By faith

15 Dec

Hello again!

I’d say the main point of this passage (and of the entire chapter) is faith, just to give you a heads up. I think you’ll see what I mean when you read the passage:

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

(Heb 11:1-3)
 
I hope, Mr. evolutionist, that explains any questions you may have about how we know the world was created. What is faith: Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for. I like it, whenever evolutionists want facts instead of faith. Fact or faith? It’s an interesting question. People evolving from radio-active gunk, or that we were created by a creator (God)
Faith, is knowing something without having to see it. Faith is just knowing something without having all the pieces fit together. In all honesty, I’m impressed by evolutionists, they have way more faith than I do.
 
Christian: What do you believe in?
Evolutionist: I believe we evolved from a common ancestor… obviously.

Christian: Who did the “common ancestor” evolve from then?

Evolutionist: Well, duh, “itdidn’t evolve. Everyone knows this!

Christian: So where did it come from?

Evolutionist: It was created when absolutely nothing exploded.

Christian: Oooooooh

How reliable do you think that sounds?

That’s why I love it when evolutionists want facts. Because, if you went and asked an evolutionist to give you 10 absolute, proven, facts of evolution. I almost promise you that they won’t be able to do it, this varies on how much a person believes in evolution. But, when ever I ask that question, they either leave the conversation, or dodge the question.

                                                      You are loved!

    All the evidence on the *planet* squarely indicates that all life is descended from a common ancestor. We didn’t evolve FROM monkeys, we evolved alongside them on a different path. Modern day monkeys, chimps, gorillas, etc. are all cousins of humanity, much like each race within humanity is related to one another. Likewise, all primates are cousins of all other vertebrates. The fossil evidence, DNA evidence, visual homologous structures, vestigial organs, and practices such as dog-breeding to emphasize certain traits over many generations (which is nothing more than evolution guided by humans)–all of this so overwhelmingly and clearly demonstrates this, that it IS a well-established fact. Just because we can’t explain everything about it doesn’t mean we don’t know that it happened. You may not be able to explain HOW a crime was committed but the fact that a crime WAS committed is obvious. A simple google search is all it would take to educate yourself about evolution. It is not a faith-based belief. Faith is an excuse to believe whatever you want for no good reason.

    I have repented of my non-acceptance of evolution as a demonstrable fact. Will you?

      Then whom did we evolve from?

      Humanity is related to one another, because we are the same species.

      As for the fossil “evidence” and DNA “evidence” I encourage you to look at this website: http://www.av1611.org/jmelton/Evolution.html

      And, as for your statement about dog breeding, that is NOT evolution, that is adeptation, two completely diffrent things. The dogs had to “adapt” to a new sitaution, in order to survive.

      Adaptation:

      One organism changing into another, however, this organism can change back to it’s former form.

      Evolution: A lower form organism, that, over a peroid of several hundered/million years, becomes a higher form organism, this change, is irreversible.

    Christian to Evolutionist: So then, you acknowledge the monkies were “created”. Yet, you call it by a ‘big bang’. Yet, the Bible, you know, the Word of God says “In the beginning GOD created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1 on. For us, that is enough. Careful how you refer to the Sovereign GOD as ‘the big bang’. Watch your head!!

      I’m sorry, I’m not sure I made myself completely clear. When I said those things, I was referring to the evolutionists, I was not saying I thought those things to be true, I was saying thats what evolutionists think to be true. And I agree that the Sovereign God was the one who made the whole earth and everything in it, though, I don’t remember refering to him as the big bang… ?

        it’s easy to win a debate when your opponent is a straw man created by yourself. evolution theory does not say humans evolved from monkeys. Monkeys we know these days evolved from other creatures which we would probably call monkeys as well, humans also evolved from other creatures (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_human_evolution_fossils). It is believed that at some point there may have been a common predecessor but that is entirely irrelevant. Now this is based on physical evidence found and kept so anyone can study it not in something written in a book.

        Wow, already calling names, are we?

        I was using the “evolution from monkeys” example, as an example.

        Perhaps you could tell me who we did evolve from?

        I suggest you visit this website, as concerning the “human bones” website: http://www.av1611.org/jmelton/Evolution.html.

        I think the fact that is believed, that there was a common ancestor, is totally irrelevant. The reason I think this way is because it either proves or disproves evolution, how could we evolve, if we didn’t have something to evolve from?
