Well, I don't think there has been any hard evidence for the existence of God either. I'm talking about real evidence, not, "Oh, these beautiful things must have been made by a higher power," or, "The Bible says so." Like I've said before, these things are not enough to prove anything. The existence of God and creationism is a theory too. Just because you believe it in your heart doesn't make it true. Hence the need to have faith-- believing in something you can't see.I don't know why you guys can't grasp my suggestion that creation and evolution can coexist. Besides, evolution does exist. It's been witnessed numerous times on a micro level. (I can't remember websites about this off hand, but if you want I'll try and find them) Our fossil record, though it contains amazing things, is far from extensive. Geology is so vast, and most of our planet is underwater, making much of our Geology untouched and unexplored for the discovery of fossils. There are a few possible existing transitional species: certain birds that have webbed feet but never go in water, other birds that are in water all the time that are just beginning to develop webbing. Looks-to-far, we are still evolving. Evolution happens so slowly that no one could witness it in a lifetime. And like I said in an earlier post, humans, though most likely still evolving physically, have gotten to a point where we are highly evolved and much of our evolution takes place in the brain-- technology, for instance. Think of how our modern day life differs from those of the first Americans or even our Grandparents. Thats evolution. Haven't you heard about girls and boys developing at an earlier age than they used to. That's evolution. Also, the genetic similarities between us and chimpanzees is more than 97%, more than the genetic similarites between a donkey and horse. Chimps are not thought to be what we directly evolved from, but rather, they evolved from the same parent species. Have you ever looked at the similarities between human and chimp embryos? The likeness is absolutely amazing. Plus all embryos of almost all species look very similar in their earliest stages, and they all form in water, which suggests that all life began in water.
