's not real" argument. Then it goes on to say that they both only know what they know through faith, and that the kid's faith in God is stronger than the atheist's faith in science, so God must be real.

Just another religious person's half-assed attempt a proving that God exists by trying to make atheists look dumb. Which, I'll admit, a lot of us are.


Actually it's religious people (in general) who are dumb.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religiosity_and_intelligence#Studies_comparing_religious_belief_and_I.Q.

"Literally-oriented religious Believers did not differ significantly from Mythologically-oriented Believers on measures of intelligence, authoritarianism, or racial prejudice. Religious Believers as a group were found to be significantly less intelligent and more authoritarian than religious Skeptics."

93% of scientists are agnostic or don't believe in god.

that is retarded.
if god is not omnipotent then he should not be called god
if god is omnipotent, then there should never be an absence of god
thus the argument of evil being the absence of god fails

No versus threads allowed and this subject has been covered numerous times.
No more religious threads allowed either.
