Fair enough, but you will admit that having to acknowledge the designer's designer is an issue/problem for your theory, yes?
I also have a problem with people professing to be devotely religious while simultaneously supporting the evolution theory unless, of course,
you are worshipping a monkey or a half-fish, half lizard-like creature emerging from the ocean for its first breath of air.
I don't think it's fair to say that evolutionists are "worshipping a monkey..."
their are many evolutionists whom also have a faith/belief
in a higher power or creator...Darwin comes to mind. All evolutionists are not atheists, by a long shot and i say that as an old-earth creationist
myself. Perhaps the opposite, all atheists are evolutionists, is true but i'm not even sure about that.
At the moment, I cannot recall (could be wrong- haven't read it for a while)a single specific reference to evolution in either the old or new
Depends on what you mean by evolution i guess. Most creationists, myself included, don't believe in universal common ancestry (young or

[Evolution; God's Greatest Creation]
Macroevolution describes the development of taxonomic groups above the species level which are created through a series of microevolution events.
Evolutionists know macroevolution happens primarily due to the evolution of the Biblical kinds into all these new genera of new species we find today.
However, God also created groups of similar organisms at the beginning. He created a group of birds, mammals, reptiles, etc which are more similar to
each other than the other groups. Because God and evolution both create groupings, it is difficult to determine which groups are original and which
are new. The evolutionary process which creates these natural groupings is being credited for higher taxonomic levels than is appropriate, but
macroevolution does occur none the less.
However their are many Christians who have no issue with evolution theory on any level.
Theistic Evolution - One Christian's Perspective
I am a Christian who accepts the scientific theory of evolution. This is an essay describing what I believe. You will have to sort out and determine
what you believe. There is a lot of nonsense out there about the theory of evolution: that it denies the Virgin Birth, that it denies the bodily
resurrection of Jesus Christ. Hopefully this essay will at least dispel some of those false statements.
You could find more examples of Christians who support evolution, i could name several prominent evolutionists whom are also Christians if you'd
I am sure my comments will get some of you going............
Usually true, but i'm not that guy.
I don't have a need or desire to disprove evolution in order to confirm my faith. Their are plenty of
creationists who do for sure, but i don't and i actually enjoy the debate...when it's civil (rare occurance nowadays it seems though). My
acceptance of the Christ as my Lord and Saviour has nothing what-so-ever to do with my creationist beliefs (i'm still open for debate), but that's
just me. Rren is the spirit and not the body, so if i truely share a common ancestry with the great apes or the original single celled life.....so be
it, i ain't mad at 'cha.

(edit)keep putting an "o" in ancestry for some reason....i put an extra "l" in naturalistic too most of the time.
