Re: On teaching creationism in science class
Hi bluescat48,
I am having some problems with this creation, science thing. Maybe you or someone could clarify my thinking.

There is no such thing as creation sciences.
But isn't creation science what is taught in the classroom today?
Just not the Bible version or the many other versions of creationist.
Definition of creation from Here
creation
Noun
1. a creating or being created
2. something brought into existence or created
According to Hawking the universe has not always existed. He said: Here
quote:
In this lecture, I would like to discuss whether time itself has a beginning, and whether it will have an end. All the evidence seems to indicate, that the universe has not existed forever, but that it had a beginning, about 15 billion years ago. This is probably the most remarkable discovery of modern cosmology. Yet it is now taken for granted.
Today the universe does exist.
That means that the universe had to come into existence which is creation.
Thus the universe had to be created.
Creationism is the different views of how this creation took place.
Thus the scientific view taught is one view of creationism.
Why is the creation view that is presently taught more correct than any of the rest?
If they are not all studied how can true knowledge be found?
There is also the view that the universe was not created. That it has always been here. String theory, as well as my thoughts fit in this category.
God Bless,

"John 5:39 (KJS) Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."

Re: creation science
Hi Mod,
Modulous writes:
It isn't about being more correct. It is about adhering to certain rigorous standards in line with the scientific method. 'Creation science' does not do this, neither does 'intelligent design theory' so they cannot be 'taught' in the same kind of way one might teach the theory of evolution
So actually this discussion is not about creation. Things coming into existence.
It is about what the BBT covers and what evolution covers.
So how can you say:
quote:
They are all studied -
Science has no knowledge of how creation happened. They hide behind, "We don't know".
Creationist on the other hand put forth several ways that creation could have taken place.
God Bless,
