While there is a belief that humans have evolved from apes, religion has an explanation. Evolution is the theory that modern life has descended from a common ancestor, through the process of natural selection. Faith on the other hand, claims that life was created in the form it is today with some alterations from God. Since evolution was found it has been debated by all faiths. Evolution generates an explanation for the origin of life which is not necessary when there is religion, logic, and evidence explaining each aspect. Religion guides people and hence the need for evolution become unnecessary.
Both religion and evolution can be seen as a concept that gives answers to people. For some religion retorts many questions and is a pathway of

Today, modern cosmology can confirm this wonder, at some point in the universe, there was nothing but smoke or an opaque, highly dense and hot gaseous composition and of these stars are designed. (University) According to scientist, The Big Bang Theory explains the formation of the universe, if it had always existed, it would not need a creator like some rash evolutionist consider. Envision you heard a loud blast, and you asked “where did that sound originate from?” Would you be fulfilled by the answer that it originated from "nothing" and it “just happened?” Obviously not! You would say “what was the reason for that noisy blast?” For example if there is a big blast of some kind, would it create chaos or a set of patterns, land, oceans, seasons, and beauty? This proves that there must be a greater power controlling the changes and movements of this extraordinary form of life that we call the human race. In the same way, obviously the Big Bang should likewise have a cause that brought it about. Currently we can ask since The Big Bang has a reason, what was the reason for that cause? We can assume that this first cause must be capable as it brought the entire universe into presence, and it must be wise as it created the “laws of science” which represent the universe. Likewise, this first cause must be timeless, space less and insignificant, on the grounds that time, …show more content…
(Darwin p.179) Yet there is no evidence at all. In spite of his hopefulness, he understood that these missing transitional structures were the greatest interference for his hypothesis. “Why do we not now find closely-linking intermediate varieties? This difficulty for a long time quite confounded me.” (Darwin p.124-125) He assumed that his followers would find evidence later on. Nowadays, when Darwinist are told about the absent evidence in the fossil record, they make an excuse by alleging rare preservation and error of the fossil record. The Cambrian Explosion refers to the appearance in the fossil record of most major animals about 543 million years ago. The Cambrian Explosion is often represented as a test for evolution in light of the fact that the sudden blast of progress in the fossil record gives off an impression of being conflicted with the more common slow pace of evolutionary change. “…the Cambrian strata of rocks, vintage about 600 million years, are the oldest ones in which we find most of the major invertebrate groups. And we find many of them already in an advanced state of evolution, the very first time they appear. It is as though they were just planted there, without any evolutionary history. Needless to say, this appearance of sudden planting has delighted creationists.” (Dawkins p.229) Darwin predicted
