Real debate about evolution is morality

Evolution is not about science - it is about morality. When people refuse to believe the truth, they believe lies. Molecules-to-man evolution, macroevolution, believes that in the beginning, nothing became something, and after a long period of time, non-life became life. Then, after even more time, a single molecule became the complex organisms known as humans.
The other alternative is that the Bible is true, and "in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."
Science is about discovering the wonders of God's creation like the complexity of even our smallest cells, not figuring out hypothetical ways creation came into being without God. The morality part is that if there is a creator, then we, the created, are subject and accountable to Him. The complexity of this accountability is simplified in that we are to love God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our mind and with all our strength. We are to love our neighbors as ourselves. To do this, we need to be forgiven of our sins and given His nature by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Creator.
Evolution cannot explain the nature and character of God within us. It cannot explain reason, logic, creativity, kindness, goodness, faith, hope and the greatest of these - love.
