    @Tyler D

    Even dawkins has conceded the intelligent design or involvement is or was necessary at some point. Whether you call it an alien or God is irrelevant.

    Evolution is still ridiculous and silly nonsense based wholly on may haves, might haves, could haves, assumptions and supposition, made-up relationships, and trees of life.

    It is based entirely on supposing everything.

    Evolution teaches that it is very slow of unperceivable mutations happening over long periods of time.

    So why are we not inundated with transitory fossils? In fact the fossil record should show nothing but transitional fossils.

    Yet we seem to have discrete periods of creatures that lasted extremely long periods of time.

    and have difficult time finding so-called transitions,

    when the record should be nothing but transitions.

    There is no laboratory evidence of evolution, they have not even ben able to force it in laboratory conditions.

    And rather than letting the facts drive the theory, they force fit everything in the theory via assumptions and supposings or worse, when they should have rejected the theory long ago.

    It is story telling, very clever and convincing story telling, but just story telling, and utterly ridiculous.

    @the greater truth – “The false doctrine of theistic evolution”

    I think you are confusing the terms “doctrine” and “scientific fact” although you’re correct in noting that evolution does not require the intervention of any supernatural force or being.

    You would have to understand our purpose of being here.

    Also, Allowing the our agency so that they may be judged for our works, is not illogical.

    God could not blessed us for doing good if we are not allowed to our agency to do wrong. Doing good would be meaningless and meaningless effort worthy of no reward. And we would not be able to progress and grow as his spiritual offspring.

    But as for theistic evolution, for God to act beneath him, in ways that are less than Godly would be illogical.

    God must do things in Godly ways.

    The false doctrine of theistic evolution is simple a step stone along the way to eventually removing God altogether.

    "If God is capable of direct creation then evolution would be beneath his state and therefore ungodly.
    Therefore, theistic evolution is not logical or possible if there is a God, and God is truly God."

    A perfect example of how some of the religious abandon logic and common sense in favor of religious teachings.

    By the same logic, why would an all powerful God allow some of the senseless suffering we so commonly see?

    "Whenever the vicious portion of the population shall be permitted to gather in bands of hundreds and thousands, and burn churches, ravage and rob provision stores, throw printing presses into rivers, shoot editors, and hang and burn obnoxious persons at pleasure, and with impunity; depend on it, this government cannot last."
    --Abraham Lincoln

    That pretty much sums it up for this abominable film.

    Theistic evolution is utter and complete nonsense.

    And is just a way to introduce false doctrine into religion, and make false doctrine acceptable.

    Either God is God and is capable of direct creation man, and all the great miracles of the Bible, raising the dead, and walking on water, telling a mountain or river to move and it moves, controlling the elements with a word, multiplying bread and fish, defying gravity, instant healing of any infirmity or disease, and all the other great miracles recorded in scripture,

    or God is not God.

    If God is capable of direct creation then evolution would be beneath his state and therefore ungodly.

    Therefore, theistic evolution is not logical or possible if there is a God, and God is truly God.

    And it s only purpose is make false doctrine acceptable.
