Creationism is not an accurate model of origins.

Pros
Cons
  • Scientific evidence points to Earth being billions of years old.

  • DNA evidence supports the claim of common ancestry.

  • Claims in Genesis have been proven false.

  • Creationism is not falsifiable, and therefore not a scientific model in the Popperian sense.

  • Fossils and other anthropological and biological discoveries are against a theory which considers men and animals created with their current aspect, without any kind of evolution at all

  • Allegorically speaking Creationism is accurate. However, as a scientific model of the Universe it is not accurate.

  • There is no particular reason that people's beliefs about the origin of the universe should be based in scientific evidence.

  • The first verse of Genesis valid, because it is the best explanation for the origin of the universe. From nothing, nothing comes. 1) Everything that begins to exist, must have a cause 2) The universe began to exist 3) Therefore, the universe had a cause.

  • There is no way to determine accuracy, or inaccuracy, when a supernatural force is in play because it is not observable. Since we have immeasurable variables, the degree of accuracy of creationism cannot be deduced.
