What is Creation Science?
Creation science attempts to give scientific evidence for a young earth and a six-day creation event of the earth, the solar system, in addition to the universe. This creation event occurred about 6,000 years ago, according to the Book of Genesis and the Biblical scriptures and creation science attempts to give evidence for this creation event. In the creationist model, the earth, life on earth, the planets, and the stars were created in six days in mature form and therefore did not "evolve" or emerge gradually over long periods of time. Creation science also attempts to prove that the Earth and universe are young by describing catastrophic processes that have shaped our Earth and universe and describing the formation of the geological landscape observed today in terms of the 6,000-year timescale. The Genesis Flood, the global flood which covered the whole earth 4,300 to 4,500 years ago according to the Book of Genesis, is also believed to have created much of the sedimentary rock layers and geologic features we see on earth today. In addition, the Genesis Flood is believed to have completely reshaped the Earth's landscape by erosion and deposition of sediment, in addition to creating the tallest mountain peaks we see today. The Flood lasted about 12 months, according to the Book of Genesis and creationists believe a major ice age occurred shortly after the Flood.
