After reading through the thread on Christianity and why one believes, I have to state...it's why I incapable of ever doing such in my life. There are some grossly blatant incorrect things about evolution as well. Evolution is not a game of chance like in Monopoly or Blackjack. After shooting down some misconceptions about evolution, we'll talk about GOD strictly from a philosophical sense then dismantle Christianity.

The chances that life just occurred are about as unlikely as a typhoon blowing through a junkyard and constructing a Boeing 747. Evolution by natural selection is a two-step process, and only the first step is random: mutations are chance events, but their survival is often anything but. Natural selection favors mutations that provide some advantage. And the physical world imposes very strict limits on what works and what doesn't. The result is that organisms evolve in particular directions.

The phrase "survival of fittest" is widely misunderstood!!
Many wrongly assume it means that evolution always increases the chances of a species surviving.Evolution sometimes results in individuals or populations becoming less fit and may occasionally even lead to extinction.

There are several ways in which evolution can reduce the overall fitness of individuals or of populations. For starters, natural selection can take place at different levels – genes, individuals, groups – and what promotes the survival of a gene does not necessarily increase the fitness of the individuals carrying it, or of groups of these individuals.

Now let's talk about Christianity...you first have to talk about it's origins.

When Osiris is said to bring his believers eternal life in Egyptian Heaven, contemplating the unutterable, indescribable glory of God, we understand that as a MYTH.

When the sacred rites of Demeter at Eleusis are described as bringing believers happiness in their eternal life, we understand that as a MYTH.

In fact, when ancient writers tell us that in general ancient people believed in eternal life, with the good going to the Elysian Fields and the not so good going to Hades, we understand that as a MYTH.

When Vespatian's spittle healed a blind man, we understand that as a MYTH.

When Apollonius of Tyana raised a girl from death, we understand that as a MYTH.

When the Pythia , the priestess at the Oracle at Delphi, in Greece, prophesied, and over and over again for a thousand years, the prophecies came true, we understand that as a MYTH.

When Dionysus turned water into wine, we understand that as a myth. When Dionysus believers are filled with atay, the Spirit of God, we understand that as a MYTH.

When Romulus is described as the Son of God, born of a virgin, we understand that as a MYTH.

When Alexander the Great is described as the Son of God, born of a mortal woman, we understand that as a MYTH.

When Augustus is described as the Son of God, born of a mortal , we understand that as a MYTH.

When Dionysus is described as the Son of God, born of a mortal woman, we understand that as a MYTH.

So how come when Jesus is described as the Son of God, born of a mortal woman, according to prophecy,turning water into wine, raising girls from the dead, and healing blind men with his spittle, and setting it up so His believers got eternal life in Heaven contemplating the unutterable, indescribable glory of God, and off to Hades—er, I mean Hell—for the bad folks...HOW COMES THAT'S NOT A MYTH???
