Yeah like some other members mentioned "why don't you read a science book? why don't you look at the evidence?" and the difference between me (or any other rational person) and you is that I take the world as it is, I rely on observable evidence; while you have an agenda. In your case it's that Jesus rose from the dead. You start with that foundational belief then conveniently sidestep logic and reason backward to specific beliefs. Everything has to subordinate so that your fundamentalism can be untouched. Therefore since Jesus divinity makes perfect sense to you, evolution can't because that is ultimately contradictory to divinity of Jesus.

Therefore you have to ask yourself why do you believe that Jesus rose from the dead and that it wasn't a case that people lied, someone ransacked the tomb, the witnesses were unreliable (of course if Jesus even existed)?
Seriously, What evidence would prove you that Jesus was not divine/rise from the dead?

That's why when you mostly talk to religious people that deny evolution, it is rarely about the evolution itself and showing them the evidence, rather it's about their bias, their core belief on which their worldview stands on.

Reply is non-sequitur to posting. Somehow the 'Resurrection' got brought-up, probably an agenda.

So Jesus resurrection is non sequitur to your life? You do not base your beliefs on the Bible including the origin of human species?

Funny thing is, you don't have to try very hard to "dismantle the Christian belief." You just have to sort of look around you and observe.

“Love is the only bow on Life’s dark cloud. It is the morning and the evening star. It shines upon the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb. It is the mother of art, inspirer of poet, patriot and philosopher.

It is the air and light of every heart – builder of every home, kindler of every fire on every hearth. It was the first to dream of immortality. It fills the world with melody – for music is the voice of love.

Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to Joy, and makes royal kings and queens of common clay. It is the perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart, and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts; but with it, earth is heaven, and we are gods.” - Robert. G. Ingersoll

No one has come close to showing that even the simplest living entity could possibly assemble itself.

Fossils support Biblical Creation. An example with be the Trilobites. They appeared suddenly without evidence of transitional forms. Naturalism propounds something like this:  "Trilobite Origins and Extinction: Trilobites probably arose from a soft bodied ancestor in the Pre-Cambrian. The first actual trilobites fossils found are from the Cambrian"*

The Cambrian period corresponds to the 5'th day ('day' here is a long but definite period of time'). Some 500 mya, the number of Earth’s animal phyla (a phylum designates life-forms sharing the same basic body plan) increased dramatically. Somewhere between 50 and 80 percent of all animal phyla ever to exist appeared.

So what's being proposed here is 'probably' a soft-bodied ancestor evolved to a fossil exoskeleton arthropod; however, there is no soft-bodied specimen, nor any somewhat fossilized specimen that can be presented. Without the fossils, evolution is just a proposal.
