Evolution is a theory. Creationism is a theory. But why can one theory be taught while the other one cant? There is no proof that we came from a small tiny organism that slowly evolved over time. There is no proof God created all life as we know it. They are both theories. If anything, why do we still teach the big bang theory in school anyways? Scientist believe millions upon millions of years ago their was a tiny little ball, smaller then the period that will end this sentence, heck some scientist conclude that it was something so small, it was almost nothing
. While initially, they said it was a huge explosion, they now say it is more of expansion. Still you can't get something from nothing
. So this little tiny nothingness created everything. It created the galaxies, universe, the planets, everything. At some point in time, earth was formed. At first (as quoted from high school biology text book) the earth surface was filled with molten lava, there was nothing alive. The earth at some point decided to cool, clouds rolled in and it started to rain, cooling and hardening the earth surface to create a hard rock crust. Now it kept raining and raining and large bodies of water formed which we call oceans. The book goes on to describe this next part the creation of life. When these oceans formed, between all different gasses and components on the surface mixing with this rain it created in laymen terms a "soup." From this soup of different chemicals and gasses, life began. Just like that, it just "began."
While i do believe in creationism (that god created us out of his own image), i do not support it being taught in school, nor do i support evolution being taught in schools. They are both theory's and beliefs, none of which can be proven true
. Religion has no right in schools. Evolution is a religion.
How stuff works.
