Essay on Evolution versus Creationism

810 Words4 Pages
Evolution versus Creationism Evolution is a theory that’s based on science and more detailed evidence while Creationism is a faith-based theory. In no way is faith, a factor that influences the ideas and theories supported by scientists. As such, you really cannot compare one to the other; you have to just choose which one you believe is true although it is possible to believe in both at the same time. Since the beginning of human life, there has been a single question that has puzzled even the greatest of philosophers and scientists. Humans are, by nature, interested in their past. As a result every civilization through out time has sought to find the origin of life, and answered it to meet their needs. Early civilizations taught…show more content…
Charles Darwin’s theory was expanded later to a larger scale, to proclaim that life has evolved from hydrogen that was present at the birth of the universe into all living things currently found on Earth. As with the theories and beliefs of early cultures, Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution must meet the same requirements in order to be viewed as plausible and believable. If the theory is logically based, mathematically supported, and there is either evidence promoting the theory, or a lack of evidence contrary to the theory it is accepted as a possible theory that explains life’s origins. However, Charles Darwin’s theory fails to meet any of the regulations placed before it. Logically the concept of a living organism emerging from something that is non-living is challenged greatly from the scientific community. A community that insists life must come from life, just as motion must come from motion. Just as a bowling ball is incapable of rolling without a force being applied, a rock is incapable of giving birth to an amoeba. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states “that left to it’s own devices, that is without interference by something else, any living being will break down into its simplest forms, in direct opposition to the theory of evolution that proposes that living beings will change and gain in complexity over time”. (Kylce) The mathematical opposition is equally hindering to the theory evolution. According
