Creationism Vs. Evolution: The Argument for Creationism

The question of whether life was intelligently designed or evolved over billions of years has been a major point of contention since Darwin’s On The Origin Of Species was first published in the mid-19th century. Here are the strongest arguments from the creationist side of this ongoing and heated debate:

CREATIONISM

*Evolutionary theory rests on precepts set out by old, obsolete book written over a hundred years ago
*Scientifically corroborated by numerous peer-reviewed Facebook posts
*Banana flawlessly designed for use as fake phone
*Bible verses about molecular mutation and generational metamorphosis in allele frequencies clearly allegorical
*Nine electoral votes in Alabama
*Results of natural selection experiments have only been reproduced a few thousand times in a laboratory
*Archaeopteryx way too awesome to have evolved into shitty birds of today
*Far easier to understand than evolution

Koko the gorilla, is a female gorilla who is able to understand more than 1000 signs on the the American Sign Language system and over 2000 words of spoken English. 
Koko had a pet kitten, which she received on her birthday on July 1984. It was noted that Koko cared for that kitten as if it were a little baby gorilla. The kitten one day escaped from Koko’s cage and was hit by a car.
When she was told of what happened, this is how she responded.
It was also noted that afterwards she made weeping sounds like a human.

And for anyone whose interested in animal language, here’s an interesting article on researchers translating chimp language

What happens after death? Even if it is nothing, could you explain this nothingness? If not, then why does religion seem so absurd for giving answers to these difficult questions?

Death is hard concept to grasp and an uncomfortable idea for most people, that is why we have all these notions about what happens after you die. I don’t think about it.

The “afterlife we should be worried about is the future we leave our children.”

I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.”
-Mark Twain

"so what do you think being dead feels like?" You know what it felt like for the billions of years before you were born? Exactly like that.
-Ricky Gervais

“Ever wonder what happens after you die?” Actually, lots of things happen. Just none of them include you.”
-Louis C.K.

"The past six months have been the hottest such stretch on Earth since recording began in 1880."

sagansense:

We were hunters and foragers. The frontier was everywhere. We were bounded only by the Earth, and the ocean, and the sky. The open road still softly calls. Our little terraquious globe as the madhouse of those hundred thousand millions of worlds. We, who cannot even put our own planetary home in order, riven with rivalries and hatreds; Are we to venture out into space?

By the time we’re ready to settle even the nearest of other planetary systems, we will have changed. The simple passage of so many generations will have changed us. Necessity will have changed us. We’re… an adaptable species. It will not be we who reach Alpha Centauri and the other nearby stars. It will be a species very like us, but with more of our strengths, and fewer of our weaknesses. More confident, farseeing, capable, and prudent. For all our failings, despite our limitations and fallibilities, we humans are capable of greatness.

What new wonders, undreamed of in our time, will we have wrought in another generation? And another? How far will our nomadic species have wandered by the end of the next century? And the next millennium?

Our remote descendants, safely arrayed on many worlds through the solar system and beyond, will be unified by their common heritage, by their regard for their home planet, and by the knowledge that whatever other life there may be, the only humans in all the universe come from Earth. They will gaze up, and strain to find the blue dot in their skies. They will marvel at how vulnerable the repository of raw potential once was. How perilous, our infancy. How humble, our beginnings. How many rivers we had to cross before we found our way.

Carl Sagan; “Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space”
