Quote from: Hisgirl on November 21, 2010, 10:05:34 pmRobert,You write so eloquently and with such intellect, that half of what you say and ask just cruises right over my head. However, I think I do understand what you're asking. It has to do with how to balance scientific fact/research/discoveries with what the bible says or what the 'church' teaches as fact...is that true?For me, I honestly don't even delve into those things. My friend is going through a divorce, my other friend doesn't have enough money to make the bills and this other friend appears to be dying of cancer. Who can worry about the scientists? Can anyone ever come to a definitive conclusion apart from faith? I mean seriously....if all the scientists in the world told you they could 'prove' 100% that you evolved from a speck of algae...would you believe it?

Quote from: Pete on November 22, 2010, 08:32:48 amAs I read this thread last night, I could not think of the name of that movie for the life of me!It's a very good movie that explains how in the scientific community, simply exploring if there is some truth to creationism will result in you being an outcast and shunned. IOW, the scientific community completely rejects creationism, or rather what the documentary refers to as "intelligent design", and you're not even allowed to ask questions about it (which is odd, since that's what science is all about). But OTOH, Darwinism is simply accepted as the base truth, even though there are gaping holes and a myriad of questions surrounding it that remain unanswered.It's a very interesting documentary, because you see these well-respected scientists dare to question Darwinism, and the science community just turns on them. Essentially, creationism has been "Expelled" from the scientific community for no logical, sound, scientific reason, and Ben Stein's documentary does an excellent job of illustrating that.For those of you in the US with Netflix, it's one of the movies you can "Watch Instantly", and I highly recommend it.
