It's been kicked around a lot here. Thought some might like this ARTICLE (http://www.slate.com/id/2124297/)

I am not one of those radical creationists
who try to deny that earth is incredibly
ancient or that dinosaurs existed. However,
evolution has some extremely bizarre leaps.
Read about the Sumerians'culture. How does
civilization progess that quickly.
Also, there are many scientists who believe
the Big Bang supports the concept of a creator
rather than disprove God's existence.
Science and religion feel that they must be at
odds with each other while I feel that science
may one day bring about a greater belief in God.

Hondo,

Well said. Both sides have valid points but the possibilities are pretty endless when it comes to explaining the nature if our creation and the creation of the universe. Get a scientist to talk about the time before the "Big Bang", they all describe somethnig with no time, no matter but find a any possibe intellegence at that time and now as presumptious. Maybe they are presumptous as well. The Creationists are probably on the wrong trail as well but have just as much right and standing to claim their position as anyone.

I just wish any of us were smart enough to know.

Actually, all you beed is a subscription to Scientific American. They've gotten past the Big Bang and they finally got the numbers to work. One of the gripes I always had with the Big Bang is "How do you know there was just one?" It turns out that there are/were an infinite number of big bangs. There is no Big Crunch, Time didn't stop or cease to exist. Pretty cool stuff. They are calling it "M" theory.
