Creationism versus evolution

The continuing controversy over which version of creation should be taught in public schools again brings two views to public attention. What is the Christian Scientist's position? Does he choose sides between creationism and evolution? Or does he see this controversy as simply discussing two different aspects of essentially one view?

Actually, the first chapter of Genesis sets forth a radically spiritual concept of creation—a description the Christian Scientist accepts as reality. The second chapter presents a material view. Both creationism and evolution are consistent with the mistaken assumption implied by the second account—the belief that substance and life can develop in matter.
