  •  "The" creationist myth? (0+ / 0-)

    To say that "the" creationist myth was the only ballgame prior to Darwin is simplistic and inaccurate.  Simplistic because there have been many creation myths among the various religions of the world, not just one, and inaccurate because beyond those creation myths there were also naturalistic/rational attempts at explaining the origins of life and the universe.  Creation myths might be relevant in a philosophy class, or as part of an examination of the history behind the development of our modern understanding of the universe, but they're not science and shouldn't be treated as such.
