Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Creation, Evolution and the future of the human race

Like many of you, I have struggled with the question of ‘where did we come from?’ How did this world or this universe come to be?

Of course, scientists and religious adherents have long engaged in this debate. As I was on the plane on my way back to Ghana today, I got thinking about us human beings. From something so tiny and almost invisible like a fertilized egg, we can evolve into a complete human being with eyes, head, bones, heart, blood, legs and arms. Now that is amazing when you think about it.

Embedded in this fertilized egg is the scientific formula for the evolution of the bones, legs, heart, etc. From something so tiny, something quite big like a human being has resulted.

Then it occurred to me that there is, therefore, no logical reason why the universe as we see it could not also have resulted from something very tiny at the beginning with an embedded formula that makes it keep expanding. This is, of course, consistent with the Big Bang theory. Like the human being, the universe has developed its own heart, legs, eyes, blood, tears, etc.

But the ultimate question is who created these formulae for the human being and the universe? It had to have started from somewhere. Some of what Darwin may have observed as evolution may actually be the physical manifestation of an embedded formula in nature. What scientists have also explained as the Big Bang may similarly be a physical manifestation of an embedded formula contained in a tiny particle.

But someone must have embedded or created these formulae. Our frontiers of knowledge as humans are expanding just like the frontiers of our universe, so I believe that our understanding of the universe will dramatically improve in the next 50 years.

I think that the creation versus evolution debate is a false one. There is no reason why evolution cannot result from an initial creation. Indeed, in the logical sequence, creation must come before evolution.

God is indeed an Amazing God.

Now let’s return to dealing with the everyday problems facing Ghanaians.
