The Creation or Evolution Debate

The Creation/Evolution debate is a subject which is not only vital for the Church in the 21st Century but is coming increasingly to the fore even in scientific circles as more and more “honest” scientists and evolutionists are being faced with the facts of evolution’s inadequacy to explain the origin of the universe and of all animate life within it.

This often memorized opening verse of the Book of Genesis has been the answer, from the beginning of recorded history until recent times, to man’s question “How did the cosmos begin?” But today, in an age of skepticism and unbelief which has inherited the rationalistic criticism of the Bible from way back in the nineteenth century along with the so-called “indubitable findings” of modern science, can we say that statement is still relevant in this computer space-age? Is this a valid and believable account of our origins?
