Re: You are Not Even Bothering to Play
Abiogenesis is quite imaginative and is not falsifiable. The envioronment is unknown, the chemical reactions are unknown, and the organization of the chemical is unknown. It is quite interesting, but not science, and should therefore be removed from the classrooms.

You want abiogenesis to be removed from the classrooms, and most creationists want the theory of evolution removed as well.

What else do you want removed? Geology (all those old strata)? Paleontology (all those old fossils)? Genetics (evidence for common descent)? All forms of radiometric dating (those dates are toooooo old!)? Archaeology and soil sciences (can't find evidence for a global flood)? Biology (too close to evolution)? Linguistics (does not provide evidence for Babel)?

The schools would be a pretty lonely place if we listened to creationists before setting the curricula, eh?


Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Re: Pigs flying over China!
There is actually more evidence for pigs flying over China than there is for most creationist claims:

    --pigs are known to exist,
    --a lot of different things fly; and
    --China is known to exist

The same can't be said for most creationist claims.
