Letter: Choosing the Bible over theory

This is in response to Mr. Bean's letter to the editor on Nov. 9. He has the right to his opinion but so do I. He quotes many men regarding the "theory" of evolution. I can quote many men that deny evolution, but I prefer to quote the basis of all truth, the Bible.

He states that we do not look anything like God. On what does he base this opinion? If he is a Christian and believes the truth of the Bible, I refer him to Genesis 1:26-27: 26, "And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." 27, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."

Now I am not a language expert but when something is "in the image of" and "after a likeness" I am pretty sure it means they look alike.

Then he puts forth the theory that man was created at the bottom of the ladder of living creatures. But if you read Genesis 1:20-26, you will see that God created all the animals, birds and fish and then gave man the "rule" over them. How could he be beneath them and rule over them?

Mr. Bean gives all types of supposed facts that prove the evolution of man by the similarities of many of the other living creatures. I am an engineer and when I make a good design, I tend to use it many times over with some changes to suit the need. I believe God did the same. Man was a great design and God modified it as he created the other species to match the conditions.

Concerning Mr. Bean's belief in the theories of men, I refer him to 2 Timothy 4: 3-4: "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fable."

Which is "fable"? The Bible or Mr Bean's belief in man's theory? I chose the Bible.
