Yup. You read right. I am a Christian...though admittedly not a very "good" one (Is there such a thing?) as I haven't been to church in about three years or so. We plan to start back up but it sure is hard to get motivated some Sundays.
I believe in God and I believe Jesus died for my sins.
I also believe that this universe is way more complicated than any scientist can explain. Just look at the Global Warming "debate" (can it be a debate if one side says it's settled?). Science just can't fully explain everything.
When I was in high school I went to a four square Pentecostal church. No idea how I ended up there but I was there for more than four years and even helped teach Sunday school. I was turned off of the youth group at one point because the pastor said that evolution was not possible.
*insert blank stare here*
Because in the very next sentence he said God could do anything (which I believe).
So let me get this straight? God is all powerful and can do anything but not create a world in which evolution exists? Gotcha. See ya later.
His "proof" that evolution couldn't exist? Break apart a watch and spread the pieces all over the world. In no way could those pieces ever "reform" to become a watch again.
Uh...except God can do anything right? So why couldn't he reform the watch?
I don't necessarily believe that humans evolved from Apes. But I do know that humans HAVE evolved ... there is plenty of proof of that just in the last few hundred years (we're taller, living longer, etc).
And people who believe that humans hunted dinosaurs and that the earth is only a few thousand years old need to get mental help. They give Christians a very bad name.
