The Bible is not the only source that boats about the creation of the universe. Some non-biblical evidences for creation can be found in geology, math, genetics, biology, and anthropology. The fossil record in geology shows that there is not a pattern of transitional or intermediate fossils between species. Also, there is not a leap from non-life to life. Therefore, geology demonstrates that there is a Creator because everything appeared at one point in time. There was not a transitional period of a species evolving into a new creature. Thus, the geology record disproves evolution. Furthermore, math demonstrates a Creator because the probability for spontaneous generation is so small that it is highly improbable. In addition, genetics shows that there is a Creator because it demonstrates that microevolution is possible, but disproves vertical (macro) evolution. Biology verifies the need of a Creator because there are various species becoming extinct, but there are not any new species developing. This is shown both in the past and present. Thus, there is not a working mechanism for increasing complexity. Biology also shows that each new generation does not have improved life forms (this validates the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics). Finally, anthropology shows that human civilization started life with complex languages and major civilizations. Thus, there was not a period of evolution for humans or language. All in all, there are many non-Biblical evidences for creation.
Even the fact that the universe is fine-tuned solidifies that there was a Creator. The fine-tuning of the universe is incredibly important. There are especially five things that play a part in the fine-tuning. They include a balanced electromagnetic fo...

Essay on Astronomy: A Fad Science? - Astronomy: A Fad Science. NOTE: This paper was written for an English class and a non astronomy audience. Thus, several arguments were left out to make the material easier to understand for the target audience. These arguments would include (but are not limited to) dark energy, dark matter, and the inflationary model of the universe. If I later have time I may revise this paper to cover such topics and be more comprehensive. Science is a field that prides itself on being objective. To help ensure that this objectivity is met, scientists have formed a process to test each hypothesis....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Cosmology and the Bible Essays - As one grows older, he begins to question life and how the universe was made. Therefore, it is vital that he has a solid worldview. This worldview has its foundation in cosmology. Cosmology is defined as the branch of science concerned with origin, structure, changes, and the final destiny of the universe. Therefore, the importance of origins/cosmology in a worldview is that it shapes how one sees the universe. Without studying cosmology, one would not have a firm foundation for his worldview because he would not understand how or why the universe was formed....   [tags: cosmology, universe]

Galileo vs. The Bible Essay - Galileo vs. The Bible Religion and science have always been conflicting studies. Religion, being based on faith, relies on the supernatural to explain life and being. Science, on the other hand, cannot do this. Scientists need to eliminate the possibility of the unexplainable in order to maintain and control group by which to measure other groups. The unexplainable I refer to are the miracles that are commonplace in all supernatural religions. Galileo lived in a time where church was state. The land was ruled according to the words of the bible, and anyone in opposition would be in contempt....   [tags: Papers] 692 words

The Economic Impacts of The European Colonization of The Congo Essay - The Democratic Republic of the Congo was one of the leading nations in the world 22,000 years ago in the field of science and inventions. In the 1950’s, a Belgian archeologist, Prof. J. de Heinzelin, found a 10-cm long bone in Ishango village, near the current border between the Congo and Uganda. Heinzelin noticed patterns on the Ishango bone; he concluded later that the essential use of the prehistoric device was to do arithmetic calculations used as a calculator and a calendar (Pletser 1). The Ishango Bones, though basic, indicate a form of advanced knowledge in mathematics and astronomy the Congolese had 220 centuries ago....   [tags: The Poisonwood Bible]

Black Holes and My Love for Astronomy Essay - When I was growing up there were things in life that always seemed to fascinate me. Most of them were usually science based. Things like elements on the periodic table, where did the stars come from and what lies at the end of the universe. I think the one question that always had my attention was what is a black hole. I can remember asking my parents when I was at about the age of eight or nine what a black hole was, and what was its purpose. Like most people, not really knowing themselves what a black hole was they kind of made up some wild crazy story hoping that I was to young to know the difference between fact or fiction....   [tags: astronomy, ] 837 words

Essay on The Small but Vast Field of Astronomy - Astronomy is a field where one looks into the great expanse of space and tries to find something that will bring the world a little closer to fully understanding the universe. The road to becoming an astronomer is not easy, as one must get an excellent education, hope that there are actual job openings, and then obtain a steady position. In order to be an astronomer, it is required to have a doctorate’s degree in either astronomy or physics (“Physicists and Astronomers”). After finishing their studies, an astronomer can really only hope to be lucky and secure a position working for the government, a university, or a college (“Astronomer Job Description”)....   [tags: astronomy, universe, astronomer]
