Is Evolution an evil word to Christians?
- QuestionerLv 76 months ago
The word simply means "change over time" and no one has a problem with that.
It depends on what kind of "evolution" you are referring to:
-Cosmic evolution (the Big Bang)—including things like galactic, stellar, and planetary evolution.
-Chemical evolution (or Abiogenesis)—life from non-life.
-Biological evolution (Darwinism)—universal common descent through mutation and natural selection.
-Or minor changes within individual species that occur over short periods of time (sometimes called micro-evolution)—which isn't controversial at all.
Most of the time, people just give examples of natural selection or genetic drift and assume it points to undirected microbes-to-man evolution. Even young-earth creationists believe in natural selection and "speciation." Take a look at these:

Considering that for over fifty years most of us have accepted evolution as a part of God's design, that's a really ignorant question.Source(s): Greek Orthodox Christian

Reality freaks them out.
It's why they need fantasies.

No. Most Christians accept science and evolution as part of science because the evidence for it is overwhelming. All the mainstream Christian churches accept evolution. It isn't the Christians who reject science but the Old Testament Fundamentalists, the Biblical literalists, who do. In most western countries they are a small minority but there is a plethora of them in the USA because of low education standards.
