Creationism is a mental illness
lori100: creationism---the belief that the universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation, as in the biblical account, rather than by natural processes such as evolution. ----from this I would say all is created and set up to evolve by a creator...not by some cosmic accident......and all our current beliefs will also evolve as we learn more...

Nicotina: Please, please, please, do not lump those of us who suffer from a mental illness in the same group as those think that creationism is real. It is an insult to people living with a mental illness.
Compare Creationist with Act of Godist ; "God put the stone there which made you trip up"....
Anyone can think maybe a serious of bad luck needed the question " Oh God " and if you are being bothered by a bad questioner the answer " God did it " could always be helpful.
WildFire_: It takes a lot more intellect to study evolution than it does to blindly follow a religion, any relgion.
I've found that most religious fanatics have but a rudimentary understanding of their holy book and fail to practice the fundamental tenets of their religion.
WildFire_: It does in fact take a real genious and years of studying to understand DNA and RNA.
It only takes a few seconds to join a cult. Carry on Bobby.
Geoff: I'm guessing you used spell check for all of those big words. But not "they're"
I am not saying that mental illnesses are a bad thing, but they are something you need treatment for. Anti-intellectual wishing on a cosmic santa claus is certainly up there on the delusional end of the scale.
Blackshoes: off topic. You mentioned spelling'. Below is a My post from Craigslist Rants and Raves
The Truth Hurts ! Spelling LOL
" Typical " If you cannot spell ! No matter how difficult or easy the word ! You cannot spell !
What is it about spelling, correct grammar ,and punctuation; that just sends some people over the Edge !
It's Craigslist ! Not the Brown University linguistic Laboratory ! Really , think about it ! No one can spell " ,At every Spelling Bee " 99% of the contestants lose " there's only one winner ! If these Spell Nazis could spell ! The spelling Bee would never end !
Everyone is good ,and bad at something !
Everybody is a Genius.
But If You Judge a Fish by Its Ability to Climb a Tree,
It Will Live Its Whole Life Believing that It is Stupid.
This post will most likely be flagged again ',IMO by a liberal that doesn't have the ( intellect ) to understand that we all have the right to our own opinion ! Calling me Names within replies ', only proves my point !
Geoff: Blackshoes, your ignorance is only surpassed by your obnoxiousness. Calling a pig a pig isn't insulting it, it's making an observation.
Humans are not monkeys. I have never said that humans are monkeys. I'd say that in your case, I think an exception might be called for, but I've known some charming monkeys and it would an insult to them.
Lori, Which god? The Abrahamic god never claimed to have made the world; all we have is stone aged myths written down centuries after they were told around campfires by goatherds. It just happens that a cult in ancient Rome managed to get the ear of a Caesar and they went mainstream. That doesn't speak much for the veracity of the stories.
lori100: You mean Jesus? True, I don't believe Jesus claimed to create the world. The more I read about Jesus the more it seems he was a highly evolved teacher to demonstrate abilities we have within us...other beings have shown similar abilities of Jesus' miracles. Much of the bible and teachings are allegories and myths....it was the way of teaching truths to the masses. It is common that we are shown through actions and stories rather than given direct answers and solutions. If the Earth is a school as the greys and Seth have said ,then we are to learn on our own with limited help....just like a teacher in school who doesn't give many answers but wants the students to figure it out. From encounters there seems to be one God and maybe other lowers gods ( more aware and evolved souls)....and we have been told we too will be teachers to others eventually...
No. That's not what I meant. I mean if you're going to start throwing the evidence out of the window in favour of delusion and myth, which delusions and which myths do you pick? The ones that are prevalent where you are raised? The ones that you happen to find palatable? The ones that "feel right"?
I'll stick with evidence.
Blackshoes: Really Deoff and what evidence would that be ? More assumptions and opinions from monkeys !
If you had even one Knowledgeable piece of Evidence .You would have shown by now !
Please don't forget to cover your Pseudoscientific theories with eons of time n' hundreds of processes that only exist in the imagination of those that agree with Evolution !
Too accept that DNA or RNA could have developed by chance
What a crock of Sh&t yet you call me a moron
What's even scarier is that intelligent people believe this crap .
