~~What about the accepted theory of evolution?~~
*** Accepted by whom? ***

Ah, good ole evolution. Well here's one thing about that, to wit; .i/e.: When I see something as beautiful as this: Cheetahs on the Edge — Director's Cut [YouTube 7:07], I have a hard time believing they came from ('evolved') some 'salamander that crawled out of the sea x? millions of years ago.

Genesis: The Beginning, 24-25:
And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
When I watch that I see God's work in every part of that beautiful animal, not Darwin's theory. Oh, and Man came next:
Genesis 26-28:
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
Note: I'm not some Luddite. I believe in 'Science', it was and is my career. I also believe that the 'Big Bang' happened. It's just that 'someone' (God) had to do the initial 'banging', even with String, or Membrane Theory. And that Big Bang doesn't contradict with Genesis either - 'Let There Be Light'. ('Science' and God are not mutually exclusive)

Through the years I have 'evolved' my thinking as to who are really the Luddites. The evolution community are in absolute opposition to the allowance of God inside their houses of worship, public education. They jeer and sneer at the literal WORD Written.

Now having said the above, It is also Written that when the children of God obey and follow Him, He will not leave or forsake them. So how did it come to be that 'young' earth creationists got the boot out of the public square IF they were following the WORD?

I do not believe the WORD or the literal evidence discovered all across this earth demonstrates this earth is a mere 6,000 years old. I can find no issue or contradiction from the WORD and what unbiased science demonstrates.

God had Peter tell us how God keeps time. A day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as a day. Sure seem simple enough to me. Yet by the days of Noah, flesh man had turned their backs so much so that God told Moses to write Genesis 6:6 And it repented the LORD that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.

Up to the days of Noah, Moses wrote that Methuselah lived 969 years, not quite one day with the LORD. Then because of the ways of man God placed a time limit on the length of time flesh would live to max 120 years.

Now as to the so called 'Big Bang'. I do not know IF that aptly describes Genesis 1:1. I do read Genesis 1:2 as having several different sources causing a 'big bang', as it is describing the casting down - overthrow of the first rebel. And all flesh life ceased to exist and this earth was for all practical purposes 'dead'. But the sons of God as called in Genesis 6 were still alive because they were not in flesh bodies, but, as described 'breath of life' which means soul.

I do not believe there is a soul/spirit intellect manufacturing plant in heaven where in at the fertilization of every human egg a new soul gets made. I believe that all souls were created at the same time. And because of the first rebel this 'flesh' age was set in motion to give each and every individual soul created the opportunity to take this flesh journey. The reason why Christ told Nicodemus in John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, :Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born *from above* (yes I know the word 'again' got place here but is is not correct) he cannot see the kingdom of God."

All those in the evolution community rightfully admit they cannot see let alone test or replicate the soul, but, at the same time they pretend the soul/spirit intellect has no relationship to the flesh body that returns to the dust.

Add a dabb of religious acceptance in the mythology of TOE and next thing these evolutionists are claiming is TOE is from God because the church said so.
