This presentation will highlight and explain the difference between the Netherlands and Belgium in regards to the popularity of creationism. In the former country, creationism has been popular for decades in orthodox Protestant and evangelical circles and has fueled intense debates in conservative Protestant churches. In Belgium however creationism has never been able to make inroads.
