Evolution versus Creationism: Evolution leads the truth over Creationism

Abstract
Evolution and Creationism have been a heated debate in the school system for years. There is a lot more evidence shows that Evolution is better than Creationism but some people don’t believe that. Like how the Earth was created slow and instead of fast like the Bible says. And how plant and animal life evolved more slowly than the Bible saying that God created the plant and animal life on Earth. But people need to open there eyes and see that the Bible is just one big story and Evolution is history and is still making it today. So Evolution will always be on top of how life got started.

Evolution versus Creationism: Evolution leads the truth over Creationism “It is a primordial mystery that has engaged human imagination from the down time: Who are we? Where did we come from? What is our ultimate destiny? The story of creation—whether told through the imagery of ancient myth; the revelations of scared tradition or the theories of modern physics and biology – is the story of what it means to be a human. And it is a story over which religion and science have been fighting for centuries. Since Copernicus overturned the church-sanctioned view of the Earth as the center of the universe and Charles Darwin posited random mutation and natural selection as the real creators of human life, the biblical view that ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth’ has found itself under increasing attack in modern Western thought” (Sheler, 1991, par. 1).

The theory of Creation is that God created the heavens and the Earth, and that Adam & Eve were the first humans alive. The theory of Evolution is that the Earth was created through billions of years, and human and plant life evolved through biology. The significance of this topic is great because it has been a heated debate through centuries. But the most famous event that started this whole debate was the Scopes trial in 1925. Although society has been split on the issue of Creationism versus Evolution; Evolution has been more substantial evidence that shows that the Earth evolved and was not created by God.

Some people in America believe that teaching creationism is better than teaching evolution in the classroom. They believe that God created the Heavens and the Earth. The Earth could have not been created in six days that would be impossible. There is evidence that all the Bible stories are true. Creationists have continued to change on how the Earth was created (Sheler, 1991, par. 12). So that means they still have no idea on how the Earth was created. So no matter what the Creationists say, they will never be right on how the Earth and life was created.

There might be writings of saying that God created the Earth, but no physical evidence have yet to be found. The Creationists believe that the Earth was created by God makes no sense. The creationist had to get their views recognized by teaching an alternative scientific theory in the science curriculum (Saladin, 2002, par. 5). So many parents in the 1960s had fought the state Supreme Court that Creationism was to be taught in school instead of Evolution (Magner, 2001, par. 10). Even though they got Creationism taught in the school, later it would fold. But there has been groups of Anti-Evolution people that is still growing from the 1980s (Magner, 2001, par. 4). Saladin a professor of Biology at Georgia College quoted. The Creationists had attacked the evidence for Evolution like, arguing over time gaps, questioned the validity of radiometric dating, argued the laws of thermodynamics making evolution impossible, and claimed that geological features like the grand canyon were evidence of Noah’s flood, and other attacks in their alternative scientific theory (Saladin, 2002, par. 5). Even though they said that evidence of Noah’s flood was true, they didn’t explain how it happened. Lois...
