Why are theists so wrong about evolution? Dogs came from selective breeding, not evolution.?

    Nowadays certain scientific discoveries and the explanations they give have become like superstitions or foolish beliefs.

    Theists believe in Micro Evolution. The problem is that Micro Evolution and Macro Evolution are often conflated into the single term "Evolution". This is used as a means to make people who disagree with the interpretation of evidences for macro evolution look stupid.

    The truth is that Theists (and creationists in general) believe in Adaptation (aka: Micro Evolution). Selective breeding and differences in people groups as a result of regional groups is strong evidence for this.

    Your pathetic little dog? Hahahaha ha! The hounds of Hell were not bred. They hate you for all the flesh you take up. The hounds of Hell are driven by hunger. Here he is violently hungry and here's you a giant morsel, withdrawn from his supply until now. He hates it first, appreciates it after.

      Of course it's not. So what? The bibles doesn't teach algebra either.

    For example, Darwin?

    Theists are taught that an ethereal existance called god has created all life in a way it wants. They are also taught not to go against this way of thinking, and to not think further than that since "the answer is already here. Believe, don't search". Problem is, that is wrong. That plan was put into motion by the church hundreds of years ago in order to make the common folk obey. Thus could the higher ups control them better through fear of godly judgement. They would set anything that went against them and their despotism as a sin, and more often than not they would try to use the population to steal their money. Theists, at least christians, are taught to believe blindly to a "god" that was created due to a need of earlier humans to explain things they could not yet explain. And now abused still by the churches. Thus, they question everything. Even if back by scientific proof. But science can't be questioned by a "god" without proof of existance. Evolution is a thing. Deal with it.

    Theists are religious. They are wrong because they have been not been told the truth about evolution.

    Evolution is heritable change. It means changes that can be inherited. A tattoo for example is not evolution because it cannot be inherited. Dogs are the result of selective breeding but the changes we see in dogs are heritable. A Dalmatian will pass its spots to the next generation. Therefore dogs did evolve from its wild ancestor the gray wolf, albeit with the help of humans.

      Theists are religious, however, religious doesn’t equate to ignorant. The very first and most passionate scientists were within the Church. In fact, Theology used to be considered the “Queen of the Sciences.”

    Once upon a time a bipedal ape named Homo-erectus came down from the trees and into forests and caves. On the ground, Erectus was competing with other animals for resources to survive. One competitor was the pack-hunting carnivorous Grey Wolf. The fossil record shows the Grey Wolf side-by-side with pre-modern Humans for over 40,000 years.

    Thus the Grey Wolf became the first domesticated animal.

    Archaeological remains reveal dogs and humans sharing the same graves 11,000 years ago. That was at the dawn of agriculture

    This best friend was and still remains on guard day and night to alert the master of intruders. We OBSERVE the modern domestic dog barking at a doorbell or a knock. I tried to train my dogs to not bark at doorbells, couldn't do it.

    Humans were grafted as well

    There is enough known about Darwin's natural selection to know it is based on flawed hypothesis by a man (Darwin) who for most of his adult life was mentally incapacitated due to disease. Darwin himself said, "The impossibility of conceiving that this grand and wondrous universe, with our conscious selves, arose through chance, seems to me the chief argument for the existence of God."

    Darwin's theory on natural selection should read Darwin's Hypothesis on Natural Selection because a theory is based on well substantiated principles which little of Darwin's works can be substantiated. For example:

    1. We can't see the intermediate forms of species, the connecting links

    2. Later Punctuated Equilibrium tried to explain this gap but did not succeed; instant development points toward a creator.

    3. People are taught that the fossil record furnishes proof of evolution. But, where are there fossils of half-evolved dinosaurs or other creatures?

    4. Evolutionist claim that the similarities of genetic and biological make up in species proves their hypothesis but all it proves is there is a Great Designer who designed similar species.

    5. The evidence from genetics supports horizontal evolution (dog, cats, etc. but no vertical evolution (fish to human).

    6. The early grooves in the human embryo are not gills or tails but early stages of the head features and coccyx which has been proven to provide support for certain muscles.

    7. It is known and supported by science that biological variations are nothing more than a combination of previously existing genes.

    8. Even if a mutation were possible for example for a hair it will still be a hair maybe of a different color but still a hair with the same characteristics and traits.

    9. Everything about Evolution is based on faith not substantiated fact.

    10. Science can to some degree explain life and how the universe operates but that does not mean there was no Designer; it is like observing a man made machine do its marvelous work but then question its designer or creator as to their existence.

    Scientists Confirm: Darwinism Is Broken

    By Paul Nelson and David Klinghoffer | December 13, 2016 | 2:37 PM EST

    Darwinian theory is broken and may not be fixable. That was the takeaway from a meeting last month organized by the world's most distinguished and historic scientific organization, which went mostly unreported by the media.

    The three-day conference at the Royal Society in London was remarkable in confirming something that advocates of intelligent design (ID), a controversial scientific alternative to evolution, have said for years. ID proponents point to a chasm that divides how evolution and its evidence are presented to the public, and how scientists themselves discuss it behind closed doors and in technical publications. This chasm has been well hidden from laypeople, yet it was clear to anyone who attended the Royal Society conference, as did a number of ID-friendly scientists.

    Remember what you allow yourself to think, see, hear, say and do literally set into motion Almighty God’s creative powers that form the matrix of life’s reality you find yourself now walking whether good or bad; so knowing this practice each day focusing your whole attention on your movements whether thoughts, sight, sounds, words or deeds, doing that which is good, positive and constructive.

    The Word of God tells us there is life after death and now science is proving it. A British scientist at the forefront of this theory claims that humans have souls, which don't die along with the body. We may not know exactly what consciousness is, but physicist Sir Roger Penrose believes that it's just a packet of information stored at a quantum - or sub-atomic - level. Sensationally, he claims to have found evidence that this information, which is stored in microtubules within human cells, leaves the body after a person dies. Sir Roger has argued that when a person dies temporarily, this quantum information is released into the universe, only to return to the body's cells if the host is brought back to life. He argues that this explains why people can have near-death experiences, and believes that this quantum information amounts to a soul leaving the body. The physics expert said: "If the patient dies, it's possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul."

    "A man can no more diminish God's glory or His Son Jesus by refusing to worship them than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.”

    The Daniel Project was playing on Netflix and can be found on Face book; this documentary will open the eyes of some skeptics concerning the Word of God, prophecies fulfilled and Jesus the Christ of Nazareth, the Messiah.

    If you do not know Jesus the Christ of Nazareth, the Messiah, as your personal savior, yet believe He is Lord, was born of the Virgin Mary, died for your sins, arose from the dead the third day and is now at the right hand of Almighty God, then if so lead say this simple prayer to be saved and have eternal life in the Kingdom of God and not be Judged for sins truly repented.

    Jesus loves you and is calling you.

    “Hear Oh Israel the Lord our God is one Lord and blessed is the Glory of the Lord from His place; Precious Jesus the Christ of Nazareth please forgive me my sins and come into my heart and life forever Amen.”

    If you are sincere in this prayer then know for certain that you are saved and if you need help on your Christian walk contact me through my website below.
