I used to be an anti-evolution creationist, but now that I have studied a bit more I realize that evolution is plausible and compatible with religion. Have any of you experienced this change recently?

I don't think evolution is plausible nor do I think it's compatible with religions, specifically 'the big 3'. I would love to know what you find plausible in evolution.

1. There are hundreds if transitional forms in the fossil record.
2. The fossil record does have gaps, but what we have overwhelmingly confirms the evolutionary process.
3. Complex things like human eyes could have evolved in the available time.

God could have very well used evolution as a means of creating plants and animals. Wouldn't it make more sense that he would have used natural processes rather than snapping his fingers and *poof*, plants and animals appear?

Good to hear.

If you've enjoyed your wandering so far here's a puzzle that you might like:

1) When you next get a flu shot, or catch the flu as the case may be, you will likely be exposed to novel forms of influenza. Like most human pathogens, influenza is constantly mutating so the variety you are exposed to likely didn't exist a year or two ago.

2) Your body will respond by producing antibodies, amongst other defenses.

3) Antibodies are proteins. Five different proteins in this case.

4) Proteins are coded for by DNA.

So where did you get DNA that codes for proteins that reacts to antigens that didn't exist until a year or two ago?

No spoilers the rest of you!

Lol. At least you could have given some wikipedia tags, or no one will ever solve that "puzzle". Here is a useful and obvious one: antibody!

Seriously? There were all of three key words in what I said. Two minutes on Wikipedia would find you the answer.
