The Underailable Thread!

It seems crazy to me how much you have to define yourself to post on that site--maybe so that people can decide not to consider what you have to say on the merits. Marital status, political affiliation, religious affiliation. They do seem to love their little boxes!

I know I am reaching to answer a question that was asked over 4 years ago, but the simple mind of many creationists, and my brother has a degree which qualifies him to teach 4 languages beyond his own English, but still has a very simple mind, works on a dichotomy. If it isn't evolution it has to be creation exactly as I personally understand creationism.

Because if we evolved, we're not special. We have no intrinsic value. We have to go out and earn our own self esteem. Religion is all about the unearned, both in matter and in spirit. It's all about unearned greatness, unearned knowledge, unearned material values (consider the Lilies of the field), Unearned love, unearned forgiveness.

Impossible to disprove evolution. it is predictable, observable and falsifiable...thus fact.

But since when impossibility stopped fanatcis from trying?

Hmmmm. Consider

It is falsifiable, therefor possible to disprove in principle. They just haven't done it and aren't likely to.
