In the world there is always debate over the history of man and what crevice mankind crawled out of. There are always two answers that engage this debate. The first is the logical approach that concludes that man evolved from primates or a primitive species or the faith perspective, a higher being created everything and made us what we are for a reason. These two answers toss up two valuable arguments.
Logic or the scientific approach to things has no God that created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. Logic speaks of the big bang with the assembling of our solar system. Eventually creatures inhabited the world and evolved over a period of millions of years and became what we know today as mankind. Scientists take this theory to heart and really have no other explanation for what the world is today. Science goes by a concrete written approach that when asked of any proof of their reasoning a skeleton is found of an Australopithecus or scientists compare the brains of man of this era to eras past. Science always requires physical evidence.
On the topic of faith and religion, that approach is the entirely opposite. There is a higher being that created the world and created all those who inhabit it. Science requires physical evidence, but from a faith point of view that is not always that case. Religion is more of an essence of things; your spirituality and your obedience. Miracles are marked as living proof, but science would just bar it as coincidence and not a miracle from a higher being. The argument that most people on this side of this argument fail to realize is that not every individual has domination of faith, quoting scriptures as proof means nothing if the person knows no affiliation with the faith and doesn’t partake in the activities or holidays. There were obviously no dinosaurs in Jerusalem in the era of Christ, but this debate could wage on forever.
People often take sides of this argument, but has anyone ever asked did this all happen at one time? There is evidence of prehistoric creatures and there is even evidence of the three major faiths: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Maybe these events occurred at once in different parts of the world. There is no direct answer to this question, but the hope of finding an answer keeps this argument waging on and will forever keep it waging on. Only time will tell.
