Do You Believe In Creation Or Evolution?

Ape - Man's early stage.

In my early stage in life, I read through the holy bible the account of creation of the world in the book of genesis, which I actually believed and accepted. I was made to understand that God created the world and everything in it. As I advance in my studies, I came to realise that there is another version called "the theory of evolution". This theory has a different version of the entire story. It told me that man developed from other smaller animals, like monkeys. At a stage, I began to wonder which of the stories is correct. Two good heads is better than one. Please let me hear your opinion about creation.

Creation is little more than religious superstition. Evolution is a natural occurrence. Evolution contends that we all come from a common ancestor, and the contention is backed up by physical evidence (the fossil record, DNA, etc.). We will never know if creation is correct, because there's no proof of it. However, we know evolution happens, because we've seen it happen.

The fossil record reveals to us that certain creatures existed. I don't think that animals like dragon is still in existence, but there's a record of such animal in the past. It must have transformed into another higher creature. Man and monkey would't have existed as two difference animals if man actually evolved from monkey. Well, I appreciate your contribution. Thank you.

Can you give me a good reason there couldn't have been a little of both? Maybe we have evolved from what God first created. Evolution is a very slow process. It is still happening today but it is so slow a process we can't see it. The advancements in man's intelligence is a very good example of evolution but it is probably the fastest process so we can see it. It doesn't have to be one way or the other. It could just as easily be a combination of both. The account of How and when God created the world was written by man. Man makes mistakes so who can say exactly when and how God created it. There are so many possibilities I don't think anyone should nail it down too tight at this point. I think we need to leave room for additional information on this one. Art

Well, you have a point there, but what makes me feel that evolution is not real is that if man actually developed from monkeys there wouldn't monkeys anymore, since it has transformed to man. The bible was written by men inspired by God. They never write it on their own. Thanks for your response.

I would say that is very logical thinking. I never considered that but it is true. If all these things have evolved from other things then there would be no other things they evolved from. It seems to me some people may be confusing "transforming" with "evolution". You know a frog stars out as a legless fish type creature and then transforms into a 4 legged frog. Butterflies start out as a worm and tr5ansforms into a butterfly. Several creatures transform from one stage to another and most don't. Man doesn't. Art

A. You have a Book called "The Bible" that is inspired by GOD that not only tells you the past (where we came from, and how) but it also has a hundred prophecies that have come true and are still coming true until Jesus' return. ORRRR B. You have a "theory" made up from men (who think they are smart) that say we came from "monkeys" The choice for me is rather simple..The Bible is too perfect, where all the pieces of the puzzle are coming together and for those of of that actually read the old testament and compare it to the new testament it is all laid out for us.

Yes, i believe in you too reneh2o. The Bible is just too perfect and makes someone wants to beat popularity of The Bible and get Noble. I hope darwin already knows the real truth over there. And i pray to GOD for mercy on him. GOD, please forgive darwin.

The theory of evolution does not satisfy me. I strongly believe in the creation story...I guess it's just a matter of faith, some day we will indeed find out which of the two is correct!

I believe in the theory of evolution. It's a proven fact that genetic mutations can occur in a species, and I think these simple genetic mutations can cause a species to develop slowly over time, until they reach the point they are at today. The Earth is probably over 10,000,000,000 years old or so, so that's a lot of time for major changes to happen.

You believe that man developed from monkeys right? If so, why have they stopped developing new ones? Today, the difference between man and monkey is very clear. Could you please tell me why these species fail to undergo the series of developments. Thanks for responding.

I wouldn't necessarily say it's stopped. A friend of my sister's was born with 6 toes on each foot. However, he ended up having the 6th ones removed. I think Siamese twins can be put into the same category. However, whether that trait lasts or not depends on whether they reproduce and pass down their genes to the next generation. Now, if the person with the abnormality were to reproduce, they would pass those traits down to their children, and there's a possibility that those children will be born with those features. So if a person with 6 toes had a kid, they would probably have 6 toes, too. In the same way, animals have developed fins, wings, feathers, all sorts of features, because of a series of slow, genetic mutations such as these. It's known as survival of the fittest.

eweniks! - it only takes one head to absorb the evidence that god is our creator. how can anyone deney otherwise! only a mighty organizer and lawmaker could direct the powerful forces at work so that they would result in superb organization and law. hence, scientific evidence and reason provide solid backing for the bible's declaration: the heavens are declaring the glory of god; and of the work of his hands the expanse is telling. the bible reasons: every house is constructed by someone, but he that constructed all things is god.

Evolution Is a fact, creation is a bronze Age fairy tale.

I don't believes in the theory of evolution. I only believes in mutations. I also believes those primitives creatures (sapiens) does already lives since the Almighty GOD blows his breath to our ancestor Adam. But they are not "The Perfect One". The questions is: Why they are disappeared?.. The answer is : It happens at the age of Noah Arch (you know what i mean?). Lucifer (Satan) always succeed playing with weak humans mind and soul. The Darwins theory was made from the curiosity of a confused humans mind. He think, he predict, he publish it, and become famous better than the bible. The theory of evolution was created to distract humans basic logical for believes in Almighty GOD Creations. And it works... Millions of peoples get influenced by the theory. But not for me... Not anymore... I hope you too Eweniks.
