How would you even know what the "original" function was?

Exactly what is written in 2 tim 4 3-4.


quote:
2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Yup, sounds exactly like creationism: turning away from the truth and toward fables.

Science is self-correcting. How is that a bad thing?

Isn't correcting yourself better than staying wrong, like religion does?

You need to point out where "religon" is incorrect in order for your point to be valuable.


We have a lot of topics on that. Feel free to join any of them.

And I'm sure you have a list of issues and in all likelyhood you are anchoring to someone else.


All of my issues with the Bible are anchored in the Bible. You don't even have to go any further than Genesis 1 to find errors.

DOCJ writes:

In anycase, please reference 1 or 2 issues if you want to be productive in this conversation.


Issues with the Bible are not productive in this topic. Kindly go to an appropriate topic and I'll be glad to discuss them. My guess is that you'll drop out before I do.

Re: Evolution has a built-in stopping point
As I said, there's no need to start a new discussion. There are plenty of existing ones that you can join.

I think the Genesis "kind" refers to, not the original creatures God created, but to the "kinds" that exist now (or more precisely, the "kinds" that existed at the time Genesis was written).


Genesis uses "kind" much like we do: "What kind of dog is that?" Chihuahuas produce Chihuahuas and German Shepherds produce German Shepherds - but Genesis does not say that kinds can not change. That is something that creationists made up.
