creationism

Evolutionary biology
A philosophy based on the Judeo-Christian concept that all forms of life, in particular human life, were created from nothing (by God). Creationism is the virtual opposite of Darwinism or evolution, in which all organisms are believed to have evolved from another.

creationism

The belief that the account of the creation of the world contained in the first chapter of the book of Genesis is literally true. The implication, often expressed, is that the scientific account, including the geological evidence, is false. Creationism denies Darwinian evolution, but a belief in, and knowledge of, evolution has become an essential component in the mental armamentarium of the medical scientist. (See EVOLUTIONARY MEDICINE.)

creationism

an old-fashioned and outdated doctrine that each species of organism arose in an independent fashion by special creation. Such views have now been largely replaced by evolutionary theory but are still held by some on religious grounds.
