    life doesn't TRY to evolve. The opportunity just comes and certain mutations work so they survive. HOWEVER evolution isn't random. Natural selection drives it.

    and the mutation being sucessful depends on the environment. If let's say a VFT with two traps scares the heck out of sheep that would eat it (lol... bad examples I know) but an ant would be too small to know and would get trapped.

    Thank you, I think that we're all well aware of the fact that natural selection is not a conscious, tangible entity. I think you know what I meant. If you really wanna nitpick though *ahem*... I think that we can keep it friendly and enjoyable by not doing so, though.

    are we all? Just like we are all aware evolution isn't "just" a theory, it has tons of proof, we have SEEN evolution in process, life doesn't TRY to evolve, evolution isn't from simplicity to complexity (many times it is but doesn't have to be), when species evolve not the whole species does (usually) but populations do, we didn't come from chimps/gorillas, humans aren't the top of the evolutionary tree, etc?

    there are some people here that would get the wrong idea...

    Why not, i am yet to see anything that excludes all religion in evolution or vice versa, some religions say that you cant believe in evolution, and some religions believe things that conflict with evolution but not all religions and evolution clash
    You cannot fully belive both. Some parts of evolution contradict creationism and visa versa.
    where does evolution say there is no god/higher being? i dont ever remember that coming up in all my study of evolution. some religions yes i can see a conflict in but you cant say that all religions conflict with evolution

    No religion fully couples with evolution.

    Period.

    Do you know one that does?
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    My faith. And seemingly Ktulu's. Why box myself in the confines of a single religion? And if you're thinking of saying something like "well a few people 'aint a religion", well, we all start somewhere, don't we? And that's the point of this conversation, isn't it??
