It just occurred to me that there are in fact a surprising number of reasons, albeit none with any substance to it. I will try to categorize them as they appear in this thread.
Quite a few come from poor understanding of the theory and its implications.
Poor grasp of the Theory of Evolution is so common and consequential that it sometimes leads to "believing in Evolution" for entirely the wrong reasons. I have once seen a Kardecist Spiritist who was too attached to the word itself and...
In Hinduism a sanyassi is someone who has given up all worldly attachments and lives in contemplation. An atheist has stopped contemplating, for he has fixed his/her views. So the life of a sanyassi is not for him/her.
While thinking long and hard (so to say) about the fact that according to the Jewish sages the Name "Shaddai" is inscribed, and or engraved, in the Jewish flesh sacrificed on the eighth day, I penned a premature (so to say) thread called Death of the Flesh Named Shaddai . ------It seems utterly remarkable to me that in Jewish ritual practice, flesh Named "Shaddai," is bled and sacrificed on the very day Rabbi Hirsch calls a new day, a new birth, a rebirth, the beginning of an entirely new...

I would preferably like to limit the responses in this thread to Christians themselves because the question will not make much sense to those of other faiths, but I certainly won't deny anyone else from participating. I have added a poll for a shortened version of the question without the backgrounder in the quotes.
Recall the story of Abraham. Abraham was old and so the prospects of children were slim to none. But God had promised him children if he were to move to...
I'm really sorry if this is in the wrong place, because i'm new to this website.
Let me just get to the point then...
I think that if homosexuality is a genetically inherited trait, like most people believe, then it might be a major point against evolution. Of course, it might not be at all (which is why I wan't to debate about it).
I also think that if evolution is real (please don't tell me to stop being so ignorant, because I know that I am) then it might disprove the fact that...
