    Young Earth creationism is the belief where the world was created in 6, 24-hour days, and the age of the world is approximately 6000 years old. The Young Earth creationism uses the great flood to show how it makes sense. Making the world and everything on it young. This ideal that the earth is young is not a new ideal and has been around since between 700 and 735 AD, when a monk by the name of Venerable Bede claimed the creation of the world was in 3952 BC. Many other people have placed the creation in the time frame of 3961 through 4004 BC. The Young Earth creationism view will show Biblical support, along with evidence dating and theologian James Ussher’s important key points. Genesis goes through the creation of the world where God created everything in prefect harmony, and there was no death for all of creation and after the fall of humanity, which brought death to both mankind, and all the animals of the earth.

    Young Earth Creationism is a theory that states that the universe, including Earth, is 6000-12000 years old and was created in six literal days (Mortenson, 2011). One of the main arguments for this theory is that there are many naturally occurring phenomena in the universe which show that YEC is the only viable theory. This argument was proposed by Dr. Russell Humphreys, an expert in YEC. One of these phenomena includes the spiral shape of the known galaxies. Humphreys suggests that the spiral…

    the creation story is very literal and the side wch says the creation story is metaphorical. In the past, many arguments have arose over these different topics and there have been many variations of evolution theories, many of those trying to mix God’s creation with scientific theory.

We know that the information we…

    Evolution: “when science trumps faith”. (pp159) Chapter 7 discusses evolution in the most literal sense possible: the creation of earth and life without any assistance from God. As one might imagine, it is centered on the teachings of Dawkins, whose stance on evolution is clear and unforgiving. Dawkins starts out with the argument that “evolution fully accounts for biological complexity and the origins of humankind, so there is no more need for God.” (pp163) I enjoyed Collins’ quick and cunning…

    from Adam’s rib, he created another, this one a female, named eve. They were trapped in a paradise-like enclosure, called the Garden of Eden. The theory is that from these two, the entire population of humans was created. Other organisms were also created in a similar fashion. This theory is preposterous since it is based purely from a religious standpoint, which, in turn, leads it to be wrought with errors and ignorance. The Bible, although it is very symbolic, is not the most reliable of…
