According to wikipedia creationism is the religious belief that the universe and life originated from specific acts of divine creation as opposed to the scientific conclusion that they came about through natural processes. The first use of the word creationist to describe the maker of creationism was discovered in a letter of Charles Darwin written 1856 describing those who objected on religious grounds to the emerging science of evolution.
Main points of creationism:
- All life was created by the actions of God
Some creationists say god did this in a single creative event
Some creationists don't limit creation to one event
- All the forms of life existing today were created by the actions of God
- The organisms created by God can't produce new forms of organism- only God can do this
- The most common theory follows the accounts in the Biblical Book of Genesis, but most religions have their own creation story.
- Modern creationism uses scientific evidence to support scripture
- Most scientists say the creationism theory is false and unscientific
