I have been trying to get information about the Creationist (versus Evolution) argument, but I haven't really gotten much information. I am hoping that someone here can help, I promise this is NOT an attack on anyone's beliefs. I tried to look it up on Wikipedia, but was oddly linked to "Pastafarian" and "Invisible Pink Unicorn". Best response will go to somebody who can explain it to me so that it makes sense! And don't worry, I don't give out negative ratings. Thanks in advance for looking this over, please respond if you can offer some insight! :-) (I get my smileys in about five more posts!!)

In a nutshell, the creationist argument sticks to the Bible's concept of the "creation" story. You know, God made the earth and everything in it in 7 days, God made man from dust and breathed the "breath of life" into him, so that means Mr. Darwin is dreaming when he made up the evolution stuff. That's basically the backbone of creationism. Try searching for History of creationism in Wikipedia, there's a more elaborate explanation there.

Thanks Super JJ and Craftcatcher! I spent some time with Wikipedia before posting here, but Wikipedia describes it as a scientifically defunct theory, and provides links to the Spaghetti Monster and the Invisible Pink Unicorn! Thanks!

I don't know exactly what you're looking for hon. Basically all creationism means is the belief that a "God" created the Universe and human beings. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creationism

Creationism varies from creationist to creationist. Some creationists believe in the literal interpretation of their religious account of how the world came to be. Others believe that a divine being had a hand in creating life. Usually both arguments are characterized by the belief that everything is too complex to have come about without the help of a creator. I wouldn't know how else to explain it in order for it to make sense. What I just stated is the baseline belief all creationists have. Everything else varies from creationist to creationist, and to fully get a grasp of what they believe, you just have to go to sites like answersingenesis.com and read their articles.

Thanks for the reply. In that sense, I would consider myself a creationist. While I definitely believe in evolution, I have no doubt that there must be a creator behind it all! Thanks for the link!

http://creationist.org/ Well, I found this site. I don't know if it'll tell you what you want to know or not. Several people have already responded in a very comprehensive manner.
