    Evolution Vs Creation

    Evolution is a theory that states human beings are the product of continuous development and homo sapiens (human beings) developed from unicellular organism. Creation is a theory that credits God for the world and the universe.
    Science teaches evolution theory and religion teaches creation theory. How do you reconcile beetwn these contrasting views.

    If Science teaches Darwinian evolution then it fails at the scientific method. Darwinian evolution is neither observable, testable, or repeatable. There is no evidence of any genus producing another genus.

      I reject both of these views because they contradict the Bible, which teaches creation as a historical fact, not as a theory.

      Many scientists believe evolution not for scientific reasons but for historical reasons. They believe that the physical laws of the universe have always been in existence just as they are today and that there has never been any divine intervention of any kind. If you believe this you must believe in evolution to explain the existence of life, whether there is any evidence for it or not. If their basic assumption is wrong and God has intervened by creating creating life and the universe itself, then all the conclusions they have reached regarding the origin of life and of the universe are proven wrong. Unfortunately we live in a culture where this point of view is generally accepted and even many Christians believe evolution is true and a way must be found to reconcile it with the Bible.

      All of my schooling has been in public schools which taught that evolution is true and for a long time I accepted it. I reconciled it with the Bible by believing the gap theory.

      I have only recently become aware of the fact that evolution has not been scientifically proved and I now believe in young earth creation. Here are two sites where you can learn more about the scientific evidence against evolution.

        Creation is the only real story, and all evolutionists will be forced to admit it, one day very soon. Jesus Christ will return and make a new heaven and a new earth. Are you ready for it? Every knee will bow to His Name, and every tongue will confess that He is Lord of All!!!

          The popular media often portrays the creation vs. evolution debate as science vs. religion, with creation being religious and evolution being scientific. Unfortunately, if you don't agree with this label, you too are labelled. Regardless of whether you're a creationist or an evolutionist, if you disagree with the stereotype, you're condemned and "exposed" as a religious fanatic who is secretly trying to pass religion off as science or, even worse, trying to disprove science in order to redeem a ridiculous, unscientific, religious worldview. The fact is neither model of origins has been established beyond a reasonable doubt (otherwise, the theory of evolution wouldn't be called the "theory" of evolution). Whether we like to admit it or not, those of us who subscribe to the theory of evolution do so by faith. And while the recognition of design in biology may have theological implications, it is not based upon religious premise - it's based upon empirical observation and logic.

              Actually, there are many people who are not Christians, or even religious , who do not accept the idea of evolution. As was already mentioned, the theory has never been proved out. Never has one type of creature evolved into another type of creature. We have proof of changes in one species of animal, but they remain the same species.
              Take the dog, as an example.
              We have dogs af all shapes, sizes and colors, long-hair and short hair. All have either developed to naturally adapt to their surroundings, or they have been bred by mankind to be a certain size and appearance.
              But, regardless of any of their indivual characteristics, they still remain dogs, and they don't evolve into cats because they are small, or into bears because they are large.
              The non-Christians who do not believe in evolution then have to come up with some other scenario for the development of life here on earth, and this is where we get the ideas of interstellar travelers coming here and "seeding life", and controlling the development.
              This allows them to believe in another (totally unproven) theory, and still not have to admit that this earth is a creation of God just like the Bible says that it is.

                  For a born again Christian, baptized in God's Holy Spirit there can be no "vs." There is the truth and then everything else.

                  1 John 2:27 (NKJV)
                  But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

                    I think God created the evolution process-maybe and a lot of christians think also this way-thats why millions of years of earth history fit with the Bible? A lot of theologians see the harmony of the earth and God behind the concept(Darwin)like the millions of years of earth history and the slow geological processes that happened. But then again the Bible says he created the world in 6 days or something like that?

                        You can't reconcile Evolution and Creation. It's Science and Religion, accordingly. Science will try to prove to create something out of nothing through our own capacity, as humans. In religion, you have faith in power, miracles and one God.

                          The scientists say evolution and creation can coexist, also science does not contradict the literal interpretation which says "God created heaven and the earth and the species in 6 days"(Genesis). Scientific evidence shows the universe to be about 13.7 billions old and earth was formed 4.5 billions years ago. You can't read the Bible like a scientific text though, because its often contradictory and you cannot take it literally. I think science answers the how questions(how did the universe evolve)and only religion can answer the why questions(why is there a universe at all).

                            Just curious, do you realize there are opposing answers for the question of the age of the universe and earth? There are scientist that are Young Earth Creationist. One modern scientist that sticks out is Raymond Vahan Damadian the inventor of the CT scan.

                            You may want to investigate the other side of the debate. Here are a few resources:

                            Creation scientists - creation.com

                            As for me, it doesn't matter what they say, even what I say, what matters is what Jesus says, and He referred to the Genesis account as a literal historical record. So unless you want to contend that Jesus is wrong as far as I am concerned the matter is settled.

                              Things are complicted by the fact that science does not deal in absolute truths. For example, Newtonian Mechanics was good enough to get men to the Moon and back, but it is known for a fact that we do not live in a Newtonian universe.

                              Something similar might be true of evolution. It can be used for its utility, without it ultimately being true.

                              If it comes to the crunch, however, a decision has to be made as to whether science is allowed to determine what in the Bible can be true, or whether the divinely inspired scriptures are to determine what in science can be true.
