And another thing.......

I have just been having an on line discussion with a "born again" Christian - about Evolution. As you would expect, it was a meeting of two opposites, not just opposites, but billions of light-years apart and ne'er the twain will meet.

One of the "proofs" these people espouse for the existence of God is the sheer complexity of the fabric of life. I agree it is extremely impressive and at first sight looks to have been created rather than "evolved".

Answer - read up on chaos theory. Complexity and organisation is a perfectly natural result of the laws of nature. Its not rocket science. And there's the rub. Religionists take these matters and try to pretend they are rocket science in order to prove the existence of their own non-existent god. They also do not understand science. They do not try to understand science. They are blinded by ignorance. To them, ignorance of science is a virtue. Very sad.
