Creationism is not having all the answers, so you make up an answer that fits all those gaps. It's absurd.
Evolution is just a theory. It's just the popular opinion for how we think it works. Does that mean that's how things actually work? I don't think we'll ever know. Evolution has as much "credence" as creationist thought because neither can ever be proven wrong. As humans, all we can ever do is try and figure out how the world works. It's a fun mental exercise, but there are so many factors that we don't know even exist yet, who knows what we think we'll discover down the line, that I'm not comfortable accepting anything as a 100% fact.

Also, I'd say the poll is skewed to who is more likely to answer polls, idiots.

Quite frankly this is going to turn out the same way all the other religion threads turn out. We just had this conversation.

LOL at people who think we evolved from monkeys though. Fuck outta here.
