Can you be Christian and accept the theory of Evolution?
Christianity says man was created by God. Evolution says man evolved from a small amoeba over time. Is it possible to believe both or must we choose one or the other?
Many people do. Its called Intelligent Design. The idea is evolution occurs but is under the influence of a god.
When God created man, He created him whole, therefore man didn't evolve from a lower type of organism, thus the answer to your question is no.
The former, absolutely. Why? Because what is God? An old man with a white beard and flowing robes sitting on a golden throne on fluffy white clouds? No.
What makes us so presumptuous that we claim the ability to define God in human terms? If, as Christian dogma iterates, God is "everywhere," how can He be matter-based and homo-sapien in thought, word and deed, and the Bible literal? Not a chance.
I would say yes to this question. Many of my friends are Christian but study evolutionary principles and believe the theory to be true. It may be that life was started off by God, but has since been allowed to develop through evolution.
