The theories of evolution and creationism aren’t mutually exclusive. It is conceivable that evolution is a process of creationism that has occurred over the course of hundreds of millions of years, as purported by science. There is convincing evidence that natural selection does occur. However, to believe that natural selection is the only, or even prime, mechanism driving evolution is as much an act of faith as it is to believe in a supreme consciousness driving it. Personally, I find it easier to accept that there is intelligent purpose in evolution than to accept that it has been driven solely by natural selection.
