I can’t find the part about ‘how’ He created, all I can find is *that He created.

For me it is not important *how He created.....I look to science for those facts.

Faith requires us to not need scientific proof, while science requires that we do not just believe. Believing is for religion, fact is for science. Religion gets messed up when facts are needed for faith and science gets messed up when belief is held too closely in contradiction with facts.

I do not believe that God gave us our ability to learn about the physical universe to confound us, but rather He gave us the ability to learn so we could serve Him better. Knowledge of the physical universe in no way removes us from God, it brings us closer because we learn how great He is.

The very meaning of faith rejects the need for hard physical facts. It means to trust without proof.

“I look to science for those facts.”

Science isn’t a dissemination of facts. It’s a process for arriving at facts. The scientific process can’t prove origins because origins are unobservable.

“Knowledge of the physical universe in no way removes us from God, it brings us closer because we learn how great He is.”

If knowledge of the physical universe shows God to be a liar. I don’t want to have anything to do with that God. God says, in His Book, for by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin... Old earth theory, belief, faith shows us that death occurred before men were created so death isn’t the result of sin. It’s just natural. God is a liar for this reason and others if your science, belief, faith is true.
