I was looking around for my animal of the day (more on that later) when I came across a website which proceeded to give proof about creationism. Now, I am sure you will have realised by now if you are any kind of reader of my blog, that I am not much for religion. I am quite keen on science and so this whole intelligent design thing has got me quite annoyed. Now, I am not against creationism per se. You can believe that if you want to. You can believe the world is flat, the sky is green, the moon landing was faked (that one I believe!) whatever you want. What I cannot accept is creationism or intelligent design being put forward as a science. Nope, will not accept this. The basic premise of science is that it must be open to scrutiny and constant testing. id therefore not be a science as when it comes down to it, God is the answer. Since we can neither prove nor disprove God, there can be no testing or scrutiny as it comes down to faith. Pure and simple. If you don't want to believe in Evolution, that's fine. Just tell your kids that it's not true. It is not a major part of the science cirricullum, so don't worry about it. The evidence put forward seems plausible when first thought about, but in the end there is only one answer and this is why it is most definitely not a science.
This stupid website, I won't link to it as it's not worth it, talks about rennaissance scientists as though they were the end of science. Not one 20th century or 21st century scientist is mentioned... Anyway, the website talks about the flood. Can someone tell me if Noah put all the New Zealand birds on his boat please? If not, why are they alive? If so, how did they get to NZ? Half of them can't even fly... Did he put our native insects on the boat too?
Sorry for the rant. This is definitely not an attack on religion, just on those who equate creationism with science.
