Good grief!...Why don't you tell us. This is a forum, not a quiz show.

I am trying to be open minded with Christians who believe evolution and Christianity can co-exist. I am open for discussion. Many were will but when I asked that simple question. I get air.

Okay, I already posited that Man was created in God's image. I can't tell you where, but that statement IS in the Bible. Probably Genesis.

No one ever said what God looked like.

I haven't said anything, stated no opinion, merely asked a question.

I asked if evolution is real then how can a Christian justify death and sin? How does death and sin enter and why do we die?

Reformed.. in the end you are looking to the bible for answers to questions where the answers are already known.

For instance, I looked in the Bible to tell me about cars. I know it had to be in there because I see people driving cars all day. I looked.. nothing about cars. Thus my conclusion was that cars don't really exist.

To test my theory I was going sit down in the middle of the interstate. I should be safe since the bible never mentions cars (thus they can't be real). Is this a good idea for me?

The proper answer is "no stupid. we know cars are real. we can observe them"

Just like we can observe evolution taking place at a micro level.

And just in case you missed it:

The truth of the narrative doesn't depend on historical facuality
