While the Koran teaches that Allah created human beings as they appear today, Islamic scholars and followers are divided on the theory of evolution. Theologically conservative Muslims who ascribe to literal interpretations of the Koran generally denounce the evolutionary argument for natural selection, whereas many theologically liberal Muslims believe that while man is divinely created, evolution is not necessarily incompatible with Islamic principles.
While all of the major movements of American Judaism — including the Reconstructionist, Reform, Conservative and Orthodox branches — teach that God is the creator of the universe and all life, Jewish teachings generally do not find an inherent conflict between evolutionary theory and faith.

The purpose remains the innervation of a non-theological discipline as a theological set of fields or as the study of God — to bring God into science and vice versa. Indigenous belief structures in various parts of the world, and in Canada, assert a creation narrative. In C2C Journal , reportage by Robert MacBain and Peter Shawn Taylor covered some of the aspects of bad history on the part of some aboriginal communities due to historical circumstance as a consequence of colonization, they state:.
Today, approximately 30, Ojibways live in a sprawling region north of Lake Huron and Lake Superior. And thanks to a recent Ontario court decision, they could soon be in line for a massive and unprecedented financial gift from Canadian taxpayers. They originated on the Atlantic Coast and are essentially newcomers to the area, having arrived after European explorers.
MacBain and Taylor firmly judge the captivation of Justice Hennessy with indigenous creationism, akin to the notion of a several thousand years old Earth with human beings as a special creation in their current form and separate from the rest of creation Ibid. Bailey notes the asymmetry in the treatment of different types of creationism, where indigenous creationism gets a pass in some circles. However, creationism remains a wrong theory in a scientific sense and only one set of particular religious interpretations of origins of life and, often, the universe.
Canadian Museum of History n. The different Iroquoian-speaking peoples tell slightly different versions of the creation story, which begins with Sky Woman falling from the sky. The Canadian Encyclopedia states: Coast Salish culture and traditional knowledge survive through oral histories.
Wildlife and Animals in Iceland
Although Coast Salish legends vary from nation to nation, they often feature many of the same spiritual figures and tell similar creation stories. One example of such a tale is the story of how Old-Man-In-The-Sky created the world, animals and humans. These stories also highlight the importance of certain creatures and elements of nature, such as the salmon and red cedar, which are considered sacred for spiritual reasons and because of the valuable resources they provide for the people Ibid.

Gently he awoke the Sun Mother. As she opened her eyes a warm ray of light spread out towards the sleeping earth. Go down to the Earth and awake the sleeping spirits. Give them forms. The Sun Mother glided down to Earth, which was bare at the time and began to walk in all directions and everywhere she walked plants grew. After returning to the field where she had begun her work the Mother rested, well pleased with herself. The Father of All Spirits came and saw her work, but instructed her to go into the caves and wake the spirits.
This time she ventured into the dark caves on the mountainsides. The bright light that radiated from her awoke the spirits and after she left insects of all kinds flew out of the caves. The Sun Mother sat down and watched the glorious sight of her insects mingling with her flowers. However once again the Father urged her on. The Mother ventured into a very deep cave, spreading her light around her.

Her heat melted the ice and the rivers and streams of the world were created. Then she created fish and small snakes, lizards and frogs. Next she awoke the spirits of the birds and animals and they burst into the sunshine in a glorious array of colors. She called all her creatures to her and instructed them to enjoy the wealth of the earth and to live peacefully with one another.

Then she rose into the sky and became the sun. Williams College, n. Now, we can see this reflected in others with supernatural intervention or anthropomorphization of the objects of the world, as if the cosmos amounted to one big dramatic play. National Museum of the American Indian describes the Mayan foundational narrative as follows:. When these deities finally created humans out of yellow and white corn who could talk, they were satisfied.
The Twins rose into the heavens, and became the Sun and the Moon. When Kuamachi picked the fruit, it fell and broke open. Water spilled out and flooded the forest. With his powerful thoughts, Kuamachi created a canoe in which he and his grandfather escaped. Along the way they created deadly water animals such as the anaconda, the piranha, and the caiman. They fell into the water and were devoured by the animals.

After they were gnawed and gored into different ragged shapes, the survivors ascended into the sky on a ladder of arrows. There the stars took their proper places and began shining…. Raven, whom Koyukon narratives credit with the creation of human beings, is only one among many powerful entities in the Koyukon world.
He exhibits human weaknesses such as lust and pride, is neither all-knowing nor all-good, and teaches more often by counterexample than by his wisdom…. The creator, Yaperikuli, led the men through this tunnel, and the resulting union of males and females marked the beginning of fertile life and the origin of all species. As Zimmerman noted, the general tenor of the public and educational conversation around creationism continues for a long time and has been extant in the North American landscape for a longer time than even Stephen Jay Gould, who is long dead at this time. Bob Joseph states:.
Most cultures, including Aboriginal cultures, hold creationism as an explanation of how people came to populate the world. If an Aboriginal person were asked their idea of how their ancestors came to live in the Americas the answer would probably include a creation story and not the story of migration across a land bridge.
Take the Gwawaenuk creationism story for example.
