Critique #2: Religion and creationism vs science and evolution.
As modern humans, we have evolved over time in order to survive the harsh conditions in which we lived in more than 30,000 years ago. We are the only remaining species of homosapiens, a sub-category of great apes known for their erect posture and bipedal locomotion. Archeologists along With other scientific disciplines such as anthropologists, ethelogists, and many others have actual Evidence that support human evolution dating back as far as 14 million years ago. However, the Creationist theory states that god created everything, including the universe in their present form. They Disregard human evolution and base their beliefs entirely on the book of genesis as to how we came to Be. While Creationists believe that created everything in 6 days, evolutionists believe we have adapted according to our environment and developed into the humans we are today,
Evolution is the progress of change in the characteristics of biological populations over Multiple generations. Evolutionists have proof that back up their theories of our early ancestors starting With the first fossils which were discovered in Africa. These fossils show lower location of the foreamen Magnum, which was an indicator that these species practiced bipedal locomotion, they were a transitional Descendant from early apes into hominids. The discovery of many other species such as Lucy, and the Taung Child, prove their theories of human evolution. The out of Africa model is also consistent with the fossils found is several regions. The model explains the origins of modern humans backed up by a study of present-day mitochondrial DNA, combined with evidence based on physical anthropology. Based on facts and theories that are consistently being proven, one cannot dismiss them and possibly believe that “God” created everything as it is today....
...of science vs. religion there has been no issues more hotly debated than that of evolutionvs. creationism. The issue is passionately debated since the majority of evidence is in favor of evolution, but the creation point of view can never be proved wrong because of long standing religious beliefs. Human creation is seperated into three simple beliefs; creation theory, naturalistic evolution theory, and theistic evolution theory. The complexities of all three sides create a difficult dilemma for what theory to support among commom people, religious or non-religious.
The theories of human evolution tend to always cause a heated dispute in modern American society. Each theory presents its own evidence proving its acceptance, but lacks enough evidence to prove the other theories incorrect. All the theories that attempt to explain human existence fall under the categories of creation theory, naturalistic evolution theory, and the theistic evolution theory. The creation theory explains that a certain God, or God's created the humans, and evolution does not exist. The naturalistic evolution theory states that evolution is driven by purely natural forces, and is not controlled by any input from a god, goddess, or multiple deities. The theistic evolution is a mixture of both creation...
For years, there has been the argument whether or not evolution or creationism was more probable. Creationists like John D. Morris has “called attention to the fact that small changes do not lead to true evolution.” (Morris) Yet, famous evolutionists such as Richard Dawkins always asks, “Do you seriously mean to tell me you believe that all life was created within a week?” (Dawkins) when creationists try to explain that the World was brought to existence in 7 days. Evolution exists because there is hard evidence, such as fossils and petrified impressions that the world slowly came to be over millions of years.
Lawrence Krauss, an American physicist and cosmetologist, works hard to decrease the influence of superstition and religious beliefs in society. He implies that “anyone who disagrees with the methodological naturalism (scientific method) is thereby disagreeing with science.” (Krauss) In his book A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing, Krauss debates over the proposition that something cannot just come from nothing which is used as a reasoning by creationists for their creator. Krauss also complains how teaching students Science vs Religion in school is wrong because “it assumes there are two sides and that there is a debate.” (Krauss)
Richard Dawkins provides solid evidence that...
Many people have their different opinions on how the world came to be. In some cases, people think that the world came to existence from what we call The Big Bang Theory, and others think it was The Almighty God that created the world. I will begin to explain what each is, the origin they came from and their evidence to support their own explanation of how the world was created.
What is evolution? Well,evolution can be a difficult concept for people to come to terms with, especially if they do not have much experience with life sciences. Unfortunately, there are too many examples of people who do not understand any of it with many of these people tries to criticize evolution while promoting creationism. Evolution is not a minor matter; it is, in fact, the cornerstone of all modern biology. What is creationism? Like evolution, creationism can have more than one meaning. At its most basic, creationism is the belief that the universe was created by The Almighty God. In some cases, it even is stated that creationism is someone who believes in a god who is absolute creator of heaven and earth, out of nothing, by an act of free will.
Many might say that the origins of the evolution came to terms that the universe, with all it contains (space, time,...
Tonight I am going to talk about CreationismVsEvolution. Do you know that 800 million people have died in religion’s wars?.
1. The creation–evolution controversy is a recurring dispute about the origins of the Earth, humanity, life, and the universe.
2. The creation-evolution controversy began in Europe and North America in the late 18th century when new interpretations of geology were demonstrated in the fossil geological sequence prompted early ideas of evolution.
In this speech I’m going to talk to you about 3 important topics.
1. The Creation by the hand of God.
2. The origin of species and natural selection by Darwin.
3. A combined view of the creationism and evolution.
* Transition 1
In the first place, let’s talk about the creation by the hand of God.
The Creationism is the religious belief that life, the Earth, and the universe are the creation of a supernatural being. All made in the image and likeness of God and explains the facts based on the assumption of a supernatural, completed process.
* Transition 2
Also, I'll speak of Darwin's theory. The evolution by natural selection, it’s when more offspring are produced than can possibly survive. When members of a...
...Creationismvs. Evolution: The Three Different View Points

Creationismvs. Evolution: The Three Different Viewpoints
Scientific facts found in paleontology, biology, geology, and astronomy, pose strong evidence for Evolution making it seem like the only logical answer as to how life evolved. The ideas found in “The Book of Genesis” have made great controversy of whether Creationism is true, or if we should solely rely on the scientific facts of Evolution. In the history of science vs. religion there has been many issues on the debate of Evolutionvs. Creationism. This debate happens because the majority of evidence is in favor of Evolution, but because Creationism is based on religious beliefs it is hard to prove it wrong. Although there are many different beliefs and ideas on human creation, it is narrowed down into three theories: Creation Theory, Naturalistic Evolution Theory, and Theistic Evolution Theory. All three sides create a dilemma for humans, religious and non-religious, as to which theory to support because of their many differences. Each theory is unique in providing its own evidence proving its validity, but lacks enough evidence to prove the other theories...
...Evolution and Creationism
Thesis: "Acceptance of Creation is growing in spite of overwhelming evidence proving Evolution."
I. Acceptance of Creation is growing in spite of overwhelming evidence proving Evolution There is no easy resolution for whats true and evolution or creationism. It is a complex topic with profound scientific, religious, educational, and criticism. How can a student or parent come to grips with this issue? Evolutionvs. Creationism provides a badly needed, comprehensive, and balanced introduction to the many facets of the current debates about what should be taught in a classroom or in reality itself. Evolution relies on scientific facts while creationism clings on biblical beliefs. But the legal and educational basis for its teaching, and the various religious points of view is what puzzles todays classrooms and peoples beliefs. Just as important are the resources that we learn in life, people have the right to question the controversy of creationism and evolution.

...” This is an argument that has been fought for many years. Although there are several ideas, society mainly argues over two of them. The first idea is that man was created by God during his creation of the universe. This is the idea of creationism. It is supported by many religious people. Creationism is supported by religion. The second way that humans could have originated is through a process called evolution. Evolution is a theory proposed by scientists to explain the origin of all species. Because both explanations are theories, neither can be proven right or wrong. To make a decision on which theory is correct, people must choose either religion or science.
The first theory about the origin of man is called creationism. Creationism is taking the literal meaning of the Bible. This theory is supported throughout the world by many religions. Creationism is the theory that God created the universe and its inhabitants in six days. Because creation occurred long ago, the length of a day is undefined. In the language of Hebrew, a day could have been twelve hours, twenty-four hours, or an epoch. If the length was an epoch, creation could stretch back over billions of years (Stencil 759). The information to support creationism comes from the Bible. The Bible is not considered a science book, but many consider it to be scientifically correct....
Evolution alongside Creationism School
In the essay “Why Evolution should be taught in public school” by Laura Kahn. According to Kahn, we need to educate the next generation of scientists on understanding how microbes develop and change to give them the tools to develop treatment against antibiotic resistant bacteria emerging viruses, and other deadly microbes. As she learned from her time in medicine, she recognizes the necessity of learning evolution to develop treatments in this rapid microbial environment. Unfortunately, certain aspects of society insist that religious doctrine be taught instead of evolution. According to a 2005 Harris poll, a majority of U.S citizens believe in creationism. Another survey show that two-thirds of U.S citizen believe creationism should be taught alongside evolution. Mrs. Kahn believed if we fail to teach science in public schools we would become scientifically illiterate. Therefore, we need to remain vigilant that our children receive a good science education to further enhance human understanding, and a good science education includes learning about evolution.
In the nineteenth century, during the “Spontaneous generation” scientists and physicians were unprepared in developing strategies against infectious killing diseases. Until French chemist Louis Pasteur convince...
