Introduction

Many people debate our origins. Evolution? Created by a god? To some, it doesn’t matter. But, with the answer lies the foundation to what many people place their every breath on.

The following story was adapted from a popular Muslim story about a debate between an atheist whom believes in Evolution and a wise religious leader, whom instead, believes in Creation.

Obviously, almost every atheist believes in Evolution. Just as obvious is that almost every Christian believes in Creation.

The Meeting

Long ago in a kingdom, there was an empire. On one side of the river were the churches and on the other side was the city. The Christians were gathered in the churches when an atheist scholar approached them. He said to them, “I don’t believe in God, there cannot be a God, you cannot hear Him or see Him, you’re wasting your time! Bring me your best debater and I will debate this issue with him.”

The best debater at the time was a simple man named David. A messenger from amongst the Christians was sent over the river to the city, where David was, in order to tell him about the atheist who was awaiting him. On crossing the river, the messenger conveyed the message to David saying, “Hey David, an atheist is waiting for you, to debate you, please come!”

David told the messenger that he would be on his way immediately.
