    Can creationism and evolution coexist?

    Yes they can co-exist in the World together, One is based in Faith... the other in Science... the only time they come into conflict is when Creation supporters try to force Creationism into Science Class. Creation and the Creator are strictly Supernatural,,, The Creator does not exist in the Natural World, and therefore is not subject to scientific proofs.. The Natural World (Material) is subject to Natural Laws... if the Creator put the Natural Laws into place... then the World runs according to those Laws.  But those laws are not subject to random change just to please an individuals (prayer)

    The Truth of Evolution is supported by a wide array of Sciences...and while not every detail is known... way more than enough is known to be certain that Man (us) evolved here on this Planet over Eons... we continue to evolve... whether we can survive our destructive natures remains to be seen.

    Whether the Big Bang was God Creating the Universe or not... the 2 approaches to explaining life will not defeat each other and will continue to run parallel unless Creationism continues to try to bend Science to its will... if that keeps on happening it will destroy itself on the Mountain of Knowledge that Evolution is.

      If anyone can look at the skulls of the various Homo types and not see themselves then I probably can't say anything to enlighten them. To suggest that there aren't any links just shows you are blinded by religious rhetoric to scientific proofs. Done

      Please share this wealth of information!  You sound like you may be the first humanoid that has finally found the missing link between Homo erectus & Homo sapiens; LOL!  What religious rhetoric?  Monkey faith?

      Insane M (well-fitting name, by the way), the evidence of transitions are all over the place. Please just Google "transitional fossils," find reputable scientific websites, and READ! FYI, it takes more effort to study than to make stupid comments.

      I'm sure I have studied it more than you albeit the entire thing involves more storytelling than the Bible.  Perhaps when the day comes that your own mind evolves, you will quit being brainwashed by trending groups of scientifically accepted morons.

      It's very juvenile to assert that you've studied more, without any knowledge of me whatsoever. Also, it's characteristic for those with no intelligent answers to resort to name-calling.

      No, it's just that I've seen your ilk all over the Internet and it's the best way to respond.  Hey, if you like to read, you can start here: http://www.newgeology.us/presentation32.html

      You seem like a very angry person, unable to have a civil conversation without using a plethora of personal insults. It only reveals to others the shallowness of your mind. This can be helped by studying all sides of an issue.

      LOL!  Actually, I find the ineptitude of most people that are involved with such debates, to be amazingly amusing.

      Haha...to a point I agree, though coming from a person who's name starts with "Insane" seems ironic...........   ;-)

      My screen name is a reflection of humanity, as the majority is insane and mundane while I'm actually sane and otherworldly; ha!

    I see nothing wrong with saying that we can adapt and acclimate to our surroundings, but it seems that the real debate starts when the theory of evolution basically tries to say that we were once a trilobite that got motivated and turned into a fish that eventually decided to go all monkey on us, and ultimately the Homo sapiens spawned from the Homo this and Homo that, blah, blah...  Other things like saying a raptor turned into a turkey, also make no sense, nor does such things like "walking whales."  Other than that, sure it can co-exist...  LOL!

      The problem with these arguments is that they are based on false premises... The word 'Theory' in Science is a proven Premise. ie a Fact until proven otherwise.  Your use of 'theory' is just a 'premise.' The Theory of Gravity/Evolution/etc are proven

      I'm failing to understand your response...  For example, they have not "proven" or even shown a true, factual link between the Homo erectus and the Homo sapiens as of yet, etc.

      Insane, no one tries to prove that a raptor turned into a turkey. You are creating a straw-man argument, a logical fallacy. I understand because I once struggled with this too. You must realize that evolution is VERY SLOW. Research subtle changes.

      I realize your brain is very slow.  If you can't detect the obvious storytelling involved with this mythical storybook tale that portrays itself as scientific, you truly are an idiot.

    They're going to have to find a way to co-exist if religion doesn't want to go extinct.
