The Creation Story Myth

Good Essays
Register to read the introduction… It is scientifically impossible to separate the light from the dark. On the second day, it states that God separated the dome, sky, from the water. It too cannot have happened especially in such a short time period. We can also recall God stating that vegetation will just appear with fruit trees of every kind to grow. We know that growing fruit from natural resources takes time and would not come to be in the time frame given. On the fifth day, God supposedly created the sea monsters and every living creature that moves. You can’t just create any living creature (aquatic animals) there is scientific theories behind the evolution. On the sixth day, God created humankind, male and female. We still believe that God was part of the creation humankind but scientific evidence today that shows that it was more complicated than that and would have taken much more time than a single day. All of these examples show how this passage of the Creation Story is a myth. Although some people still believe that God created and formed our land by himself, it’s just not possible to in 6 days as science proves.

    One of the most debated issues in not only the scientific community, but also the government as well, is the issue of creationism versus evolution. Creationism is the belief that the origin of life was caused by a supernatural being, specifically God (“Creationism”, 2015). Surprisingly, the creationist movement only recently emerged in response to the newly formed theory of evolution. Creationism officially came into being in the early 1900 's to oppose the new teachings about the origin of life (“Creationism”, 2015). Charles Darwin was the first to introduce this new theory that caused a major uproar in the scientific field of life 's origin.…

    Thus, they are equally baseless. Additionally, faith attitudes do not rely on empirical data from the natural world to be strengthened, so they have no business making claims of the natural world without evidence. A great number of people may personally believe in a young Earth creationist theory, but there is no definitive, objective source in the Bible to support this as the one true interpretation. Therefore, any scientific evidence against the young earth…

    The argument that God brought about the universe is somewhat unconvincing and contradictory. Although the argument lays a clear conclusion, it potentially creates more problems than answers. Many find the argument useless, leaving people nothing, and continuing to question the initial first cause. The single most important objection given towards the cosmological argument lies within the question of who created God? Other than the clear statement that God was the initial cause for all things that exist, it appears God is exempt from causation.…

    The evolution of man has been the topic of many controversial debates between the scientific and religious communities. There is a significant amount of scientific evidence against the idea of creationism that cannot be ignored. Yet this information doesn’t lead to humans’ origin. This supports the creationists’ argument that god created human beings. While both sides argued on the origin of human beings, the believers in Darwinism contended with scientific evidence while the believers in creationism contended with their indoctrinating beliefs.…

    Creation in nature is a type of change because it involves one thing changing its form into another form. Divine creation, however, is not a type of change. Religion is false in explaining the creation of nature as opposed to creation in nature. God is not in nature because God is not a natural thing. It is not correct to think of God in a natural way by assuming his actions or attributes are natural.…

    This argument is feasible, however the question that I am posing is whether or not one believes in God’s creating story of man or if man evolved from another species. In that regard, there are only two possible answers. Another person may argue that God’s creation story is a biblical myth and that only portions of the story are accurate. However, one cannot just pick and choose which aspects of a story we believe in just because they coincide with our ideals. If you believe that God’s story is all biblical myth, then you believe in Darwin’s theory of evolution.…

    In one of his famous works, he claims that writers of certain parts of the Bible simply ignored scientific and historical events that are perhaps more realistic than allegorical elements of the Bible: “It is a distortion…of these creation stories to ignore the poetry, shut one’s eyes to the drama and concentrate on the very things that the writer could not possibly have regarded as important: the order of events and the scientific method of creation” (Winter 24). As scientific thought continues to grow in today’s society, the reality of questioning one’s beliefs based on emotion…

    I felt God telling me to choose Abraham, as he was a faithful servant of God. As I was reading into the context of Abraham, I found his obedience and faithfulness is what led to his blessing. Sometimes in my life, I try so hard and fail, forgetting that God is in control of every circumstance. This passage shows me that being obedient in God’s eyes, you can be made fruitful and he will prosper you. Abraham was put to the test because God wanted to see if he still loved him.…
