BibArch Home Up Creation Theory Evolutionary Theory

Creationism, the belief that God brought into being the universe and all life forms, has developed along several lines giving rise to a number of theological models accounting for humanity's presence in the world. These ideologies have religious faith and divine revelation (the domain of special revelation in theological terminology) in common.

Creationists argue that the biblical creation account does not contradict true science. Nevertheless, scientific hypothesis testing and religious faith constitute radically different means of coming to a knowledge of the universe. The former deals with the production of facts while the latter deals with the search for truth. They arise from two irreconcilable paradigms. One focuses upon general revelation and the other upon special revelation.

In Christian theology, a domain of special revelation, Godís calling (John 6:44, 6:65) enables people to understand Godís plan and truth. Only those who encounter God and have their minds supernaturally opened by God can understand the truth in these matters. This rationale limits what secular scientists can learn and understand. Unless a scientist receives such a calling the scientist will be "always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth" (II Timothy 3:7 NASB). The scientist will only be able to deal with general revelation limiting him or her to the production of facts not truths. The scientific community, on the other hand, sees Christianity and Judaism as hopelessly enmeshed in unproven assumptions, conflicting ideologies, convoluted logic, anti-intellectualism, and religious bias.
