That science is more like history than theory. We know what existed in the past and when it existed. We do not need to know how species changed into other species to know that over a billion years or so the forms of life on earth have been getting ever more complex. That is what evolution is. It is not a theory. It is a history. The history of life on earth. If you need to criticize evolution, you had bettr first learn what it is.

We know the the earth is 5 billion years old. We know that the universe is over 10 billion years old. We can see, with instruments, light that was emitted from the universe when the universe was 300,000 years old and that has been traveling towards us for more than ten billiuon years. During that amount of time the universe has expanded so much that the wavelength of that light, originally in part in the visible, has been stretched so that now its in the microwave regime.

We know all this for sure. What is written in the bible about these physical processes is just plain wrong. So the bible cannot be the word of a perfect god. It's either the word of fallible humans or god is fallible and is constantly making mistakes. Afterall he lost almost all the matter he ever made. That in itself means that god rather than being perfect, is a loser.
