Well, now that's a pretty simplistic way of looking at things. There are many evolutionists who believe that God is still responsible for the creation of the universe.

quote:

As a Creationist how can an evolutionist say that by complete and utter chance:
The earth is at just the right tilt to that we don't burn or freeze to death.

Whoaa, who says that we would freeze or burn to death if the world was not tilted on its axis. Freezing or burning to death would depend on the distance we are from the sun; not the tilt of its axis.

quote:

We just happened to evolve the correct life processes such as krebs cycle, cellular respiration, DNA sythesis etc.

??? The Krebs Cycle (which is cellular respiration) and DNA evolved. If they didn't evolve we wouldn't be here having this discussion. Check out some good books on abiogenesis such as "The Spark of Life" and "Abiogenesis." Sorry I can't recall authors' names of the top of my head, and am too lazy to go upstairs and look for them, but do an Amazon search and you will find them. The books are complex but explain evolutionary scenarios for the Krebs cycle and DNA. A simpler book would be Christian DeDuve's "Vital Dust." DeDuve is a nobel laureate biologist who works specifically on the origin of life issue.

quote:

The planets just happen to orbit the sun without running into each other.

As we say in the Navy, "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Over?" The planets have run into each other. That's why we have a moon. It took quite a long time for the planets to stop having collisions with a multitude of planetesimals, and only after that did life gain a foothold on our planet.

Everything in life depends on a pattern of something creating something else. Your mom and dad didn't evolve into you, they "created" you through a complex system of reproduction.

Actually it's not that complex. Have you ever tried it? It's really quite easy. A lot of fun too, I should add.

quote:

It only makes sense that something or Someone was the first Creator.

And that something was quantum physics. Although if you want to say that there was a "Creator" of the laws of quantum physics, that's fine, but you haven't ruled out evolution by any stretch.

[QUOTE][b]
And if I'm not mistaken evolutionists believe in the Big Bang theory?
Where did this comet or particle come from that supposedly started all life? Are you telling me that time is circular and has no Beginning?
[B][/QUOTE]

Again, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over? The Big Bang says nothing about comet formation or has anything to do with comets. I'm not sure where you're getting your info on the Big Bang Cosmology, but it sounds like your getting it from your local fundy minister. Hardly a good source. Try reading a few good books for laymen on the issue such as "A Brief History of Time" by Stephen Hawking, or "The First Three Minutes" a great book by Nobel prize winner Steven Weinberg.

quote:

Your theories are quite weak. Chickens lay eggs, they don't turn into eggs.

Your knowledge of the subject matter is quite weak. Are you a high school student perhaps? If so, don't make up your mind yet. Why don't you read a lot, first. Start with those I mentioned above and then some basic college level textbooks on biology, evolution, physics, chemistry, philosophy of science, history of science and then move on to even more complex books and laymen books on the subject. It's really quite a fascinating subject matter when you get into it.
