    Although these terms might sound oxymoronic:

    Some Christians accept evolution.

    Some atheists believe in the existence and teachings of a completely human Jesus.

    tbh not believing in evolution is a weird fundy thing that america exported to the rest of the world. Looking back at some of the key evangelicals of 100 or 125 years ago, there were many who accepted evolution.

    Theistic Evolution isn't an oxymoron, it's the primary view among Christians. The Fundamentalist movement created this artificial opposition to evolutionary theory in the 20th Century in order to combat liberalism and support Biblical inerrancy. They have to believe Genesis is literally true, since the rest of the Bible rests on that foundation for them. Thus if Evolution says Genesis is not literal, it must be the work of Satan.

    There is absolutely no conflict between Evolution and Christianity except among those who are in denial about what it is.
