Why do people believe in evolution and not Intellegent Design?
Okay, I asked a question earlier about why people think believing in God is primitive. This is my sequal to that question. People say Intellegent Design doesn't exist, and evolution does. Then why do humans have the ability to love. We love other people, we love our work, we love money, we love all kinds of things. Love would serve no purpose with evolution. In fact nothing would have purpose if only evolution existed. There's no reason to even teach evolution, if it exists, becuase we would have no reason to live, we really would be here just to live and die, so why even bother having a job and family, and loving people. There's no purpose in any of that if we just live to survive and then die. Intellegent Design is necessary if you want to have a purpose for livng. Love is real, and so is purpose, we aren't on earth just to live and die, we have a creator. Why do we accept evolution as the only theory of truth? Can't there be other possibilities as to why we humans exist? Although I don't agree with all of your opinions, I have to say you all did a wonderful job answering. I found your answers for this question to be even better than my other question "Why do people think believing in God is primitive?". Thanks so much for all of your answers, I think there are holes in both evolution and Intellegent Design, I just happen to lean more towards Intellegent Design. I hope someday we will be able to prove one or the other completely. I think Christians don't believe in both because of the way the Bible explains creation. I know a lot of people don't consider the Bible to be a reliable source, and I know it's not a science book, but it is a historical book (it's non-fiction, not fiction) I know not everyone will agree with that, but oh well, I can't change people's opinions, and I don't see that as the big problem, I believe there is a God and I want to prove it completely. Thanks again for answering and reading!

First to tackle your inquiry alone, some 'people' believe in Intelligent Design and some in 'evolution.' Others discredit both. What people select to 'believe' in is an investment of faith, but certainly not worth arguing about, given the subjectivity of it and how belief is a matter of personal perogative. Whether... More

Some people believe in evolution, but not ID, because they just don't believe in a supreme being. The ability to love comes from the fact that our species has advanced to the point that we are outgrowing our old survival instincts and are learning to really think and feel... More

Creationist belief seems to come from the human frame of reference, in that the universe is such an amazing thing, how can it possibly have evolved, someone must've designed it. On the other hand, evolution can be proven - *but* who created the rules that made the universe and evolution on earth (and maybe other... More

Why we exist and how we came to exist as human beings are two different questions. Evolution is not incompatible to believing in God. There are plenty of people who believe in both. As to purpose, lots of atheists would argue that their life has plenty of meaning without any god or afterlife... More

Some people believe that there is a supreme being guiding our lives, fates, and oppertunites, and some just don't. The idea of a god (in my humble opinion) sprouted from the human need to see reason in all things and not have to blame things on themselves, to use a god figure as a scapegoat, to be able to say it wasn'...

I don't know that "people believe in evolution and not ID" as a whole. There are many beliefs and grey areas.Since there is not proof, fact, evidence, there can be no one answer. Can both exist together? Can all creation ideas be true at once with some people coming from one thing and others from other things? What if... More
