November 2018 marks the 159th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, the scientific book that introduced the concept of evolution by natural selection.
Today evolution theory has expanded to encompass every scientific discipline, and in this age of digital technologies and genetics, Evolution Theory has become a foundational scientific truth which continues to expand as new research uncovers more observed facts to add to its vast database.

On the flip side, teaching creationism is only allowed in certain fundamentalist xristian states in the US and taught in some fundamentalist Islamic countries. It is illegal to teach creationism in the European Union and irrelevant in non-Christian countries.

No creationist has ever been able to tell me why if creationism is scientifically superior, r.e. evidence and scientific research, why it isn't taught as fact in countries such as India, Japan, South Korea, China, etc.. that don't have an ideological dog in the creationism vs evolution fight.
