Heres how I see it. Life was spontaneous and goes beyond any general understanding. Relgion, physics, mathematics, anything like that nothing can explain it. The Universe could be some sort of living breathing organism in itself, protecting itself inanimately. Because if u think about it, even inanimate objects have intelligent properties/relations, here are some examples:

Boiling, the gas seems to want to leave the extreme heat, as if to 'escape'.
Molecules, when they are moving away from eachother and flying all over the place that could be seen as them wanting to get away from the tight enclosure of people which causes the heat. When they get cold they come back together, as if huddling to stay warm. Either way you look at it, it just depends on your point of view because there is no 'set' definition for anything as humans tend to put things down on paper so literally. Like just because fire isn't made of cells doesn't mean it's not alive, the question people should be asking is why is fire so different from other forms of energy and matter. And it's not just fire either plasma etc... again all relative.

I'm scientific, so i guess you could say I'm an evolutionist. If it can be proven, or at least partly explained with science, ill usually believe in it.

I'm one of those people that everyone on both sides like to blame for everything from global warming to that annoying hangnail they can't get rid of; I believe in intelligent design. Yes I know, I need to find an ally way to hid in before the angry mob finds me and organises a god ol' fashon lynchin'. ::)

Uh... Creationism can be at least partly explained by Science. It can't be proven, but neither can Evolution, as it isn't repeatable. Micro yes, but even if Macro happens, you would have to observee for millions if not billions of years, so it's not practical. Neither can be proven by Science, but both have significant evidence on their side. In fact I would say Creation has a lot more evidence than Evolution, it's just Evolution is what's favored by mainstream media and the majority of school textbooks.

I guess what I'm saying is, if you believe something because it has scientific evidence for it, than you believe in both Evolution and Creation, and that's impossible. They're just too contradictory.


P.S. I'd rather not have to write out all the evidences for Creation, that would be very tiring and virtually impossible, so I'll just refer you to both Google, and this website: http://evolution-facts.org/Cruncher%20TOC.htm
