    Nicely written, it always stumped me as an unnecessary topic (creation), to have dispute over, since 1) the beginning is not the message of Christianity, merely a universal logistic which people are wayyyyy too curious about 2) as you said nothing disproves one another.
    I remember at my youth group (which was christian) i would always get really annoyed when they would preach of the 6day creation story since how could days even occur without a bloody sun or dimension of time! I always took the 6 days as 6 stages of irrelevant lengths of time to God, basically just illustrating the logic and care He took at each stage.
    As for evolution, eugh why should anyone ever think this goes against the story that humans were made in his image. Why can’t God be the logarithm (for lack of a better word) behind evolution, the intelligence driving it? That way he is still controlling and creating just in a beautifully natural way without just going POW here’s a giraffe i just thought up. I think the creation of evolution is one of the most beautiful parts of nature anyway!
    IDK im waffling i just wanted to churn out some words about an article i found thought provoking and agreeable.

      Thanks mate! Yeah, there are so many arguments either way really but no-one ever stops to think that they go together, haha I try not to waffle to much and just get straight to the point nowadays, you’ve got a great insight mate, thanks for the encouragement means a lot! 😀

    Great read Ben, I find that people look at subjects such as these too black and white: either you’re with it or against it. Although it may sound a bit like sitting on a fence in some cases, I do not agree with the black and white viewpoint and so I see that things are more of a colourful mess.

      Exactly! haha yeah that’s kinda what I was going for in the blog that they compliment each other as opposed to being mutually exclusive. Thought I might be able to throw people off by reading the title 😀 Thanks!

    Always enjoy reading your blogs man – although I was hoping you’d delve into more detail regarding how the theories of evolution and the origins of the universe fit with the teachings of the Bible etc – but still cool post 🙂

      Thanks mate! Yeah, I mean, I’m by far not the smartest on either area and I guess I just wanted to share my opinion really, but thanks for the feedback, might try and add some more information soon. Thanks again though 😀

    Science on a shallow level disproves the existence of God, but science when much deeper can only result to God’s glory!
