Creation science rebuttals carbon dating
In what must be taken as sincere flattery, these tactics appear to acknowledge just how deeply the inner lessons of science have pervaded modern culture.Intelligent Design (ID) pays tribute to its rival, by demanding to be recognized as a direct and “scientific” competitor with the Theory of Evolution.
Instead, they invoke skepticism and cite alleged faulty evidence as reasons to teach students alternatives to evolution. That’s the question Neil de Grasse Tyson explores with evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins and in-studio guest Rev. Join us as we look at both sides of the issue, from whether rational thought is an evolutionary benefit, to the astronomical contributions of Jesuit scientists at the Vatican Observatory, to the question of contemporary scientists believing in a supernatural power.Martin, a firm believer in evolution, asks why scientists who are content with unsolved mysteries like what came before The Big Bang, or those that exist in quantum physics, are any different than people of faith who are content with an incomplete understanding of God or the universe?Dawkins discusses how a scientist’s appetite for wonder and understanding leads science forward, and explains why pre-Darwinian scientists like Isaac Newton saw a designer’s hand in creation.And of course, no discussion of this subject would be complete without addressing Einstein’s repeated use of the word god and Galileo’s persecution by the Catholic Church and their eventual, albeit ridiculously late, pardon.True, they produce little or no evidence to support their own position.
ID promoters barely try to undermine evolution as a vast and sophisticated model of the world, supported by millions of tested and interlocking facts.
At the level that they are fighting, none of that matters.

A clue to both the recent success — and the eventual collapse — of “Intelligent Design” can be found in its name, and in the new tactics that are being used to support its incorporation into school curricula.
