Answer for question 4464.

Do you believe in evolution? Why or why not? What are your thoughts on Creationism or other similar religiously-based origin theories?
I love to hear and read creation stories. There can't be to many to suit me and the more varied they are the better. Having to choose between science and Genesis is stiflingly narrow. Tribal and ethnic stories, science fiction stories, science stories, religious stories, philosophical stories,and my own imagination provide a treasure house of possibilities to choose from and speculations about how things might have come to be as there are. I understand that different stories serve different purposes. Some try to answer questions that maybe are answerable.
Other stories address unanswerable questions that we feel in our hearts must have answers. And some stories are just fun or meant to temporarily quench the curiosity of children.

Yes! I love creation stories! And wish so many of us humans hadn't forgot what a story is. Not that a story is a mereness: story is powerful. But a story is about meaning over and above anything else. Not about process or fact.
