• Couldn't agree more.
  • Created to evolve.
  • The Bible makes it seem like evolution isn't a reality so the religious reject it (even though it's obviously a known FACT).
  • There are plenty of people who believe in both. Most of them follow something called the "Time Gap Theory" or "Gap Theory". On a related note, I tell you one thing I don't get. Why do so many people think the Bible says that the earth is only 10,000 years old? That's not how I read it. Genesis is confusing as can be to me, but this part seems clear, "In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth (big bang?). Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters." It doesn't say anything about how long that lasted, could've been billions of years while God thought about what he wanted to do with it, right? In the beginning... the earth was formless and empty... isn't that what scientists say as well?
  • There are multiple categories of evolution. Three or four, including the one that shows transition from ape to human, have not been fully proven. But one has, it's the kind that allowed the cat to evolve into a family of sub-species such a leopards, tigers, lions, etc. and caused people living in different regions to develop different physical traits. This form of evolution (I am told) is mentioned in the Bible. I haven't seen it myself, but the person that told me about it provided some sort of reference. Can't prove this, but it makes sense (the quote said something about "insert animal name here" will somehow change into different kinds but will still always be a "insert animal name here")
  • Lots of folks have managed to incorporate both concepts. Who's to say how long a day was back then re : the Earth was created in 6 days...
