|Did God create the world in seven days, or do you believe in the theory of evolution?
No one "created" the world. Yes I do believe in evolution.
I believe in the theory of evolution, but I do feel that it very possible there is a connection between God creating the world in "seven days" and evolution.
There is "That Which Is." How many days? Depends on the length of a day and the skill of "That Which Is" in designing evolutionary processes.
I don't see God and evolution as mutually exclusive. Evolution and the whole geological process of world creating are facts. We can see them at work in our world today. I think it is possible that God, or some higher organizing power could have initiated the process that resulted in our would and our species. However the process of creating utilized, and still utilizes the laws of evolution. The whole seven day thing is a method of explaining a very complex process to people who didn't understand.
I don't "believe" in the theory of evolution any more than I "believe" that the Earth goes round the sun and not the other way around. It is not a belief, it is an accepted fact. My advice for creationists: Evolution happened, get over it.
At the time the Bible was written they thought the earth was flat, so I take no stock in anything else written about the physical properties of the universe from that time, or any miracles for that matter.
I do believe God created everything, evolution couldn't have so wonderful and detailed.
I Strongly believe in theory of evolution
I don't believe in either. We have no idea what happened, so why do we keep trying to make up an answer? People are very uncomfortable with the feeling of "I don't know!" We don't know, why can't we just leave it at that? The world is here. When we die, the world will end. What comes after that is a mystery.
Certainly in evolution.If you have an explanation with a sound scientific basis then why ask for a "supernatural" answer??
God says he created the world in seven days. Why would I believe a lesser being who contradicts that?
I believe the world was intelligently designed, though not in the way most were told in Sunday School. I also believe evolution was part and parcel of that creation.
The Bible oldest books may be a few thousand years old. No one knows for sure when Genesis was written. We also estimate the Earth to be over 4 billion years old. The knowledge that had been gained about our existence has changed significantly over time. Charles Darwin was born 200 years ago and began developing his thoughts on evolution around 1850. How much more knowledge did he have over those who wrote the book of Genesis? Read the order of creation in Genesis. How far off are the writers to the theories of evolution that have since developed? I argue that those people who wrote Genesis did a fairly good job of describing evolution without calling it evolution. Did they say "a day" because it fit better in their writings? I believe that God does exist and does create to this day. For me, the more that science "uncovers," the more that I believe a God must be creating. To me, science and religion really work together rather than as separate entities. So what I believe is that the Bible, in Genesis, tries to explain in a "primitive" manner the science we have since to discover.
I believe neither.
