Stuff like Noah and the flood was folklore even by the time Jesus was around, so of course he’d mention him. Same goes for Cain and Abel. The existence of evolution does not disprove God, nor would proof of God’s existence disprove evolution. We are all machines and creations to a degree - we have components and physical laws that govern us and limitations to our design. One assumes that when one is all-powerful, they would just snap their fingers and create something instantly. I would like to think that God is a better engineer than that and actually went through all the steps necessary to eventually get to us - various forms of animals from single-celled organisms to the dinosaurs and eventually to us. The process was not overnight and it’s doubtful that it was seven days, either (though as the Scopes Monkey trial once put it - how does one define a day when there isn’t a sun yet?).
The point is that God, for me, created the universe and all living beings. Evolution is just the way he did it.
The seven days thing always makes me shake my head. People assume they mean day the same way we do, a 24-hour period. Other planets have days that don’t correspond to that, so why would God? For all we know, His version of a “day” would probably be billions of years since He’s…you know…a deity and not a mortal with a finite lifespan.
Linkara has flawlessly stated what I always believed when I was younger. People like to claim religion and science can’t go together, that logic and faith just can’t play nice, but I always figured God made everything, including evolution itself.
Faith and logic, religion and science, are not mutually exclusive.
