Tuesday, September 13, 2016 Unit 2B: God & Science God and Darwin - Three Main “Origins” Events • Origin of the Universe • Origin of the First Living Organisms • Origin of New Species - Three Main Principles of Darwinian Evolution • Chance mutations: All inheritable changes in individuals arise from chance genetic mutations. (some mutations occur by chance, others occur by intelligent design) • Natural selection: All individual changes that survive as group traits are spread by natural selection - “survival of the fittest”. • Common descent:All living organisms derive from common ancestry. • Limitation of the Theory
 Darwin’s theory - Three Main TheisticApproaches to Darwin • Some Main Tenets of Young Earth Creationism
 Young Earth: Age of the universe is based on the Genesis account - i.e., creation occurred in 7 days. 
 Special Creation: All major groups of organisms were specially created, and in the order explained in Genesis 1. 
 Appearance of Age: The universe created with a built-in “appearance of age”. • Falsifiability 
 Atheory/position is falsifiable when it is possible to disprove the theory. It is widely held that falsifiability is central to the scientific method. • Irreducible Complexity 
 According to Intelligent Design theorists, irreducible complexity occurs when multiple components are all needed for a system to work, at all. 
 1 Tuesday, September 13, 2016 • Collins’s Version of Theistic Evolution 
 God created the universe by causing the Big Bang - science tells us how long ago this happened. 
 Somehow, the first life forms arose - possibly by creation, possibly by natural processes. 
 With the first life forms in place, natural evolutionary processes tok over - no supernatural intervention was required. 
 Humans, too, arose form this evolutionary process. 2
