Evolution and God do and can co-exist. If you take everything in the Old Testament as being literal, then you are going to have a problem. We know through science, that man developed from a lower form, the earth has changed in many ways.
Yet the Old Testament is more of a historical story. It has been translated and re-translated countless times. Did 7 days really mean 7 days as we measure days. There is no mention of the western hemisphere in the Bible.
If you check the book of Genesis, there are two stories about creation. One is the Adam and Eve story that everyone knows. The second is a few pages over and says that God created Man--not a man or then man, just man as in Mankind. God then created woman--not a woman or the woman, but woman, as in Womankind. If you accept that then you can assume that more than one man and one woman was created and that would account for all the ethnic differences.
I am not a theologian. I have seen miracles. I almost died from a perforated colon, but my doctor told me that he could not take the credit for my survival. His remark was that someone was not through with me yet. My son survived a near fatal automobile accident, but lived. There are miracles everywhere, but they are usually small. When I had my colon surgery, the doctor said I would need a colostomy. I did not think I could handle that. He looked at me and said it would "temporary." I felt better immediately--temporary was something I could handle--it was only eight weeks before I was back in the hospital being reconnected.
Everyone points to Darwin's theory of evolution that said man descended from the great apes. But the question is raised why do great apes still exist.
My theory is that at one time, there were two creates, both resembling the great apes, but there were slight, ever so slight differences, that science has not yet identified them. In those differences, one species was given the gift of a soul and the other was not. The species with the soul evolved into the species we are today.
Finally, maybe God did create the earth in seven days -- it was called paradise. Man was created with free will and did not heed the warnings and was banished from paradise. We do not have a timeline to follow after that.
In conclusion, I chose to accept the creation of the world by God as a matter of faith. I cannot prove it and no one can disprove it. I believe in evolution and further believe that evolution was and is part of God's plan.
