How to people cling onto creationism, in the face of overwhelming evidence?
Oh, lots of reasons. Sometimes it's just a strength of tradition (religion) while other times people don't like to think for themselves so they let others think for them. I think a lot of people believe in creationism because they don't believe that you can believe in both the Bible and science, which is silly, if you ask me. And of course there is the whole critial thinking aspect of it. Evolution only makes sense if you see the patterns, acknowlege them, and think about it, but to be perfectly honest I don't think all that many people have these logic-based minds that follow through like this...

Scientists have proven that organic life can be generated if you have the correct ingredients (primordial soup as you say it) and time and chance.
The point isn't that something knows how to replicate itself or not. Simply that things that replicate themselves in some basic way are more probable to survive than those which don't.
I don't wish to argue against God, or the existence of God. Simply, if you are a creationist you must look at the balance of evidence and see that there is a wealth of evidence against you, and none on your side. If you are a rational thinker, then you must realize that you should consider evolution to be correct on balance of probability.
Thus I suppose an answer is that creationist are incapable of reasoned thought. But this is a little satisfying is it not?
Christianity is an old belief ... it's like anything else that one gets addicted to and cannot live without. Old habits are hard to 'kick'. Some die as heroin addicts some die as Christians and some like me will got to "Hell" for posting this (in the minds of some people anyway). We will shed our childish religious beliefs sooner than later, education will prevail!
(I know I have offended many people here but I find Christianity and ANY other monotheistic religion offensive in itself, controlling, perverted, degenerating and overall offensive towards people in general ...)

Since joining HubPages, I have read the many evolution versus creationism and atheism versus religion debates. As an atheistic evolutionist, I have read what I considered to be the strange views of a religious minority, including beliefs in intelligent design and other forms of...

Should BOTH Evolution AND Creation should be thought in public schools?I think yes. Evolutionists state that Creationists brainwash children by not allowing other things to be studied by children. However Evolutionists fall into the same trap; they only allow Evolution and nothing else. I think...
