    that was very conservative on everything; no instrumental music, no dancing, etc.

    I went to the denominational summer camp a couple of years which was held at the bible college. Generally we recreated in the afternoon and had chapel and bible study in the mornings.

    Evolution came up in one of those classes. The teacher, who also taught at the bible college, had a reasonable explanation of evolution based on Genesis.

    He explained that the language in Genesis 1:2 "and the earth was without form and void" was counter to the belief that God does not "create" imperfection. He went on to state that the earth could have existed and its form destroyed and rebuilt over millions of years between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.

    I am not say I bought his explanation but it shows that not all christian fundamentals have a problem resolving evolution with biblical belief.
