In the science vs religion argument, the question of evolution sometimes arises.
The 2009 film Creation communicates accurately that Darwin's faith was shaken not by his theory of evolution, but by the death of his daughter.
Darwin's theory of evolution provoked much discussion and opposition in the church. But at the time of his death, he was given a full Christian ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
At a memorial service following Darwin's funeral, the Bishop of Carlisle, Harvey Goodwin said the following:
The creationist's view that evolution did not take place and that God
literally created the world in seven days, is much quoted in the science vs religion argument. But this is not a belief held by the
majority of Christians.
I remember finding out that a teacher at the catholic religious secondary school I attended didn't believe in evolution. We - the students - were amazed.
And in an evangelical Christian publication I was interested
to note that the seven days of creation in the Bible were seen as
spanning "as much time as good science allows for".
I am certainly not suggesting that the Bible is a scientific document. I do however find it fascinating that a book written thousands of years ago could be accurate on these points.
I have been told that the Koran is similarly accurate on the development of the foetus, but I cannot confirm that at this time.
