You are putting two things together, aren't you?, your faith and science. If
you were an atheist you would forget about your faith and go about your
science. You tell me what is theistic evolution to an atheist? It is like
grapenut neither grape nor nut. Didn't we criticize Newton for invoking
angels to avoid the slowing down of planets due to friction? Moorad
