  •  What's the definition of "model"? (0+ / 0-)

    I think there's a problem with the way the question is defined.  

    If you ask "Is Creationism a valid scientific hypothesis?", then you can address the problem of whether it is test-able, which it is not, because any and all possible outcomes can be valid based on the proposition that "God made it come out that way", so there is no way to draw any scientific conclusions based on the outcome of any test of the hypothesis.

    Before you can debate the details of creationism, you have to debate whether creationism is a subject that is valid to discuss in the context of scientific analysis in the first place.  Which -- it is not.   It is a topic belonging in the realm of religion, and has no relevance to science.
