ABSTRACT
The article explores evolution versus creation debate by dismantling the premises of scientific atheism as expounded by scholars such as Richard Dawkins. Scientific atheists think evolution eliminates the need for a Creator, and that evolution has no goal or purpose. Genetic Algorithms (GA) are discussed, and the author concludes science can explain finite physical processes, but ultimate origins are the purview of religion.
