"Theories" are actually equivalent to a hypothesis which as a 						****					 ton of evidence. Gravity is a theory. There's the cell theory and of course the evolutionary theory. Though the evolutionary theory may be true it doesn't disprove god. Of course you can't prove that god exists either.    
   
This is why the whole issue comes down to "faith." You can choose to have faith or not. As long as people who have faith don't try to force others to believe that they're right, then we can live harmoniously. The same applies to people who don't have faith. We shouldn't be trying to convince anybody of anything. Let people believe what they want.

I absolutely agree with most of what you said, but I have to point out that gravity is considered a principle, since it can and has been proven. Theories, by definition, have enough evidence to be considered true, but can't technically be proven.

While it is true you can't disprove god, if he did exist, you could certainly prove it. If he came down from heaven and proved his power I'm pretty sure that would prove his existence.

This is where the imaginary flying tea kettle and the flying spaghetti monster come from. Also sometimes called "god of the gaps", it boils down to a metaphysical argument for an extraunviersal being is irrelevant because we don't know anything near that and anything said on the topic is just belief and here say.

.........did you seriously just say hypotheses and theories are the same?
#149 to #148 - tacblack (01/26/2013) [-]
No I didn't. I said theories are hypothesis with a massive amount of evidence. Which is true.
#152 to #149 - anonymous (01/26/2013) [-]
A hypothesis is a presupposed truth which is to be determined to be true. A theory is a truth that is the summation of given evidence. They aren't both explanations. Gravity is a summation of the laws of gravitation, evolution is a summation of genetic variation. A hypothesis would be that if I dropped a ball, it would fall. I would test it and find it to be an accurate assumption and incorporate that into a theory.

Basically my point is that a theory has a ton of evidence behind it. Contrary to the belief that theories are basically not true or still in the works.
#157 to #155 - anonymous (01/26/2013) [-]
Well that's just the thing, though. Theories aren't supported by evidence, they are the evidence, or the real world expressions thereof to be precise.

But its not as simple as saying let people believe what they want when told blatant lies (like creationism) because it was said by people thousands of years ago who didn't now what they were talking about. Believing in God is one thing because like you said it cant be disproved but things which have been and can be disproved shouldn't be taught as fact.
#380 to #147 - wadethegreat (01/27/2013) [-]
why do you say that creationism is a blatant lie man? i personaly believe in god and evolution.. both make sense to me and both are accepted by me. and if you all are thinking that man am i a ******* retard just think... god might have just created the universe and watched us grow from single celled organisms to what we are today along with helping us along the evolutionary way and if you think about it and read the bible at the beggining you will remember that god had created heaven and earth in 7 days but he waited for everything to evolve to what it is!

Creationism is a blatant lie because its the polar opposite to evolution, evolution has a overwhelming amount of evidence where as creationism doesn't have any. Also the bible doesn't state that God waited for us to evolve, it just says he created us, since the bible is supposed to be the word of God written by man why would God leave out such an important thing? Wouldn't an all powerful all knowing creature know that we would disprove his words?
#393 to #389 - wadethegreat (01/27/2013) [-]
oh but i should mention that the bible dosnt state any evidence of evolution because god did not describe how he made us but who are we to say what god did or did not do, because we will never no till we die and we sure cant some back after we learn what did happend

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Unless God is a singled cell organism (that in which we started off as) the bible has a little lie right there.

im not saying god was or is a single celled organism and god is problably devoid of gender but all i was stating was my opinion like it or not its there but i dont really want to argue
User avatar #408 to #400 - Faz (01/27/2013) [-]
Oh no sorry i wasn't trying to argue, its just you said it didn't describe how God created us but it actually does. In my opinion though the likely hood of a God isn't that far fetched, its something which may be a possibility but again just in my opinion no current world religion has got it right, they all have aspects which have been disproved and a God creature being all knowing and all powerful wouldn't get anything wrong.

If these are lies are falsified then I do agree. There's no point in teaching blatant lies.

LOL NO ATHEISM IZ BEST EVOLUTION IS KING CUZ I IS SMART NOW FROM MONKEY YESTERDAY
#150 to #145 - anonymous (01/26/2013) [-]
Atheism does not entail evolution, though it is the best argument available if you won't subscribe to creation.
