I finally created an account to throw in my two cents.. thanks .
But anyways, why can't there be degrees of both in the world? I personally believe in creationism, but i also beleive there is a degree of
evolution too. Look at everything around us, I don't think God created every single living thing on the planet. That being said, I also don't think
that monkeys could evolve to humans, or fish grow legs and stay away from it's natural home.
A friend showed me a very interesting book a while back. I don't rmember who it was by or what is was called, sorry about that. But it was
about the science of creation, as stated in a previous post. One of the things that stuck with me, it was talking about how God has always been and
always will be, he was before the laws of the universe. So he dosn't have to follow them since he originaly created them.
Of course if Gods time is infinite then his perception of time has to be different then our time, since we only get to experience 100 years on
earth. One of my favorite sayings includes the difference of time we have... It's the one with the kid conversing with God asking him how long is a
second for him... if you havn't heard it i would recomend googling it. Do I think that God created the earth in 6 days, Absolutly... HOWEVER it was
from his frame of time. On earth it was most likely millions, possibly billions of years.
Anyways back to evolution, you'd have to completly stupid and ignorant not to believe some degree into it. I personally like to think of it
more like adaptation however. My favorite example is The Blind Cave Tetra. It's a fish that lives in nothing darknes, It's adapted by loosing it's
sense of sight since it is useless. This is to increse all the other senes of a fish to ensure it's survival. There are bases to every virtually
every species in thie world. Dogs and wolves all have the same base look and traits, same can be said about lizards and fish. This list goes on and
on. But no animal base can become a completly seperate species base.
That being said I could be completly wrong, and will accept if i am completly wrong. I want to learn more, and the only way to learn more is
to be open minded. So why can't we have both? Why can't the earth be 7,000 years old, or possible billions of years old? why can't we have a God?
Sorry if I rambled i just wanted to hit on every major thing that's being discused on this thread. Please note this is what I believe, not you (if
you have these beliefs bro fist!) So don't look down on me as a sub human for not believing in what you say HAS to be true.
