Five Major Misconceptions about Evolution Copyright © 1995-1997 by Mark Isaak [Last Update: October 1, 2003] large part of the reason why Creationist arguments against evolution can sound so persuasive is because they don't address evolution, but rather argue against a set of misunderstandings that people are right to consider ludicrous. The Creationists wrongly believe that their understanding of evolution is what the theory of evolution really says, and declare evolution banished. In fact, they haven't even addressed the topic of evolution.
Introduction "Man, once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without a rudder, is the sport of every wind. With such persons, gullibility, which they call faith, takes the helm of reason, and the mind becomes a wreck." - Thomas Jefferson "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." - 1 Thessalonians 5:21
I am not a Christian. In my discussions of this fact with Christians, I have repeatedly run into one major misunderstanding. The Christians assume that if I believed the Bible were true, I would become a Christian; that is, they believe that my reason for not being a Christian is that I don't believe in their god. This is not the case. One disclaimer: The thesis of this essay is that even if a God as described in the Bible does exist, he is not fit for worship due to his low moral standards.
It is commonly believed that God is both timeless and eternal, and that he exists somewhere outside of both time and space. He is said to have created mankind for a purpose. This is a discussion on the atheist's view of these concepts.
