Description : Can the Biblical account of creation be reconciled with current scientific beliefs? For over a century, the Holy Bible’s story of creation has come under considerable scrutiny and derision by the scientific community. The length of creation days, the Biblical order of creation, and man’s origin have all been the subjects of heated debates — debates that cast further doubts on Biblical accuracy. But is such derision warranted? The Theory of Creation boldly answers that very question. Rather than denounce other theories or repudiate accepted scientific beliefs, this is a comprehensive and objective analysis of the first story of the Bible (Genesis 1:1 - 2:4). Each verse is carefully examined for its scientific meaning, the original Hebrew text is often referenced, popular theories are explored, and the purpose and implications of God’s actions are addressed. Finally, the Biblical account of creation is compared to the scientific record. In this era of moral relativism, when Biblical values are condemned and the sanctity of the Holy Bible is often ridiculed, validation of the creation story would be a source of inspiration for believers everywhere. In The Theory of Creation, Jim Schicatano answers the enduring questions of science and resolves the Biblical Creation debate.

Description : Where did you come from? Why are you here? Did you evolve from a monkey, or were you created by God? Science and religion have been at odds since the beginning of time, but what would happen if they finally agreed to work together? What if scientific findings were used to prove religious beliefs instead of disprove them? What if religious beliefs were used to fill in the gaps that science cannot solve? Religion negates science by claiming the universe is too complex to have created itself, and science negates religion by claiming it is too complex to have been created by intelligent design. Author Marlin Zimmerman negates them both by posing an interesting take on history's longest argument. After examining the text of Genesis and the scientific findings relating to the theory of evolution, decomposition, and fossil records, Zimmerman presents a new theory—The Wheel Theory—which claims that the earth was created by God as a mature system, fully functioning with all biological laws intact, complete with a fossil record and history. Examining the Elephant encourages you to put your differences aside, understand that science and religion both study the same elephant, and accept a modern-day theory on creation.

Description : A history of Creationism in Europe, from its reception to its rise and the response that has followed. For decades, the creationist movement was primarily situated in the United States. Then, in the 1970s, American creationists found their ideas welcomed abroad, first in Australia and New Zealand, then Korea, India, South Africa, Brazil, and elsewhere—including Europe, where creationism plays an expanding role in public debates about science policy and school curricula. In this, the first comprehensive history of creationism in Europe, leading historians, philosophers, and scientists narrate the rise of—and response to—scientific creationism, creation science, intelligent design, and organized antievolutionism in countries and religions throughout Europe. Providing a map of creationism in Europe, the authors chart the history of creationist activities and strategies. Over the past forty years, creationism has spread swiftly among European Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Hindus, and Muslims, even as anti-creationists sought to halt it. Anti-evolution messages gained such widespread approval, in fact, that in 2007 the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe passed a resolution advising member states to “defend and promote scientific knowledge” and “firmly oppose the teaching of creationism as a scientific discipline on an equal footing with the theory of evolution.” Creationism in Europe offers an introduction to the cultural history of modern Europe, the variety of worldviews in Europe, and the interplay of science and religion in a global context. It will be of interest to students and scholars in the history and philosophy of science, religious studies, and evolutionary theory, as well as policy makers and educators concerned about the spread of creationism in our time.

Description : Evolutionists, Creationists and Intelligent Design theorists have been arguing the questions of the origin of the universe for decades. To the surprise of many, the argument is not simply scientific, Philosophy and point of view often skew the facts. In recent years the battle has escalated, isolating the groups, so the productive communication and genuine debate has become impossible. In this book we look for answers from philosophy, time, life, anthropology, the experts, Columbus & Galileo and the Soul. Can they help us get to the truth?

Description : Scientific Essay from the year 2007 in the subject English - Discussion and Essays, grade: 2,0, University of Linz (Internationales Management: Abteilung fur Fachsprachen und interkulturelle Kommunikation), course: Englisch - Text Produktion 1 (B2+), language: English, abstract: "God created the universe to look old." This is just one argument of just one creationism theory. Evolutionism is not the only theory of how the earth and every living being were created. People who believe in a supernatural "higher being" involved into the development of life claim that creationism is a science too. But if God created the universe to look old, though the Bible is an unquestioned truth: Is God a deceiver? US creationists usually support a literal interpretation of the Bible, although even the Vatican itself claimed that the evolution theory by Darwin is compatible with the history of creation written in the Bible. (Pope Benedict XVI., 2007) The following text will focus on the discussion between creationists and evolutionists in the USA. The two most common theories in the USA are "Scientific Creationism" and "Intelligent Design Creationism." The dossier will cover the position of the creationists in respect of the US education system, their involvement in political decisions and the "Institute of Creation Research." As the theory of creationism is found not only in devout regions of the USA but worldwide, the paper will also give a comparison of the situation in the USA and Europe."

Description : The development of science has generated a strong debate between creationists and evolutionists. While evolutionists claim to have reason and empirical data on their side, the creationist view is based on revelation and hence often decried as regressive. This book hopes to undo some of that misunderstanding especially with regard to Vedic theories of creation by describing how the Vedic ideas are not just modern in many cases, but also useful to science in some cases.This book describes the Vedic theory of creation in a language that can be followed by the lay person. The book doesn't expect knowledge of Vedic texts, or of Sanskrit in which these texts were originally written. This English expose is meant to bring some obscure topics in Vedic philosophy to the educated lay person who is interested in the question of origins.The theory of Six Causes is not just about motion in matter, where scientific theories excel, but also about other parts of conscious experience that can't be viewed as motion in matter. The Vedic view covers sensations, mind, intelligence, unconscious and a functional description of the body, besides a material one. The theory of Six Causes can hence also be viewed as a theory of conscious experience.

Description : In light of the embattled status of evolutionary theory, particularly as "intelligent design" makes headway against Darwinism in the schools and in the courts, this now classic account of the roots of creationism assumes new relevance. Expanded and updated to account for the appeal of intelligent design and the global spread of creationism, The Creationists offers a thorough, clear, and balanced overview of the arguments and figures at the heart of the debate. Praised by both creationists and evolutionists for its comprehensiveness, the book meticulously traces the dramatic shift among Christian fundamentalists from acceptance of the earth's antiquity to the insistence of present-day scientific creationists that most fossils date back to Noah's flood and its aftermath. Focusing especially on the rise of this "flood geology," Ronald L. Numbers chronicles the remarkable resurgence of antievolutionism since the 1960s, as well as the creationist movement's tangled religious roots in the theologies of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and Adventists, among others. His book offers valuable insight into the origins of various "creation science" think tanks and the people behind them. It also goes a long way toward explaining how creationism, until recently viewed as a "peculiarly American" phenomenon, has quietly but dynamically spread internationally--and found its expression outside Christianity in Judaism and Islam.

Description : Charles Robert Darwin’s 1859 landmark book, "On the Origin of Species," introduced the theory of biological evolution to the masses and kicked off a controversy of ideas that persists to this day. Darwin knew he would face religious opposition to a theory of creation that differed from the story in Genesis, but he probably didn’t imagine how long that opposition would last. More than 150 years after "Origin," the fight over teaching evolution rages on. Creationists, or those who hold the belief that the universe and all life was made by divine creator, have tried to use a myriad of tactics either to ban the teaching of evolution entirely or to have creationism and/or intelligent design taught alongside it in public schools. In this eBook, "Evolution vs. Creationism: Inside the Controversy," we take a close look at the rise of Darwinism, the arguments and opposition by the creationist movement, whether faith and science can coexist and what could happen if the U.S. continues on an anti-science trajectory. In “The Origin of Darwinism,” author C.D. Darlington provides historical context by looking at how the work of other scientific pioneers laid the foundation for "Origin" and how Darwin’s own ideas “evolved” over time. “A Witness at the Scopes Trial” is a fascinating first-hand account of the 1925 court case where Tennessee biology teacher John Thomas Scopes was tried for teaching evolution. John Rennie’s “15 Answers to Creationists Nonsense” is a thoughtful, concise refutation of the main arguments against evolution, such as “Evolution is just a theory.” On the flip side, in “Should Science Speak to Faith?” scientists Laurence M. Krauss and Richard Dawkins discuss whether science and faith can coexist. With this eBook, we went from deep in our archives to current events to examine the revolutionary impact of Darwin’s theory and the controversy that continues today.

Description : I understand that some may call me controversial for writing this thesis. In fact, a good friend of mine refuses to look at it for fear of going against the thoughts of his denomination on the subject. The controversial part is a phrase. It states that God's science and man's science are not the same. In ancient times, the phrase was true. We had no science. But we have learned more over the centuries. Will we ever grow into God's science? I don't know. I'm not trying to convince you of anything. The thesis is written in a way that allows all to form their own opinions. As far as I can see, anything less is blindness. The scientists that made me ask, "If not God's science, then whose?" are stilling us about the boundaries of our universe. I thank them deeply for their contributions. They are the Bible, Josh Wilferd, Nova, Albert Einstein, Neal DeGrasse Tyson, esteemed astrophysicists, World Book, Inc., the Green Kingdom Volume 6, Prentiss Hall Elementary science textbook, the crew of the Hubble Telescope, and NASA. They want to tell us what they know. I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this project. I hope as much that you enjoy reading it.

Description : For over a century, evolutionists have been deliberately interpreting all scientific data on origins to fit Darwin's theory of evolution. For instance, although the evidence in the living world and in all reliable fossil deposits shows abrupt gaps, evolutionists interpret these gaps as missing links to justify the numerous transformations that the theory predicts. The evolutionist paradigm recently suffered a fatal blow when empirical science ripped off its chapter on junk DNA, which Darwinists have idolized as the evolutionary key in unfolding ancestral history and thus the unique testimony against a purely creationist worldview. All along, 'just-so' explanations have persistently been tendered to camouflage the discrepancies. In Farewell to Darwinian Evolution, Michael Ebifegha presents a historical account of God's creation patent and seal and shows that they corroborate the scientific evidence. Arguing that a report claiming both invention and ownership of the cosmos must override any theory relating to events in the cosmos that were never witnessed, Ebifegha insists it is time to bid farewell to Darwinian transformational evolution (macroevolution). The focus in science, he stresses, must be limited to microevolution-the aspect that underpins modern advances in medicine, agriculture, and selective breeding. Dr. Michael Ebifegha is a scholar with international experience. He is a graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, Nigeria (M.Sc. Applied Geophysics); Carleton University, Canada (M.Sc. Physics); and the University of Toronto (B.Ed., Ph.D. Physics). He is currently a full-time science and mathematics instructor at the Toronto District School Board. Ebifegha is the author of The Darwinian Delusion Creation or Evolution? and most recently 4th: Refuting the Myth of Evolutionism and Exposing the Folly of the Clergy Letters.

Description : Technology and science have done irreparable damage to the theory of evolution in the last few decades. Yet it is still taught in our schools as a fact. This book takes the argument of the ages to a new level. Using facts, not faith, the authors prove that man's explanation for our inception just doesn't work! And the more knowledge expands, the more we shoot holes in all of those unproven, longstanding theories of evolution, Big Bang, punctuated equilibrium and others. As DNA and fossil evidence seem to betray man's best efforts to come up with proof, the Biblical account comes into clearer focus.

Description : This book provides working examples of how different teachers, scientists, and theologians have dealt with problems of "creation science" versus evolutionary concepts. A 1982 symposia on the topic of science and creation was so well received that the participants were asked to submit formal presentations; this book is a collection of these papers. The papers include: (1) "Introduction: Science or Belief, a False Dichotomy" (Robert W. Hanson); (2) "The Age of the Earth, of Life, and of Mankind: Geology and Biblical Theory versus Creationism" (James W. Skehan, S.J.); (3) "Science, Rationality, and the Creation/Evolution Dispute" (Dorothy Nelkin); (4) "Science versus Revealed Truth: Meeting the Challenge of Creationism in the Classroom" (Wayne Moyer); (5) "Creationism in Iowa: Two Defense Strategies" (Stanley Weinberg); (6) "Creationism in Kentucky: The Response of High School Biology Teachers" (William E. Ellis); (7) "a Two-Model Creation versus Evolution Course" (William M. Thwaites); (8) "Educational Approaches to Creationist Politics in Georgia" (Kenneth Saladin); (9) "Creation, Evolution, or Both? A Multiple Model Approach" (Craig E. Nelson); (10) "Skepticism: Another Alternative to Science or Belief" (Stephen G. Brush); and (11) "The Creationism Issue: a Theologian's View" (Langdon Gilkey). Included in the appendices are "The Arkansas Creation Science Statute" (Act 590 of 1981) and "Creationism in Schools: The Decision in McLean versus the Arkansas Board of Education." (Tw).

Description : A book that takes a look at the theory of evolution, and a look at creation. Some of the questions that are covered in her new book are - What are the real facts behind evolution? Were we designed by Intelligence? Did dinosaurs and man really coexist? What the earth's crust tells us. How the Great Flood fits the fossil record. What were the Father of Evolution Charles Darwin's real thoughts on his own theory of evolution? What some evolutionists say on this theory. Louis Pasteur did multiple experiments on Darwin's theory. What were his findings? All evidence and proof point to ... ? The evolution/creation controversy is not just a scientific issue.In her book, she is going to show you the reasons why she thinks the evolution theory is wrong and how creation gives a better account. She believes students-and people in general-should feel free to choose for themselves among these ideas and to be able to exercise their freedoms of thought and of opinion.

Description : Evolution and Creationism are compared. The arguments used by both sides against each other are presented to the reader and the fallacies, if they exist, are pointed out as well. This is done without the invocation of religion or the existence of a deity. The stances adopted by both sides are very different Creationists have concentrated on the addressing the deficiencies of the other side whereas evolutionists pay more attention to proving the validity of their own arguments. Both theories have substantial issues and neither satisfies the necessary requirements. In response to that, the author has presented his own theory which is extremely plausible but has none of the problems of the other two.

Description : This short, beautiful book is about the first prophet (peace be upon him), and creation and the theory of evolution. It all began with the first man, who was also the first prophet, namely Adam (peace be upon him). The theory of evolution that man is the offspring of apes, is a widely accepted theory. Although there have been many scientists, atheists included, who said that the theory of evolution is false. The reason for bringing forward an idea such as the theory of human evolution is to make humans forget that God, the Creator, the Maker, and the Fashioner, created them. If people begin to believe that they occurred by chance, and that their ancestors were apes, then they feel no responsibility towards God.

Description : This book tells the story of the creation of the Universe, the creation of our solar system and the formation and development of plant and animal life on Earth, prehuman hominids and the eventual creation of our species, Homo sapiens, 200,000 years ago in East Africa. It offers analysis of the evidence as to the crop circles and their origins and as to extraterrestrial intelligent life in the cosmos. Creation reconciles creationism with science and the theory of evolution. Human beings are not descended from modern apes, but prehuman bipedal hominids were evolved by God from a common ancestor 7 million years ago. Although Darwin's fundamental thesis that all life shares common ancestors is correct, it does not follow that species originate from natural selection. The Universe really is 13.7 billion years old and commenced with the Big Bang. The Big Bang expansion is still ongoing and galaxies continue to rush away from each other. Earth really is 4.54 billion years old. But what caused the Big Bang? And what caused complex life to develop on Earth but nowhere else in this sun system? Why have the Martian Rovers uncovered no fossils or even a shellfish on Mars although oceans once covered that planet's surface? Why are three-quarters of the Earth's surface covered with water?

Description : Who are we? Where are we from? These questions have troubled people for centuries. Textbooks have long taught us that humans evolved from apes. Today, a new science, Molecular Anthropology, tells us that: nearly 7 billion humans in the world share a common grand, grand…father, the Y-chromosome Adam. And they also share a common grand, grand…mother, the Mitochondrial Eve. The difference in DNA coding is only one-thousandth between any persons in the world. After reading this book, you will be convinced that humans could not have been the result of Evolution. In 1987, Professor Allan Wilson’s research team at UC Berkeley proposed the “Mitochondrial Eve Theory” by DNA coding that all humans originated from one woman who lived about 200,000 years ago. In 1995, Drs. Dorit et. proposed the “Adam Theory” by DNA coding of Y-Chromosomal that all humans originated from one man. There are two kinds of DNA encoding in our body: chromosomal DNA and mitochondrial DNA. The chromosome consists of three types: autosome, Y chromosome, and X chromosome. The Eve Theory is founded on the mitochondrial DNA while the Adam Theory is founded on the Y chromosome. So what can we see from the autosome? The simple biological fact that “there are no differences between the autosomes of male and female”, tells us a striking truth that is: the autosome of all men in the world must come from only one original version, and cannot be produced randomly. Therefore, the authors of this book have established a “The only one Adam theory” by the consistency of autosomal DNA coding of men and women. All human beings on earth came from him and the earliest female ancestor came from this male ancestor. In addition, we also provide you with an answer which science cannot offer: Creationism.

Description : McKown (philosophy, Auburn U.) attacks the notion that the Biblical myth of creation can stand on equal footing with the theory of evolution. He points out ambiguities and rhetorical ploys, notes where creationists conveniently slip out of a literal reading of scripture (and traces the logical path of not doing so), and warns of the dangers the movement poses to political and educational health.
