Question of the Day: Creationism

Hawking said that the Laws of Physics didn’t need a creator to create the universe. For others, God creates the matter and just gives it a whirl to see how it turns out. For still others, God guides evolution of varying degrees until the present day, which in my opinion, leaves open the idea that evolution is still ongoing. And and course, others skip evolution, but don’t buy the literal 6-day idea held by Creationists.

So, I guess, at what point does does it really begin to matter to the faithful? For me….

  1. I believe that God created the universe, though not in six 24 hour days as we know them, and I believe in predestined evolution. The life expectancy of males and females in some western countries has almost doubled in the past 100 years and continues to increase. Is this an example of evolution happening now?

  2. Hawking’s view is as much of a faith as that of anyone else. His faith is that things that exist (starts, the big bang, God, ect) can be verified experimentaly. Thus, if it can’t be proven experimentaly, it can’t exist. Though, as we can see through mathematics (just one example) not everything in nature can be proven experimentaly. Hawkin’s faith is on in the power of negative evidence. Ultimately, theology and physics derive from a philisophical prediposition. Neither are more or less objective than the other.
