Creation and Evolution, which do you believe? Essay -- Philosophy, Ori
When thinking about the origin of life, there are two main points one can come to, Intelligent Design or Natural Process (Ken Ham, 2008). Ã¢â¬Å"According to the former view, supernatural intervention was essential for the creation of life; according to the latter, living organisms could form spontaneouslyÃ¢â¬âfor example, from the mud of the NileÃ¢â¬ (Encyclopedia of Philosophy, 2006). Creation can be defined as the original bringing into existence of the universe by God (Ã¢â¬Å"CreationÃ¢â¬ , n.d.). Intelligent design can be defined as Ã¢â¬Å"certain featuresÃ¢â¬ (Ken Ham, 2008). Intelligent Design can also be explained by finding features of the earth and explaining them by an intelligent cause ("Intelligent Design", n.d.). Creationism usually starts with religious text and trying to see how science fits with it ("Intelligent Design", n.d). Creation and Intelligent Design are both similar in the way of people believing that there was a purpose in the creation of people (Orgel, Leslie E, 2006). Evolution can be defined as Ã¢â¬Å"Change in the gene pool of a population from generation to generation by such processes as mutation, natural selection, and genetic driftÃ¢â¬ (Ã¢â¬Å"EvolutionÃ¢â¬ , n.d.). Ã¢â¬Å"Through the process of descent with modification, the common ancestor of life on Earth gave rise to the fantastic diversity that we see documented in the fossil record and around us today. Evolution means that we're all distant cousins: humans and oak trees, hummingbirds and whalesÃ¢â¬ (Orgel, Leslie E, 2006) There are two types of evolution, micro and macro. Microevolution is the small change of a species over time (Orgel, Leslie E, 2006). Macroevolution means the big change of a species over time, such as stability and through extinction (Orgel, Leslie E, 2006). This paper will dis... ...ll changing and are still being modified, how so? It says that God created everything in 6 days, not over long periods of million and billions of years. God designed us as organisms in six days, no more any less. In Conclusion, believing in creation affects how one looks on the world and the life that inhabits it. Knowing that God working as Intelligent Designer makes one think that we are put here for a purpose and that each and every one of us has a determined purpose, not that we are accidents. Also believing in creation affects how one could view others, knowing that everyone was created by a designer, one would know that people are not accidents or mistakes. Knowing that creation is the truth and that God created everything one would know that not only humans but the world itself was also created with a purpose, not from some mistake or massive explosion.
