ABSTRACT
The article discusses concepts of creation and evolution with regard to how the world came into existence through a comparison of texts from the Bible and through Darwin's theory of evolution. A debate was undertaken wherein in a creationist point of view, the universe is within the authoritative control of a divine being. It notes that the biblical text in Genesis was known to point the possible ages of the planet that was based of how the Old Testament texts were used to structure its own literary universe. It was justified that the biblical use of numbers should not be used in a literal sense. However, in an evolutionary perspective, human beings were regarded as part of the gradual development of life based on the evolutionary thesis of Charles Darwin.
