And I most definitely did not describe goat herders, the writers of the Bible, or indeed any ancient people as "ignoramuses". I was reserving that description for present day creationists who took their writings literally. The concept of a "scientifically qualified creationist" is a strange one. Its true that someone can get a scientific PhD, then go and do something else. Even be a priest, John Polkinghorne is far from the only example. One of my closest colleagues in astrophysics, now sadly no longer with us, had a parallel career as a Jesuit priest. But to get involved in creationism, that is a denial of the training that obtaining their qualification involved.
