There has been a very long war between science and religion over the past centuries. This war has split the world in to 2 halves,people who believed that science is more legit while others believed otherwise..This is absolutely normal for me...everyone should think of whatever they want to think of..we are all different and we all have a specific way of thinking...But the thing is...Is it normal to have contradicted ways of thinking?? Let me give you all an example,in one of the lectures of scientific thinking,the professor was explaining Darwin's theory of evolution and after he finished,he simply said that his theory is absolutely wrong..One of my friends stood up and asked.."why?" he simply replied "because it is" 

     After the lecture, he went to the professor asking him to explain in more details why he said that the theory of evolution is pointless...he replied that Adam and Eve are the beginning of humanity and kept giving religious arguments and that's perfectly fine for me....but the question is....Why did that professor spent years and years trying to get a PHD in something he never believed in.....and the way he argued with the student was not scientific at all! it was absolutely blind!

     Who should we blame now? religion for making people have a contradicting way of thinking? or society that forces everyone to think in a way they do not wanna think in?

I'm not sure you can safely espouse anything that contradicts the Koran in present day Egypt.

It would be instructive to debate Evolution on a scientific level to lend credence to alternative explanations.
Comment by Michael on April 25, 2016 at 6:29pm
Also it must be made clear that evolution does not address abiogenisis and that evolution within a phylum can exist to create new species. However trans-phylum evolution is a leap of faith.

Michael...if we discussed evolution on a scientific level...then there would be no alternative theories on the table. Evolution is a clear cut theory...well demonstrated and perfectly correlates with all other fields of science (geology, chemistry, biology, physics, neuropsychology etc). No alternative theories present a method for reliably testing them...except half brained theories which never pass the test. If you were serious about the science of evolution then you wouldn't consider alternative theories, just as we wouldn't entertain theories that the earth is a cube or that a purple giraffe dances on the moon the first Sunday of every month.

By the way...which creationist website did you get this phylum nonsense from? It doesn't help your case but reveals the typical ignorance most creationists/intelligent-design-morons have per evolution. Instead of trying to actually understand it...just read some guys ignorant criticism and repeat it wherever you go. Hey...what about phylum's? Yeah...what about them? A leap of faith? You cannot possibly be serious? First of all...only creationists who don't understand evolution use that term. Assuming you meant something like...demonstrate a common ancestors morph into different species and furthermore..
demonstrate how common ancestors shared a common ancestor. The complicated answer is...this is an arbitrary game (evolution is a gradual process with no game changer moments). The simple answer is: yes...the spirit of your question can easily be answered again and again using any combination of: fossil records, species morphology, genetics, the predictive qualities of proposed taxonomy, shared base proteins, records of transitional forms (mammals with non mammalian features or sea mammals with limbs) and nested species hierarchy. Activism, vestigilism, ontogeny, adaptive strictures, independently implemented strictures in different species and so on. There are no led than 29/different ways to demonstrate what you call impossible. Unsatisfied by the answer? Pick up a respectable book and read about evolution. I highly recommended Richard Dawkins book "The greatest show on Earth". Easy to follow and understand, entertaining yet thorough and comprehensible with great diagrams and coloured images. By the time you are done...you'll be slightly embarrassed that you ever used trans-phylum as a way to inset doubt into evolutionary theory and your preposterous ridiculous bogus nonsense of the use of "leap of faith" with evolution. Oh please.

By hurling insults just makes you a GOP front runner and comical. Once again evolution is not the 800 pound gorilla in the room is abiogenisis. You think you know everything? You don't there structures on the dark side of the moon that NASA won't release. A hammer found in a rock millions of years old with a petrified handle. Plumbing was found in a cave in China with equal antiquity.
The expanse of the publics knowledge is being controlled by strong paradigms by both governmental and academic authorities.

Michael...you are hilarious.

Michael, we don't claim to know everything. It is Christians that claim to know how life was created. Abiogenesis should not even need to be discussed by Christians as they "know" their God created life. If they do discuss it then they are showing that the do not believe the Creation story. That is the 800 pound cousin in the room.

There are obscure photos of the Tower on the dark side of the moon which is a 5 mile high structure with the shape of a light bulb first spotted by the Russian Luna. NASA will not release close ups of this and a host of catalogued structures under FOIA sighting National Security in regard to the missing 30,000 photos from the far side of the Moon.
Comment by Reg The Fronkey Farmer on April 26, 2016 at 4:17pm

No Michael, there are not.

Comment by Unseen on April 26, 2016 at 5:28pm

The tower is not shaped like a lightbulb. It's an inverted Colossus of Rhodes.
