I would like to make a list of the *three* strongest arguments from a evolutionist and the same for a creationist as to why each thinks his/her point of view is correct about how life forms came into being and are the variety we see now.

I am going to go against the grain of my fellow evolutionists and say I disagree with many of the points. To start with in an attempt to give 3
points to each you would need to start with the topic of how life stated prior to the debate between evolution and creation of different forms of life. The point on the scientific side would entail a discussion of hypotheses of abiogenesis (life from non life chemicals) and panspermia (life from other places in the universe) and compare this with your creation story of the same issue. then you could show 3 things from Evolution & Creation and compare them.

PS I hope you come back whenever you have the time. I was never a teacher in the traditional sense but I was an instructor in the Army and know where you are coming from in regards to time

Since Evolution is only ~90% correct it should be thrown out and replaced by Creation which has even a lower % of correctness. W T Young, 2008

Re: Do not mix science and religion
Scientists know that life became prolific during the cambrian period, fully formed and in great variety.

prolific, yes, but the diversity occured long before the Cambrian. The ancestor of protostomes (such as Arthropods, Tardigrates, Barachiozoa, Mollusca etc.) and deuterostomes (such as Chordates & Ecinoderms) separated back in the Pre-Cambrian. (The Ancestor's Tale, Richard Dawkins, pg378.) The Cambrian Lasted 54 million years and these changes occured over the entire period not all at once.
