    Lol! How does the Cambrian Explosion support “only” the theory of evolution?

    You’re so biased, it amazes me!

    The concept of god and the theory of evolution are not mutually exclusive, nor are literal interpretations of creation myths a prerequisite for believing in god.

    My thread takes evolution being true as a starting point. But thankyou for the reply.

    Are you interested in belief of a deity? Or something else? Just curious.

    I'll go with 'no' and that they are each separate discussions.

    No particular deity comes to mind.
    I mainly want to know what evolution science says about the general conviction to spiritual reality, and/or God reality.

    So you see this turning into a debate? and not a discussion

    Come on, let's not assume we know things about people we don't.

    I'm serious though. I went in ready to accept it if I found it to be true no big deal. I simply did not. I'm not alone or intimidated by ... much of anything really.

    I probably don't understand you fully. But the theory of evolution "says" nothing about spirituality or deities.

    I agree from a purely scientific stance. But some people would have it that the spiritual is totally refuted by evolution; and cosmology for that matter as well.

    Nah. Evolution rejection is a very small and vanishing demographic of Abrahamic faith (let alone theism as a whole) largely in the US. Bible literalism is relatively new and virtually nonexistent in Judaism or in the rest of the developed world.

    I just gave my answer to the OP question. Maybe re-read post #1.

    Since evolution is based completely in naturalism and a materialistic view of the universe I believe God and spirit are then totally removed from this worldview.

    I would be interested in understanding how you came to that conclusion.

    Uh, sorry, but what you are saying... is just ignorance of biology presented with a brave attempt at being convincing.
