The Big Bang Theory suggests that the universe was created, thus everything in the universe was created.
My pen name is Evolution Man and I am the author of the above titled book. The name of the book gives away what the book is about while the intent is threefold. First, it shows one how to embrace science without giving up one’s religious beliefs. Second, it shows how religion answers the questions that science can not. Third, it emphasizes that we all belong to one race with one set of parents.
Evolution is like gravity as it is a law of nature. To what extent one accepts evolution is up to them, the fact that it is similar to gravity supports that it was created. The beauty of this thought process is that the study of science does not refute God but is the study of all that God created through the creation of the laws of nature.
Normally it is thought that these two words, creationism and evolution, can not be used together as they are at the opposite ends of the spectrum. I use the term “Creative Evolution” which is the essence of what the book is about. My thought is that they can be brought together thus giving a better understanding of the function of religion and science.
Believers around the world – Our defense should not be to deny the obvious, but to challenge the origination of the laws.
Many times people who believe in religion do not have a convincing argument for what they believe.
The book addresses this issue by bringing together many different scientific disciplines in order to demonstrate their interrelationships. The two are interdependent which allows for creationists to take a more definitive position on the role of science in their lives.
This approach addresses certain common laws of nature that are common throughout different disciplines. Some of the laws of nature follow:
Laws of Physics
Laws of Chemistry
Laws of Evolution
What is scientific faith? It is the faith of scientists that their professional theories are sound and can be extrapolated to explain areas where there is no proof but only conjecture. This is the case with the origin of life and with the origin of the species.
The second focus of the book addresses how religion answers the questions that science can not answer. As we move from the actual toward the theoretical we also move from the scientific to the religious realm. This thought allows each to serve a different and unique purpose.
The idea of race is not a biological difference but a cultural difference. Science and religion teach us, one race with one set of parents.
Lastly the focus of the book is the fact that Darwinism and Creationism both believe that we had one set of parents. The fact is that all human beings are of one race and are 99% similar. It always seems that people want to focus on the differences when the conversation should be really about similarities. Having this thought in mind it seems that our scientific and religious leaders have fallen short of their obligation of teaching that we all had the same parents either from a religious standpoint of Adam and Eve or from a scientific standpoint of the first Homo sapiens.
One may ask, who are you to challenge what has been written in the stone tablets of science? My response is that I am an average person who lives in the United States and have freedom to think on my own. The United States is one of the few countries in the world which allows everyone to challenge the existing establishment. In other countries Gods of Science are accepted without question because they are the experts. Many scientists like the scientific environment in the United States because it allows them the freedom of challenging the existing theory which they may not be able to do in their native country. Each current theory has individuals that have a vested interest in it by the existing establishment. Sometimes it is these individuals that do not want to accept the new theory.
I write on many related topics to help people gain an understanding of how science and religion are related. One of the examples that I write about emphasizes that theories of science are open to change, with new theory replacing an old theory resulting from new information having been discovered. The science of today will be out dated by the science of tomorrow.
I hope that you enjoy the book.
Thoughts to Ponder
Does not knowing deny the existence of something?
It seems sometimes the description is painstakingly detailed with the expectation that it alone explains the process when in truth it doesn’t.
Evolution seems that is of two types: Adaptive which responds to the environment, Anticipatory which adapts in order to develop something new.
Have you ever noticed that you have an attraction to all living organisms? This is because we are all related.
Filters are the interpretative fabric that allows us to see the truth.
Could there be other senses that we don’t know about because a mutation has not occurred to unlock it?
