Creationism is the religious belief that the universe and life originated "from specific acts of divine creation", as opposed to through natural processes, such as evolution.
Now, I see a dichotomous problem here within this definition. The problem with this definition which is also a pretty accurate reflection of many of the beliefs that are shared by numerous people in some parts of the world is that it implies evolution and creationism both defy one another which in fact they don't. Creationism is a matter of faith and evolution is the study of the progression of living organisms.
Furthermore, evolution hasn't yet told us about the initiation of life and universe; if had there would be no need for other branches of science such as theoretical physics for example. By the same token, creationism, which relates to a matter of faith doesn't tell us anything about the origin of life and the universe either; hence it's a matter of faith.
So to conclude, one can still accept evolution and still believe in either a religious divine or intelligent design that initiated the processes that relate to evolution. Likewise, one can still be an evolutionary biologist and still be a faithful person. I do not see any reason as to why the two cannot currently co-exist.
Now I would like to ask your views and I look forward to some rebuttals if any (the fun part).
