“If Evolution is True, The Church is False”?

  1. I agree with your conclusions about the truth of the science behind evolution. But I can’t agree with your conclusions about the religion. I don’t accept the premise of Joseph F Smith that you cannot accept evolution and still believe in LDS or traditional Christian doctrines. I’m still not sure about a literal Adam and Eve as parent of the whole human race, nor do I lean to biblical literalism. But I could see God choosing two Homo sapiens in which to breathe in their premortal spirit and isolate them in a garden of Eden with new covenants. I can see the influence of the eastern religions in your philosophy and I think there is a lot of truth there. But I have no problem with a historical Christ, traditional sins, and eternal, individual spirits, even if they may have originated from some type of “intelligence. “


    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Brad. I appreciate you sharing your voice in this conversation.

      Of course, I disagree. I believe that God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34), so I don’t think God could have singled out two Homo sapiens among the thousands that lived, perhaps tens of thousands, at one point in time long ago to love in a paradisaical Garden and form covenants with. I perceive that God is the God of all Life, each and every bacterium that has ever lived on this Earth, and God loves all of Life with absolute equality.
