If and when 'evolution' is openly and plainly taught with the clear disclaimer that it is an unobservable theory, impossible to recreate in a laboratory, then it will be the enemy of nothing. But since they teach it as doctrine in public schools, colleges and the media, as though the theory is not controversial in the science community, it is ipso facto an enemy of God, as are all lies that pretend to be truth.

Hi The Crusader, I like you am a sceptic - as are all good scientists. I like you am also a person of faith, and shall defend that always. I have had my struggles with the Theory of Evolution, and have always maintained that it needs to be discussed as just that - a theory.

However, I ask you this question, as I ask myself: If evolution is a false theory, why are we all waiting on pins and needles to see if the "bird flu" is going to evolve to the point where humans can pass it freely to each other, without any birds being involved at all?

You are familiar with what is required for a scientific theory to become such are you not?

Evolution is a fact. If you isolate two dogs on an island, after a period of time they won't resemble the original dogs. There will be adaption and modification; however, I don't think you should expect to find they evolved into a cat (obviously higher in the evolutionary ladder) or another species. Evolution, in my humble opinion based on my a priori belief in God and supported by creation physicists and scientists, not adequate to explain how single cells organisms could have evolved into my adorable grandson. Viruses that acquire the capability to infect humans are still viruses. As an adaptation, is it beneficial to kill off your host?
