Evolution can't be denied, we can see it happening around us today. What we don't see happening is evolution on a scale that would in any way account for the existence of the universe.

Step one has been taken, they agree with evolution occuring.

Step two, swing and a miss, as the evolution of life has nothing to do with the formation of the universe, only the fact that the Earth formed and is positioned how it is. And it still ONLY has that distinction because life needs certain conditions not otherwise meet in our solar system.

This blurring of two very different scientific fields is a big problem in the Christian world. Mars has no life right now. It may have once long ago,it may not ever have had any.All we know is it has/had the most potential besides us.

I don't care if they ever find a sign of life on it except for how that'll really wind Fundies up.

Just when you think they're finally getting it, they fuck it all up.

Considering that evolution and the big bang theory are not connected ...

Failed cosmology?

Biology don't have that much to do with cosmology

I think they continually mix these two things up because in THEIR cosmology we have creation of the physical universe, closely followed in the same act of creation by the emergence of life (fully formed and fluffy-bunnied!)

Sadly i have to agree with you here. Evolution does not in any way account for the creation of the universe.

Yes, I am agreeing with a fundie...

But then again, evolutionist would have to agree with you, in the sense that they do not claim to know how the universe came to be. That is the field of cosmology, not biology.

Great start Taeryn, but keep on reading.

Evolutionary theory doesnt give a shit about the existence of the universe.

No, you need cosmology for that, not biology

What we don't see happening is evolution on a scale that would in any way account for the existence of the universe.

That's because cosmic evolution is physics and evolution of life is biology; two very different phenomena.

No, y'see, we had to have a universe FIRST before there was anything to evolve. Am I going too fast for you?

Without evolution there would be nothing to contemplate the existence of the universe

The Universe is cosmology, evolution is biology.
Evolution is a slow process, great change takes millions of years.
