the argument for Creationism

A 2012 Gallup poll interviewed a random sample of 1,012 American adults, aged 18 and older. …

Forty six percent Americans believed in creationism, 32 percent believed in theistic evolution and 15 percent believed in evolution without any divine intervention. …

As an Agnostic, I believe creationism is wrong. Flabbergasted that so many thinking adults could overlook the inconsistencies between what their eyes see and the possibility that the Earth is only something less than 10,000yrs-old

Of the 2016 Republican candidates for President, so far, Huckabee, Perry, Santorum and Ben Carson are creationists. None of the others will admit they believe in evolution. They try to duck the issue often claiming: “I’m not a scientist.”

The GOP is an anti-science Party. 😦

One thought on “the argument for Creationism”

  1. Sorry you can’t say things like “I believe in evolutionism”, or “I believe creationism is wrong” !
    Evolution is not a hypothesis, it is not a religion, it is not a dogma, it is a fact that been proved without a doubt since 100 years, end of the story. Scientists are not working to understand if it works, but how it works.
    And if creationists don’t agree, then they can publish their studies in serious scientific magazines… which they never did.

    By saying that you “believe in evolutionism”, you put creationism (which is in fact a dangerous obscurantist sect) and superstition at the same level as science, and you are playing the creationists’ game, which is trying to make people think that their believes would be as relevant as all scientific proofs.

    Don’t “believe”, just assess the facts using intelligence and logic, not heart and feelings, and conclude by yourself who deserves to be trusted : people who believe in talking snakes and use fear of a god to control and oppress populations since thousands of years, or people who develop science to heal and to explore the Universe.
