Group Info

This is a group devoted to exploring creation through natural science (Particularly evolutionary biology), and the harmony between science and faith. People of all faiths and beliefs are welcome. This group supports the belief in a god or creator, but does NOT support Creationism (The pseudo-scientific, religious belief that God designed, and created fixed ''kinds'' of life suddenly, without natural processes like evolution). All science-related submissions are allowed as long as they do not promote Creationism or antitheism. Religious-themed submissions are permitted as long as they have some connection to natural science (And if they don't promote Creationism, but you know that). Anti-creationist submissions are permitted as long as they are tasteful, and don't condemn God or faith in general.

Another great article from Earth Archives: www.eartharchives.org/articles…

It was a time when the oceans and rivers of the world were ruled by aliens with armored bodies and slicing bony blades in their mouths. Welcome to the Devonian, the Age of Fishes, when these creatures were at the height of their strangeness.

I got a request that you wish to display my art. Tell me about your group I having a difficulty trying to wrap my head around this anticreationist/antievolutionist group. Do you also support UFO religions like the Cosmic People of Light Powers? Most of my artwork revolves around them.Confused

Where did you get the idea that we were anti-evolution? We accept evolution, it's right there in the title. This is a group about promoting a positive relationship between religion and science. We accept all religions and philosophies, but we generally don't take purely religious submissions unless there is some connection to science.

My apologies for considering the group anti- evolutionOops! Fear . I didn't mean to offend anyoneOh Noes! . Guess I still have trouble reading stuff sometimesOMG! . Anyways, I'll let them display my Burrunjor. Actually, my soon to be comicbook franchise will have Cosmic People of Light Powers, Australian Aboriginal, Evolutionist and some Abrahamic theology mixed into the story line itselfOhm... Ohm... . Please accept my apologies.

I'm a creationist but I didn't come here to stir trouble. I have always been fascinated by others views on things. To me theistic-evolution sounds like a contradiction but maybe someone may enlighten me. Hopefully, I'll learn something interesting along the way.

If you want to read some alternative perspectives on evolution and theology, our literature and journals folder is a very good place to start. Also see the useful links widget. :)

What nonsense is this? How would you claim to be a believer in God and then say that you're not a creationist? What concept of God is that? God isn't Creator of the universe? If He is, then by definition, everything that exists that isn't God is a creation and accepting that would make one a creationist by definition. Your definition of what a creationist is, is flawed. But I get it: it's because of christians and their silly claims, and their rejection of scientific knowledge, etc. Still, some weird contradiction you have there. "I believe that God exists, but I'm not a creationist." lol that's like saying that you're an atheist but you're not sure whether or not God exists.

Most Christians are not "creationists". Yes, we (or most of us) in this group believe in God as creator, but that does not make us "creationists". Creationism is a movement that was created to oppose evolution based on the misguided idea that evolution and creation are antithetical. So if we accept evolution as fact, we have no reason to identify as creationists. Labels are not definitions. Not everyone who believes in creation is a creationist, not everyone who believes  in Christ is a Christian and not everyone who has been baptized is a Baptist. Oh, and there is a such thing as agnostic atheists.

You would be a creationist if we did not apply any additional interpretation to the meaning of the word. I'm just saying I think it's a misnomer in a way, as the word itself has meaning: very simply put; one who accepts and believes that God creates the world. The "how" (God creates) is not part of the word used to describe such a person. I understand that the word has a more specific meaning, but it's a rather silly one. Its connection to the idea of evolution is not at all implied in the word itself. I therefor wouldn't mind it if someone called me a creationist, as long as they don't add the meaning you are using here to a word that defines itself perfectly fine. I accept and believe that God is the Creator and that the world is His creation, and that's what the word literally means. I guess they should've used another word here.

"Not everyone who believes in creation is a creationist, not everyone who believes in Christ is a Christian and not everyone who has been baptized is a Baptist."

You're adding additional interpretations and specific meanings to existing words here, while using words that would need to be specified first, as their meaning isn't obvious. "Christ" is just a translation/interpretation of a Semetic word. "Masaha" is the verb for "massaging", and because this was meant to include oils, the one who's being oiled and massaged is the "Christ". It would make no sense to call someone who sees someone (or something) being oiled up and then massaged (or anointed) a "christian", or a "anointist", "massagist" or "oiled-up and rubbed-ist". 

However: somebody who only eats vegetables is a vegetarian. An animal that consumes fish exclusively is a piscivore. Someone riding a bike in that moment is refered to by observers as a cyclist. Simple examples: a vegetarian, a piscivore, a cyclist; these words mean something that is easily understood, as the words used here simply mean what they mean. Adding to these meanings without specifying it causes confusion and possible contradictions to arise. "I'm a vegetarian piscivore" makes no sense, as the words and their inherent meanings would contradict the statement made. "I'm an agnostic atheist" is saying that you do not know if there exists a god, but you do not accept, nor believe in the existence of a god. Atheism is the denial of the existence of God, hence the a infront of theism, that's a denial: a negative; "there is no deity" is what it means. It's not a guess or a doubt or some unknown: the word implies knowledge of the subject matter (deity), and the conclusion is that there is no deity. So saying you're an agnostic atheist means nothing, it's like saying "I think I'm certain", or "certainly, A does not exist, but I'm not sure about it."
