Of all the religious scripture available, the Jewish bible is the only scripture that supports the sceintific concept of evolution.

Now I do not believe that god wrote the bible directly. Rather he, and /or she told the story of creation to humans, who retold it many times, and finally some Rabis wrote it down, presumably with the inspiration of god, so that we can believe that it came from God. However, they got the days mixed up.

If we switch Wednesday with Thursday (if I emember correctly), then the day by day story of god's creation agrees exactly with the epoch by epoch history of the world. The mixed up days is well known in biblical scholarship.

That history is not based on evolution. It is based on geology and archaelogy, the earth sciences. Evolution is the theory of how more and more complex lifeforms came into existence. That is theory.

But the fact that life started in the oceans and migrated to land is not theory. It is fact and it is fact that appears in the biblical story of creation.

So to begin a discussion of evolution we first have to agree that that scientific history of the world agrees with the Jewish creation story.
