Do you believe that God created humans in their present form at one point within the past 10,000 years? (UQ)

Virginia, what's the second group that's offended? I was going suggest IQ scores be factored in too, does belief in the supernatural increase or decrease as IQs increase?

Not to mention geologic time-keeping.... The idea that the Grand Canyon is 10,000 years old... Wow. Or that the farthest part of our universe is only 10,000 light years away

They look at the half life of radioactive material and they found that the oldest rock that has been found to date, was billions of years old and with other patterns that you would have to look up indicate the earth to be around even longer.

For all the insults I've taken in here, I've yet to see anyone confident enough to debate me in my forum online. I guess it's just more comfortable to feel you can win here with insults (no real arguments) and a higher number of people who you know agree with your opinion. It makes sense.

I believe in God... But this just isn't really believable. Not with all the technology and scientific evidence we have today. The Bible must have been speaking in metaphors

I liked your comment because although we disagree with our view of the world, we agree on all that really matters in the end. God is our Creator. I'm sorry if I have been abrasive. I am so offended by the "stupid creationists" comments that I have been defending myself before defending our Creator.

You misunderstand. I believe that God created the Universe, just not in the last 10,000 years. I think our Universe is too complex to be all coincidental. I believe in both science and God. 10,000 years is not enough time for science. Evolution, Big Bang and God can coexist.

If you don't want to I'll understand. Just remember who offered to backup their statements. I must be pretty confident in my beliefs. Here's your chance to shatter my confidence if you are more confident in your own beliefs. I guess we'll find out.

Dr Paul, you really sound like a pompous a$$hole. I never said I didn't believe in creationism, and I didn't say that carbon dating proves it wrong either. Do I believe that the human race has been on the earth longer than 10,000 years? Of course. The evidence is everywhere.

That's rediculous. And obviously a belief that all creationists believe (sarcasm). And the fact that you think carbon dating proves creation impossible shows your true lack of understanding of science. Carbon dating is one my favorite arguments to start with against evolution.

Maybe you should read the counter arguments on this forum before making statements like that. Creationists aren't stupid. We defend a belief that the majority disagrees with, so we better have a reason for believing what we do and I know I do. Challenge us with some real arguments.

Hey "yes" people? Do you not understand carbon dating? I remember this lady that told me that dinosaurs never existed and that God placed their fossils there in order to brilliantly test our faith. I still lmfao at that.

Hey @NYevo, I really have enjoyed our discussion/debate on this topic. It looks like this poll is almost at the bottom and I feel like we could go back and forth way more. If I created a forum for us to continue, would you be interested in moving the conversation over to the forum?

I believe intelligent design because nothing else makes sense. Look at the uniqueness of life and the complexity of it. From our circulatory system to our ability to reproduce. I could go on and on. "...Mutations/changes happen BY DESIGN in reproduction." (your own words have hidden truth in them).

In order to disprove something, you have to have something tangible to work with. How about you try to prove that i'm not thinking about the number 3

Ignorant. Just kidding :) I dont see though how you can say that the evidence for evolution, even if not fully convincing to you, leads you to side more with intelligent design which has zero evidence.

I would like to point out that the only reason religion hasn't been disproved yet is because it is invincible. Any evidence we have against it is just part of the mystery. Evenly tin on the other hand, is completely vulnerable to anything found to be out of place.

The 2nd law of thermodynamics is for closed systems. Earth is not a closed system. As for Newtons laws, it's true until a force acts upon it, such as a chemical, atomic, or gravitational force. Life doesn't break any laws, it abides by them.

And if it is indeed true, I hope that we do. Until then, I personally haven't seen real mountains of evidence and you can call me ignorant if you want, but I have read more about evolution theory than I have about creation and I 100% believe in creation.

...Another interested point is that the only other things we know of that can defy some of these laws were created by the very things that first broke these laws - life.

In our lifetime i'd bet that the church, unable to argue against mountains of evidence, will embrace that man evolved from more basic organisms, that earth is billions of years old, and that certain biblical passages are metaphor for intended lessons. And God is still the creator of the universe

Maybe we might just look at history religion said the earth was flat, healers were witches, mentally ill were possessed, etc. all of these were wrong and people were put to death because of it. Think I'll stick with science on this one.
