    I was created by God and in His image. My wife, on the other hand, evolved from monkeys! :lol:

    The two are not exclusive.

    biblical creation is mutually exclusive with science. Are you thinking of Deism?

    Not really, aside from a vague timeline given in the christian bible, it does not answer the details, and science does not answer the "why".

    When man was made in god's image, was that an amoeba? Ida? Or was it AMH?

    And what the heck do you mean, 'why'? It is the result of the laws of the universe and the interactions of chemicals and forces.

    Purpose is not something science gives us. Also, it doesn't explain in any religious teaching (not just christian now) the details of how humans were "made". We "make" crystals, by growing them and mixing in elements to alter their color as they grow, evolution is much the same thing in many ways. So the two are not exclusive, they can co-exist, it's the fringe zealots on both sides that won't see this because they are too busy butting heads and trying to prove one being right or wrong.

    There's no such thing as 'a purpose' beyiond that which brings the individual contentment.

    .

    Actually, they do. Bible says we were made from dirt and some Vedic radiations say we devolved from godly beings

    No, it's not. One requires intervention to prevent natural development whereas the other one is natural development.

    They cannot coexist unless theists stop being idiots and become deists or begin claiming their book is only mere allegory and innuendo not to be taken seriously as a source of any real information.

    ... and where did the first amoebas come from ... technically the "dirt". Still, the two do not exclude each other.
