Feel the need to try to brainwash anyone into believing the particular load of tosh that you subscribe to? Then this is the place. 8)

Yay.

Okay everyone, here goes...

Become a Christian!

(Bit of an anticlimax there, but should encorage some debate.)

EDIT: Oops, sorry, Meerkat. Your post hadn't appeared. I think I just ruined your point.

Um...er...I'd rather eat shark-infested custard, because like Terry Pratchett, I'm a non-believer. :D

Start off with a topic that you think would be interesting and relevant. Then sit back!

Okay... What about... Evolutionism? Do you think it fits with Christianity?

OK :D

According to Capt there are only approximately 500 million Christians in the world. That means that there are 6 billion non-Christians. Christianity is a minority myth-based cult, worshipping a mythical sky pixie.. :lol:

I'd rather believe in myself and other human beings. 8)

Well the Catholics finally accepted evolution scientifically as well as conceptually and it's taught in their schools so it's can't be that unacceptable from a faith stance. For fundamentalists it's still a bitter pill and they won't swallow it but some people do 'believe'/accept evolution but not that NASA landed on a rocket on the moon - it's just a standpoint and sometimes religion/bigotry is simply a shield for ignorance (wilfil or fearful - flip a coin) :roll:

I believe in evolution, but it has nothing at all to do with Christianity. That's like saying "kettles" where do they fit in with the Liverpool v West Ham game I'm watching at the moment. Answer is, they don't.

Pooh... I'm talking about how it fits with Genesis.

Oh, and how would Evolutionists explain irreducable complexity? (Google it if you don't know what it is.)

Good one. (think about using a poll too).

It's a case of what we know now (evolution wise) the bible HAS to FIT IN with Evolution. It is already in danger of becoming outmoded and that is a shame as it is a wonderful story, good plots and some heroic good guys.

There is a theory that the bible was written and then translated badly. Could that be why Evolution and the Church hit it off so badly?
