Do you believe in evolution or creation and why? This isn't to judge anyone, just my own curiosity.


I don't want anyone getting into religious disagreements over this question. I am just curious how other people feel. Personally I believe in evolution.

    Your tone says it all & you're right - its a common story. Many deconverting C's embrace atheism with a passion bcuz it is such a relief. I hung out there for a while, too. But I was too curious not to dig further bcuz I hate the great human divi

    My 7th grade science teacher was a devout Christian, and he taught evolution as a part of God's creation. It didn't occur to him, from the Christian standpoint, that the world was only 6 days' old.

    "Afraid?" Why would one be "afraid" when they KNOW they are "connected" to the HOLY SPIRIT?

    Those who "proclaim" Christianity may be "afraid," but those who have "obeyed" believe "To be absent from the body, is to be present w/GOD" (2Cor5:8)!

    Catherine, I agree with you for the most part. There is a third possibility that ID not of human or divine origin could also be an explanation for what we see today. that is behind the Ancient Alien theory. It is not Christians that picked this fight

    I also believe in both. I think God could have spoken the universe into existence or done it a step at a time. One option doesn't make me eliminate the other. He did it - however he did it. No less a miracle.

    I think it takes an intelligent person to recognize the fact that someone created everything around us. Not a bunch of explosions. Where and by whom did the explosions come from? God made everything and I'm not religious, either. Neither a fool

    Does the theory of evolution teaches you to become wise? The holy book does. And it is not wise for you to dispense the possibility of myths or supernatural for what are you going to do if that day comes? It is better to be wise than intelligent.

    Why do you think YOU'LL find the answer when man has tried for 2K+ years & unanswered? What other book has as many fulfilled prophecies as the Bible?Ecc8:17 [paraphrasing] "Man will continue to seek but will NEVER find out!"

    O.k. So, what made the big bang? How did it occur? You must believe in magic. Even a dollar bill came from a tree, (paper). The chaos theory doesn't work. Try it in a sealed jar with nothing alive and wait for the big bang.

    Yes, it is as if you walk on a beach and found a watch. Would you conclude that it evolved over long time? Of course not. You know automatically an intelligent designer created it for a specific purpose. So is with life.

    Norine, when God created man self conscious, he literally surrendered His right to own him because of the inherent sovereignty of that person. But God knowing things will lead to destruction already prepared the way to redemption because of Love.

    "With GOD "ALL" things are possible" (Matt19:26)!

    A church man, Darwin was reluctant to publish his findings. He drew conclusions from findings in his 'Origin of Species'. Skeletons of primitive man were since found around East Africa and Europe to show changes that led to Cro-Magnon Man (France)

    You are blinded by your own bias. The evidence for creation is every where if you care to look. I recommend you take a fresh look and read "the science of God". It laid out the sequence of creation as aligned perfectly with the creation story.

    "But I also believe it takes greater faith to believe in evolution than in a creator." Sure does since there are too many unanswered question yet creationists have seen "SUPERNATURAL POWER," "PROMISES," and prophecies fulfilled in Scripture!

    I believe when GOD breathed into man "the breathe of life" (Gen2:7) it was GOD'S SPIRIT but we lost HIS SPIRIT due to Adam & Eve & was left was "a spirit!" Now we must "obey" to get it back so that we can "keep the same primordial talents!"
