Creation Model 
Evolution Model
By acts of a Creator.  By naturalistic mechanistic processes due to properties inherent in inanimate matter.
Creation of basic plant and animal kinds with ordinal characteristics complete in first representatives.  Origin of all living things from a single living source which itself arose from inanimate matter. Origin of each kind from an ancestral form by slow gradual change.
Variation and speciation limited within each kind. Unlimited variation. All forms genetically related.
These two models would permit the following predictions to be made concerning the fossil record:
Sudden appearance in great variety of highly complex forms. Gradual change of simplest forms into more and more complex forms.
Sudden appearance of each created kind with ordinal characteristics complete. Sharp boundaries separating major taxonomic groups. No transitional forms between higher categories. Transitional series linking all categories. No systematic gaps.
