Of course evolution plays a major role in both evolutionary biology and creationism. The common definition used for evolution is, “evolution is the process of change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms from one generation to the next. ” One way evolution plays a major role in evolutionary biology is because the many scientists in the fields of evolutionary biology use the organisms from their field to answer general questions of evolution.
Evolution plays a major role in creationism because creationism is all about how God created everything such as humanity, the Earth, the sun, and universe. Evolution is how the process of change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms from one generation to the next, and God created everything in creationism, which affected everything from past generations, and still affects change to this generation. In evolution, mutations; which are said to be “changes to the nucleotide sequence of the genetic material of an organism” can produce new or altered traits in individuals in genes.
A gene is usually defined to be a region of DNA that controls a hereditary characteristic. Natural selection is also known to be, “a process by which heritable traits that are helpful for survival and reproduction while harmful traits become rarer. ” Natural selection usually happens when a person with a more advantage with their traits are more likely to reproduce successfully, so more people in the next generation inherit the traits.
I personally believe that without Creationism there would be no such thing as evolution. I believe that there would be nothing without creationism, because as said in the definition; “Creationism is a religious belief that humanity, life, the earth, and the universe were created by God. ” If I had to choose between creationism and evolution, I would definitely choose creationism because like I said before; I believe that there would be nothing if god did not create all of the beautiful things he created.
