Well, you see, your answer fails to convince. In the same way a person who claims to understand mathematics but disputes that 4 is the result of adding two and two fails to make a compelling in case in their own favour. In simple terms, the evidence for evolution is overwhelming. To the point at which the best defence creationists have now is "but it's just a theory", which ignores that theory in science =/= theory in the vernacular. It is simply not possible to have reviewed the evidence and formed the view that no, a capricious old jerk called God did it. You may have made a choice to embrace one viewpoint over another, and that's fine, but you need to scrape the veneer of legitimacy off that choice. You've applied it where it does not belong. But, I suspect I'm overcomplicating a situation. If you "believed" in evolution then the decision was more akin to picking a sporting team than, say, buying a car where a modicum of research is involved (assuming you're one of those people who thinks buying a pink car or an Alfa Romeo is a good idea). Again, an unconvincing argument. Did you grow up in a household where it was a given that Jesus was the son of God; that God created man and the universe, and that the only path to God was through Jesus?
