My Take On “The Great Debate” Last Night.


I didn’t watch the debate regarding creation vs. evolution. In my mind there is room for religion and science to coexist. Many great people of faith have been inventors and scientists. Science has its place in the world too. What happened in this debate was something that saddened me a little.

I went to a Christian college that taught the sciences straight forward without any sort of theological slant and religion courses from a perspective of informing students of the importance of the faith. I was taught to think for myself and form my own opinion.

My formative years were spent going to church to learn about my faith and going to school to learn about the lessons math, science, literature, history and the like. We are better people if we are well rounded that way, at least I think so.

Right now people are unemployed, homeless, hopeless and on the brink. As a human family perhaps we should come together to resolve the serious issues of the day. My faith informs me to love people and to share with them the love of my creator.
