Thread Name: BS: Young Earth Creationism
Subject: RE: BS: Young Earth Creationism
Scientists *know* that their beliefs are falsifiable.
For instance, my belief in an ancient Earth and evolution would be falsified by the finding of an anthropogenic pottery shard or other artifiact in the same stratigraphic bed as a trilobite.
For the analogy to hold, the Creationist must state what evidence would falsify their belief in divine creation and/or a young Earth.
So what is that piece of hypothetical evidence?
Note: this is not antagonism...simply pointing out a difference that is clear (to scientists at least).
