So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
I dont even know what to say here. Your bible is not a history book. It is far from it. If you took everything out of the bible literally, I would
take everything out of your mouth as a joke. We know evolution occurs. We know why. We know how. WE know dinosaurs existed. Just because people
who did not have the technology to understand DNA, or to unearth finds of such magnitude were not around when your bible was written, does not mean
that evolution does not exist. It does not mean that dinosaurs do not exist. It does not mean we didnt evolve from apes. All that means is that
they were wrong. WE have learned better over the many years since the bible and other such texts were written. The slowest zebra is the one who will
get caught by the tiger. Those slow genes will not be passed on. Each generation is closer to perfect, though they may never get there. It is
painfully obvious, and we can certainly take it for fact. Now, we may not have evolved from apes though I find it likely that we did:
(if that isnt proof i dont know what is haha)
We could have evolved from something else. We did evolve though. Just because creationalism is wrong doesn't rule out a god either. If people
payed attention to why we believe in god, rather than closing their minds to everything, they would realize this. We believe in gods as humans
because we don't understand everything. Even with evolution, we cannot explain what makes something alive. We can not know for sure what created it
all. That is why we have gods, because we dont understand everything. Whether they are real or not is irrelevant in this discussion though. The
fact of the matter is that people refuse to see the truth because they are too lazy to think for themselves.
