Re: Why are Creationists so afraid of Evolution?

There's no dialogue possible between creationists like McBain and rational people. It's sad and funny.

If evolution is "unscientific", then what is scientific? The entire field of biology relies on the theory of evolution in the same way that all of geology relies on the theory of plate tectonics. If the Earth is not 4.5 billion years old and evolution is "unscientific", then what exactly is modern scientific progress relying on? How did we get this far in understanding the universe if we're resting on an unscientific foundation? It's ridiculous to think biology and geology are completely wrong without accepting that every other field is wrong too. Physics would have to be completely wrong for us to have made such fundamental mistakes about the age of the earth and the evolution of life. And physics is not wrong - it works, and there's no denying that without denying reality itself.
