5. When I was a little girl in catholic grade school we discussed this
in religion class on several occassions. WE were taught that the theory of evolution and that of creationism are NOT mutually exclusive. Of course they taught that God created the world and everything in it, but there is NOTHING that proves what the first man & woman was like. Tey very well could have looked and acted exactly like we see an ape looks today, and the human species evolved into what we now call man & woman humans.

That was more than 50+ years ago, but I've never forgotten it. I always wonder why so many people still argue that you can only believe in one theory or the other?
