Did your priest tell you this? Or someone that actually knows something about sciences?
dna doesn't evolve. its a blueprint. any tapering or changing of it is like tampering with a skyscraper blueprint.
the whole thing can come crashing down.
the fact is the theory of evolution is to deny God. it's only real purpose.

Someone needs to explain to Jesus the theory of evolution. It doesn't say we came from monkeys. It says we share a common ancestor.

And one last thing, If god made satan, then he in a sense made evil. If god can completely know every outcome of every action anyone of us ever takes down to the very atomic level why would he bother to create the universe, or angels or people? He can fully experience all of that and much more in the blink of an eye, without actually doing it. Doesn't gods omniscience negate our free will? If he can know every outcome ever in his omniscience it would be impossible for me to do anything outside of what he already knows that I will do, therefore freewill does not exist.
Another question. If man came from the monkey, how is it that man, even with grafts and repugnant forms of cross-fertilization, does not become a monkey again? You would be capable even of attempting these horrors if you knew that it could give approvative sanction to your theory. But you do not do so because you know that you would not be able to turn a man into a monkey. You would turn him into an ugly son of man, a degenerate, perhaps a criminal. But never a real monkey. You do not try because you know beforehand that you would get a poor result and your reputation would emerge therefrom in ruins.

Most people accept there is a "spiritual" force in the universe. There is no scientific proof of this, and for most, it's not even needed, it's just something they "know" and sense.
The problem with religion is that it tries to interpret the spirit world so many different ways and has been used to manipulate the weak minded from day one that it frustrates people searching for the "truth" to no end. When they hear book thumpers doing nothing but parroting off scripture with little or no understanding and a complete disregard for common sense and skeptics who need proof for any and every little thing, is just as maddening. Do you love your mother? You can't prove it, but it doesn't make it any less true.

to me it seems evolution is a fact. species mutate to adapt. look it up read a scientific journal. its proven and I'm not even going to link it because if you can't even fathom it, then why waste my and your time. EVOLUTION IS A FACT. it happens get over it. but why should Jesus deny evolution? he wouldn't. BUT WHY does evolution deny God? in my opinion it doesn't. I've seen spirits! real dead people right in front of me in the ethereal. but to me, we are Godly, without an omnipotent ruler. if your spirit and soul is eternal and I'm pretty sure it is, as I've seen freekin spirits with my own two eyes, then why do we need a god ruler? God is not real. energy is. If you really think about it, religion is a tool of enslavement, with a supporting history of doing just that.edit on 20-11-2011 by nrd101 because: typo
