Either the story of creation in Genesis is true or it is not. If they say Adam and Eve were just metaphors then why cant it be true that the stories of Moses, John the Baptist and dare I say it Jesus just be metaphors.Evolution is scientific fact. Yes it was scientific fact 600 years ago that the earth of flat but we’ve progressed since then.

Evolution is just as much a religion as Christianity, Muslims, Hindu, Jews etc….. I personally think the church apolgising to Darwin about his theory is a slap in the face to God

As many in faith are starting to understand evolution doesn’t say religion is wrong…People that IGNORE evolution understand very little about this world.

Instead of living the life in the world made by GOD in a GODLY way we are disputing on how this world was created????? Pretty strange.Will we be questioned about how the world was created or how we spent the time of our life in this world. So better not wasting our time on this topic.On the other hand appologizing a long ago dead man makes no sense at all.

Either/or thinking is just a creation (pun intended) of a limited mind to cope. We all have done it at various stages of our individual development. But will we mature in our development – that is the challenge. Will we learn humility – the kind that says what we know is little, and what we don’t know makes us uncomfortable? I wish mainstream media would pick up this article. Instead, it props science as advanced when it’s painfully slow, as cited here: http://sites.google.com/a/centersoflight .org/milwaukee/our-community-blog/its-a- soul-thingThanks again for the refreshing reporting.

God is the maker of all things as declared by Him in his word–humans, animals, fish, birds, insects…”according to their kinds”. This means according to their species. For churches to embrace ideas such as birds evolving from horses– as those who follow after Darwins theories insist, shows they do not take God at his word, are poor students of the Bible and do not want to be thought of as ‘simpletons’ which is the constant refrain of those in the scientific community towards anyone who accepts the Genesis account. Well, you know, God did tell us we’d be called all kinds of names–careful however, its the names that God calls you that matter. I for one do not want to be called by God “you of little faith” or “follower after false teachers”. Chrstians–suck it up and take the criticism, instead of pandering to secular humanist theories.
