If You Don't Believe In Evolution, I Want Your Input
This post is inspired by the shutdown that Jewish Atheist wrote about at a religious blog that was discussing ID. That inspired a well thought out post by Ben Avuyah. Hellbound Alleee has questions specifically for Christians too, she is getting some response at least. Hopefully I can get some sincere response too.
Anti-evolutionists, try to be honest, you really don't have much of a background in science, right? You don't do too much research at sites like Talk Origins, correct? So I can only conclude that you don't believe in evolution because you don't want to believe in evolution. Why is that? Is there a certain bible passage or bible passages that claim that evolution could not have happened, is this why you don't buy into evolution? Is it because you want man to have special status? Is it something your parents taught you? Do you really think your Preacher or Rabbi knows more about science than actual scientists? If you are going to answer, please don't pretend that you don't believe in evolution because of your understanding of science. That would be dishonest. Face it, you use apologist sources like Answers in Genesis to give you support, not real understanding, and if that source turned around and stated evolution is fact, you would find another source.
I'm not expecting to get much response here because as seen in the past here and on other blogs, those who don't believe in evolution seem to stay away from these types of discussions. Pharyngula, recently asked for real questions from those who applauded Coulters stance against evolution, and all of a sudden, the Coulter loving trolls disappeared from his site.
