: Look. I believe in God. I also believe in science. I believe that God created everything in the universe. He made it a mystery so we (humans) have something to learn. We seek knowledge, and He made enough of it so we can try to learn all we can. : Some of you don't believe inthe Big Bang, but I do. In the Bible it says that God created everything in 6 days. But scientists say the Big Bang lasted a long time (definetly more than 6 days!). But I think that God did do it in 6 days, but I think each day was a certain period of years. : God and science can get along, but God overules it. He did create the universe, but He did it in a way we can study and learn about it. : I may be only 13, but I have my beliefs. And my beliefs tell me that God and science can live in harmony. But as I like to say, "We can search and find all the knowledge we can, but know matter how far we go, there will always be one more bit of knowledge we don't know, and to me, that is where God overpowers science. : To sum it up, God did create our universe, but he used science so we could understand it. : Wes Wes, I swear that I had this exact same thought when I was thirteen and far beyond! But let me ensure you that there are a multitude of problems with faith, miracles, and yes, the Bible. For instance, God intended pain in child-birth to be punishment for women due to Eve's eating of the apple. Yet, today we use pain medicine in child-birth and don't give it a second thought. Is this a sin, going against God's will? If so, could you prove it?

If you have a set faith, that is just fine. We all have one. But it's a big world out there, with lots of people and lots of ideas. Who's right? What's right? How can we know for sure without the multitude of interpretations of "God's word" (such as your own)? Just some things to ponder (I still do all the time!)
