Future scientists will prove today's scientists wrong. It has always happened.

Exactly.

You know what one thing has stood up through about 300 years of science? Knowing that creationism (along with many other core facets of the bible) are false.

So what, exactly, was your point.

My point is that man's science changes constantly, but God's Word remains the truth.

Oh but it's not the truth. Creating the world in six days, creating humans, the great flood...etc. None of that actually happened, as science has proven it.

To which of "God's words" are you referring? The Bible, which was cleverly (and politically) assembled by Constantine? Or the Arabic version, or one of the others?

Seems to me that these texts were actually written by men, who had their own agenda.

Do you have a copy that was actually written by God? If so, please share it.

All this welfare and food stamps is contrary to what evolution would have -- those who are incapable of getting food -- well nature would take it's course on them.
Add yet another one who:
*Profoundly misunderstands evolution, and
*Thinks it (or, at least, his profound misunderstanding of it) is a model for societal behavior

Just curious here ... Do you consider yourself a Christian?

As a Democratic Christian - I wish there was a way to reconcile creationism and evolution. Believe me, people are NOT going to respond kindly when you continue to tell them that the Bible is FOS. I don't necessarily think that Democrats should trample so hard down this particular path.

I believe in God - but I have a hard time with the dinosaurs and how/when we were created.

Believing that parents don't have a right to teach their kids their belief system is a dangerous thought process and no different that the left screaming that conservatives are trying to tell them how to think and live. Why do you think so many parents are homeschooling in this country? Because the government, by way of the public government schools, is trying to usurp their rights as parents.

BTW, for all of you folks who are so sure of a scientific theory that has never been proven, can I just ask, if humans evolved from apes, then why are there still apes on this planet? Why did only some of the apes "evolve"? No one ever seems to be able to answer that, along with a whole lot of other questions that pop up when one tries to prove evolution.

Evolution: just another tired excuse to try to disprove there is a Creator so that there is no absolute standard of right and wrong.
I completely agree with you until you asked your question about evolution. Evolution says humans came from a common ape ancestor that would have been a different species than the apes we have today. My question is why is so much stock put in whether somebody believes in evolution? Unless you are in biology or geology it really doesn't matter whether we came from apes or God. The only reason it matters is so liberals can continue to marginalize Christianity and paint people of faith as a bunch of mental cases.
