Creationism is the fundamentalist Christian belief that all life in its current form was created by God. Some Creationists say that the universe and everything in it was created in 6 days, as is written in the Genesis book of the Christian Bible. These 6 days have been interpreted as meaning literally 6 days in some cases to 6000 years in others. Creationism rejects Darwinian evolution as an explanation for the origin of life.
