The theory of macro-evolution is one of the most debated topics in modern day society. Macro-evolution is the changing of one species to another, and the Big Bang Theory is tied in with it. Theories such as man evolves from apes and the universe coming from a large explosion, called the Big Bang, have been debated against creationists who believe in creation from a supernatural being. Evolution, I believe, is false because it lacks the transitional fossils, proof, and evidence in order to prove the theory. Since evolution states that there was no being that created the universe, it is a point severely debated by creationists. The Big Bang Theory suggests that the universe came from a large explosion in nothingness, scattering stars, planets, and galaxies creating the universe. On the contrary, the Bible in Genesis 1:1 states, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” The dynamics of the earth and its position are highly questioned as well. The earth is positioned at just the right distance from the sun so that we receive exactly the proper amount of heat to support life. The other planets of our solar system are either too close to the sun (too hot) or else too far (too cold) to sustain life (Cahill 23). Any appreciable change in the rate of rotation of the earth would make life impossible. For example, if the earth were to rotate at 1/10th its present rate, all plant life would either be burned to a crisp during the day or frozen at night (Cahill 23).Temperature variations are kept within reasonable limits due to the nearly circular orbit of the earth around the sun (Cahill 23).The moon revolves around the earth at a distance of about 240,000 miles, causing harmless tides on the earth. If the moon were located 1/5th of this distance away, the continents would be completely submerged twice a day (Cahill 24). The thickness of the earth’s crust and the depth of the oceans...
