    Not really, because evolution could still be God(s) design. Now if you are specifically talking about a particular religion you could be correct, but not all religions believe in the bible, Kuran, etc.

    Re: Do you reject evolution?

    It depends on what one means when they say "evolution."

    To the degree one asserts we, as a species, do evolve, I absolutely agree; and as Steve said above, I think there is too much evidence to deny that.

    To the degree such evidence is taken to unprovable extremes, into the realm of speculation and to belief to assert somehow unequivocally that our genesis and subsequent evolution to what we are today is not the product of design, but rather one of pure chance is to take it too far imho. I believe there is too much evidence that we are the product of design. In that vein, I also believe that our evolution is necessarily something that occurs only within the limits of our design.

    Take the evidence that we do evolve outside the parameters of design, then I rest on my belief in design rather than on the contrary belief that our existence is purely by fiat and caprice.

    Because it ignores the RANDOM mutation part of evolution. Assigning God the mechanism undermines the entire concept of evolution. It becomes just "change directed by God" otherwise known as Intelligent Design.

    No, either one accepts the mechanism of random mutation or one doesn't. Without it, we have only "changes happen".

    Absolutely reject the theory of evolution.

    There is no proof of it, nowhere has it been observed.

    Well yes, if one believed that evolution was simply one of God's natural laws. However, guided evolution (theistic evolution) is technically not evolution.

    It's like someone claiming to believe in engineering but not physics.

    Who says it is is random and not by some design? The idea of evolution is about change and adaptation.
