Evolution vs Creationism

Post  Catholic_Truth on Sun Dec 26, 2010 11:08 am

Catholic Tradition and Holy Scripture has always taught that Adam was created directly from the dust of the Earth.

If you believe in theistic evolution, then you would either have to claim there was no Adam and Eve, or you would have to claim that Adam's parents were apes.

So, which explanation seems "Catholic" and which seems "ridiculous"?

I kind of go midway with the science. I think Intelligent Design is better than fundamental "creationism." The age of the earth by using the Bible is a protestant invention.

Intelligent Design proponent, Dr. Stephen Meyer, does a very good job in debating evolutionists. You can see several of his debates on Youtube.

Actually Intelligent Design theory does entertain the possibility of a six day period inwhich an "intelligent designer" could have "designed" everything. Intelligent Design theory entertains both the old Earth and young Earth proposals.

Believing in a literal six day creation event is not for protestants alone, but was the belief by the majoriy of Catholics throughout the Church's 2000 year history. I believe God created everything in six literal days and I believe the Earth is only a few thousand years old.

Do you know of any good books/resources on this issue?

Vin Lewis has a nice little audio (I think it is only 3 bucks) which totally DESTROYS evolutionism.

Hey nice site thanks Jim!

That was pretty interesting talk too. It does seem that the Protestants helped in the investigation of Evolution. I believe that Modernism in the Church, and the Nazi's, abortion, atheism, and communism derive all their strength from Darwinism.

Catholics have not contributed enough. Although Behe is catholic as I understand it.

On the other hand, Geocentrism, I think is similar but on the other extreme. I think it is a useless subject that just disqualifies Catholics that hold it, like "Flat Erathers."

Have you ever seen this debate on evolution between William B. Provine and Phillip E. Johnson at Stanford University, April 30, 1994 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM-H6NxdCd4&feature=&p=2DF69BA9017DDC77&index=0&playnext=1

Duckbill, I haven't seen that debate. I especially love listening to theological debates.

This isn't theological but it is a pretty good debate. Provine denies free will.

Johnson wrote one of the first big book sellers attacking Darwinism: "Darwin on Trial". He is a professor of law so he put Darwinism on trial to see if his evidence works. He wasn't interested in replacing the theory or offering any alternative just questioning the "facts" of evolution. Very good book for an overview of Darwinism.

If one believes in theistic evolution, then one would either have to claim there was no Adam and Eve, or would have to claim that Adam's parents were apes. Therefore you would have to believe a human being with a "soul" was born from a "Beast". This is a totally pagan, diabolical and demonic belief. Plus, if you claim the "soul" didn't enter at conception, but instead after that human being was born from that "Beast", then you contradict the teaching of the Church that life begins at conception and that this is when the soul is created along with the body. If you deny this, then you are making the case for pro-abortionists who claim the soul does NOT enter the person at the moment of conception.

So, which explanation seems "Catholic" and which seems "looney"? jocolor

I think you should listen to Johnson's point that you are also making, which is well stated by him around 5 minutes into the first video.
