The debate as to whether god created us humans, or whether we evolved from another species, is an engrossing one, and is an unresolved question till now. Let us check

Evolution or Creationism?

I have a keen interest in what represents how the human beings came into being in their present form- The Theory of evolution vs Theory of Creationism.
The theory of creationism i.e the theory that says that God created every living being is favored by following:

1)Evolutionists say that Man evolved from Apes who in turn evolved from some Amphibian creatures, who in turn were evolving from Reptiles or Fish and so on. Yet, who created the most basic Life Form? It must have been God.

2)Who decided when Big Bang has to happen or why Earth only had to be habitable long enough? True, Mars also has some signs of Life Supporting conditions, but no Life has been detected as such.

3)Why Man only developed brains big enough to control so much of Earth? Why Not Chimpanzee, Gorillas etc?

True, these points and more seem to be valid. However, personally I favor the evolution theory :

1)Studies have shown a number of similarity between Humans spread across continents, their genetic make suggests that we all evolved from a common ancestor who descended from Apes.

2)Evolutionary traits develop over Thousands of Years. Our evolution from Ape like creatures to Man involved shedding of some organs ,structural changes in our Arms, legs, size and shape of brain and muscles. Similar evolutionary patterns have been studied in Horses - who developed from Tiny creatures to the big ones we see today. Patterns have also been observed in fishes, as well as elephants.

3)There had been some Human as well as other Animal species who got eliminated or become extinct as they could not survive factors beyond their control - such as sudden climate changes , massive Floods or Droughts or hostilities from enemies.

4)Studies have also proved that evolution also produces new species which have common traits from their parents as well as individual traits of their own. An example is the Domestic Fowl (or Hen and Rooster) of today's times which evolved from One Red and Grey Jungle Fowl . The Domestic Fowl has characteristics from both its ancestors as well as its own independent characteristics.

To summarize, I do not oppose anyone who is opposed to the Theory of Evolution. However, I believe that the Theory of Evolution has a stronger validity vis-a-vis the theory that God created everything.

This is a matter of believing or not believing. I believe in Allah and I would not go anything beyond.
