    I guess not.....some people say that God created and then evolution took over.

    I believe that God created humans exactly as we are today, and plants and animals in all their varied forms, with the ability to branch off into other varieties.

    Is there another way of explaining how this universe came about without believing in God?

    No, and Science admits this. 50% of scientists say they don't believe in God, but they also say that they cannot say how the universe got started.

    I would say no but personally I believe the humans with Souls have been here for just 6000 years.

    The other humanoids found by archeology would be God trying stuff out. None of them survived. Yet Our DNA contains some of their DNA which supports this theory.

    Many people believe something one day and change their mind another. Others feel they must believe, because that is what they have been told. Then we have absolute certainty that does not move.

    Now the Bible says that it is by trust(faith) that we* understand that the worlds were framed by the word of Elohim.

    That takes care of the creation question, because without trust, your thoughts are subject to change.

    Having created the heavens and the earth does the Eternal Almighty "need" evolution to function? The answer is categorically no. Paul reminds us* "according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:"

    While at Athens Paul used this, "In who we live and stir and be". That word "stir, set me on a 4 year study of quantum mechanics along with a parallel study on cosmology. For the Almighty to control the big things then, by default, He must be in complete control of the subatomic.

    In summary there is no need for evolution.

    we* us* The redeemed, regenerate and repentant sinners.

    I know Him, correctly, as Messiah whom you call Christ. Yah Shua whom you call Jesus. Messianists who you call Christians.

    "Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm".

    I refuse, point blank, to speak peace to the unregenerate, hypocrites, religious dogma lovers and those that oppose the following statement:
    A regenerate man trusts in the evangelism of salvation conditioned on the atoning blood and imputed justness of Messiah alone.
    If you are fully persuaded, by experience, of this delightful, beautiful and life giving doctrine then I love you as a brother.

    Anyone who thinks that salvation is conditioned on anything a man thinks, does or says is atheist. I cannot and will not speak peace to him or her.

    I don't make statements online that I wouldn't repeat in front of my Maker, my grandmother or a judge.

    No one is sure how the universe came about 13+ billion years ago, but there is no need for a god.

    Logically, there is. If you are happy with illogic, I guess living in reality isn't a need?

    There is not such thing as 'meaning' without 'meaning.' Think about it and try to disprove that. You won't ever be able to. Try.
    My New Years Resolution: 1 Peter 3:15
    Omniscient without man's qualification. John 1:3 "Nothing"
    Colossians 1:17 "Nothing" John 15:5 "Nothing"
    Mighty, ALL mighty (omnipotent). Revelation 1:8
    No possible limitation Isaiah 40:25 Joshua 24:15
    Infinite (Omnipresent) Psalm 145:3 Hebrews 4:13

    Is Calvinism okay? Yep

    Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

    1Co 13:11 ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. Titus 3:10 Ephesians 4:29-32; 5:11

    Separation of church and State is not atheism "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

    No, really can't disprove your silliness.

    Since God made it so that "everything is after its kind and its seed is in itself" Evolution from one genus to another is impossible. However, very narrow evolution is possible. Ie, Wolves apparently are the ancestors of our domestic dogs which man bred to serve particular purposes.

    There are variations among bovines. Jerseys, Guernseys, black Angus,...
    "And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread and in prayers." Acts 2:42

    "Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" Philippians 2:2

    Pro scripture = Protestant
