Origins
The secular humanists believe that the entire universe and life were just something that happened and it was like a coincidence. Their beliefs are that 4.5 years ago this world was created by a bunch of chemicals that were combined to make a single celled life that over billions of years mutated itself into the world as we see it today.

Identity
To the secularist, we are no greater than an advanced animal, but no greater than the animal kingdom (Weider & Gutierrez, 2011, p. 57), or a bunch of cells and atoms.

Meaning/ Purpose
I would say that what the Secularist is looking for, would be seeking out as much happiness as the can.

The Christian believes in “microevolution” or adaptation. This is where an animal will undergo slight changes in order to adapt to changing conditions, but no new species is formed. For instance the beaks of Darwin’s finches change with the environment, but the finch will never evolve into, for instance, an eagle. There is no scientific evidence that any life form has transitioned into another life form. And God was careful to make note that this would not happen (Genesis 1:11-12, 21-25).

Identity
In contrast to the secularist idea that we are but mere animals, the Bible tells us that we were a special creation, formed in God’s image. The animals were spoken into existence in groups, but Adam was made from the dust into a living soul (Genesis 2:7). We were to be caretakers of, and have dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:28). Adam changed the whole thing when he disobeyed God, and we were cast out of paradise. But God sent us a Savior; and under the new covenant, we are now to be conformed to Christ’s image (Romans 8:29). He was our perfect example, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can grow to become more and more Christ-like (2 Peter 1:5-8).

Meaning/ Purpose
In contrast to the vain and empty pursuits of the unbeliever, the Christian’s purposes are to know God ( Weider & Gutierrez, 2011, p. 61); to love one another (John 13:35); and to serve each other (Matthew 25:34-40). There is no higher calling, no occupation so satisfying. Anybody who has ever given a...
