Creationism is a belief that all life in its current form was created by a god or gods. For example some creationists claim that the universe and everything in it was created in 6 days, as is written in the Genesis book of the Christian bible. Creationism rejects Darwinian evolution as an explanation for the origin of life. It is considered an irrational belief with no basis in science.
