    Evolution: 24 myths and misconceptions


    Though I do believe Darwin was a Racist, and he had a lot of things wrong. I thought some of you might like to read this stuff that passes for science. These people don’t even see the bias in the questions they ask, let alone the answers they seek.

    Shared misconceptions:
    Everything is an adaptation produced by natural selection
    Natural selection is the only means of evolution
    Natural selection leads to ever-greater complexity
    Evolution produces creatures perfectly adapted to their environment
    Evolution always promotes the survival of species
    It doesn't matter if people do not understand evolution
    "Survival of the fittest" justifies "everyone for themselves"
    Evolution is limitlessly creative
    Evolution cannot explain traits such as homosexuality
    Creationism provides a coherent alternative to evolution

    Your thoughts on evolution, please:thinking:

    Now this is why getting into a debate over "how things came about" is always going to be your personal opinion. First because each angle has a word to specify it(evolution,big bang,Osirus and Isis,Creator). Therefore, as we search the meaning through sources we get :their: point of view.
    Evolution is about change(stages) so that makes the logical mind add differentiation. So anything can lead you to multi perspectives but it's up to us to understand what this means to us. Not to others cause we can not understand the passion another has in their heart. Nor judge them for the sake of our minds being tricked to think how they thinking is wrong and you right.

    I don't disagree with you. Darwin's theory of Evolution is an opinion. It's true that it has been forced on us all, to the point that many do not challenge it. other then perhaps the churches.

    But it has become the fall back for racism.

    I don't see a correct or wrong answer to our evolving, because they all fall under theories.
    For me, it's the assumptions made by this theory that has great consequence for our people.

    Your right when we can't get beyond (evolve) what our "forfathers" taught us to believe and how we should live our lives because that is what their opinion or etiquite was .. What are we scared of? That (sarcastically speaking)we have our truth and scared to use it.
