A person starts an organization; publishes a magazine he calls a ‘journal’; then pretends that the articles written in it are ‘scientific’.
I think we’ve heard that before somewhere. What was he called again? Oh, yeah. Henry Morris.
Creationism is very detrimental to society. Everywhere.
As far as I can remember, a statement signed by those American Scientific Nobel Laureates a few years ago read something like this:
Teaching religious ideas mislabeled as science is detrimental to scientific education: It sets up a false conflict between science and religion, misleads our youth about the nature of scientific inquiry, and thereby compromises our ability to respond to the problems of an increasingly technological world. Our capacity to cope with problems of food production, health care, and even national defense will be jeopardized if we deliberately strip our citizens of the power to distinguish between the phenomena of nature and supernatural articles of faith. "Creation-science" simply has no place in the public-school science classroom.
A person called Faith is a prime example of why creationism is detrimental to the whole world. Faith doesn't even know how to start figuring out what a reliable source is.
Thanks for mentioning holocaust deniers. After your post I did a search or two on them on the interwebs ; if I were a creationist I would have named it scientific research.
I really, really didn't know that they were so well-organised and well-funded. I didn't know about the 'Institute for Historical Review' or anything such as that before. It makes me sick.
What also got me was that some of the most prominant holocaust deniers also feature constantly on creationist websites. After considering it for a while, I must admit that I'm not too surprised at all.
And they want to teach the controvercy. They rather should go and get lost or hang/gas themselves or something similar to that.
I learn something new on this forum every day. That's why it's such a great forum.
