More War on Science fun with a field trip to Crazytown, where the
current Mayor is creationist paleontologist Kurt Wise, currently
working as a consultant for the Creation Museum in Florence, KY.
Kurt Wise's office at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary you can
find fossils that secular scientists claim are billions of years old
and are part of the long process of man's evolution.
Harvard-trained paleontology expert is out to show a better explanation
for fossils -- and why neither science nor the Bible allow for
evolution. That's why Wise, director of the Center for Theology and
Science and professor of theology and science at Southern, also has
agreed to serve as a consultant for the Creation Museum in Florence,
Ky., near Cincinnati.
The museum, scheduled to open in April
2007, will feature 50,000 square feet and more than 250 exhibits
countering the errors of evolutionary science and demonstrating the
reliability of the first 11 chapters in Genesis.
always wondered why young earth creationists mention fossils at all. If
the Earth is only 6,000 years old (which is what young earthers claim),
where did they come from? They use the fossil record to criticize
evolution, but they have no fossils of modern creatures -- where's the
pig fossil, the chicken fossil, the dog fossil? If all these organisms
have been here since the gitgo, where are their fossils? And there are no fossils showing carved
bone -- primitive fish hooks and sewing needles we find in an
unfossilized state. If it only takes 6,000 years for things to
fossilized, where are they? Why is it that very few animals that aren't
extinct have been fossilized?
These questions are better off ignored, which is what Wise basically advises...
