Question: Their beliefs are so often determined by what others say is fact or theory and only a SMALL percentage actually know the study of evolution. Isn't that blind faith? (This is my observation) No disrespect intended you guys are so easily riled...lol

This is a great answer for why so many Christians , themselves, only listen to their Pastors and don't do any research on their Own. A Love Relationship with God is between you and Him and we need to do our part in Reading the Word, daily for more than 5 minutes and the rest of the day is for the Worldly pleasures. I love my sisters and brothers in Christ, but I know there are many who claim to be Gods and never open the book. Why is that?... Probably for the same reason the Atheist don't read Scripture. It is easier to listen to some one else for the facts than study for yourself...YES? I know---I use to do this for YEARS. I never hardly questions ones actions if I have not done them myself.I am only asking and not pointing fingers...I to live in a Glass house.

Not always, there are a few medical standards that just a idiot could deny. Gravity, the legislation of movement, aerodynamics, genetics, so on and many others. I study and emerge as a skeptic over matters that appear some distance from tested, such because the Multiverse Theory. I do not swallow their phrases however I for my part make a decision what turns out logical and what does now not, given the instances of direction. Why should not I believe any individual who has spent their complete existence learning and finding matters, adversarial to any individual like a preacher who simply discovered the right way to learn...

Its the same problem religious folks have: they do and believe what they are told, because ts just easier than the pursuit of personal growth and dedication to advancing their own knowledge. People are naturally resistant to information, past a certain age. and lousy schools make this worse. being told that their schools are teaching them lies just compounds this, by helping to justify their dislike of being educated. Easier just to learn to parrot slogans and idioms, regurgitating whatever is in the scripts they are given. the reason, though, that only a small percentage of atheists understand evolution is that only a small percentage of them are even a little bit interested in the subject. what use have lawyers and salesmen and small business managers for evolutionary theory? not much. less so for the slobs who flip burgers. People participating in the discussion, christian or atheist (or whatever) don't have this excuse in their favor. If one is about the business of proselytizing, one should have at least a layman's knowledge of the subject matter, whether it be science text or religious scripture. contrary to popular belief, being an atheist doesn't mean you have some atheistic religious practice, or an agenda of promoting evolutionary theory. Its just a lack of belief in god, which by itself really doesn't place a burden to be any better educated or more intelligent (though some atheists, like their christian counterparts, prefer to assume they are) than anyone else. thus, its common to find atheists who are versed only in sophistry, or at best in argument from reason, who are not very well versed in evolutionary theory, or physics, or anything, perhaps, but christian hypocrisy. Ignorance is abundant to the point of being infinite, and ubiquitous. and nobody is immune to it.

Largely, it's an unfair burden to put on the believer, so few events in the world are truly directly observable. I have to take a doctor's word on my medical care, the news' word on the weather in Texas, an astrophysicists' word on distant galaxies. In the information age, most of our world is second hand. I work in a field that required a college education heavy in physiology, anatomy, and evolution, so I have had the privilege of working directly with actual evidence and my personal opinion is that the case for evolution will only get stronger (it's pretty strong already) and that 99.9% of criticism of the theory is based on misunderstanding. It is also my opinion that young Earth theories have been thoroughly debunked by absolute dating technology. Take it for what it is worth.

Atheism = Lack of belief in a God or Gods. That is all it means. I was 8 when I realised that God was a myth, I did not have an understanding of evolution then - I just wasn't gullible enough to belief a magic man in the sky poofed everything into existence. I don't have to study evolution to be an Atheist, the two are not one and the same. I just have to be smart enough to know that there is no God. Faith is the belief in that for which there is no proof. There is plenty of proof of evolution, it bears no relation to believing one book, written at a time when man knew very little. One would hope that most people have become educated about the world since then, but clearly that is not the case. Science is taught in schools and religion not for a reason.

Whether they hv or not theres evidence against Ev if u look but many'll do anything 2 keep God out of the equation. The crux of the problem is many (having limited knowledge) try 2 know what God did by imposing human limitations 4 understanding things 2 God's power/abilities. Only 1 God can occupy infinity & that God is the God of Israel so theres no other gods. Its only fully provable b/c Jesus is the true Son of God. Huge holes in Ev (laws of probability says there'd hv 2 b a 95-98% failure rate 4 most changes = no Ev) also call in2 ? the BB/abiogenesis. Evidence 4 God/Jesus/Bible: Just b/c many scientific finds r true it doesnt mean "all" their claims r true (many dont take time & energy 2 carefully think thru things b4 coming out 4 or against it). Many dont take in2 account all it takes 2 create a universe/life (they tend 2 focus on things "seeming" 2 support what they want 2 &/or u 2 believe). In science we established laws of physics. We can't see laws of physics. Rather, we see the results/interpret/apply them in accordance with whats observed 2 b true by experiments/calculations. Same is true 4 God. Just b/c we can't see God doesn't mean He doesnt exist. Theres real evidence 4 some micro-adaptation & 4 some appearance of macro-Ev but most is inconclusive @ best, pure conjecture @ worst. Finding the beginning/reason 4 it all is unattainable by scientific method alone (a billions of yrs old cold case). We didnt see it take place. Things in Creation show an Intelligent Being was involved or the universe/we wouldnt b here (ignoring how it came 2 b). 4 instance: 1. We hv 2 lungs/2 kidneys - each has a near perfect mirror-image companion organ. It cant b explained away. Making a mirror-image organ takes full reverse engineering/knowledge/understanding of its companion's functions & purpose or it cant b created (2 witnesses in nature). 2. Our bodies r highly symmetrical from 1 side 2 the other. Its impossible unless 1 has an outside overview position allowing full knowledge of the entire organism (i.e. feather color patterns). 3. We hv 2 arms/2 legs. Each is perfectly designed/precisely engineered 2 work with its mirror-image companion. An outside position is required 2 fully comprehend the purpose/functions of the organism, 2 create it 2 such perfection. 4. The "being" of a cell is confined 2 within the cell membrane & cant know much beyond itself. A cell is magnitudes more intelligent than all humanity & has amazing powers 2 know all of an organism's functions/purpose or it isnt the "brain" behind Creation 4 many millions of incredibly diverse species. If Ev had a chance of being the source of Creation only 2 or 3 "kinds" of basic bodies with some related species would exist (would take billions of trillions of yrs longer than the universe has existed 2 hv the slightest chance of producing many millions of incredibly diverse species). 5. Many cells of an organism never contact others much beyond its tiny cell. Cells/organisms r just copies of their parents doing about the same things as all ancestors. U wont find a bird who builds a better nest than their parents & their chicks build even a better nest. U wont find a bear improving living conditions passed on 2 his young. Either a cell has 2 lives - 1 copying its parents & 1 secret life working on improvements or some1 of higher intelligence than all mankind created it all. 6. Others point 2 DNA (RNA in the 1rst organisms). But a cell needs DNA 2 function & DNA cant function without a cell. So, we hv a which came 1rst a cell or DNA problem. W/o 1rst having great intelligence/full knowledge/understanding of how an organism is constructed it cant b created. If an ape finds a combination lock he wouldnt know what it was. Even if he turns the dial over & over again he wouldnt know what he was doing & the chances against getting it right is astronomical - especially if it had 150 or more no. 2 find in the right order & even if he got that far he still wouldnt know what a lock is 4. A cell has little "intelligence" & DNA is way more complex than a combination lock (especially in higher life forms) so the odds against figuring out & using DNA (in the correct sequence) is many magnitudes higher than 4 a lock). RNA/DNA r building blocks common 2 all life - having 98% of other species' DNA doesnt prove Ev. DNA like a computer code (but way more complex) requires great intelligence 2 identify & assign its proper order - its useless unless u understand it. Give a book 2 an ape. Its useless 2 him as he cant learn from whats written - intelligence is required. 7. In the fossil record we dont find millions of trial & error organisms that should exist if natural selection or fittest survivor is the source of Creation (no organisms existed b4). The odds r so great against near perfection happening 4 many millions of greatly diverse species, it couldnt take place unless 1 had full knowledge/understanding of what theyre doing B4 millions of organisms could b created 2 such precision. If not true millions of misfit organisms with mistakes, having only 1 or 3 eyes in odd places, 1 leg growing out of a head or where an arm should b or a fin where a leg should b should exist. Millions more misfit fossils should exist than of the perfection found in nature. 8. U won't find species like a horse mating a goat, a frog mating fish, a rabbit mating a dog, a lizard mating a bird, a cow mating a hog, etc. Species with similar genes/characteristics rarely mate in the wild. Only a few succeed @ bearing young. Its very rare that a wild crossbreed/hybrid reaches maturity or can bear over 1 litter (usually that litter cant produce or has complications that kills off the crossbreed). Only human intervention brings more success but even that has lead 2 some bad results. 9. Ev processes being "the" source of Creation is like having a blind man build a car he's never heard of, seen, touched, heard or rode in. It cant b done without 1rst teaching him about the functions/necessary parts & how 2 put it 2gether 4 the car 2 function. 10. Look @ the huge amount of intelligence/knowledge/understanding/tim... & energy used 2 create & improve an airplane's capabilities (& many mistakes). If ppl didnt fully learn what 2 do we'd still b earthbound. 11. Creation is astronomically more complex than an airplane. The more complex an organism, the greater the amount of intelligence/knowledge/understanding needed 2 create it. It can only b done by an Intelligent Designer who already fully understands what He's doing - the sheer complexity of man is evidence of God (airplanes show we're created in God's image - God had 2 b the source of all Creation or it couldnt exist let alone evolve). 12. An incredibly Intelligent Being, capable of building a universe, knows the environment His earthly organisms r 2 occupy. So, He built in adaptability so His organisms could survive various environments. 13. Earth happens 2 b in the best possible orbit 2 support life. It has the right amount of gravity, the right axis & rotation speed, the right atmosphere (& ozone layer/Van Allen belt/magnetic field) & needed amount of water. The moon's the right size & in the right orbit 2 provide tidal cycles needed by organisms. Just 1 or 2 relatively small variants in our orbit/environment & most likely life would b very different & higher forms of life wouldve died off in a relatively short time, if they couldve survived. --- Problem is theres many religions, built on what man wants God 2 b like. I realized they cant all b right (Theres 1 Bible - why so many interpretations? II Pet 1:**19-21). Religion wont teach u much about God (they cant teach what they don't know) but God knows what He's doing. Who knows more about a house, the Builder or those moving in later? Many miss this: Jesus is the only 1 in history who stated He's "the" way, "the" truth & "the" life & no 1 gets 2 God w/o Him (Jn 14:6; 5:39; 10:1,7; Acts 4:12) & is the only 1 who came from God. Its fully true or theres no truth & cant b any God (He knows what He's doing or He's not God). Either Jesus told the whole truth or He's a false prophet, among many, who should b disregarded. Since Jesus is the only way 2 know God, "the" whole truth was complete & finished thru Jesus. So any claimed new or other religious beliefs or from self-proclaimed prophets/ teachers r invalid & wont lead u 2 God. God always knew all Jesus was 2 do. Jesus couldnt hv done nor said whats written in the NT unless He fully knew the entire OT (NT didnt exist while Jesus was on earth). Jesus couldnt hv known the entire OT unless God was with Him. The Apostles couldnt write the NT unless Jesus allowed them 2 remember & know why He was here (Lk 24:25-27,45) - Only God could cause it. Whoever seeks Jesus Christ with all his heart & soul will find God & His Kingdom (u shall know the truth & it'll set u free). U can lead a horse 2 water but u cant make it drink. Why should God want u 2 live with Him 4ever if u dont want 2 know Him His way (reason 4 free will - Jn 1:12-13)? The truth of God remains 4ever unchanged while things of a man dies with him, including his religions/gods made in his image. God hates us b/c of our sins - neither being a good person as judged by men or religion can save u. But God also loves us dearly enough 2 send His Son 2 die for our sins - so that thru Jesus our sins could b 4given if we sincerely turn 2 Him - Theres eternal hope only in Jesus & His Bible. voyc4rmwldrns
