This really is semantics. Atheists have hijacked the word “evolution” to mean godless when actually it means change over time. As a devoted Christian and a biology teacher, it’s not an either/ or choice. The evidence (especially DNA and protein similarities) is overwhelming. Genesis I notes that God created the world and populated it with various species in a sequence that lines up in many cases with the scientific evidence so far uncovered. It is a brilliant process where first genetics, then epigenetics play huge roles. Now there is evidence that quantum mechanics may be involved. Definitely God led! My favorite classroom poster was “The Bible tells us who, Science is discovering how!”
That last line sums up everything in one real statement. And where people SHOULD be. They arent of course.
While waiting for this film to be released, below are some additional films that are also inspiring and enlightening. I highly suggest having a notebook at hand when you watch/read them because there is a wealth of information presented in each. Also, I highly suggest picking up the book "Darwin's Doubt" which is currently on the NY Times best-seller list. I just finished it and found it very well written and educational.
Programming of Life
The Case for a Creator
Evolution Crusher (an entire free book that goes through step-by-step dismantling all of the claims of evolution - save or bookmark for future reference)
The Truth Has An Agenda - It is called salvation
"“The Bible tells us who, Science is discovering how!”"
Nahh. Science is simply the study of God's Creation.
It's part of the more radical atheist agenda to separate religion from science. It helps their cause of they can paint Christians as backwards superstitious Neanderthals devoid of reason.
And they have been pretty successful at it. Most folks don't even know it was Christians who nurtured the sciences, started the modern university system, and explored reason and logic as the means to understand our world.
@FREEDOMMAMA wow sounds like you get it. Good on ya!

A man of God who shares his human fragility, that is refreshing.

Is it possible to not fly American Airlines at all? Just asking……

As a biology major AND a Christian, I have difficulty understanding why it can’t be both. Of course God created the world! There is no way you can look at the wonders of a single living cell and not believe in a Creator. But to ignore the massive amounts of data pointing towards an evolutionary process, isn’t helpful either. Why couldn’t God use a process to create us? If he leaves us clues, why do we ignore them? There is so much to learn and understand concerning science. But I am convinced he is intimately involved in the guiding of our creation every step of the way!
Thanks for this post.
For me, I guess I just don't see "the wonders" as being "divine in origin". Even if they were, there is nothing [today] that points towards "an intelligent agent at work". It all seems so natural. Perhaps that is "god". But if it is, christianity shouldn't condem me if I choose a nature/earth based "pagan" type religion. I see/hear/feel nothing remotely "personal" in nature. To sit/stand in a church and "praise a character from a book", that I cannot do.

Thank you, Glenn, for your graciousness in response to hate. As a frequent patron of the skies, I will NEVER use American Airlines again.
June 12, 2012 at 4:54pm
As a Christian, I am horrified at how hateful some of these responses are. Jesus left us with two commandments. Love your Lord and love your neighbor. All the other dos and donts are predicated on those two. When reaching out to others, I use th Bible as a guide, not a battering ram. I try to always love first and let God judge later. Listen to yourselves.. the hate is palpable. And hate is not from Jesus.
 June 12, 2012 at 3:35pm
If I wasn’t a Christian and read many of the posts here, I would run as far away from Christian people as possible. The hate is palpable. Jesus asked me to do two things. Love my God and love my neighbor. I will leave the judging up to Him. The Bible is my guide to reach out to others, not hit them over the head with it. You bring people into Jesus’ presence by loving them, not stoning them.

Brother Winston, thank you for illustrating my point!

I just finished reading the comments here. Wow! The trolls are out in force! This must be REALLY threatening to them. A sleeping populace is so easy to control. I don’t think mobilizing average Americans was in their play book.
Actually FAKE-conservative/libertarian Beck's gibberish WAS "threatening." It worked like a charm in 08, when he helped coerce the "average American" into voting for a LEFTIST - under the guise of "lesser evil" and ELECTING Obama. But these days, Americans aren't that naive. Especially when Beck has done this IDIOTIC plan garbage OVER AND OVER already. And inevitably, it always ends up being some asinine bumper-sticker, Jerry Springer gibberish like "Love each other." This is a PHILOSOPHY! NOT A "PLAN!"
But... no. Fortunately Beck has lost ALL credibility and is just not a threat to Constitutional liberty anymore.
Step 1? NOMINATE RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT!
Brother Winston, thank you for illustrating my point!
Beck gets ridiculed for good reason. He comes off like an Amway double diamond direct with his big announcements. He's done this so many times and it always has about as much impact as a fart in a hurricane. Then he ties it into some scheme that ends up fattening his bank account and elevating his status as a messiah of sorts. Cut the drama Glenneth. You're already widely regarded as a fear mongering end times nutter. Game over. You're only making conservatives look foolish.
Truthbeliever, I'm glad you woke up to reality. I wish more people would join you. Breitbart was not wrong about Glenn Beck.
LOL They already took down my reply!!! Is that not the funniest shit???
Hey Blaze what are you afraid of??? You must be afraid that more people like myself will eventually go full circle with Glenn and realize he is just another rabble rouser. What is your BIG plan going to do to get the FED under control. WHAT???
Truthebleiever2, I noticed how fast that got deleted! Repost it so I can copy it and save it. It was great!
Wow - you are right Freedommama!! TROLLFEST HERE. I don't think that I've seen such a consistent onslaught of them, all busy slapping each other on the back and coming down on Beck's credibility. It seems a lot like any plan of action by Mr. Beck garners their ire. Well to all of you - your comments only inflame my curiosity about his plan and invite me to participate.
Keep up the good work.
It's your wallet silversmit. Open it wide - Glenn has fat fingers.
Well to all of you – FAKE-conservative/libertarian Glenn Beck's comments [about Alex Jones] only inflame my curiosity about [Alex Jones] and invite me to go to infowars.com.
Keep up the good work, FAKE-conservative/libertarian Beck.

There is no “right or wrong” anymore. I remember asking my high school class five years ago a simple question. If they were able to cheat or lie or steal with the assurance of not getting caught, would they do it? 50% raised their hands. And no amount of class discussion could convince most of them that it was wrong. Heartbreaking.
April 5, 2012 at 12:54pm
Jesus left us with two commandments summing up all the others. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. I’ll leave the judging to God. Only He knows the hearts and minds of others.
April 4, 2012 at 2:12pm
Is there any speech considered traitorous anymore? They are openly advocating the takedown of our country. Between voicing the wish to end capitalism to this “dying empire” talk, it all is seditious!

The President has already made Congress basically useless. What they refuse to pass, he just uses edicts and regulations to put in place. Think EPA with Cap and Trade. Our Supreme Court is next. He just needs one more really good crisis.
