Faith is belief (note that from OED) in things unseen. Who cares why I believe. I also am a scientist (see 4 above). I am quite happy with both answers.

Kill them all, let God sort them out.
1)What is USMA?
2)What degrees from Urbana?
3)Is Episcolalian Catholic lite? Does it embrace the Three Wise Men, the Ark, Earth being only 600o years old?
4)More about your scientific cred. A Ph.D.? M.S.? B.S.? Did not finish?

If you believe in evolution...Show me something in the changing stage of evolution.

There is nothing.

(Unless you beleive the Geico commercials and think there are or were Cavemen!! LOL People living in caves not knowing how to write and having to draw pictures to communicate does not make them sub-human.)

There are no human, monkeys, ape, animals in mid change from other animals of their kind. I have seen no Humans with wings or half monkey/man animals. So how can you believe in evolution?

Show me some living proof of evolution and not past, made up by scientists, history of evolution.

You can blend 2 plants together to make a new one, but that is not evolution. That only happens cause someone made it hapen.

You can mate 2 different dogs together to get a mutt...that's not evolution...that's actually making a lesser of an animal. wouldn't that be de-evolution?

So believing in evolution is as absurd to me as believing in God is to you.

To each their own.

Believe it or not!

Until you understand the difference between science and "belief" you will not be able to frame a viable argument.

So based on your theory we may not have evolved but are rather the product of cross breading, right? Did some higher intelligent beings from outer space do the nasty with some earthlings monkeys? Are you going to deny that we don't share enough stuff with monkeys? I mean it's right down and inline with your theory, no?

Actually, the answer is "everything". I can't sit still long enough to watch a redwood grow, that doesn't mean it isn't growing. Your "I can't see it, so it cannot be" argument also effectively discounts the existance of god, I hope that wasn't your fall back position.

Oh no, you don't want him to think that God made us in his image, that would mean God looks like a monkey too, oh no oh no

Nope. you mis read.

I say there is No evolution. No cross breeding involved with human being the way we are.

I said to cross breed dogs makes for a mutt.

You need to understand what you read before responding.

If we are not mutts then we are in God's image, right? I read your theory but responded with two posts, check it out

Humans don't look like monkeys at least not where I live. Different animals.

What you say does not make sense.

Prove your evolution to me...Show me some living, current evolution in progress. (not in the Growing process!)

There is none.
