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.
The meteor attack was not wholly an incidental event in their world. Instead, its attack was too sudden and inevitable for them to even have enough time to learn to run away from this scary calamity. Well, the blame should go to the dinosaurs as they were not alert to rescue themselves during the critical moment.

On the other hand, the theory of creationism comes from a religious viewpoint believing that a God or higher being created the entire universe. In other words, evolution has a more scientific stance in the creation of the universe while creationism has a more religious stance in the creation of the universe. They have long been controversial topics fighting over which one is correct. But I believe evolution and creationism should no longer be controversial subjects where there
Ever since the knowledge about the existence of the gigantic living forms has been perceived by human kind, our ever-curious mind has arisen several baffling questions about them – THE DINOSAURS. One of the most debated issues about the dinosaurs is their thermoregulatory system. As much as it has aroused our tickling mind, it has also given way to different hues of thoughts leading to a bedlam of discussions. In the following discussion, I have tried to brush against some of them through counter- arguments. ECTOTHERMY OR ENDOTHERMY?
To be inerrant, the Bible must be absolute in is historical and scientific accuracy. Biblical Inerrancy The main adversity that many Christians wrestle in believing the Word of God is about the Bible’s historical and scientific accuracy. Many people would agree that history is the study of past events that lead
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.
This character learned a distinct truth about his dangerous decision to bring back the pre-historic dinosaurs to the twenty first century, without knowing how keep the safety of the people have control over the dinosaurs. The novel Jurassic Park teaches the character named John Hammond, a life changing decision that involved the extinct dinosaur creatures. He thought that
Anomalies built up with the fossils they found and suddenly there were so many anomalies that they were forced to change their way of thinking. Darwinism was able to open up a period of Crisis Science when he discovered species change over time, conflicting with the theory of Intelligent Design that God created all species to be the same. For instance, during his travels on the Beagle, Darwin found the fossil of an extremely large-shelled armadillo with a structure similar to the modern armadillo. The fossils conveyed to Darwin how organisms of different species have similar bone structures that change over time. According to Kuhn, once scientists agree on a paradigm, the period of crisis science gradually closes off again and all the other paradigms are left behind.
Mindell tells us that “proponents of intelligent design claim that some features of life are too complicated to have evolved naturally. Although they emphasize that the designer is not necessarily God, proponents uniformly believe that God is the designer…” Mindell quotes law professor, Phillip Johnson, a proponent of intelligent design and author of Darwin on Trial: “Our strategy has been to change the subject a bit so that we can get the issue of intelligent design, which really means the reality of God, before the academic world and into the schools.” “Intelligent design proponents clearly believe that God is an active participant in creation, though they are divided as to whether this activity takes the form of front-loading all outcomes at the Big Bang, episodic intervention of the progressive creationism form, or other, less well-articulated possibilities. Theistic evolution, however, is ruled out or at best viewed as an ill-advised accommodation.” Intelligent design can be seen as “faith” taking “fact” seriously by arguing that the complexity of origins cannot be adequately explained by evolutionists. Scott, however, says that “even if natural selection were unable to explain the construction of irreducibly complex structures, does this mean that we must now infer that intelligence is required to produce such structures? And David Sloan Wilson argues: “Nature has always and correctly been regarded as a cornucopia of function.
There are, of course numerous instances of mimicry in the natural world and Susan uses that to explain the phenomenon, arguing that the Judases have evolved this way of eluding their natural predator: mankind. However, this is also contrary with the theory of evolution of Charles Darwin because evolution actually took a billion years to develop even the apes took 40,000 generations to turns into human being. It is impossible and illogically to happen for Judas Breed to finally emerge as a species capable of challenging human being for dominance within just three years. There is also no reasons for the Judas Breed to develop into a mean creatures as we can see in the film except that the only theory that the reason is most likely due to the effect of the metabolic enzyme that is supposingly the main purpose is just to wiped out one species of roach but instead turns into another creepy
The research that shows Christianity does have a significant amount of impact on the Scientific Revolution mostly deal with the explicit conflict between religion and science. The research that does not show the impact of Christianity on the scientific Revolution mostly question if it was even necessary on the Birth of Science. Also, the
