Many people have asked the question, where did we come from? According to creationists a higher power, or “God” created the universe. Some believe that “God” started off the universe and let it form by itself. Others think that “God” has been in creation since the beginning. However evolution is a completely different way of thinking, and is very complex. Evolution is the study of the gene change in a population from one generation to another, and is the decent of different spices through time. However there are always on going arguments about how the universe was created and how humans came into existence. I will try and explain the pros and cons of the theories of creation and evolution
Many creationists’ theories come from the Bible. Genesis 1:1 “in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.’ The Bible talks about God creating the universe in six days and resting on the seventh day. I those six days he created day and night, water and land, vegetation, and animals, and then he created two beings he called them Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve then sinned against God and the world became corrupt. The world became so corrupt that God flooded the whole earth. However God saved Noah and his family. God told Noah to rebuild an ark, and take two of each animal with them to rebuild the population. In Genesis 8:4-5 it says "And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day o...

While researching this paper I have learned that there is no concrete evidence proving creationism or evolutionism. I think that if creations and evolutionist combined their theories with one another, they maybe come up with a more concrete theory and possibly prove how the world was started. After researching I personally think that parts of evolution and creationism can be true. However for the last seventeen years of my life I have attended private Christian schools, and my belief is that God did in fact create the heavens, earth, and man, all things change because of complex systems.

- Evolution and Darwin In a society based on survival of the fittest, adaptation and evolution are the keys to success. If there is a hurdle that a species cannot conquer as it is, it will then do everything it must to overcome it, even if that means change. Throughout time, evolution has helped us to thrive in the toughest of times. The human species is at the top of its class, overthrown by no other, but what happens when a species begins to encounter hurdles within its own society. Can the human species overthrow itself, making a new kind of human.... [tags: Fittest Science Religion Competition Essays]

- Humanity became fascinated with the idea of evolution with the work of Charles Darwin and the Scientific Revolution. People began hunting for fossils that would prove that man had an ape derived ancestry (Weiner, 1955). After various years of searching, a piece of physical evidence was found in England that was said to confirm the theory of evolution (Weiner, 1955).This confirmation came from Charles Dawson’s discoveries from 1908, that were announced publicly in 1912 (Thackeray, 2011). Dawson was believed to have found the fossil remains of the “missing link” between ape and human evolution, the reconstructed skull of Piltdown man (Augustine, 2006)....

- Introduction It is commonly thought today that the theory of evolution originated from Charles Darwin in the nineteenth century. However, the idea that species mutate over time has been around for a long time in one form or another. Therefore, by Darwin’s time the idea that species change from one type into another was by no means new, but was rejected by most because the proponents of evolution could not come up with a satisfactory mechanism that would explain this change. But how did Darwin come up with an acceptable theory of evolution, and how did Darwin’s proposal of natural selection impact the theory of evolution.... [tags: Natural Selection, Evolution]
