Evolution? I'm only asking because I know some Schools in the States ban any mention of Charles Darwin's Origin of the Species.

So now whole generations are growing up believing we all come from Adam and Eve? I'll blame Bush its easier,

not believing in evolution is like not believing in gravity

Bush, yes I wanna say something about him... But... What? Is this about evolution?! Damned... Well... Yes I believe in evolution. Only in evolution. I'm out of all religions, by the way.

I thought this thread was going to be about magic. Anyway, I think 'believing' in something is ridiculous, but rather one should 'assume temporarily for specific purposes.' Of course, it's much more practical to assume that evolution did occur than to assume that creationism occurred.

Not to mention that I am fairly certain that if President Bush were confronted about creationism, he would almost certainly support the teaching of evolution in schools. It's unreasonable to even consider him in this.

What's the point of believing that God created evolution? Why does it matter where it (or anything) came from? Have we nothing better to do than wonder about things that can't be proven? We're here in the world right now, so let's make the best of what we do know and can prove. I can't believe how people can spend so long wasting their time trying to prove the unprovable.

Science is the study of proving things by testable measures. Philsophy covers what science cannot cover. Creationism comes from philosophy, since religion falls under philosophy. There is not one bit of scientific evidence claiming that an invisible man in the sky created anything, so until that can be proven, it cannot be entertained as a remote possibility, as it is thus a waste of precious time.

Not to burst your bubble or anything, but 90% of all discussion and practice is, by your definition, a waste of precious time.

That is a great sentence even though I am a devout, born-again Atheist.

And that's what concerns me deeply. I stand by what I said. I can't believe that we, the intelligent species we are, often have nothing better to do than worry about metaphysical things and ideas that will never be proven. Every minute wasted talking intelligent design, or selfishily focusing on one's "personal salvation", is a minute not spent doing something that actually may make a difference. I won't be bothered to make a list of what those things could be in this needy world of ours. Anyone who is aware should know.
