    Not solely. I believe God created the world and evolution is but a tool used by God.

    Darwin himself noted that the human eye is good evidence against evolution and said that if a solution was not found within a few decades, he retracts his theory. The eye could not have evolved gradually over time. All of the various complex components must work together exactly in order for the eye to function. If a mutation would have arisen with a partial eye, it would have just been dead weight, an evolutionary disadvantage, and never survived to evolve further. It is infinitely improbable that something as complex as the eye simply mutated into existance all at once. We know that the universe must have had a begining because it is continuously expanding. Whatever the beggining was, it defied one of the most basic rules of nature, that things can only be made out of pre-existing material. Once we say that the beggining of the universe broke the laws of nature, why not say that things came into existance already formed?

    In fact biological evolution does occur-it isn't a matter of conjecture so those who state that it doesn't occur only do so out of bigotry or ignorance. The evidence comes from a complete fossil record for hundreds of species-that's right not a missing link in sight and there are countless examples of transitional fossils. Then there are the physiological similarities between species for example specific enzyme deficiencies in man and primates preventing them synthesising vitamin c proving a shared ancestry, and above all else it has been observed occuring in laboratories. Micro-evolution over eons of time equals macro-evolution.

    Evolution is the most advanced theory concerning the physical reality. But how can I believe that man comes from dust, that raw matter miraculously turns into an organic thing, and the ape can build an ever-advancing civilization? Therefore, in my learning, I come to believe the following wisdom:

    "The meditative faculty is akin to the mirror; if you put it before earthly objects it will reflect them. Therefore if the spirit of man is contemplating earthly subjects he will be informed of these.

    But if you turn the mirror of your spirits heavenwards, the heavenly constellations and the rays of the Sun of Reality will be reflected in your hearts, and the virtues of the Kingdom will be obtained.

    Therefore let us keep this faculty rightly directed -- turning it to the heavenly Sun and not to earthly objects -- so that we may discover the secrets of the Kingdom, and comprehend the allegories of the Bible and the mysteries of the spirit.

    May we indeed become mirrors reflecting the heavenly realities, and may we become so pure as to reflect the stars of heaven."

    (Abdu'l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 175)

    NO i don't believe in evolution. The first words in the bible are "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." -Genesis 1:1

    If evolution was true then these words wouldn't be in the bible. Then why in the world are monkeys still turning into humans.oh wait their not! Another way to prove its not true. But if you want to answer this for yourself go to the bible it is the only book that was made for the past and is made for now. The only true source of information.

    Yes. Mostly because, ever since I was a little boy, I was told that this was the only truth, the only way to salvatio.......oh hey, wait a sec, my bad. I was thinking of religion....

    Yeah, I "beleive" in evolution. Why? Mostly because it is a real concept (helps to be real if Im gonna beleive it) and it has also been proven, despite the lies Christians tell themselves.

    Source(s): Every time science has provide a fundie like Gary with a transitional fossil, Gary and his people ask "Where is the transitional fossil for this fossil?" If provided, they will again ask for yet another transitional fossil. Every time we fill a gap, it creates two new gaps on either side. Terrible argument Gary.

    I believe that is how this earth got started,

    But think about it, all those particles floating around in the nothingness that created the big bang, How did those particles get there? some one or something had to put the factors together for evolution to start.

    It isn't something you believe or disbelieve. It is a fact you accept or you don't. Living organisms evolve. You can question the whole we started from amoeba and somehow ended up as humans idea if you like, as that does not have any definitive evidence, but it is a fact that living organisms evolve.

    Evolution is filled with holes,

    So is the big bang theory.

    So is the gap theory.

    God spoke everything into existence, He made them according to their kind. Nuff said.

    good argument Gary

    Yes... to explain my reasoning just look at all that has happened through history, the cavemen, are we cavemen? No!!... that is why I believe.....who wouldn't.....just in case you get what I'm trying to say I'll explain it again. I belive because mankind has already experianced evolution.
