I do believe the Bible. Blind faith, naw, I am lead by the greatest of them all.

Even scientiest are now finding the "one" link in the human chain plausable.

"Mitochondrial Eve:
In the field of human genetics, Mitochondrial Eve refers to the matrilineal "MRCA" (most recent common ancestor). In other words, she was the woman from whom all living humans today descend, on their mother's side, and through the mothers of those mothers and so on, back until all lines converge on one person. Because all mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is generally passed from mother to offspring without recombination, all mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in every living person is directly descended from hers by definition. Mitochondrial Eve is the female counterpart of Y-chromosomal Adam, the patrilineal most recent common ancestor, although they lived thousands of years apart.

Each ancestor (of people now living) in the line back to the matrilineal MRCA had female contemporaries such as sisters, female cousins, etc. and some of these female contemporaries may have descendants living now (with one or more males in their descendancy line). But none of the female contemporaries of the "Mitochondrial Eve" has descendants living now in an unbroken female line.

Mitochondrial Eve is estimated to have lived around 200,000 years ago,[2] most likely in East Africa,[3] when Homo sapiens sapiens ("anatomically modern humans") were developing as a population distinct from other human sub-species.

Mitochondrial Eve lived much earlier than the out of Africa migration that is thought to have occurred between 95,000 to 45,000 BP.[4] The dating for 'Eve' was a blow to the multiregional hypothesis, and a boost to the hypothesis that modern humans originated relatively recently in Africa and spread from there, replacing more "archaic" human populations such as Neanderthals. As a result, the latter hypothesis is now the dominant one."
Mitochondrial Eve - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


What seems to throw so many off is that G_d created ALL in 7 days. Did any ever stop, think, and ask, what is G_d's times? In 2Pe 3:8 it states:
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. HIS timing is different than ours and to try to understand G_d is impossible for us.

I know that sounds like a cop-out, we can't understand G_d, to explain away the unexplainable but seriously, how can mere man ever hope to explain everything in the Bible or G_d, after all, HE created ALL

That is what I believe to so. If you study the Edgar Cayce phenomenon A lot of things become much clearer. Not perfectly clear but one gets a much better understanding how humanity came about.

To strongly agree one way or another is stupid. Think for yourselves, ask questions, and then you will realize there are a lot of things that unexplainable such as pyramids, earthen works only seen from the sky, underwater architectures, etc.

"How do we know its not both creationism and evolution. It could be a combination of both."

Can one walk, and sit at rest the same time? Can one tell the truth, and yet a lie simultaneously? Can one sleep and remain awake? Can one die, and yet live? Can one win, but lose, or lose but win?

Can one believe and not believe? Can one create, and evolve simultaneously?

Evolution might be a tool used in creation, but that's as far as I'll go.

In the creation account in Genesis, God "Spoke" and created the heaven and the earth, separated the seas from the lands, brought forth the animals, spoke light and dark, and the signs of the seasons...It is that God spoke these things.

But with man, God, "...formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." Genesis 2:7.

God spoke and said, "Let us make man" (Gen 1:26). But in the doing of it, God put His own hand to work. He didn't 'speak' man of the dust of the ground, He FORMED man of the dust of the ground.

In no other instance can we find God actually, by craft and artisanship, by design and purpose, FORMING a living being.

As to evolution, those things He spoke into existence may well have evolved. I've no quarrel with that. But man? No sir...God FORMED man, and BREATHED into his nostrils the breath of life, and in that God's breath is the spirit of life, the inevitable result was man...who does not evolve.

In fact, looking at the world around us, it's pretty doggoned evident that unregenerated man has 'DEvolved', and continues to do so.

So much more the need then, that man come to know God, as a species dedicated toward life in God and God's eternal purpose.

Good shootin', Ya'll,

Shotgun Bill

Evolution is FACT. I know its much easier to just attribute everything to the will of god, but you are sorely mistaken. You know what will happen to non believers at the "rapture"? Nothing, just like the dilusionsed believers.

Rightwing Jesus freaks aren't the only one with guns.

John 8:43-47
(43) Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. (44) You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. (45) But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. (46) Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? (47) He who is of God hears God"s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God."

"Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind. In that case, nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking. It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen, for physical or chemical reasons, to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me, as a by-product, the sensation I call thought. But, if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? It's like upsetting a milk jug and hoping that the way it splashes itself will give you a map of London. But if I can't trust my own thinking, of course I can't trust the arguments leading to atheism, and therefore have no reason to be an atheist, or anything else. Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God." - C.S. Lewis

A simple question--where is there any evidence of man evolving from one celled critters? Where is there any forms of half birds /etc. evolving today? Surely there must be some examples in that process somewhere.

The first feathered winged dinosaur had black feathers

Here ya go. Animals evolve through adaptation. Over time, not in the snap of a finger.

Here's a link to animal adaptations.

Honestly am not. Those are the words spoken by Jesus to those who scoffed at his ministry. The religious leaders berated Him and tried to corner Him but to no avail. He simply told them that they could not understand spiritual things because they were not "God's children but swayed by the "dark side"--lol.
I did not mean to hurt anyone's feelings--just posted some wise words.
