Well, this is my first thread opening, so to any moderators: if my thread is wrong, or belongs in a different forums, I would like to apologize and ask that you please move it. So, I think the title is pretty descriptive--do you believe in Creationism or Evolution? I made this in response to a previous thread, and this topic is very, very interesting. xD I, being rather unpious, believe in evolution. Without discounting anyone's religious or personal beliefs, I believe that the evidence for evolutionary theory outways any concerning creationism. While I could present argument after argument, it seems creationists tend to bring up the event of abiogenesis--that is, creating life from unorganic material. ... We are not 100% sure. We have done experiments like the Miller-Urey experiment (see Wikipedia for more details) that have proven that amino acids (the building blocks of life) can be formed from abiotic materials. However, we are sure (by detecting red shift from supernovae, seeing the oldest stars, and the omnipresent background radiation in space0 that the universe is around 13.7 billion years ago, contrary to the belief that it was created around 6000 years ago. And about the question about the Big Bang, we are also not 100% sure. But trying to justify it by God brings up the next question--who/what created God? While I am agnostic, putting God as the Prime Mover brings any number of unresolved questions. Now about the actual creationism. We have observed microevolution in many biota, the most common being fruit flies and of course, microbes. Life adapts. When humans migrated out of Africa, we lost most of our melanin, and developed genes that gave us different hair and eye colours (mostly in Europe, however). Even as late as the 1300s we have developed new mutations, this one in response to the Black Plague (about 10% of Europeans have a mutation that makes them more resistant to the bubonic plague and apparently HIV). Well, I am sure many of you are more qualified or have more credentials, or just know more about biology than I do. So, I open the floor to discussion, and hope, well, I am not breaking any rules or trying to flamebait.
