Resolved: Evolutionism is more believable than Christianity

Evolutionism has been proven in the past, and Christianity is a religion, which we have no evidence about who wrote it, and if it is true or not. Christianity is a belief, and evolution is science, which is supported by many, MANY facts.

Evolution is real and Christianity is real. There is scientific proof of evolution. There is no scientific proof today of Christianity, but there is evidence In peoples lives changing and daily things happening that point to Jesus. you have to separate religion and afterlife compared to science and the changing of the world. They are both believable.

Hmm, I agree with lolzors, that this debate is relatively pointless.
Since Christianity is a belief system and science is the practice of determining reality through controlled testing of human perceptions, to find which perceptions are closer to truthful.
Christianity concepts are not tested, Christians simply, blindly believe in what was written by those that were possibly usurpers thousands of years ago. There's no rational considerations in Christianity whatsoever, the words of such naive scribes are simply considered as absolute truth.
Which is why Christianity, like most religions are entirely Irrational in nature and according to studies into Intelligence, actually reduces a person's Intellect. The intelligence of Christians ranges from very intelligent moderate Christians to extremely unintelligent Fundamentalists. With Religious Fundamentalists being considered as the least Intelligent people on planet Earth.
There is no middle ground between the completely Irrational Christianity (following the Hallucinations of Abraham, Moses and Jesus) and Highly Rational Scientific Evolutionists who only believe in that which has been tested and proven to be Real through continual Verification.
Evolution has been tried and tested by Scientists since it's inception, if numerous attempts by scientists have failed to defeat Evolution, then it has indeed proven it's worthiness to be considered as Truth.
Where Christianity has no such verification, just half cocked minds of the Indoctrinated making blind Assumptions that what Jesus supposedly did and taught was absolutely true, regardless of the fact that many of the teachings of Jesus existed hundreds of years before him and he likely learned them from Asian traders in his region, thus he introduced Buddhism and/or Confucian concepts into his Judaism. Which is basically what Christianity is, a blend of these philosophies.

The problem, and reason why I am hesitant, with accepting this debate is because evolution is not inherently against Christianity. Though I think that evolution is incorrect, it does not contradict the Bible. If you take the Genesis creation story as a metaphor, then it is easily reconciled to evolution. However, with that said, it seems as if this is a pointless debate also. When one honestly looks at evolution, one finds that it is rooted in two philosophies: (1) naturalism and (2) uniformitarianism. Both of these are against the Bible and are clearly warned against in Romans 1 and 2 Peter 3. Moreover, it seems to me that this debate is centered on the notion that we can come to some sort of center ground, taking out our biases and presuppositions, and discuss which one is more believable. However, I would say that this is the furthest thing from the truth. God is inherently a belief-properly-so-called: a belief that cannot be reduced any further. These are beliefs such as believing whether logic is reliable or reality is not a perception. Hence, these beliefs shape our world views and cannot be taken away from us. If you go from a presupposition of not (or ignoring the factor of) God, then of course you will say that evolution is more believable. If you go from the presupposition of God, then of course you will say that Christianity is more believable. And even if we were to come to some sort of center ground, then it would not be beneficial anyways, since sin has infected our entire body, and sin rejects that which is good and true. This is why we must go on faith: faith in God having told us what truth actually is. Regardless as to whether evolution is true or not, our understanding of truth comes from an all-knowing and all-powerful God who loves us, and embodies this love through His death on the cross, which is the release from the bondage of sin, which is based in unbelief. Have faith, my friend! Let the Spirit move in you and give you this faith to see! :)
