It Took A Long Time To Become You
The debate between the creationism and the Evolutionists has always made me chuckle out loud. People get hugely fired up about this, and to be honest I have never really understood why. Like Carrie Ann, I have a foot in both the creationism and the evolutionary ring. I believe that the earth, and all of us were created by Deity and that we were created in His image. I also believe that human beings have significantly evolved since our initial creation. I think that is obvious that we are groaning, that we are pushing forward. Looking at the art people are creating, the books people are writing, and you can see that we're changing, we're evolving.
I know, in the 26 years I have been here on this planet I have evolved physically, emotionally and spiritually. I have grown and changed, I have had my limits pushed, and learned that it is really all about survival of the fittest. You have to be able to handle the things life throws at you, you have to survive the experience you're having. You often have to adapt to a situation or a circumstance. When creationism scream about evolution not being of God I let out a little laugh. It's so obvious that the Lord intended us to change, demanded it of us even. We were commanded to become more like Him, to strive for perfection. We can't do those things if we stagnant. There must be change. There must be adaptation. We must evolve.
For me, I believe that God created each of us, and all the things on this earth. I also believe we as a species we have evolved and changed profoundly from our beginnings. I believe that is the way it was intended to be. So, when I hear people carrying on about how only their way is the right way, I give them a smile, chuckle to myself and wish them luck with their own evolution.
