How true!! And that comes from a non-religious person .... though I am often accused of holding religious based ideas, simply because I possess the raw intelligence necessary to look at the intricacies of a Swiss made watch and realize that it couldn't have created itself, or be created by natural processes. Silly me, I think a watch maker made it.

That a living cell, or even that of DNA happens to be infinitely more complex than a watch, doesn't seem to have the tiniest impact on those unevolved brains of the evolutionists. The sad truth is, the very belief in life being created through evolution is evidence of evolution's flawed philosophy, because contrary to the claims .. human beings have never been dumber than they are today, proven by believing such absurd things.

Why do you suppose that the soul doesn't obey energy conservation laws?

I never said that the soul "went anywhere" - only that it is eternal.

The question of where is a religious topic and there is a sub-forum for that.

Lightbulb What's wrong with teaching evolution in public school?

As this thread illustrates, there's no problem with teaching evolution in public schools.

The problem is too many dummies refuse to learn it.

The legitimacy of teaching sciences such as biology (including evolution) has no relation to GregW.

Tell me, is teaching math "indictrination" to you?. How about Geometry or Chemistry?

There is no "doctrine" in evoution, only fact. Therefore teaching evolution can NOT be indoctrination.

I fear three things - the three F's - fire, falling, and failure.

Thus I strive to not ignite, keep my balance in high places, and to always succeed.

The soul isn't "eternal" is is "mythological". Science has discovered atoms, and indeed protons, neutrons and electrons, and, recently, sub-atomic particles, yet with all of our sophisticated sensores, nary of tendril of evidence of sould has ever been uncovered. It if existed, we would "see" evidence of it.

Face mortality and accept it. Doing anything, including "living", forever would be a torment beyond description.

Becuase you do not have non-disputable evidence that shows direct and complete connection to this ancestor. Therefore, it's not fact. Furthermore, evolution fails to explain why humans are the only species to develop complex language, the ability to speak, play music and so on. I find it degrading to teach that I'm nothing more than an animal and you have proven it as fact.

Two of which threaten your mortality, so you really are saying is that you are completely terrorized by your mortality. It is natural, but move beyond it. For the limited nature of life, i.e. is is scarce and finite, is the only thing that gives it value.

Technically gravity is just a theory too.

I don't suppose anything about the soul.

And if you are positing an afterlife, and the soul is the repository of that afterlife, then it's either going somewhere, or it's hanging nebulously, with no purpose, no intention, nothingness. I'm pretty sure that you don't believe you die and your soul is consigned to nothingness.
