Evolution, God, and Science

I just read an article on how scientists are trying to improve people's understanding of science. They compare a young girl to a chimpanzee. They talk about how DNA evolved and so here we are. I also came home Friday and Michael showed me a Discovery channel show that he DVRed on how we were once apes. The show took so much liberty. They basically took how humans act today and just turned those humans into apes. They acted nothing like the apes I see today. If we are from apes, why are there still apes "stuck" in today's world? The article also said there is no room for God in science. HA! I wish the writer of the article could meet John Clayton. John Clayton was an atheist, turned Christian through his studies in science. I have recently been swapping emails with him because we are both public school science teachers. Funny, my students don't know that there isn't any room for God in science because they sure ask me a lot of religious questions on nearly every topic in science. Ps. 19:1 - "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the works of his hands." My kids, most of whom are not Christians, are moved to ask religious questions when they learn more and more science. I am offended when I am told that my ancestors are apes. I am made in the image of God and I am "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Ps 139:14).

BTW, Michael is feeling much better now.

As you imply, if we came from apes, how come it isn't still happening? Plenty of go-rillas out there, eh? What are they producing? Half-and-half mutations? Don't think so.

This is just another manifestation of how chic it is today to be anti-Bible and anti-Christian.

In a way, this is cool, though. We should be honored to finally have some form of persecution in our lives.

Brooke, keep being the Christian example you are and God will use you in every way imaginable.

Hey Bird!
Well, one good thing about being a part of a community like ACU, if you know one blogger...sooner or later you'll get connected to a bunch more people you know!

It was so great to see y'all at Homecoming! How are things going now that you're back in the groove? Of course Christmas break is steadily approaching! I think you probably feel it much more intensely being in an academic setting!

Well, just had to say hi, and I'm excited to run across your blog! I'll definitely be reading!

Love ya!

Wow! Brooke, so cool to find your blog, and even cooler to find that you married one of the best guys I know, Michael! Great news. Are you guys living in the Metroplex? Sarah and I would love to get together with you and Michael sometime!

Congrats! I am so glad that you guys are married. Tell Mike I said hi. Great post too.

There is a great site you must know about called the The Center for Science and Culture:
They offer free videos and other things on the issue of ID vs. evolution.
