Re: Evolution is agnostic
One thought that I have though is this. If this life is all there is that poor little guy is going to live with that horrible disease his whole life. If however God is going to do what the Bible says and give us new eternal bodies in a new heaven and new earth then it isn't as tragic.
You have demonstrated the shocking lack of compassion so very common among religious people, and shown us how religion comes to be the cause of so much horrible evil.

Re: Evolution is agnostic
C S Lewis said; "I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen. Not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. "
I believe that there is a lot to that. Does it constitute evidence? Not in the sense that you are meaning but just the same we are able to sense love, beauty, longing, fear etc. and I can't bring myself to believe that all just comes from a chance combination of atoms that just happened to exist in the first place.
Or, does christianity give you an excuse to avoid the hard work of obtaining an accurate view of reality?
Religion is often a way of outsourcing one's thinking.
I think that Christianity does the most coherent job of answering the big questions.
Coherent, perhaps, but how do you know the answers are accurate? Do you even care?
