Creationism vs Evolutionism

Extracts from this document...


Creationism vs Evolution Creationism is the belief humanity, life, Earth, and the universe were all created by God, and it is also the belief in the Bible. There are many different arguments as to where exactly humans and the land they walked on came from. Did we evolve from monkeys or was there actually a god that created us all? Everyone has their own belief; mine is in creationism. As I said, creationism is the belief in, basically, the Bible.

The United States is based on the belief, "In God We Trust." I'm not saying that everyone needs to believe in God. Who am I to tell you what to believe in?

Since evolution and creationism both can't be completely proven, I think everyone has the right to learn about them - what they are and the theories behind them - to decide what they truly believe in. Children are already learning about evolution, so why not allow them to lean about creationism too? ...read more.
