Can science and religion cope with one another? Creationism vs Evolution is not a battle of science vs the Bible, but it is a battle of God’s word vs man’s word. In the creation vs evolution debate and controversy over scriptural authority, a great part of the debate may move toward becoming more clear if writers would cautiously give perusers exact meanings of vocabulary.
What is evolution? The definition of evolution is the change in the characteristics of a species over several generations and relies on the process of Natural Selection. This emergent idea was discovered by Charles Darwin. Charles Darwin accumulated the theory of Darwinism (a theory of biological evolution) from the study of Natural Selection and Adaptation. As Charles Darwin went to the Galapagos Islands, he found various different types of finches that fluctuated from island to island, which is ultimately what helped him to establish his theory of evolution. His observations incorporated that members of a population often vary in their inherited traits and that all species can produce more offspring than the environment can support; however, many of these offspring fail to survive and reproduce. From these observations, Darwin developed some interferences with his theory. The interferences included that individuals whose inherited traits give them a higher probability of surviving and reproducing in a given environment tend to leave more offspring than other individuals and that this unequal ability of individuals to survive and reproduce will lead to the accumulation of favorable traits in the population over generations.
What is creationism? Creationism is the belief that the universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation, as in the biblical account, rather than by natural processes such as evolution. Creationists believe that God is the creator of all forms of life. Creationists contend that the possibility of evolution must stay speculative for the simple reason that no one has ever observed evolution transpire. Creationists reject such logical realities, such as evolution, to a certain extent since they do not acknowledge proof drawn from common procedures that they consider to be inconsistent with the Bible.
“For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.” (Hebrews 3:4) For me personally, hence I am a Christian, I 100% support Creationism. I support creationism because I just find it hard to believe that every living thing that we as humans see could have evolved from one tiny cell that just began making species. I also can not agree with the Big Bang theory, and how some people believe that everything we see just appeared after some spontaneous bang that happened all of a sudden. To me, none of these theories make any sense. I guess since I am a Christian I am highly aware of how great and powerful God really is, so I have no doubt that fulfilling the job of being the creator of everything could be anyone other than God himself. Also, who am I to try and prove teachings and preaching of the Lord in the book of the Bible wrong? I am nowhere near worthy enough to do such a thing as to try and prove the Bible and all its wisdom amiss. In that, I conclude by saying that many people have their own opinions on what they think created all living things, whether they believe in evolution or creationism, but what which will you choose to believe?
