We can't be held responsible for the misapprehensions of SciCre-ists. They believe any silly misconception imaginable about evolution and evolutionary mechanism theories.

We can, however, hold SciCre-ists responsible for their own claims.


The concept of special creation says that matter, energy, stars, planets, plants, animals, man, and all things were brought into existence by special creative processes which are no longer operating. It says that present-day phenomena and processes, while pointing to the necessity of a primeval creation, cannot in themselves create anything. Since in this framework, the study of science forcefully points to past creation, it necessarily implies a Creator and therefore an orderly, meaningful, and purposeful universe.

Why should we not insist that SciCre-ists really address the issues that they claim to address?
