    Well now, there's a creation science Hall of Fame. When did it become a science?

    Are creationists justified in calling their work science? If so then I suspect that a creation science sub forum would be in order.


    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    When they wanted to make it look legit. (huge fail there though)

    They can call it what they like, unfortunately.
    But that of course does not make it a science. As much as me calling myself king, wouldn't make me such.


    A logician saves the life of a tiny space alien. The alien is very grateful and, since she's omniscient, offers the following reward: she offers to answer any question the logician might pose. Without too much thought (after all, he's a logician), he asks: "What is the best question to ask and what is the correct answer to that question?" The tiny alien pauses. Finally she replies, "The best question is the one you just asked; and the correct answer is the one I gave."

    Shows you what mere mortals think constitutes science. How would you rate the job true scientists are doing to counter creationist's claims, are they winning or losing the battle? Little Suzy & Johnny will more than likely be exposed to creationist science before any of the accepted sciences.

    As far as I know, I don't think they're doing anything to counter these claims there really is no need, anybody with any sense would know that the creationists claims are not rational, not logical and just plain dumb.

    Sadly that is true in a lot of the world. However here in Europe it is extremely less likely. But even if it were; Provided those children are allowed to use their critical minds, they will realize creationism, is a dumb course to take.

    Pretty much imposible to apply science methods to counter ideas for which there are no testable hypothesis offered. Rebuttles are limited to pointing out that ID/Creationism offers nothing that can be tested for--and is therefore not worthy of serious scientific consideration; or I would suggest serous consideration by rational non-scientitist.

    While on the subject of Halls of Fame and a slight deviation from religion for a moment......is there a Hall of Fame for science? Not for specific sciences but in general. I found this website put up by two Harvard guys but it sounds so hokey, millidarwins et al, that I'd rather look at the creationist H of F(prettier). Couldn't even find zinjanthropos' discoverers, the Leakeys, listed on it.

    THE STUPIDITY, IT BURNS.

    God did not just sneeze the universe out of nothing, so there's no need for creationism in the first place. >personal-belief

    Yet as far as I've seen, science and creationism don't seem to mix in harmony, especially when it comes to the topic: "How the universe was made."

    I was roaming their website when I noticed this: Our motto “Proving the existence of God.”.. Now as far as science have went, no one can absolutely prove that God exists/does not exist. It's a personal belief so the website should just be renamed to "Creationists hall of fame."

    There are the Nobel prizes each year.

    and since 1991 the Ig-Nobel prizes just for fun.

    So yes they do pat themselves on the back from time to time.

    Our motto
    “Proving the existence of God.”
    If you're going to start a site based in attacking conventional science, you might as well start off with a plan that is scientifically impossible.
