I find it odd that many religious people are still anti-evolution Gavroche - 11/04/2004 06:08:32 PM

Considering that the Pope himself in the 80's/90's (whichever), met with many theoretical physicists during a conference. He OK'd what they said about the universe and its age, and everything, the only thing he said was that they couldn't delve into was the Big Bang since it was the moment of creation.

Since the Pope himself has acknowledged the Big Bang as occuring, and evolution, why do many people persist in ignoring that?

For one thing, while most Christians respect him, not all are Catholic - 11/04/2004 06:24:41 PM 62 Views
of course, that can be referred to my post lower on the board - 11/04/2004 07:03:31 PM 26 Views
As to Catholics - 11/04/2004 07:56:18 PM 23 Views
Shouldn't it be the other way around? - 11/04/2004 08:37:27 PM 36 Views

People that don't are mostly literal-believers. - 11/04/2004 07:37:35 PM 24 Views
I feel that too many people are becoming Arian-type Christians. - 13/04/2004 11:16:48 AM 10 Views

I agree. Evolution may be the method reason understands... - 13/04/2004 12:01:24 PM 8 Views
people prefer mysticism and faith to fact and science - 11/04/2004 10:41:41 PM 32 Views
Thought I was gonna have to disagree with you. - 12/04/2004 01:27:16 AM 30 Views
A snide response. - 12/04/2004 09:13:12 PM 14 Views
But there IS evidence. Just not published in Science journals. - 13/04/2004 05:12:40 AM 14 Views
Geez. - 13/04/2004 08:00:07 AM 18 Views
The point of faith is that you don't need scientific proof. - 13/04/2004 11:39:14 AM 11 Views
You do realize - 13/04/2004 03:49:06 PM 13 Views
Science is based on sensible assumptions... - 13/04/2004 11:49:54 AM 12 Views
Yeah, *sensible assumptions*, - 13/04/2004 03:13:43 PM 11 Views
But not proven - 13/04/2004 03:15:50 PM 10 Views
Huh? - 13/04/2004 03:54:38 PM 12 Views

Furthermore, the age of the world is a separate issue from evolution. *NM* - 12/04/2004 12:08:34 AM 9 Views
Not entirely. If a Christian found a way to prove the Earth was young - 12/04/2004 01:36:12 AM 23 Views
Yeah, but they're still two separate issues. - 12/04/2004 02:12:50 AM 17 Views
They are linked, and one requires the other. - 13/04/2004 11:43:43 AM 12 Views
No. No, not really. - 13/04/2004 03:51:51 PM 7 Views
