I'll restate what I said in another thread, there are two types of people:

1. Those who understand evolution

2. Those who oppose it
Actually there is a third type:

3: Those that understand evolution, but oppose it to make money.

I believe theres something bigger then all of us out there but it isnt god. There are so many religions with so many different gods and since all of you are fully devoted to your religion you have to know that all these gods cant be real. Not sure what proof you have that your christian god is the one that exists. I guess you guys dont believe the fact the world shows no proof of a global flooding that backs up his noahs ark bull****.
All monotheistic religions referance the same g-d, and islams book (im not gonna try and spell it) refereances jesus the most. sorry for ypos broken wrist.) But still, if there is one god, all three religions that fight over things believe in him.

Ohhhh, so now entire parts of the bible are metaphors.

Inconvenient parts at that.

So when life gets found on another planet, is that metaphor also?

Those three cultures interacted throughout history quite often. They exchanged technology and it stands to reason that they also exchanged philosophy/theology. It isn't like they all spawned independently.

I don't really understand what you're getting at...

While I don't agree on the metaphor thing, if life is discovered on other planets It will have no affect on the veracity of the Bible. It's a book about humanity's relationship with God, not another planet's race. What I'll really LOL at is the people who insist we must Christianize another planet. I hope Pat Robertson is around so we can get a South Park-esque Marklar scenario.

Thank you sir. Why can't people separate the beginning of life with evolution is beyond me.

I'm pretty sure the most popular religions would be Hindu and/or Buddhism - since the most populated countries are China and India.

Maybe this was already posted, but in the previous century, doctors used to bleed people to cure disease. Thinking that if they let all the "bad blood" out, that the patient would be cured.

Same applies here. People used what they had around them to make a theory. We now have a greater understanding of those things, so we also make theories that sometimes disprove or reinforce those earlier theories.

I agree. It's no great surprise that his construction of Evolution via Natural Selection was imperfect.

On what type of calendar are you able to squeeze 2 months between 2/16 and 3/12?

This thread hasn't had anything to do with the OP for quite a while, mostly because the OP was stupid.

1) I was the OP
2) What is stupid about wanting to know the name of a conference?

Yet to see a valid argument against evolution, though.

Lol I believe in evolution. Just wanted to know the name of the conference.

How would you go about googling a specific conference that you don't know the name of? Also why would I bother spending time searching when I got my answer after like 4 posts...
