For those who say the we are just 2% different from apes. Think about this; with a few basic ingredients a cook can create hundreds even thousands of different meals. So just because we are simular to animal doesnt mean we evoled from them.
Evolution does not explain anything! It only pushes the question far back.
Q: Where did man come from?
Q: Where did apes come from?
A: Ape-like creatures?
Q: And those?
And so it goes. But How did the first living thing came about?
Scientific fact: Life comes from life. Unless we use Dark-age logic such as rats can come from old rags.
And Where did all matter come from?
It like a man saying i created this chair from nothing. How? Well I made the chair, from wood i cut from a tree, which i grew from a seed.
Where did the seed come from. Oh its too small must of been here forever.
If evolation 'created' everything then live, earth and the universe would be a lot more random. I group of animals would of evoled without eyes and ears and noses but would have other senses.
The Bible clears says the God made animals according to there "kinds". So today we have many kinds of dogs. But they are all dogs. They have not changed.
You say that evolation is like a word puzzle. But in fact when we look at creation, they 'words' havent changed maybe the font and colour and size. But word is still WORD.
A theory is not a fact. And still has to be proven before it is considered a fact. saying evolation "has moved from mere hypothesis to theory" is like saying the answer has 'moved' from being between 1 and 100000 to beeing between 10 to 95125.
Changes to happen in animals, colouring etc... even some mutation, frog growing a extra pair of legs. Some take this to prove evolation. But infact 99.99% of all mutation are harmful in some way to the animal. And any changes in colour etc, does not constitute a new type of animal. It hard to see how these changes and mutations could ever bring about the eye, or anything else.
The independence we see today could not have evole a minute step at a time. It must of had an intelligent designer and creator.
Does anyone realy understands evolation? No. Most people follow it blindly because 'thats what intellectual ones beleive.' or because they dont want to beleive in God.
One creator, one purpose is alot better than millions, even billions of dice rolls. They say in medical school, one disease or problem that explains the conditions is better than two more. I wonder using that logic which is easier to beleive in.
There is no proof of evolution. If there was then it would be taught as a fact not a theory. The universe is so order and arrange that it could not have come about by chance.
It takes great faith it beleive in evolution then to beleive in God.
