The Creationism and Intelligent Design Portal
The creation-evolution debate
is a recurring cultural, political, and theological dispute about the origins of the Earth
, and the universe
, a debate most prevalent in certain regions of the United States
, where it is often portrayed as part of the culture wars
. While the controversy has a long history, today it is mainly over what constitutes good science
, with the politics of creationism
primarily focusing on the teaching of creation and evolution in public education
Debate on the details of scientific theories and their philosophical or religious implications are often the most intense parts of the controversy. Some participants on both sides believe that the conflict boils down to opposing definitions of all or parts of science, reality, and religion. Accusations of misleading formulations, incorrect or false statements, and inappropriate mixing of ideas are also fundamental points of disagreement. Some consider the term "creation vs. evolution" itself is misleading, believing it implies a false dichotomy and adds fuel to the debate.
