AbstractThis paper presents the importance for Christians to be involved in the origins debate Although many times Christians are intimidated by the so-called evidence which contradicts the biblical account of creation this paper explores the problems with accepting outside ideas and attempting to reconcile them with the Word of God forming a syncretism between evolution and the Bible In addition this paper briefly explores evidence which supports the creation account found in the first chapter of Genesis This paper argues for a proper understanding of the account of creation and for a better understanding of the scientific evidence as it relates to creationOver the course of humankind man has fought to understand the origin of this world and all that is within it From the Buddhist beliefs that creation is a cyclical non-ending process to the Aztec belief that four gods created this world to the belief that the universe and life as we know it originated by chance mankind has been plagued with a desire to know understand and explain the origin of life as we know it Almost 152 years ago English naturalist Charles Darwin wrote a book that altered the course of the origins debate His book On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle of Life introduced the scientific theory of natural selection Based on his observations while aboard the HMS Beagle Darwin inferred that over time the small changes that suit individuals to their environment are eventually inherited by their offspring resulting in populations changing Ultimately these variations accumulate over time to form new species Mayr 1982 The theory of natural selection has become central to the modern theory of evolution in many cases being erroneously taught as the only truly scientific theory on the origin of this world However even with the advances of technology and the amount of data that we have the origins debate continues
