Is Darwin's Theory Of Evolution True?


#1090

Yep, our eyes are so badly designed and work so poorly that we may as well not have them at all.


#1091

God Almighty created the entire universe out of NOTHING and you have trouble believing God created Adam from dirt? That does not compute.

btw, “Adam” is Hebrew for “ground”, not “humanoid”.


#1092

So we are led to believe you are more of an authority than the Catechism of the Catholic Church? You know better than the Catholic Church.

Who died (or resigned) and made you Pope?


#1093

Who said I have trouble believing that, I believe it was dirt, but came to be something else in between, before transforming into Adam.


#1094

Speculation, you don’t know the future. What do you have against evolution, seriously?


#1095

Really? So life is not a miracle?


#1096

Oh, apart from the fact that it’s a Satanic hoax and is impossible to reconcile with Scripture, not much. Although I’m not that fond of junk science, either.


#1097

As a Catholic I am duty-bound to oppose the works of the devil.


#1098

Such an obvious error won’t stand the test of time. The Holy Spirit will be correct it eventually.


#1099

The Church teaches that the faithful can believe in a literal “six days” interpretation of Genesis, thereby completely rejecting evolution. I would call that being allowed to be “dogmatic against evolution.”


#1100

The Catechism is misleading. It stresses a figurative interpretation and fails to mention that a literal interpretation is okay too.


#1101

This is how it works: If Adam and Eve were figurative (as the evolutionists would have us believe), then Original Sin might have been figurative too. This undermines the need for a Saviour. Knock out the foundations of a doctrine and it will all come tumbling down.


#1102

In other words, anything in the Bible can be interpreted figuratively to suit the evolution paradigm. The Church teaches that Eve was created immediately from Adam’s rib.


#1103

That means nothing. Ever heard of the Arian heresy? About 90% of bishops didn’t believe Jesus was God. Don’t blame me if most bishops today have fallen victim to a Satanic hoax. Follow the brainwashed herd it you like; I won’t.

The Church comes up with a similar time span since the creation of Adam. In fact, if memory serves, according to a post on the previous thread, the time span from Adam to Christ is mentioned as part of a Christmas prayer.


#1104

Would the Catechism and it’s error of fitting an evolutionist perspective be the work of the devil then?


#1105

Where exactly is the word “immediately” anywhere in that teaching?


#1106

Some may very well call Adam and Eve were figurative, but that is not my position.


#1107

Which document supports a 24 hour day for those six days?


#1108

Literal means just as the author intended, but the more important question is what did the author intend?


#1109

How is it obvious that it is an error, you haven’t demonstrated that evolution is incompatible with the faith. Not even the Church teaches that.
