Creationism Vs Evolution - 1,016 words
Evolution is not only improbable but clearly impossible. Extensive evidence against evolution is uncovered with every major scientific discovery. Every evolutionist "fact" can easily be rebuked by creationists. Twelve supposed hominoids have been discovered and presented as supporting evidence to evolution. While in all actuality nine of the twelve supposed hominids are actually extinct species of ape. While the remaining three are completely developed humans. Neanderthals were once considered pre-humans by evolutionists but recent studies have shown that the Neanderthals are completely developed humans (Homo sapiens) suffering from bone diseases caused by vitamin D deficiency. Many textbook ...

History - 449 words
During the 1920s there was much tension between the traditionalists and the modernists. The best example of this conflict was that of the Scopes trial and the changes in the lifestyles and values of the American youth. In both cases the traditionalists and the The first example of the tension between the traditionalists and the modernists was the unfriendly fire from the fundamentalists on the new science and progressive education in the 1920s. These old time religionists believed that the teaching of Darwinian evolution was destroying faith in God and the Bible. They believed this new teaching was contributing to the moral breakdown of youth in the jazz age. They tried to create laws to pro ...

Evolution Vs Creation - 774 words
Teaching evolution in schools is a highly debated issue between science and religion. In Kansas, the State Board of Education has decided to de-emphasize evolution in favor of the creation story. Throughout the science community, it is believed that evolution should be taught in school because of all the scientific evidence that points to the validity of evolution and because it is a cornerstone of biology. Most all other states emphasize the importance of evolution, as do most colleges. In the religious community, evolution is considered to be totally false, because it contradicts the Bibles creation story. Both sides must be taken into account when deciding upon whether or not evolution sh ...

Flannery Oconnor And The Blessed - 1,065 words
The society of the South is such that there has always been a large gap in the classes of wealth, position, education, and general welfare. The gap began with slavery, and the pattern has endured for a long time, despite attempts to create opportunities for the lower classes. The majority of the population has little money, poor education, and lives in squalor while a select few are privileged enough to have whatever they could ever need or want. Privileged they are indeed, whether they have been blessed with intelligence or property. It is this privilege that many people have taken for granted however, as they do not use this opportunity of what they have been given to help those that are n ...

Creation - 1,088 words
Mrs. Brew 13 May 1996 Intelligent Design of the Universe The search for knowledge about the origin of humanity is as old as its inhabitants. Since the early 1800's mankind has narrowed the debate to creation by a Supreme Being and the theory of evolution. Ever since then, science has been at odds against religion. Now it appears that science is returning to religion. Scientists are finding proof that the universe was created by a Supreme Being. The word evolution refers to the change of something over a period of time(Webster's 634). In biology, the theory of evolution is "the complex of processes by which living organisms originated on earth and have been diversified and modified through su ...

The Controversy Continues : Charles Darwin - 1,281 words
... ions to the Theory of Natural Selection discuss problems that people may have about evolution. Many people have argued that although Darwins theory includes many transitional species, none of these have been found on fossil record. Darwins views on this issue are that the geological records are imperfect, as fossilization can only occur under certain conditions, often rare, in nature. For instance, no fossils of monkeys living in tropical rain forests have ever been found, for it is too wet in such climates for bones to be preserved. Darwin also talks about the geographical distribution of animals or traits around the world. In the world of animals, evolution is affected heavily by barri ...

No Compromise - 1,729 words
Prayer before a game, under God as a part of the pledge, the Ten Commandments on school walls: are all of these really an endorsement of religion or are they merely a nations heritage; traditions passed down year after year? This point could and probably will be argued forever. But there is one thing that must be settled once and for all. If rights are to be removed from moral, conservative students in the public school system, then the precedent set by the removal of these rights must extend all the way across the board, even into government offices. If any one persons rights are to be revoked, the revocation must be consistent, from public school student, all the way up to President of the ...

Scopes Monkey Trial - 1,734 words
The Scopes Monkey Trial is considered to be one of the biggest trials in the history of the United States. The trial took place in the 1920s, in a small town of Tennessee called Dayton. The trial was of a twenty four year old science teacher and a football coach named John T. Scopes. He was accused of opposing the Butler Act, which forbade the teaching of evolution in public schools and universities (Encarta). The trial was famous worldwide as it divided the United States in the opinion of Darwinism. The trial was not only about a man who was accused of breaking a Tennessee law, it was a fight between modernists and traditionalists who were struggling to prove their point about evolution. Ev ...

Academic Arguments Of Evolutionism Vs. Creationism - 1,071 words
... be called a belief. Though it is not a belief in a super-natural power. It is based on fact (in what has been proven through the scientific method) and in what has been hypothesized, building on knowledge and the influence of other evolutionists. However, it still remains a belief: a belief that using the scientific method is the correct way to explain our origins. Increasingly, even scientists are questioning whether the scientific method is capable of answering many of the most profound questions. Evolution is an acceptance of many different peoples ideas: It is ever changing and developing depending on new knowledge. No man just said THIS IS HOW IT WAS, THIS IS HOW IT IS, AND THIS IS ...

Censorship In Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 - 1,092 words
In Ray Bradbury's book Fahrenheit 451,showed a dystopian society in which owning books is illegal. The general nature of the society is based on destruction and emotionless, broken families. Bradbury conveys this world in a way that one cannot help but to read it as disturbing fiction. However, upon looking at our own world, we see our limits and standards for acceptable reading material close tighter around the neck of literary freedom. People are advised to not read books that have correct historical language or biography's with intense scenes of passion or rape. The world begs for violence through its media but scorns reading as if the message were there to ridicule and destroy us. Is Mr. ...

Scopes Monkey Trial Of 1925 - 1,930 words
The 1920s has been characterized by a period of new thinking and a dispute between traditional beliefs and modernization (Boudia). The era became known as a time of contradiction in peoples thoughts and ideas. After World War 1, fundamentalism soared in popularity, particularly in the South and Midwest. Fundamentalists believed in a literal interpretation of the Bible, and saw the Darwin theory of evolution as a threat to Christianity (The Scope Monkey Trial-July 10, 1925). So opposed to evolution, these fundamentalists set out to eliminate it from society, beginning with the education system in Dayton, Tennessee. By 1925, many states throughout the South had put into effect laws to disallow ...

Tennessee V. Scopes Trial: Fact Or Fiction - 869 words
In 1925 the court case of Tennessee v. Scopes received national attention, and gained legendary status. This case was the direct result over the nationwide debate on weather Charles Darwins Theory of Evolution, or the bibles account of Genesis, should be taught in public schools, and also effected what was being taught in the public school system. In the years leading up to 1960, and the release of the Hollywood film Inherit the Wind the facts of the scopes trial became very distorted from the real life event. Before comparing the differences in the Scopes trial and the movie Inherit the Wind, its important to examine what factors helped lead up to the 1925 court case. The first factor that ...

Should Creationism Be Tuaght In Schools - 513 words
Despite the scientific and legal support for teaching evolution and against teaching creation science, an uninformed public can still be swayed by what seem to be "scientific" and logical arguments. By making "evolution" synonymous with "anti-religious" or disbelief in a creator, creationists have successfully intimidated citizens and public figures into silence or reluctance to take a stand on this issue. The Supreme Court of the United States says that legislature, cannot require that teaching and learning must be tailored to the principles or prohibitions of any particular religious sect or doctrine. (Epperson v. Arkansas, 1968) Pro-Creationists turn this around by arguing that equal time ...

Ethical Dispute Regarding Creationism Versus Evolution - 1,270 words
Creationism is the theory that man, the earth, and the rest of the universe was originally created rather than randomly exploding from nothingness into chance existence. We reside on the surface of a small superbly crafted, autonomous self regulating space vehicle. Together with survival, conquest and death we bear witness to beauty, fragrances, love and music. Think about this. Mathematics, philosophy, springtime, depravity, farming, courtship, quasars, and bubble gum; all came from nothingness?, formed by chance......? Of all the generations thus far to inhabit the Earth, we have the least excuse for not recognizing the quiet presence of The Scientific Mathematician who set everything into ...

Inherit The Wind - 345 words
The Theme of Inherit the Wind The theme of Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Lee is the right to think. One example that supports the theme is that Drummond tries to prove Bert Cates is on trial because he uses his right to think. Drummond asks Howard's opinion on morality, so he can establish that "anyone in this courtroom . . . has the right to think" (64). Drummond tells the jury that Cates didn't commit a crime by teaching evolution and shouldn't be penalized because "he chooses to speak what he thinks" (64). Drummond wants the to convince the jury that Cates is going to be deprived of his right to think if he is found guilty. Another example that supports the theme is that ...
