Interestingly I hadn't yet read your reply while composing mine.

Coyoteman:

Both facts and theories are required in order to do science

Stultis:

...great minds...

Science is what it is.

All the claims and deliberate misstatements by the creationists will not change the way science works; the scientific method has been narrowed down to a pretty workable and efficient way of getting results in the real world. And it produces verifiable results!

They can have magic, superstition, wishful thinking, old wives tales, folklore, what the stars foretell and what the neighbors think, omens, public opinion, astromancy, spells, Ouija boards, anecdotes, Da Vinci codes, tarot cards, sorcery, seances, sore bunions, black cats, divine revelation, table tipping, witch doctors, crystals and crystal balls, numerology, divination, faith healing, miracles, palm reading, the unguessable verdict of history, tea leaves, new age mumbo-jumbo, hoodoo, voodoo and all that other weird stuff.

I'll stick to science.
