Re: Challenge, who's up for it?
hejsan

I'll just add to what razd wrote.

jerker writes:

If evolution can be established creation is disproved


razd stated it was a logical fallacy, which is correct. the funny thing is that creationists (of the literalist variety) use this very fallacy.

If evolution is falsified it promotes creationism

just because one is proven (or falsified) doesn't make the other automatically right.

it could be that God did create the universe--and thus there is still creation. it could be that God did not create the universe--and evolution could be wrong.

Re: Challenge, who's up for it?
aha.

I agree with you on genesis being defunct--but watch out. there are two genesis stories of creation. it's only the first that has the seven days. the second one has the infamous "rib" story (origin of women).

sa, var ar lund? (jag can inte stava ret pa svensk, tyvar, men jag hoppas at du forstar vad jag forsokar at tala om)(oh, and my written grammer is pretty bad, too)

oh, it looks like you got quote boxes down, but we do have smilies, such as
:),;),:(,:laugh:,:mad:,:o:,:D, and so forth. check out the smilies legend when you make a post.
just in case you didn't know.

Re: Challenge, who's up for it?
only reason I know swedish--my mom is. I was in stockholm just this past summer--Lidingo to be precise.

came to the chat, seeing as how you're on right now

probably shouldn't continue in the off-topic vein
