My point is that Christianity and Evolution are mutually exclusive. You cannot smuggle even a modified Evolution into Christianity, and still have any need of the sacrifice of Christ (as one man) to eliminate sin that came into the world (through one man).
I have not even addressed the fact that evolution is NOT proven, and is essentially unprovable, as such, it is a faith, not science. All the fossil evidence backs sudden appearances of species. There are at least 5 major global catastrophic extinctions shown in the fossil record. All of these speak of sudden acts of creation, or destruction, not the slow evolution over time as evolutionary theory predicts.
Not to mention that you date your checkbook from the appearance of Christ on this earth whether you believe in him or not. Yet not a single human being has ever observed one species "evolving" from another. Even if you combine near species, such as a horse and donkey, you get sterile offspring (mules). Which confirms the Genisis account that said things will have seed in them bearing fruit after their own kind. Tell me, plant a Tangelo seed and what do you get? You don't get Tangelo's!
Now I ask you, prophet of a false religion: What mechanism can you offer that produces symbiotic relationships among species? You are not allowed to use any form of teleology to propose such a mechanism, only naturalistic forces can be used to describe how such relationships can come about. (Queuing Jeopardy theme music)

As a Dr. of Ministry, I think your assertion that there is not enough sin is ludicrous. I work in the inner city. There is still plenty of sin for Christ to die for.
Science never proves anything. The Theory of Evolution explains how life formed after creation of the first life on this planet.
There are over 100 observed speciations.
