Being torn between science, religion and faith is the torment of the modern man. Science though sometimes factual is usually conjecture or unproven theories. So many times has the facts of science been overturn, proven inaccurate or were just plain wrong.
Darwin’s theory of evolution has gaps and flawed facts and I do believe creatures evolve to some extent since there is proof out there living today, I don’t think man had came from apes. Yes Genetically we are cousins to the apes and that does not destroy my belief in Eden and the creation story.
I don’t see why god wouldn’t create lower forms that are similar to man for us to study and learn from when science would appear. Also the Big Bang is another theory that does not conflict far as I am concerned with the biblical creation story. Now dinosaurs have been a thorn in Christians sides for a while but if one looks back across time there has been proof of dinosaurs existing during mankind’s existence though they were called Dragons and sea serpents.
