Study Outline: Origin of Man

17 Jan

gnostic-god

There are two predominate theories today as to the Origin of Man. There are several other theories, and possible theories we will have to consider later on, but for the time being, we’ll concentrate on these two.

While this study is an inquiry into the Origin of Man, it will become quite apparent early on that we will eventually also have to consider the entire Origin of the Universe, as the dating methods used for this latter have a direct influence on the former;  the Origin of the Universe, in a very real way, establishes the reference point for the Origin of Man.

Considering these conditions I have established a tentative outline for this course of inquiry. It is as follows:

I. Science

—A. Dating Methods

——1. Radiocarbon

——2. Argon

——3. Potassium

——4. Verve Analysis

——5. Others

—B. Theories

——1. Big Bang

——2. Primordial Slime

——3. Evolution

———a. Anaximander

———b. Lamarck

———c. Malthus

———d. Darwin

———e. Recent Theorists

—C. Scientific Consensus

——1. Anthropology

——2. Geology

——3. Archaeology

——4. Astronomy

——5. Psychology

——6. Others

—D. Evaluation

——1. Disciplinary Consistency

——2. Adherence to Principles of Logic

——3. Historical Evaluation

——4. On Scientific  Verifiability

——5. Validity of the Scientific Positions

II. Intelligent Design, or Creation.

—A. Dating Methods

——1. Radiocarbon (variance)

——2. History

——3. The Bible

——4. Archaeology

——5. Other Religious Books

—B. Theories

——1. The 6-Day Creation

——2. Variances of Interpretation

——3. Creation and Intelligent Design

————viii. Incan

————ix. Chinese

————x. Others

—C. Creation Consensus

——1. Uniformity of Theory

——2. Place of Evolution

——3. Scientific Validity (if any) for Creation

———a. Anthropology

———b. Geology

———c. Archaeology

———d. Astronomy

———e. Psychology

———f. Others

–D. Evaluation

——1. Disciplinary Consistency

——2. Adherence to Principles of Logic

——3. Historical Evaluation

——4. On Scientific  Verifiability

——5. Validity of the Creation Positions

III. Other Possible Theories for the Origin of Man

IV. Conclusions

—A. Argument for Science
