A quote of yours from an earlier post, pete (I can't always seem to be able to access Mudcat):
" And your suggestion that creationists cannot be real scientists is just sticking your head in the sand ..."
Can I remind you that REAL scientists don't start from the premise that they are in possession of absolute truth and 'work backwards' from there? In addition, REAL scientists don't spend all of their time, and expend all of their efforts, trying to discredit the conclusions of other scientists, mainly because those conclusions cast doubt on their prior assumption of absolute truth!
I recently watched an episode of the TV programme 'Mock the Week'. During the programme the comedian, Andy Parsons remarked: "There are five major religions in the world. That means that four of them must be wrong!" Leaving aside the possibilty that all of them might be wrong, how do you know that YOU'VE picked the right one and that you, and your beloved "creationist scientists" (LOL!), are really in possession of absolute truth?
