Do you believe sunlight makes plants grow or that antibiotics cure illness? How do you pick and choose when to believe science over the bible and when to believe the bible over science?

What the heck are you talking about? Yes plants function on photosynthesis. Where in the Bible does it say they don't? Antibiotics work on certain illnesses. Are you referring to demon possession causing illness in the Bible? If you were writing a cartoon for little children wouldn't you describe germs as little demons that invade your body? You have to remember that sometimes God is talking down to us because we humans are so limited. Sometimes the parables are obvious and sometimes they are subtle. Did you have a real example that you don't understand?

Few people argue that evolution, the big bang, etc. are incorrect because science is an invalid study. They simply feel that it is fallible & humans make mistakes and/or mislead people on purpose using science to fool them. Which is somewhat ironic since that is what many scientists who give talks on creationism are consciously doing. But that is neither here nor there. The fact that some people choose to disbelieve certain aspects of scientific study because it challenges their belief system does not mean they can't believe in anything that science has taught. It is possible for the system in general to be valid, but certain branches to be wrong. Though to believe that in good conscious I think that people should explain the flaws scientifically.
