Evolutionism vs Creationism

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Evolutionism Back in "the dark age" of science (1700-1800s), things spoken against the bible and God were considered wrong and scientists who originated these theories were chastised and punished in the name of God. At that period, many scientists were crucified, but Charles Darwin defied the trends in The Dark Age of Science and introduced "The theory of Evolution", which later became the basic theory of evolutionism. The existing conflicts today are results of the gap between Homo erectus and Homo sapiens. Most primates evolved to Homo erectus, a stage of human evolution chain that did not contain many human characteristics. In the next stage of the "chain", some Homo erectus evolved to Homo sapiens, the stage that contains several human qualities while others evolved to something else. What happened during this period that affected Homo erectus? ...read more.

Middle

Does God exist? Though no one can prove God does not exist but no one can prove the existence of God. If God did not interfere with the process and something else did, then it's more ridiculous. Why did a stranger (or bunch or strangers) teach some savage animals and help them evolve to another form? If the stranger stayed on earth, he/she/it must have started an advanced civilization. Is it like Harry Potter's magical world that is invisible to all "muggles" (humans) Even if the stranger(s) did not stay, he/she/it must have left something to prove its existence. However these evidences were never found. It bothers people because why do creationist add imaginary factors to an important illumination of human origin. Especially when evolutionist theory can explain the process without it. It's not reasonable to believe in imaginary factors that were never proven. ...read more.

Conclusion

By using the example of the long necked turtles, it's possible to derive an explanation for why some Homo erectus changed to Homo sapiens while some did not. On an island where foods are all preserved in holes, there is a group of turtles living on it. Only turtles that have long neck can get the food and survive. As time passing by, every turtle on that island evolved and developed long neck due to the environment. If you view this change from the "big picture", it's possible to see that not all turtles evolved. Only those turtles who are/were on that island evolved to long necked turtles. This example can be used to explain why some Homo erectus evolved to Homo sapiens while some did not. The evolutionist theory is "during that period of time, in some areas had catastrophe which forced animals in that area to change or killed them. Therefore Homo erectus in those areas changed/evolved while others did not. What are those catastrophes? It's still unknown. ...read more.
