A subject of debate for years, centuries even, has been that of Creation versus Evolution. Which one outweighs the other? Which is most heavily supported by scientific evidence? Many have mulled over the idea of One omnipotent God miraculously creating the world we live in today, modeling it according to His perfect plan. Others stand firm in the belief of a phenomena of space and matter where earth was brought into existence by a spectacular “big bang,” causing entire planets, ecosystems, and life forms to materialize from nothing.
According to Charles Darwin, the advocate of evolution, evolution processes, including the beginning of the universe, occurred accidentally, meaning that everything we see and we have today is an enormous accident. All the naturally occurring incidents are merely the results of accidents, with nearly no special meaning. Naturalists as a result further interpret that lives of human beings serve the same purpose as their origins—human beings are to no avail. The idea of naturalism can be illustrated by one simple example.
For example, God can create all the other creatures, but man names them and cares for them on earth. On the other side of the problem, man is referred to as a ‘they’ for the first time in verse 26. This implies that man is not destined to be a singular, god-like being. According to Zornberg (1995: 15), “The association of aloneness with power, greatness, is clear here.” It is godlike to be alone and have no equal, but this pronoun foreshadows that man will not be alone forever.
For instance the story of creation was passed down by people who actually witnessed it and believed that it is true. It was an actual occurrence. While for science it has been passed down also from scientist to scientist who believe what they are saying is true without actually knowing or having the proof. Science is the process of trying to understand the laws of creation not proving that is why science is the reason for anything. Religion is an all known source that everybody understand in their own way.
The ironic part is just that god created man. There are several allegories to the bible, particularly what happened in the Fall of man, when Adam and Eve got banished from the garden of Eden. The cataclysmic event that nearly drives humanity to extinction, Crake’s genocide, happens because he has an ambition. An ambition to rewind humanity’s history, to reverse the effects of the Fall of man. But it is his meddling as a “god” that nearly wipes out mankind.
Charles came up with a new theory that actually made sense. Charles theory was “that all species of organisms arise and develop through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that increase the individual's ability to compete, survive, and reproduce.” His theory caused a stir because of others beliefs that a christian god created living things. The idea that humans may have descended from apes was not meant as a personal insult at anyone, but people took it that way.
There are so many mysteries that remain unsolved even until now; one of them and probably the most popular is how life started and how organisms were ‘created’. There are two theories that stand out the most; evolution and intelligent design. While evolution explains how organisms had developed from simple forms billions years ago through a process called natural selection, intelligent design states that nature is too complex to happened by a random process like evolution by natural selection, thus there must be an “intelligent agent” that is responsible for the creation of the universe. William Paley, in his book Natural Theology: or, Evidence of the Existence and Attributes of the Deity explained intelligent design by comparing the complexity
The sin of Adam and Eve devastated mankind and sent destruction to all of Creation. Ultimately, only through God’s grace could humanity ever reconcile the damage done by the first of the human race (Eph. 2:8-9 [NASB]). However, in this understanding of the Fall the emphasis has often been focused on spiritual aspects. There were other substantial physical damages. The original physical world transformed dramatically and those changes concern every person, every moment, of every day.
If Victor would have done anything but ran away from his own creation, then the outcome would have been better for all of the characters in the novel. The other characters in the novel also affected the outcome. No one ever thought to help or at least speak to the creature. Maybe if someone took the time to understand Adam they would know that he meant no harm whatsoever. Everyone he encountered chased him out or would try to cause some type of harm towards him.
Proctor died as a martyr for others to understand the value of honor, however, he buried the truth with him. Instead, he should have defended his innocence as a pure Puritan instead of dying as a condemned warlock in the eyes of the court; this would have disproven the court’s suspicion
So, to say that evolution is the only scientific theory, is like saying creationism is the only religious theory. Which is also untrue. Neither creationism and or evolution can be proven one-hundred percent. So why should we just teach one to our growing minds? If neither can be tested or scientific fact, then why teach one without the
The fall of man happened after Adam & Eve went against God’s command and listened to the suggestion of Satan, by taking fruit from the tree of knowledge of good, evil, and eternal life. Once God realized they had eaten the fruit he said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” (International Version. (2012)
