    Yes. Depending on how you define 'creationism.'

    yes, as christians belive god created the world in 7 of his days [not ours] this would explain the time of evolution, man was in the garden for a time but then god thought man needed company hence eve. still no death. that could have been a very, very long time, then the down fall, man cast on earth. with the knowledge he had gained by his sin. this would fit into our understanding of how we gained knowledge above all animals and still have

    Of course, if you keep the creationists far away, then of course coexistence is possible.

    I thought God created the earth in 6 days, and rested on the seventh?

    Evolution is an ongoing process, it hasn't stopped, so however you define one these so called 'days' your statement is incorrect. Genesis describes a finite creation period, evolution is infinite.

    Im not understanding how a finite creation period of say 6,000 or 6,000,000 years is incompatible with an infinite evolutionary process. Also God 'resting' after the creation was done, does not stop the evolution.

    You can't have humans having been created as they are today and accept evolution.

    Evolution isn't about all animals other than humans.

    Ok.. it's your belief... so what? How is that an argument?

    I mean that the theory of evolution isn't a theory that somehow applies to all animals other than humans - it applies to humans too since we are also animals.

    It's logically inconsistent to suggest that evolution is valid for the rest of life, but not humans. It's also completely inconsistent with the evidence.

    yes, you can believe in evolution and still believe God was the creator of the universe.

    Evolution is against the theory that God made the Earth so no.

    Catholics are free to choose whichever side on the evolutionary debate, even if modern popes have accepted evolutionary theory.
