Creationists however, are working on a biblical timeframe that show that the earth is only hundreds of thousands of years old (Hindson & Caner, 2008). No comparisons can be made between the purpose of identity in Christianity and secular humanism. Secular humanism states that man is no different from plants or animals because we all evolved from the same bacteria. The bible however, makes it clear that man, unlike animals, is made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26). God stated that man would multiply, subdue the earth, and have dominion over animals (Genesis 1:28).
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them”, Genesis 1:26-27. These verses clearly show us that we were created in the image of God, since the bible has clearly shown us that we were made after the likeness of God this then proves the theory of evolution by Charles Darwin to be wrong which suggest that man came from being baboons and later own they developed. According to Ellen G White in her book Patriarch and Prophets commenting on these two verses she says, “Here is no mystery, there is no ground for the supposition that man was evolved by slow degrees of development from the lower forms of animal or vegetables life. Such teachings lower the great work of the Creator to the level of man’s narrow, earthly
Christians therefore question if men are superior to women, as God made him first and Eve was only created for Adam, out of his own body. However it could be said that men and women are of equal as Adam was incomplete without Eve, and Eve would not have been created without Adam, also in Genesis one, both man and women are created to reflect the image of God. Another theory is the women could in fact be superior to men as in the first Genesis things that are created last
The gods created the heaven, hell, sun, and the moon. With the belief of faith the understanding of the divine drama of the beginning is Genesis would be hard for one to get, there are questions that still remain unanswered like how long did it take the creation of earth? Or was God's days the same as ours or even longer?. Then God took Adam the man and eve the woman and placed them in Eden to take care of it and commanded them saying “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Genesis 2:16-17. The story goes on where the devil known as the serpent, trick eve to eat from the tree and makes her convince Adam to do the same.

Many cultures believed that gods or goddesses created life. For example within the Christian religious tradition, it is believed that organisms were created by an almighty god. Due to the lack of scientific material, scientists are unable to test this theory of life, leading them to seek answers from a naturalist explanation. Up until the mid- nineteenth century, naturalists held onto the idea of spontaneous generation. This theory suggested that life was created out of nothing.
Euleeta White THEO 201-B03 July 5, 2013 BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW CORE COMPETENCY Some people question God’s involvement in His creation even though the bible teach that He is creator of the universe. There are claims that He is not actively involved, nor is He in control of anything going on in the world due to its fallen state. However, God is still in control of everything that sways in the wind, or creeps on the ground. He has not abandoned His creation. The Bible speaks contrary to these claims.
The Natural World God created the natural world through His word. This shows the nature of God as all powerful and His word as power. When God spoke, the universe and everything in it came into existence. This we know because the Bible is the word of God that it is not written by human knowledge, but by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Romans 1:20 says “that the creation has been seen and understood because of God’s invisible qualities, divine nature and His eternal power so that men may not have an excuse.” It, therefore, follows that God is seen through His creation.
The same idea is shown through the genesis creation stories when God throws Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden. In Christian belief, God created the world out of nothing. The idea of God creating the universe out of nothing is referred to as Creatio Ex nihilo. However, there are some hints in the earliest writings of the Bible that God shaped pre-existing unformed objects. To many people today, the idea of creation ex nihilo is appealing because it fits in with the idea of the universe and time, all beginning at the big bang.
Each day, God added another element to create the world; the sixth day was when humans were created, “And towards the end of the sixth day, God put a divine soul into a body which He made of earth and clay(Chabad)”In Christianity, Genesis 1:27 stated, “ So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them(Bible).” This creation of man occured on the sixth day of the Creation of the World. In Islam, there are multiple theories of how man came to be, where one actually says that humans derived from water. This indirectly relates to evolution, as it agrees with the theory of evolving due to inheritable characteristic ( aquatic life to land
