I continue to be amazed and disappointed by letters from those who want to discuss creationism and evolution as opposite ends of the spectrum, one against the other.
The evidence to support evolution is as strong as the evidence available for any area of scientific study. To say, however, that either creation or evolution must hold the answers to life as we know it, or that evolution does not qualify as science totally misses the point.
The first mistake is assuming that the Bible reveals scientific truth. Most Christians I know believe the Bible is a sacred text inspired by God designed for the salvation of humankind, not a science reference.
Believing in the science behind evolution does not in itself contradict creation. It does, however, create an unnecessary competition between evolution and religion that fosters denial and disregard of scientific principles and information.
Never miss a local story.
Believing that Earth is only 6,000 years old and that dinosaurs and humans roamed Earth during the same time periods are examples. Biblical stories must be understood in the context for which they were written. Evolution must also be understood as well-respected science.
When your religion is the basis for determining the science you accept, it may be time to find a new religion.
