Where are these theories (creationism/evolution) taking us? Down what roads are they leading? Enlightenment? Debate? Feelings of superiority for being right? I don't know, but I would rather take my knowledge and apply it for the greater good. I don't just want the feeling I am right, I want to able to apply that knowledge to the world. Knowing that I have an ancient connection with all life forms makes me feel less alone in the world and a part of something greater than myself. The energy all life possess is my God.

Jesus Christ would be morified at the state of religous belief today. Christ was preaching 2 things; tolerance and love. I don't think he cared about the age of the earth or fundamentalism. Christ, the man, is somebody that I can totally respect. As for the institution named after him... I think it is morally bankrupt and absolutely corrupt.

Science could never verify anything without tangible evidence. Since your creation account is based upon a flawed book written by man, it cannot be proven scientifically. Smoke and mirrors is all creationism is. The irony is that religion wants to be accepted by science, but at the same time wants blind faith that cannot be questioned.
