U.S. Churches To Discuss Evolution Vs. Creation

Hundreds of churches this week will revisit the question of whether man evolved from lower order species or was created whole.

Participants say they're not abandoning the Bible's creation account. Rather, they want to blend theories in a way that helps today's faithful reconcile their modern world with Biblical teachings.

Evolution Weekend began in 2006 and comes this year as the world
marks the 200th birthday of evolution theorist Charles Darwin. That
was Thursday.

Founder Michael Zimmerman of Butler University says participation through sermons, Sunday school lessons and even evolution dances has expanded into 974 congregations nationwide.

Organizers say the churches include a growing number of conservative groups, among them black and Muslim groups typically
linked to more traditional views.
