Just as albinism or dwarfism in humans occurs, I believe that it is perfectly possible for abnormal traits to express themselves in all organisms….which may be beneficial for their situation. Therefore, it also makes sense that specific traits would help certain organisms live longer lives and therefore reproduce more…so that species actually do evolve! The idea that weaker traits (in weaker species) die out follows this line of logic. Past that, I don’t believe that humans evolved from “yeast.” Yeast doesn’t have a soul, and I believe that humans were created with a soul.

We are all Gods creation. I think that is incredibly neat. I believe this because I dont know if there is any other way to explain how species survive and change. With evidence such as the fossil record, I think it negates many biblical arguments. I dont want to stomp on Christians, but I think scientists have gotten an unfair rap. You wouldnt call your average housewife to be the deciding factor in what she believes is the right course of action for the war in Iraq. But, somehow pastors and Christians who have never studied biology are experts on natural selection. I dont know that there is any other way to explain how species survive and change....
