Debate Round No. 1

Burden of proof shared.

Creationism

'"The belief that the universe and living organisms originate from specific acts of divine creation, as in the biblical account, rather than by natural processes such as evolution""

Human share there genetics with animals some examples are listed below.
Chimpanzee :96% Cat: 90%
Cow: 80%
Mouse: 75%

The theory of creationism suggests that we have nothing in common with animals we were created separately from them however if this is the case why do we share a significant proportion of their dna?. The theory of evolution provides the only reasonable explanation by saying we share a common anteater and have evolved due to the theory of survival of the strongest.

Creationists believe that the universes is only 6000 years old However we see light from distant galaxies that has traveled millions of light years clearly showing the universe is much older than 6000 years. Carbon dating has also allowed us to identify objects on the earth millions of years old again proving the earth has existed for millions not thousands of years.

If humans have been on their earth thought its history we co-existed with the dinosaurs why have we found no evidence to prove this after all we have found dinosaur fossils.

The universe is expanding this theory is explained by the big bang however creationism offers no explanation for this.

These are my opening arguments.
