    When did God put the soul into the monkey?
    The day when the Heidelberg Man developed the brain?
    There was not such day.
    The brain grew little by little.
    So when was it?

    God put the soul into the monkey when monkey became a man?
    There was no such occasion.

    Creationism is synchronism.

    An analogy.

    When you take the coastal road from Italy into France, in which place does French change into Italian?
    On the border of Italy and France?
    They speak the same language on both sides of the border.
    Neither Italian or French.
    A language that God created?
    So God created all the dialects as well.
    Ready-made.

    But we know when God put the soul into the woman. It happened in Nicea. I have forgotten the date.

    Did God create the actual animals, or the concept of separating them out? Is that what you're asking... I believe God created the actual animals, and that man named the animals one from another.

    If you believe God created each individual species of animal, such as elephants, then you will have a hard time understanding biology which is based on natural selection.

    And worse, if you can't understand biology, you won't be able to understand modern medicine.

    So there are two things you need to do - read, "The Origin of Species", and just follow the news as we sequence the genes of all the animals and plants.

    And then you will be pleased to discover that all living things are part of the one family - the family of God.

    Is the elephant man-made or god-made?
    Half and half.

    Is the domestic cat man-made or god-made?
    What about the dog? Is it a wild animal? Created by God, as it is?

    Let us have a look at the plants.
    Charlie liked them so much. And George even more.
    Tomatoes?
    Where do the wild tomatoes grow?
    Wheat fields? God planted them?
    Apples? Where do the wild apples grow?

    I see two options only.
    Either God created man.
    Or then man created pigs and policemen.
    And God, of course.

    All I know -

    Creationism has no business in public schools. As other than a side note in history class.

    This post is off the loosely applied definition of off topic and should be moved to 'creationism in schools' thread. As a mod you should not be applying the rules selectively.

    I belive that both of the ideologies go hand in hand.

    Creationism says that God created life on Earth while Evolutionism says the man evolved from the monkey (correct me if I'm wrong).
    I think thing happened at the same time. While Adam and Eve were happy in Heaven, here on Earth that specie of monkey evolved. When God expulsed Adam and Eve the first homo sapiens appeared on Earth. So we can say that Adam and Eve were the first homo sapiens.

    Basically, if you believe in creationism, you believe in something so invalidated by scientific evidence that it would be just as plausible to believe in anything else.

    God created all animals as they are today, you say? Then I say the earth is a tortoise held up by elephants.

    I vascillate. I'm not a pure biblical creationist at all, more of an intelligent design kind of girl. I believe that either we were created by random chance, or that God did not create something from nothing, but something from himself. (Or, God was a combination of energies merging together.) Like, God was an original energy that created big bang, therefore, God would be the world and universe itself, not a specific entity, but an energy that is growing. That is the best way that I can make sense of a God in my mind. Pure creationism is just ignorant to me, I just don't understand how there is any possible room left for it in modern society. Of course, in future society, there may not be any room for the popular beliefs now. I also believe that it is a coping need for human minds to make sense of things and have solid beliefs. People need "God." I need "God." Things without a God make things unusual and detached and nonsensical in the human brain. So, if I want God here, I try to think of that original energy, and think about how everything connects, and how bizarre it would be if we were a result of a bunch of strange coincidences.
