Can God and Darwin co-exist? The constantly mounting collection of evidence for evolution by natural selection is almost impossible to ignore. However, there is a neo-creationist school of thought, called "intelligent design," attempting to modernize the concept of a God to fit the challenge presented by a Darwinian explanation of life. Proponents of this theory, such as Michael Behe, claim that the cellular structures and pathways in living organisms possess "irreducible complexity," meaning that minus any one component, they become functionless. This implies that these components could not have evolved in a step-by-step process, but would all have to be present simultaneously.
This view is completely contrary to the belief in the existence of God's natural creation . The biggest mistake of those who believe that the theory of evolution does not contradict the fact of creation is the notion that the theory of evolution is simply the assertion that living things came into being through a process of evolution from one form to another . Therefore , they say : " Is not nothing wrong if God created all living things through evolution from one form to another form ; what's wrong with rejecting it ?

Thus Ritschl was an extremely influential theologian, though many question how positive that influence may have been. Ritschl’s Theology Ritschl’s theology was greatly affected by the philosophers of his time. Immanuel Kant had declared that the mind was incapable of understanding anything more than what could be experienced sensorially or was beyond ordered reason and logic. Similarly, Ritschl was influenced by the Tübingen school of theology, which he came to firmly oppose. Tübingen theology was extremely skeptical about Christianity, yet also promoted mysticism.
In the creation story, the message there is not that God created everything in just a week. That’s not what we should focus on; we should focus on the message that there is a God who created us, who created everything from nothing. The Evolution Creationist believes that the bible contains ancient science. It shows that there is a connection between science and God. They are saying that a God builds or guides through science; there is a natural revelation.
Evolution vs. Creationism Abstract In the history of science vs. religion there have been no issues more intensely debated than evolution vs. 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 religious belief. Human creation breaks down into three simple beliefs; creation theory, naturalistic evolution theory, and theistic evolution theory. The complexities of all three sides create a dilemma for what theory to support among all people, religious and non-religious. Evolution vs. Creationism The theories of human evolution may always cause a heated dispute.
On the other hand, the ideas of creation science is derived from the conviction of most Abrahemic religions that God created the universe-including humans and other living things-all at once in the relatively recent past. Creationists say that creatures started out as distinct and separate organisms when God created them and they do not believe that organisms change into complete differently and distinct animals through evolution. For example, Creationists do not believe that single-celled organisms evolved into more complex plants and animals, finally evolving into Homo Sapiens. Even though creationism is not a scientific theory, Creationists are using scientific evidence in supporting their argument that Darwinism can not be proven scientifically based on the fact that Darwinism goes against creationism. Besides criticizing evolution, Creationists are seeking scientific evidence of their own, to support the creation account in Genesis.
Even if Darwin's theory of evolution is true, perhaps this only gives insight into God's nature. Perhaps He is humble enough to create and allow His creations to continue as they will. Perhaps He created natural selection. The scientific theories that have been developed and have been said to kill God do not necessarily lead to the conclusion that no God exists.
