Re: Let Creationists Be Creationists
I have no idea why AdminPD has labelled Buz's post as off-topic, it looks entirely on topic to me.
I'm saying, give effective creationists some leeway. Let them debate CREATIONISM. Don't expect a Biblical creationist to think or debate the secularist science methodology. What sense does that make?
I think Buz has unintentionally hit the nail firmly on the head here. Creationists don't understand their arguments because Creation Science is, and always has been, bullshit. Creationists don't know the science, they aren't convinced by the science, and so they don't understand the science of their arguments. Often even the logic escapes them. Why? Because they don't care about it. As Buz says it isn't, for the Creationist about the science, it's about the belief and the religion. The arguments are just dressing on the cake.
