Evolution vs. Creationism


Man from apes?
Garden of Eden?
Where did humans come from?
These questions have boggled people for years.
There are two theories about the origin of man:
Evolution (Scientific Theory) and Creationism (Religious Theory)

I. INTRODUCTION

The School Board is trying to decide which theory should be taught in schools. Each theory has its own pros and cons and needs to be evaluated before a decision can be made. A debate will be taking place at the next School Board meeting to help decide which theory will be taught in schools.
