God and Evolution

For the longest time I really truly didnt believe in God. He didnt seem real to me. My life had been shit. It still is pretty rough, but I have alot of positive things too (thats another story!) Anyways I believe in him now. 

It seems like people  either believe in God or  believe in Evolution.  We are either swayed by personal faith, or by science. Neither side can prove without a doubt 100% that there is or isnt a God. Personally I was convinced through love and an experience while protecting my children (another story)

 What if its both? What if God was just crafty and used Evolution? Its obvious the earth takes care of itself. And there is just such amazingness, creativity, love and so on in the world by us humans... Maybe God is creative too?  IDK, just a thought. Not to stir up the pot or anything. Just a thought because im home alone for once and im BORED! So my obsessive mind is in hyper drive.

Many people believe in both God and Evolution. The two are not mutually exclusive. Some, like me, believe in many Gods, AND Evolution, with no creation at all. 

Faith is an interesting thing, isn't it?

I believe in evolution and creation together.Have for many years.Creation alone does not explain anything and evolution alone does not explain much more.

I believe that things evolve, it's just the very beginning that I disagree with.

I believe in god, creationalism, and evolution to some extent. God made intelligent creatures and beings capable of adaption. IMHO

I believe in both, I really don't think that belief in one excludes the other.

I believe that G-d is not limited by 24-hour days as humans are. I believe He created everything - but his 'Days' likely lasted millions of 'our' years.
