NightOwl said:Yes no offense taken, I hope Gebre (and others from the other side of the debate) can forgive my harsh tone as well. I am particularly opinionated about this because biology was a major focus of my education* and the prevalence of creationism in the Orthodox world as I have been exposed to it has been a significant stumbling block to my conversion.minasoliman said:Forgive me for the harsh tone. I just don't want anymore "evolutionists call us ignorant" excuses.
*This is not mere "indoctrination" either; I had PLENTY of atheistic professors and teachers with whom I actively disagreed.
No worries. I think you guys have been pretty civil here recently. This is obviously an emotional issue for some. I don't get emotional about it, because I truly remain open to science and scientific evidence. But I too apologize if I come across the wrong way. Stating ones beliefs will inevariably ruffle the feathers of those who disagree. But I think it's good that we keep trying to communicate in a Christian manner.
