Creationism is an idea that defines the way that we as a human race ended up at where we are today. In short, God created the world as it is written in the Bible. While there may be other ideas out there, such as evolution, all of them are wrong. The only one that is right is the one in The Bible, as it is God’s word on paper. To deny God’s word on paper would be to deny God himself. When I reference “the Bible”, I mean the holy text of God that everyone is to abide by. Not some fairy tale written by men in the desert thousands of years ago that knew they could control the masses while they were weak and vulnerable.
Some people believe that other causes are the reason for our existence here. Sadly, these cockamamie tales are the ones taught to our children in school. What’s even worse is that they directly contradict the Holy Bible! The most common is the idea that humans “evolved” from monkeys. (Nye, “Evolution v. Creationism Debate”) This is crazy, at best. Have you ever seen a monkey transform into a person? I suggest you try it sometime. Go ...

- Did you know that a staggering 46% of Americans believe that creationism is the one and only explanation for human existence. (Gallup) Interestingly, 100% of them are correct. While 46% may not seem large at first, the theory that is being taught to children in school instead is believed by only 15% of the American population. These statistics that were discovered by a recent Gallup poll show that a vast majority of Americans do not approve of what their precious children are being taught in school....

- Invalidity of the Creationism Theory Since I was a small child I have been interested in science, specifically the natural sciences. They have always intensely fascinated me. So of course being the curious child I was, I read many volumes on paleontology, paleo-archeology, and geology. During this same time, my parents were deeply involved in the church. They both had just graduated from seminary school and were thinking of starting their own ministry. This of course caused quite a conflict in me.... [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essays]

- The Scopes Trial, which was also known as ‘The Monkey Trial’ or The State of Tennessee vs. Scopes, was a very popular legal dispute in court that was between the theory of evolution and creationism, and played a major role which shaped the 1920’s. What was just as popular was the interpretation of the case, if not more than the actual result of the dispute. This case received world-wide attention and the media coverage produced many different opinions world-wide. A major factor of why the Scopes trial had received so much attention in such an insignificant town was because of the stage the trial was played out on.... [tags: tennessee, school, scope]

- My research of Darwinian evolution has led me to believe that there is little room for spirituality of any kind in a truly rigorous scientific theory of the origin of life. This is disconcerting, to say the least. Obviously we have outgrown a strictly creationist lens, but has religion become completely obsolete. Does spirituality have a real place amongst the scientific tenets of evolutionary theory, or is it merely a crutch that we lean on. Can God and Darwin co-exist. The constantly mounting collection of evidence for evolution by natural selection is almost impossible to ignore.... [tags: Natural Selection, Evolution Essays]

- Teaching Creationism or Intelligent Design to our youth can be done in a way that is neither opinion based nor completely fact based, but may hold some risk of personal interpretation. The first thing needed to be considered is how can children of the middle school age range grasp such a deep subject and have the capacity to reach their own conclusion. Information found regarding the development of children in this developmental range was found in the book titled "Characteristics of Middle Grade Students,” Caught in the Middle by the Sacramento Department of Education....

- Surveys show that fifty percent of adults in Turkey, forty percent in the USA and fifteen percent in the UK reject the theory of evolution and believe that life on Earth came into existence as described in the religious texts (Jones and Reiss, 2007; Miller; Scott and Okamoto, 2006; Lawes, 2009). President G. W. Bush commented as follow: Both sides ought to be taught properly...so people can understand what the debate is about....Part of education is to expose people to different schools of thoughts....You’re asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, and the answer is yes (Baker and Slevin, 2005)....

- On Thursday 24 November 1859, Charles Darwin published and made available to the western world his magnum opus, On the Origin of Species, a compilation of some twenty plus years of research regarding the human biology and its advancement. Darwin proposed in Origins that all life slowly evolved, biologically mutated over a period of time, to its present day form. Expanding on prior research in the field of genetics, Darwin theorized a "survival of the fittest" complex which forced basic animals to evolve new advanced traits to survive in their respective environments, in the process theorizing that humans also evolved from lesser creatures....

- Since the publication of Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species, in which the theory of evolution has risen, people have debated the merits of the theories of creationism and evolution. The theory of is reinforced through scientific studies using DNA, genetics and its mutation, the fossil record and the change in earlier species that has been encountered, and the distribution of related species of animals over a broad geographical range. To fully understand exactly what a fossil is, look at how they are made.... [tags: Evolution vs Creationism]

- Individuals believe in creation, some in evolution, and some are undecided (Morris Henry). Some argue whether or not evolution and creationism should be taught in schools. Others feel as though creation is not a valid enough idea to actually be taught to the youth of our generation. There have been many debates and controversy going on for many years about this subject. That is because people feel strongly about this topic and their beliefs. Surveys, articles, case studies and a vast amount of other sources state that a large amount of people all over the world want both evolution and creationism to be taught in school due to the fact that both attempt to explain the origins of the universe...

- The Validity of Creationism and Evolution Abstract: This paper discusses the validity of both creation and evolution and examines whether they can interact with each other. Besides doing my own research, I have chosen to interview four people extensively involved in either Christianity or biology. I specifically picked interviewees who strongly supported either evolution or creation to get both sides of the issue. Two of the people were from United Christian Fellowship (UCF): Andrew Larratt-Smith, leader of UCF, and Ricardo Dawkins, UCF small group member.... [tags: Science Creationism Evolution Essays]
