I answered A because I really do believe in Science, Evolution and the Big Bang; however, it's wrong to think that it is either you choose God or Science as though they're two competing views when they are not. Science is about the natural world, it doesn't explain politics, morality, social interactions between humans, art, music or God.
God isn't a scientific subject; it is a philosophical one. The Bible isn't a scientific textbook nor was it meant to be. No serious Biblical scholar would tell you that it is, so the Bible is not concerned about scientific truths or the natural world, it is giving you instructions about spiritual truth and guidance. These truths can sometimes be told by means of the prevailing ideas about the world at the time in which they are told. Since the 5th century Austine of Hippo warned Christians about interpreting Genesis as some literal fact; yet Christians who want to force their own view on the historical text would rather say the Bible implies something when really it doesn't.
I'm no Christian/religious believer; I'm agnostic but I hate seeing these wrong ideas being propagated. I think we should be serious abut ideas, including the ones we don't believe.0

Although I'm a Catholic, I really don't believe in all that Jesus crap. It sounds more like a few men who had nothing to do decided to make a book about a something that never happened and then make a bunch of money out of it. You gotta agree on this one, religion is a huge business all on its own, building the churches, making them look as fancy as possible with all those stained glass windows... They used to collect money from the people for their local church, which, in my opinion, is rather ridiculous. I'd much rather believe in actual facts that have some sort of evidence instead of a fairy tale that has no proof whatsoever.0
