Should I be a geologist?

I am Catholic and I think that geologists deal with evolution a little and we fo not believe in that. I do not want this to interfere because I am really passionate about geology, so what should I do?!

maybe when God created life did he do it in one instant or did he use evolution to create species? yeah he created life in one day , but to God how long is a" day"? 24 hrs, 24 days, 2400000days? we don"t know . when faced with this i was taught to understand not "how" , but who did it.

I don't know what type of Catholic you are, but the Pope fully accepts and endorses the science of evolution.
If you are more concerned with maintaining a 2000 year old myth than you are with uncovering facts about the natural world, then no, you should not get involved in any type of science.

You cannot NOT believe something just because your religion forbids and loathes it like satan. That's closing, boxing your mind to STOP learning things. That's never good. PLUS, It's been recently accepted by most religious figures in the Christian world that evolution is an accepted fact and is no longer a theory as most people still refer to it. Some scientists as well have striked a balance differentiating their religious belief and their scientific work, though much can be said about it hindering the study of such. It will be your choice in the end how you'd deal with it.

We know Christ was crucified on the day before the Sabbath. Mk. 15: 42 And ... It was hewn out of rock and a stone was rolled over the door.. So go study geology already ; '
