Religion and science are mutually exclusive because science does not use faith which is belief with no evidence. Faith does not use science because do do so would imply a lack of faith.

As for creation, no religious creation story matches anything factual that's ever been found. Is it possible that we were created and then evolved? Yes, certainly. It's just not the stories that humans are coming up with. In college philosophy, we learned that what all humans are really worshiping are creation and death. Those are god(s). The god humans reach out to is really the thing that started us all whether it be living or not. We simply do not know.

Personally, I don't believe that Evolution and Creationism are mutually exclusive. If days don't have to be hours, but are millions of years, and the creative catalyst we call the Big Bang can also be called God, I don't really see a difference.

I never really followed religion. The Bible is full of points and then points that are counterpoints to the first points. Things just don't add up. Plus, Christianity has become a weapon for radical Christians to use against people they don't like. That one verse about laying with a man is used to damn homosexuality. I read somewhere that that verse is actually referring to something like prostitution. But people still say that gays are going to hell. Nevermind the fact that Jesus never said anything about homosexuality. Everything in that book is sketchy- I saw a picture a bit ago where someone read the entire Bible and noted every incidence of misogyny, rape, murder, etc and it's pretty ridiculous. I don't remember hearing any of those verses when my parents dragged me to church. I don't respect any religion that places any portion of humanity below other portions. Like Muslim and Islamic religions, where women can be raped if they're not covered head to toe and are valued as less than fricking goats- just because of their gender.

For me, Science is more material. I can understand it. I like knowing and learning how things work! Clocks, for example, are super cool! I would love to take the time to just take clocks apart and see how they work. Science explains things. Did you know that the uvula functions, not only for the gag reflex, but also as a flap to keep food from going up your noes? I find it fascinating that our bones make our blood! Sodium Chloride! Split it up. Sodium is highly reactive with everything and can even become explosive! Chloride is a super poisonous gas that can kill you in minutes! Put them together and you get a solution that every cell in your body needs to survive. HOW COOL IS THAT?! Very. Science explains things! Now, I do know that there are holes in science- things that we can't explain. My fiance knows someone who went into the hospital with a massive tumor somewhere in her body [brain or lungs, I think] They decided to wait a day, the family prayed, and then they screened again. Poof! The tumor was gone! They know it was there but they have no idea where it went. But still, for me, "God works in mysterious ways" just doesn't do it for me. I'm not condemning religion at all- I have seen how it can affect people- but it just doesn't do anything for me. Maybe it's the stigma, I don't know. I really hate seeing people talk up that verse that might be about homosexuality and then ignore Matthews 7 [yes?]: Judge not, lest ye be judged.

For some reason, both ideologies coexist in my mind. I probably lean more towards evolution since it seems more logical/has more evidence supporting it. But I won't outright dismiss creationism either, since there's nothing to disprove it.

And God definitely at the moment is not popular, and it's like everythings turned back to front, and what use to be valued as good is bad and vise a verse.. and that's called evolution, yet not many stop to consider that it's still called just a theory and yet to be proved. And that actually Bible can prove sound evidence of creation when carefully examined, but obviously if you are already bias and closed in mind sadly you will never be able to see this.

I know I'm most probably going to get lots of stones thrown at me saying this but hey, hence you asked that's my 2 cents to the matter. :)

How is the bible proof of anything?

Also, once and for all, theory in this case does not mean unproven. A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation.

I have a philosophy class that is going over this. I personally agree with Bill Nye, just because of his speeches make it so clear. How can one ignore real evidence. Humans evolved, just like everything else. If someone wants to believe there was some devine(s) hand(s) in that then good for them, just don't be ignorant of facts, just because of personal issues.

I would not believe in creationism until there has been proof of such an almighty being.
