    As a creationist, YEC, OEC, ID proponent, guided evolution proponent, how do you imagine "creation" of species happens?
    Is there a bearded man materializing from thin air and going to work on some clay? Do new species poof into existence? What exactly are the steps from a world without a given species to a world with that species?

    I do not think any human being can answer your question, I can't anyway because I do not know how God created our universe

    That is a mystery to science also. But this is not about the universe, just about species. Science's explanation is simply that every living being (except the first) is a descendent from the first living being. We call that process evolution. (And I think you agree to that, don't you?)
    But what is the alternative to evolution?

    I can only answer for me, but I believe Hod created everything and made the evolution as a part of it.

    Do you want to know, I mean if I believed in a god I cannot imagine that god did it would be a satisfactory answer for me, I would want to know how god did it.

    My two cents, I don't think they have any. God seems to be a placeholder for what they don't know. If "only god" can answer its avoiding thinking about the answer because of the authority of god.

    I don't believe it's a guy in the sky as a general creationalism belief. God of the gaps.

    To be fair, @Heyo quite wisely asked "how do you imagine". Not what you know. It is, in my opinion, a very good question.

    For those that believe in a Theistic view of Creation and the harmony of science and religion like the Baha'is the mechanisms of Creation are Natural Laws and natural processes. Science is simply our perception of the nature of our physical existence nothing less and nothing more.

    Intelligent Design is phony pseudoscience.

    No :) it is not important to me how God created it. I do see each day as a new beginning.

    And how did Brahma do it, I think that is the question the OP is asking.

    Could you expand a little on that? What is the brahma mechanism?

    By creating obedient beings. An atom of hydrogen follows obediently it's nature.

    Quantum creationism from nothing is undoubtedly the only true science that is logically sound. The wavefunction collapses and we have a material atom that flickers into existence. From this, the self-perceptual nature of reality allows the sense organs including consciousness and perception to evolve in living organisms. Self-perception trickles down from ultimate existence.

    So you changed from "goddidit" to "brahmadidit" without explaining anything. The question wasn't "who did it?" but "how was it done?". Do you have an idea about that?

    Do I understand you right that you think a complete living being manifests spontaneously from a wave function?
