but how can they accept it if it doesnt go with their religion??? if there is a god his word should be the end all be all, people shouldnt be able to tweak his words around so that it fits their beliefs (hopefully you understand what i meant)
Why do people have to accept a theory?
In science, a theory is a mathematical or logical explanation, or a testable model of the manner of interaction of a set of natural phenomena, capable of predicting future occurrences or observations of the same kind, and capable of being tested through experiment or otherwise verified through empirical observation. It follows from this that for scientists "theory" and "fact" do not necessarily stand in opposition. For example, it is a fact that an apple dropped on earth has been observed to fall towards the center of the planet, and the theories commonly used to describe and explain this behavior are Newton's theory of universal gravitation (see also gravitation), and the theory of general relativity.

im fairly new to these boards and from reading most of your posts ive stumbled across a question i cant seem to answer, hopefully i explain this right
creationism is supposed to be the belief that god created all living things and we came from adam and eve right???
well if god created all living things how is it new species have emerged?
im pretty certain there are species of animals today that werent around a million years ago... isnt the simple fact the new species emerge enough to prove evolution is real???
I didn't think i would have had to dumb down my post for you to understand it. But i will since i obviously have to . . .
Incorrect once again about one of your assumptions. I was raised atheist and was atheist until a few years ago. I always said that macroevolution didn't make any logical sense before i became spiritual. So your assumption that you must be religious to deny evolution is false. Ben Stein is not a religious zealot and he thinks macro-evolution is false.
