Creationism vs. Evolution
In my short life on this planet I have come to question things
that many take upon blind faith. We all know that we must some day
die; yet we continuously deny the forces at work inside ourselves,
which want to search out the answers of what may or may not come
after. It is far easier for humanity to accept that they will go to a
safe haven and be rewarded for their lives with pleasures and
fantasies of an unfathomable scale than to question the existence of a
supposed omnipotent being. Yet, there are a few of us humans who tend
to question the why's and wherefore's that society puts forth to us.
We question the existence of God, or the creation of mankind rather
than blindly accepting faith-filled beliefs we may received from our
parents as children. Perhaps it is because we live in a nation filled
with many peoples of different beliefs whose Gods are all so varied
and different that it is difficult to fathom that they are all the
same divine being. It is also plausible that we just have a desire to
quench the thirst for knowledge that lies deep within ourselves. As
for myself, I cannot believe in a being which created a universe and a
multitude of worlds in a rather short period of time then deigns to
lower itself into becoming a puppet-master and "pulling the strings"
of the Earth and all of the people therein.
Since this paper touches upon many scientific terms, I feel
that in order for the reader to correctly grasp the content I must
first define three words: Theory, Law, and Hypothesis. The definitions
will allow for a greater understanding of this essay and give us an
even ground upon which to begin.
