Evolution vs Creation


Evolution or Creation?

    "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our own likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."
                                                                                          Gen. 1:26 KJV


   Is the Theory of Evolution true or false? In 1831 the famous British naturalist Charles Darwin decided to set out on a five-year voyage around the world. Surprised by some highly unusual animal species he observed on the Galapalos Islands off the coast of South America, Darwin developed a controversial theory based on the earlier Charles Russel Wallace "survival of the fittest" theory that inferred animal species were altered, and even newly created, through the gradual process of genetic adaptation to new and different environments over time. Darwin theorized it was this same process that was responsible for the development of all species, including man.

   Darwin theorized that man had slowly evolved from the lesser apes over a time period of approximately 3 million years. Darwin's theory infuriated many people in the religious community, who believed in the biblical concept of Original Creation. Darwin's Theory of Evolution was soon taught in America's classrooms and resulted in a court battle in Tennesee to prevent the teaching of Darwin's theory in public schools.

   Archeological digs were immediately initiated all over the world to locate the many "missing links" between apes and humans. Archeologists were able to identify a few examples of so-called missing links, but they were found only in the most recent portion of the last million years of human development. These creatures still possessed large, well developed canine teeth, long arms, short legs, and feet shaped like hands for climbing. In the 1960s, scientists and academics were able to convince the U.S. Supreme Court that Darwin's theory of evolution should be allowed to be taught in public schools all over America.

   In 1974 however, a truly shocking archeological specimen was unearthed in Africa that would totally undermine Darwin's controversial theory. The discovery of "Lucy" would prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that mankind had in fact walked on Earth well over 3 million years ago, at the very beginning of Darwin's famous cycle of human evolution. According to Darwin's original theory, man was not supposed to appear until the end of the evolutionary cycle, not at its very beginning. The new species known as "A. aferensis" was an upright walking hominid, possessing long legs, short arms, teeth with no canine development, and feet shaped just like those of modern humans. In fact, they looked very much like today's African pigmies! Darwin's many supporters were both shocked and dismayed by this embarassing new discovery, and wasted no time in covering up its true significance.
