This Post began as "Evolution made Simple"
In my retirement I have been thinking of a simple way to communicate evolution to fellow Christians who have little interest in science.
The Natural Sciences are the study of God’s laws in nature.
- The laws of Physics can explain how the universe was created about 14 billion year ago.
- The laws of Chemistry can probably explain how the first building blocks of life were created about 4 billion years ago
- The laws of Biology can explain how all forms of life were created, the first humans about 300,000 years ago
But in writing this Post and replying to the first Reply’s I realized that my real stumbling block is that the Natural Sciences don’t explain all of Human Evolution. They don’t explain why, that in the last 12,000 years the population of humans has grown exponentially from ~1 Million to 7.8 Billion.
Are there explanations in the Social Sciences – Economics, Psychology and Sociology? I have not found much.
Undoubtably the explanations are to be found in the History (Evolution) of Language and the History (Evolution) of Religion but the theories that I have read are all quite speculative.
Any suggested readings would be welcome!
