Where did we come from?
The Big Bang Theory and the Theory of Evolution are taught as if they are scientific facts. The word "theory" is usually ignored. (Theory: A proposed explanation whose status is still conjectural. Conjecture: The formation or expression of an opinion or theory without sufficient evidence for proof. -Random House Webster's College Dictionary 1991.) These "theory's" are quite convenient for those who do not wish to believe in an eternal, omnipresent, creator God.
But what does it take more faith to believe?
The big bang theory? First there was nothing at all, and all of a sudden a "infinitesimally small, infinitely hot, infinitely dense" singularity formed, which appeared out of nowhere for reasons unknown, which inflated, expanded and cooled, going from very, very small and very, very hot, to the size and temperature of our current universe, and continues to expand and cool to this day (from www.big-bang-theory.com). The cooling led to the evolvement of atoms, protons, neutrons, quarks, etc., and apparently, eventually--us, I assume. And thus we have the universe and everything in it, organized, efficient, all parts moving in sync, all brought together by a random, unintelligent something or other. Take your car apart, piece by piece, how many millions of years do you think it will take for all the parts to come back together to make a whole car, or something better, without an intelligent being putting it back together? (The parts will be kind of rusty by then.)
Then there is the theory of evolution. We all came from the sea, and over time evolved from sea creatures, to land creatures, to us. Apparently going from improvement to improvement. I wonder what we will be a million years from now under this theory??? Nature teaches us matter doesn't improve over time, but diminishes and decays. We get old and we die, we don't get younger and better. Metal rusts, cloth wears out, flesh goes back to dust.
Creation (not a theory) is explained in the Word of God, how an intelligent, eternal, omnipresent, everlasting, Spirit -- God, created the all that exists, and created a Spirit Being -- Man (not a non-spirit being -- ape) after His image and likeness, and man became a living soul.
Which explanation of creation takes more faith to believe? I suppose if you don't want to believe that everything, including us, was created by God, then you can probably stretttttttttch your faith way, way out there and accept that everything came about randomly as in the big bang theory or things are progressing and getting better and better as in the theory of evolution. It's just much easier for me to believe in an intelligent Creator.
