Re: Evolution classes optional under proposed Alberta lawMay 6th, 2009
With the above comment in mind, exactly why are you unwilling to consider the Theory of Creationism?
For the simple reason, Captain, that it is not a theory, it is a fact (as you yourself said a while ago), it is a religious fact. Which is another word for superstition.
Nonetheless, you pose an interesting point about perspective. That said, considering that creationists don't subscribe to evolution, it must qualify as a superstition.
Certainly the science-community would take exception, however from the perspective of anyone that wasn't convinced as to completeness of the theory (due to inability to replicate like you mentioned), it then qualifies as superstition.
Let me give you an example. Suppose I am standing in front of you and say I have an apple in my hand. Is that a theory? No, it is a fact (if I have an apple in my hand) or a falsehood (if I donít).
If one belongs to religious right, it is a fact, if one doesnít; it is a religious fact, or superstition. But no way is Creationism a theory.
That's the second time in this post that you've made this point. Perhaps you are not completely confident in making that assertion.
