I move that the topic be closed.

Re: The Angry Astronomer speaks
Part of Chiroptera's quote from the Angry Astronomer (the fine print being the quoted creationist, the regular print being the AA):

Evolutionists claim that stars form from swirling clouds of dust and gas. For this to happen, vast amounts of energy, angular momentum, and residual magnetism must be removed from each cloud. This is not observed today, and astronomers and physicists have been unable to explain, in an experimentally verifiable way, how it could happen.

First off, evolution and cosmology are two distinct fields and are wholly unrelated. Their conflation of the two does not impress me.

My "bolding".

From the second paragraph of the cited article:

The Angry Astronomer writes:

However, during the course of it, I pointed out the similarity of our understanding of common descent to the understanding of stellar evolution within my own field.

Again, my "bolding".

The creationist perspective may indeed be totally bogus, but I can't fault the use of the term "evolutionists" (see my "signature"). I guess the AA is miffed that they didn't use the term "stellar evolutionists". Not a graceful was for the AA to start his article.
