Evolution & religion are not mutually exclusive

Great short video from the American Association for the Advancement of Science in response to the recent movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. As Dr. Francis S. Collins of the US National Institutes of Health puts it, "evolution and faith are entirely compatible".

Evolution and Religion are not mutually exclusive.

Richard Dawkins. todays voice of evolution, said that evolution led him to atheism. He is very anti God and said, "It is absolutely safe to say that if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane. The evolution that the greatest majority of evolutionists proclaim is completly without God
Try to get National Geographic to write an article supporting Theistic evolution as presented in this video.

As a Christian my greatest difficultly with evolution is the fact that it is extremely bad science. The entire theory is based on conjecture derived from an extremely spotty fossil record and a Victorian understanding of cellular biology.

One of the reasons I am Christian is because the more I examine life, life forms and the physical world around me the more I realize this is by design not accident. It is way too complex simply to be an 'event of history'.
