if the earth is 6k years old and the aborigines are 20k old where did they come from if they always been there before your god ?
Robert Shapiro, professor of chemistry at New York University and a specialist in DNA research, dispose of the chance formation of nucleotides and nucleic acids in early earth’s environment:
"Whenever two amino acids unite, a water molecule is released. Two molecules of water must be set free in assembling a nucleotide from its components, and additional water is released in combining nucleotides to form nucleic acids. Unfortunately, the formation of water in an environment that is full of it is the chemical equivalent of bringing sand to the Sahara. It is unfavorable, and requires the expenditure of energy. Such processes do not readily take place on their own. In fact, the reverse reactions are the ones that occur spontaneously. Water happily attacks large biological molecules. It pries nucleotides apart from each other, breaks sugar-to-phosphate bonds, and severs bases from sugars."

As Nygdan pointed out, evolution deals with the way life changes and adapts to environment AFTER it came into existence, which nullifies your 1st three points.
You're entitled. For me, I'm not able to separate the issues intellectually. I believe one leads to the other. Either the universe was created by design and we're no accident, or not. Just food for thought in case you've never seen this- "Polonium Halos: Unrefuted Evidence for Earth's Instant Creation "- www.halos.com...

Oh, I forgot, that word cannot be used in conjuction with scientists.
To the rational folks in this thread, I would make a suggestion. Don't even bother using science and logic to discuss this stuff with Creationists. To quote a phrase: You can't rationalize someone out of a position they didn't rationalize themselves into.
No amount of evidence will get them to change their minds. In their view, they *must* be right and all of us must be wrong, no matter what science shows.
On the other hand, I was a Creationist many years ago, so I suppose there's always that small glimmer of hope that some of them might see the light of reality shine down upon them.
