Ever since I started going to church and seeing how people believe in the baptist religion, I have had this feeling something was not qite kosher. I am a big fan of science versus religion. I just have one question. If god created the earth in 7 days and adam and eve were the first human beings, then where does the dinosaurs, cavemen, and evolution come in to play. We have bones, paintings on cave walls, tools used by cavemen and dinosaur eggs as well as iron clad proof of these creatures and cavemen existing come from? I asked a preacher this once and he said after hesitating for a few momments, "God put them on earth to lead us astray." If he wants us all to be believers, then why lead us astray.
I have my own theory of religion. Human beings have to have something to believe in and we cannot go without knowledge. Be it truth or fiction. How many religions has there been in the history of the world? just to be safe, lets say over 100. So out of those 100 religions, christianity is the only right one? Being ignorant, and egotistical is a trademark of americans and christians. Many christians follow blindly their preachers and spiritual leaders without giving a second thought as to what they're being told. Is it truth or not? They dont think about that. What does religion mean? It is a belief. Now if a certain belief was true, for certain. Wouldnt they call it "The Way"?

"So out of those 100 religions, christianity is the only right one? "

There is a logical problem with your comment here. If Christians didnt beleive their faith was the only right one, then they wouldnt be Christians!!

If any religion is true then only that religion can be true. It is impossible for 100 different religions to all be true. So of course Christians will say that their faith is the only right one, because it would be illogical for them to say "actually we beleive that Buddhism, Islam and Christianity are all entirely true"

there is no evolution it is just something that charles darwin made up and there has never been any proof of it. and all the sudden people believe it to be true. the earth isn't millions of years old. do not confuse this with the Bible which can not be disproven by theories.

Hi, this is an old question that i've stumbled across but i'll reply anyway. There is some weight to the argument that God's existence needs to be obscure to preserve our freewill but the idea that you can just invent things to 'get God off the hook' when Science finds inconvinent facts is bogus and intellectually ridiculous. What is far more persuasive is that Genesis is a sacred book that tries to make sense of the world for ancient people. It contains truth but is not lieterally true. We learn that humans are not a cosmic accident and that God wants a relationship with humans - you loose so much to read it literally. Like thinking Moby Dick is a book about whaleing.

Perhaps Adam and Eve were the first caveman and cavewoman from whom the human race as we know it now evolved? (The older I get the more confused I get about it all!)

Re: Searching for answers

Species' do not evolve from single individuals; entire gene-pools change over time; meaning that an entire community has certain traits selected for, therefore the whole community changes over time until it is so different from geographically seperated species that they have become a new species. Speciation, therefore, happens to a population and not just to individuals.
