So, I'm not a religious person, I prefer to believe science.

I have noticed that some religious people, (maybe just the extreme ones?), just... deny science?

For instance, the evolution theory, it makes sense, it's proven to be true, an yet people are still in denial?

I mean, I get it that people are attached to stories like that, but I personally believe they were rather written to teach lessons, not to be interpreted as facts!


Awhat do you guys think about this? Wwould people believe science, which can be proven, over some stories with a moral?


Othat's all, thanks for answering!

1st: Welcome.

Now... to your post: One of the primary reasons that the religious do not like "evolution" is that they are typically confused.

The religious for the most part think that "evolution" is a theory (or theories) about the formation of life on planet Earth. This is, obviously, incorrect. "Evolution" is about what has happened to life after life was created/formed on planet Earth.

In addition (as an example), even if one believes the christian creation story, the evolution of animals is a 100% certainty. All one has to do is move forward in time from the flood and look at all the animals that live today... clearly all (or at least the vast majority of) animals would have had to have developed and diversified from earlier forms since the flood.

In addition, even if one (somehow) believed that none of the more advanced forms of life developed and diversified from earlier forms since the flood, "we" have and continue to observed the developement and diversifying of single cell organisms on a regular basis; i.e. evolution.

This is actually a no brainer...

That is, one can argue (with some degree of intelligence) how life was formed/created; god, gods, science or some combination.

However, to argue that "evolution" did not and does not exist is moronic and flies in the face of rational thought.

Evolution in no way contradicts the idea that "god" created "everything", and in now way contradicts the Bible... or any other religious holy book.

Still many of the religious will argue with you from a "god created life" perspective.

Up ahead the ways you're going to being applying Science to Religion and a lot of your video games and song lyrics will being to finally start making an uncomfortable sense that you're not ready for yet.



A 'Talking Head' is a term for someone who poses to have control in government but really only serves as a pretty face for the public to address when the real people pulling the strings; making decisions hide shadows.

This is ironically somewhat relevant to another type of literal 'Talking Head'

The molecules needed for life are ubiquitous and fload in space. These basic components of life surround and land on planets. If a planet is conducive the molecules form the amino acids and develop into life.
