I never said math, chemistry and physics required faith.
I DID SAY belief in evolution and belief in no God requires faith.
Plz re-read what I wrote so you can understand. I knew what I wrote would be a precision dart into these atheists nerve center because recently (last week) I had several in depth conversations face to face with my atheist coworker ~ just fresh out of college mind you.
He had been brainwashed into thinking evolution was a fact based upon facts! I provided the link to this video and he and his gf watched the entire clip. The same clip beard will not touch with a 10 ft pole.
Suffice it to say after watching the video has a new respect for world views and I thank God He allowed me to crack open that locked door with TRUTH.
chemistry, physics and math are the foundation for biology
(chemistry is the lego pieces, physics determines how they fit together, and math is our very much figured-out understanding of that relationship)
and because biology functions in an inherently emergent way within the framework of physics, and the chemicals and space available, the evolution of species is entirely determined by a faithless process
first though, you have to be able to truly imagine what 1,000 years time means. I mean think about that. Think about what 1,000 years means. The entire Roman Empire came and went in 500 years. That's only ~20 generations of people during the Roman Empire. Nothing meaningful can happen evolutionarily in 20 generations. No wonder people have a hard time understanding evolution, because we as humans are never going to see it.
Now think about what 10,000 years means.
Now think about what 100,000 years is.
That's 200x Roman Empires. That's 400x American Empires.
Now imagine 5 times that - 500,000 years. Now we're getting up to an evolutionary timescale. And we're not even in the millions. And the earth has been around for 4.7 BILLION years. So just think about time and what it really means...
watch this (its only 10 minutes and you'll enjoy it): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fKBhvDjuy0
And so when you have that true understanding of time, its not an overly complex concept at the macro level... things compete for space and materials, the ones that are best at doing their thing (because of slight variances in their bodies, just like I'm better at basketball than you because I'm 6'4), over generation and generation and generation, start to steer the species in that direction. And if a part of the species isolates their gene pool from another part for long enough, because a river cut through the population, or a group decided to go look for food somewhere else, and if they stay away for long enough (thousands of years), they may change so much to fit their new environment, that they may become unrecognizable to the first group - who, most likely has changed in some way from their original point also (because this is thousands of years later, and there's a good change something in their genes became more specialized, depending on the mixing of the population and the dynamics of the specific environment)
that is simply how things happen. genes and dna allow for this
