Excerpt from The Power Within Us by Russell M. Nelson, Pub. 1988: 1

Our Divine Creation

Thoughts of life, death, and resurrection bring us to face crucial questions. How were we made? By whom? And why?

Throughout the ages, some persons without scriptural understanding have tried to explain our existence by pretentious words such as ex nihilo (out of nothing). Others have deduced that, because of certain similarities between different forms of life, there has been a natural selection of the species, or organic evolution from one form to another. Still others have concluded that man came as a consequence of a “Big Bang,” which resulted in the creation of our planet and life upon it.

To me such theories are unbelievable.
