    Pope Francis says the theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real and God is not “a magician with a magic wand” putting an end to the “pseudo theories” of creationism and intelligent design! So the Catholic Church, Church of England and mainstream churches all accept the big bang and evolution!

    Lord Carey the former Archbishop of Canterbury put it rather well – “Creationism is the fruit of a fundamentalist approach to scripture, ignoring scholarship and critical learning, and confusing different understandings of truth”!

    Christian Fundamentalist is a complete contradiction in terms!

    CHRISTIAN – A follower or believer in Jesus.

    FUNDAMENTALIST One who believes the Bible is literally true and must be followed exactly.

    Therefore they are followers of the bible and not Jesus making them non Christians!

    But worse is to follow it also makes them ideologists.

    IDEOLOGY An idea that is false or held for the wrong reasons but is believed with such conviction as to be irrefutable.

    So Christians have a loving and forgiving god and fundamentalist - well - Just are not Christians!

    Jesus Christ founded one Church, said it was to remain one, and promised that one Church the fullness of God's truth until the end of time. As a result of that divine guarantee of truth, the teaching of that one Church (which includes well over half of all Christians) never conflicts with natural truths revealed by science, like biological evolution. Truth cannot conflict with truth.

    Catholicism is the One True Faith and a person can know this with certainty by reciting the rosary every day with care. Doing so is an excellent way to know many truths about creation and evolution as well.

    There are many people who thoughtlessly accept atheistic evolution. That doesn't change anything. The trends of atheistic evolution are to weakness, disease, and death. Only one mutation in 100 is even weakly beneficial. Half are fatal. The evidence supports theistic evolution. They support creation spanning billions of years. They just aren't there for atheistic evolution or young-earth creationism.

    • since LDS scripture is incomplete and yet there are many many words written that are not in the bible ive come to a mission of seeking the mysteries of God, forsaking all other things. one of those mysterious LDS beliefs is that God and son has gone on for millennia, not just with Jesus and H.F.

    That would depend on what you mean by "evolution".

    If you mean:

    - Natural Selection. No problem

    - Adaptation of species. no problem

    - microbial gene variation. no problem

    - even speciation. no problem

    IF you mean natural abiogenesis - no ... and there is no natural pathway to produce the basic genetic information for even the "most simple" life form.

    Life is not just a "magic" combination of molecules.

    There is not even a natural pathway to sort amino acids for chirality ("handedness" for those who don't know the word), let alone assemble them into a level one protein chain.

    IF you mean that Evolution can provide the necessary natural processes to move a microbe (LUCA) to a mammal, or even a human; again - no.

    We aren't bodies. We are Spirit. That's what I believe.

    Bodies don't make you what you are.

    • If we are spirit, what we think is this life is not life because it ends. Life is eternal because we are spirit.

    Yes, I'm Christian and believe in evolution.

  • No

    The fact that there is not nearly enough evidence to sustain a "Belief" is beside the point

    God has said how and when he did it

    • i dont believe this statement at all. i believe most christians believe the bible and the book of Genesis to be authority and it plainly says God created the earth and Jesus created all things therein.

    Most Christians around the world realize evolution is proven to be fact. It's mostly just fundy ignoramuses that deny that.

      There's mountains of evidence that prove evolution true.
