    Grandpa Jones?

    Uh-uh. I ain't claiming no animal as my relative. The word of God makes it very clear that animals were created separate from human beings and are different from human beings.

    1 Corinthians 15:39, All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

    No, God did not use evolution to create us. According to evolutionists, it took millions of years of life and death struggle for a single-cell organism to develop into a man and all the life forms we see today. In the Genesis account, God makes it very clear that there was no death before Adam and Eve sinned--so no evolution could have taken place. The animals ate plants and so did Adam and Eve. Death did not reign until Adam and Eve disobeyed and, of course, by then they were already human.

    Common sense should tell us that there ain't no way a single cell organism is just going to happen and then just develop a reproductive system with sperm and eggs and just start populating the whole earth while the right combination of gases form to support all the life forms we have today (not to mention food sources).

    Take a look around--what we have on earth is a wonderfully functioning system in which disparate units work together--food chains, ecological/biological/geological systems, evaporation cycle, etc. Common sense would tell you that somebody had to have designed it. The Bible says it was God. In fact, Colossians 1 says that by Jesus all things consist.

    The following is an overview of creation as found in the book of Genesis. Notice how orderly everything was created.

    Day Created
    One (1) Light
    Two (2) Firmament/Sky
    Three (3) Dry land appeared
    Seas gathered
    Four (4) Sun, Moon, Stars
    Five (5) Animals that live in water
    Six (6) Cattle, creeping thing, beasts of the earth
    Man and Woman
    Seven (7) God rested/ceased from His work which He had made.
    It is quite clear that God finished creation in six days. After each day's creation, the account is punctuated with, "And the evening and the morning were the ___th day." Therefore we are not talking 2,000 year days.

    I heard a scoffer remark that God couldn't have created light (1st day) before the Sun (4th day). Yes, He could, He can do anything. In addition, the sun is not the only source of light--look at those little critters called lightning bugs. Look at that lamp in your office. Light is not contingent on the sun. God is full of Light. In fact, there will be no sun or moon in heaven for God will be the Light thereof.

    The theory of evolution is not new, it's just got a new name to it. People have been worshipping trees and animals for thousands of years, claiming that such are their gods. Is that not what the evolutionist says? He says, "God didn't create me, I came from an animal." Do they not say that a gorilla is my Grandpa? That there is a bird in my family tree? How about a rat? God's answer is in Romans 1:22-23:

    Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to...birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    By the way, the chicken came before the egg.

    Kinachonifanya nikubali ni kuwa..hakuna fuvu la mtu wa kale lenye structure kama ya mtu wa sasa, kama tulitoka kwa wazazi wawili mbona kuna wachina, africans n.k? Pia tukiangalia mwanadamu anazidi kubadilika kundana na mazingira mf vinyweleo vya ngozi kupungua na rangi kubadilika! Hii bado cjpata kufafanuliwa!
