Yesterday in class we discussed Darwinism and religion. It came up that many people believe in Darwin's theory of Natural Selection, but can also believe that a creator is the reason for all life. Evolution there after does play apart on the organisms that were placed on this planet. However, many people that follow Christianity in this area of the country do not agree. I believe that is due to a conservative way of thinking and the lack of growing up with an understanding of biology. It makes since, why would you believe in Natural Selection if you didn't hear about it from people that learned from in your younger years. It's always hard to believe something when you grew up thinking one way, but it doesn't necessarily have to be black and white. You can believe in God and still believe that living thing evolve and adapt to their environment over time.
Look at the polar bear! Once a brown bear that had a genetic change in DNA which caused the bears fur to turn white. Living in icey conditions this bear is now more fit to hunt in the area as opposed the brown bear with can be easily spotted by prey.
