Perhaps if you saw someone raised from the dead or healed miraculously you would change your viewpoint. Jesus lives! Those who saw his resurrection were willing to die for what they saw.
Besides the science that you worship changes it's foundation every couple of generations or so. It's about as stable as this years fashion trends. Why I believe it was the Scientific American that published a debunking of the Wright brothers heavier than air flight after they had already demonstrated it in front of many witnesses.
As it stands I have a Ph.D and two masters degrees in science and engineering. I can confidently state that everything you believe about the universe will be proven wrong within a hundred years or so. Evolution has resisted the trend only because it is unthinkable for hard core atheists to admit to the existence of a designer.
Nowhere in there does it say end God.
Furthermore, I will repeat this, Darwinism is NOT Evolutionary science as we know it today. And Charles Darwin never sought to end god. He was a devour Christian after all.
ScienceDaily (Apr. 9, 2008) — The Human Genome Project revealed that only a small fraction of the 3 billion “letter” DNA code actually instructs cells to manufacture proteins, the workhorses of most life processes. This has raised the question of what the remaining part of the human genome does. How much of the rest performs other biological functions, and how much is merely residue of prior genetic events?
Mister Redneck, I haven't always agreed with things I've seen you post, but here's a star
You are a lucky man, indeed....you are wise, and you have a daughter (see, I've been reading!) who has you for a father...and sure she is going to seek truth and wisdom, based on your brilliant guidance...don't be surprised, though, if she imparts a little guidance in the other direction as well!

Actually that isn't really reflective of my belief...I was trying to speak from 'the other side' I guess. As a Panentheist I believe God is both interconnected with everything in Nature, and is also outside of Nature. So I believe Nature is divine in itself
How can something be outside of Nature? It it exists it is part of Nature. Therefore, if god exists, god is part of nature, and should be discernible through scientific observation
"God", how did this entity come into existence and why?
Christians say that God always was and always will be, but this does not make any sense unless time is not linear.

I don't think Christian Voice understands that there is DATA backing up Evolution. Whereas creationism, I'm saying this as a Christian now, is BS.

Creationism makes far more sense to me, but should be tought by parents and Sunday school workers. Both theories, both unproven.

project, to add to what you just said...
there is evidence of a 'merging' of human chromosome pairs, sometime in our past....but these two genes merged at one point....but are still separate in the Chimpanzee's genome.
I saw this somewhere, maybe you can elaborate.
Humans have 46 chromosomes, 23 from each parent, whilst most other primates have 48 chromosomes.... I remember now, there is series of online lectures by Ken Miller, and it explains much better than I......
gist is, we humans have 46 chromosomes because, two fused together, at some time in our evolutionary past.........and the markers to prove that fact are still there....
