Ask Adam:
Episode 007: Faith in Creation or Evolution?

Creation or evolution? My-oh-my this is one of the big ones. Here’s the exact wording of the question:

Which do you think takes more faith: believing in evolution or believing God created the world, and why?

Sounds like this question is more about faith than if evolution or creationism is true. But hey, we’ll take on both aspects. Did God create all living things or was everything that came into being formed by evolutionary means? Hey, how about both? And how does faith really fit into all of this? Adam not only answers this age-old question but also answers why we ask it.

    i used to be a strong believer in creation and what not, but that end when i decided to go back to school. granted yes just a JC however after a few science classes you are kind of forced to open your eyes and the realism 6000 years is a little silly.

      Thanks for the input hurd4. Adam and I recently saw a movie called “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed”. Ben Stein put this one together. I’ve been a staunch believer in evolution since I understood what it meant and I always scoffed at the notion that people would dismiss science because of their religious beliefs. After seeing this movie though I learned that true science never dismisses anything unless it is proven untrue. With that in mind, God could very well have created all life with the aid of evolution and the creation of life at the very beginning itself (if there is such a beginning). I personally believe in evolution because science has proven that it exists. Although science hasn’t proven God, it hasn’t disproved God and therefore I still believe in God.
      To say the Earth is only 6,000 is silly because science has proven that the Earth is far older and this is a perfect example for religious people to consider. To dismiss science simply because it proves your preconceived beliefs to be wrong is ignorance. And this is at the very heart of what Jill’s question means. Fearing that science will disprove your religious beliefs means that you do not have much faith at all.

      I do not know that the understanding that the world is older than 6000 years is immediate dismissal of creation. Don said it when he said that there is no proof to the contrary. I will also admit that science, as far as I can fathom, cannot disprove God. I think that might be why many Scientists find it hard to cope with. In a field where you’re only as great as that which you dethrone, there will always be a lingering anomoly. A portion of the equation which you cannot perfectly explain.
      It is my belief that the two can peacefully coexist, and the depths that science helps uncover are simply adding to the complexity and beauty of the world created for us.
      Now anyone who knows my Sunday schedule knows I’m far removed from a “Christian” mindset. I am as far removed from “Christ” as the son of God as I am in believing that we were spontaneously created, completely adept at being human over the course of six days.
      Ultimately I’ll always stand by my belief that the beauty of the technique used in creating the universe is proof that there is God… until that theory is disproved. And I invite people to disprove this scientifically. If Scientists and Philosophers haven’t done it, I highly doubt the internet will do it…but please… I do enjoy new observations. -Adam
