Creationists are liars' (?): Geologist Donald Prothero doesnt like the fact that we dont agree with his ideas on evolution.
I love the attitude some evolutionists have toward professional, scientific debate. Because creationist scientists do not agree with their biased, subjective and unsubstantiated ideas they spit the dummy and call us liars.
The latest tirade from geologist Donald Prothero is in an opinion piece in NewScientist entitled ‘Evolution: What missing link?’1 I like that title.
His article was picked up by the Telegraph newspaper in the UK which reported, ‘Creationists “peddle lies about the fossil record”.’2
Lies? Are creationists really lying?
It’s just that Prothero does not like the fact that we don’t agree with his ideas. It upsets him so much that he describes creationists in this way: ...

Did you expect they would admit to lying?

By the way, it’s linkS!
I guess the evolutionists will find out who is telling the truth the moment they die. By then, however, it will be too late to change their minds. Their fate will have been sealed for eternity. I don't take any pleasure in that, but that is reality.
The evo geologist said missing “link” (singular).
THis may be somewhat out of context, but I watched a show the other night called “The Evidence,” and it took a scientific look at responding to critics of Christianity. As a geologist myself, I understand the scientific view point that if you can’t watch it, observe it, quantify it, measure it, submit it to physical tests, it can’t be called scientists.
Then these folks started talking about consciousness. I asked a friend who believes in evolution, and I said, if this is all just chance, I am, by dumb luck a person instead of rock. There is no reason I should not have been a gabbro instead of a human. He seemed to agree.
And especially on the cosmological view that all matter of the universe was initially combined into a small volume, and upon the Big Bang, matter disassembled, assembled, evolved, some matter became rocks, some water, some animals, some trees.
No one knows how inanimate matter came to have life. There are a lot of so-called theories, but nothing more than “this may produce amino acids that may lead to cell building.”
But even more confounding, and not explainable by scientists, is consciousness. Science cannot explain consciousness. That is a pretty serious thing, it is the reason we even think about what we do, or study science in the first place. So, the pre-imminent reason science came to exist, human consciousness, cannot be explained by science.
It just seems paradoxical for a scientist to discard a theory based on the fact that it cannot be defined by the scientific method.
Do you expect us to believe in what does not exist?
I’m tired of people’s calling other people “liars,” when they mean, “I disagree with their opinion,” or when they mean, “I think they have their facts wrong.”
Lying requires (1) knowledge of the truth, and (2) intent to conceal the truth. Being honestly wrong about facts is not lying; having an opinion others dislike is not lying.
I expect you to be human.
What are you, some sort of nutcase dogmatic absolutist?
Let's see whom should we believe in a science topic; a confabulating blowhard or tenured professor at Occidental University with a PhD in the subject from Columbia?
Gee, if it wasn’t for your /sarc tag, I might have mistaken you for a standard evo!
“The creationists must be lying because they don’t believe our cladograms”, he said with a straight face.
Unfortunately there are people on both sides of the argument who simply can’t bear to live with the idea that the other side exists. However I think the greatest number are those who are fine with the beliefes of the others as long as we’re free to believe what we want.
Personally I’m one of those who believes in directed evolution of mankind. (Christian evolutionist) We’re clearly different than any other creature on the planet and even very distinct from the creatures most similar to us.
Then he’s a twit.
I’m a young-earth creationist, but I understand that people can look at the same data and come to different, reasonable conclusions.
How about the Pope? Will his fate be sealed for eternity for saying this....
“there is much scientific proof in favor of evolution, which appears as a reality that we must see and which enriches our understanding of life and being as such.
Pope Benedict XVI
