Did God use evolution to create the different types of life?

    There is no "direct" evidence of God participating in this universe. Indirect evidence could be that God created nature to do its thing and we certainly have plenty of direct evidence of nature doing its thing. We have Deists because there is no direct evidence of God's participation, yet they believe a higher power is required to get the ball rolling. There are plenty of religious stories we have to ignore simply because we understand nature much better than the original writers of these stories. Personally, I believe we know things that would actually prohibit the existence of any Gods. In particular is the natural order of complexity. Things never begin complex and that makes sense considering it takes time to put simpler blocks/forces together to gain complexity. Even with nature, complexity is formed over time and began with simpler formations/forces that joined forces over time to gain that complexity. Even the writers of religious stories about creation gave God time to form the complexity with the wrongful assumption that a God could magically bypass forming its own complexity over time. With "every" example of complexity having simpler beginnings, what good reasons would we have to think "any" complex existence just is? Even our own intelligence grows in complexity over time and we do have natural limits, something that "all" other existence also shares, yet a God magically bypasses this necessity as well. However, back to your question, if you did not know what I just shared with you, yes, one could conclude a possibility that God got the ball rolling and nature did the rest.

    It is all designed so we will believe that everything came naturally and is most likely to stay that way . So that eventually we will think about what we see and realize that it had to of come from God . But rally everything exists according to what God decides to imagine ..

    Could be. He could have bred the various kinds of zebras, for instance. But atheistic evolution doesn't satisfy the laws of thermodynamics and ignores entropy.

      You don't understand the laws of thermodynamics or entropy.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laws_of_thermodynamics
      Entropy is simply the ability of energy to do work, where in a "closed" system, potential energy equalizes to zero, where the same energy exists, but the ability to do work is gone.

    Evolution is caused by something that gradually pulverizes a population of organisms be it the weather, an new invasive predator or a virus that accidentally integrates itself into a germ cell and becomes a hereditary trait that modifies all future offspring.

    In other words, evolution is caused by a malfunction in DNA's error prone replication system.

    No, because God isn't real. Evolution is 100 percent natural.

    No, I think he just created them as you see them.

    Evolution by natural selection explains the 4 billion year history of life. The Magic God Fairy had absolutely nothing to do with it. Evolution is a natural process. A god fairy's magic wand was not required for anything.

    Christians, keep your idiotic god fantasy out of science.

    One more thing:

    Christianity should have been thrown out a long time ago because it's ridiculous, not to mention insane.

    No, not at all. 

    Evolution occurs and begins at a moment of origin. 

    It serves as a measure of what takes place 

    during the time that something continues. 

    Therein, evolution began "after" God created life. 

    It did not serve as a force within the creative endeavor.

      Close... but not quite.

      Inferring the existence of an infinitely more complex 'creator' in order to explain the existence and complexity of the universe is redundant.

    It would seem so, yes.
