Here is an actual fifth grade science question: Which of the following is true about all living things? A. They all have two parents. B. They are all exact copies of their parents C. They all have young that look like small adults. D. They all come from other living things. A. There are organisms that produce asexually, that is with only one parent; therefore, A is not correct. B. If you simply look at someone\u2019s children then you know that we are not exact copies of our parents; therefore, B is not correct. C. It\u2019s also easy to tell that not all young look like small adults. Some young look very different; therefore, C is not correct. The correct answer is D. All living things come from other living things. This is a scientific fact commonly called biogenesis. Why do I bring this up? Simple. The statement is made in science books and by scientists that all living things come from other living things; however, evolution would state that we originated from something nonliving. There was some energy source or some explosion that was nonliving which resulted in something that was living. Compare that with the Genesis account of creation. It states the same. The earth came from nothing. The stars came from nothing. The land and sea came from nothing. And people came from dirt. This also goes against the scientific fact that \u201call living things come from other living things.\u201d But in creation there is a slight difference. The creation account doesn\u2019t really start with nothing. It starts with something \u2013 something living. God, a living being, spoke the world into place and \u201cformed the man from the dust of the ground\u201d and \u201cmade a woman from the rib He had taken out of the man.\u201d Without disrespect to Almighty God; man, a living thing, came from God, a living thing. As proven by Louis Pasteur, \u201clife today does not exist without being contaminated by existing life.\u201d Scientifically, evolution and creation are both theories. Neither can be duplicated nor observed. Even creation begins with God, who apparently has always been. Both theories take faith \u2013 faith in a God that always existed or faith in a nonliving thing that resulted in living things. To me, creation seems much closer to scientific fact, but it\u2019s up to you where you want to place your faith. For further reading on the Creation account, see Genesis 1-2.
