Re: World History student needs our input
Jen,
You're asking a question that has been asked quite a few times. The fact is any time you have differing ideas that are so near and dear to the person or group, then you are going to get controversy. The reason this one gets so heated is because it hits at the heart of Christianity and science. If one wins over the other their goes a belief system or a way of life. For christians it really hits hard because the bible doesn't speak of evolution it speaks about a GOD that created. I believe when people try to say something like... oh let's say; people evolved from apes, it is a slap in the face of our creator. If we say things against the pro-evolutionists they feal it's a slap in their face so neither of us are all too happy. So it's either a slap in GOD's face or the face of an evolutionist. The answer will come in the end not any sooner. So we get to argue in the meantime. And like said previously, this world is secular the more that can get in the way of spreading christian views the better. Shalom. -Z

Re: World History student needs our input
it has to do with what we decide to teach as science
Exactly, there is your debate. I, a christian say GOD created. You say (I assume) that life, in general, evoloved. And so it goes. I say we should teach creationism and evolution with the same vigor and let the students study it for themselves and come to an educated conclusion. Anybody here have a problem with that. -Z

Re: World History student needs our input
What I'm getting at is that the world, religious or not, is sinfull. And "worldly things" are aka sinfull things in general. That's what I'm getting at. I know the world has a religious majority, but it's still worldly. If not why would there be such a problem with catholic priests and young boys and girls? -Z

Re: World History student needs our input
Let me get this correct. You're saying that most churches believe what the bible doesn't teach. That God didn't create that He created so to evolve? And you are speaking for the vast majority of churches as was I so who exactly is correct? I for one have never heard any Pope or christian scholar say anything except the opposite of what you are implying. I guess everyone that went to theology classes and recieved there diplomas and doctorates are wrong.....I'll let them know. -Z

Re: World History student needs our input
lol. Yeah, I guess it would be a free-for-all. BYOB. Bring your own bible. Nobody is going to let anyone come close to a school if a bible is in hand.
