“The ideas of creation and evolution involve discerning realities from pseudo representations. The universe, life, and humanity were either designed with purpose and meaning, or they were not. The entire cosmos either explains itself, or it does not. Creation either happened, or it’s a figment of someone’s imagination.
What a person believes about his origin colors every other part of his view on life. Strictly natural outcomes reflect no care, no reason, no hope. Yet these characteristics belong inherently to the concept of biblical creation. Because individuals behave as they believe, perspectives on evolution and creation embody a critical determinant for how people choose to live and plan their lives.”
— Dr. Hugh Ross, astronomer, founder/prez of Reasons to Believe, author of More Than a Theory (among others)
Given the general topics covered on this blog, it is only natural that the creation/evolution/design debates and related subjects are the focus of some of my writing. Besides, it has been an interest of mine for many years, and I love reading and listening to podcasts about these issues. So, I figured, as long as I’m creating new pages to list links of one focus or another, it makes sense to have one about this stuff. Am I right, or am I right? (No need to answer. The blog’s title says it all.)
