    For they hold to God using the evutionary process, so how would that process produce in man the Image of God, and how would it account/make species changing happen?

    Go read some stuff over at BioLogos, they explain their positions thoroughly.

    An evolutionist would say that at the point in evolution thT God deemed necessary and right he could imprint them with his image just like he chose not to imprint with his image say a dog. Could you rephrase the second question? An evolutionist would account for changes through...uh, evolution. Not sure that is the question you were asking.

    Also, it should be noted that most serious theologians believe the Imago Dei is spiritual image not physical.

    They can't and they don't. They're still looking for the so-called "missing link" after 150 frustrating years (for them, an amusing century and a half for us who reject evolution) of trying.

    yes, but what is is nature, the so called evolutionary process that allows for species to triggerchanging to another kind, and fro humans to have a soul, apart from being a special and direct creation/gift from God?

    Do they hold that God had several different pre Adamic races of "man", but then God stepped in to give on eof them a special gift tobe "in His image" then

    IF evolutionary process was really used by god, why did just humans get in his image, wasn't there enough time for any other primate yo evolve into image of God?

    Silly question. God spoke, and it was. He didn't use evolution.

    problem is that Evolutionary theory is "junk science", as there have little essential LITTLE evidence to support that on a true science basis, as there have been NO evidence for transistion species in fossil record, NO proof to origins of life apart from God, and NO biological evidence to support notion that God did NOT breate all things after own kind as in genesisi account!

    To holfd to that, would be puttingscince ahead of revealed word of God, to negate real scientic evidene that suppts full creationism,and to viewgenesis in either a myte or allogorical way!

    You’re writing about a field you don’t understand.
    Your biases are manipulating your thinking.

    Evolutionary theory used in research because it is reliably predictive.
    Its used to calculate certain traits in a population, used by genetic engineers and molecular biologists, used by researchers to predict resistance to medication and in used to diagnosis diseases and genetic disorders.

    In fact the people who develop the inoculants for the flu shot each year use evolutionary theory to foretell the coming year’s flu.

    It's not "junk science".

    You can't study modern biology without an understanding of evolutionary theory.

    I am referring to the theory of darwinian evolution. reagrding origin of luife and species transformation, and how Man elvolved form common ancestorary to other primates...

    THAT is indeed "junk science!"

    What is you proof of "junk sience?"

    And, what does it matter as long as God did it. Must God dance to our puny ideas?

    NO proof of any species transformation from one to another, NO :missing link" ever discovered, NO evidence of pre humans"millions of years old", and this view totally discounts Genesis as being literally true!

    Your reply proves nothing. I am not arguing with you, just looking for real proof. For instance for years there was the theory that black holes existed. However none had been discovered. No real proof of them. But that did not prove they did not exist. And now we know they do exist.

    There is a lot of proof of animals preexisting humans. However I doubt you would accept it. So it is simply an article of faith on your part.

    Genesis was never meant to be a science book. There was no science as we know it when Genesis was being written. And, if by revelation, the writer had written about evolution neither he nor anyone else would have understood anything he wrote and those writings would have been tossed into the dust been.

    Don't try to make the Bible what it was never meant to be.
