science has been playing catch-up to the Bible for 1000's of years. While most large civilizations were dying of disease by reason of their lack of knowledge about hygiene, Bible followers were protected by the only recently (less than 110 years) scientific discovery of micro-organisms that cause fatal illness.
Yes, Bible believers knew millenia before science to bury the fecal waste. The theory of evolution has never answered the huge gap of intelligence between humans and all other animals.
While much of science has found the reason for why many things work, the logic of the pursuit of life by chance is quite astonishingly circular. How so? The only reason that any scientist continues to pursue this one track endeavor is by means of their base belief that it "had to be accidental" because there can not be a creator. This is quite strange to many people because, they are so determined to prove that chance is the creator.
Yes, it is very likely that science saying that there were life forms millions of years ago is true. This is in harmony with the Bible. The Bible record clearly says that in the figurative 'days' of creation, that all other life forms were created by man.
And while many of us know and do not argue that life will adapt to the environment where they come to live, we also know that there is no evidence of any animal, ever changing into anything, but an adapted version of that animal family.
We see this in the deliberate breeding of dogs. Humans have been intentionally breeding dogs for certain characteristics since the dawn of written history, yet by all their deliberate intervention, we still have nothing but a dog.
Also, what it really quite amazing, is that written history, started, form the point of the Bible's claims of human creation.
With absolutely no interim of a 'developing' of writing, it seems quite odd that people will continue to believe in the theory of humans evolving from lower lifeforms.
Evolution, as I was taught was survival of the fittest. Meaning, only animals with strong survival skills, continued down the evolutionary chain.
Yet we humans have within our makeup, so much beyond what is necessary for our survival. Music, invention, Art, all are unnecessary for our survival, yet we pursue these and other activities that defy evolution.
I think that as we go along, science, is really going to go full circle and arrive at the truth. That life was created.
You know, the real reason for the upsurge in those that submit to evolution, is in fact a result of persistant conditioning.
Just as the person of false religion has become enslaved to his delusion, so it goes with any person who has allowed themself to be over awed by another's domination.
Just to make an off topic analogy, today in the US, the population is being conditioned to accept nationalized healthcare. The politicians are using their favorite propaganda tool. Children. They are persistantly repeating the mantra, that every child has the 'right' to medical insurance. And once the polls show that they have succeeded in their training of the public, they will then stage the vote, and foist upon the American People, the biggest fleecing of the taxpayers since the Social Security Act.
