    We can show a direct line in most cases from A to Z. We can show how mutations do lead to changes and we can show how nature selects for those changes. Most of that is observable in nature today.

    Actually we are all evolved from some common ancestor even according to evolution.

    Also animals were created before man. So dinosaurs probably came and gone long before Adams creation because we have no clue how long a day is to God.

    Sounds supernatural to me.
    Depends on what you're talking about. If you're talking about quantum fluctuations, then those are well understood and measured. If you're talking about how the Big Bang started, not much is really known on that at this point. Evidence points to a big bang like event, but not much is known about what predated the big bang.

    because we have proof that our earth is far older than 6000 years, don't we? and trust me, the bible patriarchs didn't live to be 900 years old. if the earth were only 6 thousand years old, we would have so much evidence of that it would be overwhelming. a book (bible) is not evidence, no matter how fervently you believe.

    we are all evolved from some common ancestor........dig's site claims it was noah. and, how do you explain the creationist theory that the earth is 6000 years old, when we have proof it isn't?

    Actually no we can't, and we are rewriting it all the time...

    On the big bang: We can say that we have direct evidence of a big bang type event, true? The big bang theory is stil la good theory in that there is no contradictory evidence, but we can also say that the whole of the big bang mechanism(such as the start point) are not, at least yet, known? Would that be accurate?

    Yet the Big Bang theory is the only theory that I learned in high school about the creation of the universe. Why not share other theories with kids and let them think for themselves?

    Now I don't buy a fish turning into something, something over time and look a dog! But plenty of evidence, backed up by many scientific area's do suggest it is plausible. So much so it is no longer (unlike creation) a hypothesis, but an actual theory.

    Creation is not back up by any hard data. Even you own sites say because it does not seem to be possible, it must be creation. I am sorry but science does not work that way.

    Science is science and faith is faith.
    I'm not ruling out natural selection nor the scientific evidences for evolution. I do believe that evolution is a plausible theory, but not a proven and perfected theory that answers the origin of all species. I also believe that intelligent design and Biblical creationism has evidences supporting it and that both are plausible but not completely proven. It's my personal scientific opinion that Biblical creationism is true, and I base this on scientific evidence and the belief that they are more accurate than those for evolution. I believe in exposing students to both, and allowing both to make up their own minds based on their education and what they know about each theory.

    The sites I linked disprove evolution and give supporting evidence for Biblical creationism specifically. They support their beliefs through science just as evolution does. It's not "evolution is false therefore creationism is true." It's "evolution is flawed and here are some supporting evidences for creationism."

    We also have proof that the world is not billions of years old. I don't support the stark 6000 year age, but I do believe the earth is in the thousands of years old. We do have evidence that the earth is thousands of years old, and my links show some of it.

    Should time be devoted to the theory that the Earth is around 6,000 years as some people believe?
