im creationist for several reasons
for a start i have found several, i guess you could say, holes in the theory of evolution
the first cell, when it "evolved" why would it bother to evolve any more, its the top dog, wouldnt it just sit there completely content w/ being the only living thing on earth?
this one is a little amusing
lets take the example of a giraffe, so it starts out sorta like a horse, it decides it needs a long neck to eat the food at the top of the tree.
so it starts growing a long neck. it finally gets its long neck and reaches up to get some food and passes out cuz it cant get blood to its head (dead)
so then it starts to evolve a strong muscles to push the blood to its head. its gets the muscles and the long neck.
now it can eat from the top of the tree, when it reaches down to get a drink, the blood rushes to its head and its head explodes (dead)
then afters its been extinct twice then it knows it needs a long neck, strong muscles to get the blood up there, and a sponge like tissue to soak up blood when its getting a drink
its the whole thing of "irreducible complexity" where if you take out one part of a system (in this case a giraffe) then it wont work
this applies to a cell too. if you took out a part of a cell then they wouldnt work anymore.
darwin (the inventor of evolution) said that if a cell cant be reduced then my theory wont work
(he came up w/ his theory before we really knew much of anything about cells, i believe at the time the were just thought to be little blobs, which they arent)
now the whole theory of natural selection, i do believe in (its not actually a set part of evolution, but it does work in w/ the whole theory)
in my freshman biology class we studied about how when the grand canyon was formed a group of rodents live in the area and was separated by the chasm. over time they each adapted to there different environments and even became different colors
lol, sorry that took so much space and all but i hope it helped
feel free to ask me stuff if you would like, i cant promise that ill have the answer but ill do my best to answer the best i can
