The wording of this poll is vague. A more appropriate question might be, "Do you agree with the Big Bang theory?", as even if it was proven incorrect it would not disprove 'science' (which is merely logical thinking applied to the world around us) or prove that a supernatural being willed everything into existance. Personally, I find it doubtful the universe was created by a God. Until I find some logical reason to reconsider that, I will maintain my belief that the universe is as it is now due to natural processes, although the exact nature of many of them remains uncertain. I don't know enough about the Big Bang theory to comment on its validity, though.

As C pointed out, the question is extremely vague and not helpful in the least. First, it is possible (although I don't believe it to be the case) that a god exists and uses science as a means of interacting with the natural world.
Secondly, the Big Bang theory says that space-time of the universe as we know it began, not the earth (which formed billions of years later). This theory is not without good evidence to support it, which is why it is generally accepted within the scientific community.

I have to theories. 1. There was no actual beginning and that time and space just wraps around in a continuous loop but I'm not a very science knowledgable person. 2. A giant pig threw up everywhere and we are but a speck of green stuff in the river of puke.

BusterMan Zero - Way to generalize. Not ALL Christians say that. And you can't really say "Bull" until its proven that there IS life on other planets, for that matter. Just a thought.
As far as creation theories go, the Big Bang is rather poor. It explains how the status quo of the universe came into being, yes, but... where did the little ball of matter come from? It doesn't explain this. Thus, it can't really be included as a creation theory at all.

Probably not religion. Christians say Earth is the only planet with life. Bull.
Only until there's proven to be life on other planets. Will that ever be discovered? Who knows. Will we ever get off this planet and find out ourselves? Who knows? Can we truly prove anything, or is it all based on faith and belief? I'll leave you to think about that.
Edit: btw Luey, the bible did mention Dinosaurs. I don't remember where though. It also gave accounts of other creatures...
