Christian teaching is good. But if it enters into the spheres of science or history, and there bumps up against contradictory facts, one or the other has to give. As has been pointed out repeatedly throughout this thread, the Orthodox Church does not hold to a dogmatic stance regarding biological evolution. Literal belief in the creation account of Genesis does not a Christian make.Kerdy said:I'm not supporting anything here, only showing the vast amount of concerns with the idea of evolution. As a Christian, one should entertain Christian teaching. Otherwise, church is little more than a social group.
