church politics and science
Now they are discovering the bones of pre-human species, and Christian fundamentalistist denounce such things as herasy and the teachings of the devil.
Doesn't anyone see a connection here?
Doesn't anyone else realize that the Bible is just a collected book of stories that were edited so that really ignorant people could in a limited way, understand the origin of man?
Trust me on this. God did not LITERALLY create earth in 7 twenty four hour days, and He did not create man overnight.
A day in biblical terms is an unspecified passage of time, but bronze age man could not phatom such things. So they wrote "day" to indicate a passage of time.
Yet literalists insist it was as the bible protrays it.
And thus I question that man is any more intelligent now than he was 2000 years ago.
I am also a scientist. I know and understand the "scientific method" - Google it.
You said "Now they are discovering the bones of pre-human species...". The reason the Theory of Evolution is named that is BECAUSE IT IS A THEORY. There is no fossil or any other record that shows that there is any such thing as "pre-human" bones. That is is covered by the "missing link" (Google it), which PROVES there is no connection between animals and humans. Any REAL evolutionary connection between animals and humans would have occurred CONSTANTLY (evolution is NOT a "one time" event) and also would have to be still occurring now, in real time, as mentioned by Johnny.
