A cute email came to me recently that had some fact included, one being if we really evoluted from the apes, why are there still apes? To me that was an interesting way of pointing out something we might overlook because it's so close to our faces, we miss it. Do you believe in Evolution or creation? I believe in Creation.

I believe that God made beings that evolved in every direction possible. I also believe people waste too much time on this subject and if they really want to know, they should kill themselves or otherwise die and find out. I'm not trying to oppress self examination or growth, just wasted time and energy... and potential. Ponder, think and move forward.

I believe in creation but sometimes I wonder if we haven't evolved from a human who wasn't as intelligent as we are today. My thinking tells me that with just the human body and the way it works had to have been created by a supreme being...meaning God. Every man, animal, plant and substance is so complex that it couldn't have just happened. I do believe that both humans and animals and plants have adapted to their invironment over time...such as the fish that walks on land...if there is a need everything adapts. There are still apes...because otherwise what would we be able to observe in zoos...and wonder if they are our relatives. Hahaha

Creation all the way. I don't have all the evidence at my fingertips to point to the scientific facts, but they do exist. But my faith comes from the Bible, so I expect to be criticized for my beliefs. But it doesn't change my mind either! : )

Evolution. We evolved from a species of ape that no longer exists. They're extint. We, of course are not, we are an entirely different species all together. I wish people would actually take the time to learn about evolution instead of listening to the dribble that you're fed most of the time on the subject. A lot of what people read today is false. Take a simple intro anthropology course and the facts about evolution will be presented and you will see how humans have changed over time, from the simple ape humans we used to be, to how we have evolved into what we are today. The apes we see today are our closest LIVING RELATIVES.
