i am doing a research paper on evolution versus creation. i was curious as to see how evolution can even be real. its a good theory but i dont think its possible. how did we come about? there had to be something started. God had to create the world because there is no other explanation. If it was the big bang theory, how were all the gases and things created? something had to be created for evolution to start taking place. i cannot wait to hear your comments
Ok...let me explain to you HOW you are confused, first.
1) Your paper is on evolution versus creation"ism". Evolution explains the diversity of life. Creationist attempts to explain both how life began and the diversity of life by citing a book that has not passed the scrutiny of any scientific method.
In reference to your "versus"...why do you need to rule one out with the other. Can they not co-exist in your mind? Is it not true that if God created the universe, he also created science - which is his way of letting us look into his toolbox? Wouldn't you agree that science and religion attempt to answer different questions. "Why" we are here, as opposed to "How" we are here?
2) In response to: "how were all the gases and things created? something had to be created for evolution to start taking place."
Take a chemistry class. Take a biology class. Intro levels explain this.
What we cannot answer though, is where the very first elements came from. We do not know the causation of anything before the big bang...and you know what, that's ok. It's ok to say you don't know something. There's no reason to attribute something we don't know to something we make up.
I doubt you are interested in learning anything about abiogenesis or evolution, or understanding that they have stood up to the scientific method, and creationism will not go near it. If you are though, educate yourself to what we know we can reproduce and test, here:
