Which do you believe in or which seems most logical?

Darwinism Basically, as many of you will know, the Theory of Evolution set out by Darwin in the origin of species. This theory is 'survival of the fittest'.

Creationism This is that the world and its inhabitents were created by God in a week, 6000 years ago, as described by Genesis. Things such as dinosaur bones are dismissed as fakes intended to mislead the faithful.

Intelligent Design Theory An interesting and less main-stream belief, that evolution is correct, however it challenges the things which are not explained by Darwinism and believe in an 'intelligent designer', which need not be God, it could be hyperintelligent aliens.

Your Poll is leading, and thus void.

What would be a better way of listing them? There was no real order in my head, I simply listed them as I had written about them in the text, and that was in the order of which ever came into my mind first, so it was truly random!

Creationism isn't the popular held belief of many Christians anymore. Educated religious people understand that it is a metaphor rather than reality.

The book by Richard Dawkins which suggests we are genetically incapable of altruism and that the human species has a 'selfish gene' is an interesting one. It explains that humans were not genetically programmed to act for the good of the group, more so for the individual.

Maybe because we'd feel guilty if we didn't feel sorry for certain people, and selfish people would rather suffer sorrow than guilt
