Hola my peeps! I guess if you're here that means you are either ready to argue whatever I'm going to say, argue in the comments, are confused in what you believe, or you're just here to laugh at the people doing these things! Either way, I'm not really biased on these topics so whatevs. I guess this is really going to show points of each side and probably cause some doubt... if there wasn't any to begin with.
Evolution is change in heritable traits of biological populations over successive generations. Charles Darwin is the best known person who introduced the Theory of Evolution. Though many philosophists back in the day were already talking about it.
Usually the people who believe in Evolution say that everything comes from a common ancestor. Usually we are said to be descendants from the Ape because we have very common bone structures and features. Though actually that might be the closest relative if we go alllll the way back people argue that we stem from fish. Fish to amphibeans, amphibeans to reptile, reptiles to mammals, then hominid to human.
Many evolutionists look at fossils as an argument. They say if God is real than why is it that fossils are layered in the rock as Evolution predicts they are? Do you think he made it so everything could be predicted by people who says he doesn't exist. Apparently he didn't really care that it would cause debate.
They also talk about genetic patterns. They say that if he wanted he could have had every orgainism on this earth have different genetic patterns and material. Instead, we have a genetic code that has very insignificant differences between organisms. Which would make sense if there is a common ancestor.
By the way! Someone being an evolutionist does not mean they are an atheist. 40% of scientists think God guided the evolutionary process.
Creationism is the belief that the Universe and Life originate "from specific acts of divine creation."
There are actually multiple types of creationism but I'm not going to get into that.
Creationalists argue that there is no evidence of evolution because there is no transitional forms of fossils. Evolutionists argue back with this that yes, fossils DO show a change over time.
They also say that history is too short and that if the world is as old as evolutions says it is more stone-age skeletons should be found, more cave paintings should have been found, there should be more sea-floor sediment, and there should be A LOT more sodium chloride in the sea.
Another one of their argument is why? What is the purpose of evolution, why would it exist. With God there is a reason, with evolution, there is not. (I don't really get why we ask why anyways. Do we need to know everything to live our lives?!)
I don't really belong to a side to be honest. I don't need to know the answers to any of this to be content in life. I'm not about to question why or how I got here my whole life. I find things in both arguments that are questionable. I mean about the genetic code thing, wouldn't you want to do less work and just tweak the genetic codes of things instead of creating a new one for each organism if YOU were creating life? I'd make it as easy as I could. Also fossils not changing? I mean really guys, you can see fossils change over time. There's at least adaptation which goes hand in hand with evolution.
But yeah, feel free to comment whatever is on your mind now!
