EVOLUTION REVEALS THE TRUTHS Evolution is a debatable issue and it will be argued for many years, because it is in contradiction with creationism. Evolution explains that all living creatures come from same ancestors and evolutionary change leads to new species. These species should be the fittest for the surroundings to survive and they continue to mutate. It is life or death struggle. However, creationism says that the world and living things was created by God.
Some of the concerns still creating controversy include matters dealing with how life began and evolved, relations and sex, and various research methods. Life’s beginnings and the way it evolved have two different points-of-view according to science and religion. The religious belief is the concept of creationism, that all things, including humans, were created and put on the earth by God. The scientific belief is that the universe was created by a concept called the Big Bang, which in simple terms was a giant explosion that created all of the planets, stars, living creatures, etc. Science also believes that humans were not around at the beginning of life, but that they later evolved from various animals after adapting adaptations to help better suit them to the environment.
Some believe in the evolution theory that science created human beings. Others believe in the creation theory; they believe in some sort of God or intelligent design created the earth and humans. Who knows the real truth? Why does this subject stir up so much controversy? There has always been much attention about our origins as people.
Kaitlyn Rozanas Debate about Human Origins Anthropology 1102 16 October 2013 Theistic Evolution For many years there have been debates, wars, and many deaths when discussing the origin of our world, our human species, and whether there is a bearded man in the sky that is in a higher power or if science trumps all. However, in the case of the Theistic evolution, the line that draws these sides as separate entities not only does not exist, it brings these two theories together as a whole, creating a different and more compelled religious stand point. Theistic evolution is the proposition that God is in charge of the biological process called evolution. God directs and guides the unfolding of life forms over millions of years. This type of evolution contends that there is no conflict between science and the Biblical book of Genesis which will cause uproar among the believers of both.
This shows that the body must have been made or created through intelligent design rather than the sluggish pace of evolution. Another being all in existence falling under specified complexity, this means that all objects and organisms have such complexity which is so great that they must have been specified only by God. Also they have been created in a specific way so it only works in the way that it was initially brought into existence, there is no other way of explaining this that through an intelligent designer. For example the human eye, manages to capture light that bounces off an object and making humans able to see. If any part of the eye were different the eye would no longer function the way as we know it and humans may no longer be able to see the way they do as we
Until the late eighteenth century, these were the only accounts we had of the origins of humans. 2. The Evolution Explanation a. During the eighteenth century, some philosophers began to challenge its belief in the individual, and the special creation of each life form. b. Charles Darwin (1809-82) and Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913), separately come up with the modern day theory of the biological evolution of species.
Justice of Creation Victor Frankenstein created a living, thinking, and intelligent creature, and with that comes certain responsibilities. Even though he should not have tried to “play God” and create someone that is the same, in all but physical appearance to other human beings. I’d like to discuss Victor creating the creature, the responsibilities that he should have accepted when he created him, and the consequences of the aforementioned decisions. First, Victor Frankenstein, or any other person on this earth at any time, has absolutely no right or power to create life. There is a relatively strong connection to God in this book and many people during this time period believed in God.
Young earth Old earth Liberty University Mr. David Gilhousen Jo Ann Head PHSC 210 Fall Introduction Knowledge of the past and present makeup of the universe solicits factorial seen evidence and faith based beliefs driven by scripture and belief systems. “Almost everyone living today takes for granted that the universe and earth are billions of years old. But that has not always been true and the number of people rejecting that idea today is increasing rapidly.” (Mortenson, 2003) Proving the existence or the non-existence of time creation is still relevant in today’s society. Scripture tells us but science shows us, accepting answers is primarily based on one’s belief system no
Kevin Morgan LCC 3302 The Effect of Darwin’s Theory on the Christian and Scientific Communities 570 It is well known that Darwin was not the biggest fan of religion. However, his general attitude toward the church was far from malicious. Darwin’s research was purely of scientific merit, and yet was perceived as an attack on the idea of creationism. The church took personal offense by his publications, and even retaliated with volumes of work discrediting Darwin. While his ideas were revolutionary at the time, Christianity has persisted for over a century, but has built a tolerance to the ideas of natural selection.
Charles Darwin was famous for his controversial theory that animals evolved by means of natural selection. He produced a book about his theory, implicating that humans were not especially created, but had evolved. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/historic_figures/darwin_charles.shtml) Darwin developed his theory of natural selection in 1837. Before this, it was generally believed that every species was specially created by God, and could not be altered. Up until his voyage on the HMS Beagle, Darwin, like all others, believed in a traditional Biblical creation of all life forms.
