What side of the family are you from?

A  little girl asked her mother, 'How did the human race  appear?' 

The mother answered, 'God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so all mankind was made.' Two days later the girl asked her father the same question. 

The  father answered, 'Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.' 

 

The confused girl returned to her  mother and said, 'Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said it developed from  monkeys?' 

The mother answered, 'Well, dear, it is very  simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his.'

I mean, I don't believe in God, but I would so much rather prefer to be a descendant of God than a descendant of monkeys... destined to die and rot in the ground.

The real question is where did the apes come from? and before them the bacteria? and before them the proper amino acids and intelligence to combine them to create cells?

Amino acids were created in the primordial soup or a similar process. This is how all life as we know it began, scientists have already discovered amino acids in fragments of rock from asteroids, all other life evolved from this. As for the intelligence bit, why do they need intelligence to evolve, why? Have you ever read the Blind Watch Maker or do you not take anything a athiest says seriously.

Side: The Monkeys'

God created the asteroids and the amino acids and then he put them in fragments of rock from asteroids. God then created humans through a process we call evolution. ;)

Exactly, nothing exists before the Creator. Also those amino acids couldn't develop the complexity of the human genome without God.

Why not. I think your idea of God is very different to what actually exists im afraid.The metaphrs in the bible are not meant to be taken literally im afraid.

Thats just a complete lie, i doubt theres any truth in it at all. I mean theres nothing about it that could be real, if yuour capable of thinkg for yourself about your own reality, and what it means to be alive, you may come to realise that what has gone before you could not be what you envisage it to be.

That's right Adam and Eve the first two people. And they were every bit the same genetic material as humans today.

Except that Adam lived over 900 years. So did Seth, Methuselah, and Noah. Genetically, there is a problem with that. The reason our DNA doesn't unwind at the completed end is due to these repeating structures known as telomeres. The telomeres themselves have to deteriorate at every replication, and there is as yet no known way to prevent this.What this means is that sooner or later your cells can't replace the dying ones. In large enough numbers this leads to organ or system failure. This is pretty much what "dying of old age" tends to mean. Even the healthiest of people can't get much older than 110 for this reason.

So, the absolute closest we can get is telomeres that were about 9 times longer several thousands of years ago. Not exactly "every bit the same genetic material as humans today." Also why don't all the other societies from around 6,000 years ago (yes there were several) have stories of 900 year olds running around all throughout their legends?

God did create us and all other creatures. I urge you not to be fooled by evolutionists we are the same DNA now that we were back then. Don't take mistaken knowledge of variety over evolution.

The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

Yeah, christianity makes sense.

First I would like to say, Wow!! Your brain is a mess. The massive oversimplification in your statement is astounding.

The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie...

A zombie is still dead correct? Through some fictional virus the body is able to function but the person is still dead. Do I have this understanding correct of your mythical correlation? Jesus Christ is alive in every sense. His flesh is as alive as it was before His Crucifixion.

who was his own father...

This is made clear through the Trinity. Three consciences in one being. These are not separate entities.

symbolically eat his flesh...

It is the acceptance of His suffering on our behalf.

telepathically tell him you accept him as your master...

God is omnipresent and therefore talking to Him is like talking with someone in the room with you. Don't reduce it to mysticism.

remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity

There is no evil force. There is only the punishment for sin. His law states we must die for our evil acts. Jesus (God in flesh) gave His life on the cross for our sins. His resurrection was the proof that He is stronger then sin and death.

because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

Eve was made from Adam's rib this is correct. That tree was the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. You are trying to discount the occurrences here by oversimplifying what happened.

What's crazier, believing that an invisible entity lives in the sky? Or believing that life began with a big bang and we all just somehow ended up here? Truth is, we will never know how life began, or if we were created or not. Why? Because there was no one intelligent enough to document it back then. =p

get it through your thick skulls people. it is not monkeys, it is apes. monkeys have tails, apes do not.

What evidence do you cite for this claim? I hope you are not using the embryotic tail of a human fetus. Because we all know that is the remnants of the sperm tail. So I hope you have some better evidence.

Side: God's

Well I believe that we came from apes (not monkeys). There are many scientific evidences that show that we had evolved from apes such as their fossils from the past. As for the belief that we are all born from Adam and Eve, there is no evidence supporting it other than the bible and old wives tales where most had already been proven untrue (e.g. If you say good-bye to a friend on a bridge, you will never see each other again.). Hence, I would rather believe that we are descendants from apes.

The fossil record shows no such occurrence. We have apes and we have humans no transitions.

So you discount the Bible? A historical record of eyewitness testimony over thousands of years of data. You would follow a evolutionist who concludes his theories through assumption rather then observance.

By your logic perhaps you do belong in the ape column. We humans use reasoning and logic. I would rather follow eyewitness accounts then baseless assumptions.

"The fossil record shows no such occurrence. We have apes and we have humans no transitions."

And yet the biggest creationist "experts" on this topic can't seem to agree which is which.

How do we know the Bible isn't just one big tall tale? All that editing and modification over the millenia probably distorted most of the records of what happened before. It wouldn't be the first time such a thing has happened, nor even the hundredth time. Also, there are transitions between humans and apes that have been found. Ever heard of Lucy?

Side: The Monkeys'

I believe that there are some people who are direct descendants from apes ;)
