I accept that the current scientific understanding is correct.

MY RESPONSE:

In other words, 'YOU BLINDLY BELIEVE IT'

No. I base my acceptance on my education, personal reading of prominent authors such as Dawkins, and recorded lectures and talks. I do not claim any official degrees but I think I have a fairly good layman's understanding of the topic. The finer points can easily be researched online as the major universities, like Berkley, have online resources.

Note how the people in this short video have NOT been encouraged to critically think about ANYTHING they have been taught. Not the college teachers, nor the students

They just accept it all at blind face value, as they have been brainwashed to do.

Maybe you should consider the fact that your words were insulting to me. I do not appreciate people like yourself "coming out of nowhere" and telling me what I think and why I think it.

MY RESPONSE:

That's what blind faith believers tend to say about the things they blindly believe in.

Hey, if you get what you ask for you should not be surprised by that. Did you expect me to put my proverbial tail between my legs then run and hide?

Do you believe that man evolving from an apelike common ancestor automatically means no intelligent designer was involved in the process?

No Jsamuel, but a return to civility and better reason would be a wonderful start.

Blink

How would a description of formal education and self-education via a variety of applicable sources apply to "blind faith"?

I mean, just look at these college students. They are like little grade school kids. They are not critically thinking about ANYTHING they are being taught. It's disgraceful!!!

Colleges should be encouraging ruthless critical thinking, not blind faith belief in science, for crying out loud!!!
