Did you know that accepting evolution doesn't make one an atheist?


I keep seeing conservative evangelical Christians trying to prove Yahweh is real beyond a shadow of a doubt using the fact that they don't believe evolution occurred or occurs. Why do they bother? Most of the people in the world who think evolution happened and continues to happen believe in some kind of God or another. The official position of the Catholic Church is that their Yahweh is powerful enough to use elegant, logical tools like evolution to achieve His goals. Why do people try to prove God exists by trying to disprove evolution when evolution says absolutely nothing about God?

    Thank you for your clear explanation. Any insight into why some think it's impossible to accept science and believe in God?

    I'm trying to understand from what mental place the study of how reality works presents a threat to believing in ephemeral things that are immune to cognitive dissonance and require zero evidence or proof to be believed in. Thank you for your answer.

    Thank you for your response. Any insight into why some people seem to feel belief is threatened by what average theists seem to see as a fascinating study of their God's magnificent creation?

    How are we to know when a "day" is a "24 hour" period and not a million years? The bible states Jesus fasted for 40 days. Most of us assume it was 40 (24 hour days). Christians also assume God created the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th.
