    It stopped being a theory years ago. Anyone who thinks otherwise is bad at science.
    It's been proven again and again yet bible thumpers refuse to open their eyes

    Creationism
    bible

    As a Christian, I believe evolution explains the how but not the why.

    It scares me how many answered 'no'...

    The religious need to keep their damn fairy tales out of our science classrooms. Evolution has an enormous amount of irrefutable scientific evidence to back it up. The ancient myth of creationism is absurd. What is even more absurd, though, is that people continue to hold ignorant belief in the 21st century..

    And what would you replace it with? Ancient fairy tales written by desert primitives. Evolution is the core basis for practically all of biology, and we use it everyday in things like vaccines, etc.

    But CLEARLY you know more than the scientists.

    Things did not just "appear" out of nowhere. No we did not come from monkeys. God created the heavens and the earth. Look around you he left his fingerprints everywhere-animals, flowers, people, the sky. Would a tree really plant itself? Think of it this way...do things just appear in front of you? You think about it and BAM you have your decorations up. BAM you have food on the table? Did you automatically know how to drive/parallel park? You had to learn things or do them. They did not just happen. I rest my case. I don't have to see him to believe what I believe. By the way...yes I am bad at science. Do I care....no. I'm more into history.

    No one ever said we came from monkeys. We came from a common ancestor that branched off into humans and other primates.

    Trees come from seeds which are transported in many ways: wind, water, animals.

    I can shuffle a deck of 52 cards and flip them over one by one. The permutation I got is extremely unlikely given the other possible permutations, but that just happened.

    Furthermore what if it were pagan gods that created the heavens and earth? There's no evidence suggesting the contrary.

    Do I care....no.
    Then please refrain from making opinions that decide our future generation's lives.

    Members of the religious right often say we came from monkeys. That's because they do not, and will not, understand evolution.

    How is it so hard to understand a concept that a community's individuals will eventually change and adapt to an ever-changing environment?

    First off, abiogenesis is a whole different animal from evolution; yes, the former precedes the latter, but that's as far as it goes.

    Second, you should learn the problem of precision, especially when it comes to measuring quantities; there's bound to be a degree of error, so your measured 4 billion years may turn out to be actually 4.1 billion or 3.95 billion. It depends on how precise your instrument is.

    No one will ever know how it precisely happened; one can only formulate theories for abiogenesis and with new evidence being uncovered the theories will change. That's the wonderful thing about science.

    Look up 'scientific theory' on Wikipedia.

    It's a theory that has a lot of evidence to support it. I've no doubt it'll be revised in the future, but it'll add to our understanding of how nature works.

    What history books are you referring to?

    Evolution itself is a fact. The Theory of Evolution is the framework of knowledge that we use to explain the fact that populations of organisms change over time due to selective pressure.
