The Evolution vs. Creation debate is arguably considered the greatest question of origins, why,
how, and where did everything come from. Science has made the compelling discovery that, at
some point, the universe began. Both sides of the Great Debate now agree that the universe has
not existed eternally. This is where the agreement ends. As far as the "why" and "how" of the
origins, this is where the division and contention begin. There are two basic theories in this Great
Debate. The first is the Creation Model of Origins. This theory maintains that the design
permeating all things implies a Designer. The second theory is the more recent, atheistic
explanation is the Evolution ...view middle of the document...
Creationists believe the universe was designed to be complex
by an intelligent designer. Evolutionists, in their effort to exclude a designer, contend that
complexity has developed from simplicity over time. Evolutionists view time as their solution.
However, hard science tells us that time is the enemy of complexity.
This has been so well documented that it has obtained the stature of a physical law, the second
law of thermodynamics. Creation denotes the existence of a divine Creator who has exercised his
creative abilities, creating this world and the life forms we see. Life is the product of intelligent
contrivance. Thus, apparent design in biology would constitute evidence for a Designer. It is a
self-evident and universally recognized truth, concept and design require an intelligent designer.
So, while recognizing design in biology is not based upon religious premise but upon empirical
observation and logic, it certainly has theological implications. Do we find apparent design in
biology. Yes. In fact, apparent design pervades the biologic realm. When we apply the general
principles of detecting design to living creatures, we find it reasonable to infer the existence of a
Evolution stresses the naturalistic random, descent of all living creature from a common
ancestor who originally evolved from inorganic matter. Life is the product of...
