Genesis, if this was your idea of hiding under a new username... It's very obvious, just saying.

@Unknown95, what is the proof against creationism? I believe in evolution but I don't think my religion and evolution conflict. Where am I wrong?

@Texas14, I believe Unknown95 was talking about contemporary creationism, in which it is believed that God created everything in 6 days

@Texas14 its called evolution
o0jeannie0o says2015-06-09T19:34:05.0249777-05:00
Sry didn't read comments first... That's not really creationism haha

@Texas14 first sorry it took me a while to answer, second there is absolutely no proof of god or that the creationist theory is true. Evolution has mountains of proof from skeletons to DNA, hell we even proved that earth is way older than 6,000 (or 10,000) years by a long shot! Ice samples from Antarctica can be as old as 800,000 years, there are even fossils that are older than that.

"With all the proof against it and all the proof for evolution, most creationist still believe in an unproven claim, why?" They're uneducated and they have no desire to learn anything. They think evolution is a joke so they refuse to study it. They prefer what their brainwashers told them, a magical being magically created creatures out of nothing. Creationists are uneducated morons.

Damn @BobC, that's a really good point.

"most creationist still believe in an unproven claim," - Fallacy of Ignorance.

@Unknown95, I agree that the idea that the world was created in six literal days is untrue, but nothing you just said disproves God or creation. I believe that God created the universe and Earth formed over billions of years and evolution happened as science tells us. Nothing you're telling me disproves my beliefs.
Texas14 says2015-06-11T12:28:46.8434827-05:00
@BobC, are you saying that religious people in general are uneducated? That means that most scholars, politicians, etc. are uneducated but they're obviously not. I'll repeat: evolution and creationism do NOT contradict.

Evolution explains how the universe formed into what we know of it today. It does not explain what created the universe or how the process began. No one has any actual proof to that unanswered question.
