Searching for the Origin of Life

Our origin and destination was never such a baffling question. The
answer was simple, God. However it seems as though the evolution of
thought has complicated the topic, to the point where the previous
simple answer was almost left behind. Religion has science to blame
for its loss of complete power of the people. Perhaps this is why the
religious society is so unwilling to find a happy median. Although
that is completely understandable, science did embarrassingly
undermine their entire belief system, or did it? A growing number of
people from each belief system are beginning to understand that
science and religion depend upon each other to give the best answer
available to the questions where did I come from, where am I going?

Scientists believe that the universe was created 15 billion years ago,
where as the chapter Genesis in the bible indicates the world is less
than 10,000 years old. Genesis says the first life form was created
10,000 years ago when god created us out of dirt and when the earth
was formed, scientists believe the first life form was 3.5 billion
years ago and that humans evolved from apes. The list of conflicts is
almost as long as the Genesis chapter itself. The scientific evidence
is much more convincing to an educated member of society than the
bible. Scientists believe that the universe was created when a super
dense particle exploded spreading matter and creating what we now know
as the universe. This explosion consisted of matter and antimatter
rushing away in different directions. Against usual scientific law the
explosion consisted of more matter than antimatter, of about one part
per billion. ( This is where
religion can be used to fill the gaps of science. The explosion was so
exact that if it were to happen any other way the universe would not
exist as we know it, if the atoms hadn’t arranged the way they did to
form other particles then we wouldn’t be asking ourselves this
question. Many scientists have found their selves asking if it
happened all by chance or was there a designer. "These findings, now
available, make the idea that God created the universe a more
respectable hypothesis today than at any time in the last 100 years."
Frederick Burnham.

To begin to form the important relationship between science and
religion, each must be defined. The definition of science is easily
and predominantly agreed upon, that is, it is gaining knowledge of the
laws which govern our universe, and it relies heavily on logic.
Religion on the other hand presents something much more difficult to
define, the dispute lies within organized religion rather than
personal faith or belief in a supernatural being. For it is not so
much someone who has faith or belief in a God than it is organized...
