Science is making useful, falsifiable predictions about the likely outcome of future experiments and observations using some kind of formalized universal theory.
Note the word "likely".
A geologist can gin up some weird model of geological plate tectonics or the temperature of the earth vs depth of crust. Then you run the math, meanwhile a dude digs a hole and drops a thermometer in, and the math and the thermometer seem to match up...
Biblical Christianity does not break the laws of the universe. Evolution is a clear violation of many laws. Statistically speaking, evolution isn't even possible.
It doesn't really matter in an abstract sense if "evolution is true" or not. All that matters is every time you apply the magic box of the theory of evolution in the future, it seems that each time, observations and experiments seem to result in experiment matching the magic boxes prediction.
Crap in, crap out. The funny thing about the "theory of evolution" is that it has failed to prove anything. Think about carbon dating. How the heck does that work? They determine the age of a fossil by what layer of whatever its called they find it in. But how do they determine the age of the layer, by the type of fossil the find in it. Crap in, crap out. You apply the "magic box" of evolution and it fails. You apply the "magic box" of biblical Christianity and it makes sense.
Well I guess I could dare your god to strike me down with lightning
Funny joke. Never heard that one before. The thing about MY God is He's not out to kill everyone who disagrees with Him.
in fact I'm kind of a distant fan of Christianity, at least in theory although not so much how its practiced by sinful people
Hurray.. I would agree. There is much bogus Christianity out there. It's crap that steers people away from the truth. The Bible, understood correctly, is not bogus, and is truth.
