One of the greatest unsolved mysteries in the world is, â€œWhere did humans come from?â€ This should be an interesting point of discussion because, who wouldnâ€™t want to know how humans were created. I was introduced to this question early in my life. As I was raised I was told of an all-powerful god that created the universe, earth, and all its inhabitants. When I went to school I was exposed to the ideas of the â€œbig bang theoryâ€ and evolution. With all these possibilities whirling through my mind, I decided to try and find the answer; were humans created from sticks and mud, or are we just sophisticated monkeys? I know with this topic in discussion, I could offend some of my readers. While writing this paper I will try and be as unbiased as possible and state negative and positive ideas of both theories. I will explore both issues with an open mind. Hopefully after this assignment I will find an answer for this problem. Then my mind will finally will have a chance to rest on this dilemma. .
As I entered this assignment I figured that it would be quite easy finding many sources of information to help me as I create my draft. I first logged on to the internet and went to the ask jeeves website (http://www.ask.com/). I searched for â€œcreation vs. evolutionâ€ and found countless sources of interesting facts. One problem that I experienced while searching various websites was that most sites were not openly minded. There were many that just focused against creation of evolution. I had learned of Charles Darwin during a science class in high school and I went to the library to read of his past experiences. After gathering a good amount of information and creating a research log I decided to proceed to the next step and write what I had learned. .
The idea of God creating the heavens and earth seemed to me, at the time, a reasonable explanation for the predicament my mind was in.
