Creationism, What is Creativity?July 2, 2021
Creationism or Creationism or Creationism; It is a doctrine that argues that all beings, including plants, animals and humans, were created separately and at once. Creationism is a metaphysical teaching. He argues that all beings in the universe were created separately.
However, this separation is a specific and generic separation, in other words, man as human, horse as horse, linden tree as linden tree, were created in their present form and in a single moment. They have never changed and will not change.
This doctrine was especially defended against evolutionism by the naturalists Karl von Linne (1707-1778) of Sweden and Georges Cuvier (1769-1832) of France. Creativity has all the characteristics of metaphysical thought, such as stasis, immutability, and lack of evolution. According to this teaching, not only beings, but also the universe itself was created out of nothingness.
WHAT IS CREATIVITY?
In general terms, creationism is the trend followed by people who believe in God, who created the earth and heaven from nothing and absolutely, of their own free will. Such a God is generally believed to exist. That is, the existence of a God who is constantly interested in the creatures and who intervenes when necessary is undoubtedly considered.
In Creationism, it is believed that if the creator is not constantly interested in his creations, all that has been created will come to an end or disappear. Christians, Jews, and Muslims are all creationists in this context.
FUNDAMENTAL BELIEFS OF CREATIVITY
A short time has passed since the beginning of everything. A group of creationists believe that 6,000 years have passed since creation.
It is believed that creation was completed in 6 days. The concept of “day” here is certainly debatable.
It is believed that all life, including Homo sapiens, was created miraculously. On this subject, there are debates about whether Adam and Eve were created together, that is, Eve came later to befriend Adam.
After the first creation, a worldwide flood occurred. As a result of this flood, only a limited number of people and animals survived.
It is believed that miraculous events took place, such as the Tower of Babel and the transformation of Lot’s wife into a pillar of salt.
Within this narrow definition, creationists have historically been called fundamentalists or Biblical Literalists, and sometimes Scientific Creationists.
