Re: Bill Nye: “Creationism is not Appropriate for Children”

People, of late, have this idea that there are two sides to everything, and that just isn't the case. Having an open mind doesn't mean blindly accepting everything on it's own merits without critically thinking. There aren't always two sides to everything. Sometimes, the other idea is simply baloney.

This is Creationism: http://www.creationism.org/articles/index.htm
They use the term "Creation Science", but nowhere, in that morass of theological hand waving, is the Scientific Method employed.

Here is a general study of evolution and the evidence for it: http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evolib...0_0_0/lines_01
Notice the supporting information that doesn't rely on verses from the Bible to make it's points?

The two ideas are not even remotely equal. It would be as if you described to me the physics involved behind the development of a star, and I answer with "God said let there be light, and that's how it happened." There's just no reasonable comparison.
