Welcome to the Christian Pseudoscience Monitor
I'm a chemist-biochemist with little formal training in evolution. When I testified against the "equal time" bill (equal time for creationism and evolution) before the legislative education committee (NE) in 1981, I knew little about creationism. Perhaps it had disappeared in the '30s. Perhaps I'd get challenging arguments from creationists. I was mistaken. Proponents of "equal time" were mostly scientifically illiterate and gullible to the most nonsensical creationism. For example, one proponent told me that there were two sides to the issue, the Christian side vs. everything else (evolution plus New Age speculation, Native American creation myths, etc). Scientific training doesn't prepare one for such logic.
The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
