For Against
For every intricate creation, there is a creator. We are simply too wonderful to have evolved by chance.

If "creationism" means a refutation of the theory of evolution, I'm against it. And I think most creationists in this vein **who bother to educate themselves about evolution** (not just agreeing with "creationists") will agree that the theory and its evidence make sense. But the good news for people who merely think of creationism as "G-d created the universe": I think they can happily agree with both creationism and evolution: G-d is or created whatever preceded or began that which evolved.

There is simply no compelling evidence for creationism, intelligent design, or whatever term will be coined in the future to try to force god into schools' science curricula. To say that "we are simply too wonderful to have evolved by chance" is an example of the Appeal to Ignorance. You can't imagine how humanity could possibly have come about any other way, so it must have been your imaginary friend in the sky. The first thing you would have to do is show that evolution could not be true. But the more time that goes by the more evidence is found to support evolution. And where is the definition of a "too wonderful" human body to be found? Even if the human body were perfect, this would not be proof of a creator. It would simply show that nature, over the course of 3.5 billion years, developed a pretty good organism. But there are plenty of design flaws with the human body, including the partial shared pathway our air and food go through, the backward wiring of humans' eyes, and the presence of that great useless organ--the appendix. If you've ever chocked on a piece of food, you should question "intelligent" design.
