1108 words - 4 pages

CPVT Hopper, David C.MILS 210003/10/01Evolution vs. CreationThe question of our origins has been probably one of the oldest and most controversial issues that different groups have faced. Are we as written in religious books merely creations of a greater being or are we just another creature that nature came up with? I believe that one of the key issues to this problem is the limitation that exists within our universe to be able to explain either one of these theories. Besides the problem of not being able to totally prove either of these theories at the moment because of insufficient abilities to measure or prove anything, there are controversies within these theories themselves.Different religions offer different explanations, and have controversies within them that disallow one single one to be absolute and complete. On the other hand Science is unable to prove much either. Science, in its very roots already contains improvable controversies. Our very basic laws of physics become meaning less when we compare the two different approaches of relativity and quantum mechanics, which for themselves have inconstancies. So we are faced with the problem of which explanation can offer us a more reasonable and valid answer to the questions of life.Because evolution deals with theologically sensitive problems, such as humanity's place in the universe, it becomes the particular target creationists. I'll just talk about the Christian point of view without bringing in other religions to simplify things and not turn this into a 30 page paper. Most current Christian theologians believe that God can be Creator and be in charge of the universe without having to line up the chromosomes during each cell division or having to adjust planetary orbits directly. In fact, mainstream Christian theology long ago stopped making design explanations of the natural world, partly to avoid the "God of the Gaps" problem: if the direct hand of God explained unknown natural phenomena, once a natural explanation was discovered for it, God was left with one fewer gap to fill, reducing His majesty. But this approach that Christianity has taken there is still the problem of being able to explain certain phenomenon's by just declaring them to complex to be explained by human means which causes them to be then again stuck with a "God of the Gaps". Although this approach uses the weaknesses of the scientific explanations where it can not further exactly explain parts of its theories to support its ideas, the stronger evidence still lies with science, which has been able to bit by bit, fill in the gaps existent within its theories and further more explain each particular detail of its theory.Day by day further evidence for biological evolution is found to support the idea. Researchers have unearthed the fossilized remains of what may be the mother of all placental mammals. The 125 MYO specimens is the first and most primitive known representative of the placental group, to which the...
