    Alright, me and a friend, are having a heated debate on this topic.

    I am for Evolution, he is for Creation.

    What do you believe?

    :) <------- Fully evolved!

    Evolution. Most definitely.
    Possibly with a little bit of luck.

    But IMO, we might simply be coincidence.

    seriously tho, who was the first naked ape to realize we're now "evolved"?

    Evolution is a random process.

    By no means does the fact that we can type on the innerweb mean that we are "more" evolved than snails.

    Random paths of evolution can lead to some pretty wacky things. It led to us, to flying squirrels, to squid, to manatees, and even to ideas (and thusly to thoughts of god....). Heavy.

    Thought of the day: most of our DNA does nothing, i.e. DNA codes for everything, except only 10% of it actually codes... what is the rest of it?

    I think it is our collective memories... our collective unconsciousness, encoded there, but not in a regular 3-digit codon stucture as it is for our physical structures...

    duh, mankind and manribkind came from a magic garden with talking snakes, deliciously forbidden fruit and strategically placed fig leaves.

    on a related note, i read two weeks ago that some british researchers had concluded that the human race was no longer evolving...i'm to lazy to find the link, if you want it use a fucking search engine, you fuckers....anyhoo, basically our weak and our sickly and our stupid are not only able to reproduce, but the do it a lot!

    I would think so!!! With the current health system and welfare... no one would die because he is weaker / less smart and no one would succeed to transfer more of his genes because he is better than others in some aspect because of our monogamous social structure

    This dosent really matter anymore, because it seems like the human race will evolve by our own hands. With the rapid pace technology and our way of life has changed over the past few hundred years, the biological process of "evolving" cannot keep up with our everyday needs. Soon, through gene therapy and DNA manipulation, those evolutionary processes will be manipulated to meet our needs for the time, and we in turn decide our own evolutionary fate.

    The mere fact that we have the capacity and technology to do this proves that evolution exists.

    Some may ask "Should we be playing God?"...I say we've already become our own Gods.

    Thanks guys, you helped me prove my point. BUT, he goes "They're all sarcastic, no truth to what they say"

    Ahh well. I'll let him keep his beliefs planted where they are, as long as mine are respected as well.

    YAY.

    "Man made God in his own image."
    -anon

    YAY

    Creationism? Evolution? YAY? Which paradigm would Kuhn prefer? The answer is probably obvious, but so is the fact that it doesn't matter.

    PS: Christians are all crazy too

    Wasn't that Durkheim?

    Anyways, why the hell is this topic even being debated. Evolution is a fact. Anybody who doesn't believe a fact has something wrong with his head.

    sorry to not have helped you out with a serious answer, but to me the question is as silly as asking "who puts the quarter under your pillow, your parents or the tooth fairy?"

    i do not disallow the possibility of a divine force guiding evolution simply because i have no information on that subject. but fundemental creationism is a ridiculous concept.

    It's not that you didn't help. You did alot! And I thank you for the help.

    But I was just pointing out how desperate his arguement has gotten and what kinda rebuttals he was feeding me.

    :) <-------- Gracious one
