Falk seems to be oblivious of the assumptions used in debates on origins, and of the difference between data and understandings of data. No one has a way to go back in time and study our history, so all ideas must be based upon assumptions. Those assumptions are the foundation of our worldview, which is our central belief about where the world came from and how it became what it is today. The Bible has many verses about the timing of creation and God’s hand in it. God spoke the Universe, heavens, Earth, life, and man into existence (Genesis 1; Psalm 33:6, 9; 148:5; John 1:1-3).
Drummond fought for Cates so I know he’s on the side of teaching evolution in the schools. I suspect he might would give Darwin extra weight. Or he 's just showing that you can 't only know one side of the story as in both sides are always necessary for a whole sense of the
All literature is written with a specific message that the writer is trying to convey. Inherit the Wind is a very complex play with several different themes, one of which is that one must look beyond the surface to seek the truth. Through the use of Drummond’s character, the rivalry between Drummond and Brady, and the contents of the trial itself, this play shows readers that things may not always be what they seem. Firstly, Drummond’s character may seem biased due to his position, but he is shown to be fair and open to all opinions. One example of this is when he ensures that the jury is impartial to both evolutionists and creationists.
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.
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.
In the play, “Inherit the Wind” written by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Lee, Bertram Cates goes on trial for teaching “Darwin’s Theory of Evolution” to his story. This created a major case, where humans challenged God’s holy word,. This started a war against humans and the God. During the battle, two of the world’s greatest mind fought against each other, the defence attorney Henry Drummond and the prosecutor attorney Matthew Harrison Brady. From the beginning to the end, the trial was influenced mostly by Brady’s characteristics, successfully leading him to winning the trial.
The creation of life shows the creation of religion and its need to be apart of human life the showing of a creator by the creation of different religions of the same stories and godly tails. The basic idea of religion is the knowledge of a almighty creator. Cat’s Cradle is very entwined with religion and its ability to affect the masses and their view on the world. Bokononism is the large focus in the book and most of the events that take place is caused both directly and indirectly by that religion. The idea that Man created religion is both right and wrong Man may create His own idea of what others must follow but the fundamental knowledge of an Almighty Creator is prevalent throughout the world.
Fate versus free will. This has been a statement questioned since humans could think. Fate is the idea that everything is meant to happen for a reason, commonly connected to religion and the fact that God has a plan for everyone and he leads us in the direction that he decides. On the other hand, free will is the idea that you as a human being has the power to determine his or her destiny with every single decision they choose to make. This argument prominently came up previously in the course as we read the novel Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut, presenting the main character Billy Pilgrim in a situation that made him debate whether his life was determined by fate or free will.
He believed that “the Bible “ gave a ‘ manifestly false history of the world.’” ( Textbook 752). Thus, in his journal, he was trying to disprove and argued that the Bible is false, and his theory however, is a “fact”. In Darwin’s “The Descent of Man” he stated that “the grounds upon this conclusion rest will ever be shaken, for close similarity between man and the lower animals in embryonic devolvement… are the facts which cannot be disputed” (
Saul knows that prophecy gives the kingdom to David, but he determines to fight against God and keep the kingdom for his son. Though Macbeth is only rejecting the word of the demonic sisters, the idea that he rejects what is appointed for him by whatever means he can is parallel to Saul. Interestingly, though Macbeth has no children, he complains, “no son of mine succeeding,” as if Shakespeare is adding the phrase so that we can see the parallel to Saul more clearly. So it is evident in ways that Shakespeare related Macbeth to the Bible but is hasn't been proven. Nobody knows what religion Shakspeare was so we don't know whether or not this was what he believed or if he wrote this in honor of King James, for the translation of the Bible.
Not to mention that evolution breaks many scientific laws which include; the second law of thermodynamics, the law of cause and effect, and the law of biogenesis. 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?
