Creation? Evolution? Or a bit of both...
"All great truth begins as blasphemy." George Bernard Shaw
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth... "
I've been watching with interest a number of local cable access programs dealing with the subject of creationism vs. evolution. Both sides seem adamant: we are right. Can both sides be right?
First, the theory of evolution as laid down by Charles Darwin has many holes and even the evolutionists are aware of it. Things like long strands and repetitions of amino acids, and DNA stuff that boggles the mind. Even temperatures in places that should still be cold, and cold spots that should have warmed up four billion years ago. That sort of thing. And eyes can't come into existence fully formed according to the Darwinian perspective; everything has to evolve gradually, slowly, in small increments.
But an eye, only in part, serves no purpose.
The eye must come already intact. It cannot do that according to the theory of evolution. Same with other organs and materials in bodies, plants, and even water.
It's not only complicated, but also weird. Both sides push positions that bear more critical investigation.
