The single point where the debate on Evolution versus Creation agrees is that the universe did not exist eternally. There lies the single point of agreement after which followers and perpetuators of the debate veer off in complete opposite direction that is close to opposing also. The followers of the Creation theory believe there is a designer behind this entire process while the Evolutionary theory is declares that the present is a product of chance, time, and evolution due to living conditions (this can even be seen in our pets becoming domesticated according to my friend who works at vet jobs London).
Both sides have the contention that the other needs to prove their postulates and thereafter findings. Evolutionists voice their demand saying that as the Creationists state that there is a creator there should be some means to visualize this creator. It is this physical proof that they seek, off the Creationists. The Creationists on the other hand argue that while the evolution speaks of the human mind and such other factors as the main source for the process of formation, these too cannot be visualized in a pure physical form. Creationist’s state that what the Evolutionists measure or display is but certain parameters that have been assumed to indicate the presence of the mind.
Going the middle path, it is going to be extremely difficult for any one side to table such proof as the other demands. While science had not made much breakthrough amongst the human mass the theory of Creation held much value and this could be attributed to blind belief. Not that the logic that is stated by the propagators of the creation theory lacks or lags in any sense.
With the ingress of science and its scientific theories and experiments, the chink on the theory of Creation showed up while making way for the theory of Evolution. Though seeming to be more practical this theory yet has its own set of limitations. These limitations keep the theory of Creation alive and strong as yet. There are a lot many aspects in real present life that cannot be explained by the believers of Evolution and their scientific gadgets.
Given this scenario and the fact that this debate would continue unabated there is need to continue this debate only for cases where both sides would gain some knowledge that till now had eluded them rather than being just a means for criticism of the others beliefs.
