    That is the problem....believe.
    Believe whatever you want.

    However, evolution is fact.

    Would you think he's a moron if he posted on Twitter that Bush was behind 9/11 so he could invade Iraq to avenge his father and that the Iranians were in on the plan because they also hated Saddam?

    There is too much scientific evidence to deny that the earth is billions of years old and the universe vastly older than that.
    There is actually an explanation to this that allows YEC to function.

    The problem is that it creates a gigantic theological problem with the nature of God's perfection and trustworthiness to the point where nothing about God can be believed. That's a far bigger problem for YECs than the issue of scientific evidence as it effectively destroys the entire basis for their religion.

    They can be ignorant, crazy or foolishly closed-minded also.

Not every detail along the path of evolution is known, but the notion that humans evolved into their present species (and are still evolving today with certain genes under selection) is overwhelmingly supported by scientific evidence. It is also improbable that humans would have been the single static life form that never evolved (refuted by the reality that they continue to evolve based on genes under selection).

    Enough with the victim complex, seriously. He said nothing of the sort.

    Either start discussing what people actually say or just go outside and shout at the wind, because that's what you're doing in this thread. You're having some other conversation nobody else here is part of.

    Anyone who believes in Literal Young Earth Creationism is also not a Christian as YEC eliminates the possibility of a Perfect God as it produced theological contradictions in what God says and does.
    Anyone who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He died for our sins and that we are saved through our faith/belief in Him is a Christian.

    It's funny how the people most hostile and enraged by religion seem to think they're the authority on what someone's "true beliefs" should be.
