Frankly, every person must establish in his own mind whether to take the Bible creation story literally and to what extent. There are portions of the Bible that are to be taken literally, such as the Ten Commandment which apply universally. The other ceremonial laws of the Bible were done away with when Jesus came. There are other portions of the Bible that are history and could be taken as fact. Then you have the poetic books such as the Psalms which express man's deepest longings and searching after God. Frankly, I do not believe in biological evolution in factual terms because intelligent design is more rationally acceptable. I understand how complicated the cell is and how such a complex organism could work without an intelligence being at the center and controlling it. The Bible says that "In him we live and move and have our being." That is true, I believe, of every living organism on the planet. Certainly God could have used evolution to create organisms if he chose to. But as for man, he was created a special being. We see variations withing species, but every animal reproduces itself with a certain DNA which is not easily changed.What would you say if you heard of a Christian religion where the theory of evolution was the official doctrine?
