Ultimately, whenever someone brings this topic up, whether Atheist or Christian, it always ends in a torrential flame war where both sides lose sight of the argument, and really just beat a dead horse.
Before you go to the comments and debate to your little hearts content, I have a prompt question for both sides. (You don’t have to comment your answer).
For Christians: Look, I know that the Bible says nothing about Evolution, but think about this for a minute. Which is more important? Proving that Creationism is true and Evolution is false, or sharing the eternal gift Jesus promised to all of humanity. In the end, it’s not gonna matter who was right about how the Earth and Universe started. What will matter is how our friendship with Christ ended up.
P.S. God could’ve used Evolution…..just saying…..
Romans 10:9-13 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”[a] 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
For Atheists: Let’s say there’s this guy. He’s educated, graduated from high school and college, is a fully functioning member of society, has a family of his own, and has a good job. Does it really matter to you or to him that he’s a Creationist or Theistic Evolutionist? I mean think about. Evolution and Creationism only cover a person’s worldview and the jobs associated with them. Other than that, I’m pretty sure I could go my whole life without needing to know either of them. For example: People who have been taught neither.
Anyway, that’s just my take on it, I guess. Thanks for reading 🙂
