Just as xxChrisxx said, evolution and God are not exlusive.Personally i don't believe in God, cos i believe in evolution.
First of all I dont believe in God since I learnt from Science that such a thing is not there in the Universe.Evolution and God are not exlusive.
I believe in God and I also believe that evolution theory is true.
Claiming that science and religion are in conflict is bad, both for religion and for science. Of course, there are some religions that are in contradiction with science, but they are minority. All "big" religions - christianity, judaism, islam, hinduism, buddhism are perfectly fine with science.
However, if someone claims that belief and knowledge are incompatible, then many people believing in God will turn back from science. We see this tendency in many countries and this is bad for scientific progress.
Religion and science are orthogonal. I don't like the atheists like Dawkins, that use science to spread their dogmas about supernatural world.
Becuase noone exept fundies takes the bible literally. That's why there is room for both.First of all I dont believe in God since I learnt from Science that such a thing is not there in the Universe.
But I can't accept evolution and God are not exclusive (orthogonal). What is the basis for such a thinking? How can one believe two contradictory things at the same time. I think the God believers after learning Science just find a clever way to accept both. They often look for gap in Science and say there is a room for God still. As long as such people are not damaging Science it is not at all a problem.
Note: I am a Hindu by birth and I say from my knowledge that my religion (Hinduism) is not compatible with Science and evolution.
Well since you're specifically speaking of Christianity (talking about biblical) then I'd love to hear your explaination of how you can 'not follow the bible' but 'still be a Christian'??? If you get rid of all the supernatural stories in the bible and you get rid of all the impossible. Then now a Christians beliefs are basically the same as mine (an atheist).Becuase noone exept fundies takes the bible literally. That's why there is room for both.
Evolution is how we got here, no doubt. Doesn't stop god from being out there somewhere, sitting back and having a little relax does it? So if people wan't to believe in god, yet accept evolution is how we got to where we are.
It only becomes contradictoy if you take biblical accounts literally, if you don't then it's possible that there is room for both.
