If the question was posed as to what is the debate between creationism vs. evolution consist of, the thought that it is ‘“God did it” vs. “Natural processes did it,”’ (Scott, 2004) may arise. Science cannot absolutely prove or disprove Creation or Evolution. Yet scientist and the remainder of society use creationism and evolution to prove our existence. Creationist believe in the Christian account of the origin as recorded in Genesis. Creationism is the belief that statements such as “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (NIV) found in Genesis 1:1 and also “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (NIV) found in John 1:1. Evolution is the belief that everything just changed over time. It is the study of humans having evolved from cavemen to what we are today. The most recent Creationism and Evolution debate between Bill Nye and Ken Ham was found to have caused an uproar online. One comment brought up by a fellow commenter named Richard Arthur;
As a Christian I will say this: My faith does not require me to believe in the age of the earth as outlined in the Bible. Christ commanded me to love and that is where all Christians need to focus. Discussing how many fairies can dance on the head of a pin is a distraction. (Chappell, 2014)
Founder of our school, Regent University Pat Robertson, who believes that Ken Ham presented viewers with flawed analysis (Chappell, 2014). According to this online article found in The Two-way Robertson stated;
Anyone who is in the oil business knows he's drilling down, 2 miles, 3 miles underground, you're coming into all these layers that were laid down by the dinosaurs, And we have skeletons of dinosaurs that go back like 65 million years. And to say that it all came around 6 thousand years ago is nonsense. (Chappell, 2014)
The constant debate of evolution versus creationism encompasses a repetitive cultural, political, and religious conflict about the origins of the Earth, of humanity and of other life.
In 1859 Charles Darwin published his controversial yet worldly accepted book “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection. It was not until then that evolution had a scientifically credible backdrop to it, in this out coming it became a field of study. Although a rather successful discovery, Darwin’s’ theory of evolution had many open flaws.
A theory such as evolution can only be disproven. Proof of anything only truly exist in the subject of mathematics, and at this point it is evident that there is no math in the subject of evolution. Evolution cannot be proven only disproven, therefore whether it is true or not merely based on how much evidence can accumulate in its favor that we get extremely confident in its existence.
Many people will believe that evolution is beneficial to mankind while those who side more with creationism will not. It is understood yet incomprehensible as to why people that think if we are similar to something at some...
