There is solid, pure, logical evidence that evolution is true, and even if there wasn't it'd still be logical to think that organisms slowly change and adapt over time, where as creation is in a book that a bunch of old saints and disciples wrote a couple thousand years ago.
Creation is just purely illogical and childish. There has always been a creator, he has existed for eternity, and he just made everything on the planet as you see it today. Evolution is logical, and sais that through chance, life slowly started and change and adapted to it's environment over millions of years, the things that lived in water became water creatures, the things that lived on land became land creatures.
To be 100% honest, you have to be just a tad bit dumb to believe in creationism. Just a tad bit.
Ya know, not to mention when I was working one of my temp jobs, one of the temps I was talking to, I found out he is both a Vegan, and a creationist Christan. I was absolutely dumbfounded by his idiocy. We got to talking about religion and other things.
His logic was that god "created the world in 7 days" and that "our solar system is special" ....
Like I even was trying to be nice and level with him. I offered him idea and possibilities such as.
"We are never really told how long a "day" for god is. 7 "days" could very well be 7 billion years to us, but supposedly there is a passage in one of those many old books saying that a day for god is the same as a day or man. So there goes that I guess. :/
We also talked about stars, and how apparently our sun is special, it was "just created" He insisted that the earth was created -before- the sun, and the sun was just put there to sustain our life. So god created everything, our planet, the plants, us, and all the things dependent on heat, the POOF, our sun was there, right where it needed to be. What about other stars? Were they just poofed into random spaces?
Those stars aren't special according to him, they formed like normal stars, not to mention we are the only thing that has life on it, or so he insisted.
It was really frustrating. He more or less refuses to look at anything scientific, and any sort of hybrid, or compromise like a guided evolution, which I could see as a valid potential is utter garbage in his eyes. Was the first hardcore Vegan I'd ever met, and compounded by the fact he was a creationism just multiplied the stupid 10 fold.
To say that we are the only life in our vast universe is not only ignorant, it's also extremely arrogant. We are not "special" we are just a little bit more organized than some other life, and even then we look like a chaotic bunch of fuckwits when you compare us to organizations like ants and shit.
