      I definitely believe that the theory of evolution is correct. You can still believe in evolution and be religious though! Lots of people see evolution as just another amazing part of the world.

      Evolution is a really amazing idea. We use it in computing to inspire a lot of ways of solving problems, too.

      Yup I believe in evolution – I’ve actually seen it happen with the bacteria in my lab! (Bacteria multiply really quickly so we can see many generations in a short period of time)

      Some religious viewpoints do support evolution – as Mike said, you can believe in evolution and still believe in a god.
