Creation Or Evolution

October 23, 2007

“By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the Word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.” – Hebrews 11:3

There’s a lot of discussion today about creation and evolution. It’s really very important, for understanding our origin is central to understanding who we are, why we’re here, and what we’re supposed to do on this planet.

Creation is based on the idea that we’re here by intelligent design, and evolution is based on the idea that we’re here by chance. Which makes the most sense? If I were to tell you that your personal computer actually evolved by chance from an explosion in a factory that makes radios, you’d laugh in my face. Yet, is the computer more complex than a human mind? It’s amazing to me that intelligent people know computers are made by intelligent design, yet when it comes to life and earth’s design they choose to believe “well, it just evolved by chance.” I just don’t have enough faith to believe that. Science helps us fill in some of the details of creation, but God is the intelligent designer behind it all.
