A big problem is scale. The human brain can't visualize what can happen in 10,000 years, much less 10 million. Evolution is very slow and very fluid. Even though we have names for animals of the past, they were all just a sample along a chain of ever-changing creatures. Nothing was ever really a "final product", unless it became extinct. It`s just how our brains are wired; we like things in neat little labeled boxes.

Ultimately, I believe that the belief in God just serves to comfort us when we ask questions to which we may never know the answers. It`s all rationalization. It`s much easier to come to grips with death when you think that there was a meaning behind it. It`s the same reasoning behind conspiracy theories.

But if you decide to quote the Bible and take things literally, don`t expect me to not call you out for cherrypicking the parts that serve your argument. In that case I better not catch you wearing any polyester blends. (Leviticus 19:19)

Watch Cosmos, with Neil Degrasse Tyson. He explains evolution in a clear rational.

I would say more, but there are too many problems with this debate for me to tackle in 1000 characters or less.

Dracyla, you're right. All of it could be made up bullcrap. But that still doesn`t make it incompatible with science, unless you mistakenly think the Bible is intended to be a scientific textbook instead of a book showing who God is (as in, Creationists). I don`t think science disproves anything in the Bible, because I don`t think the point of the Bible IS to be a literal telling of the exact timeline, or an exact telling of the physical science manner in which the world was created. So to me there is no circular logic involved. Maybe I misunderstand your point, though.

"This isn't a Christian thing. It`s a conspiracy nut thing. Most Christians believe that evolution is the way it happened. Christianity and science are not incompatible."

Yes, it is. Circular logic is strong until any part of it can be disproved.

if science disproves teachings of the bible, then Christians must accept that the bible is either not wholly correct, or at least open to an extremely `liberal` (literal, not political definition of the word) interpretation.

There is no guide to what parts are really true and what parts are made up bull crap. Therefore, any and all of it could be a falsehood or open to liberal interpretation.
