Re: there is no culture of truth or honesty in Creationism.
Seriously? Every single one of them?
I heard Neil deGrasse Tyson say that 15% of top ToE scienctists in the highest academy or something are creos.

Nope. Once again, creationists bending the truth or creating outright falsehoods to push forth their agenda.

This was Tyson's actual quote:

quote:
“I want to put on the table, not why 85% of the members of the National Academy of Sciences reject God, I want to know why 15% of the National Academy don’t.”

https://www.goodreads.com/...-to-put-on-the-table-not-why-85

He was referring to the fact that 15% of the members of the National Academy of Sciences believe in god. He did NOT say they are creationists. Belief in god is not a belief in creationism. There are several members of this board (RAZD, Percy, Cat Scientist) who believe in god but do not believe in creationism.

By the way, that internet search for Tyson's quote took me all of ten seconds. Please try to do better before you spew nonsense.
