There has been an on going debate about creation and evolution for hundreds of years and there is multiple sides to each debate. I agree with the bible that we were created by God. Some of the following facts support my belief that creationism is more realistic than evolution. Creation shows the existence of a creator who has used his creative abilities, creating this world. Thus, apparent design in biology would constitute evidence for a Designer.It is a self-evident and universally recognized truth: concept and design require an intelligent designer. So, while recognizing design in biology is not based upon religious premise, it certainly has theological implications. Do we find apparent design in biology? Yes.
In fact, apparent design pervades the biologic realm. When we apply the general principles of detecting design to living creatures, we find it reasonable to infer the existence of a Creator. This opinion is one of many who have debated creation vs.
evolution.This is suggesting that a “greater being” God in this case has created the world in his image. This also is implying that if God didn’t make the heaves and the earth and people, then who or what did? Creation is also a concept that’s hard to grasp for many that’s why this is a hard debate to have. Evolution stresses the naturalistic (random, undirected) descent of all living creatures from a common ancestor who originally evolved from inorganic matter. Today, we know that mechanism to be deficient, even in light of genetic mutation.With the tremendous advances we’ve made in molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics over the past fifty years we’ve been exposed to a whole new dimension in living systems that was previously unknown.
Evolutionary biologists are now looking for a new mechanism, one that can overcome genetic constraints and other chemical-oriented barriers that have been identified in recent years. Until this mechanism is found, the theory of evolution (a theory which has enjoyed prominence in biological circles for over 100 years) simply lacks feasibility, and thus, credibility.This is talking about the fact that evolution has some credibility and yes there are facts to support it but not everything has facts to support it all, there’s a lot of interpretation to be had on both sides of this argument. To me this is more of a reason vs. religion argument. The popular media often portrays the creation vs.
evolution debate as science vs. religion, with creation being religious and evolution being scientific. Its a little different though because they both have their facts and they both have their own opinions they have formed, this debate is a like in ore ways than you think.The Bible often restates important points. As an example, the first four books in the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are all biographies of Jesus. Scholars have learned over time that these four “views” of Jesus give us a better understanding of Him than we would have had if only one account had been recorded. The same is true of the creation account in the first two chapters of Genesis.
Genesis 1 describes all the physical events of creation. Genesis 2 looks back at the creation of humans more closely.Genesis 2 may appear to be a little different from Genesis 1, leading some people to believe there is a mistake in there somewhere.
This is a problem caused by translation from the original Hebrew into English. Careful attention to the verb tenses in Hebrew and to the purpose of each chapter removes any apparent contradictions between the two. For example, Genesis chapter 2, verse 19 (Gen 2:19) uses the perfect tense, indicating finished actions regarding the creation of the animals. That is, the animals brought to Adam were created earlier, not created in Adam’s presence.Chapter 2 is a “look back” at the last half of chapter 1. This is a great example of how the bible does not in fact contradict it self as most people say.
The bible is a comprehensive book that takes time and energy to depict. You need to take the effort to read this book and understand all the “look backs” and realize it works in an order. The bible is not written as a bunch in non-sense stuck together everything is placed in a way to help us understand. Though all the different translations make it hard to always understand.
