Creation vs. Evolution in the Public Schools - Despite great efforts to convince the opposing side, a battle still brews amongst creationists and evolutionists over the beginning of life and the universe, but neither opinions’ palpability can be firmly upheld through scientific manners. Since science can only prove hypotheses that are testable and based on current observations, neither creation nor evolutionary concepts can be proven with irrefutable evidence. However, regardless of the inability to prove either concept, most public school systems promote evolution as a scientific fact....   [tags: Creation vs. Evolution Essays]

Supernovas and The Creation of New Stars - Supernovas are extremely powerful explosions of radiation. A supernova can give off as much energy as a Sun can within its whole life.

Here are some of the argued points regarding Creationism, summarize from the Not So Deep Thoughts website (Pettit): I. The Problem of Creationism Stated as a logical dilemma A. Source of Evidence 1.

Maori Myth, 'The Creation Cycle' - The Maori myth is a Polynesian story about the creation of the universe which according to Rosenberg was different from other creation myths because it begins with nothing and then progresses through a process of “nonbeing to thought to the creation of the universe and human beings” (351). Even though it may be different because it goes from “nonbeing to thought” instead of nothingness to a spoken word or action, it has many similarities to other creation myths in how it explains the origins of the Gods and how each one represents a natural event or aspect of nature and humanity....   [tags: Polynesian story]

The human eye is a marvel of biology, and its immense complexity, beauty and perfection defy explanation even by the most devoted supporters of evolutionary theory, which can leave us with only the fact of God’s existence and insight: “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them”...   [tags: evolution, God]
