    Someone on this forum said that it isn't between those who accept evolution and those who don't, but rather between those who know what it is and those who don't. That was completely true as I've never met a person who denied evolution and could accurately say in their own words what it meant.

    My only problem with this is that evolution is in fact universally, not almost universally, accepted by those who understand it.

    Unfortunately, it's not necessarily true. There are plenty of people who know exactly what it is but the religious mental poison in their heads keeps them from dealing with actual reality in favor of the religious fantasy that they wish were true.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If you say so. I've NEVER heard a creationist accurately define evolution.

    I have, I've seen some that know what it is, what the evidence is, but they're supremely convinced that all of that was designed by the devil to fool Christians. Their delusion gets in the way of accepting the reality that is before their eyes. Now granted, most of the time you're right, they are ignorant, but there are an unfortunate few who ought to know better but don't.

    Re: Do you reject evolution?

    I believe in science and evolution but I also believe that certain parts of the bible have some historic truth. Which parts are more accurate than others is a guess. It's also a source of many of our concepts of morality, compassion and fairness.

    I do not see the Creation Story as anything but symbolic.

    Very good point... thank you for that as I will use that logic in the future.

    I am a logical thinker, and evolution is logical. So I Don't reject it.

    Yeah, I reject it. I'm not convinced, Gandalf.
