Yes, God DID do it. That gravity, thermodynamics and all the laws of physics can mostly be explained does not negate the God Who created it or sustains it.

That you do not believe it is not the universal measuring stick for others. That you deny it does not invalidate it. And the in-your-face simpleton labels you throw back at the believer is a purely sanctimonious retort. Faith required in the astronomical possibility of evolution is far greater than a faith required to believe in God, but the God Whom I choose to believe in is far more complex and powerful than that of evolution….so, why is that so simpleton?

Stop trashing language and the meaning of words. Thinking that the Theory of Evolution is an accurate portrayal of the reality of how species differentiated is not "faith."

"Faith" is a belief in the supernatural. Evolution rejects the notion of a supernatural.

You are inadvertently correct that the possibility of evolution is astronomical, but I'm pretty sure you meant to say infinitesimal.

So, if you accept that God put in place a system of physics, that through a few simple rules, the entire universe came into being and sustains itself in accordance with those rules, why do you have such a hard time accepting that evolution is nothing but an extension of those rules. Sure, maybe God did create man (along with everything else) but if he did it, he did it just like with the rest of the universe, by establishing this set of rules we call reality which includes a process we call evolution.

Evolution takes no stance on God much as physics takes no stance on God. It is a description of the reality around us and by extension, is born of and bound by the rules of that reality, ultimately physics. Where those fundamental rules came from is still a mystery.

You say that the God you choose to believe in is more complex than evolution. I would assume that such a god was more complex that any single aspect of his creation, planets, stars, whatever. Then why would he not be able to or choose not to produce a system where by life was self sustaining and would adapt to changing conditions?
