Darwin is only hated by fundamentalist extremist christians.

I for once went to a Catholic school and I was taught Darwin's theory of evolution.

As Do did i and currently still do and i too was taught Darwins theory in Bio class...


But to attempt to answer your question...

Evolution is seen as a threat because the Bible says that man was created in the image and likeness of God...
And if we came from "apes" as Darwins Theory suggests, it therefore makes humans look inferior. What i mean is then that in some way we were made "simpler" and therefore putting God down in some way as if God was an 'ape' who evolved... therefore not the all "supreme being" that God is supposed to be...


if that makes sense...
i duno if you have a question about that then ill try and explain it better

Don't believing in evolution is the same as don't believing in gravity. It's been widely approved as fact.


And why can't evolution and religion go togher. Maybe a god made that whole evolution. People shouldn't take the Old Testament so seriously. It's book compiled with stories which were spread mouth-to-mouth for over 5000 years. Ofcourse lot of stories in it have a truth somewhere deep within. But all have logical explainations (like floods and eruptions) but that was more than 2000 years ago, hardly any knowledge, hardly any technology.

I'm sure in 3000 years people will raise eyebrows at some of the things we think at this moment.

Exactly. Things that may have been concidered miracles in those days, might easily be explained today with science.

For more on this, I reccommend the book 'Act of God' by Graham Phillips.

Like I always say,

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day; give a man religion and he'll starve himself to death praying for a fish.

On the other hand, some people (like myself) class faith and religion as two different things. Does anyone else feel this way?

Amen to that! Tell that to my religion teacher though.... haha i love freakin him out by asking him how do we know that maybe Jesus and Mary Magdalene werent married... I mean the rest of the disciples had wives and families, but they arent discussed in the Bible, so how do we know???

Well, gravity isn't proven to be true.
It's a theory. I don't mean it doesn't exsist
but scientists are still learning more about it.

Well, at least that's what I was taught in
physics.

I tend to believe evolution to an extent.
I do not believe we evolved from apes though.
I do belive that animals change through-out
the years to have the ability to adapt to
the environment.
