Who created man?
From time immemorial, mankind has been looking for the origins of its origin on Earth. The question of who created man, still does not give rest to scientists and inhabitants.
There is a theory of Darwin, which is consideredthe most logical of the existing ones. According to her, man emerged in the process of evolution. Our ancestors came from primates, gradually changing under the influence of external factors and natural selection.
However, this theory can not be considered absolutelyproven, because it has many nuances and unsolved mysteries that allow opponents of the evolutionary theory to question it. It is known that the deeper the science investigates the origin of man according to the Darwinian theory, the more it comes to a dead end. For example, until now, no intermediate link has been found in the chain of human evolution.
In addition to the Darwinian theory of the origin of people, there are other, non-evolutionary theories.
The theory of creationism arose long beforeevolutionary theory. It assumes the emergence of man through the creator-creator. Perhaps, in every nation, in every religion, there is a variant of creating a human being by a higher being.
For example, in Christianity, God created people on the seventh, the last day of the creation of the world, in the image and likeness of his own. The man Adam was made from the dust of the earth, and Eve from the rib of Adam.
In ancient Egypt believed that the first man molded from clay, the potter Khnum.
In Mesopotamia, there is a myth that the gods who killed their predecessors made people of their flesh. There are a lot of similar stories in the world.
The divine theory of the origin of man is alive, as long as religion exists. Therefore, even in the 21st century, it finds its supporters among believers.
Theory of intelligent design
According to this theory, people have occurred thanks to the activities of other, more developed civilizations. There are various versions of the theory:
- People are the descendants of aliens who landed on Earth long ago.
- A man is a hybrid of an alien with a primacy, the result of scientific experiments.
- Man is a product of genetic engineering, obtained in a homuncular way.
- The extraterrestrial supermind controls the evolutionary development of mankind and its life on Earth according to a certain program.
In this theory, there is also an opinion thathumanity could be the unsuccessful result of some alien experiment, and therefore is doomed to self-destruct by means of wars, environmental disasters and cataclysms.
This theory, though reinforced by conjectures that in space can exist other civilizations, but still remains a pseudo-scientific.
Adherents of this theory are trying to find scientificexplanations to the biblical version of the creation of the world and man. In particular, when conducting scientific research, they seek confirmation that the "reasonable person" existed simultaneously with the Neanderthal man, and was not his descendant.
Thus, scientific creationism casts doubt on the evolutionary theory of human origin. This approach forces us to take a fresh look at the history of the creation of the world by God.
Surprisingly, modern science can not agree on a common opinion on the origin of man. It seems that the oldest mystery that interests mankind will remain unsolved for a long time.
