>Has it ever occurred to you that since NONE of us was present to observe when "it" all began, all we have is conjecture? We are all operating by faith in some way. You choose to believe there is no Creator, therefore no meaning for life, no "higher power" to answer to at the end of your life.
Millions of people all around the world beleive in God, are religious, and have no trouble reconciling this faith with
the scientific theory of evolution and other scientific principles.
> That is why you fight so hard for what even the staunchest supporters can still only call a theory and not fact.
Playing word games with "theory" and "fact" just makes your point seem superficial and silly. A theory is not a _guess_. It's a model of the way things work that is borne out by evidence. Technology based on things that are "just theories" surrounds you.
>There is still no observable occurrence of a transmutation on record, anywhere, anytime.
I have no idea what this means.
I am speaking of the totally atheistic view that there is no God, Creator, or Designer. Because most thinking people question the how and why do we exist, Evolution becomes their answer.
As a Christian, I believe in the Creator God. That "all things were made by him and for him and without him was not anything made that was made."
Does evolution fit into my belief system? That depends. If we're talking about mutations within species, then of course. I have a Ragdoll breed of cat. She has characteristics that were developed over years of selective breeding that distinguish her from other breeds. Do I believe in transmutation of species, the central tenet of Darwinian Evolution that tries to explain a common lifeform that all life evolved from over millions of years? Then, no, I don't. The fossil record that, if true, should have shown millions or billions of transmutated species (i.e., 90% ape 10% human, 50% ape 50% human, etc.) is non-existent and is, in truth, and embarrassment.
