It's wrong because it pretty much concludes that God did nothing to create us and the universe, but Christians believe that God made the earth in six 24 hour periods ( says in Genesis ). No atomic explosions or anything like that.
Good question. Here's what I know: I know God created man. I know that if evolution did happen, it was not by chance--it was God prompting it. I know that God endowed man with the gift of reason and agency, and his spirit. Now, the Bible says that God created man in his own image. But it doesn't give us many specifics on how he went about it. I also know that God operates on a different schedule--1 day on the planet nearest God (the planet Kolob) is a thousand earth years. How do we put that all together? I would say that, yes, evolution did happen and was caused by God. The way we understand earth's timeline, however, is not quite on par with the way the scriptures do, which I think was caused by the Fall of Adam--literally, the earth fell away from where it was near Kolob, and I think that's what screwed up earth's timeline--made the materials decay as such a fast rate that it looks a good lot older than it really is.
Most Christians believe there are two answers to everything......1) God.....2) the bible. They defend these two answers exclusive to all others.....and plenty of them know how right they are in their two answers....they will tell you so....no need to ask, just disagree with them. Not all....but more than enough. Tbh I think this is a troll question.....but just my opinion.
As far as i am concerned, it's like this. God created some creatures with similar abilities (humans - monkeys) and similar genetics (small Lizard - Camodo Dragon - Alligator). But just because they have similarities, we should not jump to the conclusion that they are all related. Also think about this, if evolution were true, and we as human descended from monkey's. Then why are there still monkey's in the world today. You would think that as genetically superior beings, all monkeys would become human. Plus, you don't see anything walking around that looks like it is in some stage between being human and monkey. Evolution just doesn't make sense.
If you built your house for your children through a lot of hard work and labor and then your friends and relative went around giving the credit to someone else or something else who had no part in the work at hand - how would you feel? In the beginning God created Heaven and Earth (Genesis 1:1) To say it was a big bang theory or it just evolved - is insulting. Did the house you built just evolved or did someone have to construct it.
We need to give just credit to the Creator of all things - Jehovah God. -Revelation 4:11 - You are worthy, Jehovah, even our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because you created all things, and because of your will they existed and were created.”

I've seen Christians evolve in my lifetime to become more accepting of assertions of science. There are certainly the hardened devout who will only register what the bible tells them, but their numbers haven't expanded at the same rate as the more progressive segment has. May explain the 1000's of differing denominations under the Christian umbrella.
The biblical disobedience regarding evolutionism isn't the desire to investigate God's creation but the willingness (or eagerness) to reject God's word in the search. It's an echo of the Garden. Satan twisted God's words, convincing Eve that the evidence at hand didn't match a literal interpretation of God's words. So either God was wrong or she misinterpreted the words. There must be a hidden meaning behind the words that Eve could discover. And if she could find that meaning, she'd receive an even greater blessing-knowledge beyond what God had given her and freedom from His literal command (Genesis 3:1-6). This is the oldest lie, and it's still alive and active in the world today, offering justification for anything we want to do. Evolutionists reinterpret (or reject) God's creation story, insisting that the evidence shows there's a different meaning to God's words, and that we'll be blessed with knowledge if we can find the secret. This is the sin-thinking we can find meaning beyond God.http://www.compellingtruth.org/creationism-evolution.html
Well, the Christian perspective doesn't matter. The scientific consensus does. That's like asking for a kindergardener's perspective on politics. They simply aren't equipped to answer the question. There are many smart Christian scientists, however, who accept the overwhelming proof of evolution and still find room for god.
