University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Yes, those laws are perfect in their creation.
I will believe in Evolution if you can give me an answer for how the first "spark of life" was created.
That's not part of evolutionary theory. That's the theory of abiogenesis.
Once again, debating evolution with you is pointless because you don't understand any of it. Read a textbook and start a new topic/PM me with questions.
My bad, sir.
If god has a plan and knows their "path" then why does he allow such terrible things to happen?
I guess that was my point. Ice and snow. No work today. Been drinking lol

Most Christians cant explain the doctrine of sovereignty with a lick of accuracy and even the ones that can have nothing to say when you ask them, "Well why has 99% of humanity gone to sleep hungry consistently, watched their mothers raped, slept with too little covering, etc etc etc etc"
Christianity in America is its own little thing for sure. Just another branch of the metamyth.
I think that these guys want to see the light but they are scared. Their relegion tells them that they will die terrible deaths of they dont belive. So this is their way of reaching out to break their bonds.
Evolution makes no claim on creation of the universe or the origin of life. It is soley about the variation and distribution of life observed on earth.

Apparently I don't. I have no problem debating this with you. I enjoy the discussion. With that being said, I am not a science major so I need someone to explain it to me.
Take the idea of free will(which God has given us) apply it to every person, and you will see how a tragedy such as that has happened.
We are flawed creations. Our genes experience mutations making us prone to serious diseases, retardation, and other terrible things. God sucks at his job.
It's all good. God has given each of us free will, combine that with every person being inherently evil until they are born again and you get my view on that.
Hopefully that clarifies at least one Christians view for ya.
So where does life come from? Im curious
How convenient, free will, well if god has such a swell plan for everything wouldn't he use his power to intervene when someone's "free will" may lead them toward harming themselves or others?
Why So Serious?
If we are truly free, then god cannot know what will happen after I make my next choice. Then, he cannot have a plan.
In the 1970s, which comparatively was about as technologically advanced as 1970BC Carl Sagan showed that certain chemistry when bombarded with radiation can form amino acids.
Really the moment when mysticism and religion will die will be when chemistry forms what we call life out of inorganic chemistry. There isnt a single doubt that it will be done relatively soon.
You're getting sucked in man, honestly your response is Christian Doctrinally wrong. Which is the field he is trying to get you to play him on.
If I answer that with the most well thought out answer you'll simply ignore it and ask another question to help your losing argument. This isn't my first rodeo brother
Maybe not, but it is quite clear to me that you have only heard/read about evolution and the origins of life/the universe from people attempting to convince you science is incorrect.
Start by just taking out a textbook on biology. The library or a used book store is perfect for this. You'll see how the theory of evolution which is described in depth by biologists in their books is not at all what you have proposed.
Shouldn't we have evolved beyond those problems by now?
That's the dumbest thing you have ever said on here. God can and has seen all possible outcomes.
Once again, no matter what I say yall will not accept it and will have another trap in form of a question, carry on with your agenda.
Oh nor mine so hit me with it, brother.
I actually like to have my beliefs challenged, it induces thought.
Edit: because honestly, I've yet to see a logical argument for your belief but would love for that to change today.

No. Most of our reproduction is done by 30 to 35 (and historically was much earlier than that). Therefore, someone who dies after that isn't really removing themselves from the gene pool. This is why cancer is so prevalent.
As for diseases like autism, they are the result of genetic recombinations that don't work out well. Keep in mind evolution does what is best for the SPECIES - not for the organism. It's better to have a couple autistic people who die out and be able to improve your DNA than it is to have no autistic people but no flexibility.
Of course, why we would be created to get cancer and die is another story.
Not all mutations are good.
You'd figure god wouldn't allow such horrible diseases in his "plan."
Then god doesn't have 1 plan for me. Your original assertion is still wrong.
