I am certain the cassowary is the modern day velociraptor. They scare the pants off me, but are fascinating in the same way velociraptors are fascinating.

Didnt read any replies. Replying only to the OP and not in response to anything anyone else may have said/questioned.
Evolution for me.
I dont believe in the 'story' about creation...Why? Well, you play chinese whispers and see how long it takes for the line to be completely changed. I cant believe that a story can go for that long and be twisted and formed into something that is soooo far from the original.

Examples in the animal kingdom would be that when trees in northern England got blackened with pollution, a species of moth changed from white to black. They didn't change overnight. Rather, the white ones got spotted easily by predators and eaten, so it became more common for black to breed with black. Over time they all became black, and they survived.
To me that's not perfect design - that's a species staying alive because it evolved. There are, of course, many species that didn't evolve and haven't survived too.

Evolution makes sense to me, can't comprehend creation!

Clothing, if we are taking the evolution past the cave man to when man started to use the land in some way? I believe those people would dress for more than warmth and again, clothes are a part of evolution of man, society. The bible takes us to man as we know man today. This is why I think evolution co-exists with the bible and God. Man needing to wear clothes and to feel shame was an evolutionary process, I don't believe it just happened. The story of Eve and the serpent I tae as a metaphor.
(sorry trying to type and concentrate with a baby, its not happening )

Nope - it happened all over the word. Not just in the Middle East. Same as 'Man' [in it's entirety] did not come from only the Middle East.
I agree The Bible may tell the story of the life in middle eastern society - and it has spread and been adapted throughout other socities. but it doesn't explain ALL of the world.
If you have another google.. look up 'Neolithic Revolution'
ETA> we don't NEED to feel shame. Shame is a social construct.
There ARE societies that don't wear clothes, they don't feel shame... and all is good in their little tribe.
Yes OUR society reinforces this thng that we need to be ashamed of our bodies, we really shouldn't.. but THAT is another thread...
