"Sorry it took me so long to answer. I was just thinking about how weird it is that we eat birds." - Tracy Jordan
Meanwhile, you refer to people who believe in evolution as believers in "magic", all the while unconcerned with the problem of God = metaphysical concept = magic.
You should stick to this as its your best argument IMO. All the other stuff defending yourself is fuel for the fire for others.
Like I've said before, semantics bother me. Who cares about the word used whether it be faith, magic, monkeys (as opposed to promisians), etc. the point is still there.
You either believe, in the end, that something came from nothing for no reason or something came from something for a reason. Whatever we use in between all of that boils down to that statement. We can call creation magic, and evolution theory if those words suit you better. It doesn't bother me.
This is so awesome I can't believe I get to read it. It's not just that you believe science is "magic" while Creationism isn't, you present in a way as if you think you're "owning" people with the strength of your logic.
BTW, doesn't it ever bother you how the Law of Gravitation doesn't have much of a story behind it? I mean there's Newton and the apple, but there's no actual story to gravity itself, leading me to question its validity.

Unfortunately you didn't see the veiled sarcasm behind bhiley77's post. You see, gravity is a theory in the same way evolution is a theory. But, a scientific theory is not the same as "biblical theory" or "my theory about what women really want". A scientific theory is, for all intents and purposes, a fact. Until it's disproved. Because scientists actually work to disprove their own theories. That's science.
Your biblical theory, however, is a simple as "this story sounds neat, promises me a blissful eternity, and holds me unaccountable for my own actions ... I think I'll pick that one!" Sound about right?
