Season: 6 Episode: 081
Did God use evolution to create the world? Do Christians deny science when they hold to biblical creationism? These are just a few of the questions Shanda and Mark tackle in this episode. We also discuss why atheists are so afraid of creationism being taught side by side and why science confirms God. Mark is with So You Want The Truth About and he is ready to tackle scientific questions.
“We believe in natural selection. Natures events will choose for specific genes.”
“If atheists are convinced the evidence points to evolution, why are they threatened by the creation narrative?”
“Society wants to remove God any and every way they can.”

I’m very interested in this topic today and I am very excited to talk to you about it, Mark. We are talking about creationism and this topic has been around for a long time and has sparked many debates. So let’s take off with the first question here.

I know it may seem obvious, but can you explain what we mean by creationism before we get into the meat of the episode?
The misconception amongst many (Christian and non) is that if you believe in God you deny science. Why is this a false conclusion?
You just said believing in God does not require denying science. Yet how can you believe in the Bible’s creation account and still say you believe in science?
What are some examples where you think the evidence and science better fits Creationism?
If atheists are so convinced that evolution is the reason we are here and the evidence backs up this claim, why are they so afraid to have creationism taught side by side?
Many modern scientists say faith is unreasonable. But, as you and I know, that is not the definition of faith according to the word of God. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Do you feel it takes faith to believe in evolution?
Some Christians ask if we can believe God used evolution to create the world. How would you answer that?
What are some final thoughts to encourage Christians to understand the debate between creationism and evolution?
