would you people PLEASE stop

Creation is NOT a push with evolution, nor the fields of nuclear physics, astrophysics, stellar evolution, chemistry, biology, geology, or every other scientific field that directly refutes the nonsense in your storybook, so stop looking at them as equally valid ideas already! I'm tired of having to argue the obvious to the functionally retarded!

There is another aspect to "theory" that is very important. It HAS to have the potential to be proven false. There is the possibility that a discovery could be made that would prove the theory of evolution false. It's not likely, but it's possible. That's what allows it to be a THEORY.

You cannot disprove Creationism. To do so, you would have to prove that there is no God, and there's no way to do that. Just as there is no way to prove the existence of God. Therefore, Creationism cannot ever be a theory.

Actually, you can disprove Creationism, because you can disprove every assertion made by creationism with the exception of the God assertion, furthermore, if the God assertion is defined as the bilbical god, it's existence can also be disproven through the same means. Much in the way that you find a black hole by the effect it has on other things, not by seeing it directly, you can disprove the existence of god by showing that it is not the explanation for any effect on any part of the natural world. Quantum Mechanics disproved the christian god with finality upon it's inception, humanity just hasn't caught up with science yet.

But then, you're an optimist, so I shouldn't try to bring you down. Keep reaching fro that rainbow, Cap'n

I was very carefully trying to word that to not imply that I believe in Creationism. Because I don't. I may have failed.

My intent was to explain why Creationism should not be referred to (or taught) as a theory. It does not hold to any of the requirements of a theory, including the one that was not mentioned in the post - having the possibility of being disproven.

You could disprove, with logic and science, that the assertions made by Creationism are probably false. However, there is literally no way to actually prove that a magical being who, lets face it, basically defies science in every way imaginable, does or doesn't exist. You can use scientific tests to disprove it based on accepted laws and "truths" of science, but as the magical being in question doesn't follow those laws, you can't prove it in reality. This is what makes it impossible for Creationism to be defined as any kind of science, let alone a theory.

No I got that, I was just disagreeing with your assertion that creationism cannot be disproven. Creationism asserts certain things as being true. Since they can be proven to be false, Creationism is false. Since creationism cannot be used as a predictor for invention or experiment, literally every single time something is done that runs counter to the assertion proves it to be false.

That's all I was saying.

I once got into a whole argument about this. Took him 8 posts to finally shut up

That's why it's not called a hypothesis.

So.. I play World of Warcraft.

I go to Un'goro crater, and see dinosaurs and bones and **** . I don archeology and find fossils and such. I go to Sholazar Basin and learn that Oracles evolved from Murloc's. I go to Pandaria and here a story about how Merloc's living in Pandaria with imbued with intelligence by the mystical waters of the content and became the Jin'yu.

Then I go visit Ulduar and learn that the Titans created the entire world, and I have to kill this dude named Algalon so he won't hit the reset button and start all this evolution back to square one.

Is Warcraft Evolution, or Intelligent Design?
User avatar #2 to #1 - IloveWAFFLES (06/28/2013) [-]
Intelligent Evolution.

The start of evolution was made by an Creator, in this case the Titans.
We evolved yet we were created.

Is there an official religion that believes in this? Wouldn't an all powerful being make a system capable of handling it's own **** and adapting to survive rather than just make a set stock of creatures? Isn't THAT a more perfect system than just making things the way you want them?
User avatar #7 to #3 - squiresparkle (06/28/2013) [-]
Those are my beliefs, but I don't recognize the spiritual authority of any religion, I just call it noodleology

Titans in WoW are not all powerful, they couldn't destroy the old gods for example, they were more like xel'naga in starcraft, they are mortal and corruptible (like sargeras or whatever his name was, i do not remember since it has been a long time since i've played WoW)
User avatar #5 to #4 - Sargeras (06/28/2013) [-]
Yes, like me.

Also, they couldn't destroy the old "Gods" because they're Gods.. But they did imprison them!
#6 to #5 - hejlate ONLINE (06/28/2013) [-]
Meh, close enough, not like they can spread corruption and cause madness and chaos all around them!
