You do realise...well, obviously, you DON'T realise, that the theory of evolution does not depend one iota on whether the universe popped out of nothing, whether it existed forever, or whether God created it.<quoted text>
Well, that is what science actually claims. Ever read Stephen Hawking? Yeah, spontaneous generation. Nothing took nothing and then caused everything.
I know it's ridiculous, but that's what the pointy heads tell us we must believe, right after they deny the logical necessity of a primary cause. Hell, even Plato deduced an uncaused first cause, and I don't think he could be described as religious.
The ToE is not ABOUT the creation of the universe. Biologists have no idea how the universe started and do not need to. Look out the window. There is one.
Your media hype masters like that little butterball of deliberate misinformation Ben Stein have managed to convince you that all scientific theories are rolled into one, mushed together in a way that everything depends on everything else. As if evolution depends of what Hawking says about the Big Bang.
However, the truth is that even if God created the universe, we have enough evidence to be sure that it was one in which evolution occurred, and the origin of everything is not relevant in this case.
