Creationism

Given all the information based on factual, scientific studies, isn't it a bit convenient that some people would choose NOT to beleive what is irrefutable, proven scienctific fact? The problem with fundamentalism is that it fails to understand one of the tenants of science: lack of evidence leads to 1 choices: 1. failure to reject a hypothesis. Using this method, many scientists simply choose #1: meaning they can't reject that there may be a supreme being, but they can't confirm it either, there's simply a lack of scientific evidence to support it. People interpret this incorrectly.
Here are my thougts: Let's say there is a God,( and I think there is one) and 2000+ years ago you decide to reveal yourself to your creation. Are you going to start explaining how you created atoms & molecules and such? No, because people wouldn't understand it at the time, and most wouldn't now either. So God decides to put creation in terms that people can understand. It's quite logical if you think about it. The only problem was that the human race is slow to change and that's evident in the fact that in 2005, some people still beleive in the garden of eden story.

hello, first of all .. Big vinnie fan here also.. i plan on visiting this site much more.. let me just say this on your topic.. i actually got involved in the intelligent design debate recently. I basically believe that natural selection is a tool of creation. not the start of it. If you would like we can chat about that, but i want to comment on your last statement. The book of Genisis is the book of beginnings, alot of linear thinking in the book is also constant in the new testament because truth is truth is truth. Let me just give you this, God created Adam in his image. Eve came next, this establishes dominion and also points to mans need for others so as to not be selfish, because selfishness is the root of all evil. In the book it says God walked with Adam in the " cool breeze " .. in Hebrew, the word for "cool breeze" is the same word for "spirit"............. Peace out .......

I respect your opinion and thank you for your comment. My opinion on the Garden of Eden story still remains the same: it's a story that God passed down so that people would have an explanation for the beginning of life on earth, in terms that people could understand and comprehend at the time. In my opinion, I feel it's a story told so that people have an answer that is comprehensible. Let me reiterate by saying that there's nothing wrong with beleiving it, I choose to beleive otherwise. Thanks for the comments and keep 'em coming.
