That's like asking "which section of the library proves evolution, because there's the biology section, then then zoology section, then the archeology section...


But it isn't like archaeology has a different explanation for evolution than does biology.

If they believe that a God exists, yes.




How can each explanation, which contradict with each other, each be correct?

And it's not like religion has a different explanation for God than Philosophy does.

One just deduces his existence through evidence, and the other, through logic and reason.

Much like archaeology deduces evolution through fossils, and biology does it through massive extrapolations.

They don't. All religions say "God exists", is that right?

Religion is a part of philosophy, which is why it is the section on philosophy.

There is no god but God, and Muhammad is the messenger of God. - Shahada

Do not have any other gods before me. - 1st Commandment, Exodus 20:2

Hinduism has thousands of Gods, Buddhism has no God [disputable], etc. They are all in dispute with each other.

But this is irrelevant to the original topic, which is about evolution. Do not diverge into Biblical consistency unless it is to support or reject the idea of evolution

Each explanation of "God exists" is correct.

Then you shouldn't have a problem finding all the books.

I don't see a problem here.

Hinduism has a creator God, and I'm don't know enough about Buddhism, but the only difference is the perceived qualities. The fact that a creator God exists for every religion is not in dispute.

Because all religions explain that God exists. How are you not getting this?

I'm starting to think OrangeWizard is trolling everyone in this topic. I just find it hard to believe anyone could be so dense.

Even if the explanations contradict each other?

If one religion said their god created the universe, and another said that their god did it, are they each correct?

What about the religions that are polytheistic? Are they correct even against the claims of monotheistic religions or even those that do not have a god?
