: : : : : Would it be fair to believe in 'God and Science', or the choice should only be one?

: : : I believe that the only need for science is so that mankind can see and recognize the evident signs of God in creaton itself. From the macroscopic studies of cosmology and astronmy, to the biologic studies of the animal kingdom, down though to microscopic study of cellular composition and bio-chemical interactions and into the sub-atomic study of quantum mechanics. All of these differnet and varied studies all point to a complex and structured design, all to complex and interactive and dependant upon one another to simply have come into being on there own. A great book that shows the complexity of the most simple bio-chemical processes is by the author Micheal Behe and is titled "Darwins Black Box." I read it and came away astounded at just a glimpse of the different, minute, intricasies found in the simplest of biologic processes. Anyhow, through my observations of the environment around me, I come away with the understanding that God's hand is evident in everything, though I may question why some things are as they are. My ignorance and questions about my surroundings give me a since of humility and awe towards a creator and this humility grows as new things are discovered, which in turn simply lead to more questions, ad-infinitum. : : Joel

: The 'order' that is throughout the universe IS & WAS the creation of an outside force, but it was more 'evolution' than god. Because of the universe's instability, which allows its existence, there are always changes taking place, i.e. chamical reaction. Those that 'work out' continue, those that don't 'work out' don't continue. Thus those that remain are there because the are able to continue to continue to repeat themselves, not because a god created them.

: New babies are born not because god put them in the womb, but because an able male & an able female made it happen.

: The earth's orbit doesn't continue because it was such a great design, but because there are certain scientific principals that enable it to continue; if not it would not still be in orbit.

: God is more an function of evolution in the sence that god created this complex universe.

Yes, but it is interesting that if the size of partices in the early universe were slightly larger or smaller than they are then all this would not have happened.

That points more to a "created" universe than a universe of chance.
