PHYLOSOPHY Evolution vs. Creation ESSAY Carlos Pons 11(1) Creation and Evolution are two major beliefs that people follow as a guideline. The two philosophies have different effects on our lives and the make up who we are and what we do. I will compare these two philosophies and show their pros and cons. Creation is a belief followed by many people and the Holy Bible serves as a guideline and a set of instructions to show how the earth was formed and to guide us through life. Science backs up this Holy Book it is a very reliable source of the history of the world. Evolution cannot be clearly explained unless it is defined into two categories. Macro Evolution is one part of evolution, based on assumptions and beliefs. It is unscientific and has not been empirically proven. Macro Evolution states that life came from non-living materials and is slowly evolving from different kinds of species to better and stronger forms of life. Micro Evolution (adapting) is observable and has been scientifically proven many times, stating that different species adapt to their environment, but stay within their own species. The concept of Micro Evolution is totally unrelated with Macro Evolution and should not be tied in with evolution at all because people get confused in the two terms. When Evolution is mentioned throughout the paper, it is being referred to as Macro Evolution not Micro Evolution. There are many questions in life that man has always longed to find the answers to and the questions are: Who am I, why am I here, how did everything get here, and where will I go when I die? ...read more.


How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north; 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High. The first law of thermodynamics states that matter cannot be created or destroyed. So somehow the matter had to be created, coming together to everything that is in the universe today. These two philosophies give very different viewpoints on how everything has been created and why we exist. Evolution has adapted a process called the Big Bang Theory. The theory was supposed to have happened in the beginning, which created the universe. In creation, creationists believe in the big bang also, but it is stated in II Peter 3:10 in the King James Version Bible that the big bang will end the universe. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting into the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? ...read more.


The reason why geologists will not accept the gap theory is that it contradicts their assumption that the past is continuous with the present. There is no room in their naturalistic approach to science for a global cataclysm that would destroy all life and then require a new creation of plants, animals, and people such as the gap theory proposes. Any cataclysm that would leave the earth "without form and void" (or "a shapeless chaotic mass" as The Living Bible expresses it), with "darkness on the face of the deep" everywhere, would require a worldwide nuclear or volcanic explosion that would effectively disintegrate the whole crust of the earth. All pre-cataclysm mountains would be blown into the sea and billions of tons of rocks and dust blown into the atmosphere, leaving the earth covered with "the deep" everywhere and "darkness" covering the deep everywhere. Such a cataclysm would disintegrate any previously deposited sedimentary deposits with their fossils and thus obliterate all evidence of any previous "geological ages." Thus the gap theory, which is supposed to accommodate the geological ages, requires a cataclysm which would destroy all evidence for the geological ages. The two philosophies of Creation and Evolution are polar opposites; in this paper I showed just some examples that prove this point. What ever you believe in, each theory will determine your makeup, how you think in life, how you live your life and if there is an after life. However, it is possible for the two to work hand in hand. I believe it is easy to say that the God of the creation theory actually used evolution in creating us. ...read more.
