    Evolution relies on education and at least an understanding of Science.

    If you have a bible handy, turn to the first book, Genesis.  That's why.

    I can tell you why *I* as a Christian, do not believe in MACROEVOLUTION - which is what you cannot see; as opposed to MICROEVOLUTION - which everyone who is around living things can see. It is about four questions:

    How did life begin?

    Is any form of life really simple?

    Where did the instructions come from?

    Has all life descended from a common ancestor?

    Evolutionists insist that the first question is not about evolution. But it has to be, because before you do anything, you have to start, and know HOW to start.

    The second question has been answered NO by scientists who work with synthetic chemistry and origin of life research, and except for hopeful expectations, which are not science, that truthful answer is not likely to change.

    The third question also cannot be truthfully answered in the affirmative, because the simplest forms of life or the evidence of it that we can find in fossils are still way too complex for humans to figure out how it happened.

    And the fourth question - although it is answered Yes in all evolution textbooks and papers, cannot be proven, because again, the fossil record shows sudden appearances of living things rather than the smooth progression such as the admittedly erroneous march of chimplike animals to man that we still see in science books.

    Charles Darwin himself wrote in his famous book about this omission, and could not provide an answer. After 160 years, and seeing corrections and neo-Darwinian theories, there still isn't a conclusive answer to this issue. The last science textbook I read still said that the question has not been answered, and it had only more theories.

    The bottom line is, it takes a mind to produce information, and without it, there is no reason for the Big Bang to come into existence, much less the far more complex phenomenon called life. The apostle Paul's words still remain irrefutable:

    Romans 1:18-20

    " 18 For God’s wrath is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who are suppressing the truth+ in an unrighteous way,

    19 because what may be known about God is clearly evident among them, for God made it clear to them.

    20 For his invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable."

    More discussion about those four questions, and a fifth one, are here:

      Nope. The Big Bang isn't part of the theory of evolution.

    well I do .

    of course evolution happens and eventually we will evolve into who knows depending on the environment and food source and medical breakthroughs and technology. .

    in the book the time machine he went billions of years into the future and found we were a thing living in the sea .

    yes, evolution is so slow we cannot see it happening and they say we evolve into something else every one million years .

      "They say . . . ?" Well, I say that they don't say. And evolution can be seen happening all the time in certain organisms.

    Evolution needs a force to be able to happen which is not natural laws, because of the complexity of process, it can't happen randomly. And the process has both engineering & painting, & it never happens without those. Just simplicity accepts evolution is a process which is random & happens. There is nothing random like it in the world. We don't believe in randomness if we believe in G-d who controls everything...
