Well, Genesis says that God created Adam out of the dust.

Nobody's. God is eternal, meaning he exists outside of time, so to ask who created God is a meaningless question.

True, and the stars is where I believe the dust came from. However if you start believing genesis as literal truth it precludes even the dust coming from the stars, and we have massive amounts of evidence saying that it does. As such it follows that genesis is not literal.

Amen, brother. 

John Polkingshore, a minister and quantum physicist, has written several books explaining how the apparent contradiction between science and religion exists only on the surface.

I believe that with science we have the how,but with religion we have the why.I myself am an aspie (one with Asperger's syndrome) whose "specialty subject" (as we like to call them) is science. All science. However, my love for God has produced a thirst for knowledge in the area of theology so great as to exceed the one for science, but the two live harmoniously in my head together. Most people have come to the conclusion "let there be light=big bang."
I have enough sense to believe that the universe wasn't created in just six days. When I hear or read "Let there be light" I imagine in my head God saying those words as "he" explodes the universe out from his being. All the galaxies and stars and nebulae... It's beautiful. I can't even listen to this song or it's album  (called "Ghosts upon the earth") without weeping! : www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NuVNN…  Last I checked, it had one of the few comment threads on youtube that isn't filled with absurdly horrible grammar and\or non-sequitur bigotry.

"In science we have been reading only the notes to a poem; in Christianity we find the poem itself."-- "Miracles," Ch. 14, by C.S. Lewis

What happened the Christians interpreted the Jesus Christ story the incorrect way? What if Jesus Christ is an allegorical representation about the stars giving up its life span to create humanity? Think about it.

Lee Strobel, The former editor of The New York Times, deepley investigated int the historical records of Jesus and wrote a book called "The Case for Christ" which shows that Jesus did in fact exist.

"Former editor of The New York Times", yeah like I'm going to take someone that used to write for big media as a legit source and seriously.
