Creationism vs. Evolution

This debate goes on and on for many, many years. You may remember from school the famous questions Albert Camus’s been asking himself: Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?

During the 1800s and up until the mid-1900s, Creationism was widely accepted and was considered a foundational truth. Then Darwin came with his Theory of Evolution and set the foundations of a new debate. I wonder how long this one will last, considering that the “World is Flat” vs “the World is Round” one had followers even in the 20th century (yes 20th century - In 1956, Samuel Shenton set up the Flat Earth Society with the primary aim to reach children and convince them the Earth was Flat before they were convinced about a spherical earth – crazy, if you’d ask me- and he really got famous for a time, but the Moon landing was not very good on his career).

Watch this Family guy video, it’s hilarious.
