Creation Science Fiction™

Exposing The Lies One Layer At A Time

Can Creationists Do Real Science?

Can Creationists become scientists? Of course they can, in fact I've never heard anyone say they can't. What people are actually saying is that "Creation Science" isn't science. I've said that myself and had creationists come back with "Isaac Newton was a creationist and a scientist" or start to list of names of people who are Christian and also scientists.  They are just reacting without listening to what was really said.

Creation Science Isn't Science!

What is Creation Science? It is defined as:

"the interpretation of scientific knowledge in accord with belief in the literal truth of the Bible, especially regarding the creation of matter, life, and humankind in six days."

How is Science defined?

"the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment."

If science is the study of the physical and natural world, then scientists cannot assign a supernatural deity who doesn't reside in the physical and natural world as a creator or the cause of anything. It goes against the very meaning of the term Scientific. 

Creation Scientists, they really shouldn't be called scientists in any way, shape, or form, readily admit they start with the Bible and reject evidence that does not fit a literal interpretation of Genesis.  Sometimes you might hear me use the term "Creation Scientific" as a poke at those who teach the earth is 6,000 years old and people rode dinosaurs. That's because they are obviously ignoring facts and evidence that goes against their biblical worldview.

So yes, creationists can do real science, but if you grow up being taught the Universe is 6,000 years old you may not want to go into geology, cosmology, archaeology, paleontology, or other related fields. You won't be able to pass the classes needed if you adhere strictly to young earth creationism. If you reject evolution you shouldn't try to get a degree in biology or medical fields like immunology either.  

 

“Evolution, a fact rather than mere hypothesis, is the central unifying concept in biology. By extension it affects almost all other fields of knowledge and thought and must be considered one of the most influential concepts in Western thought.”

DOUGLAS J. FUTUYMA,  Evolutionary Biology, 1979

 

“For a biologist the alternative to thinking in evolutionary terms is not to think at all.”

PETER MEDAWAR,  Biologist  For his works in immunology he is regarded as the "father of transplantation".
