It seems there are still arguments about whether the world was 'created' or whether it 'evolved.' What do you believe? Can you also accept the alternative view?

kiwi's rock! I like your reasoning. I also have struggled with the whole 24 hour six day creation belief. I have a hub where I discuss a revelation I believe God gave me called " Creation in seven days, or was it?" .
Well, basically it doesn't matter how we all got here. It's like, we're here, we're queer, let's just deal with it!
Loved many points you make here....
Whether it is an "intelligently designed evolution" or an "evolving intelligent design", there is definitely "intelligence" seen. That none can deny - call that intelligence by any name - God, Consciousness, etc.
Naturalism,the"belief"of today's mainstream scientists,rules out an "intelligently designed evolution"or"evolving intelligent design"Science,following the facts wherever they lead,does point to an intelligent (that's an understatement) creator.
"It takes faith to believe either" The theory of evolution is not based on faith. It's a conclusion based on observable data. In much the same way that crossing the street isn't based on faith. You observe there are no cars coming, then you cross.
The difference between evolution and creation is this: evolution will change it's conclusions when new facts are presented. Biblical creation will not change as new facts become available because...uh...the Bible says! Don't question, you peon!

Freaking awesome answer! I'm so glad some people have the brains to understand the differences and reasons between the two concepts! Thank you for an explanation that even a grade school student should be able to understand.
Lela, excellent comment. I fully agree with what you wrote.
Thank you, feenix :-)
I second that. Evolution was in fact creation. The two components aren't mutually exclusive.
Evolution is the STUDY of life. It's a scientific method, not a "thing". It is not creation itself which no one knows the definitive answer to. Creationism is a "belief", not a study. You can state that it is fact, but that doesn't make it so.
