    the theory of evolution did not deny the existence of god as i have read! but it didn't explain what happens to the soul of all the living oragnisms after death?

    also, it has been scientifically proven that pigs are more closer to humans than monkeys.

    i have also read in one of the sites that doctors use the skin from pigs to replace needed tissue on burn victims??
    so can we say the evidence are not so accurate??

    It has not been proven that pigs are closer to humans. Are you serious or is this a joke? Only trust information found in peer-reviewed science journals. And even if pig skin were used it doesn't mean that we are more closely related. It means that pig and human skin are roughly the same color and pig tissues are more useful in xenografting than chimp tissue would be. We are close enough evolutionarily that CD8T cells wouldn't reject the tissue..that or mass amounts of cyclosporin A were used to keep graft versus host from occuring.

    That's not the point of the theory of evolution.

    In what way does this disprove evolution. We all share a common ancestor. The word monkey, to me, does not tell me much, there are a lot of different monkeys. I'd like to see your source.

    so can we say the evidence are not so accurate??
    You may say so, but you will be incorrect.

    then what is the point of evolution???
    that god created only one type of organisms ( ancestors) and those diverged into different kind of organisms! but what about the evolution of the soul???

    does the theory of evolution deny the existence of adam and hawa???

    There is clear evidence within many species of alteration and changes within the species. However, there is no concrete evidence to support a cross over in development from one type to another, such as reptiles turning into birds or alligators turning into co

    There is no point to evolution. Evolution is a consequence of the way the laws of nature work: a natural consequence. If you are a theist, a believer in god, then you would see evolution as God's way of creating the diversity of life. The elegance and wonder of the process would be in generating such diversity from simplicity, rather than instantly creating all kinds of creatures and plants.

    Science is methodologically naturalistic. This clumsy phrase is very important to understand. It means that science assumes, for practical purposes, that things that happen in the universe do so according to laws: they do so in a consistent manner. Events are natural, not supernatural. Science does not deny the existence of the supernatural, rather it ignores it. The methods of science depend upon things happening in a consistent manner - bodies falling at the same acceleration each time you drop them, for example. So science cannot deal with the supernatural. There is no meaningful evidence for souls and so science does not consider them.

    There is no evidence for Adam being a real person. The concept of Adam, as a mythical figure is a powerful one, but he has no place in evolution.

    There is a huge volume of evidence from comparative anatomy, genome composition and the fossil record that records these macro-evolutionary changes. Scientists don't think up how they would like it to be, then fabricate stories. They make observations then seek for explanations for these observations. That is what has led 99.999% of biologists to accept evolution.

    Evolution does not say that God created anything. Evolution explains biodiversity not how life came into existence.

    Yes, that's more or less called Creationism (I believe creationist rather call it Intelligent Design) and there's only dilettante amateur scientists that believe it's true.

    I believe gottspieler linked to 32 videos called Why do People laugh at Creationism, you (fatooma) should watch a couple of them, Thunderf00t covers a range of different arguments purposed by the creationist. Also, the book The Greatest Show on Earth, written by Richard Dawkwins I sincerely recommend.
