I know I'm preaching to the converted, but here's an excerpt from another past blog post of mine...
"I doubt there are many people alive who can profess to understand - wholly - the beautifully simple 'theory of evolution by natural selection' while they do not believe it to be true. Once understood, the theory is extremely hard not to accept... Unless of course either: 1) The ideas from a person's religious upbringing clash completely with those the theory implies (e.g genetic relations with 'lesser' organisms, such as bananas), so that person refuses too accept/is happy to disregard just how much explaining the theory actually does; or 2) They don't really understand it, with understanding being key."
The whole post can be found here.
There are also a couple of questions I'd like to ask the Atheist Universe community:
- 1) How does a regular Friday post from me sound (bearing in mind I live in London, so for you guys around the world the timings may be a little awkward)?
- 2) As I'm currently sharing old posts from my blog, would catching up with what I'm presently writing be favourable?
