--sorry im very new and wasn't sure where to post this--
i have been here for a few hours reading, looking, and thinking about posting (ok i made one post).
I would call myself christian, well Roman Catholic actually, and I think of myself as a creationist. After reading posts on here from others who say they are creationists, I am embarrassed to call myself one, geez! I realize people make errors (I'm really good at this, as you can probably see from my grammar), and the scientists have thier own language, but come on! The creationists make some generalized opinions and think they are stating facts that even I can see are wrong.
This will be a learning expierience for me and that is why I am here. I hope to say something but for now I will sound like a evolutionist so I'm just going to keep reading. Some of this stuff is really funny.
After talking smack I will now open myself up for it.
I am a creationist because of a few simple reasons/personal opinions on the issue.
1. I do not think that either side of the issue has definate 100% proof, and reguardless on what side of the fence you are on requires some ever so small amount of faith in your side of the arguement. even if it is just faith that science will find the answer and is on the right path. If I personally am going to pick a side and use faith, my faith goes to God a creationism. I could be wrong (it happens multiple times daily), and then I would have to switch sides.
2. The other probable reason for me is that I am not a positivist. Positivism is not the only philosophy out there when it comes to reasearch, and I believe Positivism is esentially flawed (because it relies on observation and objectivity).
other than that evolution sounds great.
