And The Great Debate roars on. In view of the large numbers of pages dealing with the
conflict between Science and Creationism, it seems only reasonable to take them out of the
Opinions page and give this topic a page of its own.

SITES OF SCIENCE AND SKEPTICISM
|SOME CREATIONIST IGNORAMI|
In this section, we start off with some geological history, briefly seeing how the science
developed. These are followed by some studies of The Grand Canyon, and how badly Creationist
"Flood Geology" accounts for what is there; it won't take too many of these pages to convince
you that a geologist who accepts the creationist position is on the same intellectual level
as a dentist who believes in the Tooth Fairy!

Both parts are written from a Christian perspective. He reports the attitudes of "conservatives" but maintains a neutral attitude, refusing to get into the debate. (In the past the word "Conservative" represented a very intellectually respectable viewpoint, but recently the term has been hijacked by people who are not really conservative but merely reactionary and it has become much uglier. More recently still the term "social conservative" has become popular; a less euphemistic word for this sort of person could be "bigot".)

Young-Earth Creationists seem to have a little trouble getting their act together.
In Creation & its Critics, Henry Morris,
a founder of modern "scientific" creationism and and President of ICR (Institute for Creation
Research, in 1982, wrote:
"Scientific Creationism is not based on Genesis or any other religious teaching. One can
present the scientific evidences (sic) for creation (and against evolution) without referring at
all to the Bible or to any type of religion."
This is more than a little disingenuous, given that the same author has also produced such
epic works as The Bible is a Textbook of
Science (1964) and A Creationist's
Defence of the King James Bible (1996). Furthermore, a reading of the ICR
Tenets page will show you that they start
with the assumption that the Bible is divinely inspired and quite infallible.
(And the fact remains that, were it not for the Noachian Flood being in the Bible, creationists would not be engaging themselves in the ludicrously hopeless task of trying to fit forty five hundred million years of geological history into one tiny little year-long flood. It's like trying to fit a mountain into a molehill.)
Douane Gish, a leading spokesman, debater and senior Vice-president of ICR, wrote, in The Moon Creation and Composition: The Apollo Missions (1994):
"Creation scientists, based on the clear and unequivocal statements in the Word of God, and firmly supported by well-established natural laws and the failure of all theories on the evolutionary origin of the universe, accept the supernatural, special creation of the universe, which, of course, includes the origin of the solar system with its earth and moon.......(bible quotes)...Thus, using special processes operating nowhere in the natural universe today, God created all the heavenly bodies, including the earth, the moon, the sun, and all the other objects in the solar system. Furthermore, Scripture makes clear that at the close of the sixth day of creation God had finished the work of creating the universe—the heavens and the earth for He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made."
It should also be noted that ICR describes itself, not as a scientific research organisation,
but as a "Christ-focused Creation Ministry.
So here, for your edification, are a number of creationist sites. Some from leaders in the movement, and some from various members of that vast army of devout ignorami that has gathered about them.

In the introduction to the Creationist pages above I mentioned the army of devout ignorami
that has gathered around the creationist standard in the belief that they are thereby
serving their God. One of their common attributes is arrogance: an arrogance due to the
certainty that they are right and that all "evolutionists" are absolutely and irremediably
wrong. Another common attribute is their devotion to old creationist sources for their
mis-information. Hence they all tend to regurgitate the same old stuff that has long been
shown to be wrong.
I wouldn't have thought that the recycling of old lies was of any service to any God.
EVOLUTION vs CREATIONISM
An appalling idiocy!. This is a long article that is full of half-truths and outright falsehoods: (The author writes that it is a problem in science that new discoveries cause new theories to supplant old ones!) A useful exercise might be to read it and count up how many stupidities you can find. I've already done my bit!
NOAH'S FLOOD: AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
Collection of Essays. A notable display of ignorance of the many scientific topics upon which the author dwells.
In a series of pages starting with, of course :-), the 2nd. Law of Thermodynamics, the author exhibits a level of scientific knowledge that could at best be termed "Primitive Creationist".
One of the most arrogant, this author has produced an enormous book on the errors of Evol. the first of which is that there are no absolute proofs of evolution! Ten years he's been researching the subject and he still doesn't know that, outside of mathematics, there's no such thing as 'absolute proof' in science. (sigh!)
DRIFT AND TECTONICS
A hilariously infantile account of the "flaws" of tectonic plate theory. Part of a "Creation-Evolution Encyclopedia" which is mostly a product of extensive quote-mining.
SCIENCE AGAINST EVOLUTION
Some pages are just silly; others, like this one, resort to outright falsehood as well. One quote from the front page of this site: "The old ages for the Earth come primarily from the ages of rocks, which are dated by the presumed ages of the fossils in them. Radioactive measurements of rocks are based on assumptions that were chosen to make the radioactive measurements agree with the presumed ages of the fossils." I challenged the author on this point but, not surprisingly, have never had a reply.
