By all means, explain the logical process that led you away from evolution.
A fellow customer asked "Did ... did you just ... buy an ice cream cone for YOUR DOG?"
The woman held up the cone defensively and cried in indignation "Not a WHOLE scoop!" As if it were the size of the scoop that was the issue, not the fact that she did it at all.
It's been years, and that's always the image that pops into my head when a conservative politician gets called out on their bigotry — the politicians who think it's the scale of a moral injustice rather than the nature of a moral injustice that makes it unjust. I just picture them holding up a melting ice cream cone and crying, indignantly, "I don't want to deny ALL rights to ALL people ALL the time! I just want to deny SOME rights to SOME people SOME of the time!"
As for the choice thing. It is a choice. 100 percent. One can believe in every form of science. Evolution, big bang, everything and still believe in a god. Why? Because they choose to. You are stating your opinion on a subject as if it's scientific law. It's not.
Modern cultivars of wheat, maize, bananas, all cruciferous vegetables, and most other crops were the result of low-tech genetic engineering through artificial selection and hybridization to create appealing (and patentable) varieties.
Golden Promise barley, now considered a classic and prized varietal for making beer and whisky, was born from a batch of seeds that were placed next to a nuclear reactor to encourage mutations.
But according to — I'll be blunt here — scientifically-illiterate people, high-tech engineering at the genomic level results, by definition, in "Frankenfoods" that are likely to kill you.
Because somehow, I guess, the genome knows whether a genetic change was random, low-tech, or high-tech — and if it was high-tech, uses it for evil.
