The Argument Of Creationism: Evolution Or Creation?

Good Essays
Almost each of us reaches a moment where we wonder how the earth was created –or was it really created? We also once asked ourselves, “Where did humans come from?” or “How did humanity come into existence?”All this time we are so curious about such things. All this time we ask ourselves different questions that remain unanswered. There are two different ways on how we are going to answer all the questions we created in our mind. There are two different ways on how are we going to explain the origin of all things in the world. First is the creation way and second is the evolution way.
Evolution or Creation? This has been a great topic for arguments and debates for long years. Although a lot of theories arise from our society, people mainly

What is Creationism? Creationism is the belief that someone has created the entire universe. It is the belief that animals, human beings, and all the living creatures in the world have their own different specific ancestors and that someone who acquires great intelligence produced life in the universe. People who believe in Creationism also say that the earth is a young earth. In contrast to evolution, creation is based from biblical scriptures but still creationism is still considered a theory.
How am I so sure that all the beliefs of Creationism are true? Are there enough scientific evidences to support all of these?
Of course, Yes.
Let us go first to the belief that someone who acquires great intelligence created the entire universe. The universe itself is a good example for this argument. One physicist, namely Lee Smolin, estimates that the chance of having a life-friendly universe to exist is 〖10〗^(10^23 ). That’s ten raised to the power of ten raised to the power of twenty three.1 The laws of the universe match the narrow band of parameters that is required for the existence of advanced life. It greatly shows that the universe is a strong evidence that someone has designed and created it and it is not by mere

There are many evidences that support this belief. One example is the soft tissues and traces of blood cells that have been found in dinosaur fossils. The nature of soft tissues and blood cells are that they only have a short life span which means that dinosaurs lived just a thousand years ago.3 Another is the Carbon 14 that has been found in coals and diamonds supposedly hundred of million years old. Like the nature of the tissues and blood cells, Carbon 14 has also a short life span which debunks that diamonds and coals lived for million of years.4 These evidences are all in favor of the creationist belief that the earth is a young earth. Thus we conclude, from these scientific evidences, that the earth is a young

    The Genesis account of the creation of man is what creationists use as the backbone of their argument. The entire book of Genesis deals with creation and the beginning of history. However, Genesis is not the only place in the Bible that provides evidence that man was created by a supernatural being. The New Testament, as well as the Old Testament, informs the reader about how man came to be. Colossians is another book of the Bible that contains solid proof for creationism.…

    The genesis stories from the Bible provide the order of creation in great detail. Genesis one gives a day by day chronological account of creation week. In this God creates everything ex nihilo or 'out of nothing ' and there is 'fixity of species '. Fixity of Species is the belief that species were made as they are today, this is a major difference with theories such as evolution from scientists. Mathematical calculations done by Aristotle suggest that the sun is at the centre of the solar system whereas Christians believe that humans are the most important because in the story of the genesis God created humans last and so they believe that this is because humans were most special in hi!…

Whichever understanding someone may have, impacts their perception of the world, their view of God, and their responsibility to care for the earth.
