Creationism

Anyone who knows me well enough should be able to guess my opinions on creationism, and the teaching of such things in schools as a genuine science.  I know they omit certain facts to fit in with their idea of God and the creation of Earth.  See this –

Carbon-14 dating of carbon buried in the same layer with dragon bones helps to confirm that they are really only thousands of years old. The myth-ions and myth-ions of years never happened; only in the past 200 years has it become fashionable to forget our true ancient history (of thousands of years) in favor of God-hating (or: “bumbling-inherently-weak-god”) evolution. Evolution requires the belief in long epochs of supposed time and chance improvements.

Dragons and sea monsters have become mostly extinct prior to our modern era. By the way, there is evidence that they grew much larger prior to the Great Flood. Just as humans lived much longer (Genesis records ages of some people to have reached over 900 years!) so a reptile … living much longer then could have grown much larger before the Flood – which is indeed what we see in the fossil record of the pre-Flood world.

Humans and lions live on Earth at the same time today.  But we live in different places.  Porpoises will ram sharks that come into their waters.  So naturally then they also live in different places – while living at the same time.  Why couldn’t humans and dinosaurs have lived at the same time?  They’d probably keep mostly separate and then get buried separately if there was a catastrophe, but this could be theoretically possible, correct?  There are at least two places known today with human and dinosaur tracks in the same sedimentary layer: one is in Paluxy, Texas, the other in Eastern Turkmenistan.  Plus we have the legends, from all inhabited continents mind you, which should not be automatically discounted.

This was from a Creationism website.  I do not think I need to comment on the existence of dragons. Paluxy and other footprint trails are disputed by many, and some of the trails are revealing the ‘human’ footprints to possibly be tridactyl, or ‘three – toed’, from some unidentified dinosaur.  And putting faith in legends, well, that’s what religion is all about, yes?

However, when I saw this picture on Facebook, I was ever so slightly mortified to think this is what some American children are being raised to learn –

  1. As a creationist, I would like to apologize to you for the material out there in which people get so caught up in wanting their kids/students to believe in Intelligent Design that they completely forget to pay attention to logic and science. I do believe that God created the world, but I believe that science is valid and able to support that fact. I do NOT believe in saying, “Ignore science and believe my poor reasoning just because the stories say so.”
    I’ve seen examples of both evolutionists and creationists making mistakes, ignoring facts, and treating each other badly, and it’s too bad that it comes to these prove-God-does-or-doesn’t-exist wars instead of just looking to learn more about this amazing world we live in. Thanks for keeping a sharp eye out for the fallacies.

    • Hey 🙂 Thanks for commenting! It’s nice to see a Creationist who believes in science as well as their own religious beliefs, who never get anything written about them. I tried finding the Creationist museum to put into the blog too, but I forgot where it was . . .
