Evolution and Creationism

Evolution and Creationism theories have long been at the centre of heated discussions and arguments, providing two differing accounts on Earth’s formation and humanity’s history.

Many remain undecided on which side to believe; perceptions can differ depending on a person’s overall outlook on life or beliefs they adhere to – such as evolution being scientific fact while religion states otherwise; one view argues for everything to have its origin somewhere whereas evolution claims that all living organisms, from plants to humans were formed over time while Creationism claims everything came about through creation forces while evolutionists hold fast; in terms of creation there’s always been some sort of primordial form that formed everything around us that today; these two views cannot exist side-by-side!


Evolution refers to any change observed over time that can be directly tied to genetics (the study of life due to inheritance of traits from one generation to the next), although living organisms undergo evolutionary transformation for various reasons.

Reproduction among humans and animals, genetic factors playing an integral part in evolution processes are just two reasons this topic covers medical, nonmedical, philosophical and biological topics. Evolution affects every aspect of our lives from physical structures to psychological ones, from micro evolutionary change to long term environment shifts.

There are different kinds of evolution such as micro evolutionary concepts which describe smaller shifts while macro evolutionary concepts deal with long term environmental shifts.


Creationism is similar to evolution but stems from religious people’s beliefs about creationism. They believe the universe, sun and moon were made by God himself and that nothing in it came about from any big bang process – instead God is responsible.

However these beliefs have also been widely debated with various scholars across different faiths having different takes on how earth was made.

Difference Between Evolutionism and Creationism

Differences between these concepts lie in their beliefs regarding the origins of our universe; each holds different theories as per religion or belief system. Evolutionists believe our planet was formed centuries ago via an explosive “big bang”.

Conversely, creationism scholars hold that God himself created our surroundings. Evolutionists believe that natural creations existed long before life emerged on Earth; while proponents of creationism believe these creations result from later evolutionary processes.

Creationism asserts that humans evolved from apes from the start of time; while evolution asserts they are uniquely created creatures by God. Evolution can often prove more complex to grasp when contrasted against religious views based on creationism.

Comparison chart

Here is a comparison chart between evolution and creationism:

Evolution Creationism


Scientific theory that proposes natural processes and mechanisms as the explanation for the diversity of life on Earth



Religious belief that asserts that the universe and all living things were created by a divine being

Supported by a large body of scientific evidence, including the fossil record, biogeography, comparative anatomy, and molecular biology Based on religious texts and arguments from design
Proposes that the diversity of life on Earth has developed over millions of years through natural processes Typically asserts that the universe and all living things were created in a relatively short period of time, often within the span of a few days
Widely accepted as a scientific theory by the scientific community and is supported by a large body of evidence Not widely accepted as a scientific theory and is often seen as incompatible with scientific inquiry
Typically taught in science classes in schools and universities around the world Often taught in religious studies classes or in schools that promote a particular religious worldview
Does not rely on the existence of a divine being to explain the diversity of life on Earth Relies on the existence of a divine being to explain the origin of the universe and all living things
Compatible with scientific inquiry and method Seen by some as incompatible with scientific inquiry and method
Does not provide a moral framework or purpose for human existence Often provides a moral framework and purpose for human existence based on religious teachings
Does not necessarily conflict with religious beliefs Can conflict with some religious beliefs that reject scientific explanations of the origins of life
Does not necessarily exclude the possibility of a divine being or intelligent design, but does not require them as explanations for the diversity of life on Earth Requires the existence of a divine being as an explanation for the origin of the universe and all living things
Generally accepted as the most widely supported scientific theory explaining the diversity of life on Earth Not accepted as a scientific theory by the majority of the scientific community

It’s worth noting that this is a general comparison, and there are many nuances and variations within each position, as well as variations in the way different individuals and groups interpret and understand these concepts.


Evolutionism and creationism pose many philosophical, religious, scientific, and educational questions about religion, science, education, faith-based religious texts interpretation and education policy influence compared to one another.

Conflict between these worldviews led to extensive public school science curriculum discussions about inclusion of creationism with evolution despite attempts at finding common ground with Theistic Evolution as both positions hold very disparate viewpoints on Earth’s life’s origins and diversity.

The debate remains ongoing today despite attempts at reaching common ground using Theistic Evolution because both positions hold vastly differing ideas regarding life’s source and diversity than that which evolutionists hold today.
