Thank you for reflecting my belief 100%. I am from South- Africa and I'm a 16-year old male in College grade 11. Most Christian South Africans believe in Creationism (earth made 6000 years ago in 7 days and so on). After a woman spoke to our School, in hall about a week ago, it became apparent that about 95% of the people in my school are creationists. Only one of my friends, my dad and a pastor I know share my belief (which I am now proud to call BioLogos Christianity). Though my friends and I agree on the existence of God., we strongly disagree on the creation of earth. I never say to my friends: "you are wrong!" I rather explain why I have a certain belief. We learn about evolution in biology and it proves God to me even more! Some see it as "fake" and "the devil’s work". All I really wanted to say is that I am happy to know that there are people in the world that share my belief. Thank you all for your hard work. God bless.
Sorry if my English grammar isn't so well. English is my second language. (:
