God created the universe with laws (gravity, time, etc.) by which it operates; we are able to understand these laws and make discoveries about past and future events and phenomena, including evolution. Evolution is simply a scientific understanding of our origins. It does not make God unnecessary. However, it may mean we need to reevaluate Him and our place in the universe. Evolution may imply that the universe is bigger and more complex than we at first imagined.

Many Christians, unfortunately, are reluctant to accept modern science. Creationists, rather than accepting the ever increasing mountain of evidence validating evolution, have developed a new tactic: in addition to their religious and creation "science" premise, they now spin complex and sophisticated scientific arguments debunking evolution ("Intelligent Design Theory"). The Kansas Board of Education's 1999 decision removing evolution from their curriculum was a short-lived victory for such a strategy (reversed in 2001).

But is it possible to be a Christian and fully accept modern science, including biological evolution and the Big Bang? Is it possible to be a Christian and accept a valuable, yet non-perfect Bible? Yes!
