The theory of evolution is kind of the scientific hows and whys that various flora and fauna came into being. "Complex creatures naturally evolve from more simplistic ancestors over time." http://www.darwins-theory-of-evolution.com/
I'm not baptist, but while not everyone accepts evolution or the big bang, many people do believe that it IS possible to acknowledge both a scientific and theistic explanations to these subjects. So some people stick 100% to the stories told in the Bible, while others will see a sort of blend between scientific theory and the holy text. Even others are religious but simply discount the stories in Genesis as, well, stories. I'm not sure what you consider "normal" but that's my explanation.
I don't think they believe in the realistic truth on how we came into existence, which is basically the Evolution and Big Bang Theories...just the mythological side of things they believe. Even though a priest ACTUALLY came up with the Big Bang theory first.
I just believe my Bible on a faith basis. I have not studied the other theories. I heard this story :: A scientist met Jesus one day. The scientist said... "We don't need you anymore.. We can clone now & we can make man by ourselves ". God said..."ok.. Go ahead.. BUT you need to make him out of dirt ". The scientist stooped over to pick up a handfull of dirt.... But God said... "MAKE YOUR OWN DIRT ". I feel God is our creator. Others can believe as they so choose.
The big bang and evolution are scientific facts that have been verified and refined for decades. You would be one of a very few uninformed group to not believe in these facts. It doesn't counterdict your faith as a "normal" Baptist or Christian of any kind. One is fact based and the other is faith based. You can have both.
The Big Bang theory was originally proposed by a french catholic priest. Evolution was in fact stated by Darwin (a very religious man himself) that it did not necessarily apply to all living things, i.e humans.
I believe that God used both of those to bring about the world we have today. Much as you use a hammer and nails to build a birdhouse, or use a car to get places. The hammer and the car are not the cause, they are merely part of the method.
Considering that I am an Atheist. My views on Evolution might differ. But It is perfectly acceptable for you to believe in evolution. There is no way the earth is 6-10 thousand years old There is no way two people can populate the earth There is no way the earth can be flooded.
This is what I believe: God created us WITH evolution. He planned how we would all come to be. I believe that the Bible is SYMBOLIC. This means that I didn't take that Adam came from dust, or Eve came from Adam's rib. Perhaps Adam and Eve were the first homosapiens to evolve, and that Adam being created by dust symbolizes how the homosapiens rose from the ground into what we are today. When it says that women were made by Adam's rib bone, I took it that women are the same type of flesh of man, no matter how different they look. Even though much of the Bible is symbolic, some events were real, like Jesus's crucifixion, or Moses's journey to the promised land. This is only MY interpretation of what the beginning of Genesis has to offer about our creation. Anyways, the Bible is SYMBOLIC because if it was LITERAL, then only those who lived in the time it was written in would be able to understand it. Since it's symbolic, people all over the world in our times can interpret God's word, not just one person.
