I'm Glad I'm Going Down South

http://www.cnn.com/2005/SHOWBIZ/Movi....ap/index.html

I'm starting to realize how great it is down South. Those are my type of folks, can't wait to get down there for the weather and the GRITS (Girls Raised In The South) as well

Never mind millions and millions of years of hard physical evidence, just have faith that it's all wrong! Only then can you realize the truth. That an invisible man who lives in the sky created us on a whim only a couple thousand years ago.

I've been in numerous parts of the south, and while the belief in creationism is there, so too is the belief in evolution. If you are trying to characterize the entire south as being creationist then you are sadly setting yourself up for disappointment, not to mention insulting a great number of intelligent and rational human beings who don't believe in creationism and happen to live in the south.

Have fun!

Dude, lets not start another debate, even though it sounds like you have become a terrible victim of the evolutionists' propaganda machine. The earth is about 4,000 years old and evolution is only a theory, not fact

Also, dude-the majority of Southerners would have to be creationists in order for them to justify the pulling of a film such as this from IMAX theatres

Check out the cool site below to learn how ridiculous evolution really is. Did you ever wonder why the Public schools never teach the evidence against evolution? All you ever here is the evidence for it. That is simply because the evidence against it is overwhelming.

You claim to not want to start another debate, then proceed to throw barbed comments about me being a victim of of evolutionist propaganda? You religious people absolutely crack me up!!

I haven't been this entertained on here since the days of Julian Solos!!

Look, one small podunk town in South Carolina cancelling a movie on evolution does not equate to the entire south believing in creationism. That you think it does explains a great deal about you though, especially since I doubt you've spent much time there.

I may give your link a look, as I do love a good comedy now and then.

Dude.

Out of curiousity, would anyone be opposed to me moving this thread out of the Redline forum? I'd like to see some other site member's views on some of these subjects, and also don't want to see a perfectly good debate closed.

So you are saying creationisim is a fact and evolution is a theory?? Hmmm. Interesting how things like wisdom teeth are slowly fading from the mouths of humans over time (supporting evolution), thousands of creatures are becoming extinct (supporting Darwinism), yet there isn't anything out there that is proof of creationisim. Oh wait, that's because it is faith based, not scientific fact, so it, in effect, is a theory as well.

Oh, and if the world is only 4,000 years old, can you please explain the dinosaurs to me? I'm a little lost.

You're close, but not quite. Evolution is both fact and theory. This may be hard to follow, because just accepting an answer such as creationsim is the easy thing to do, but it is also the lazy thing to do. Easy answers many times aren't the right ones. Evolution is most certainly a fact. There is so much evidence proving it as fact that it is undeniable, save for those who are bigoted against it (thankfuly though, evolution will take care of those people ). The theory part you refer to is the mechanism of evolution. Darwin proposed natural selection as a possible mechanism, but natural selection is admittedly only a theory. Almost anyone who knows anything about evolution knows, and more importantly accepts this.

Here is another mind-bender for you. "Fact" does not mean "absolute certainty." No such thing exists. In science "fact" can only mean confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional consent. Evolutionists don't claim absolute truths, creationists do. It's ironic though that creationists project this trait onto evolutionists (speaking of which, did you look into the projection thing I linked you to in the other thread?).

Ah, that's it for now. Time to go home. Perhaps we'll continue tomorrow.
