    Just to point out that evolution and the origin of life from natural processes are perfectly compatible with Christianity and the bible. And of course Christians are absolutely comfortable with the Big Bang, some even use it as evidence for God.

    Your queries about evolution and the origin of life contradicting the bible seem to be specifically talking of Genesis.

    Here's a good video of science and Genesis, specifically how to read Genesis.

    Well evolution contridicts Adam and Eve, and origin of life also contridicts Adam and Eve

    I've always thought about putting the two together. I adore science, I'm going to university to study it, and funnily enough I pair it strongly with my Christian faith.

    "Nothing comes from nothing" as they say, so yes, there's evidence from the big bang. But who put it there? Who put the atoms there to create it? It's always so fascinating in this debate.

    That's what I think!

    yeah but who would put God there?

    I certainly don't think so.

    Evolution disproves a 7 day period of creation. Origin of life disproves a 7 day period of creation. But it doesn't disprove Genesis. In the same way, evolution disproves Adam and Eve as the first humans created from dirt which then gave rise to the human race. However, if you don't read Genesis as literally meaning 7 days I don't see why you should take Adam and Eve so ultra literally?

    I find the argument fascinating too as long as the people involved are open to both sides. I think people would find I would be the easiest person to turn if the evidence was strong enough. As long as people can be civil to each other and not let their religion control their thoughts, I am fine with whatever people believe.

    Hello
    I'm not sure whether to believe it or not, all my friends and family are religious but with school and sciences telling me things that contradict the bible, I'm just not sure any-more.
    What does everybody else think?
    Think about how you came into existence, how we have day and night,rain, snow and sun.am sure you're not thinking any of these happened by chance???. Surely there is one supreme being who created us, the master of all, the master of the day of judgement.

    I believe God exists. Why don't you do some research to make to make a decision. Research about every way of life and see what makes more sense or is logically to you.

    Well day and night is from the earth rotating on an axis around our sun.
    Rain is from the clouds which got the water from the sea so it's a cylce.
    Snow is sort of frozen rain so similair procece.
    The sun is a ball of hydrogen and helium which fusion and fission reactions going on inside.
    So these points don't help me when I understand how they occur

    Well as far as science is concerned it's still being figured out. But like other things that were thought to be caused by God because we didn't know how they worked were later proved to not need a God to happen or work. So the Big Bang is still being resurched to find out what happened
    But I could raise the argument who created God?

    That is great atleast you are open minded about it. I would like to advice you to put you forehead on the ground like bow down. And then sincerely with open heart ask for guidance from God and be truthful about wanting it. Just try it. In islam as a Muslim I believe that God will guide you to right path if you ask sincerely. Just start from there first.

    The rest is up to you. Like make sure you research about all the ways of life out there and compare them etc.

    In my opinion, I think we just don't have a clue and that's the end of it. And we won't know either way unless He is revealed to us all at some point.
