Darwin’s intention was never to directly challenge religion, but many took it that way. People had opinions of things like “Why does Darwin feel the need to question God?” and “Is the theory of intelligent design not good enough for him?” To some religious types, the understanding that Darwin had beliefs that conflicted with their own was an attack on Christianity. Charles Darwin was an explorer. He explored the ways of evolution and discovered natural selection. Even though Charles was a genius, he faced many problems while making his theory.

C.S. Lewis is probably one of the greatest Christian writers who ever lived. His variety and depth of works is legendary. But, in this particular book, he does what few authors have done well. No other author has better captured the subtle deceptions of the Devil and helped the Christian (or non-Christian) to understand it in such a clear way.
While both characters are biblical heroic underdogs, who save their people, during a war or battle with a much larger enemy army, Judith’s story is much more heroic. David had dumb luck in an one instant where as Judith had to depend on her wits, courage and charms for days to succeed in her mission. Her story is also much more believable. Granted I highly doubt a large army would just scatter after it’s leader is dead, there’s a chain of command for a reason. But it’s more believable that some giant dying just because of a stone to the forehead.. David is just a tall tale and he got lucky with a throw, no wits or strength, it could be because God willed him to win.
Albert Einstein by Karin Ireland tells the story of Albert Einstein’s life. Albert Einstein was an incredibly smart scientist who was born in Germany. He made many observations including finding a flaw in one of Isaac Newton’s laws, a law about gravity pulling on things without mass. After many years of hard work and negativity directed at him, he finally became successful and famous for all his findings and intelligence. Albert Einstein was a very successful man for being inquisitive, intelligent, and devoted.
Teaching the creationist ideology also goes against the ideas of America and it completely violates the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Creationism is almost interchangeable with religion and you will be hard-pressed to find any factual evidence of religious ideas. Most “proof” you will find is just loose generalizations or based on a fictional book created over a
Not only did he attack the Church, he also criticized other philosophers and their works as well. As a man of science, Voltaire looked up to and respected the works of Isaac Newton, writing many documents about his work. His works of the Enlightenment era eventually shaped Western philosophy as we know it today. Voltaire, although insane, was one of the most influential writers of the
How does the interpretation of scripture inform the creedal affirmation of God as Trinity? How does faith in God influence speech about the attributes of God? Devastating as it is to hear and say, it appears that numerous factors challenge the understanding of God in Modern Theology. The most prevalent ones are: science in religion, religious practices and social issues. Additionally, profound questions are raised about the presence of God in almost every tragic historical event, unfavorable medical diagnosis, oppressed institutional setting, acts of terror, and natural disasters that appears evil, or out of character for the loving, creator and keeper of this vast universe.
The Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The essential foundation of the Christian faith, one of having approximately 2.2 billion followers. The very event was the change of several believers and showed who Jesus truly was. Many, athiest particularly, have tried to debunk this event in efforts to disprove the entire religion, to show that they are all mindless followers that believe in is a false God. However, those who do attempt to do so never find the results they expected, rather they receive the answer that changes their beliefs entirely, making them followers of the very faith that they were antithetical with.
There are many theories of evolution that have emerged even before Charles Darwin 's time. Surprisingly, many of the theories, including Darwin 's own, were spot on to what we know today. In fact, Charles Darwin 's grandfather, Erasmus Darwin, had the idea that species evolved from a common ancestor. Of course, Darwin is the most famous theorists of all with his theory of natural selection. Darwin is also the only one of the many evolution theorists to have evidence of evolution and natural selection.
McGrath states, “Yet the tone of his writings of the early 1920’s is unquestionably atheistic… Severely critical if not totally dismissive of religion in general and Christianity in particular” (McGrath 131). This proves that he was in fact atheist at one point in his life and his Christian beliefs may not have affected his writing at all. He even has atheistic remarks in his book Mere Christianity; he says, “My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust” (Lewis 38). His beliefs actually had a huge impact on his writing. McGrath says, “Yet whether one thinks Christianity is good or bad, it is clearly important- and Lewis is perhaps the most credible and influential popular representative of ‘Mere Christianity’ that he himself championed” (McGrath xi).
When working in the science fields there are many obstacles a person of faith may face. The biggest of these is the controversy over the concept of evolution and how the world came into being. Atheists and evolutionists are always trying to find ways to disprove God with science. However, after spending several years learning about how nature and chemicals work together to form our world it is hard for me to imagine that all of it came into existence without a creator. Throughout this book the author, Darrel R. Falk, argues from his personal journey as a professing evangelical Christian and biologist, that only science, and not scripture, can reveal the details of creation.
I am amazed that Christians still use the worn-out " Irreducible complexity " argument which has been proven to be untenable and false every time they are brought up. This article is no different than the " flagellum Motor, " an organism seemed to be so complex it could not function if it were changed in anyway or if its " fine tuning " was off. Then came real science which had proven that you could remove part of the motor and it still functioned in one way or another and POOF!!!! another Christian apologetic false claim gone. It should be noted that this article is from the " Institute For Creation Research " which as the name implies is a Christian apologetic agenda driven organization which means nothing they say is credible or at
Christianity vs Greek Mythology Even though both Greek mythology and Christianity is still referenced to in today’s society, Greek mythology was a lot more corrupt allowing Christianity to last longer. The reason Christianity outlived Greek mythology was because Greek mythology had a numerous amount of flaws, was mainly used for scientific explanations, and caused false hope that’s based on a fantasized religion. Use the sources such as Antigone, the Bible, and Mythology: Times Tale of Gods and Heroes and other internet materials to debate the topic . Using examples such as how the Greeks believes how wheat and other crops were made to prove how in depth they would use their religion to explain how nature works. When simply describing the
This had a massive affect on the colonists of America, due to there spiritual beliefs coming to end for the past century. It not only affected the colonists but contributed greatly to the development of the separation of church and state in America. To elaborate more on these two men, Edwards was the author of the well known sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” which beliefs were established in the paragraph above. Opposite of Edwards, George Whitefield used his gentle voice to gather the colonists attention, and reportedly made listeners stream tears without saying a word . Whitefield preached of how helpless we all are and there is only one way to be saved, which was by the mighty God.
