Correct me if I am wrong...Darwin's basic idea was Survival of the Fittest. That is, if by random variation, someone comes along that is better suited to survival, they will live to breed, and that trait will be reinforced in the species. That is, if women fancy taller men because they remind them of husbands who might be better qualified by nature to protect them, they will be the ones to get married and have children, producing, generally taller offspring. This much, I can believe. Did Darwin himself promote the "man from ape" idea?

My chief complaint against those who use Evolution as a religion, is that they refuse to acknowledge Evolution as a theory, instead taking it as given Law. The popular notion of the theory of evolution may explain one set of facts and how they relate. If other facts threaten the Theory, by scientific method, it is the Theory that should change, not the facts ignored.

I myself am a Big Long Creation kind of guy...I begin at God Said Let There Be Big Bang, and figure God may have arrived at man however He chose over a million years if He wanted. But I vigorously spit at those who try to apply Surival of the Fittest into a framework that tries to refure God's hand in our crafting. It's like saying that Order could of itself flow out of Chaos, or like someone finding an equisite Swiss cuckoo clock sitting on a stone in the jungle and assuming that the clock must just have created itself.

Evolutionary theory has changed drastically over the years.

or like someone finding an equisite Swiss cuckoo clock sitting on a stone in the jungle and assuming that the clock must just have created itself.

The problem here is that you are taking something that you recognize, that you know for a fact must be made, and extrapolating that way too far into things that many only believe must be made.

That’s pretty much my opinion as well. God created man, but how he went about doing so is not something I feel qualified to speak to.
