    “We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God.” Said Pope Benedict XVI

    Who really knows, and who can swear,
    How creation came, when or where!
    Even gods came after creation’s day,
    Who really knows, who can truly say
    When and how did creation start?
    Did He do it? Or did He not?
    Only He, up there, knows, maybe;
    Or perhaps, not even He.

    — Rig Veda 10.129.1-7


    Indian education minister dismisses theory of evolution because no-one 'ever saw an ape turning into a man'


    Satyapal Singh, MP for Baghpat, said Darwinism is a mythCREDIT: PUNIT PARANJPE/ AFP
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    A junior education minister has been accused of pandering to religious hardliners after dismissing Darwinism as a myth because nobody had witnessed the literal process of ape turning into man.

    Satyapal Singh, MP for Baghpat in the state of Uttar Pradesh, and a former Mumbai police commissioner, challenged the idea that Charles Darwin’s writings on evolution should be automatically taught in science classes.

    "Our ancestors haven't mentioned anywhere that they ever saw an ape turning into a man. No book we have read or the tales told to us by our grandparents had any such mention," he said.
    He reiterated his comments in a television interview yesterday.

    "Darwin's theory is being challenged the world over. Darwinism is a myth," he said, adding: "If I'm making a statement I can't make it without a basis. I am a man of science. I have completed my PhD in Chemistry from Delhi University."

    Humans originated in Africa, then some of them migrated out of Africa, their features became Europian, Indian etc. It does not mean Africans do not coexist.
    If you only believe what is at the end of your nose, one will not go too far.
    Not everyone can understand Science, but if you deny science you are not the smartest person in the world.

    Your understanding of how natural selection works seems confused.

    We didn't evolve from modern apes; we share an ancestor with them, and we are all currently extant, we modern primates, because we are well enough fitted to our environments to avoid being selected against (for now!).Here is a pretty basic primer on how natural selection works:

    A religion with largest population in the world reject this theory


    Muslim scholars rejecting Darwin's theory of evolution as 'unproven'

    Muslim scholars around the world are increasingly rejecting Darwin's theory of evolution as an "unproven".

    Muslim students and academics also said they felt they were being asked to make a "binary choice" between Darwinism and creationism, rather than both having a place.

    The claim was made by Nidhal Guessoum, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, at a conference organised by the British Council to celebrate the bicentenary of Darwin’s birth.

    He told his audience that in countries such as Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan and Malaysia, only 15 per cent of people surveyed believed Darwin’s theory was “true” or “probably true”.

    A poll he conducted at his own university showed that 62 per cent of Muslim professors and students believed evolution to be an “unproven theory”, compared with 10 per cent of non-Muslim professors.

    “The rate of acceptance of evolution and of the idea of teaching evolution was extremely low,” he said. “I wondered, who are all these educated people rejecting evolution? They are even rejecting the fact that it should be taught as scientific knowledge.”

    It is reported that only a minority of Americans fully accepted this scientific explanation!

    5 facts about evolution and religion




    Are faith and belief in evolution necessarily at odds? According to Pope Francis, the answer is no. Indeed, the pope recently reaffirmed the Roman Catholic Church’s view that “evolution in nature is not inconsistent” with church teaching on creation, pushing the debate on human origins back into the news.

    Although most U.S. Catholics accept the idea of evolution in some form, a substantial percentage of American adults reject the scientific explanation for the origins of human life, and a number of religious groups in the U.S. maintain that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution through natural selection is not correct because it conflicts with their views of creation.

    Here are five facts about evolution and faith:

    1
    The Roman Catholic Church has long accepted – or at least not objected to – evolutionary theory. Pope Francis is not the first pontiff to publicly affirm that evolution is compatible with church teachings. In 1950, in the encyclical “Humani Generis,” Pope Pius XII said that Catholic teachings on creation could coexist with evolutionary theory. Pope John Paul II went a bit further in 1996, calling evolution “more than a hypothesis.”

    None of us saw God..so does God exists?
    Can we prove or disprove existence of God?

    Nope we cant.

    Btw no religion talks about Dinosaurs yet fossils exist as evidence.

    So if all religious text is word of God why no mention of dinosaurs?
    All only talk about animals that existed post jurrasic era..cos at that time no rishi or prophet had any evidence of dinosaurs hence no mention of it.

    Clearly shows religious text could be just word of man.
    Knowing us Hindus if any rishi had any evidence of a dinosaur we would be praying to T Rex by now!
