Science has NEVER taught that, because God has nothing to do with science.
Furthermore, science as a discipline did not exist for all of those 2000
years, but emerged as a product of the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

You wouldn't know the theory of evolution if it bit you.

"Human beings have developed over millions of years from less advanced forms
of life" is a reasonable statement of the theory of evolution.  Any role of
God is irrelevant to the theory, so you can believe whatever you want about
God, but if you accept the above quote, you are accepting evolution.

It is not.  

You are a rejection of humanity.

False, because natural selection says NOTHING about how life was created.

What makes YOU the authority on what the theory of evolution says, and not
the evolutionary scientists themselves?  THEY say that the role of God is
irrelevant to whether it is the theory of evolution.  YOU are WRONG!

Lets see the words where Darwin himself says that God did NOT do it.
