    Wow. I know this is off the point but, I think this is the longest topic in these forums. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Back to the point, I do agree with AM. Let's keep it freindly.

    God does not guide evolution. Either He created everything or nothing. I personally believe that He created everything.

    Also when you said,

    or that the week of creation is metaphorical.[/QUOTE] What did you mean by that? Just a question. And also if a "Christian" says that God guides evolution; they are not a true Christian. A true Christian believes God created EVERYTHING. You are either Christian or not, you can't be both.

    Wes--

    A lot of liberal Christians believe that God guides evolution or that the "week" of creation is a metaphor for billions of years of evolution. I didn't just "make this up," I cite it from *years* of conversation with Christians. If you think that a god created everything, that's fine. But not every Christian, as evidenced by this thread, is going to agree. Keep in mind the different people have different ideas of what constitutes a Christian. This is why there are different sects of Christianity.

    Jake,
    excellent points! well said..
    If even Christians cant agree among themselves what the "absolute truth" is, you can see why I might doubt the opinion (stated as Fact) of any ONE specific person! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    (Spec's view) the PERSON has every right to say and think that! because he can hold any opinion about religion he wants to! so there is nothing wrong with saying that at all..

    Well folks, this gets sent to the Guiness Book as the longest running CIVIL debate on the subject of creationism vs evolution exant on the Web!! Usually by now the topic would have crashed into senseless bickering and name calling. I think you all may take this as a compliment as to the quality of your own rationality.

    I believe that Reality is plastic, and any generalizations made about it are false, including this one. The best we can do in the face of contrary beliefs is to keep an open mind, and afford each other the respect that we demand ourselves.

    This thread has been remarkable for the painstaking dedication to this kind of respect each of you has demonstrated towards the others, and I extend my compliments to all involved.

    Jake,

    Two questions. This is common sense. Can a plant photosynthisize(sp?) without out sun light? And can a plant live without it? Now remember the "week" of creation was a
