If it the true story of creation to appeal to all of mankind it must be both simple and yet hold deep truth. Genetics is much the same. Both continue to unfold "hidden" truth the more you study each.

The beauty of the Bible (for me) is that it is both simple and intellectually challenging at the same time.

Only a few writers were poor fisherman, the rest come from every walk of life known prior to 100 AD. A very unique thing in this world.

Would refur to yourself as a christian yet you believe evolution,evolution is nothing but a way of saying the bible is not true only a way around what it teaches,you can gather all of the junk you want but you will never be able to convince anyone with any bible knoledge that evolution existed,just because some person said it or printed it will not make it true so if you want to push evolution then your going to have to come up with solid evidence,you can slober out all of the bull you want but its worthless,you have no proof,how did the earth get here,man,night,day,water,seed, plant a rock and see if you grow rocks,plant any seed and you will produce what ever seed you plant,why because god formed the seed and made it that way,its as simple as it sounds god gave this to man after he made the earth.
Actually, I believe there a many Christians who believe in Evolution.

No christian will believe in evolution,just because one says he/she is a christian does not make them a christian,if one chooses to be a christian there are certain steps to be taken then he/she without dobut can be certain he/she is a christian,this idea that all one must do to become a christian is to ask god into one's heart is badly mistaken,that didn't work for paul in acts when he was struck down on the road to damascus,god blinded him there as paul was crucifying christians,puting them in bondage what did christ instruct him to do,the lord told him to go into the city,to the street called straight and require about a man peter and it shall be told the there what to do,now if you are serious about wanting to know what one must do to become a christian check and see what paul was told to do,paul was a praying man when god struck him blind because he refured to god and said what is it lord,its easy to get on the wrong track,why would one think he can get salvation by one one small piece of scripture when he has the new testiment of many,many,scriptures.

Since you cannott take something and make it into nothing. Or take nothing and make it into nothing. It,s a fact that the earth always was present in some form, some where. some time.& in some manner. It always was in existance and always will exist. Maybe changed greatly or even swallowed up by the sun or a black ole ect. but the basic elements that make the planet will stil exist

Reed,

Like it or not, I am a Christian and I believe in evolution. Perhaps you are not.

Regarding salvation, my Bible reads that it is of grace, not works. Romans 10:9&10 lays it out pretty clear. Some people want to "lay down the law" and make it tougher. The makes man have more control and diminishes the power of the resurrection. You want to put people into bondage to your definition of what is required, no matter what the NT says. It is widely accepted that Paul wrote Romans and he was the "vessel" to take salvation to the gentiles. I'll believe what he wrote, not what you say.

The recounting of Paul's conversion gives almost no detail other than he clearly became a believer and was water baptized.

Paul was already a believer,he said what is it lord,but god was showing paul to be a christian he had to hear,believe,confess,repent,an d be baptized in water for the right reason,the watery grave,Paul was an educated man but belived wrong because he later stated i crusified christias with a clear counches,[sorry abouy the spelling]the idea one can become a christian by asking god into ones heart,just wont work,yes i know its taught but its not what the bible tell us.

Look,

Paul was a believer in the law, the OT, not the NT, not Christ. He was not yet a Christian until believing on Christ and the baptism was thereafter the witness to his conversion, his salvation. In the OT, Jews (such as Paul) referred to God the Father as "Lord" not Jesus as "Lord." Same is true today.

Paul was a very influential Jew that persecuted Christians. Then he became a Christian and an Apostle.

I don't think I'll use you to determine who is or who is not a Christian. Again, I'll use the Bible (rightly divided), not the opinion of some angry hater.

How many people have you brought to Christ?

Think about it!

Religion is based on FAITH, not PROOF!

Science is based on PROOF, not FAITH!

This is why those who believe in Scientific evidence,
can BELIEVE IN GOD, we accept GOD ON FAITH!

How great is the FAITH of those that profess to Believe in Jesus, who need to deny the PROOF OF SCIENCE?

Ask you minister to explain the conundrum.

Faith with out works is dead,{the works is obeidence}to gods word,"hear-Romans>10-1 7 faith cometh by hearing,hearing by the word of god">Believe-John-8-24 i say therefore unto you,that ye shall die of your sins> Repent-Luke 13-3 i tell you,nay;except ye repent,ye shall likewise perish>Confess-Romans 10-10 for with the heart man believith unto righteousness,and with the nouth confession is made unto salvation >Be baptized-1 Peter3-21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us,not the puting away of the filth of the flesh,but the answer of a good conscience toward god,by the resurrection of jesus christ"if you look at this man is saved at the point of baptism,every person that was baptized in the new testement,was baptized within the same hour or same day.Now if you choose to disagree,its fine with me,its not a loss to me,only you.I have saw men say they got saved but was not baptized until 2 weeks later,but thats not what is tought by the new testement and the very reason Paul was told exactly what "he must do" add some thought to these scriptures and please tell me if or why you would disagree,feel free to express yourself you will not offend me.

Its not god more than gods word that one must believe if you dont know gods word then its not possible to do gods will,this is why we are told to study to show thyself approved.Have you ever saw god or christ,no then you can't testify to god,but you can to his word if you study the word.

Actually science is not proof. Science's truths change as we continue to build on things we think we know. Especially where living things are concerned.
It takes a certain amount of faith to accept science too. Many scientific truths are only theory.Frequently those theories are proven wrong.

Science generally deals in facts, theory and laws. Truth is the domain of philosophy and religion.

Generally theories are tested continually against new facts as they arise. Most theories remain intact with modifications on the way to being called a "law." Is "relativity" a theory or a law at this point? Most of the math is proven correct by physical evidence.

Laws generally are simple expressions of small parts of some theory, not the entire theory. A law becomes an absolute and rarely if ever is overturned. That theories are modified or dropped over time is evidence the scientific community is always testing its beliefs and is willing to accept it is wrong when proven so. Better theory will generally replace portions of discarded theory.

Evidence for evolution continues to mount and most of the theory is unquestioned at this point, only built upon and strengthened. The most remarkable thing about Darwin is that he got so much right with now knowledge of genetic mechanisms for inheritance of traits.

The Bible is truth and full of "truths." Many of these are taken on faith. As one walks through life and tries to practice the truths, one begins to accept the truths work and prove them to be real, practical, provable principles.

There are parallels between how science is tested and faith is tested.
