Maybe God made the Big Bang happen. So, I guess that makes you a Christian.
Or maybe you still have faith and being logical.

It's called a "Creationist-Evolutionist".

There is no such term as evolutionist, just as there are no gravitationalists.

Well, according to my dictionary, an Evolutionist is "a person who believes in the theories of evolution and natural selection."

Now, before we start a fight, realize that there is no possible way you or I could change each other's mindsets or worldviews over the internet.

You're right, religion is kinda ridiculous. But I am no one to judge others. What about you? Don't criticize people who are different.
Report as
No, it's a religious person who manages to not deny scientific fact, and it's the majority of theists. Evolution denial is a fringe belief.

Boxing Tally nailed it. Did you know that the big-bang and evolution are accepted as fact by, the Pope and the Catholic church of Rome, the United Methodist church, the Presbyterian church, the Anglican church of England, the Muslim sect of Sunni and Shia (the two largest of Islam) the Dali Lama, the conference of American Rabbis, and 95% of the educated industrialized world?

Not really. Its more like accepting God is all powerful and could have taken any amount of time and done it any way He wished, rather that striving to limit Him with human desires for everything to instantaneous because somehow, thats more miraculous than a slower creation. As far as im concerned, creation is miraculous no matter how long chose to take. You traditionalists fight so hard to limit God with your stubborness that you miss the posdibilities of so many other true miracles. If you look at the 'big bang' as Gods initial step at creation it becomes so much more AMAZING than just a snap of the fingers and there it all was. A loving God lovingly creating His master piece over time is such an AMAZING concept! The Grand Master at work!!!

I am not putting human limits on God, I am taking Him at His word as stated in Genesis God spoke and things came into existance. He said He took 6 days to create everything and rested the seventh, God said it and I believe it happened just the way he said.
Report as
I do not understand why people are so determined to put evolution into the Bible, when it is obvious that you can not mix Holy God with sinful man, creation with evolution.

A religious person who doesn't deny facts. Many refer to this as theistic evolution, and the majority of Christians believe in it.

Scientists who believe in both are called Creation Scientists so something lime that. I am the same and believe its just a matter of accepting God as all powerful rather than limiting Him by saying He could only have done it instantaneously. God made EVERYTHING including those processes we call 'evolution'.

This is my position. It is typically a variant form of reasoned faith. The deists, intelligent design and liberal theologians might fit within this camp, but there is not one group that fits all.
A recent survey of people in the United States shows 60 percent of Christians believe in some form of evolution, while 40 percent believe exclusively in creationism. I suggest the majority have the floor, while the minority may continue to ask hard questions, questions that generate research. I know scientific atheists who are quite uncomfortable with me as a theist being a supporter of evolution; they are skeptical of everything I say. Yet when I ask them for a mechanism for a haploid evolutionary shift, say from prokaryotes to eukaryotes, or invite a dialogue on how 60 percent of the species appeared in about 12 million years in the Cambrian Explosion, I am met with silence. We have our issues in evolution, issues that generate research because we dont know everything; we don't want to admit we don't, as it encourages the Luddites with the wrenches.

Well, does it matter what's it called? How about staying away from all the "isms" and not label each other? Wouldn't that be a more comfortable solution?

There's no problem, the Big Bang happened,god caused it. Maybe that's the way he chose to create the world. All scientific theory's are possible, if you put god into the equation, after all god created science.
