Creationism: May, 2010. A scientist inserted synthetic DNA into a cell and the cell with this synthetic DNA was capable of self-replicating. A step toward humans creating life. See May 24, 2010 publication by the Venter Institute. (Google "synthetic DNA").

Try looking here for examples to your teacher's question:

www.anchorstone.com

This site has evidence to many of the stories of the Bible, but I haven't looked for any regarding creation.  There is a a search button, so type in "creation" and see what it brings up for you. 

Good Luck!

Tell your teacher that you deserve the marks because you know it is an unanswerable question--that questions of creation are religious questions, which belong in the context of religion. They have nothing to do with science, which concerns testable theories. Creation "theories" are by definition untestable because they are based on faith, not fact.

Unless you are going to a church school, I think your teacher is giving you a trick question or trying to make a point.  Mainstream scientists do not believe in creationism and do not think that there is any evidence to support creationism.

If you are at a church school, your teacher may believe things on this link http://bestbiblescience.com/top.htm

Alternately, go and Google "creation science" and find your own.

Sorry, but you're not going to get those marks. Your teacher is offering you a wild goose chase to teach you the value of judging objectively.

There is no evidence that proves creationism. All the facts/evidence/proof support evolution and disprove creationism.

Teacher distributing liberal grades to prove something cannot make a wrong thing right. Fact is that creationism was an explanation of creation of the world advanced long long back when the scientific knowledge was quite limited. To that the creationism is quite inadequate and to some extent incorrect description of the process of creation of this world.

It is not only creationism which is replaced by more advanced knowledge of science. This can happen to all kind of scientific knowledge. For example, Sir Issac Newton, one of the greatest scientist of all times, believed that light always travels in straight line, but now it has been established that light gets bent by gravitational force.
