Woah, woah, wait. Are you saying that evolution is true because there's no proof that it isn't true, not because there's proof that there is? That's like saying that farries exist because there's no proof that they don't X) It's just..messed up in so many ways.

You can't prove something doesn't exist. It's impossible.

No, I'm saying no proof can prove that evolution is nonexistent.

Sure, but scientists have found extremely strong evidence that points towards it's existence.

As of now, The Chicken leads 8 - 5.

I know that God created our world, and he made you and me, the birds in the sky, the whales in the sea. All the answers to questions that you and I have can be found in the Bible. I do not care what others think; God is the Creator. How do I know that? If you're a Christian you probably know what I'm about to say. Jesus speaks to me every day through things in my life, in my mind, and through the Bible. No one is going to change what I believe, because my faith in Him is strong.
This is all the proof that I need:
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
John 3:16 For God loved us so much, that whoever believes in Him will have everlasting life.
Because I believe that He gave His Son, Jesus, to the cross to sacrifice himself for our sins, I am going to be with Him in Heaven forever. I hope you make this decision too, so that way you can be with us.

I think bringing God into the picture ruins the fun of the conversation.

Not that I disrespect God, but I think his name can bring an uneasy tone to a talk.

*shrugs* Sureal was talking about evolution, and I was just saying what I thought. I love fun, and didn't mean to take any out of the conversation. The only thing I don't understand, though is when Sureal began speaking his/her thoughts on it (and evolution) you never said what you've told me about taking out the fun , to her. I am entitled to my opinion, too.

It's all probably a matter of opinion, and no true answer will really suffice.
However, this is, in a matter of likelihood, one of the most difficult questions to ever be bestowed upon Man. The chicken, or the egg? The egg spawns a new chicken. Yet there must be a chicken to spawn the first egg... I can't give a definitive answer, and that's quite irritating. I want to say the chicken. Then it's all a matter of where the species came from.
Nice philosophy. I love these kinds of things.

Sorry if I offended you, Stars. What I meant was God makes things very serious, while Sureal pointed out facts. I think those two thinks have BIG differences.

In my humble opinion, I was taking the fun out of the topic somewhat. Which is partly why I insisted on us ending the debate.

(Although I do hope some people enjoyed reading our discussion - I certainly enjoyed the throw-about of evidence and arguments with Nicholas, and I hope he feels the same.)
I wrote the above just for you.
