This is a theory that the Earth and the universe was created by God, and that there is scientific information to justify this concept. This means it will be taught alongside evolutionary theory during science classes. Many believe this to be a mistake that it does not follow the principles of academic  principles of freedom, critical thinking, and good scientific practise. Others however think that evolution is also a belief, so freedom of teaching creationism follows the principles religious freedom.
