Creation or Evolution?

In the argument over the origin of the universe, Creationists hold to the biblical view that it was created in six days and that on the seventh day God rested. We must note that the Almighty who is eternal is not constrained by time as are human beings, this is clarified by (Psalm 90-4) "For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night," and is mentioned in other places in scripture. So in effect a day recorded in the bible may have been a twenty-four hour period or in some instances cover many millennia. Evolutionists believe that all things evolved to their current state over a period of millions of years, both camps having tunnel vision squabble endlessly over it, only willing to accept their own skewed theory. The stumbling block for many is couched in the idea that somehow humankind morphed from a single celled life form that began in a primordial slime pit which is repugnant to Creationists. Another idea encompasses the idea that man evolved from an ape-like being, which possibly makes more sense if at some point God selected a perfect specimen and breathed a human soul into him.
In the final analysis one might concede that man’s ego has entered into the debate, therefore we can assume that the creation of all things has likely been an evolutionary process in the hands of the Creator.
(1 Corinthians 3:18-20) Let no one deceive himself. If any one among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness,” and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”
