from elementary school, I have been forcefed Darwin’s great discoveries, how he answered life’s questions for so many people, gave them the tools to question established religion (I fail to see how this was a good thing), blah blah blah. however, upon my recent undertaking of studying my Bible, I have found compelling similarities between Darwin’s theory and the Bible. just wanted to hear some opinions. I appoligize if I make any mistakes anywhere, or if someone else already proposed this theory. Im only 16, so as far as I know no one else had said such, but that doesn’t really stretch too far.
according to scientists, there was a Big Boom that created the sun and the planets.
The Bible teaches that at first there was nothing, only God. they He said - Let there be light
scientists - the combination of the various gasses created the atmosphere
The Bible says God next formed a dome surrounding the earth
scientists - there were most likey volcanoes whose lava created dry land
The Bible says God organized the sea into sections to allow for dry land
scientists - the first organisms came from a combination of gases and most likely could not move
The Bible says God first made plants
scientists - the first organisms lived in the sea, ‘evolving’ from those that could not move
The Bible says God first populated the sea
scientists - these organisms then moved onto land and continued to ‘evolve’
The Bible says God then populated the earth with animals
scientists - men were the last species created
The Bible says humans were the last creation
I know there are some points to be argued, such as the evolving points, but I do believe that all was created by God, and that with more research the two will be compadable, I just find it very interesting that both sequences of events happened in the same order
Other interesting points
The men who wrote down the Inspired word of God, were just that, men. Therefore - particles of sand were most likely the smallest and most logical thing they knew, as they Jewish people came from the Middle Eastern area. Therefore, they would not understand ‘cell’ as anything more than something very small, and sand was something they understood, and also something that matched their skin tone, so when recording the creation of man, they used sand since they would not understand cells.
also, science now claims to be able to trace back the DNA of every person to a single man. well then. where did that first woman come from? EXACTLY - from ADAM, as the Bible describes. I truly believe that we Christians must simply be patient, that in time, scientists will simply prove what we already know.
