  • They won't, but it's time that they should. People have stopped bothering to prove evolution, but that doesn't make the evidence stop existing.

  • YES, and its not really that extreme, 200 years ago most churches in America were like the Westboro Baptist Church and now the pope supports (at least to an extent) Gay Marriage, this shows how much the church has changed, and the evidence for evolution is undeniable so there really is no reason not to accept it

  • It's a fact. Accept it.

  • Yes. Evolution is as close to a fact as we're ever going to get. It happened. Fossils show it. DNA shows it. Observations show it. Similar bodies show it. Logic shows it. Refusing to accept it is just refusing to accept science and logic.

  • Thank you Captain Obvious

  • It will never happen, religion is simply too common. Also, evolution is also only a theory and is developed with extremely scanty evidence.

  • Not at all. The entire theory of evolution is not proven. There are pieces of the theory that are proven, such as what is commonly called "microevolution". Though the larger picture of "macroevolution" is still debatable.

  • It is up to individuals to accept evolution. Religions can preach whatever they want.

  • Its not their obligation to.

  • Well, this is one I struggle to understand from the religious perspective. What, in my opinion, is happening is they feel instinctively that evolution undermines the very basis of all religion, the very act of creation. They mash cosmogony, abiogenesis, and biological evolution into the same space in their head because that's how the bible does it. So, accepting evolution to them is accepting the works. How life started, how the universe came to be. It is like giving up on everything they learned starting on page 1 of the most importation text they have, the bible. Its a tough pill to swallow.

  • Evolution is not a fact, it is a lie. The Bible, being true, clearly dictates that creationism is correct. If religions were to accept evolution, they would undermine their religion.

  • The Bible isn't against evolution and evolution isn't a fact.

  • Everyone has the right to live their own life and believe their own religion.

  • No, no one of organized religion will accept Evolution because 2/3 of the time it goes against their religion. Most religion choose creationism since it fits their beliefs.

"...Is developed with extremely scanty evidence" OK bro, whatever you say XD

Is it time for all nations to accept Juche?

Praise Juche!

Except for the "it's a lie part" I think pro-life conservative made my point for me.

Pro-lifeConservative is just a religious zealot and a bible thumper. Don't take him too seriously.

@pro-lifeConservative First sentence = Wrong. Evolution has got proof on it's side, and even if it is wrong, it's still not a lie, as scientists believe it is true, so they aren't intentionally misinforming us. Second sentence = Massively biased and according to the majority of the human race, wrong. Third sentence = Closer to right than anything else you said. Personally, as a Christian, I've accepted evolution. My Christian primary and secondary school actually taught evolution as fact! Because there's too much evidence to support it. Anyway, how does this disprove the bible? It says the world was made in 7 days. It didn't say what type of day- as earth did not exist before this, these days could be very long.

"Evolution" is perceived falsely, even by Atheists themselves. It is not primarily about apes evolving into humans over time, that is one aspect, that is still a debate within the Scientific community itself. Very black and white viewpoint of things...
triangle.128k says2015-07-22T11:05:16.7399236-05:00
@thegreatdebate98 That's still a major part of evolution. If we didn't evolve from apes, who did we evolve from? Tigers? Unless you choose to deny a biology fact that has been proven again and again.
triangle.128k says2015-07-22T11:06:41.5380333-05:00
Why do you choose to deny evolution and not say, gravity? Gravity obviously must be god using the force on everything on Earth. (Except for helium balloons)
TBR says2015-07-22T11:25:09.4497901-05:00
@Thegreatdebate98 - There is no debate about the mechanisms of evolution. Your description sounds more like it is YOU who is confused. We did NOT evolve from apes. We share the common ancestor is all.

My R.E. Teacher just yesterday said that he believes in evolution, since it's the theory with the most scientific evidence and he doesn't think it contradicts the Bible as the story of Adam and Eve is probably a metaphor (How could you measure 7 days before the earth was even around? What days were these?) So yes. Even religious teachers believe in evolution. We need to stop taking it 100% literal. Evolution is the theory with the most evidence, that makes the most sense. If a better theory comes along, that will largely replace evolution.

Why should they "accept" something that isn't true? Really...Evolution is a theory; theory meaning that it has no fact to back it up whatsoever.
Donderpants says2015-07-25T05:44:16.4671778-05:00
Uh, you seriously underestimate how much evidence many theories, including evolution, have. In fact, evolution is believed to be correct because it has the most scientific evidence to support it, and because it makes the most sense. If another theory gets more support, then evolution will be abandoned by most, because the scientific community follows evolution only because it is the most likely way we have such biodiversity. Creationism has far less evidence. Also, might I add- 99.9% of all species are extinct by now. How on earth did we manage with 1000 times more species all at once? That should disprove creationism- Since there were 1000 times as many species of animals, how could we all have fit on an earth that can barely fit the number we have now? And most of those are rather low in numbers even without having to cover every inch. Creationism just doesn't have the evidence that evolution has.
