Why does someone prefer the language of their parents as opposed to another language? People are raised to believe it or must buy into it in order to get the rest of what they want out of the bible. I only hope the next Einstein comes a secular family, or at least a more rational, open minded religious family.
I woke up early this morning thinking about this. After taking classes and learning all about the evolution theory, etc... ( and drilling the teachers with questions and trying to understand it all) ... It never made sense to me. Takes a whole heck of a lot of blind faith to believe in evolution.
Creation is true; evolution is a story, it is what some people want to be true to the extent of having other humans verifying the theory of evolution to be fact, when God is the one they need to verify creation for them. I am sorry for those who can not accept Gods word as the truth, that is just the way things are.
Only utterly misappropriating scripture would place it at odds with the scientific method. There is no conflict over the pursuit of unfolding truth, which both the Bible and the scientific method are in pursuit of. The conflict arises between what is seen as a matter of fact and a matter of faith where "evidence" is concerned. The truth is both an acceptance of what we can see and a faith in the ever unfolding mystery of what we can't. We have only imagined a conflict out of the hardness of our own hearts, not out of the rigidity of His.
