RE: Creationism VS. Evolution

At least from a theological perspective, both creationism and evolution present a different view on the problem of evil.

For creationism, it’s hard to understand how humans can be evil if we were created perfectly by God to be moral creatures. Free will is irrelevant, because we were *made* to be good. being made by God, it follows that we will behave exactly as He intended.

For evolution, we can see that evil is just a misapplication of survival behaviors. Earlier in our evolution they were required for survival, but as a moral species, they are not only unnecessary, but also evil. Evolution itself tends to be value-neutral and nonlinear, but in a theistic sense, a demand for the survival of our ancestors has set us up for moral failure.
