Evolution vs Creation
Evolution and creation are two entirely different theories to understand the origins of Universe, especially mankind. Mankind has always been curious about its roots. Are we created by someone (The Almighty), or are we a result of an evolutionary process. While the debate continues between evolutionists and creationists, there is strong evidence to show that evolution took place on the basis of fossil records. Creation on the other hand is a concept based upon faith and hence not possible to prove. However, creation and evolution are not totally exclusive and incompatible. It is possible for one to believe in creation while at the same time accepting evolutionary process.
The laws of evolution are governed by science (natural laws), while creation is based upon supernatural. Since it is a matter of belief and faith, it can neither be questioned nor countered. Creation does not need a theory to explain as it believes that God created us as we are. Evolution on the other hand explains in scientific terms how man evolved from lower primates.
Creationists believe that God created the Universe as described in Bible in 6 ordinary days, and that animals and plants as we see them today were created by HIM in exactly the same form.
Evolutionists believe in the Big Bang theory that explains the formation of the Universe. They believe that life was formed out of non living things and primates slowly evolved from simplest of life forms in thousands of years.
Christians fear that if the theory of evolution were to be accepted, their belief that God created everything would not hold water and people would not accept existence of God. Creation, being a matter of faith cannot be questioned and proved. In the simplest of words, the biggest difference between evolution and creation is that creation teaches that God created everything while evolution teaches that all living beings came into existence without God. While the theory of creation is based upon Bible and other scriptures, evolution is a theory that is demonstrated through observations and experiments.
• Evolution and creation are two entirely different theories to understand the origins of Universe, especially mankind
• Creation suggests that all life forms, as we see them today were created by an intelligent creator (read God), while evolution suggests that life came into existence from non living things and evolved into complex organisms from simplest of life forms
• While evolution can be demonstrated with the help of experiments, creation is a matter of faith and cannot be questioned
