Current Views About the World Around Us

Red Rover on Mars used to explore the surface.

The majority of textbooks present an understanding of the world around us from a materialistic and evolutionary standpoint from which it is assumed that:

  • The universe arose from the “big bang”;
  • Life originated either through the formation of the simplest organisms from primordial chemicals or through microbial life arriving from space;
  • All contemporary living things are modified descendants of a universal common ancestor;
  • Biological evolution is the mechanism which explains the diversity of life on earth;
  • Deep time is necessary for such processes to take place.

But how well established is this?
