Evolution vs. Creationism: An Argumentative Paper explosion; nothing turns into something, and the world as we know it is formed. Or, there is a one true God who formed this world through supernatural means and created man out of the dust. Both seem pretty far-fetched for the ultimate answer to the preeminent question of the age: Why we are here and where we came from. Evolution is assumed to be true due to the fact that it seems to be proven by natural scientific organic processes, and Christianity is assumed to be false because it is based off some book that a bunch of random people wrote form 5,000 years ago. All of this would be postulated if this paper was written by the general populous, but this is not the case. In this paper, evolutionism, also called Darwinism, and creationism will be compared and contrasted, and in the end, give substantial information as to why creationism is the only conceivable answer.

Or in a belief that does have proof and undeniable evidence, one that has a promise of everlasting life as apposed to a dark nothingness? A decision must be reached. Whether through further evidence outside this paper, or just through your day to day life, your must know where your beliefs lie. Just know, that if what Christians say is true, and the evidence is overlooked and criticized, you will face something much, much worse than being castigated by those around you.
