What is Creation Science? Summary
Part I. Evolution: Science or Faith. Ch.1: The Vanishing Case for Evolution Science
In chapter one Dr. Henry M. Morris provides a detailed account of evidence proving creation science, by contradicting a variety of leading evolutionists quotes regarding different areas of evolution and explaining the true science behind evolution. Morris starts out by giving evidence that many of Charles Darwin 's famous claims of evolution cannot be proven true. For example, one of Darwin 's most famous claims of having solved the problem of "the origin of species was not discussed by Darwin at all. Darwin never mentioned the "origin of species in his book nor did he ever give any examples of a new species arising out of natural selection. Thousands of evolutionists around the world claim that the fossil record is the best evidence for evolution, yet after half a century there is no change in the fossil record. Not only is there no evidence of species transitioning over time, there is also many gaps in the fossil record showing no undisturbed transitions between species.
The "essence of the scientific method is measurement, observation, and repeatability"(Morris 9). Both the creation and evolution models cannot be scientifically tested because history cannot repeat itself. The beginning of life, man, and the universe cannot be tested now, but their results can be. The creation and evolution model give different predictions regarding the origin of life, man, and the universe. The evolution model uses natural laws and processes to explain the origins of life, man, and the universe, where as the creation model is based mostly off of the Bible. Surprisingly, more...

...saw anywhere from one to three moths. Lichen from the tree was killed by pollution reveling the dark moths. The tree always had dark and light colored moths, the dark ones were just camouflaged by the lichen. Darwin said that population shifted from having only light colored moths to having both dark and light. The only thing that happened was that the percentage of dark colored moths increased to 98%. The moths did not change into another species of the moth. The main point from examining the moths was that there are limits on time and chance with natural selection. In contrast to Darwin 's belief, creationists believe that natural selection is a process initiated by God in which organisms over time adapt to a certain environment. Natural selection is a theory that has been studied for years and years, and to many it still raises the question is it really accurate?

- ... Many scholars discussed in the chapter, do not believe that evolution and religion cannot go hand-in-hand. It is believed that if God plays a role in evolution, then it is no longer a process of natural selection. Another point that the scholars agree on in the chapter is the fact that humans cannot be viewed as products of evolution. DeWitt gives an example in his book when he looks at the extinction dinosaurs and how the asteroid impact has changed the world, especially the present of humans....

- The idea of a world progressing, or evolving, in science hasn’t been around forever. In fact, the Enlightenment period in the seventeen hundreds with scientists such as Isaac Newton the man who discovered gravity, Louis Pasteur the chemist who invented the vaccine to prevent rabies, Charles Darwin the father of evolution, Benjamin Franklin the first scientist to toy with the dangers and possibilities of electricity, and so many more wonderful scientists was the start of the “progress” that revolutionized our world....

- Since the 1800’s, the influence of Darwin’s theory of evolution has been taken into thorough consideration and repetitively debated to whether human biological development evolved from chimpanzees through out time along with the idea of how all life on earth came to existence. In fact, this theory has struck such a high level of controversey that it primarily became a crucial idea of intellectuality discussed within the West and around the world. Science and relegion have been the greatest factors which have shaped and mended values and ideas of western societies, essentially making a lasting impression on human history....

- The question of how long modern humans have been on Earth is a riddle that scientists have been trying to answer for centuries. One of the most popular theories to try and answer this question is the theory of evolution, which proposes that humans in their modern form (Homo sapiens) have only been around for about 100,000 years. Before then, there were no modern humans, only their predecessors, the Homo heidelbergensis, Homo antecessor, etc., descendants of the apes. This theory has become the basis of science curriculum throughout our public schools and in many states teachers are prohibited to present any material opposing evolution, thus giving students the impression that evolution is a...

- An Exploration of Different Theories of Evolution Where did we come from. It is a question that has haunted the entire history of humanity. Thousands of years ago, our ancestors sought to answer the question with myths. Today, we are still struggling with the same question—only today we seek to answer this mystery with science. Given various observations, it seems plausible that all life arose from a few very simple organisms millions of years ago. Observations of life will raise two important (though almost paradoxical) questions: Why are there so many different kinds of life.... [tags: Life Evolution Science Theories Essays]

- An Introduction to Evolution What is Evolution. Evolution is the process by which all living things have developed from primitive organisms through changes occurring over billions of years, a process that includes all animals and plants. Exactly how evolution occurs is still a matter of debate, but there are many different theories and that it occurs is a scientific fact. Biologists agree that all living things come through a long history of changes shaped by physical and chemical processes that are still taking place.... [tags: Evolution Science Biology Essays]

- The Validity of Creationism and Evolution Abstract: This paper discusses the validity of both creation and evolution and examines whether they can interact with each other. Besides doing my own research, I have chosen to interview four people extensively involved in either Christianity or biology. I specifically picked interviewees who strongly supported either evolution or creation to get both sides of the issue. Two of the people were from United Christian Fellowship (UCF): Andrew Larratt-Smith, leader of UCF, and Ricardo Dawkins, UCF small group member.... [tags: Science Creationism Evolution Essays]

- Creation Versus Evolution “Creation Versus Evolution.” What’s wrong with this title. Read it to yourself a few times, and then answer that question. We’ve all heard of the argument. Creationism, the idea that God created all the species as they appear today, versus Evolutionism, the idea that all life evolved from simple bacteria to all the species that appear today, is a familiar controversy. Ever since Darwin first published the Theory of Evolution in his controversial 1859 book The Origin of Species, the debate has raged between religion and science....

- "What is the most profound question that human beings can ask about themselves. It has to be: Where do we come from. That leads, of course, to: Where does all life come from?" These questions have interested humanity for years. Many different views on the origin of humankind have been debated and remain in question today. ( Edey, pg.1 ) One view is known as "creation-science". It is commonly understood to refer to a movement of Christian fundamentalists based upon an extremely literal interpretation of the Bible....
