  • I don't think so. I think you would be contradicting yourself. It's one or the other really.

  • I have no idea on that. As a Christian, I don't believe in evolution, but I'm not to say what someone else would think. But, I agree, emilysmom, God does indeed have divine intervention in everything.

  • yes one can b/c i do. i dont know everything there is to know about evolution (i find science extremely boring) but from what i do know i believe God established evolution and all other nature based things. why thats so hard for some ppl to grasp, i dunno...it makes perfect sense for me.

  • Of course... Evolution in no way contradicts Creation, the two actually work together very well.

  • Sabrina, can you expand on that a little bit? I'm not being tacky, but I am interested to see how that would work.

  • how it would work, would be to believe in a divine creator (in this instance, God), and attribute the workings of evolution to Him. its rather simple, really, and completely plausible.
    however, i don't believe you can only believe one or the other. that's limiting God, isn't it?!?
