  • Creationism Argumentative Essay

    I don’t remember ever asking where it all came from. I grew up in what was, for the most part, a highly educated and progressive environment with little exposure to much else – I remember many happy hours spent with those glossy DK children’s books and I’m sure I came across early humans at some point – but I don’t know that I was aware of anything but evolution until middle school. I had been introduced to the creation story from the bible in school, but with it came various Native American…

  • Natural Selection In Coyne's On The Origin Of Species

    What made Darwin stand out from the crowd was his ideas that took all supernatural factors, even God, in the design of the natural world. His ideas were simply evolution and the mechanism of natural selection. Darwin was a big follower of Paley’s work on Natural Theology, but Paley relied too heavily on supernatural factors. Darwin published his work On the Origin of Species in 1859, and in it contained the components of his theory of evolution. Coyne talks about the six components: evolution,…

  • Elbow's Argument Analysis

    In the traditional method of critical thinking, the goal is to find the right answer by discovering and ferreting out the wrong answers. Thus, in a multiple choice quiz, a student could determine that the correct answer was C by knowing that A, B, and D were incorrect. This student knows that, as Sherlock Holmes said, “When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” To me, this quote sums up the premise of what Elbow refers to as the doubting…

  • Comparing John H. Walton's Human Origins And The Bible

    In our modern day, science seems to (or sometimes attempts to) trump the Christian Bible in every way for some. It’s as if modern science can’t see similarities or agreements between the two, so one must choose one or the other. In John H. Walton’s “Human Origins and The Bible,” he explains that the Bible does not contain any kind of “scientific revelation” and whatever science is within the Bible would have been general knowledge for everyone. But in our present day of the 21st century, many…
