>>Human Evolution is one of the most vile and disgusting lies I have ever had to endure on this earth. The arrogant stupidity of these simpletons makes me both sadden and angry. They are so obsessed with their ridiculous hatred towards creation science that they will believe absolutely any child's fairy tale that opposes creation so they can live their life happy and Godless.<<

The problem with any explanation other than evolution is that we can date fossils and bones and we can see the development as more recent remains get closer and closer to modern humans.

And then molecules, genes and DNA were discovered and matched conclusions that had been drawn from the fossils.

Now, the hostility from a minority of scientists (and frankly from a minority of Christians) is a problem and does poison the well somewhat.

But its best to look beyond the hate from both sides and stick to what we can observe. All the physical evidence points to life developing from simpler organisms into more complex ones and the personal experience with God that millions of Christians have experienced show (at least to those who are open to the experience) that God is real and loves us.

I know its hard to reconcile - I recently posted a vanity Vanity - question for creationists from a Christian who believes in evolution where I asked creationists what it would mean if evidence were found that convinced them of evolution - a substantial portion said it would effect their faith in other ways.

With those kind of stakes I understand that this is an uphill path to reconciliation.

"With those kind of stakes I understand that this is an uphill path to reconciliation."

The tone of your post was much appreciated. It is debatable whether bones can be accurately dated or not (see post about Dinosaur bones with soft tissue), so this is hardly proof of Human Evolution. Furthermore, the bones that are being examined could very well be animal bones that were pieced together and have nothing to do with Evolution whatsoever.

To me it all boils down to Adam vs animal. In the Bible God said Adam, so that is where my belief will stay. Choose to believe who you will, but if you are a Christian, I advise you to reconsider your position on Human Evolution. God said Adam not animal.
