“...woe be to those that expose the weakness of evolution theory.”

Not at all—the theory of evolution has changed considerably since it was first put forth. CD probably would not recognize it today.

Your beef is that there is resistance to replacing scientific theory with faith. There is no science in creationism, yet evolution and Christianity are perfectly compatible.

Fortunately, creationism is out of the classroom. It’s hard to believe that we’re still living the Scopes trial.

Your assumption about my “beef” is incorrect. My problem is that the theory of evolution is TAUGHT as fact and that it is not challenged with critical thought or contrary facts presented in the classroom.

HUH?

So you’re saying that Christianity and Evolution are “compatible”. That comes from where??? So are you saying the Old Testament is invalid, thus rendering the New Testament the only “true” Christian scripture... if that’s so then the New Testament has no legs to stand on because it is filled with references to the Old Testament. Even Jesus said He was not here to do away with the law (Old Testament Law) but to fulfill it. He wasn’t so quick to throw it out. The Old Testament by definition discounts Evolution and specifically chronicles creation. So I guess I’m asking where anything in Christian doctrine taught by either the disciples or Jesus Himself is found to be remotely supportive of evolution?

Please don’t start the allegory/myth thing with me. If it’s all a myth and, as you believe, evolution is true then Christianity cannot possibly support evolution. That would be the ultimate paradox.

Now if you’re saying neither the New or Old Testament are valid and Jesus was a myth as well then your premise that Christianity and evolution are compatible (considering your faith in evolution as “reality”) is beyond silly.

Are you followin’ me camera guy?
