The idea of creation is one of the most controversial issues we have today. Your age, background, religion, and beliefs are the main characters that effect what you believe created the world. Science believes several theories on the creation but the most accepted is the Big Bang Theory. Religion has their own views on creation, Christians believe that God created the world, Islamic believe that Allah created man but in steps, and Mayans believe that the Heart of Sky created man. I plan on discussing each view in detail and then you the reader may make your decision on what you feel are true.
The Big Bang Theory is the scientific theory to explain the beginning of the world and of…show more content…
On the fifth day he creates birds and water creatures, and on the sixth day land creatures are formed. The bible gives a step by step description of each day and how everything is created. There are many theories that go along with the bible. There is the fact that we do not know how long a day is according to the bible. Our days are 24 hours, but in the bible it refers to light and darkness. In some parts of the world they have six months of light and six months of darkness. It is hard to say exactly how long it took God to create the universe. Another point to look at is to combine the science and religion theories. God could have created the Big Bang in order to make the universe. Most scientists agree that the creation was some sort of supernatural event and therefore have a hard time saying that God or a higher being didn’t have anything to do with the creation. Leon Lederman is a physicist who wrote The God Particle and his first paragraph makes very good points, “In the very beginning, there was a void, a curious form of vacuum, a nothingness containing no space, no time, no matter, no light, no sound.

Relationship between Science and Religion
Religion has been guiding the society for thousands of years. People have been worshipping their “God and Goddesses with all devotion. People leave all their worries and anxieties and believe that God will solve all their problems and bless them.
Science taught human-beings to examine things scientifically. Science influenced people’s minds and ideas to a great extent.
There is close relationship between science and religion. Religion teaches us the principle of morality and science should always be guided by this principle of morality. Some people devote their lives to the study of this science and become great prophets. The scientific power becomes more and more effective and benevolent only when it is guided by religion and morality. Our atom bombs, hydrogen bombs are examples to show how the scientific power has been misused because of the lack of religion and morality.
Belief in God does not mean disbelief in science. One may believe in both and the time has come when the scientists have realized that religion begins where science ends. Sometimes the scientist is not able to fully comprehend the mystery of the universe and at that time he believes that there is some invisible power.
The scientific ideas should never persuade the people that there is no God and no religion because even the great scientists of the world have declared that there is some invisible power that governs the universe and they have said this in right earnest. We feel the presence of God and his invisible hand everywhere.
There is need for harmony between Science and Religion. Therefore it is now quite evident that science and religion should work together for the well-being of the humanity. The scientist with his belief in God and the principles of morality can achieve many things for the betterment of humanity.
