Now, let me give you a quick rundown on evolution:
So to answer your question: "How in the fuck is creationism possible?" - it isn't.
RE: "if evolution is real than we are all psychopathic beasts etc" - Why? We and chimpanzees, orangutans and gorillas all evolved from a common source, how many psychopathic chimpanzees, orangutans or gorillas have you heard of? Most of those are vegetarians, and don't even kill to eat, but live shy, quiet lives in the shadows of the rainforests.
Why can't evolution be true, and at the same time, we simply be kind, caring, loving Humans?
Please point out the psychopath for me --
The only two people in my life that are close enough to debate with, that actually believe in creationism, are immediate family members. One of them just rides over anything and everything said in defense of Evolution, and then starts loudly declaring the fact that you can't be a good person unless you're a Christian and that Richard Dawkins is treated as the Atheist's God, not sure what either of those have to do with the argument. And the other one, although he has not been clinically tested because he is highly paranoid of western medicine, I believe is either Bipolar or mildly Schizophrenic. So there you have it, two prime examples of creationists, a bully and someone who is quite literally insane. I do not think there is a rational thought process behind creationism, I doubt there could be. I understand being dissatisfied with Darwinian theory but I can't understand almost entirely dismissing everything we know about modern science. Maybe I'm too hard on creationists but I have yet to hear a rational argument supporting a creation theory, in my opinion most of them are either deluded or crazy. Sorry if I offended anyone, that was not my intention : )
First of all, Sepia, that's an interesting user name, and not a forgettable one.
Secondly, RE: "Sorry if I offended anyone" - do you know where you are? Who did you expect to offend with that statement? I'm thinking, no one --
And I seriously hope you don't use Answers in Genesis for anything other than comic relief. This is the Internet - it's loaded with factual information, by experts, regarding Evolution, the origin of the Universe, and anything else you'd like to know, you just have to do a little digging.
"I know that there are people who have earned their doctorates in biology who certainly know a lot more about the subject than I do and yet see evolution as a major problem to be corrected"
Myth - as someone with a science background and someone working with high complexity instruments in a scientific field, there are not many people I know with advanced degrees who do not understand, accept, and/or use evolution in science. Even "Christians" I know have positions reminiscent of deists.
Creationism invokes the question - what created any proposed "creator?"
