Evolution And Christianity Are Not Compatible

Proponents of Theistic Evolution claim that it is compatible with science.  Assuming science deals with probabilities and extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, Here are three reasons why evolution and Christianity are not compatible:

1)  "Living things are indeed wonderfully complex, but altogether within the range of a statistically powerful, entirely mechanical phenomenon."

2)  "- - - we are perfectly good animals, natural as can be and indistinguishable from the rest of the living world at the level of structure as well as physiological mechanism."

3)  "- - - although the natural world can be marvelous, it is also filled with ethical horrors: predation, parasitism, fratricide, infanticide, disease, pain, old age and death — and that suffering (like joy) is built into the nature of things.
