Creationists believe in a universe of creation by God. Evolutionists believe in many years of organism evolution. These are the facts and they are undisputed.

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.
We just happened to evolve the correct life processes such as krebs cycle, cellular respiration, DNA sythesis etc.
The planets just happen to orbit the sun without running into each other.
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.
It only makes sense that something or Someone was the first Creator.
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?
Your theories are quite weak. Chickens lay eggs, they don't turn into eggs.

I see alot of your answers are in the forms of questions which is an easy way out of explaining your point of view. But I commend you for trying.

I notice alot of your "finished products" require large amounts of time. Its hard to see that any large amount of time will build you the starting materials for DNA which in an of itself have an intricate design that chance or time could not reproduce. There are proteins that require the presence of other proteins to determine its own function. So how can you evolve proteins that don't know what they are supposed to do? Oh yeah I know the answer to that "how can I not prove that?".
I need alittle more than that.

For example, let's look at three claims of evidence for Darwinian evolution often cited by high school textbooks. First, as the use of antibiotics has
become common, mutant strains of resistant bacteria have become more common, threatening public health. Second, darkcolored variants of a
certain moth species evaded predation by birds because their color matched the sooty tree trunks of industrial England. Third, the embryos of fish,
amphibians, birds and mammals look virtually identical in an early stage of development, becoming different only at later stages.

A relevant distinction, however, is that only the first example is true. The second example is unsupported by current evidence, while the third is
downright false. Although light and darkcolored moths did vary in expected ways in some regions of England, elsewhere they didn't. Further,
textbook photographs showing moths resting on tree trunks in the day, where birds supposedly ate them, run afoul of the fact that the moths are
active at night and don't normally rest on tree trunks. After learning about the problems with this favorite Darwinian example, an evolutionary
scientist wrote in the journal Nature that he felt the way he did as a boy when he learned there was no Santa Claus.
