How could evolution provide voiceprints and finger prints that are unique to each of us, and one of a kind? Without a superior intelligence behind the design, that we can't even fathom.
I, for one, never tire of these kinds of questions. Why you say?
Because they can be so easily knocked over like a straw in a hurricane.
The questioner looks at something as totally random as fingerprints and voice patterns and ascribe them to a hidden creator. A creator that can only be proved by faith.
Faith is a good and true and kind thing. But is only useful when backed up by actions, past deeds, and discovered facts. In this case, the questioner is using "blind faith", that is faith without any underpinnings of logic.
My 3 year old daughter has faith that I will come home every evening, because for almost every evening for the past three years I have. I have faith that I will get paid next week, because for every two weeks I have gotten paid. See? My faith is governed by tangible actions. I work, my employers are great people, and I go home every night.
The questioner looks at the whorls of the fingers and the difference in everyone's voice, and ascribes the randomness of the world to an intelligent designer.
The questioner will also ignore the fact that we are just mammals that are totally related to all the other mammals on the earth, that if you prick the birds of the air just as well as your own finger, you will bleed. The questioner will ignore that much of life in the world is completely related to each other. That most life has lungs, hearts, kidneys, fingers (or toes).
The questioner may also ignore the copious evidence pointing to the existence of evolution.
God knows I'm a skeptic, and probably there was a creator who started the first spark of life, but surely, that creator has moved on and left us to our own devices. So we may quarrel, debate and forever clog up the pipes of the internets.
After all, early Christians thought that electricity was the tool of the devil, so maybe they should stop using the internet, and leave us be, to make the rest of the world move forward.
Well God farted big time and the Big Bang came out of his as. All of the gas from those burritos were the 70 sextillion stars was that gas. The Cosmic Backround Radiation is the left over sound from that fart 13.7 billiion years ago when the Universe was created. God farted a Quattordecillion times faster than the speed of light which explains inflation. From his gas which are the stars, all of the elements were born and everything including people and animals are stardust. So first there was bacteria and that later turned into a tadpole. The tadpole grew legs and a frog was born. Frogs were suicidal and started cutting off their legs so they evolved into snakes and snakes later grew their legs back and evolved into mammals like deer. Deer became monkeys. Monkeys became humans through natural selection when female monkeys wanted the chimp with the long penis so they could stick it down their throats and suck on it. Thus all the chimps with short peises went extinct. Later girl monkeys didn't like hairy monkeys so the guys shaved so that they could get laid, and over a long time of millions of years humans were born with big peises and less hair.
it's simple...evolution is simply trying to rob God the glory He deserves for such a wonderful creation. There's no way the earth and life on earth could have just happened by mistake or bc of some big bang or whatever it is they are saying. its ludicrous. but I understand that it takes faith to believe, without faith it seems ludicrous what im saying myself. im aware of that. but even scientists dont know how it all began. I mean, really, if we were really from monkeys then where the heck did the dern monkeys come from. and why was there explanations in the bible for phenomenons occurring in nature wayyy before scientists even discovered these things.
Because large components of the development of fingerprints and voices are either developmental or environmental in nature. For fingerprints, a person's genes tell their cells how to divide, but how the specific shapes on the fingers develop is up to chance variations in the environment. Voices are, as far as I know, up to a combination of environment, genetics, and early upbringing.
You may as well attribute the random patterns in sedimentary rock, or the uniqueness of every flower to god. Amazing, yes, divine, no.
"it's simple...evolution is simply trying to rob God the glory He deserves for such a wonderful creation. There's no way the earth and life on earth could have just happened by mistake or bc of some big bang or whatever it is they are saying."
Let me get this straight... you don't even know what the theory in question is, but you're convinced it's wrong?
Besides, evolution doesn't explain the origin of life, it explains how it developed from simpler lifeforms into more complex ones.
Ok, so even though we have hard evidence of the big bang, it's ludicous.
But the idea of a creator god who wants us to believe in him yet can't present even the smallest speck of credible evidence he exists - in spite of being omnipotent and omniscient - makes perfect sense.
It's true that science doesn't have all the answers. But in no way does that imply the holes of knowledge are filled with magic.
I just realised that I missed something obvious about this question: What does evolution have to do with it anyway? Regardless of whether or not you believe evolution, we do all have unique fingerprints, irises, voices, etc, and it's not because we're evolving. If you don't believe these unique aspects of us develop naturally, do you actually believe that god individually sculpts every person's fingerprints?
I agree with editor, just because your too close minded, or just plain dont understand the science behind evolution, doesnt mean god just "oh im going to create the world" and poof people occur, and we arent robbing anyone of credit for this world, nature should get the credit, not some supperior being like god.
"Without a superior intelligence behind the design, that we can't even fathom."
There are also many flaws and vulnerabilities in several organisms throughout nature, and if they were designed, they certainly weren't designed intelligently.
It's genetics. Science. And just because you don't understand the science, doesn't mean that someone else divinely made it happen because he's all powerful and felt like it :)
wow...I never thought of...fingerprints...good one! (im not poking fun either...im serious...) im still debating evolution and such...so yyyeah thanks!
...you do know we are all genetically unique don't you? Why would you expect us to look identical, when no 2 of us are even genetically the same?
teachel: Your well reasoned and considered argument, backed up by solid scientific evidence, has convinced me. Thank you for your contribution.
arachnid, the Bible says God sews people together in their mother's wombs, so it must be true!
...to heck with this DNA nonsense.
I'm sure teachel will be emailing us all copies of her biology degree soon. She speaks with such authority.
That's the beauty of life. We need to discover it.
bbb, LMFAO! I'm sure that post will get deleted.
Why, what's wrong with expressing my opinion?
Evolution is not real.
I'm with editor.
