Now, something stands out to me here. I think we all know, or at least I hope we do, that evolution means the evolution of a species, and that it does
occur. You only have to look at the flu bug to see the proof of it. Or else you would not have to get a flu shot every year. But its still the flu.
Dogs may have had a single ancestor at some point in time, but it was still a dog a canine. Evolution does not mean a whale turning into a cow, that
is something else entirely. So, when we look at the passages where the bible speaks about The earth bringing forth living creatures there is one thing
the author constantly hones in on. "after their kind" when you look at it and read it, the author places it over everything...trees, herbs, grass,
vegetation, sea creatures, earth creatures, constantly he states "after their kind" why would an author (thought to be Moses) even feel the need to
say so? But in any case as I was saying, we see something quite clearly when we actually look at what it is we are reading. Let the Earth, Let the
ocean, ...God never once takes credit for what the Earth is doing. Now yes, in a round about way he did create it..after all he states quite clearly
"in the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth" which set everything into motion. But ultimately if we actually absorb just what it is we
are reading we will see that primarily God allowed science to take its natural course. After all, he wants us to look around and see the proof of
himself, himself created science, it would be very counterproductive to work outside the bounds of science for us to be able to see his proof. And
just because we have discovered that science in no way means God is not there. At the same time we have proof that evolution exists. But to me, if in
all avenues of creation on earth God allowed natural process to happen, I don't see why that would not include evolution itself? except in one
Here is where we get tricky
so far in every avenue of creation we have seen Let, let the earth, let the light, let the waters, let let let...but
now we get to a very unique part...Humans. This is the only area of creation where God makes it very very clear "God created man in his own image"
There is no questioning it here...in all the above passages, the bible states that Everthing was Let to happen, and then it comes to a dead and stop
and states "God created humans" now..it states that he created us from the dirt of the earth, which science actually states we were formed from the
dirt (Yes, they use much more difficult words, but imagine using those words for an ancient man, while we're on that subject, lets explain time to a
man who doesnt know what it is yet, and therefore is my belief on why God used the word "Day" when explaining time
) anyway. It states that God
created "them" male and female and told them to multiply and replenish the earth..screeching halt right here!!!!!!! WAIT...BACK UP...Say what? lets
read that again shall we? in the exact biblical passage, and it states: Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and
multiply, and REPLENISH the earth.
Replenish? how can something be REplenished unless its been Plenished before?
People have many many interesting theories on this, I am abnormal, so my theory is that its exactly as it states, the world was plenished, something
happened and now it would be replenished. However, it is in my belief that with the passages above this one that yes, the bibles does coincide with
evolution and does hold at least some evidence to the side of evolution. That it wasn't all just God and hocus pocus
I also believe that yes,
there is a creator and in all areas he allowed science to take its natural place, except in one...Humans.
