    the mayans weren't handed a bible when they came up with their religion. Alot of religions came up on their own only to follow a very similar story line.

    Pretty smart those sloth. They figured out the canopy was safe.

    Your assumption is other animals aren't using critical thinking.

    Wrong assumption.

    And a lot of others didn't. Like the Romans, who just happened to develop the calendar we currently use.

    I've read the Bible twice. I use a calendar every day.

    Smart people that questioned the church stopped getting killed as heretics.

    Close to the same capacity is still pretty smart.

    Technology builds on itself pretty rapidly as we can see.

    Evolution doesn't move at the same pace as all external forces.

    When it doesn't....man the word is right there on the tip of my tongue....it's called....extinction? Yep, pretty sure it's extinction.

    The mayans believed we were created from beings of another world. Much like all the major religions believe.

    All the current major religions.

    There have been many, many other major religions throughout the course of human history.

    That won't keep Tostidos from believing he just poked a hole in evolutionary theory. :confused:

    Here is a bit of perspective. The overwhelming size of the universe it what makes me believe in evolution over creation. That and the fact that there are so many contradictions in the bible it just gets silly.

    Are you sure creationists believe there is even the Milky Way Galaxy? Can't use evidence of 100 Billion galaxies if there is absolutely no way to prove that the earth is older than 6000 years. The universe is only as old as the earth.

    They also believe there are no contradictions in the Bible.

    How old is Christianity? 2013 years? that is a very tiny infinitesimal spec on the earth's calendar. With the rate of technology and people waking up and becoming free thinkers I doubt it will be around for another 1000 years.

    Yes, we can prove the milky way is real and we can prove there are other galaxies...

    are you saying the earth is only 6000 years old?!

    Just felt like adding a bit of thought and opinions to a few things here. Just for the heck of it because I like this thread and LOVE debate (as long as it is civil and not condescending)

    Yes, but I was refering to judging a specific person on their belief. Just because a person THINKS a different way does not open the door to someone who thinks a different way to arbitrarily say the other is wrong, without having proof of them being wrong.

    How do we, or anyone for that matter KNOW that the tectonic theory is 100% accurate for say 500,000 years? (Of course interestingly enough it is called tectonic THEORY, not fact) Perhaps the tectonic shifting has decreased say 10% over a period of 1000 years. This would mean that 500,000 years ago the tectonic shift could have been as fast as 3000 feet per year. Again this could be a theory. Also as tectonic plates shift they create mountains and valleys as they interact with each other, so maybe things moved really fast back then, and have been slowing down. Granted again I have no evidence to PROVE this, but we ARE talking theory here. Just food for thought.



    Again my argument against the 100% accuracy of this is WHERE do they get their numbers from? Has someone actually COUNTED the galaxies? Of course not. So their information is simply based on THEORY and not fact. If you could count 1 galaxy every second it would take you 100,000,000,000 seconds to do so. This would equate to 3168 YEARS to count them all. Obviously impossible. So they BASE their numbers on what they HAVE found, and then THEORIZE from there. Again, no solid FACT. Just theory.
