    Cain was kicked out of Adama to Eretz East of Eden where he got married.

    You'd have to read for yourself to really understand.

    Actually the vast majority of those who believe in a god also accept that evolution is real. Catholics are the largest of the Christian sects and they accept evolution. It's only a small minority of young Earth creationists who have an issue with evolution.

    Things like how genesis is about the big bang is a force
    fit.

    I did not see your plaques. Do they really have
    sayings that have a descriptive or predictive value
    re science?

    Most accept it from two sentences and then never question it.

    That's your idea, your thinking. You believe yourself more capable and more knowledgeable than God.

    We are more specific using the system of classification in common use as to where evolution stops, but type is acceptable. As to the terminology, I was informed by more than one evolutionist that micro and macro are no longer used, and weren´t used much in the 1920´s right after they were coined.

    No matter, we use the term micro evolution properly. it is small scale evolution that science readily supports, small as within a ¨ type¨. Not withing the entire breadth of living things.

    The alternative is way beyond science, and is something science can never explain.

    So, science hypothesizes what is so, and we show the flaws in the hypotheses as far as macro evolution is concerned.

    I assure you there are a lot more Christians, Muslims, and Jews who do not believe in evolution than do...

    "We" do? Who are "we".

    What hypothesis, and what flaws?

    Nobody has ever shown one datum point
    contrary to ToE.

    If you nor anyone can show such, then details
    of this or that within the theory, that is for
    specialists to work thru.

    Fundamentalism of every sort draws its strength from the lowest
    rungs of society.

    In Scripture I find Adam was the first man - Genesis 2:7,19.
    In other words, what we can learn from the Bible is that Adam was the first man.- Luke 3:38 B.

    What basis do you believe this? Every year or so, Gallup does a poll on the beliefs of people, and a majority of people believe in God AND evolution.

    Is a man the result of evolution from a primate ? They have much in common, but they have many differences as well.

    Science once told us that Neanderthals weren´t human, but, of course they were.

    I don´t believe your ancestors were baboons, but it is a good bet some were Neanderthalś.

    You will have to decide what makes a human, and explain why, if modern people came from primates, none of the alleged line of intermediary forms no longer exist.

    Wolves exist, dogs exist, coyoteś exist, dingoś exist, and they can all interbreed and produce offspring.

    If you were so inclined, which primate species is there that you could mate with and have offspring ?

    Its difficult to get a pure translation from Arabic but here are just a couple verses that are short and sweet without having to read the whole surah..

    (Quran 71:14) God created you in diverse stages

    (Quran 71:17) And Allah has caused you to grow from the earth a [progressive] growth.
