(Genesis 1:1 KJV) In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.In this verse is the statement that separates those who have faith in evolution and those who believe in creation. Some people think the difference is in the method used. People are not fighting over the predicate, they are fighting over the subject of the sentence.
The issue here is not creation or evolution. The issue is God or chance. Both are the object of faith. No Bible believer would say that they can prove creation scientifically. It is an object of faith. What is not understood is that science is in the same position in spite of talking as if evolution is an established scientific fact.
Scientifically speaking evolution will always be a theory, it can never be a fact. This will be true until someone invents a time machine. You see for something to be accepted as a scientific fact three things are necessary: 1) It must be observable. 2) It must be measurable. 3) It must be repeatable. It seems rather obvious that none of these apply.
The real argument is over who, not how. There are those who accept what Genesis 1:1 says and believe that God did it. There are those who reject God and believe that it happened by chance. For them there was no Who.
So here is where the division starts. It is appropriate that it is at the beginning.
