The Origin Of Species, By Charles Darwin

Better Essays
For billions of years, it has been believed that “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”, according to Genesis 1:1 (ESV). This concept is referred to as creationism. Bestowed by the encyclopedia, Creationism is the religious belief that the universe and life originated from specific acts of divine creation, or that God created the Earth and all things on it. In 1859, however, Charles Darwin published his theory in a book titled On the Origin of Species, on accord of Ker Than. A theory that just begun stating that organisms were thought to have adapted has evolved into different organisms developed other concepts. One of which is the theory that animals millions of years ago, such as apes, chimps and monkeys, have developed into humans. We, along with others all around the world, have questioned how we have evolved from monkeys/ chimps/ apes if they are both still around. Why haven’t all evolved if in fact Charles Darwin is correct? These questions have led us to researching this topic. Though Darwin’s controversial theories have gone on since his book 's publication, the theory of Creationism has lingered since the beginning of time.

Moving forward, Evolution, also known as Darwinism, is the process of different living organisms thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms. A man by the name of Charles Darwin has been trying to contradict the ideas of Creationism all of his career. Trying to succeed, he performed many experiments and tests for answers. He initiated his work by using the adaptations of smaller animals. For example, on Darwin’s study on Finches, he theorized that they have adapted to survive their changing environment. Over time their beaks have metamorphosed into smaller beaks s...

...debated the two theories of Darwinism (evolution) and Creationism. By proving his studies on whales, bears, and finches false, it unlocked a better understanding of our relation to chimpanzees and the key genetic differences giving us a separate creation. We have proved Darwin wrong through ancient mummy corpses, proof of whales in biblical times, comparing human genetics with chimps, and radiocarbon dating bones of bears. All of these results fit perfectly in line with biblical stories. The Bible has been around and has been referred to since the beginning of time. In the First chapter in the bible, it mentions how on the fifth day, God created the sea creatures and birds, on the sixth day was the humans. So, is Creationism the right theory of where life came from? As science unfolds, we are finding stories in the bible to be still accurate and still possible today.
