I have said this at least 8 times in the last 24 hours.
The theory of Evolution nothing to do with God.
There is a common misconception perpetuated by naivety, that evolution is creation without God and Creationism is God without evolution, but that is simply not true.
Evolution does not say where life comes from, or how life came from non-life, but it isn't anti-theist or anti-God. (I have a thread on this)
After all, most evolutionists are Christians and most Christians are evolutionists.
Science does not aim to disprove God exists, or that there is nothing supernatural out there, it's just the human desire to understand the cosmos and the laws of nature. Absolute truth is unattainable by humans, we don't know everything about everything. We don't know everything about anything, but what we do know, we don't know absolutely and what we do know absolutely we don't know completely accurately on all points.
Science doesn't permit faith and supernatural explanations inside anything labelled science. At no time in history has the acceptance of supernatural explanations for anything served us, it has only kept us in ignorance.
So the theory of evolution is science, without principals based on the supernatural.
