    Quote what?
    Both are theories. Using the "it's just a theory" argument and
    saying there's no proof is like saying gravity is just a theory.
    Where's the proof of gravity? You can't prove it so my fairy
    tale must be true.
    I'm looking. I don't see any proof. All I see is the stuff stars
    are made of. Show me some scientific evidence. Got anything? One
    little shred of evidence, other than centuries old myths?

    Didn't think so.

  2. In order to reconcile this argumentation, you'd have to define terms.

    A law of physics states that everything is in motion and remains in
    motion. Even down to atomic substructures, there is constant motion.
    "Time", as we know it, is merely a relationship between motion and
    distance. This is easiest demonstrated by observing an analog clock.

    What exactly is denoted by the usage of the term "evolution".
    Then, from what - to what? Parameters would need to be set...
    Ranges of allowable outside influences bearing on the movements
    from one stage to the next, etc.

    I can do a quick metaphor with the concept "miracles", which has
    similar controversies:

    Moses said to the head-hootie-tootie "Let my people go... or else
    [these things - in this order] [will happen]..."

    Currently there are indeed valid scientific explanations for every
    event which occured. The "miracle" part comes from Moses knowing
    the events were forthcoming, and the timing at which they came...
    which led to their being precisely utilized to achieve the stated
    ultimate objectives.

    Same with concepts of "evolution". Were there more primitive beings
    which prededed us? Antropologically and archeologically, it would
    certainly seem so. Does that make a concept which contradicts the
    concept of "creation"? Again, terms would have to be defined. Does
    the Bible story rule out the existence of other beings? I personally
    don't think so. Again, the "Bible" as we have it, is a compilation of
    cannonized books from various faithfully verified sources, and has a
    thesis of 'Man[kind]'s Reuninfication with His Creator [or with his
    Perfected State of Being]'. It is not meant to be strictly a science
    book; nor a history book; nor a book of all geneologies...

    The translations which emanate from the ancient stories into our Bible
    indicate God made man thusly "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of
    the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man
    became a living soul." --Genesis 2:7 (KJV)

    This comes from ancient Hebrew... for sure... possibly earlier. The point
    to be made here, and perhaps to be considered where you are, is that they
    simply did not have language for "primordal ooze" back then... This is
    after the likely-metephorical "7 days"; therefore, "time" is not under
    consideration or at issue as related in this scripture; nor are various
    stages of God's ongoing "research and development" efforts.

    There's some purists which may get all-up-and-indignat with me at this
    point and argue "God doesn't make mistakes!" Well, I'd have to instantly
    argue "Then why does God make it rain on the ocean?" to make a graphically
    illustrated point; however, in Genesis 3 there is the story of the
    rebellion, in which God makes a lot of changes ("evolution"?) subsequent to
    Adam's and Eve's fall from Grace and pursuant placement into their current
    temporal physical world. And, on top of that, God dwells with them for a
    time, checking in, protecting them and seeing to their physical needs, etc.
    God constantly negotiates with his humans... Lot would be case in point;
    wherein God is negotiated up to "10 righteous men" by Lot to save the
    cities of Sodom and Gomorrah from total destruction. Thus, everything is
    NOT preordained or predetermined by God to any predictable conclusion.
    So, with all those variables bearing on our day-to-day lives, some concept
    of "evolution" would naturally have to be incorporated into our
    considerations on this temporal journey - and some concept of "creation"
    cannot be totally eliminated.
