The Creation/Evolution Controversy

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge." - Psalms 19:1, 2.

This page assumes that you - the reader - are sort of wondering. Scientific Creationism. The books and videos seem so plausible. They score good points against evolution. They say that evolution is "in crisis".

But evolution is asserted pretty strongly in all the science books. And other areas of science keep coming up with useful stuff. How did science manage to screw up so badly over evolution? Could scientists really just cling to it out of pride, or atheism?

I've debated this for years. So, I am a pretty good person to lead you to further information from both sides. And the first thing to say is, there are more than two sides. It can be illuminating to see how different people approach the same questions.

Not everyone means the same thing when they say "evolution". So, for most people, it's important to start by skimming some definitions. And from there, it is possible to discuss the big list of specific issues.

Thanks to all the people whose ideas or words I've used.
