If your understanding of the creation of the world is based solely in your faith in God and the teaching of the Bible, then it is, and that is fine, for you. If the statement you make above is what you believe, then believe it. No one has the power or the right to make you think differently. That is what is great about the freedoms we enjoy in the United States.

Evolution by natural selection is not a hypothesis, it is a theory, which means (in short) that it generates questions and hypotheses that scientists can test through observation. It can never be proven, but could certainly be disproven. But it hasn't been, and I suspect won't be. It is an observable fact that evolution occurs- if it didn't, diseases would be pretty easy to wipe out.  In the nineteenth century, most objections to the idea of natural selection did not deny evolution, but that it occurred through the random process of natural selection. Now, that we've mapped the genome, can create clones, know with relative precision how mutations happen, and so on, it seems pretty silly to me that the debate (in popular culture, not among people who actually study science) has fallen back on whether evolution occurs or not.

My old pastor believed in both the theory of evolution and the words found in The Bible. He believed that life was created by God and evolved in stages over millions of years and not in the strict sense of seven 24-hour days. I'm afraid that the frustration felt in the words of the original post will continue unless he is able to open up his mind to new ideas aside from those found in such a strict and literal interpretation of The Bible.

If there is a God, do you think that he or she has given us brains that we should not use to come to our own conclusions about the world?  If there is a God, do you think he or she wants people to go to hell if they don't agree with you?  If there is a God, do you think he or she has created people who have different opinons and beliefs, so they can slaughter one another in the millions?

One thing to consider is the definition of hypothesis and theory.  A hypothesis is an idea that may or may not be true.  There may be some data/information to support it but it still needs further work to move forward.  A theory is an idea that has significant amounts of evidence to support it which evolution has.  Most things in science are theories and not laws for that reason.  We have significant amounts of evidence to support them.  The scientific evidence collected over many, many years does support the theory of evolution.

I think that there are a number of different viewpoints with regard to this question, and clearly what is called for is some tolerance and patience as we hear each other out and listen carefully to the opinions of others, no matter how much or little we disagree with them

I don't necessarily think that God needs a creator as if we look at God's characteristics it is quite possible that he exists independently outside of creation and is not subject to it. However, at the same time, I think we can see that there is evidence for some level of evolution in the world.

The problem with your argument is that your only proof is the Bible and that is a circular argument.  In other words, you are saying "the Bible is true because the Bible says it is true."  That is not a logical argument.  You can even see it in the fact that you choose to use all caps and to call Darwin a "dumb snot."  This isn't argument, this is yelling.

I am not saying you should believe in evolution.  What I am saying is that you should realize that citing evidence from the Bible to prove that the Bible is right is circular.

I personally believe that it is possible for God to have created the world and all that lives in it using the process of evolution.  I don't think we should assume that God would have tried to explain that to people 3 or 4 thousand years ago (Genesis).

This is a tough question to tackle, as alluded to by vangoghfan. One might say that a creator needs a creator, but not if you believe in God. This has not only been a deeply philosophical question since Darwin published his book, but it is a fiery debate when two or more people with opposing views try to support their personal points of view—about the existence of God, let alone whether evolution is true or not. This happens often with questions regarding politics, abortion, legalizing marijuana, assisted-suicide, and religion (to name a few). I tend to avoid most of these topics in mixed company (out in a social setting) because they are questions that have no conclusive answers.

Something that might prove to be of some comfort to you is that if you truly believe that God created everything (as I do), you take it all on faith and nothing can change that. If you read the Scriptures, you will find that there are always people who will disagree with you; what matters most is not what Darwin says or what others believe as long as you are at peace with what you believe. You don't have to believe in anything that you choose not to believe in. When you were young, you might have believed in the tooth fairy or monsters under the bed. But as we get older, we are presented with more information, and we are confronted with the choice of deciding what we choose believe.

I don't agree with Darwinism. Some people do. I find that as long as we are free to believe what we want, as is the case in the U.S., we are exercising a right that people in other countries around the world can only dream about. Did you know that some people don't believe that the Holocaust took place? Even with pictures and reports and eye-witnesses? And that some folks don't believe we walked on the moon!

Find what you believe in, and let the rest go. Some people believe in fortune tellers and horoscopes. You can't control the world, only what you think. And the more we learn, the more people take us seriously when we speak. Don't let it get to you. (And as post #1 noted, others have written in support of your ideas. Read their work and see if you don't feel better.) Try to smile and enjoy the "theater of the human race." There is nothing quite like it.

Peace.

I like the above answer.  If God created Earth and humans, who created God?  And around and around we go.  Could it not also be possible that God created whatever organism originally evolved in the primordial soup?  Is that a compromise?  Probably not.

Everything has a creator; nothing creates itself. Which means the creator has a creator, which means that that creator has a creator, which means that that creator has a creator, which means that that creator has a creator, which means that that creator has a creator, which means that that creator has a creator . . . .  This is just one of many serious philosophical problems with what you posted. You may be right that that there is a creator, but you need to make serious arguments, not simple assertions. There are lots of intriguing books and there are many serious thinkers that have made some good arguments in support of your position.  Why not check them out?

Instead of merely making an unsupported denial of evolution, perhaps you would like to explain why you think that evolution is false. What, scientifically speaking, do you feel are the reasons that evolution is not possible?
