  •  Again, not "creationism" (0+ / 0-)

    "Creationism" is pseudo-science. It's not the same as a belief in a creation story.

    •  What would you call the theory of creation (0+ / 0-)

      ... if not "creationism"?

      Is there another word for that?

      "Divine creation" is two words.

      "Intelligent Design" is too modern.

      The term creationism dates back to 1847. The word wasn't used to oppose Darwin's theories until 1880.

      Is it not the best single word to describe the myth of supernatural creation?

        "Of which the Biblical story in Genesis is probably the best known today and was the best known in the West, but there are many others."
