Curious for those of you who say you don't believe in Evolution...

Why exactly? Because of the stigma as applied to it by religious circles or because you have reviewed the theories and concepts in detail and disagree with them on the academic level? What exactly do you disagree with with regard to evolution? Do you think that it is true that species change/adapt over time?

hey cajun, do you think strict religions might have slowed down the human ability to gain greater capacities for learning (or gain better use of what is already there)? For example, religions that do not let women speak, have a job, or even an education. Or religions that exlpain mysterious past events with long drawn out stories instead of researching and finding provable facts for explanations. Kinda like passing on ignorance through the generations instead of passing on openness towards free thinkers, people that ask questions, and people that strive to find answers.

I thought i'd see what you thought. In my opinion i think religion has and still does slow the evolution of our thinking. At least in places where religion rules over everything.

I know this wasn't addressed to me, but what do you mean by "strict" religions? Religions that don't allow room to BS to fit into modern times? Even the "religions" that aren't 'strict' are still going to explain things with their own supernatural reasoning. Like creationism.

That's what I meant. A baby from 9000 years ago, IMO, would be able to learn what we know, if educated in a modern way.


I went to an exhibit at a museum when I was a kid. It was called "7000 years of Iranian Art".
They had artifacts on display that were easily as sophisticated as anything from 14th century Europe.
And don't forget some of the stuff the ancient Chinese had waay before the europeans did.

well one great thing about human kind is the ability to adapt to any condition

i dont think the species were less of more smarter than today, is just the lack of proper knowledge at the time made them evolve slower in our opinion, but. at the same time, they did prove to be smarter many times with key discoveries

and how to improve their way of life , and to get better understanding on how to live in society
now in the other hand yeah, we all have our defects

even in our era sometimes i doubt about the intelligence of the human race tho

well in my opinion i think every religion slows the learning process to an extent. Some more than others.
