POLL----Do you believe in evolution? - page 2
I have always felt nursing is a science-based profession, but, I wonder how this poll will turn out in the end. This poll from Gallup, is from 2009, but, i wonder how the answer will turn... Read More
2Jan 24, '13 by netglowQuote from GHGoonetteMe too, but "God" to me just means whatever that source is... since we don't know, it's easier to give a name to things in discussion. I am not religious, so to me it's more like my idea is "only the stars know" I look up at the sky and understand that the cause of us is very complex and simple, probably science and magic.Eh, I don't beat myself over the head with this kind of debate. I personally believe the world and the living creatures in it evolved physically, but are blessed with a soul which was created by God. That doesn't mean I'm going to utterly condemn those who believe in a divine Hand which created the Earth and its wonders, or which caused inexplicable "leaps" of evolution. All this will be explained to us one day when we are capable of understanding it. Have faith and guard your little corner of Creation - it's what we're supposed to do, isn't it?
1Jan 24, '13 by GHGoonetteQuote from netglowI like the term "Many in All", which I read somewhere. I think it's a very descriptive name for someThing which is totally beyond our finite comprehension.Me too, but "God" to me just means whatever that source is... since we don't know, it's easier to give a name to things in discussion.

2Jan 25, '13 by somenurseThis is such a good point,
the word "god" has no universal definition accepted by all. What one person imagines "god" to be, can be entirely different from another person's own description of what they imagine "god" to be.
BIG vast array of ideas of what a "god" might be, or does, or did.
Me, i don't believe in "magic" as a likely answer if i don't understand something,
but, i might describe some of the wonders all around me, as having such a wonderous amazement to them, imo, that THAT response in my mind from learning about those wonders,
might almost fall under the umbrella of "magical". I can totally feel awe and wonder at the universe, at our planet, and it's lifeforms which endlessly fascinate me,
but, i don't technically subscribe to believing in "magic" as the word is understood by most humans.
slightly off topic, but, since we are all carbon based lifeforms,
and that carbon was brought to THIS planet by stars crashing into it,
i have always liked looking at the stars, and knowing, "we are literally born of stardust".
i like that idea.

to each other, biologically;
to the earth, chemically;to the rest of the universe, atomically.
That makes me smile."

I love science, astronomy, quantum physics, cosmology, all kinds of science...i really do. I get super excited about it...i totally relate to that old song there in the link...that's how i feel about science, too!
sorry for derail, but, ey, i guess it's "my" thread, ha ha!! rofl.
