A religion is something that takes faith to believe in. Due to the fact that evolution isn't science, since science is testable and provable, it is to an extent, a religion. If you believe that the universe has always been there, that is also not provable, and would arguably be a religion.

In the short term, evolution can be tested in various manners. Not all changes come from mutations. Take, for want of a better example, how people have been evolving taller and taller over the last 150 years. According to Scientific American ( https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/why-are-we-getting-taller/ ) Today's humans are approximately 10cm taller than they were during, say, the Civil War. Much of this evolution comes from environment as well as genetics. The availability of food allows our young people to have a better foundation to be healthy and grow taller. Better health treatments in their early years also contribute, as do their parents selection of mates. Generally, a woman will look for a tall, strapping man while a male may look for a woman with wide hips (for delivering babies) and large breasts for feeding the babies. To improve the genetic stock, men will also look at a woman's forehead. For brain power? No. It seems that a high forehead signifies youthfulness, which men equate to healthier offspring. Only one of the reasons why females were often married off shortly after puberty through history.

While SA points out that it is not necessarily a result of evolution, but rather better nutrition in childhood diets, at the same time, that should back up the evolutionary theory. People with poor nutrition in childhood tend to have smaller statures. Extreme examples are abusive parents that have nearly starved their children to death over years. A typical 10 year old may be no taller than a 5 year old. Any way you cut it, evolution allows us to adapt to those instances. I'm average height and my granddaughter just nudged up to be taller than me. My daughter, her mom, is about 3 inches taller than her mom, and so on.

The difference between Religion and Science (which atheists adhere to) is that Science is constantly looking for new answers to old questions, theories, and what had once been "proven" facts. On occasion, they find new evidence. other times, they just reinforce old scientific facts. Religion, however, sets it's doctrine in stone, never questioning it's validity.

This is why I don't like old testament Christians (in a general sense).

So literal, like scientists. Facts are barriers to independence.

A fact is designed so that it can be dissolved, IMO.

Yall keep acting like changes/adaption within a species is proof for one species evolving into another which it is not. We observe these changes within species and who is denying them? But nothing points to a becoming b.

Evolution is the change, or adaptation, within a species that is beneficial for the survival of the species. Both science and the Bible point to mankind coming out of Africa, but as mankind moved around the globe, so, too did the early adaptations that proved beneficial for the survival of their groups. These genes, reinforced over generations, lead us to the various races of mankind. The same is seen in other creatures of the world, as well. Take the Arctic Hare, all white as can be for hiding in the snow. The differences within the camel family that allows the Dromedary and Camel to survive their environment.

Perhaps your perception of evolution is different from that of those that study it. I'm not prepared to give the full lesson on a course whose foundation should have been laid for your understanding at the age of 12. Perhaps you should offer your understanding, or your belief on the subject and why. Then maybe I could explain it better. As we both speak English, this is appearing as if we are speaking different languages

And, exactly, what degree in science does your teacher hold that makes her or him an expert? Has your teacher taught you the basics of scientific method? Ergo: a method of procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses. The modifications are made, not only by the initial scientists, but is corroborated by other scientists in that field of study to see if they can replicate the results. Once the results are corroborated, then it becomes scientific fact until it can be proven otherwise. So far, you've not been able to prove otherwise, but rather, have continued to repeat the oft quoted truism that was used during WWII: "The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success." Read up on it. Your local library should have a copy of the book: Mein Kampf.

YOU keep pointing again and again to microev examples as if you've established it as proof of macro when u have not. You haven't touched yet my point about fossil formation. I cd ask u various questions that you'll likely just dodge. You treat mere assertion as proof. And now ur so desperate u pull out mein kampf! How typical to go to the nazi card LOL smh

Yes. based on what I've read, what I've watched, and the science courses I've taken, I would say, yes. Were it not the case, why do so many animals fall into the various genus catagories. As for evolution, why did the eohippus evolve into the mesohippus then the protohippus until what we see today are the modern horse. Even among the modern horse, there is divergence, each bred to specific duties: draft horses for pulling wagons of heavy loads, the American Quarter Horse is known for it's fast sprints in the quarter-mile and the Thoroughbred, which is known for racing. Breeding? It's a form of man made micro evolution, yet all of them look back to their ancestor, the Eohippus, a three toed horse about the size of a medium dog. Evolution? where did the toes go? Evolution in action moved towards the center toe becoming dominant and the other two basically disappeared. It didn't happen overnight, but evolution occurred to better suit the later horses to their environment.

So far, he haven't offered any facts in rebuttal. Adaptations? They are a part of evolution. Have been from the moment we were single cell beings. It happens today. Some are called birth defects, because, in modern society, the mutations that occur that bring about evolution have to be viable and an improvement over the generations in the past.

Why would micro prove macro? It's a huge leap from one to the other. And maybe it was typos sorry hard to follow but was there a becoming b there or just little a becoming bigger a?

Why would something fossilize as a reult of lying around a long time? Why wouldn't the bones and plants and whatnot not turn to dust? Who honestly comes to the conclusion that loads and loads of things all over the world were magically preserved over vast periods of time by the wonder of wishful thinking? Mercy I lived in a rural area where I saw plenty of roadkill and never thought any of it would end up as fossils. Theists believe in God. Atheistic evolutionists believe in magic. Now a worldwide flood rapidly laying down layer after layer of sediment sure nuff can gitcha some fossils buddy and if you can set aside antibible bias for half a minute...ah but maybe you just can't cuz you hate God so much.

That's not the definition of religion. Science is not blind faith like religion is. Science is not a religion. Science is the opposite of religion. You're confusing faith with inference and hypothesis.

And yes, evolution is science. It is testable and provable (to the extent that something can be scientifically "proven"). It would not be the foundational theory which underlies biology if that were not the case.

While "the power to tax is the power to destroy" holds at least some weight in favor of churches being tax exempt in the end the speech limitations the churches are subject to while 501 3c outweighs that. hushmoney.org Plus the alienation/resentment that can be bred in the community especially when we're talking big property lotsa money churches is both understandable and should be recognized as counterproductive by said churches. But the big churches especially are often pretty corrupt in various ways and it's no shock when they are deaf to such things. Note that this is coming from someone who has been a Christian 30+ years.

I think (s)he's... Right.

This is a paradox in my opinion. My stance is that it IS indeed the minister's job to take your house and your money. It's his/her job to use that money for good deeds (minus minimal expenses).

The church's are fairly corrupt, and I think that's because they lost sight of the point.

Sometimes, some people, gotta go reverse-nuclear.

Atheism is a reverse religion. When I was an atheist, I didn't do atheism, because they could technically be correct, since they have faith in a being I supposedly can't comprehend. Yes. It's a paradox.

The people, and the ministers are indeed people, are often as shady as politicians, because, in a sense, they are exactly politicians.

(As a casual question, to those in the meme-war, what does it mean to be a religious Sargon of Akkad fanboy?)

Also, I had a flash of insight a day or two ago.

Subjects matter is a sassy statement to the little princes and prinsesSays of the world? #Eerie

Cause your KINGDOM was divided against itself and it is LAID WASTE. It is NOW the KINGDOM OF RIGHTEOUS. Undre ONE, YAHUAH, LOVELIGHT, through HIS SON YAHUSHA LIGHT, we serve, and we OBEY YAH only through the SON.
