Creationism/Intelligent Design vs. Evolution
- Evidence for natural selection seems compelling.
The Theory of Evolution arises from those facts and unifies our
scientific understanding of life at all levels: molecular, cellular,
organismal, and ecosystem.
- The Theory of Evolution takes no position on God
or spiritual beliefs. These are beyond the realm of science and not
testable by the methods of science.
- "Creationism" or "Intelligent Design"
are alternative ways to think about origin of species, but they
are not scientific theories. Scientific theories are
based on observable physical evidence. Theories lead to predictions that can be tested through research.
