Creationism is a the Christian (and possibly Islamic?) biblical belief that the earth and everything in it was created in 6 days.
Some believe that particular aspect of the creation story had its origins in earlier Mesopotamian creation myths

"Panbabylonists believe the creation myth in the Book of Genesis came from older Mesopotamian creation myths. The Mesopotamian creation myths are recorded in the Enûma Eliš(or Enuma Elish), the Atra-Hasis, the 'Eridu Genesis' and on the 'Barton Cylinder'. Although the plots are different, there are similarities between the Mesopotamian and Jewish myths.

In the beginning of both myths the universe is shapeless and there is nothing but water. In the beginning of Enûma Eliš there is Abzu (freshwater) and Tiamat (saltwater), which mingle together. In the beginning of Genesis, "darkness was over the surface of the deep" and the Jewish god Yahweh is "hovering over the waters".[Genesis 1:2] It has been argued that the Hebrew word for "the deep", tehom, is cognate with tiamat.

In the Enûma Eliš there are six generations of gods, created one after the other. Each god is associated with something, such as sky or earth. This parallels the six days of creation in Genesis, where Elohim (plural) creates a different thing on each day.

In the Enûma Eliš, the sixth-generation god Marduk consults with other gods and decides to make mankind as servants, so that the gods can rest. Likewise, Elohim makes mankind on the sixth day (saying "let us make mankind in our image") and then rests.

In both myths, day and night forego the creation of the luminous bodies (Genesis 1:5, 8, 13, and 14ff.; Enûma Eliš 1:38), whose function is to yield light and mark time (Genesis 1:14; Enûma Eliš 5:12–13)."

omg it's been 30 minutes and none of you had some super pretentist crap to spew.

are you all asleep??

if you are so special, why are you not designing something to get the average man off this planet, and in fact, prove to "average joe" the 1969 moon landing happened, or for that fact, we are not surrounded by an oval shaped "magic" net?

why are you not building the tsunami proof water wall?
why are you not harnessing the strength of our sun and multiplying it tenfold on the ground?

get a frigging clue, HATERS. people like you are why human rights violations happen on our soil, to citizens and "foreigners". people like YOU are why we bailout a bank but not a citizen for making likewise stupid manuvuers. ALSO, it is why we have wars, send our boys to die, while killing others children.

GET IT?

i doubt it.

what is the biggest problem with american society and the world as a result of how WE live?

the fact that most children are not grown at the legal definition of "grown" (18-21) and yet are well on their way to producing more useless progeny.

and yet, appearently, most people on their deathbed have goofier ideas than the average 30 year old.. yet the average american 30 year old is stuck in poverty....

get a grip. you argue about nonsense. want to fix this country? pretend like you care about another human being and have half a grip on what faces us all. fact? i see no one who recognizes us, let alone faces what we face. so? you are just another screamer in the void. L O L

I disproved the theory you support. Thermodynamics. Scientifically speaking, none of us are real and the universe doesn't exist.
That's too easy, though. Let's pretend for a minute that we and the world actually exist, and everything evolved from a common ancestor. Where did millions of years of transitional species go between primates and man? There should still be some alive. Primates are still alive. Modern-day man is still alive. Where did everyone else go?
2-1-14 nbcnews.com 5:40a.m. Article on the upcoming Tuesday night debate with creationist Ken Ham against Bill Nye.

Bible as Scientific Evidence:
Creationist Ken Ham of 'Answers in Genesis' view is that the Genesis account of the universe's development and the rise of life on earth is LITERALLY true, including the part about "everything being done in six 24-hour days."
As a young-earth creationist, Ham contends that the universe is only about 6,000 years old. When asked "what about the 70 million-year -old fossil bones of dinosaurs"? The way Ham sees it, those are the,( lol) "MILLENNIA OLD BONES OF ANIMALS REFERRED TO IN LEGENDS AS DRAGONS". "What we BELIEVE about the age of the earth(that it is relatively young) is a consequence of our stand on 'BIBLICAL AUTHORITY', and nothing in OBSERVATIONAL science CONTRADICTS," Ham wrote this week. "You see, WE USE THE BIBLE AS EVIDENCE!"

A readers poll with the option for everyone to vote at around noon on 2-2-14 showed these results:

QU; Where do you stand on the evolution debate?
65,512 votes cast.
I side with Bill Nye -67%- 44,144 votes.
I side with Ken Ham-28%-18,030 votes.
I'm on neither side-5%- 3,338 votes.

Haven't seen him post. As you will note in my post, I bet HE didn't have a link. But since you are his official spokes person...Sorry XYZ. Shockingly, blacks supported Obama. Here's some whites supporting Romney...



Now it's your turn to apologize to the American people for trying to inflict this on us.

Typical rightwing fascist, inbred hillbilly, defensive homophobic response. But why won't you apologize to the American people? There must be some reason why you are avoiding the question. You climb down off your cousin and think about that. Also, don't you EVER forget what the American people told you to do with your fascist agenda (Also see the last 2 presidential elections) Get it right, lil' Putin fan.

Old Guy,
I have a couple more questions for you. What are you thoughts about these things ...
The common consensus seems to be that humans evolved from primates in S Africa and became hominids.
Humans are part of the biological family Hominidae, which also includes 2 species of chimpanzees, 2 species of gorillas and 2 species of orangutans.(There were other members of this family, but now they are extinct.)
mutt wrote:
Old Guy,
It's also accepted as fact that this transformation took millions of years to occur.
Hominids have been on Earth for 7 million years. They arose from an earlier family, Hylobatidae, commonly known as gibbons. About 6 million years ago, there was a common hominid ancestor that gave rise to both chimpanzees and humans. The first modern humans (H. sapiens) appeared in eastern Africa roughly 200,000 years ago.
mutt wrote:
The only evidence of these so-called hominids are a few skulls and skeletons and single bones and teeth.
No, there are MANY fossil examples. Here's a list of notable ones:

mutt wrote:
Old Guy,
Now, it seems very unlikely to me that, after having existed for millions of years, every single hominid is dead.
And how likely would it seem to you that every single dinosaur, after being the dominant life form for 135 million years, would also be dead? There are many extinct animals and plants.
