Scientific Essay from the year 2007 in the subject English - Discussion and Essays, grade: 2,0, University of Linz (Internationales Management: Abteilung fur Fachsprachen und interkulturelle Kommunikation), course: Englisch - Text Produktion 1 (B2+), language: English, abstract: "God created the universe to look old." This is just one argument of just one creationism theory. Evolutionism is not the only theory of how the earth and every living being were created. People who believe in a supernatural "higher being" involved into the development of life claim that creationism is a science too. But if God created the universe to look old, though the Bible is an unquestioned truth: Is God a deceiver? US creationists usually support a literal interpretation of the Bible, although even the Vatican itself claimed that the evolution theory by Darwin is compatible with the history of creation written in the Bible. (Pope Benedict XVI., 2007) The following text will focus on the discussion between creationists and evolutionists in the USA. The two most common theories in the USA are "Scientific Creationism" and "Intelligent Design Creationism." The dossier will cover the position of the creationists in respect of the US education system, their involvement in political decisions and the "Institute of Creation Research." As the theory of creationism is found not only in devout regions of the USA but worldwide, the paper will also give a comparison of the situation in the USA and Europe."
