Tag: Creationism vs. Evolution
Surely, by now, many of us are exhausted of hearing and seeing the Creation vs. Evolution debates. But, we need to be in the know, especially for those of us who are Christians. This writer interviewed GC Biology instructor Dr. Eugene Dunkley about his take on this ongoing issue. Dr. Dunkley is one of a few science department instructors who teach COR 302, along with Dr. Darrell Iler and Dr. Daryl Cox.
Written by Suzanne Ford; Media by Kelsey Kuethe. Many people believe that creationism and evolution are about as similar as cats and dogs. There are dog people and there are cat people because the two animals have completely different traits (and dogs are clearly the more fun, loving, and superior pet). Likewise, many people stick to one belief or the other in the creationism versus evolution debate and they staunchly defend it. Here at Greenville College, we can make up our own minds on the subject. We are fortunate to be able to learn about both creationism and evolution when we take COR302. Some students believe that it should not be a required course, and some even say that believing in evolution undermines the fundamentals of our Christian faith. On the opposing side, some students believe that learning about evolution allows us to appreciate our God even more. Many of us might wonder which side is the right side to believe in as a Christian, or we might already be a firm believer in one or the other. Some people may not even care which theory is the right one because they have more important things to do, like tweet and watch Grey’s Anatomy. However, should there even be a debate between the two theories?
