Creationism and Evolution?

Last night, someone made a good point about creationism and evolution.
There are many people against the idea of evolution, as well as creationism. But I think it can be both at the same time. We are 96% primate. This has been scientifically proven. "God/Gods", (whatever that is for you) could have created the universe, and everything on Earth simply evolved to what it is today. Now, we all know that we have evolved in many ways throughout time. We have gone from creating the wheel, to cars that run on vegetable oil and plug into the wall; from eating with out hands to using silverware.. You get the point. So it's not too hard to believe that after everything was created by whatever higher power you believe in, we were originally primates that just evolved into the human beings we are today. Makes sense doesn't it?

  • If you fully understand the science, then no it cannot be both at the same time. However you point out great ideas... There's just more science to fill the gap. : )

  • I meant with OUR hands, not with OUT.

  • They just found a human finger in a cave in Siberia that is 40,000 years old. The cool thing is that, it is a human finger....but the DNA from the finger does not come from primates that we thought we were related to. It's realy an exceptional discovery. It says that we may not have come from primates after all. Explain that one. (i don't believe in creationists theory, i really think Aliens played a huge role in our evolution. History shows that neanderthals (our supposed ancestors) disappeared without a tracte when real humans came along. What happened to those neanderthals? And are we really related to them? Adn why when did the disapear without a trace when the first homo sapiens started walking the earth?

  • I firmly believe in creationism. God has allowed science to make their interpretation... but I refuse to believe that I am evolved from a single celled animal...

  • You refuse to believe because you don't understand.

  • Yes, totally possible that creationism and evolution are both involved in who we are today.

  • In the beginning — specifically on October 23, 4004 B.C., at noon — out of quantum foam fluctuation God created the Big Bang. The bang was followed by cosmological inflation. God saw that the Big Bang was very big, too big for creatures that could worship him, so He created the earth. And darkness was upon the face of the deep, so He commanded hydrogen atoms (which He created out of Quarks and other subatomic goodies) to fuse and become helium atoms and in the process release energy in the form of light. And the light maker he called the sun, and the process He called fusion. And He saw the light was good because now He could see what he was doing. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

  • And God said, Let there be lots of fusion light makers in the sky. Some of these fusion makers appear to be more than 4,004 light years from Earth. In fact, some of the fusion makers He grouped into collections He called galaxies, and these appeared to be millions and even billions of light years from Earth, so He created “tired light” — light that slows down through space — so that the 4004 B.C. creation myth might be preserved. And created He many wondrous splendors, including Red Giants, White Dwarfs, Quasars, Pulsars, Nova and Supernova, Worm Holes, and even Black Holes out of which nothing can escape. But since God cannot be constrained by nothing (can God make a planet so big that he could not lift it?), He created Hawking radiation through which information can escape from Black Holes. This made God even more tired than tired light, and the evening and the morning were the second day.

  • And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let the continents drift apart by plate tectonics. He decreed sea floor spreading would create zones of emergence, and He caused subduction zones to build mountains and cause earthquakes. In weak points in the crust God created volcanic islands, where the next day He would place organisms that were similar to but different from their relatives on the continents, so that still later created creatures called humans would mistake them for evolved descendants. And in the land God placed fossil fuels, natural gas, and other natural resources for humans to exploit, but not until after Day Six. And the evening and the morning were the third day.

  • And God saw that the land was lonely, so He created animals bearing their own kind, declaring Thou shalt not evolve into new species, and thy equilibrium shall not be punctuated. And God placed into the land’s strata, fossils that appeared older than 4004 B.C. And the sequence resembled descent with modification. And the evening and morning were the fourth day.
