There has been an on going debate about creation and evolution for hundreds of years and there is multiple sides to each debate. I agree with the bible that we were created by God. Some of the following facts support my belief that creationism is more realistic than evolution.

Creation shows the existence of a creator who has used his creative abilities, creating this world. Thus, apparent design in biology would constitute evidence for a Designer. It is a self-evident and universally recognized truth: concept and design require an intelligent designer. So, while recognizing design in biology is not based upon religious premise, it certainly has theological implications. Do we find apparent design in biology? Yes. In fact, apparent design pervades the biologic realm. When we apply the general principles of detecting design to living creatures, we find it reasonable to infer the existence of a Creator. This opinion is one of many who have debated creation vs. evolution. This is suggesting that a “greater being” God in this case has created the world in his image. This also is implying that if God didn't make the heaves and the earth and people, then who or what did? Creation is also a concept that’s hard to grasp for many that’s why this is a hard debate to have. 

Evolution stresses the naturalistic (random, undirected) descent of all living creatures from a common ancestor who originally evolved from inorganic matter. Today, we know that mechanism to be deficient, even in light of genetic mutation. With the tremendous advances we've made in molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics over the past fifty years we've been exposed to a whole new dimension in living systems that was previously unknown. Evolutionary biologists are now looking for a new mechanism, one that can overcome genetic constraints and other chemical-oriented barriers that have been identified in recent years. Until this mechanism is found, the theory of evolution (a theory which has...
