why dont christians learn what theory means before they argue about evolution?

Update:

it isnt singled out at all the christians, its singled at the christians that argue about evolution without understanding theory.

Update 2:

continental drift still makes sense even after reading the bible because its proven fact you can see it occurring.

    We Have learned, what you need to know is that The evidence for evolution is and has been interpreted from a Philosophical and ideological Bias, The answers given by adherents to Evolution here in R&S is proof of the bias and agenda, Atheism has to have an alternate explanation—other than a Creator—for how the universe and life came into existence.

    Darwin once identified himself as a Christian but as a result of some tragedies that took place in his life, he later renounced the Christian faith and the existence of God. Evolution was invented by an atheist.

    What is sad is that Christians are falling into this Trap and trying to fit evolution into the Bible (Theistic Evolution) thinking they can make it fit.

    Lee Stroble in his video listed below “ The Case for the Creator” stated (5 min. 28 sec into the video) The Case for a Creator

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6881114962...

    That “There is no way you can Harmonize Neo Darwinism with Christianity, I could never understand Christians who would say “ Well I believe in God yet I believe in Evolution as well” You see Darwin’s idea about the development of life led to his theory that modern science now generally defines as an undirected process completely devoid of any purpose or plan,”. Now how could God direct an undirected process? How could God have purpose in a plan behind a system that has no plan and no purpose? It just does not make sense.

    It didn’t make sense to me in 1966 and it doesn’t make sense to me now.

    The Apostle Paul wrote to His Son Timothy stating that “ in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, [because] they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn [their] ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

    Those Christians who believe in evolution have no idea how that effects their theology.

    A best guess based of correlated data. Not so much an actual true answer to anything.

    So you want creationists to learn that the theory of evolution is basically the best guess that science has to offer about the origination of man?

    Which from a non-subjective standpoint is basically what the bible is as well. I will admit that there is no true answer, one could be just as likely as the other, despite genetic similarities between humans and apes the dawn of man happened years ago, and we really can't just ask someone from that time what they remember can we?

    Cognitive dissonance is a discomfort caused by holding conflicting cognitions (e.g., ideas, beliefs, values, emotional reactions) simultaneously. In a state of dissonance, people may feel surprise, dread, guilt, anger, or embarrassment.[1] The theory of cognitive dissonance in social psychology proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance by altering existing cognitions or adding new ones to create a consistent belief system.[1] An example of this would be the conflict between wanting to smoke and knowing that smoking is unhealthy; a person may try to change their feelings about the odds that they will actually suffer the consequences, or they might add the consonant element that the smoking is worth short term benefits.

    Some people get "high" on the adrenaline rush that comes with feeling angry, and some people enjoy the feeling that they are somehow "better" than others.

    And some of these people might have been raised in, or converted to, a religion that allows thatm to feel angry at people who OFFEND their chosen deity by doubting the texts they hold sacred, and some of these people may enjoy the feeling of "I'm going to the GOOD PLACE, but you are NOT!"

    Learning what a scientific theory really is (like the germ theory of disease, which pretty much explains disease) or the theory of evolution (which pretty much explains how organisms change over time), would deprive them of their anger, their rush, their smug "I am better than thee" opportunity to gloat over the eternal torment of millions of people who were not quite smart enough to agree with THEIR perception of The Infinite.

    perhaps it is because they tire of people ignorant of scientific methods and trying to say a theory is a proven fact which it is not no has it ever been nor will it ever be and possibly because anyone with a modicum of scientific background knows how absurd the theory is and need a good laugh because it is an unprovable theory

    Open a Bible and read Genesis. Now look at the theories of certain sciences such as continental drift. Does it make sense now?

  • Why single out all Christians when most accept evolution?

  • 9 years ago

    thats the point, a theory should have evidence to support it

    I really don't know. Perhaps it's their dogma that keeps them at bay from the scientific world.
