Scientific American Anti-Creationist Rant | Around the World with Ken Ham

Scientific American Anti-Creationist Rant | Around the World with Ken Ham.

Scientific American science blogger, Dana Hunter, recently wrote, “These creationists have a distressing tendency to lie by omission, trying to lure actual geologists into associating with them by pretending they’re legit, and then telling their fundamentalist flocks they’ve presented their work professionally, therefore their creationist spin is SCIENCE – only failing to mention that wasn’t open and avowed creation science they were presenting to the professionals.”

This part of her emotional rant highlights the bias in the secular media against creation scientists. Instead of critically dialoguing with the scientific arguments that creation geologists make—like rapid sedimentation, catastrophic plate tectonics, or the problems with radioisotope dating—Hunter (and others like her) merely throw out a bunch of ad hominem attacks, accusing creation geologists of being deceitful and implying that they aren’t professionals or actual geologists.

“I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by men who were inspired. I study the Bible daily. Opposition to godliness is atheism in profession and idolatry in practice. Atheism is so senseless and odious to mankind that it never had many professors.” – Sir Isaac Newton
