I love Bill Nye and I agree with him in almost everything he says, so no offense to him... But his facial expressions are hilarious now days. I don't know if it's because he's gotten older or what, but if you watch him during his debates and speeches he just looks angry sometimes or really bored. I just thought I would share something I found funny, once again no offense to Bill Nye, Long live the science guy!!
@KiritoSAOHero, because he gets angry at small minded "scientists" who refuse to accept fact
@KiritoSAOHero, BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL! BILL!
Related Poll. Thumbs up if you believe in evolution.
@The beasty beast, thumbs up if you believe in creationism
@The beasty beast, there's no "believe" aspect to it, evolution is pretty much scientific fact. It's accepted by pretty much every credible scientist ever. Anyone who doesn't "believe" in evolution is just blind or stupid. No offence to anyone, of course, but it's true.
@ScubaDoo, yes you are very correct but I just tried not to offend anyone.
@The beasty beast, I don't really think we should start a fight, but just out of curiosity what kind of creationism? The kind that believes the earth is only 6,000 years old? Either way I believe in evolution but everybody is entitled to their own opinions, however I do agree with Bill Nye that we shouldn't teach children things like the earth only being 6,000 years old because as a society we have agreed to keep church and state separate, and modern science has soooo much evidence that the earth is over 6,000 years old that teaching otherwise in our schools would just be plain stupid. if you say "well the bible is the only evidence we need" great, really no sarcasm, fantastic! You can believe that but it's a religious thing and you can't bring that into schools as evidence.
@KiritoSAOHero, I just meant do you believe that god made Adam and Eve. I completely agree with what you are saying. I believe in evolution and I agree that creationism shouldn't be taught in schools because we now have so much evidence for evolution that it is now pretty much fact.
@ScubaDoo, actually believing has a large part in creationism and evolution because there is no definite proof for either so you have to use your opinions and values to formulate a belief in one or the other. Also just because you have a strong belief that is opposite from other people's doesn't mean you need to insult the intelligence of said people. I would never call you an ignorant sinner just because you believe in evolution. No offense, but it's true.
@The beasty beast, You can't deny evolution, you can disagree on what drives it (natural selection or God or space waffles) but evolution is pretty much set in stone.
@Allah Hu Akbar, it depends on the type of evolution your talking about. Micro evolution is the type that has been proven and a lot of creationists accepts it as fact as well. On the other hand there's macro evolution which is the huge argument between evolutionists and creationists.
@ScubaDoo, really... You are basically making fun of so many religions. I can't understand why people have this argument. I believe in creationism you believe in evolution. There is no scientific 100% proof that either are right or wrong. Please can we try to keep these to things of this app. It could start a very big war that none of of us want to be in. Ok? My belief is my belief, you belief is your belief, let's not argue over something as simple as this. Ok? I'm not saying your belief is wrong, I'm saying how do we know who's belief is right?
@TheEmptyChild, The only difference is time, they are essentially the same thing.
@Allah Hu Akbar, also in micro evolution new species and completely different animals don't appear they change slightly over long periods of time. Macro evolution is the one where everything originated from a single cell.
@TheEmptyChild, macro is entirely new species coming from others. Macro evolution comes from micro evolution over time.
@ScubaDoo, it's just a poll dude calm down. It's radicals with opinions like the ones you posted that give both sides a bad name.
@The Anime Man, there's no 100% scientific proof for gravity either, but it still affects my decision in a morning to walk down the stairs as opposed to out my window on the 7th floor
@TheEmptyChild, macroevolution is EXACTLY the same as micro evolution, just on a longer time scale. That argument is used by every creationist and it's just wrong.
@ScubaDoo, yes, microevolution has been proven, and I will even say that macro evolution is true too, which is still debatable but has a ton of evidence behind it. The problem is evolution has NEVER been proven in humans, which have a few VERY distinct very large differences from other animals. Is it possible that we evolved from apes? Yes. But it's also just as possible that we were specifically created around the basic model of other primates. Anyone who thinks we were created before the other animals of the earth are kidding themselves, but to think that we were created or pseudo created at some point in the timeline of history is a completely viable theory.
@ScubaDoo, I believe in creationism, but I don't believe the earth is 6000 years old. And technically evolution is not scientific fact because A) it is not repeatable and B) nor is it observable. And you're wrong about micro and macro evolution. The very definition of the words are different. Micro-evolution is defined as small changes in a species such as "Darwin's finches". Macro-evolution on the other hand is a change in species, ie from a fish to a mammal which has never been observed nor can it be repeated. Saying something is just wrong does not make so.
@The beasty beast, in my eyes i believe something in between god created evolution, he made a perfect enviroment for bacteria to spawn and grow but everything else that evolved from the bacteria no longer lived in the bacterias perfect world
@ScubaDoo, No offense, but you're stupid.
@The beasty beast, gonna get hate for this, but there is proof for creationism. I'm not going to go into detail because it would take a long time. But look it up. You only believe in evolution because it's what you were taught in school.
@The beasty beast, look what you started, let's all just leave this topic alone. Just believe what you want and don't cause wars.
@The beasty beast, Not believe, I see the years of research and credible evidence supporting it.
@Darth Tyranus, I'm sorry but your reply just makes me laugh. Whether or not religion is true, the fact is that evolution has proof behind it and creationism is the one you've simply been taught from birth.
@ScubaDoo, macro and microevolution are very different, as others here have properly defined. And there is evidence to support macro evolution in humans but there are so many holes in this theory. Many more holes than creationism.
@ScubaDoo, uuuummmm...yeah there is...
@The Anime Man, actually, the theory of creationism HAS been proven incorrect, or at least the 6,000 year old part. Recently, a team if scientists developed an extremely high powered telescope powerful enough to see to the edge of the universe where light from the Big Bang is still expanding outward. They also managed to approximate the distance from earth to the edge of the universe to be about 14 billion light years away. So even if the earth is not the center of the universe, the universe is exponentially older than 6000 years
@ScubaDoo, I hate to burst your bubble but its still a theory. Plus if Ham would have done his research he would have pointed out different stages in the evolution chain coexisted at one point. In evolution this would be impossible.
@Toaoavatar , it takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does to believe in creationism. How does that make you laugh?
@The Anime Man, 1000 up votes man thank you there is no need to needlessly insult people and to say evolution is scientific fact is ignorant since it is still called a theory. It is a theory with a lot if scientific evidence but still a theory. Most importantly though like you said leave the arguments off the app we all have our opinions but this isn't the place to duke it out
The concept of evolution teaches that life evolved from one life form, a simple one, right? So how the hell did that first one start? Some atoms would have to accidentally run into each other in such a way that this life form could think and replicate. And then that microscopic life form would have to "accidentally" turn into things like, dinosaurs, or worms, or Asa Akira. No effing way. I cant believe evolution. Adaptation maybe, but the diversity of animals had to have already existed.
@The beasty beast, This started out reasonable but got nasty pretty quick
@The beasty beast, negative people believe in creationism?
@The beasty beast, personally I am an evolutionist, but This debate turned nasty fast. The fact is....evolution is scientific fact. There is overwhelming evidence for it and next to none against it. Besides, if you think that the entirety of the bible is meant to be taken literally, you are misguided. I believe that there is a higher force, but the theistic creation theory is false.
@The beasty beast, y u do this??? Its bad enough that stukpixel creates religion/belief wars we dont need more of this! Egh you people.
@The beasty beast, it's proven fact so yeah.
@TheEmptyChild, there's no "proof" of gravity either. But creationism has been proven scientifically impossible so
@Countrywide, gravity isn't 100% proven either.
@Darth Tyranus, catholic school for 8 years. Switched in highschool but I never have believed in creationism even when my teachers tried. People are capable of independent thought.
@Aaappetheshaftr, edge of the universe hasn't been proven to exist. Like you're correct on the other parts but I think you're confused with the facts
@Implicit88, so is gravity. Time is a theory. Electromagnetism. Even how diseases spread is a theory. It's called germ theory btw.
@mancake, it doesn't turn into dinosaurs. It's a long ass process. Starting with microevolution. Mutations and breeding leading to changes in the species. More mutations. Etc etc.
@Aaappetheshaftr, sorry downvoted you by mistake
@A girl called Riley, yup. Theory not fact.
@Implicit88, actually two unrelated words. It's a theory not a law. Basically that means we can't prove it. You can have all the facts. But if you can't recreate it you can't prove it. But this also doesn't mean that's it's not true.
@Aaappetheshaftr, not quite I understand but where is this research? If light is moving away from us how can we see it?
@ScubaDoo, listen, pal. I'm going to try to be as professional as humanly possible, but saying something is true and saying that anyone who disagrees is "stupid or blind" does not make it the truth. I believe in creation. I believe in a higher power. I respect your opinion, however you saying that I'm flat out wrong is just childish. Also I would like to point out that saying "no offense to anyone" after saying something such as what you did does not excuse you from that action. Lastly I would like to make the observation that as a Christian I have a purpose. Even if I'm wrong, I have a deep felt joy that will follow me through my life. If I'm wrong, it doesn't really matter. Can the same be said for you? If anyone wishes to debate, I welcome it. But please attempt to be professional. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a good day, and apologies for the long post
@A girl called Riley, a theory is still a guess. Its hypothesis that hasnt been proven but has evidence to suggest its true. You can have all the facts to support your theory but that doesnt mean its true. What if you are missing key facts to disprove your theory?
@The beasty beast,
@A girl called Riley, I agree with u about the edge of the universe. We have no clue whether its finite or infinite its hard to imagine limited/umlimited space but just because we cant comprehend something doesnt mean it doesn't exist.
@Implicit88, nothing is proven. A theory can have some evidence against it and that's the beauty of it.
@ScubaDoo, I'm sorry, but, calling everyone who believes separately, "Stupid", or "blind", and then tacking on "no offense". Doesn't remove any offense. You just directly referred to me, and my entire family as stupid, because we disagree. Ken Ham may have failed to present evidence, and failed to handle that debate adequately, however. There is evidence supporting Creation, and historically, the Bible is proven factual in hundreds of ways. Aside from this, need I point out evolution does not Scientifically support itself. It is not observable, or in any way repeatable to the degree the theory relies on. And, also, will we not mention the gaping hole the query "where'd the gas come from" and it's pertinence? Evolution has a giant logic gap, a "great mystery" that demolishes it's fundamentals. I am sure I am likely to be downvoted, that's fine. It's an argument on the internet. But if you're going to say something offensive, have the decency to not say "no offense." Or not say anything.
@ScubaDoo, the only reason top scientists believe in eviction is because the ones that don't believe in it don't get famous because of their "unacceptable views." The stuff that they all say is fact about evolution is really all stupid and made up. If you know how to do your own research and experiments then you can find out yourself but most people can't so that's why they just believe in evolution (which is totally retarted)
@Batman, as someone who's taking my masters degree in a scientific field, I imagine my supervisor might beg to differ.
@The beasty beast, ok, I don't like to get into stuff like this but I have to say it. I am a science major, and a lot of your ideas about theories are way off. A theory is something that has been proven many times but can not be observed. That means that evolution can be proven but not necessarily observed. You guys are thinking of hypotheses when you say "theory." A hypothesis is something that could be observable and proven, but not necessarily correct. Also, when you all say "there's no chance a single cell could just form," you are sort of right, but also wrong. See, in labs people have tried to make life. We replicate the conditions of early earth to try and "make" life. Of course, it is impossible to just suddenly get a cell. What does happen, and has been observed in labs various times, is that little bubble like membrane form. These membrane replicate themselves by splitting. We have even been able to create very primitive RNA in labs. We just haven't gotten to getting themboth
@Cocconut Head, at the same time. And obviously even if we did it would be billions of years before they developed into cells, even in a lab. But these things form all on their own without outside help. People don't realize that bacteria only began showing up about 2 billion years ago. The earth is about 4.6 billion years old. That leaves a lot of time for RNA to form. And in labs it forms in just a few weeks in the right conditions... And just for comparison a billion is a huge number.. A billion seconds ago was 30 years ago... So 4.6 billion seconds would be about 138 years long. So 4.6 billion years is a huge amount of time. Sorry for my long and confusing post.
@The beasty beast, My Science teacher is teaching us evolution and she said no debates about creation so crisis was averted!
@ScubaDoo, I wouldn't call them stupid. They simply believe in something to the point where they don't accept scientific circumstance as proof. They are ignorant, but not stupid.
@ScubaDoo, I was summarizing your comment.
@A girl called Riley, evolution is also a theory. I'm personally a creationist but I disagree with the 6000 years idea and I also believe in micro evolution. However the point I'm trying to make is that neither side has enough evidence to be called "truth" there is a theory with a creator and another theory without.
@Batman, well I say that you're stupid
@ScubaDoo, and really you can't believe in science, you understand and accept the data and theory. To believe in something is to have something integral to your way of life and it rarely changes, you can't really deny science because it is what is is.
@Jim Dandy, No, you're stupid.
@ScubaDoo, You completely insulted millions of people then proceeded to say that you didn't mean any offense.
@The beasty beast, I believe in it but also in God. I believe God created evolution and that as a christian you really shouldnt take creationism literally only figuratively and that science and religion coincide with each other.
@The beasty beast, why not both??! I believe that there is a God and he used the power of evolution to create Adam and Eve. Legit?
@ScubaDoo, I will not accept the ideas of evolution until they create and have proof for the origin of life, otherwise Christianity is just as logical.
@TheEmptyChild, I don't want to seem like a complete douche but have you done any research? I mean have you even googled evolution? We literally have millions of documents with proof of evolution happening before our eyes. We have observed it in birds, flowers, insects, and tons of mammals, as well as collecting thousands of transitional fossils, DESPITE the fact that fossilization is rare as hell. So maybe do your research before saying "oh there's no proof."
@The beasty beast, the Catholic Church believes in evolution. It believes that things have changed and adapted to live differently than they used to. However, what they DON'T believe is that humans evolved from apes. If humans evolved from apes then that means that we are no different than apes and that therefore we can kill each other like animals. We can all agree that mindless killing is wrong, can't we?
@TheEmptyChild, Macro evolution is just micro evolution over a longer period of time. That's literally the only thing separating them.
@SWAT, No there isn't a difference.
@Implicit88, Go look up what a scientific theory is. right. Now. Just a theory is a bull crap thing. A scientific theory is the highest level of science. It's basically fact.
@YellowFlash, You are wrong as well. A scientific theory is the highest level of science. For a hypothesis to be elevated to a theory, it needs to be observed multiple times and proven true. It's basically fact. It's really freaking hard to get a hypothesis to the level of a theory
@mancake, that is how it happened. Chemical bonds, especially with carbon, and the right environment, will cause life to come forth. If you look at us scientifically, we are just an amalgamation if complex chemical bonds.
@A girl called Riley, No. A law is just a description of a natural phenomena, like gravity or energy. A theory is an explanation if natural phenomena, like evolution, homeostasis, germ theory. It's basically fact unless some reality shattering event happens which changes everything.
@Implicit88, Yet again spouting bull crap without understanding scientific definitions.
@The Anime Man, thank you! Couldn't have said it any better my self
@Agent Rustyfork, evolution is not opinion though and you are wrong 100%. Creationism has been proven wrong scientifically several times while evolution has been scientifically proven true by thousands of scientists globally. You have to be literally ignoring everything about it to not know its true. I don't care if your Christian. It's very ignorant to not find evolution to be true while believing in the bull crap that is creationism.
@The beasty beast, All right, what the hell people? I get if you don't agree with it, but downvote it? Seriously? Creationism might not be scientifically sound, but it's one side of a legitimate debate, and thus it must have some sort of credibility. Have some damn respect.
@ScubaDoo, Right, calling someone stupid isn't offensive.
@The beasty beast, no one will read this, but I feel obligated to say that creationism 1) doesn't always mean the earth is 6,000 years old 2) isn't necessarily different from evolution (some people believe in "theistic evolution"- look it up) and 3) doesn't mean the "Big Bang" didn't happen. The Biblical record the event was written hundreds/ thousands of years afterwards and was passed down through legends. It could be poetic/ warped (think about misconceptions about celebrities/ historical figures times 100) and it not agreeing with science in every aspect can be credited to that. Christianity and science aren't enemies. Christians that refuse to face facts just make it seem like that
@Allah Hu Akbar, Lamarkian theory was set in stone until Darwin's theory. People also used to think that the Earth was the center of the universe. Science has a tendency to shift as new evidence emerges, and our technology isn't sound. Evolution is a theory backed up by loads of evidence, and even as a creationist, I acknowledge many of evolution's concepts as truth. But it is by no means a proven fact.
@The Special Zubat, S/he asked out of curiosity. No harm in that. What started this were the people who decided that creationism is "stupid."
@The beasty beast, This poll was a good idea. I'm sorry it erupted into this.
@KiritoSAOHero, but when you look at the evidence it becomes contradictory in many ways. When you look at the 9500 year old tree it is a tree which dies off then a new tree grows on top of its root system so they used carbon dating to test its age but carbon dating itself only works if everything started a certain way and didnt change over time yet evolution itself is focused around change bringing into question why they disregard the possibility of change when determining the effectiveness of carbon dating. Another good point is that all the evidence which is used by evolutionists is also used by creationists and the only difference is the starting point in their beliefs which leads to a different explanation as to why it happened that way. If you're ever in Kentucky even though you don't believe in creationism I'd suggest going to the creation museum. It doesn't just say "God did it" like many uneducated believers do but rather shows the evidence which brought them to the conclusion.
@ScubaDoo, that's the same thing they said about the gods in ancient Rome and Greece
@ScubaDoo, Actually evolution is still only scientific theory due to the lack of observational data so there is a belief aspect to it due to the fact that other theories do exist which could also end up being correct in the end despite evolution being the clear favorite in many countries. Many of the theories which comprise the basis of evolution also get disproven by more acurate technologies or abandoned when a theory with more evidence arrives meaning that evolution has never been a complete fact but rather a large number of theories amounting to one general theory which has been accepted as fact by society despite lacking the evidence to actually become fact in a pure scientific view.
@Remilia Scarlet,I asked for a professional debate, not a child saying "na uh!" About my arguments. Since clearly you do not have the ability to remain professional and civil, you will receive no such pleasure in dragging me down to your level. Please, go about your life, and have a good day.
@Agent Rustyfork, Realy? Your response in the first place is like a long winded way of saying "I don't believe in this becuz reasons, but don't respond to me. I afraid of the facts." If you don't want a response, don't F0cking post.
@SimonPetrikov, Nothing in science is absolute fact, that is why I said 'pretty much'.
@TheEmptyChild, I hope Satan rapes your butthole when he comes to take his people to salvation.
@Remilia Scarlet, at one point the earth was beleived to be flat and that was a theory that was broke. We also beleived atoms were the smallest things in the universe and that was also cracked. Laws are usually used to makw up theories. Theories are when people try to use laws( or explain certain laws) to explain an observation. So, for example, we can calculate attraction (law) but do we know why(theory)? One more question is why dont we have other humans? Evolution would mandate there would/should be more.
@SimonPetrikov, yes people fail to see that being a creationist doesnt mean u have to agree with ham. Ham is merely one person with one "theory".
@Allah Hu Akbar, nothing is science is truly fact. true even for death. How can we know if we removed everyones hearts that everyone wil die? All it takes is that one person change.
@Implicit88, So you don't know what a scientific theory is.
@Remilia Scarlet, I have debated with your kind before, and I really just don't have time to debate with someone who refuses to remain professional. I welcome debates, not children trying to sound older then they really are. All due respect to you, but I really just don't care to debate with someone such as yourself
@Remilia Scarlet, ok, I would like to apologize for my previous comment and explain my actions. Firstly, calling you childish was disrespectful, and unprofessional. Secondly, my reasons for not wanting to debate with you are as follows. 1) I believe that arguments such as these cannot be truly debated on a funny pics app (thus my comment with my email address) 2) your first rebuttal comment was simply that I was wrong. No facts, nothing. 3) I've debated with people like you before and it is simply a waste of time. If the things I say are just responded to with comments such as the one you used, then no matter how many facts I produced or how much logic I used, my arguments would fall upon def ears. I mean you no disrespect whatsoever, and I wish you well. Good day
@Agent Rustyfork, 2) Well, you are wrong. Denying evolution is denying fact. Which is like the definition of wrong. Whats even worse is that you believe in creationism, which has been proven wrong countless times. There is your facts sir.
@Remilia Scarlet, denying evolution is quite credible, and I could say that evolution has been proven wrong as well. Thus far you have listed no credible evidence other then your own word against mine. This pointless banter wearies me. Especially on this particular app that has been designated for humor. If you truly wish to debate, then just email me. Otherwise, good day.
@Agent Rustyfork, well sadly I cannot give you links via this app. Maybe when funnyism site has a forum, I'll link them for you. All I can ask of you is to go research evolution yourself. There are thousands of peer reviewed sources for evolution on the web and at your local library.
@Agent Rustyfork, Honestly, I'm worried about you. Creationism is ignorance of science at its finest. It has been proven wrong for decades yet people such as yourself still believe in it. Ignorance breeds ignorance brother. I just hope that you learn about it and recant the silly belief of creationism. At the very least, that your children will not believe and learn the fact that is evolution.
@Agent Rustyfork, Evolution is an amazing thing in of itself. Life
@Remilia Scarlet, evolving over millions of year through small mutations. From one unicellular organism to the organisms we have today. It's much more amazing and astounding than some creation myth.
I have research led evolution, as I have creation, and I simply find creation a more viable explanation
@Agent Rustyfork, So basically what you are saying is that you shoved your fingers into your ears and screamed "LALALALALA!!!" How typical. I should have expected this from you. Of course you would ignore all the evidence supporting evolution.
@Remilia Scarlet, I could say the same for you. However during this debate I have attempted to remain civil, and the only thing you have produced is a lot of insults and name calling. I wish you well in your search for truth, but honestly at this point I doubt you will truly ever discover it. You will go about your life in ignorance, believing that you're right. You probably believe the same of me. However, if I'm wrong, I will never know it. I will be a better person for it. If you are wrong however, then you will be quite aware of it. As a final statement, I would like to say that I will pray for you, weather you like it or not. And I will respect your choice in belief, despite the fact that I happen to disagree. My simple request is that you do the same for me (that is respect my belief). I truly wish you the best in life. Good day.
@Agent Rustyfork, I have done my research. I used to be a creationist and just like you I denied evolution. But I couldn't keep
@Remilia Scarlet, up the facade. I wanted to cling on to creationism, but I knew
@Remilia Scarlet, it was a waste. I was up against an unstoppable force, an unmoving object. Evolution was fact. My mind and heart changed. I accepted evolution and threw away creationism. It was holding me back It was a chain of ignorance. Evolution was my key to cast off those chains.
@Agent Rustyfork, I hope that you cast off your chains of
@Remilia Scarlet, Ignorance one day.
@The beasty beast, why the down votes do you hate creationism and or belifes we respect your belifes
@mancake, 1. The start of life is more complicated than that 2. Are you saying it's much more likely that a magical, invisible man decided that he was bored so he created life in order for that life to worship him? Check your ancient religions, many of the ones surrounding Israel have huuge similarities to the creation myth from the bible and a lot of these religions are much older than Judaism. So really the bible is the oldest plagiarized document in history.
@mancake, when methane, ammonia, water, and hydrogen mix under an extreme electrical charge they can form organic materials (this experiment was proven) such as amino acids, dna, and rna, and when these combine with water can form single celled organisms, which then devour more organic material until they have to much and split into two. Over time glitches occurred and occurred and occurred within the dna, new organic materials began to form and be absorbed by these single celled organism and eventually advanced life began. These massive numbers of single celled organisms continued and these glitches occurred independently through out different ones, leading to a wide variety of multi cell organisms, who's dna glitched and changed (especially under the heavy radiation of the early earth) until they became more and more advanced. Fish form and eventually land animals formed, and then turned into things like dinosaurs, worms, and Asa Akira through 4 billion years.
You can be a Christian and believe in evolutionism....I am a Christian, and actually, the Old Testament is proven by science more than any other doctrine. There was a massive flood. The Jews left Egypt...it's proven by science. If evolution is our way of explaining God's creation, theirs nothing wrong with it. It's a miracle, either way.
@The Great Eye, THERE'S. God, autocorrect is gonna get me gassed by the G.N.'s.
@The Great Eye, yeah I'm a Christian and believe in adaptation. Not really evolution but why can't it be possible that God created science for us to understand stuff better?
@The Great Eye, well I mean, the bible CLEARLY states that that's not what happened. It states that all life was created by God over 6 days, not by evolution. I think if you're going to believe the bible, you might as well believe all of it
@The Great Eye, that's not true if you watched this debate bill explains why there was no great flood.
@Ross Geller, it also says in the bible, that a day in heaven is thousands of years on earth. So, it's completely possible that before days were measurements of time, here on earth, God stated, "The earth was made in 7 days." Rather than the alternative, which is complicated, and would have been too much, at the early time in history that Genesis was written.
@The Great Eye, Yes there are others with this belief! The natural laws of science are just the rules God made. He could have made the rules way obsurd like gravity working backwords and we would still call it science :P
@The Great Eye, but also take into account the record of the process of the creation of man. It says that man was formed from the dust of the earth and God breathed life into him. That's not evolution
@Salty, honestly, there is evidence that there was. I took an entire class, in college, "The Beliefs and Evidence of the Old Testament". The evidence is there. I completely respect Bill Nye. He's extremely intelligent. However, he is a human. While I don't know this for sure, I would much rather believe what I have spent time studying, than the word of someone who is "supposed" to know...Does that make sense.
@Ross Geller, evolution states that everything, began with one tiny cell on earth. Including humans. Why not, God, seeing that it was good, took a piece if "dirt" or cells of the earth, commanded them to form, and become living?
@The Great Eye, you have your way if seeing things and I have mine. As long as you trust in Jesus, I don't care what your beliefs are
@Ross Geller, Agreed. There's only one part of the bible that is unforgivable not to believe. And creation isn't it. So, it really doesn't matter.
@Ross Geller, Job 36:26 says "How great is God- beyond our understanding!" So we can never know what happened until we can hang out with God and talk about it.
@The Great Eye, THANK YOU
@chella922, for what? Lol
@Ross Geller, technically only life can create life. So he would have to extended his life to ours much like we extens life to our babies. So even if he made bacteria first he still would yave indirectly made us.
@The Great Eye, you are correct. Believing in only one is a fools choice. There is no way life could uave spontaneous ly heen created by any of the big bang theories. Super hot are super cold would have killed life if anything.
@The Great Eye, wow, down vote parade.
@The Great Eye, I agree. We'll never know exactly how creation happened until we're in the sky ourselves, so why debate it? The important thing is Jesus
@TheJakeanator272, but the trouble is as we discover more reasons as to why things happen scientifically, there's less room for a "god" at what point do we accept that clearly the most basic of particles was not made by someone, but formed due to a scientifically explained observation and thus, renders the idea of god pointless in a scientific study
@The Antagonist, you have a point, I guess some things don't really go together. But I just believe God created everything, whether it be cows or the idea of math. But who really knows
@TheJakeanator272, you say that it might be that God created science so that humans may better understand what happens around us. I think that you might be onto something there, but that
@The Great Eye, there is actually no evidence that Jews were ever in Egypt. By evidence I mean archaeological evidence, the bible can say whatever it wants but without physical archaeological evidence it's hard to take it seriously. There is also absolutely no evidence for a global flood so I'm really confused what part of the Old Testament you actually think has been proven true.
@TheJakeanator272, because God doesn't exist. God wants us to believe in him through faith, which is the belief in something without evidence. It seems awfully strange that he would want us to use science when he doesn't seem to like science, research, logic, reason, morality or pretty much anything else except blind faith.
Thumbs up if you believe in God
@Your PUNishment, Which one?
@Poser Pete, any
@Poser Pete, God would be Christ. god (lowercase g) is any other god
@Kenalk, yes and no. That only applies if you are in a sect of Protestant that believe Jesus was the embodiment of god and not the son of him. Also, it is a little insensitive for you to assume that your god is the only one deserving a capital. The only gods that don't have a capital are those that (in that language) have a different name. (Ex. Allah is God. So in English we would still refer to him as God.)
@Kenalk, actually God isn't the Christian gods name, it's Yahweh. Please don't let your religious arrogance claim the basic name for a divine being when other people believe in their own. Either way it doesn't exist and I know religion doesn't teach respect for other religions but if you could at least try that'd be great.
One of there pastors at my church is a very smart scientists. He obviously believes in creationism. I really don't see why people are on here bashing it. It's a belief and if you don't have it, you should still respect it.
@PizzaWarrior, you don't Have to respect someone else's belief. If I told you that I believe that Elvis appears in the hearts of every person and bestows upon them a lovingness for waffles if they believe in him then I can't imagine you would respect that. We are forced to tolerate religious belief but we don't have to respect it. Also, if he is both a scientist and a Christian then he can't be very smart since both religion and science contradict each other and he's choosing to favor nonsense to reason.
To everyone that says evolution and creationism are equal because of no 100% proof: evolution at least does have some evidence making them unequal.
@JaredDuck The Loner, well that's not necessarily true, for just a hundred years ago we believed the T-Rex walked up right and even longer ago we believed that we were the center of our solar system. Saying science is superior just because it has evidence doesn't mean that it is accurate and can't be changed. I believe in god but I love learning about science and how everything works. most of the bible is a metaphor apparently even one of the popes admitted to saying that Adam and Eve were metaphors for human kind. In the end both help us live one physically and the other spiritually.
@a spoon, I don't see why anything that later seems silly in the bible is classified as a "metaphor". Some time in the future I bet even people will say Jesus is a metaphor.
@dunsparce, it's amazing how Christians just keep making more and more of the bible a metaphor as science disproves more and more of it. Just a few hundred years ago all of the bible was considered true but now that we have more scientific evidence much of the bible is now a metaphor. It's amazing you are able to read the bible and be able to determine which parts are true and which are metaphors. Let me guess, is a metaphor any part that is completely ridiculous, immoral or evil and every part that's true is any part that seems somewhat believable or that is nice and lovey?
I have faith in that we were created by a divine entity. That has nothing to do with evolution. What we can observe and understand is a different plane than our origin or spirituality. Believing the earth is 6000 years old is neither creationism or evolutionism, that's just ignorance to some information.
@Polymath , actually to say that you have faith, the belief in something without evidence, is just ignorant
The Andy Bernard meme is not in The Office
GET READY TO DIE
i always figured science answered the question "How?" and theology answered the question "Why?" If that makes sense to you
@Noodleated Soup, we don't know why no one does until you die and maybe not even then in the words of Brian Griffen that's the point if the human experience to figure out why we're here and I am sure that the reason is more fantastic than we could possibly conceive
@Noodleated Soup, the words of an atheist
*Sigh* I stay up instead of sleep for this? What am I doing with my life.
@ZZTopComment, worth it.
Bill Nye the Everything Guy
I used to like Bill Nye as a kid. Now he's a bitter, politically obnoxious old f*ck. It's a damn shame too, because that man used be a idol to so many people that he now sh*ts on.
*charges watch vigorously*
Ok, so this is a big public issue I understand, and from what I've seen, there are 4 sides to it. There are the radicle religious, the radicle atheist, the "I don't give a damns", and the "Why can't we just get along. Now, I'll start off with the fact that yea, I'm an atheist. But I went to church for more than %75 of my life, and that was my choice. I agree that we should get along, but I feel like it's becoming a pure annoyance now to hear people say," Everyone is entitled to there own opinions ", not Thats not true, but it's annoying because we all.
@Hal9001, Sorry, accidental send xP But anyways, I don't like all the people thinking they're all high and mighty because they keep yelling at everyone to stop fighting. Especially the ones who then say," Yea, but you guys on this side are stupid"

Stuckpixel!!! You're tearing us apart!!!
I believe in creationism: that man created God
I doubt this app had engineers in here I think everyone in here is a bunch of school kids
I believe in creationism, because I don't believe in logic.
BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY. By the way, who else watched the entire debate?
It all makes so much sense now....woah
I'm sorry I annoyed with my grammar
Dat last one.
Nye looks like Abraham Lincoln
That's whole load of WAT
Bill Nye does not approve of your antics...
