Here is where the Igbo and Christian religions differ. The Ibo believed in multiple of gods, whereas the Christians focus on one. They also disagree on the feelings towards their creator. Later into their conversation Mr. Brown says to Akunna, “You are afraid of Chukwu. In my religion Chukwu is a loving father and need not be feared by those who do his will” (Achebe 110).
For starters Christianity and evolution both have a different beginning’s. In Christianity there was a God in the beginning, but for evolution there was a random chance of something to happen. To compare these two and say they can co-exist is quite hard since they don’t agree with each other in the beginning. The Darwinian doctrine states that the evolution of life is a random process, that we are here out of accident. The Bible states that we are here for a reason.
The idea was enforced by church officials and affirmed by scientific observation. According to Christian worldview plant and animal species remain unchanged, God is the designer of all living creatures in the world. However, turmoil occurs in science too. One of this upheaval is Charles Darwin’s theory of Evolution. It was totally contrary to the Christian worldview.
Despite the theory’s overall popularity in modern times, there isn’t a lot of evidence supporting this theory. To make the evolution theory even less appealing, Genesis goes against the theory all together. Genesis 1:1 (ESV) simply states, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” This clearly states that there was and is an Intelligent Creator who created the universe. Of course, with this statement, we could easily say that God also created us along with all of the other organisms seen today because he is the Creator. However, people do not think that is enough because they think that there is not enough proof that God created everything.
10. The biblical allusion would be how Victor is like God because he is the one creating life. The monster would be like Adam because Adam was a creation of God. Adam then committed a sin by disobeying God, and the monster ended up killing Victor 's friends and family, which would make them both evil. Shelley could be mocking the concept of a god, and Christianity itself.
If modern day teachings on science, philosophy, or even church councils teach something contrary to Scripture, Scripture has ultimate authority. Many people view Scripture and its role differently, but the underline reason why is based on authority. If someone denies the authority of Scripture, he or she is prone to add or take away whatever he or she pleases. This allows them to become the ultimate authority over Scripture, and their interpretations are based more off of personal preference or cultural norms. However, Scripture should have the last word because it is God’s word.
Were land and water insects created the same day? These are all questions that people ask. “And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from darkness.” In this verse it shows God separates light from darkness. This raises a bunch of controversy. Light and darkness cannot exist together, for they are opposite.
It is a book primarily of religion and morals. It is not a book of science. " I agree with this statement because when you read the Bible it is mostly about the people who lived in that time and the miracles that Jesus preformed, you may often get a life lesson out of the Bible, but nothing in the Bible relates to science, so why oppose to teaching evolution because of the Bible when the Bible has nothing to do with science? The next point that made me not want to vote to convict John Scopes is Darrow mentions that the Bible is scattered, the Bible has various acts and Ideas. With the different stories and no order how are the teachers of Tennessee going to be able to decipher what about evolution conflicts with the Bible?
In his 1802 work Natural Theology, William Paley attempts to logically prove that God exists and created the universe, known the Intelligent Design argument (Himma). In this argument, he states that the universe is like a watch in three relevant aspects, complexity, regularity, and purpose. Because of this, he says, we know that a watch has a creator, therefore the universe must also have a creator. However, I believe that this argument is flawed because I think the analogy does not work on two of these counts, regularity, and purpose. I also believe that Paley uses circular logic to explain his definition of purpose.
These terms are often used in creationist literature. Due the fact that most people confuse n mix up these two words, it is of importance that they be defined and be differentiated so as to understand whether the bible supports micro evolution. As mentioned above that micro evolution could have occurred in nature, clearly shows that there could be some biblical evidence that supports this notion.
