ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis on theological considerations on the theory of creation and evolution. It cites that the debate on the creation-evolution theory can be determined through 20 points of view including the genres on the Bible interpretation, the relationship of the book of Genesis and natural science and Protestant standpoint. It notes that there are two narratives regarding creation on the first chapter of the book of Genesis. It states that historian John Calvin says that scientific research ability is a gift from God. It mentions a statement from scientist Julian Huxley, saying that there is no need and room for the supernatural in the evolutionary pattern of thought. It asserts that there is no official standpoint on evolution and creation within the Protestant world.
