Creation vs Evolution -- Two Religions

When we discuss creation/evolution, in both instances we are talking about beliefs, that is, religion.  The controversy is not religion versus science, as the evolutionists try to make it out.   It is religion versus religion, the science of one religion versus the science of the other.

Evolution is a religious position that makes human opinion supreme.  ... its fruits (because of rejection of the Creator and Lawgiver) are lawlessness, immorality, impurity, abortion, racism and a mocking of God.  Creation is a religious position based on the Word of God, and its fruits (through God's Spirit) are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  The creation/evolution issue (is God Creator?) is the crux of the problems in our society today.  It is the fundamental issue with which Christians must come to grips.  The creation/evolution issue is where the battle really rages.

I am watching on disc some lectures by Stuart Sutherland, a professor of Earth sciences. A recurring thought I have is: How should Christians view the likes of Charles Lyell (uniformitarian geology), Charles Darwin (evolutionary biology) and Alfred Wegener (continental drift)? Should those men be seen as sincere but misguided, for instance? Or under the control of the Evil One? Or some other way?

I think there is room for both misguided and satanic control It is because of Satan tempting men like these to turn away from God that they find ways to explain creation without God, and they are sincere in their beliefs even though misguided by Satan's temptation.

Thank you for that. Just one more item--

Prof. Sutherland thinks our Moon was created by a Mars-sized planet striking Earth and throwing up a debris field which coalesced into the Moon. He says the Earth-Mooon distance has been gradually increasing in the billions of years since that event, such that tides are much weaker now. Also, he thinks there is evidence that Earth's rotation rate is slowing down, such that there are now fewer days in a year. Is this at all compatible with an honest reading of Genesis?

When people speculate such silliness as the moon breaking off of earth, I have to wonder just how "scientific" they are.

The moon has moved farther from the earth over the years, but his idea is way off the actual scientific evidence. I recommend this article as a more honest explanation:

The actual science about the earth's rotation is pretty much summed up in this article:

I think both these articles should demonstrate that actual scientific evidence is very compatible with an honest reading of Genesis.
