    Agreed. As Christian sects go, Catholocism hasn't been the most backwards one for a pretty long time now.

    I've found as I have gone through various other Christian religions (currently attending a Bible Church with my wife) that the Catholic Church is, whether fellow Christians like it or not, the anchor of the Christian faith. I haven't found a Christian faith yet that doesn't define itself by its divergence from Catholic doctrine.

    That very debate comes up alot in the philosophy section.
    You can type that all day, but the existence or lack of existence of God or any other belief as to how the universe was created is a matter of faith. Ive been to the philosophy section and the majority of the posts there are just ignorance on display for the other posters.

    Once again, atheists fail to acknowledge that the vast majority of Christians accept science in all its forms as nothing more than further example of God's amazing work.

    The wonderment of science reaffirms faith. It doesn't contradict it.

    LOL, wow.

    You're way of thinking has been around for about as long as spit in a bucket. Liberals always seem to think history began the day they were born.

    So yes, the Catholic church has been around for a rather long time. Good point. LOL

    Yet one third of Americans don't think the Theory of Evolution is true - some of that number are participants in this forum. They say their "faith" tells them so.

    I know what you mean. When I figured out how a combustion engine works I immediately realized that Henry Ford never existed.

    Again, a stilted BS claim from atheists.

    There are numerous holes in the Theory of Evolution. Whatever the truth is, that isn't it either. It explains almost nothing; it has the depth of a 5th-grade essay.

    No, your rebuttal against Evolution has the depth of a Crayon drawing in Kindergarten.

    Evolution is fact.

    Period.

    It does not attempt to explain the origins of life, but it explains how life came to be as it is today.
