The Creationism and Evolution debate is one that does not seem to be evolving. According to this article by Katha Pollitt, “46 percent of Americans with sixteen long years of education under their belt believe the story of Adam and Eve is literally true.” The other side is about the same with a few percents left over in the “I don’t care pile”
Pollitt posits that this is a failure in the education system to truly show that creationism is crazy and if schools did a better job teaching science then less people would believe in creationism. That logic seems to follow, however it does not take into account the other, equally as legitimate side that creationism might be true.
This is a tough debate because on both sides there is a lot of what I’ll call, “unknowns.” I know, insightful and mind-blowing word choice. A lot of debate exists sounds like this,
“Creationism is crazy. A person or God created it all out of nothing? No way. Science has rules and that does not conform.”
“Evolution is anti-biblical and does not take into account an all-knowing and loving God who takes care of his creation. Adam and Eve are real. Anyone who does not believe is a heretic.”
I’m probably being unfair. To both sides. So, that’s bipartisan, right?
