I admit I don't know the whole truth, but I'm definitely leaning towards evolution and would defend that anyday, becasue I definitely don't think the Christian way. Even if the world was created by the higher power I doubt "god" is anything like the Christians make him out to be.
Anyways, that's all what this debate is about. YOUR truth not THE truth, so you already knew the answers to these questions. So I donno what sparked your question. And yes in Catholic school and Bible school they never answer any questions.
