  • Religion And Science
    • Universal Creation:  Big Bang Theory
      • The Universe was once condensed into one ultra tiny dense particle
      • Suddenly, this particle had enough energy to explode.
      • The mix of gases that were released created the universes
      • Scientists believe this because the universe continues to expand, as it did when the Big Bang allegedly occurred 13.7 BILLION years ago.
    • Universal Creation: Religious
      • Day One:  God created light (day) and dark (night)
      • Day Two: God created the sky
      • Day Three: God created land and the sea.  He also created vegetation
      • Day Four:  God created the Sun, the Moon and the stars to separate day from night.
      • Day  Five:  God created all birds and sea creatures
      • Day Six:  God filled the world with all kinds of animals and put two humans, in his image, on to Earth to rule over the animals.
    • Creation Of Humanity: Religious
      • God put two Humans, in his image, into the Garden Of Eden
      • Adam and Eve then had children of their own: Cain, Abel and Seth.
      • God told them: "Be fruitful and fill the Earth..."
    • Creation Of Humanity: Scientific
      • Charles Darwin set sail on HMS Beagle for the Galapagos Islands
        • He discovered many finches with variations (E.G. Beak shape)
      • Darwin soon came up with the theory of evolution via natural selection, where organisms adapted due to change in their environment.
        • After decades of work, Darwin published his book: " On The Origin Of Species" in 1959, which seemed to disprove 'Lamarcism'
          • Many people did not like Darwin's ideas because they were against religious ideas.
          • Jean-Baptiste Lamarck was sort of right.  He said that when an animal (i.e a giraffe) comes across an obstacle (i.e a tree) it will grow to overcome it.
