  •  The biggest problem... (4.00)
    ...I have with creationism is that it tries to completely replace the "how" with "who".  Science is not about determining WHO did something.  Science is about discovering HOW it was done.

    Saying God created the universe is all well and good.  But it doesn't answer the question about HOW the universe was created.  Regardless of whether something is a random phenomenon or a divine intention, there should still be discussion on how that process was carried out.

    This is the biggest single factual fudge-up creationists get themselves into.  They utterly fail to recognize the possiblity that evolution can be an engine of divine creation.  Maybe it's not sexy and "magical" enough for them.  Maybe it's more impressive to think that God gathered a pile of dust and blew his breath on it (does God have Lungs?) to create a human being.  As if God really needs to impress anyone.

    But they would rather be wraped up in the warm, fuzzy, safety blanket of mythology than truely contemplate the nature of creation.

    I can't wait til they start making us wear armbands.
