I agree saying the earth is 6,000 years old is a lie, the earth is billions of years old, but mankind as a species is only 6,000 years old. Why is it that recorded history starts around 4,000-4500 BC? If humans are an intelligent species that have been around for 100000 years why did it take us so long to learn how to write words down?? I mean if you read the bible in context, and understand world history, it all lines up.
Creation's primary source of 'evidence' is a 2,600 year old, pre-scientific book, and non-religious (or in this context, non-biased) believers in Creation simply do not exist. People only believe in creation because it makes their faith seem more concrete and real; and they simply dodge facts and make things up if the evidence doesn't suit their beliefs.
Science uses the scientific method to prove or disprove a hypothesis. Creationism is ideas brought up through scripts from the Bible. Darwin's scientific theory of evolution, has been proved through the scientific method over and over again. That is why it is called a theory. Creationism is not proven through the scientific method, so it is definitely not science!
I don't believe that creationism is real science. There is virtually no scientific proof to back anything that creationists say up. I think that most of what they believe is just fiction - a really nice little story. On the other hand, there are many facts that can back up evolution. Creationism is at the opposite end of that spectrum.
I'm one of those that finds the whole concept fascinating, but I ultimately do not believe that it is science. For starters, it seems to ignore a lot of glaringly obvious evidence that supports certain things in mainstream science. For another, it seems that the whole idea starts with the ideas contained within the texts of the Bible and related scriptural texts.
It's interesting if you delve into some of their ideas, but it's not really science.
There's nothing in science books to even suggest that creationism is based on any type of real science. Creationism was made up by religious people that wanted people to believe that humans and dinosaurs roamed the earth together. Trying to make science magically fit into the Bible will never work, and shouldn't be encouraged.
