Creationism

Creationism is the religious belief that life, the Earth, and the universe are the creation of a supernatural being. As science developed during the 18th century and forward, various views aimed at reconciling science with the Abrahamic creation nar... rative developed in Western societies. Those holding that species had been created separately were generally called "advocates of creation" but were also called "creationists", as in private correspondence between Charles Darwin and his friends. As the creation–evolution controversy developed over time, the term "anti-evolutionists" became common. In 1929 in the United States, the term "creationism" first became associated with Christian fundamentalists, specifically with their rejection of human evolution and belief in a young Earth—although this usage was contested by other groups, such as old Earth creationists and evolutionary creationists, who hold different concepts of creation.Today, the American Scientific Affiliation recognizes that there are different opinions among creationists on the method of creation, while acknowledging unity on the Abrahamic belief that God "created the universe." Since the 1920s, literalist creationism in America has contested scientific theories, such as that of evolution, which derive from natural observations of the universe and life. Literalist creationists believe that evolution cannot adequately account for the history, diversity, and complexity of life on Earth. Fundamentalist creationists of the Christian faith usually base their belief on a literal reading of the Genesis creation narrative. Other religions have different deity-led creation myths, while different members of individual faiths vary in their acceptance of scientific findings   more

Answer to dwimiller : The Revelation cant have any internal or external discrepancies, that is why it is called Revelation. Example : God first created Earth, then Plants, then Sun.

Answer to dnasir : The term "God created" does not mean instant creation. It also means long-term based creation.

Response to DWmiller. There is about as much evidence for the existence of god as there is existence for Santa Claus. You sir, have a bag full of nothing

Dwmiller, please tell me what scientific laws clearly go against evolution and the tons of evidience to prove the Bible is true.

First off, humans are apes. Apes are Old World anthropoid mammals, more specifically a clade of tailless catarrhine primates, belonging to the biological superfamily Hominoidea. Evolution does not claim that we evolved from gorrillas, chimps, or orangutans, but rather we ALL evolved from a common ancestor.
