Evolution or Creation

If evolution is the guiding force in human development, how is it that higher forms of life evolved with male and female sexes? If humans are the pinnacle of the evolutionary process, how is it that we have the disadvantage of requiring a member of the opposite sex to reproduce, when lower forms of life—such as bacteria, viruses and protozoa—are sexless and far more prolific? If they can reproduce by far simpler methods, why can’t we? If evolution is true, what went wrong?

Let’s take it a step further. If humans are the result of evolution continually reinforcing characteristics that offer a survival advantage while eliminating those that hinder perpetuation, how can we explain a human infant?

Among thousands of species the newly born (or newly hatched) are capable of survival within a matter of days or, in some cases, only minutes. Many never even see their parents. Yet, among humans, an infant is utterly helpless—not for days but for up to several years after birth.

A human baby is reliant on adults for the nourishment, shelter and care he or she needs to survive. Meanwhile, caring
for that helpless infant is a distinct survival disadvantage for adults, since giving of their time and energy lessens
their own prospects for survival.
If evolution is true, and humans are the pinnacle of the evolutionary process,why does a process as basic as
human reproduction fly in the face of everything that evolution holds true?
Regrettably, such obvious flaws in the theory are too often overlooked. Even Charles Darwin,whose theories about evolution took the world by storm, had second thoughts. In his
later years he reflected on what he had started: “I was a young man with unformed ideas. I threw out queries,  suggestions,wondering all the time over everything; and to
my astonishment the ideas took like wildfire.
People made a religion of them” (William Federer, America’s God and Country, 1996, p. 199, emphasis added). Now, almost a century and a half after the publication of Darwin’s Origin of Species, we can see where his thinking has led. In Europe in particular, belief in a personal God has plummeted. In the United States, court decisions have interpreted constitutional
guarantees of freedom of religion as freedom from religion—effectively banning public expression of religious beliefs and
denying the country’s rich religious heritage.


 Whether evolution is true or not in science, God’s creation though a mystery still is the founding faith of Christianity.
