Re: dwise1 at "Creationism in science classrooms (an argument for)"
And three days without "rebuttal". On a weekend. Reminds me of a letter to the editor I once wrote about a long string of letters about public school prayer and the posting of the Ten Commandments. Completely killed all such letters for the next few years.

Re: dwise1 at "Creationism in science classrooms (an argument for)"
Some context is forthcoming. I became an atheist circa 1963 when I started reading the Bible from start to finish and didn't even make it through half of Genesis. Remained an atheist from then on. Around 1970, I first heard of "creation science" and the only two examples of claims offered -- living fresh-water mollusc shells found to be thousands of years old and a NASA computer running moon-position calculations back through time having found "Joshua's Lost Day" -- told me in uncertain terms that fundamentalist Christian creationist claims were pure and utter bullshit. 11 years later, circa 1981, a creationist presentation came 'round to the local university (an ICR Duane Gish presentation that I couldn't attend due to the duty roster) told me that creationists were still around and there might be something to their claims. But further research showed that they were just lying.
