Creationism is the belief that both the Universe and earth were created through acts of divine creation. Creationism is believed by many religions, especially Christianity. Creationism has become famous due to the large debate concerning the science and religious aspects of the theory. The main portion of the debate is should the theory be taught in public high school biology classrooms. The theory of creationism should be taught in schools because, there is not a way to prove living creatures came from non-living substances, the body’s biological systems are too complex to have evolved, and evolution is also a theory.
Since the early 1900s, there has been debate over what should be taught in public schools, creationism or evolution (Munro

The assumption there is/was no supernatural input to the universe is unscientific is impossible of proof, religious, and unfounded (Morris 4). There is more evidence for living creatures being created, then there is for living creatures evolving. The theory of evolution is very important to scientific communities, but there is some conflict when it comes to proving that evolution is actually occurring and that we are descendants of a single cell or a few cells (Lynn 8). Hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen appeared in earth 's early atmosphere. The elements required to make deoxyribonucleic acid, the most important part of eukaryotic cells, are hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, and phosphorus. Since elements cannot be created, and all the elements required to make deoxyribonucleic acid were not present, eukaryotic cells could not have evolved from the simple, early atmosphere of earth. There is no other way to describe how the phosphorus was added to the other elements except that there was a source of creation involved in the making of deoxyribonucleic acid.
The theory of evolution states that the creatures evolved through natural selection. There is not a way to test that natural selection occurred or is occurring. Natural selection is the belief that certain genes are randomly picked to better suit the environment. Genetic drift, the bottleneck example, human effort effect, sexual selection, the founder effect, and the level of randomness involved in mating are examples taught in high school biology classrooms in hopes to encourage natural selection and evolution theories in high
