Scientific creationism is a branch of creationism that aims (or aimed, since it seems to have fallen out of favor) at being perceived as being a bona fide scientific theory. The claim is that true science supports Genesis, and while the natural way to teach this is by specifically citing the Bible, it can also be done without mentioning the Christian god by name. This latter approach was dubbed "scientific creationism".

Like Intelligent Design, scientific creationism is a direct reaction to court cases in the United States that had ruled that teaching creationism in public schools was a violation of the Establishment clause of the First amendment.
