Need an research paper on creation and science (christianity). Needs to be 1 page. Please no plagiarism. Religion and science For many centuries, science and religion have been in dispute over the origin of our universe and life on our planet. Both sides have conflicting arguments to the account with each having evidence for its account. Religion suggests that the universe was created by a supreme being, God, who created all forms of life in the universe (Cory and David, 12-24) especially our planet earth (Birge 5-12). Science, on the other hand, advocates that our existence on earth is primarily due to a series of evolution in the form with each generation being more complex and advanced than the previous (Birge 63-81). This evolution theory by Charles Darwin has gained popularity among scholars over the years. Other theories proposed by science over the origin and existence of the universe include the big bang theory and the passing star theory.
Creationism faces a lot of opposition socially and politically. Majority of the schools hardly include it in their learning. Evolutionism has a lot of favor, and it is being taught in schools. This is what made the proposed theory of intelligent design face a lot of criticism. The intelligent design theory argues that the universe and its inhabitants are too complex in structure and design to exist as a mere product of evolution (Davis et al 36-61). It proposes that the universe and creatures in it is an intelligent product of an intelligent designer.
Both science and religion hold strong views on the existence of life and the universe. It is, however, possible for the conflict between the two to end as concepts and theories of science and religion can be compatible. Scholars do not necessarily need to choose one over the other, but rather appreciate both views as each one complements and enriches the other in a number of ways.
