Creation and evolution are two very different beliefs with very different ideas and many different aspects. Creationists believe in God and that he is the one who created man and keep things running smoothly. There are many different types of creationists.

It takes time for things to evolve, especially with the complexity of most organisms. Evolution occurs because organisms must change to survive. These changes occur
