For thousands of years, humans have tried to explain the existence of our race on this planet. According to the Egyptians, the sun god, Ra came and created all other gods to rule over the newly created earth. Greeks believed many gods sent Prometheus to earth with the first woman, Pandora. More widely accepted creation belief is that God created Adam and then Eve using the rib of Adam. According to Christians, in turn, these two humans, reproduced to create all of mankind. The newest theory of human creation is the theory of Evolution.
Evolution is becoming the most accepted version due to the immense amount of evidence supporting the theory. There are fossil structures, the geographical distribution of species, anatomical and embryonic similarities as well as natural selection. The fossil structures are believed to be the most palpable evidence to support this theory. There are two categories in the Theory of Evolution: organic and inorganic. Organic evolution is a change in gene frequency in a population over time. Essentially meaning the DNA of species changes physical attributes to adapt to the environment. Inorganic evolution is involved with the development of the physical universe from unorganized matter. All of this is still a “theory” and is being taught as fact. Evolution is not a fact, however portrayed in media, science reports, scientific and medical reports as if it were. Evolution is a scientific theory, same as the theory of gravity, germ theory, cell theory, quantum theory, theory of relativity and many others. A theory cannot be fact. I believe it is a personal choice to believe this theory. I, for one do not.
My belief is simply put, bible based. I am a Christian and believe in God and the words and teachings of the bible. Specifically, the book of Genesis and the phrase, “after his own kind.” This phrase is repeated throughout...
