    Darwin was also good at making sense of what he observed. You are not.

    ACTUALLY... Darwin was good at observing but lousy at making sound conclusions. Would you like examples?
    Without Genesis, absolutely nothing makes sense in all of Scripture.

    Wait.....so you're saying the very first guy to seriously study evolution didn't get EVERYTHING right?

    That's amazing!!!


    But also.....didn't the Christian religion first say that Earth was at the center of the universe? A conclusion made by observing the sky and the celestial bodies. If the religion was wrong early on in its history, then it must be a useless source of information now like Darwin is, right?

    Sure I do. It calls for honesty among other things. It calls for caring for other people. Both of those seem sorely lacking with many Christians here.

    I've decided that the christians here aren't actually as nasty as some of them appear to be. We're on the internet. Just like in cases of road rage, anonymity breeds bolder, more combative action. Most of the christians on this site are likely good people, even Nick. The internet makes you do and say things that you would never utter in a face-to-face interaction. Not out of fear, but respect. That respect is lost online. See: twitter

    So Galileo wasn't imprisoned at home by the Church in 1633 until his death because he said the Earth revolves around the Sun?

    You can't be this dishonest, can you? EVERYBODY knows that!

    Refute this: http://newsroom.ucla.edu/releases/th...atholic-church

    Interesting but not really related, this article says that Galileo actually endorsed geocentrism AFTER he endorsed heliocentrism. Apparently he found his own evidence lacking

    It wasn't just 'evolution' that Darwin was wrong about... (And he certainly wasn't the first to believe in common ancestry). Darwin was wrong about science in general. He was wrong about geology... about God...fossils...the tree of life... natural selection... the nature of life... extinction of anthropomorphous apes (Negroes? pygmies?) etc.

    No... the Christian religion did not say that although some Christians said that, as did some atheists and some vegetarians. It was also some Christians who helped found modern astronomy

    Other than the black guys and pygmies, scientists today agree with him and not you on the above. Think about that next time you posit a certainty.

    Christianity helped fund much scientific progress, but to deny that the Catholic Inquisition sentenced Galileo to house arrest for life in 1633 over past Heliocentric claims is either ignorant or dishonest.

    I'm not wasting my time if you're not going to be honest 6

    So... we agree them. Darwin was good at observation but made many lousy conclusions.... and on many topics.(funny how evolutionists brush off, and whitewash Darwin's racist statements, rather than just admit he was wrong... All humanity is 'one blood')

    That an egotistical Pope 'sentenced Galileo to house arrest' is your attempt at moving the goalposts. What I said, and is correct,was "some Christians who helped found modern astronomy."

    Except for those dozens of other human species. But don't let details get in the way.
    And no I'm afraid we agree very little here

    Hard to move the goalposts to the Church when they started there. The Pope, whether you like it or not, was the spokesman for God and nearly all of Christianity in 1633. The pope is Christian.

    You wouldn't let muslims say that ISIS aren't real muslims, so you don't get to sweep the pope under the rug either
