Their was a enormous discovery in the field of evolution just two weeks ago, and the archeologists working down in Africa found the skull of a man or ape that predates that of an earlier finding 50 years ago by about several million years. I'm sure that mostly everyone here has read about the findings, as they were quite shocking. With that finding, we are getting awefuly close to finding the orgins of man, and putting to rest that god is a myth, just like santa clause, the easter bunnie and witches are in our society.
With the acceleration of scientific data and the the fact that this is the year 2002, how can you not believe in the theory of evolution. Just look at some of the reasons why evolution is the only answer:
1) We used to believe in many gods. Any time that their was an aweful storm or lighting struck primative man believed that it was an act of god. We'll their fears have been proven wrong, as we now know that it's electrical charges in the atmosphere and a change or drop in the atmosphere that causes these violent storms. Or that the tuetonic plates are moving under us that caused the earthquake, not god. Now in our society, we pray to only one god. Eventhough we haven't figured out the answers to this yet, evolution may answer this in due time.
2) How was god born? C'mon does everybody here believe that a god was floating around in the air and said let their be light? haha Very doubtful... Evolution holds the big bang theory and I bet that this is the only true answer. Then the first life organism formed in the Ocean from the suns heat and then life crawled to the shore line and then we orginated in Africa. Then we just evolved so we could survive in our environment, etc.... I'm sure most everyone here would recognize that this might be the only possible answer.
3) Religion has caused extreme bloodshed. Just look at history. The Christians and Muslims have killed each other because of their religious beliefs. Europeans have killed countless American Indians because it's was god's will. If their was a god, do you really think that he would approve of this? People who believe in evolution would never have killed American Indian children because it was god's will. That's just pathetic.
4) Read the bible. What did god suspossedly do? In the bible it states that god was displeased with his people's debauchery so he suspossedly commanded a giant wave, the oceans rose up and wiped everyone out. And they included children, pregnant wives etc... Do you really want to pray to a god that kills innocent children and pregnant women? I'm sure that everyone wasn't a sinner. Sounds to me that myth belongs right up their with the boogie man. :D
With this post I don't mean to disrespect anyone's religious beliefs on this message board, as I just wanted to start up a conservation on why I believe that evolution may be the only answer.
