In high school science there should be no talk of creationism. It is not science. Evolution, believe it or not is science. Creationism is a Christian MYTH. Creationism should be taught is high school. In history class, along with all the other mythology attached to other religions.
The story of Adam and Eve is no different than the stories of Greek mythology.
The Holy Bible, especially the Old Testament is a collection of Myths.
Moses parting the Red Sea...Myth
Noah and the Ark...Myth
Sodom and Gamora...Myth
Adam and Eve...Myth
Etc, Etc...
That is not to say the Bible is all myths, there are of course the gospels of the disiples, eyewitness accounts of the life of Jesus, andthe same can be said for most other religions practiced today, mostly myth, and some historical accuracy.
Christian Mythology does not belong in a science class.
Well mythology means it isn't true.... But if you were to have studied the bible at all you'd notice that there are a lot of facts historical wise in the new testament.. Science and The Bible go hand in hand if you look closely. Why think that god did everything with a snap of his finger ... Mary being a virgin and having a baby sounds a lot like artificial insemination.. Sodom and Gomorrah sounds like it was destroyed by a nuclear weapon since it vaporized lot's wife.... God is the father of everything it mentions in the bible that humans couldn't even bare to comprehend what God knows.... THE FATHER OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY... I believe... Obviously hean is either light years away or in a completely other dimension... For all we know when the Earth was made it could've existed with age already.... Adam and Eve didn't start out as children they had Adult bodies

God like our parents has given us all free wills to choose between good or bad, " Atheism ", or " Theism ".
You still avoid the core question.

Do you believe God has free will?

Yup, and in the same book Egypt was supposed to be defeated too:
"Ezekiel 29:10-11 Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia. No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years."
And what is the hang up with the ancient Jews and the number 40?
Jesus also prophesized the wrong amount of time that he would be dead and buried. Or else his disciples got anxious and raided the tomb early.
From what I understand of Hebrews the number 40 just means 'a lot of years' Nice of them to be so precise, don't you think?.:-)

Just using all dictionary and schooling I've had. Of course the new line of science does seem to want to play with the correct meaning of the word because of the Multi dimensions ideas.
There really is no need for them to change the definition of the word. what science really need to do when they are talking about our universe and only this dimension the they should have a new word meaning that rather then changing words meaning. The word universe was first coined to mean all space, matter and energy. Not all that is known at the time for if that was the case Hubble would be looking at other universes.
"Your God is a real mystery. He has never shown himself".
In modern times you are correct. However God has shown himself many times in the past. Have you never seen the movie Monty Pythons "Quest for the Holy Grail"? Proofs right there.
You write:
"Just using all dictionary and schooling I've had."

So what you are saying is that basically you have no schooling at all in the subject....you are just tapping into discussions on creationist junkscience websites. Right??

<quoted text>yes, yes it does. the Earth is not a living entity. no planet is. the Earth just harbors life. more accurately, life developed on Earth.
Can you definitively and decisively say with evidence to support your hypothesis that Earth did not uniquely develop this life in a singular fashion within this solar system? Because as it stands to reason , the very reason there is life on Earth, is directly related to the fact that it IS Earth. Now I will listen to the reasoning that Earth is not the reason life developed, but think you will have a very hard time in finding supportive evidence that life did not

*in fact need Earth^^ to develop.

In fact I (like the Eye in FBI) look forward to your evidence life doesn't need Earth at all. To thrive in this...universe.

That is it!
People can not agree on every thing, hence the belief systems or faith will comes in.
Beliefs do differ.

Life on earth is what it is because of kinds. Life on earth must require diversified types of things which peform within given outlined areas of skill or characteristicly suitable locations for each kind to work to be fruitful and to multiply.

Microbes are found as much as 3 miles below the surface of land.
It certainly appears that the Earth itself is what made life possible, it is a fact that it is alive, but whether it is conscious
is a larger question. Since the biosphere is what made biogenesis possible and is unique to Earth , I don't think we can say it is not alive, it is the only thing we know to be alive.

That is where your lack of understanding comes in, God is the creator of life and the universe. Until you guys understand that, arguments will never come to an end.

OH, oh!
I thought science are un-limited. Where science stops, God starts.
God made that to be possible. You guys should accept that.

I, too, am waiting - but I suspect that our emotional states are quite different.
