Creationists why do you think it is that virtually the entire scientific community accepts evolution theory?
keeping in mind that most surveys show scientists are as likely to believe in God as anyone else? CREATIONISM is a strictly anti-science thing... if you believe in God and also realize/accept that evolution happened, that doesn't make you a creationist.

Why?......I'll tell you WHY........Blame it all on Satan. God is all powerful. Yet He allows Satan to carry out his deceitful and destructive activities—within certain limits—for a purpose. God allows mankind to learn—partly by firsthand experience—that the only way of life that will work is the way of life He reveals... More

A creationist can also believe in evolution. The two theories are not mutually exclusive, though many try to make them out to be. I do not believe in man evolving from apes (and there has been no definitive link proven between us and them), but I do accept evolution of animals.

A question back to you... why do you think it is that all over the world people are finding there own religion? Because everyone is trying to figure out why we are here and how we got here. Deep down inside we are all looking for answers. And science is there religion, there way of finding the deeper meaning of life.

Because essentially the entire scientific community DOES accept evolution? Scientists might believe in God, but geniuses don't. 97% of MENSA members are atheists. According to a PEW survey in 2007, 94% of Americans believe in a God. Can you give me a statistic of how many, say, research scientists believe in God?

Evolution is a theory and not science. Science is having fool proof evidence for whatever it says, but in the case of the theory of evolution, it is accepted by a few, in order to deject God's existence. But, one day, the science will reach to the truth, when God himself reveals the truth to one of his servants, which... More

1. Because them and their highscool GED's think they know more about the Earth than people with college PHD's who have spent several years studying the Earth and how it works 2. Actually scientists tend to be more atheistic, and only a minority of the really prominent scientists believe in God

I don't like surveys. I have looked behind the seens on many surveys and have come to find that they are either bias or lies. If you talk to an older person, with experience in biology, you will see that these surveys that we are showen, are lies.

Plenty, if not all creationists, accept the THEORY of evolution, and no credible scientist will say they BELIEVE in evolution.
Answered By: jimbobthephonecian - 5/31/2008
Not "virtually all" scientist believe in evolution. http://www.answersingenesis.org/home/area/bios/ The bible states that God created man. He was a fully formed individual. Evolution requires small steps to evolve into a man.
