    In his latest Blog Essay, "Evolution Is Most Certainly a Matter of Belief—and so Is Christianity," Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. comments on "one of the most misleading headlines imaginable" that recently appeared over an opinion column in USA Today. The headline: "Evolution Not a Matter of 'Belief.'" [Emphasis mine.]

    Christianity is a matter of truth.

    Hebrews 11:1-3
    1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
    2. For by it the elders obtained a good report.
    3. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.


    God starts with nothing and creates all that exists!

    In response to the above statement Mohler very accurately describes what the theory of Evolution, which TK calls settled science, really is.

    The theory of Evolution starts with nothing and comes up with everything.

    what is commonly accepted as being 'scientific fact' is darwinism evolution, and that is about as factual as moon made of green cheese!

    Christianity based upon historical facts, can be verified, while much of "assumed scientific facts" is just that , assumed. based more upon what they want the facts to mean based upon their world view than what they actually show as the truth!

    Humans have between 20,000 and 25,000 genes split across 23 chromosomes while dogs have around but the same number spread across 39 chromosomes. In a sense, humans and dogs have cookbooks filled with the same number of recipes.

    The problem arises when one tries to harmonize the two.

    I do not believe they can be harmonized. That creates a problem for some Christians!

    I agree.

    Personally I am now YEC myself after some floundering around (in my youth) experimenting trying to see if it were logically possible given Genesis chapter 1.

    the only way to harmonize them is to have the bible as the filter that all "scientific facts" must line up and agree with, but many do the oppsite, by having the bible redefined/reunderstood, in order to have it "agree with modern science!"
