according to the dictionary, evolution is a religion. But I’m not get into a religious discussion. Religion is a matter of preference, and truths are different for different people. That’s it. THE END.
#curtsy# thank you josh dushane/col dax/cinema is ALIVE
WHAT DICTIONARY?!!!! YOU LIE QUENTIN, YOUUUU LIIIIIIIIIEEE.
evolution |ˌevəˈloō sh ən|
1 the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth.
ORIGIN early 17th cent.: from Latin evolutio(n-) ‘unrolling,’ from the verb evolvere (see evolve ). Early senses related to physical movement, first recorded in describing a tactical “wheeling” maneuver in the realignment of troops or ships. Current senses stem from a notion of “opening out” and “unfolding,” giving rise to a general sense of [development.]
THATS WHAT MY DICTIONARY SAYS, SHOW ME / LINK ME YOURS
and if you didnt want a discussion you shouldntve started a thread and you shouldntve have labeled your religion in the first post.
That’s true. I feel dumb for that. But…too late. I was talking about the definition of religion. Go back and look it up.
Oh and puff, even if we don’t agree on religion, that explanation of why death is funny was the best fucking post in this thread.
ahem, actually, no, you werent, you said “according to the dictionary, evolution is a religion.” but just as a matter of fun fact, since you’re changing yer story now, here is the def. of religion:
the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods
EVOLUTION IS NOT A RELIGION, IT IS A SERIES OF OBSERVATIONS, NOT A BELIEF SYSTEM AT ALL
id like to state here that i am not anti-religion in any way shape or form and have many religious friends and have gone to church with them/their familes and have gone to buddhist monastaries before too to meditate and i find spirituality very fascinating and comforting indeed. my fatty beef is with calling evolution a religion AND trying to slander evolution because i hate hate hate hate hate when people try to mess with science. cuz science is my homeboi and without science we aint shit. [case-in-point: without science the computer youre on wouldnt exist BAM]
now, mr. quentin, since you admit you dont want to have a religious discussion, and also that evolution is not a religion, would you care to reiterate your thoughts on evolution, per say? :) xoxoxo
#curtsy# thank you quentin, im glad we agree on something and sorry for the attack, but you not only touched a nerve, you stomped on it. evolution is beautiful. and i do mean beeeaaauuutttttiiiiifffffffuuuulllllllllllllll. without evolution flowers would suck. [or maybe they’d be ginormous still!!! thatd be fun]
We have different dictionaries Puff. Mine says ‘details of belief as taught or discussed’
To me that means, you believe in evolution (Even if it is fact), also it is taught in schools. Therefore, Evolution=Religion.
I don’t even think evolution is wrong, but I think it’s a religion.
Oh, and I’m sorry I confused you with the definitions, that was my fault.
P.S. Dead baby jokes are my favorite too.
Also, the purpose of my thread was not to get into a big religious discussion, but looking back, i guess i asked for it.
also, this may seem totally random but this thread may me think of it…. i always loved the ‘name’ marilyn manson [not his music, rly] because i once heard him in an interveiw say that his stage name was a send up of the media’s fascination with death. and i thought that was rly cool and appropraite for this thread. k. goodnight. probably.
Goodnight-I had a good argument. Thank ya.
alright, i wanted to go to bed, but i gotta dispute this lil bit….
“Mine says ‘details of belief as taught or discussed’
To me that means, you believe in evolution (Even if it is fact)"
you kinda sorta definately contradicted yourself, q. a belief is the opposite of a fact. because evolution is a collection of well-observed facts, like i said earlier, its not matter of ‘belief’ or tolerance at all, its just a matter of acceptance. evolution is true and its everywhere. accept it or deny it. those are the only options. belief doesnt even enter into it.
k. time to read and bed. i <3 science. eeeeee!
are we talking micro of macro evolution? macro we see everyday, micro (by definition) we do not.
So… You don’t believe in evolution? What?
I’m super confused now!
But if your going to bed I guess I’ll never be enlightened…DAMN IT!
Puff- sometimes seeing death & smelling death & seeing the pain of death in someone else’s eyes leaves no recourse but to laugh about death.
quentin. i accept that evolution is true. belief has nothing to do with it. ;) nice try tho.
and, yeh,deckard, i meant both macro and micro, we all see macro, but theres some dozen-odd scienctists who see micro everyday too!
Belief-An acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists.
Why the fucking hell are you trying to pretend like you are always right? I’ve been honest with you so far, admitting when I’m wrong… why won’t you!!!!!?
…whoa. freak out much? again we have a dictionary dispute, mine says…
1 trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something
…and im not pretending anything. actually, belief is just a matter of pretending hard enough :)
Sorry for the outburst
its ok quentin. im sorry too. [neh! youre my auteurs boo!!]
Quentin-I think a part of being a person of faith is not being afraid of death. You kinda catch me as a button pusher or an instigator like a kid poking a carcass to see what kind of bugs come scurrying out. I also find death funny when others don’t but it HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MY FAITH.
ya know what? I say we can both believe whatever the hell we want to. That way we can go to bed. Sound good?
Darky-Yeah, I don’t know whether it has to do with mine or not, I was just trying to think of reasons. And look where it got me.
I’m not going to bed with you Quentin. And I wasn’t trying to be an ass.
I wasn’t talking about you, I was talking to puff. And not about fucking eachother either. She said she wanted to go to bed. I meant seperate beds. good gag though.
I work at a funeral home surrounded by bodies. It’s a little funny.
Only a little?
I laughed my whole time watching The French Connection. Every time Heckman put a cap on someone’s ass, I laughed.
