You don't need to go to church. You're pushing an angle and it's obvious.

By definition, no apparent, perceived, or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the Scriptural record. Of primary importance is the fact that evidence is always subject to interpretation by fallible people who do not possess all information.
Answers in Genesis Statement of Faith
And if God is real, then that statement is true. Many believe he is and their is as much evidence to suggest that possibility and want to explore what is possible about knowing more through science. A worldview that is ANTI God, hates God etc, would like nothing more than speculating on what was is our common ancestor. Who cares? I mean really what is so freakin fantastic about coming from a common ancestor of a monkey?
What if we DID? Now what? It still explains nothing more than the process but doesn't explain the BIG question and certainly doesn't refute a deity. Unless of course you insist, in which case my suspicions have been right all along. I really don't care how a God being would make us but when I look at life I never see transmutation going on I just see man evolving into man and until they can come up with that discrepancy all apes having a two more chomosomes while such a little thing like that makes such a vast difference to the point the only thing humans have in common with monkey's is,,,, well,, atheist's

I stopped reading after that... you obviously don't know anything about the Theory of Evolution.
Don't create false statements and then attempt to debunk them... try debunking what the theory ACTUALLY states.
I don’t like to deal in absolutes. I am sure there are some religions out there that have acted in moral ways. It just isn’t usually Christianity. As for pointing fingers we need to stop blaming everything wrong with the world on someone else. Religions will only be as corrupt as the people that follow it and buy into it. Yes, I have seen the Vatican. It is horrible. At least now-adays we have thing like the internet where everyone can have a voice. There is also way more people. There is a better chance that a leader or activist will stand up against the problems in the world.
Never in the history of the world had religion acted in an entirely moral way…
questions on cosmology, we get more largely untestable theory
THAT is the problem, if something as complex as a god can exist for no reason then why can't energy exist without a creator?
