You cannot be a christian and accept the theory of Evolution because the Bible says that God created everything in seven literal days.
8Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it
If the theory of Evolution is really true, why are there so many missing intermediate fossils in the fossil record. There are literally millions of missing fossils that logically should be abundant, but just aren't found. For those who are reading this and don't know what an intermediate fossil is, let me give an example.
In the English alphabet, we have the letters a, b, c, d......all the way to the letter z. In the fossil record, we have fossil "a" and fossil "z", but all the fossils in between are just not found anywhere. These are the intermediate fossils. If lets say a whale evolved into a zebra over millions of years, there should be millions upon millions of fossils that show how the whale evolved and changed over that time period.
Here are some quotes: (with there references)
"A persistent problem in evolutionary biology has been the absense of intermediate forms in the fossil record.
...Typically, the record consists of successive ancestor-descendant lineages, morphologically invariant through time and unconnected by intermediates."
(Williamson, P.G.,Paleontological Documentation of Speciation in Cenazoic Molluscs from Turkana Basin, 1982, p.163)
"The number of intermediate variaties, which have formerly existed must be truly enormous. Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps is the most obvious and serious objection which can be urged against the theory."
(Darwin, Charles, Origin of Species, 6th edition, 1902 p.341-342)
"Given that evolution, according to Darwin, was in a continual state of motion... it followed logically that the fossil record should be rife with examples of transitional forms leading from the less to more evolved...Instead of filling the gaps in the fossil record with so-called missing links, most palaeontologists found themselves facing a situation in which there were only gaps in the fossil record, with no evidence of transformational intermediates between documented fossil species."
(Schwartz, Jeffrey H., Sudden Origins, 1999, p.89)
[The Evolution theory]"Is still, as it was in Darwin's time, a highly speculative hypothesis entirely without direct factual support and very far from that self evident axiom some of its more aggressive advocates would have us believe"
(Australian molecular biologist, medical doctor and agnostic, Michael Denton; Evolution: A theory in Crisis, 1986, p.77)
Another thing is that if you look at the fossil record, apparently all the light organisms are found near the top of the soil, and all the heavy or large fossils are deep under ground. Paleontologists say that this is because the organisms at the bottom (the heavy fossils) existed at a more prehistoric time (longer ago) than the ones near the top. However this is just how animals flout. If there was a worldwide cataclysmic flood like the great flood mentioned in the book of Genesis, the heavier organisms, like the molluscs and dinosaurs would've sinked to the bottom, and the lighter organisms would've flouted near the top, and so they would've fossilized.
There are about six different types of evolution. You get Cosmic Evolution, Stellar and Planetary Evolution, Chemical Evolution, Organic Evolution, Macro-Evolution, and Micro-Evolution. Out of all these, only Micro-Evolution or Natural Selection can actually be proven. For the rest of them to be fact, you need to have faith just like you need faith to believe in God.
