I would like to ask creationists on this forum why the idea of evolution apparently bothers you so much. It doesn't bother me I'm second cousin to an Ape. Why does it bother you?

I am asking creationists, not evolutionists.

It just strikes too close to home....

It doesn't violate any physical laws at all, you Goddamned liar (and coward).

Re OP: I am not a creationist, but I will offer an answer anyway. The reason is: evolution is contrary to explicit claims of the bible -- and that's all. There are many biblical literalists who suppose that every bit of the bible is absolutely true (even though it is trivial to show that it is not), and rather than adjust their zeitgeist to what the evidence actually shows, they prefer to believe the biblical tales.

And if I may add to that, Robert, many if not most creationists are not excited enough about the whole concept of evolution to really try to understand what it is all about. Our creationist punters here trot out the same errors in understanding time and again - one of the most obvious being *noone has ever observed a (dog) evolving into a (cat)*, or whatever the absurdity of choice may be.

Furthermore they won't read easily understandable texts to try to get to grips with the details of evolution because of the reputation of the authors, especially if I may say, Dawkins, that *very dangerous man* as a priestly relative of mine once told me. To a creationist, Dawkins and his ilk are persona non grata, somewhat akin to Satan I suspect.

"the darweenies try to foist their nonsense off on us to validate the church/religion of atheism" (sic)
>There are plenty of evolutionists here who believe in God. One need not be an atheist to accept evolution as a viable scientific theory. The theory of evolution is not concerned with the existence or nonexistence of a deity. It is apparent that your woeful ignorance also extends to the field of philosophy. Atheism is the antithesis of religion.

Which laws of physics, specifically?

"the darweenies try to foist their nonsense off on us to validate the church/religion of atheism"

Please correct your fallacious logic and then post again.

That's vague. Can you tell us precisely how evolution contradicts physics and probability?

"if i did yo uwould just argue about it"

In other words, you have absolutely no idea how to.

Yep. IOW you can't.

Good luck with trying to get the horse's backside to do that ...

What the creos won't tell you is that they are terrified that their myths are not true.

Mickey says:
But I already know what evolutionists will tell me. I do want to know if any creationists can tell me why it makes them uncomfortable. So far none have, maybe none will, but I'll keep listening. But I'm not asking evolutionists.

But the horse's backside has already told you it's because he believes in "truth and facts." It's his sceintific undermerstanding that is offended.

Mickey says:
He's telling me he's not offended by evolution, it's just not justified logically. I can figure that out myself.

SinSeeker says:
I'm afraid I must respectfully disagree. The sentence "the darweenies try to foist their nonsense off on us to validate the church/religion of atheism" sounds to me like he's offended by evolutionary theory.

Mickey says:
I didn't say he wasn't offended by evolution, I said he's not admitting to it.

I really don't need evolutionists to explain this to me.

One objection I've seen is "If you tell people they came from animals, that gives them permission to act like animals."
Nonsense, of course, but often said.
