Evolution vs Creationism: The Battle for Truth


Evolution vs Creationism

In the ongoing quest for understanding our origins, the clash between Evolution and Creationism has fueled debates, divided opinions, and sparked controversy among several scholars of all ages. Many people especially among the scientific juggernauts have unashamedly promulgated that their ancestor is the ape but we who are Christians believe that God is the sole creator of man and the universe. Therefore, this article seeks to dig deeper into this age-old discourse and brouhaha, challenging some widely accepted scientific ideologies while fostering an atmosphere of thoughtful discussion rather than outright confrontation. Do you believe in Evolution or Creation? Do you believe that your great grandfather is the chimpanzee? Let us know in the comment section, we will also want to know the evidence you have to  buttresses your belief. 

    Understanding Evolution 

Evolution, as endorsed by the scientific community, posits that life on Earth has gradually developed through a process of natural selection and genetic variation. This theory, attributed to Charles Darwin, has become the cornerstone of biology, explaining the diversity of species over millions of years. However, as we navigate the intricate web of scientific knowledge, it's essential to question and scrutinize these long-held beliefs. Was Darwin all right in his theory of evolution? Can a cockroach evolve into a crocodile? Why haven't all the apes in the forest turned into humans? Why do we still have apes and humans as separate animals in all ages? 

Creationism the Truth of Life 

On the other side of the spectrum lies Creationism, a popular belief rooted in the Christian Bible and other religious texts that States in very clear terms that the almighty God is the Creator and architect of life. As a Christian and Bible student, I strongly believe that the complexity of living organisms, the intricacies of DNA, and the remarkable adaptation of species cannot be mere products of chance but the handwork of the almighty God as enshrined in the Holy scriptures.

The Bible says,  

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1 NKJV

Then God said, “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.”

So GOD CREATED GREAT SEA CREATURES AND EVERY LIVINGSTON THING that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”

So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so.

And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

So GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." Genesis 1:20-27

Without ambiguity the Bible declares that God created every living thing that exists on the planet earth. So no life exists by evolution. Every living thing is a product of creation, the handwork of God. The Bible says God created man in His own image. 

The Psalmist confirms this: 

"Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture." Psalms 100:3

From the book of Genesis to revelation, there are plethora of Scriptures that serve as evidence that Creation is true while evolution is a myth which only exist in the mind of those who have stubbornly refused to believe in God or the Holy Bible. The summary of the whole argument is stated in this way:

"The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein." Psalms 24:1

Faith is not an enemy of science. God is also scientific in nature. Jesus turned water to wine, opened blind eyes, made the lame to walk, opened the ears of the deaf, brought the dead back to life and much more. You can call it a miracle or the supernatural but I call it the science of God. So you can't be truly scientific and deny the existence of God. You can't deny fath and embrace science because science itself was created by faith. With all being said, Creationism challenges the very foundation of evolutionary theory.

               Does God really Exist?

If you have made up your mind to hold on to your own worldview or philosophy on this matter, it doesn't matter if I tell you yes or no. I can quote and sight hundreds of Scriptures that prove in practical terms that God is real but you will never believe them except you have trained your mind to recognise the truth and acknowledge it no matter who is right or wrong. But for the records, God is real. He is more real than we are. If you want to see God I can show you how to see God in less than 1 hour. Yes I can take you there. This is no jokes. If you want to see God: DIE! If you close your mouth firmly and block your nostrils very tight without breathing, I am very sure that in less than 1 hour you will see God.

Rather than adopting the theory of evolution and teaching our children a theory which in reality doesn't exist, let's explore the potential and reality of  Creationism. Truth is not found in the four walls of an institution. Truth is found in God and His word. We don't need to wallow in confusion, Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life" John 14:6

Life originates from God. And God alone is the life giver.

 We need to foster an environment and culture that publicly promotes the study of the Scriptures. We need to encourage scholars from every walk of life to explore, study and share insights and thesis about life's complexities that synchronise with the truth of the Scriptures and the will of God for mankind. This will save our world from philosophical and scientific theorem that are devoid of the will and wisdom of God. There's no life without God. God is life and the only source through which life flows.

Though I do not believe or accept the theory of evolution, I love and respect Darwin for his personality and the great works he did as a Scientist. One of the persistent challenges to the theory of evolution is the fact that the fossil record lacks the transitional forms that should bridge the gap between different species. Could this gap be a result of incomplete fossilization or perhaps a flaw in our understanding of the evolutionary process? In my opinion, I suggest Scientists should keep their skepticism in one corner and dig deeper into the Scriptures for light and understanding. This will help their further explorations and refinement of scientific theories.

The Complexity of the Natural World is an Evidence that the Universe is the artwork of Creation 

Look at the sky, the sun, the moon and the stars. Look at the Ocean and the sea creatures. Look at the trees and their beauty. What do you see? The intricate design observed in living organisms is an evidence of an intelligent creator. Delving into the complexities of molecular biology, we find intricate cellular processes and genetic codes that seem finely tuned. Can evolution account for such intricacies, or does the evidence suggest a guiding hand? Exploring these questions prompts us to reevaluate our understanding of the natural world. Nothing exists by evolution. We are all the creatures of God as enshrined in the Scriptures.

What if the process of evolution is not entirely random, but instead guided by an underlying intelligence of the almighty God? Could evolution and Creationism coexist into a more comprehensive narrative? By challenging the theory of evolution with a scriptural perspective, we open doors to innovative thinking wrapped up in deep Spirituality and therefore Increase the potential for a more nuanced understanding of life's unfolding story.


In the battle for truth between Evolution and Creationism, fostering meaningful dialogue is paramount. Rather than throwing tantrums and negative comments when such matters are being debated, we must embrace the opportunity to explore the two in the light of the Scriptures. By engaging in a constructive exchange of ideas, we not only stimulate our intellectual curiosity but also contribute to a more holistic comprehension of our shared existence. However big or small our philosophy might be, if it doesn't synchronise with the written Scriptures, it cannot be the truth. Evolution and Creationism need not be adversaries because the Bible is not anti-science, we always need to balance our discoveries and ideologies with the truth of the word of God for the good of God and mankind.
