Servant of Christ, let's talk about Evolution vs Religion because we know that there is more proof for Evolution than God.


Evolution is religion disguised in science my friend. It is the religion of 'self'. Evolution takes away purpose, thus indulgence results. It justifies every immoral action ever. How can you say evolution is true? Why, evolution contradicts the second law of thermodynamics. The Law of Entropy. Not, theory, but law. So, my friend, how can nothing become something, something become life, and then life become more advanced? It is contradicting the law that things will go from order to disorder, yet evolution teaches the opposite!

I myself believe that humans have been evolving for about two million years and still are and that we are like apes. I don't accept any religion because they have caused too many wars and there is no proof of God existing.

But what if what you believe is wrong? The 20th century was when religion started declining. We have had two world wars and a host of evil things happen (Khmer Rouge, Holocaust, Russian purges). Pol Pot, Stalin, Stalin, Hitler, and all those people, paid their debts to evolution. Religious wars? People use religion as an excuse for war in most cases. Those wars are usually for land or conquest.


Anyway in the Bible your God Jesus says that he created the universe 6000 years ago which of course they is no proof of and that the earth is flat and that dragons use to exist and deaf men were possessed by devils and that the sun goes round the earth and that the earth is the centre of the universe and that stars falling from the heveans, now how dumb is Jesus he must have been very stupid to say all this in the Bible.

That is one way of interpreting it. I interpret it this way, but it makes sense if you accept Noah's Flood as an actual historical event. Dragons exist? Where on earth did you get this? I know Catholics accept this but I do not. If you are talking about the Dragon in the Book of Revelations, then you are misinterpreting the text. I can expand on the point about demons later if you wish. Where did you get that the sun goes around the earth? Stars falling from the heavens? Are you unable to understand metaphorical readings?!? Do you honestly expect the Jews, 2000 years ago, to have any concept about meteors or comets???

Conclusion:

All religions are fake and dumb. There is no God but evolution.

I'll gladly debate you about religion and atheism. Do you wish to accept? If you do, answer this question, do you believe that there are absolutes in this universe?

John

May God Bless You All
