ORIGINS:
THE STUDY OF THE
EVIDENCES OF THE
EARTH'S BEGINNINGS.
 
No one living was present at the beginning, so other evidences are used to surmise the way that life began.  These evidences would include religious writings and a study of the world as it is today (science).
 
Two main ideas are given about origins:
  • Evolution:  Life began as a "simple" organism by accident and has developed into more complex organisms through mutations and natural selection.
  • Creation:  Life began fully developed as the various major "kinds" by an Intelligent Being (God).
