Creation " Science"?

Do you think Creation Science is true science or is it religion hiding behind science? Real science starts with a question and tries to find an answer. Creation science starts with an answer and than tries to find a question that fits the answer. How can anyone call this a science?

Both Creation Science and evolution start with pre-conceived ideas and then try to find evidence to their model. Evolution routinely disregards any evidence that doesn't fit their model. Evolution tells us that everything has evolved. Yet they say they haven't found the evolutionary process of everything. So by your own definition of what a true science is, evolution would have to be discarded for this reason alone. Evolution is definitely a religion mixed in with a little science.

Your statement is not true. Evolution is not a religion! Any scientist that started with a preconceived notion and then was willing to bend the facts to prove his conclusion would be drummed out of his profession. This bending of facts is exactly what Creation "Science" does. Further information on this can be found at; http://tinyurl.com/232dj5

"It is therefore of immediate concern to both biologist and lawman that Darwin is under attack. The theory of life that undermined nineteenth century religion has virtually become a religion itself and in turn is being threatened by fresh ideas. The attacks are certainly not limited to those of the creationists and religious fundamentalists who deny Darwinism for political and moral reasons. The main thrust of the criticism comes from within science itself. The doubts about Darwinism represent a political revolt from within rather than a siege from without." - B. Leith, The Decent of Darwin: A handbook of Doubts about Darwinism (1982) p. 11 "In fact, evolution became in a sense a scientific religion; almost all scientists have accepted it and many are prepared to bend their observations to fit in with it." H. Lipson, "A Physicist Looks at Evolution," Physics Bulletin,31 (1980), p. 138 - Michael Crichton: I studied anthropology in college. and one of the things that certain human structures always reappear. They can't be eliminated from society. One of those structures is religion. Today it is said we live in a secular society in which many people - the best people, the most enlightened people - do not believe in any religion. But I think you cannot eliminate religion from the psyche of mankind. If you suppress it in one form, it merely re-emerges in another form. You can "not" believe in God, but still have to believe in something that gives meaning to your life, and shapes your sense of the world. Such a belief is religious. - Environmentalism as a Religion September 23, 2003

Two references from the early eighties and one that is totally off topic. Your creditability is wearing thin.

Religious statement by a professor of molecular biology: "We know darn well that macro - evolution is taking place on other grounds that I don't have time to talk about but we are in fact completely incapable of proving it."

What professor and in what context?

Science is just catching up with what the Bible says. For many centuries people used to think that the world is flat, although, the Bible has been saying all along that the world is round. Only during the time of Galileo that science discovered that the world is round. LOL!

Untrue! Please go back and read your Bible. It states that the earth is flat, unmoving and the centre of the universe. They almost killed Galileo for saying it wasn't. This will tell you where to look in the Bible. http://tinyurl.com/z2s6s

Chiang, since you already know this to be the case, can you point out for us where in the Bible it teaches that the world is flat? Are modern meteorologists unaware that the sun doesn't actually rise in the east and set in the west or are they speaking with regards to how it appears to us living on Earth?

Interesting. Could you give us the book, chapter and verse in the Bible where it states that the earth is flat?

in their desire to find evidence of "ape-men," some scientists have been taken in by outright fraud,for example, the piltdown man in 1912.for about 40 years it was accepted as genuine by most of the evolutionary community.finally,in 1953, the hoax was uncovered when modern techniques revealed that human and ape bones had been put together and artificially aged. in another instance, an apelike "missing link" was drawn up and presented in the press.but it was later acknowledged that the "evidence" consisted of only one tooth that belonged to an extinct form of pig.

What does any of this have to do with the fact that Creation "Science" is not a science but religion pretending to be science. The fossil record contains many specimens of hominids that are not fake but setting that aside the Human Genome Project and the resulting science of comparative genomics has pretty much settled the fact that evolution has happened and is happening. Any doubt there was is gone.

More empty assertions! How has the Genome Project accomplished this?

As a result of the Human Genome Project the science of comparative genomics has developed. Comparative genomics has provided clear evidence of the process of evolution.

hm i think science and religion is each other supporting, so creation science is still science and it's not big problem with religion

Creation is pseudoscience. It has no resemblance to true science.

It is my opinion that Creation Theories are embellished upon and inadequately "upheld" by those who are inherently insecure and fearful of reality. Everything has evolved, including religion. For some, it is much easier to remain stuck in thoughts of fantasy requiring no exertion of intelligence, or potential change. When we, as humans, further evolve we will move past the prehistoric mythology of gods and religions to find the unity and truths we have been seeking all along - but which has so far escaped us BECAUSE of our quests for understanding and BECAUSE of our varying man-made religions. I think that as our minds evolve, free of the constraints of brainwashing and blind "faith", scientific advances in microbiology and molecular biology will also evolve - along with the level of intelligence, unity, and understanding achieved by the human race.

I feel that it is religion trying to claim to be science.
