Evolution: A Different Route to the Same Conclusion The argument over how the earth was created has been an ongoing battle for many years. Who really knows if some supreme being created the universe, or if it was the end result of a massive explosion from a single atom? Creation, as defined by Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, is "the act of bringing the world into ordered existence" (Webster's, 304). This seems to imply an immediate action, where the world just appeared and existence all of a sudden began. One argument against Creation is the theory of Evolution, which is defined as "a theory that the various types of animals and plants have their origin in other preexisting types and that the distinguishable differences are due to modifications in successive generations" (Webster's, 431). This simple statement refers to the environment that exists around us today experienced billions of years of changing and adjusting since the beginning of time. The truth of how the world was created still puzzles the minds of every human being even to this day. One can only choose a side and try their best to stand by their beliefs. Through all of the chaos and mayhem, both sides manage to adopt points that basically state the same thing. Supporters of Creation and evolutionists both agree on the following: the earth went from virtually nothing to what it is today, humans walk the earth as the supreme beings on the planet, and the world will eventually become extinct. Both theories result in the world being what it is today; and neither of the explanations for our planet's origin would affect our lives today. The Big Bang Theory advocates that the universe today, was once merely a single atom of enormous energy billions of years ago. After the huge explosion, individual atoms and molecules bonded together to eventually form the earth and all the life that roams its lands. It took a process of many long years for single-celled organisms to form the complex structures of mountains, plants and animals that we see today (Siegel).
