I believe that in general the human race is getting smarter with each generation.
I'd say thats not the case. We are merely building on previous knowledge with each generation. There have been many geniuses in the past and there are still numerous idiots today. I don't think there are more of either group...although if I had to guess, I'd say more idiots.

I didn't respond to your other post, but you did it again here. You're applying a biblical point of view to everything. Why?

I think the bible does explain quite alot, it just does it in simple easy to understand terms.
And I'd say it does so in simple easy to understand terms because thats the only way the people of the time could make sense of the world.

Science and faith. It's all based on belief.
You mean one doesn't require faith and the other is faith. Now yes, some have faith in some or all areas of science, but it it isn't mandatory. But to believe that there is or isn't a god, something which can't be proven either way, one must have faith. Of course the supreme being is just one area where many folks have faith, but there are so many others which are scientific and otherwise.

because I am a christian and my experience with science only seems to bolster that belief.

Re: evolutionary science

I'm a Christian too... and it's difficult to not allow my faith to influence my thoughts on evolution. I imagine it's probably the same for an atheist... it would be difficult to not allow evolution to influence their thoughts on Christianity.

Re: evolutionary science

Contrary to what most religious people probably think, relatively few scientists are atheists. Many are religious to some degree, many are agnostic.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Re: evolutionary science

Actually, like I said, many do express belief in a higher power. About 40% in most studies. Many more are agnostic, not assuming that God exists or not. Look at the greatest scientists in history and you will find that a higher number than currently believed in God or were religious in some way.

Re: evolutionary science

That doesn't surprise me really, but I was being more specific to atheists, those who don't believe in God at all... are not religious at all other than about being an atheist. I'm thinking they are solely evolutionist.

A scientist may or may not be an atheist or may have some religious beliefs.

To further that thought... being religious and believing in God does not necessarily mean that person will believe the Bible is infallible, incorruptible and totally inspired by God.

Re: evolutionary science

Would evolutionary science include discussion about the Big Bang Theory?

Would physics include discussion about the Big Bang Theory?

Yep Sonnie. The problem when discussing an issue like this is the multitude of definitions for these different terms.

Some are fundamentalists. Some are deists. Some believe that there is certainly no god (what is commonly referred to as an Athiest) while others don't there is enough evidence to support the existence or non-existence of a supreme being.

And even when I was looking into creationism...there are multiple forms of creationism!
