DARWINISM IS ON THE RETREAT
Is that why we don`t have dinosaurs, because Noah couldn`t fit them aboard his ark

Think of how many religions attempt to validate themselves with prophecy. Think of how many people rely on these prophecies, however vague, however unfulfilled, to support or prop up their beliefs. Yet has there ever been a religion with the prophetic accuracy and reliability of science?

i want to say at this point that i don't wish to ridicule anyones deeply heald believes, BUT i believe that fundamentalism of any creed is DANGEROUS!

becuase at the core of it, fundamentalism is about denying people freedom.

I certainly wouldn't want to ridicule anybody's beliefs either, but I also don't think that those who have beliefs should be ridiculing science.

When I look at nature, and see how perfectly one thing matches up to another, the male and the female, the carnavore to the herbavore, how plants adapt to environments etc., I can't but believe that there is a God who set it all in motion. It doesn't require a leap of faith or watching it happen in front of me to determine that evolution is part of God's work.

If you had read, "The Origin of Species", you'd see that Darwin was a very devout Christian. And that the theory of evolution most certainly is compatible with Christianity. God is all powerful, why can't he work through both physics, biology, chemistry, and astronomy as well as through miracles?

Lastly, the odds of life forming on a planet are far greater than 10950, and if that number were right then roughly 36,529,680 planets would have sentient life in the Milky Way galaxy alone.

(The above estimate is based on 400 billion stars in the Milky Way)

That was a very uneducated and thoughtless response with no aim but to insult. If you concede that noah's ark did exist then you have to believe in the same God that told him to make it. Think about it. If that God was so powerful to call all the animals to Noah in the first place, dont you think he would have the power to also make those animals return to wherever it is they came from?
I enjoy a good debate just like the next guy (well a little more that the next guy). But if youre gonna post stuff like this, please dont waste our time.
