I noticed there were several letters in The Bee on Feb. 8 ✔trying to debunk Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution, primarily because it contradicts the story of creation in Genesis (which is really two separate stories intertwined).
The creationists believe God created the universe 6,500 years ago. If Genesis is an accurate account of creation, Adam and Eve had two children, Cain and Abel.
Cain killed Abel and was condemned to being a “restless wanderer on the earth” (Genesis 4:12). Then, in Genesis 4:17, it says “Cain lay with his wife and gave birth to Enoch.” Where did his wife come from?
So far in this account of creation, only Adam, Eve, Cain and Abel have been “created”; and Abel’s now dead. Perhaps she was the product of the evolutionary process discovered by Mr. Darwin. Perhaps this is where creationism meets Darwinism.
Science says the universe was created 15 million years ago; creationists say 6,500 years ago. What about the dinosaurs and the remnants of early Indian dwellers in the southwest that are carbon dated back to 10,000 years ago?
I know, I know, Satan put those dinosaur bones in the ground and invented the myth of carbon dating just to deceive us!
