To me, it comes across as somewhat arrogant as a human to be adamant that God just went "poof" and the world and everything in it existed just as it does now.  That is a feeble-minded attempt to explain something that has to be unimaginably complex.  I believe that natural selection/evolution is an incredibly complex and elegant mechanism that God used to create our world.  We don't begin to understand but a fraction of it.  There fact that it is so complex and "long-term" is proof to me that is divinely guided and not random.


 Why couldn't an All-Mighty, All-Powerful God simply "speak" as the Bible claims & the world come into existence?  .   

God certainly could have, but there is a whole lot of evidence from many different angles that indicates that wasn't how he chose to do it, aside from the initial "beginning" of matter.

Did you guys ever consider this whole thing could be one big eternal science project for God? I had those thoughts a lot when I was a child. Sometimes "child-like" Faith is the only answer.

The key to the whole thing is "OMNIPOTENCE"! That concept can't be grasped, but can be accepted!

I suspect and believe its all (how it was done, its purpose, our purpose, etc) is way more wonderful and complex than our little brains can imagine or even try to put into words!

I have a question, and since we talk a lot of genetics on this site, How did Adam and Eve populate the world with out getting defects?

I asked my wife a question close to this today. Why did God not start over when Eve took a bite out of the apple.

I have a problem when people pick and choose certain verses of the bible to quote and then use those verses as the reasons they do the things that they do.

I think the bible is to be interpreted as whole and then go from there.  There are a lot contradictory statements in the bible.

Billy Graham is one of those amazing people that doesn't come along very often.  I had a religous philosophy class in college as an elective.  Our professor had written a pretty famous book about him.  Graham's influence on people and this country is absolutely amazing - and from what I can tell was always done with the best of intentions - which is very unusual.

He was very close to every president until very recently and was always consulted and present when a decision was made to go to war - if I remember correctly from WWII right up to the first Gulf War.

I read something recently that indicated Mr. Graham is in very poor health and close to the end.  I think his wife recently died.  You would have a hard time finding a better example of a truly good man.
