Evolution is a fact. It explains how living species came to be from pre-existing species without the need of any supernatural phenomena. Enormous amount of evidence, from geological timescale, fossil record to molecular genetics points toward this one fact. Despite all evidence, religious people, indoctrinated by their faith, continue to believe creationism and fight back science. Misleading younger generations pushing them away from reason and science.

Creationism is true and explain how the living things came into being. The whole organized universe points toward this
fact that only one power is the controlling authority who created the universe .
I accepted the Pro request on the basis that misconduct will not be tolerated. I am sure Pro will take care of that.
Evolution can be discussed all day long, but Can evolutionist show me how something comes from nothing wherein it then of its own accord, proceeds to gain intelligence? where there was no intelligence.
Further, I'll say this, if man can exercise an ingenuity that creates wonders, why is it not possible for there to be a being of higher intelligence who created us? . I'm saying at least posit the belief there can be a greater being than man (Some scientist).
Why do we cling to a moral code among st ourselves? To say it developed just doesn't work .
Why were we angry about the Holocaust, Columbine, 9/11, the Boston Bombings?
Why does it matter to us? What is it in us that says it's wrong? Are we seriously going to argue that evolution created the ability to distinguish right from wrong in us? If so, what defines good and bad? Why do we look for something greater than ourselves? To say we just decided to start questioning our existence doesn't work. Inherently, you can seek to crush or dispel it all day long, but there is something in us that leads us to know there's more. It's the reason for the space program. It's the reason science even exists.

Let me put some more facts which support creationism.
There is no proof that apes turned into humans. Evolutionists still tell the story that once upon a time humans evolved from ape-like creatures. Things have changed. Thousands of fossils and fossil fragments of apes and humans have now been found " and they don't show a steady progression from apes to humans at all.
The larynx, or voice box, sits lower in the throat in humans than in Apes make him totally different than Apes. We also possess a descended hyoid bone " this horseshoe-shaped bone below the tongue, unique in that it is not attached to any other bones in the body, allows us to articulate words when speaking. Lots of other feature like reproduction. our extraordinary brain etc. Most animals reproduce until they die, but in humans, females can survive long after ceasing reproduction. all these feature can not be evolved .

Pro forfeited this round but I will not leave the topic. Lots of evidence proves that evolution is wrong and creationism is the right approach. I will hit evolution with another evidence.
Bats,are the only mammals that can fly. Evolutionist are unable to link with any other mammalian group . Approximately 1000 species of bats exist worldwide. it is suggested that this was because they didn't evolve, but were created as bats in the beginning by Allah(God).
The earliest fossil bats(50 million years old), are clearly identifiable as bats, with no hint that they have evolved from anything that was not a bat.

Pro again forfeited the round. I think my friend Pro has agreed with me that creationism is the fact and truth. and Evolution has no base.There is no evidence that evolution has occurred because no transitional forms exist in fossils i.e. scientists cannot prove with fossils that fish evolved into amphibians or that amphibians evolved into reptiles, or that reptiles evolved into birds and mammals.
There is of course no scientific law or demonstrable process that would let something evolve from nothing. If there was nothing in the universe to begin with, obviously nothing could happen to cause anything to appear.
Again, there is no scientific law or demonstrable process that can account for non-living objects coming to life. The non-living soil in your garden didn't turn into living trees and flowers. They came from seeds, cuttings, or grafts from other living trees and flowers.
Imagine all life on earth disappeared. There are no trees, plants or animals. All we have is rocks, dust, and lifeless matter. So how does the earth get populated with living things?
There is no known scientific law that would allow one kind of creature to turn naturally into a completely different kind. Insects don't evolve into more complex non-insects for instance, because they don't have the genes to do it.

To show that all life evolved from a single cell, which itself came from some type of chemical soup, there would have had to be massive genetic information genes But evolutionists have failed to show how this genes of new information occurred. Where did the information come from for the first bristles, stomachs, spines, intestines, complex blood circulation systems, intricate mouthpieces to strain special foods out of the water, and so on, when these were supposedly not present in the ancestral species?

The theory of evolution teaches that complex life-forms evolved from simple life-forms. There is no natural law known that could allow this to happen. The best that evolutionists can come up with to try to explain how this might have happened is to propose that it happened by mutations and natural selection.
