Evolution

So maybe this isn't so weird, but I just found out the other day that my two desk mates don't believe in evolution.

Now, one of them is Catholic (I bugged her with so many questions when I was thinking about converting - she claims she gets 'convert points' for helping bring me in!) and the other is not, but she is a Christian.

And I just...assumed that everyone who wasn't some sort of 'weird' fundamentalist believed in evolution, but I was wrong and I am shocked.

Of course, the Church permits belief in evolution and belief in not-evolution, so it's fine, but I just...

It was a surprise.

And I've realized that I have assumed that evolution is true because I was told that evolution was true and that there was science that proved it but I don't know what that science is. Like, I'm not saying that I don't believe in evolution, just that I know that I don't even know enough about how it has been proven to make an attempt at arguing for it.

  1. It's pretty normal in my circles, but I think you always knew I grew up as one of those weirdos who thought God created the world... right?

    1. Well, see, I also grew up thinking that God created the world, but evolution was a part of it. The two things never needed to be mutually exclusive.

      So it's weird to me, even though I know that people out there exist, that there's this divide. I need to get myself an evolution for dummies or something.

  2. We have entered into the "age to come" foretold by Jesus in Mark 10:30.
