Those that do not believe in evolution, do not believe in God.
When the evolutionists explain how the universe evolved then we can pay attention to them.
"Believers...believe in Him...don't hang on language...hang on His Spirit...He is Big...
and He loves you...and that is the thing that is so great for you and me...He loves us (don't sweat the details...He is in control).
I don't know what god you acknowledge, but it certainly is not the same one that Christians recognize.
Exodus 20:11 "For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it."
Notice that it says "days", not "billions of years".
Evolution claims that history was drenched in blood from claw and tooth for thousands and tens of thousands of years prior to the arrival of man. Since the gospel message is based on the fundamental belief that it was Adam's sin that introduced death to the creation, how do you harmonize evolution's death and misery with (Genesis 1:31) "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day."

To understand G-d and Genesis as science try reading :
by GERALD SCHROEDER Ph. D.
His willing bondslave
For the atheist, the simple yet difficult scientific phenomena to explain is the difference between the universal Scientific God, entropy, vs. the Earthly natural Scientific God, evolution. Remember entropy, the force behind the big bang and the awesome power of the universe, predicts systems should evolve from a state of order to disorder. Evolution, observed on the planet Earth, predicts systems are evolving from a state of disorder to order. If the scientific God is all that is and ever was, it has the same level of confusion and identity as the Democratic Party.
Don't know if I can agree with that.
That the laws of Nature and Nature's God employ the agency of natural selection, I believe there is ample evidence for. The process of getting a callous on one's hand, the process of acquiring a new skill, can be described as "evolutionary" in a sense, though "adaptability" would be a more accurate term for the same process.
Anyway, it happens all the time in all time frames and has no bearing whatsoever on the event of Creation, any more than a car has a bearing on its designer.
Evolution is man's limited attempt to explain the miracle of God.
| There is still a lot more which science cannot explain than what it can, with any level of certainty. Man's pride in self through science is best demonstrated by the rejection of that which cannot be understood or comprehended. Rejection of the supernatural is nothing less than a rejection of God. You simply cannot claim a belief in God and the Bible, and also reject the countless supernatural events which God has used throughout history to demonstrate to us that we are not supreme in the universe. God's account in Genesis where He forms a statue from mud and breaths life into it does NOT jive with evolution's suggestions that we came from a pool of slime.
"Does evolution contradict creationism?"
It is clear in the Bible that God created all in 6 twenty-four hour days and on the 7th day He rested. We are also NOT in the image of an "ape". God created us in His image so clearly evolution is a contradiction of what God states. Like it or not, it is a FACT that evolution contradicts creation. Ah, Lucifer is laughing his arse off at silly Christians with "itching ears" and atheists that push this trash - evolution.
That being said, I think you overstate your case when you claim that "those that do not believe in evolution, do not believe in God."
It is possible to believe in God, but misunderstand what scripture has to say about him.
Evolution is a weak theory that I don't believe in. I KNOW G-d exists.
Evoscience for Evotards...what a waste of time.
God created evolution. How's that?
