"As someone who’s had the privilege of leading the human genome project, I’ve had the opportunity to study our own DNA instruction book at a level of detail that was never really possible before.
It’s also now been possible to compare our DNA with that of many other species. The evidence supporting the idea that all living things are descended from a common ancestor is truly overwhelming.
I would not necessarily wish that to be so, as a Bible-believing Christian. But it is so. It does not serve faith well to try to deny that.
But I have no difficulty putting that together with what I believe as a Christian because I believe that God had a plan to create creatures with whom he could have fellowship, in whom he could inspire [the] moral law, in whom he could infuse the soul, and who he would give free will as a gift for us to make decisions about our own behavior, a gift which we oftentimes utilize to do the wrong thing.
I believe God used the mechanism of evolution to achieve that goal. And while that may seem to us who are limited by this axis of time as a very long, drawn-out process, it wasn’t long and drawn-out to God. And it wasn’t random to God.
[He] had the plan all along of how that would turn out. There was no ambiguity about that."

So many people on my Facebook feed are griping about that Noah movie and I just
if your main concern about “biblical accuracy” ain’t the fact that everyone in that movie is white then get out of my face
The main concern I’ve seen people have is the subtle impious nature of the film that is just subtle enough to get Christians to watch it and yet blatant enough that non-Christians and non-Jews will laugh at “the poor stupid jews/christians”
Though I disagree with most attempts to call any religion a “rip-off” religion.
