From my basic understanding of genetics I will agree there are a few grey areas in the evolutionary scheme of things. The fusion of chromosome-2 and the long gaps of switched off genes (introns) is still a mystery.

In the vernacular, ‘theory’ often refers to conjectures or unproven assumptions. However in science ‘theory’ usually means a plausible or scientifically accepted principles. This theory is usually formulated from facts. Theory is structures that explain, interpret these facts. Thus evolution is a theory formulated out of facts. As Stephen Gould once said, “facts do not go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's, but apples did not suspend themselves in mid-air, pending the outcome. And humans evolved whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered.”

On the other hand, Jesus (in numerous passages) said if you have faith (no mention of sometimes) you will be able to;

- Heal the sick
(I am not referring to the perceived ‘healings’ as being divine at the expense of medical science)
-Raise the dead
-Drink any deadly thing without harm to themselves
-Speak in tongues
-Pick-up serpents [without harm]
-Cleanse lepers
-Cast out demons

Scripture has in no uncertain terms stated the above to be the WORD OF GOD and the truth. To date, with millions of faithful adherents praying in unison I have yet to see someone been raised from the dead. If these supernatural abilities (raising the dead in particular) can be reproduced today as it happened 2 000 years ago and you can provide the relevant proof and evidence under test conditions and in the absence of the assistance of medical science, then I will share my sentiments with firefighter Bruce Monson. He stated that if these miracle can be proven beyond a shadow of doubt then I promise I will devote my life to spreading His Word to all the world, especially to atheists, agnostics & people professing belief in all the thousands of other "false" religions extant in the world. I will give ALL of my possessions and money to the poor as He commanded (Luke 18:22); I will hate my father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, even my own life in accordance with His requirements to be his disciple (Luke 14:26); I will do all of these things and be a suffering servant for Jesus. I will make it my purpose in life to be His greatest disciple!

I’d like to add to this promise; I will even obey and carry out God’s command in Lev. 24:13-16 "The Lord said to Moses" that "Anyone who blasphemes the name of the Lord must be put to death"
