Creationism and those who push it

by

I try not to hate.  Usually, it is pretty easy.  But I HATE creationism!

And it is hard not hating those who advocate it and try to claim evolutionary science isn’t science, or that all science is government driven.

It isn’t “faith” to do science- it isn’t “faith” to accept what science discovers. Science is a method for discovering what is real- for discerning between reality and wishful thinking.  

I can pick up a rock and observe that it is a rock, rather than, say, a hunk of plastic.  I can then study it more closely and discover what kind of rock it is- whether it is natural or artificial (concrete), sedimentary or metamorphic, etc.  It doesn’t take “faith” to see that it is a rock of a particular type.

Creationists desperately want to insist that everything is as delusional and as subjective as their faith.  It isn’t.

It is what it is, whether you accept it or not.  Just like coercion and theft are wrong, whether you accept it or not.

You can keep taunting that you want to “see evidence” and then pretending none was presented when it is placed under your nose.  You can keep changing your requirements for evidence; keep asking for your “missing links”, or keep claiming evolution is a wild guess (the creationist definition of “theory”).  You can keep ignoring or denying the genetic evidence and claiming it doesn’t mean what it means.

All this just makes you look like an idiot.

You can say, in response to my pointing out creationist lies concerning their credentials, resent history, genetics, geology, fossils, evolutionary science, and so forth, that you caught “evolutionists lying and telling half truths” so you reject evolution.  But when asked for examples of these “lies” and “half truths” you simply repeat some creationist BS from one of those creationism evangelists- stuff they made up that actually only proves MY point about their willingness to lie about anything to try to score a point (fool YOU) for their cause.  If you respond at all, that is.  Scientists are human.  They all lie sometimes.  If they use evolution as justification for the State, they are lying.  Truth can’t justify lies.  But this isn’t the kind of lies that would invalidate the science- it only shows the human bias.

When pressed- or scared– you can even then smugly assert that you are “not a Christian” or “not a creationist”- but that you have “questions”.  Feel the need to wiggle?

Sorry.  You lose.
