I believe the evidence, and because I’m a Christian, I believe Scripture, which in many many many ways contradicts the theory of evolution. Someone who believes in Jesus can’t believe in evolution — what He believed and spoke directly contradicts the theory.
I want you to back that claim up. Nothing Jesus said not one thing was anti-evolution nor did anything he said contradict evolutionary science. In fact If anything Jesus told his followers to view the Old testament for what it was a story and that he was here on Earth to replace those stories with his word and his law.
So lets get cracking and post what Jesus had to say on this subject. Of course you will come up lacking because you want to speak for Jesus rather than listen to what he said.
“Someone who believes in Jesus cant believe in evolution”
That is a complete lie, and I am sure that you know it isn’t true. I believe in Jesus and in evolution. What I don’t believe is that one translation of the Bible is exact, and that every word has only one possible meaning.
Genesis 12:10, Genesis 20, and Genesis 26 are all the same story about Abraham and Abimlech. They contain different information about the story, and appear to contradict each other. A little history explains the reasons for this very clearly. Different writers with different purposes. They all send the same basic message, therefore they contain biblical truth.
Maybe you don’t agree, which is your perogative. I am not God, so I am not qualified to judge the truth of your beliefs. I will, however, defend mine from your criticism. The Jesus that I believe in suffered and died so that my sins would be forgiven. This would certainly include a belief in evolution, if it was a sin (which I doubt that it is). Your claim that one cannot believe in Jesus and evolution is only that...Your claim. It has nothing to do with God or Jesus or forgiveness or Christianity. It is only your narrow and exclusive interpretation of the Bible.
“I believe the evidence, and because Im a Christian, I believe Scripture, which in many many many ways contradicts the theory of evolution. Someone who believes in Jesus cant believe in evolution what He believed and spoke directly contradicts the theory.”
I agree completely. In fact, people make me really mad when I tell them my theory and they laugh at me. Here’s my theory. People have told me it is impossible for someone to sneak into my room at night, leaving no evidence whatsoever of breaking and entering, and reach under my pillow, remove the tooth I lost, replace it with some cash, and then leave just as quietly as she entered. I don’t care what they say, because I was once told by people I trust completely (my parents) that there really is a Tooth Fairy. So I know how you feel — I say we just let those phony junk science types tell their lies all they want. No pointy headed intellectuals are going to talk me out of my leap of faith in the Tooth Fairy.
Then they clock the amount of time a certain amount of water takes to erode a certain amount of limestone.
They then transpose that to the Grand Canyon and calculate the amount of time it would have taken for water to erode such a massive landscape (scientific estimates around 6 million years), would that in any way challenge your belief that the Earth is 6,000 years old?
“Someone who believes in Jesus cant believe in evolution what He believed and spoke directly contradicts the theory”
You are dead wrong.
