Eyes that look around us and see it happening every day. Particularly as we can force "artificial" evolution (evolution of species by intentionally changing it's environment).
What makes you believe in an invisible, undetectable ET from another universe that creates each new species as it arrives?
It is widely accepted in our religion that days translates to periods. There were a total of six periods during which the universe was created. Each day refers to a significant event that took place during the universe's creation. The reason it's not "days" is because the concept of days wasn't even established until we humans established it ourselves.
And the reason it's written as days in the religious books is because is because explaining the whole concept of the creation of the universe to people back then would be impossible. We know how the universe was created and how long it took because we had centuries of research available. Our ancestors didn't. So they needed a simpler interpretation. We believe in the Big Bang and evolution. We just believe that there's a higher force driving it all.
I understand that many Christians no longer accept that their scripture means what it says; that it means something far different, that the change in belief has occurred because, just as you say, we have learned better.
But the question remains unanswered; why do you believe there is a "higher force" (that most name "God") driving it all. We have exactly zero evidence to support that belief; why is held as Truth, then?

Is there room for evolution and Christian belief? Where Christians can't deny the age of the planet, Evolutionist can't prove the jumps they believe in. As far as I know there is no mixed belief system out there but there seems to be people with this mixed belief. Thoughts?

Is it possible to believe in both Creation and Microevolution?A comment on another question sparked this. Those who believe in Creation often scoff at the idea of Evolution eg we can't be descended from Apes etc..Adam and Eve etc. Yet, someone answered with the idea that they believed in...

I came to the HubPages Forum several months ago posting a "challenge" that must have seemed presumptuous (though I didn't intend it) or (perhaps) arrogant of me... By the end of it though, I considered my beliefs to be as substantial, if not moreso, than those of anyone who came to check...
