Default religion and the two species of man

i had this idea from another thred 'why dont you believe in evolution' how does your idea of religion/creation etc sit with the knowledge that there was once two different species of human coexisting, relatively recently

I think both creationism and evolution are dangerously close to absolutism. Evolution doens't permit the idea that life was transplanted here therefore excludes discussion of any scientificly possible argument that it did. If there was evedence that life was perhaps transplanted here to colonize the planet it would take a long time for scientists to allow the idea to be come plausable. Rigidity.
Creationism is absurd unless you want to be a dellusional book-worshipping mystic. I come down harsh on creationists because I throughly believe that God himself never revealed those beginnings to us- at least in such a factual way as to allow us to believe that adam and eve were in fact real people. The archatypes are stunning and they should be left at that. But also in this idea- Rigidity.

Seems easier sometimes to just not believe in anything. You know the root of the word believe is 'to wish' I think.

Ignorance of evolution is shameful but hardly a crime. Flaunting it, however, is at least questionable.

this thread has been going for 24 hours and i cant beleive that this has no implacations for anyones belief system or creation theory. it made me think very hard when i imagined that there were two species of man contemporary with each other,it didnt stand very well with any christian teachings or old testement that i knew.
well perhaps its me ,perhaps i am wrong perhaps someone may have an opinion after all.

Wasn't it natural selection that wiped the Neanderthal out? I don't have a problem.
