I guess I only say it is a religion because in a sense you accept it by faith, like creationism. And since I am being taught (at least that is how the textbook words it) “this is fact. we know all this for a fact.” in school and the textbooks/teachers are not presenting any of the problems and letting us as students come to our own conclusions, or even discuss them in a friendly exchange in class… well… evolution eventually has to be accepted by faith. So does creationism. (i was fortunate that my teacher was a bit “skeptical” and i strongly suspect he was a christian!!!!)

No one can “prove” God exists. No one can “prove” He created the world. No one can “prove” the Flood happened. etc etc… I simply accept these because I see the overwhelming evidence that supports these things! The same way you accept evolution because of all the stuff you see that supports it.

So i guess in referring to evolution as a religion… well one of the definitions of religion is as follows: A cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion********************************************************************************************

sounds like evolution to me. as well as creation- i know i pursue God and what the Bible teaches- creation- too.

and you can be a creationist and a scientist. in fact a family friend just graduated from college with a degree in i think it was biology or microbiology.

here are some great scientists who are/were (before they died, that is) creationists (go to http://www.answersingensis.org/home/area/bios/default.asp

for the complete list.):Dr. Donald Chittick, Physical Chemist;

Dr David A. DeWitt, Biology, Biochemistry, Neuroscience;

Dr André Eggen, geneticistrof. Lane P. Lester, Biologist, Genetics;-

Past creation scientists:

Robert Boyle (1627–1691)Chemistry; Gas dynamics

Isaac Newton (1642–1727) Dynamics; Calculus; Gravitation law; Reflecting telescope

William Whiston (1667–1752) Physics, Geology

John Hutchinson (1674–1737) Paleontology

Carolus Linneaus (1707–1778) Taxonomy; Biological classification system

Peter Mark Roget (1779–1869) Physician; Physiologist

Charles Bell (1774–1842) Anatomist

James Joule (1818–1889) Thermodynamics

Louis Pasteur (1822–1895) Bacteriology, Biochemistry; Sterilization; Immunization

my point is: evolution is not science…

science is: the state of knowing : knowledge as distinguished from ignorance or misunderstanding

so since you can’t “know” either one you have to accept both by faith… i consider evolution a type of a religion sorry

I believe in a divine creator. He sent his son to die on the Cross for me. I accepted Him as my savior!HE TURNED MY LIFE AROUND and changed my heart- And since Jesus quoted from Genesis, and he believed it, i do too! it just makes more sense……………i am sure when i take advanced biology, AP Chemistry, AP Human Anatomy and AP physics i’ll be shown the evolution side- but i will never cease to wonder at the way GOD created things-

check out that complete list of scientists, it is really interesting. I will say that some of them were “old-earth compromisers”- why??? i don’t know… some creationists compromise what the Bible says with what evolution says… for me: God gets all or nothing. Im not going to pick and choose what I believe. I believe all of the Bible and I don’t compromise.
