Evolutionary Biology vs. Creationism

Evolutionary biology and Creationism are both alike and different in many ways. Evolutionary biology is known as an “interdisciplinary field”. That is because it is known to include scientists from a wide range of both field and lab oriented disciplines. Evolutionary biology includes scientist who have special training in mammalogy, ornithology, and herpetology. Creationism only has one creator, which is God. God is the one and only scientist and creator of Creationism.

Of course evolution plays a major role in both evolutionary biology and creationism. The common definition used for evolution is, “evolution is the process of change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms from one generation to the next.” One way evolution plays a major role in evolutionary biology is because the many scientists in the fields of evolutionary biology use the organisms from their field to answer general questions of evolution. Evolution plays a major role in creationism because creationism is all about how God created everything such as humanity, the Earth, the sun, and universe. Evolution is how the process of change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms from one generation to the next, and God created everything in creationism, which affected everything from past generations, and still affects change to this generation.

In evolution, mutations; which are said to be “changes to the nucleotide sequence of the genetic material of an organism” can produce new or altered traits in individuals in genes. A gene is usually defined to be a region of DNA that controls a hereditary characteristic. Natural selection is also known to be, “a process by which heritable traits that are helpful for survival and reproduction while harmful traits become rarer.” Natural selection usually happens when a person with a more advantage with their traits are more likely to reproduce successfully, so more people in the next generation...
