Fandango Provocative Question- Evolution

Fandango is the host of Fandango Provocative Question


Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question.

Do you believe that modern human beings, Homo sapiens, evolved between 150,000 to 200,000 years ago from earlier species? Or do you believe that God created humans in their present form within the past 10,000 years? Or, if you believe something else, what is it?


Before I share my thoughts, let me make it clear that I do have a college degree and I am not a religious extremist.

I believe that humans were created as humans, 150000- 200000 years ago by God. The theory of evolution does not satisfy me as it leaves many questions unanswered.

This theory states that we all, all the living creatures evolved from a primordial soup of organic ingredients. It belies a creator. But there has to be a Creator Who created originally. Nothing cannot beget something. That’s why I believe God created everything. The way other organisms came into being could very well be through evolution, though I cannot be 100% sure.

There is a lot of evidence in support of and against this theory and it is the prerogative of an independent thinker to choose what they believe.

Interesting question, truly provocative!

  1. My dear, seeing and loving myself as a human being is the ultimate thing. I believe God created me. However, those who believe in the evolution from apes are not wrong. Whichever way, we live…

  2. “But there has to be a Creator Who created originally. Nothing cannot beget something.”

    How do you know that something cannot be created from nothing? No one knows that for sure. Well, that’s not true. Humans created their gods from nothing in order to explain the unexplainable and to try to find an answer to the unanswerable. But, hey, whatever gets you through the day.

    1. It is incomplete as there are lot of loopholes in this theory. But frankly, I am not concerned how we were created but Who created us. And what are the commands we need to follow.

  3. One of the first things you learn in a physic class is the rule of cause and effect.

    There are three questions that pinpoint the fundamental issue – did the universe have a beginning? Everything we have learnt through science says yes. Did that beginning have a cause? Science is built on the foundation of cause and effect – so scientists would say yes? So the natural question is – was it someone or something that caused the universe to begin? From a physics point of view, the level of order, mathematical law, organisation, engineering etc discernible in the known universe speak great intelligence.

    There are many failings in many religions, many questionable doctrines, many examples of religious hypocrisy, religious leaders loving money and power more than the people they are supposed to serve, many other concerning behaviours which have knocked the confidence of many people. But the belief that someone – God – is behind our existence has more scientific basis and evidence than the theory of evolution.

    1. I loved how you’ve analyzed this question logically and came to the right conclusion. I feel that those who deny the existence of the Supreme Creator are befooling themselves. The creation of something out of nothing by itself doesn’t hold any ring of truth to it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts my dear


      1. We have toured lots of museums with exhibits of artifacts from ancient Egypt. Several of the guides have shown us how the ancient Egyptians incorporated the idea of something from nothing into their worship after observing dung. As they watched dung, they observed dung beetles emerging and thought it was miraculous. This lead to the worship of dung beetles – Khepri becoming
        a famous feature of Egyptian symbols.
