The majority of people in this world believe that a spiritual being createdearth. In fact, “most religions and cultures believe the universe wascreated by a ‘creative hand,’ either a sky god or some other physicalobject” (Encarta 1).
Think of it, as a trial to see which will win,creation or evolution. It has been the most argued debate in all of history, butcreationism is more logical than evolution. To first understand what creation isabout, we have to know what creation is. The Bible defines creation as theaction by God that brought the universe and all its contents into being. TheBible also states, “God created great whales and every living creature thatmoveth, and so God created man in his own image, in the image of God created hehim; male and female created he them” (Genesis 1:21, 27). To Doug LaPointe,the author of Top Evidences against the Theory of Evolution, there are ninearticles of evidence pointing weaknesses in evolution, or strong points increation.
The first evidence is that there are no links between the fossilrecord and present times; therefore, there is nothing to show that evolutionactually happened. Second, that natural selection cannot advance an organism toa higher order. The third being that although evolutionists believe life justcame about, matter resulted from nothing, and humans evolved from animals, allof these are against scientific and natural understandings. Fourth, even thoughevolutionists present them as if they were, the hominids’ bones and skullrecords, for example the famous Lucy, the finds are unrevealing andinconsistent.
The fifth and sixth articles of evidence are the nine out of 12hominids that evolutionists use are really extinct apes, and the other three aremodern human beings and not part ape. This would conclude that all of the twelve’hominids’ are something other than hominids and are not half-human, half-ape. Evidence seven and eight show that natural selection has practical, social, andlogical inconsistencies. The last evidence says that the rock strata finds arebetter explained by a universal flood than by evolution, which would show yetmore proof in the Bible (LaPointe 1-2). Michael Behe, author of the recentbestseller Darwin’s Black Box, states, “I was amazed that people believe inevolution when there was this clear argument against it” (Behe 3).
At firstDarwinism was taught at schools, but there were so many flaws that these ideaswere turned down, and a different form of evolution was taught. The new form wasthen taught along with a type of scientific creation (Encarta 2). This showsthat schools feel that Darwin was wrong, and Darwin is evolution’s top scholar. In order to disprove a way of thinking we must first know what we are trying todisprove.
The definition of evolution is the complex process by which livingorganisms originated on earth and have been diversified and modified throughsustained changes in form and function (Encarta 2). Thomas Robert Malthus firststated that the human population was growing too fast for the food supply. This,he said, “Is regulated by disease, famine, and war” (Infopedia 1). Darwin applied this to animals and plants and came up with the theory ofevolution by natural selection. His theory stated that the children of a speciesintensely compete for survival. Those young that survive to produce the nextgeneration tend to be embodying favorable natural variations and thesevariations are passed on by heredity.
Therefore, each generation will improveadaptively over the preceding generations, and this gradual and continuosprocess is the source of the evolution of the species (Infopedia 1-2). Thenotion that populations of organisms can be transformed over generations intodescendant population of different kinds has been suggested repeatedly since theearly-recorded history of ideas, but if you trace all the species back to theirorigin, you would get one object. Now the real part of this argument is righthere. How did that one object come into being? It couldn’t have happened by merechance. It did not always exist so there had to be nothing before it.
If therewas nothing before it, how was it created? Now some would like to say that itwas created by the Big Bang, but if you look at the Big Bang theory, it issuggesting that the one object did not just appear that it was created by theBig Bang. This is a contradiction because the Big Bang is supposed to have just’happened’ (Encarta 1). The other contradiction to this statement is that by thelaws of science matter has to come from other matter, but the Big Bang theoryused by scientists states that the first matter just happened at the Big Bangand came from nothing. Now that we have the facts, we should be able to look atit from an atheistic point of view, and be able to easily crush the argumentthat the earth might have just happened and evolved into present day. Thisargument without a doubt shows proof of a Creator. There had to be a Creatorbecause even by the scientific or atheistic point of view, it is not possiblefor something to come from nothing.
So that something, that existence came fromGod, the Creator. BibliographyBefe, Dr. Michael. “The Evolution of a Skeptic. ” The Real Issue. –: Leadership U.
