I have a lot of trouble with this statement by Christians. Who are you, Jay, to
say that God may NOT use evolution to create mankind. Have you decided to play
good, yourself?. Worst yet, who are you to call it a "random product"? Are you
an atheist? If not, then why are you talking like one and parroting their
God may, if He chooses, use evolution to create. God is sovereign and does not
leave his creation to random chance.
You have a perfect right to believe in direct creation. However, you have no
right to criticize the technique that may well have been chosen by God to
effect his creation.
