Response Article
This article (Creationism and evolution are the only 2 models (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CA510:

Creation and evolution are the only two models of origins.

Source: Morris, Henry M. 1985. Scientific Creationism. Green Forest, AR: Master Books, pp. 3, 8-10.

CreationWiki response:

The author of Talk.Origins misunderstands what is meant by this. Henry Morris means that there are only two options: either an all-powerful God created the universe and everything in it, or the universe occurred naturally. He is not saying that young-earth creationism and biological evolution are the only two models, which is the way Talk.Origins understands it.

This argument was used in the famous Warren-Flew debate of 1976 at the North Texas State University in Denton, TX. In the debate, Dr. Thomas B. Warren stated the argument that either Creation is true or Evolution is true since he (Dr. Warren) was a Creationist and Dr. Antony G. N. Flew, his opponent, was an Evolutionist. Dr. Warren stated that if Dr. Flew wished to give up Evolution in favor of some other model then they could end that debate then and there and set up a new one concerning Creation vs. Whatever.

Should Evolutionists wish to argue in favor of some model other than Evolution, they should feel free to abandon Evolution in favor of that other argument. We, on the other hand, stand firmly behind the model of Creation.
