In the article, The Origin of Old-Earth Geology and its Ramifications for Life in the 21st Century by Dr. Mortenson had a rounded argument for the reasons as to why people in today's day in age believe like they do. The relationship between science and Christianity has been a hot topic ever since the early 19th century. A high percentage of scientists and other ordinary people believe that evolution is the perfect solution as to how we got here and how the Earth came about. It is because of many individuals that these people believe the way they do, many do not even give Christianity a chance. And because of their non-religious background, that is why they think evolution was the way we got here. Evolutionists do not look at the cold hard facts that are "'screaming' confirmation of the biblical record" (Mortenson, 2003).
I believe that Dr. Terry Mortenson does a fine job of discussing the different theories of history, the four scriptural geologists, the truth about the 19th Century debate that we have wondered about, and the impact it has had on today's culture. What Dr. Mortenson is trying to get across in this article is that what has happened in the past leaves ramifications in today's society. He starts out by introducing all of the major scientists that contributed to how we see today's science. He spoke of the many different men how had no religious background that added their belief to evolution and how people came from a blob, or single celled organism. He also spoke about how in today's culture; more scientists are considering Creation because they see that evolution is a "'theory in crisis'" (Mortenson, 2003).
