Scientific Inaccuracies at AIG’s Creation “Museum”

Parents, educators, scientists, clergy, and other citizens are concerned about scientifically inaccurate exhibits at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, operated by Answers in Genesis, a fundamentalist Christian ministry.

The statement below has been prepared by and for scientists in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana. Please feel free to sign if you are a scientist (faculty or post-doctoral level) from these states. And please circulate this statement among your colleagues.

From the World-Wide Flood to the World Wide Web: Creationism in the Digital Age

From the World-Wide Flood to the World Wide Web: Creationism in the Digital Age
Stephen C Burnett


Recent research has shown strong support for science among the public in the US (National Science Board 2006). At the same time, this research shows that this same public is generally not well-informed about scientific issues (National Science Board 2006). In fact, the NSB report concludes that “the public’s lack of knowledge about basic scientific facts and the scientific process can have far reaching implications” (National Science Board 2006). This problem is not limited to adults, as tests of scientific literacy rate US students below the level of their counterparts in many other countries (National Science Board 2006). In particular, understanding of evolutionary biology is especially poor among Americans (Miller and others 2006), and it seems to be an issue from grade school (Michigan House Civics Commission 2006) to college (Holden 2006a). While this issue exists in other countries, the United States is the arguably the developed nation where the problem is most severe (Lazcano 2005; Miller and others 2006). Clearly, public perception of evolutionary biology is out of line with the actual state of science, and efforts to correct this should be a high priority.

Review: Creation's Tiny Mystery

Creation's Tiny Mystery
Robert V. Gentry

For many years, creationist Robert Gentry has claimed that he's uncovered scientific evidence of a miraculous event. Gentry says that this evidence, halos of a very short-lived isotope (Polonium 218) which lack the inner halo of a longer-lived radioactive parent, undermines the uniformitarian principle. He believes that these halos, "God's fingerprint," demonstrate that natural laws were suspended in the past. He also claims that other miracles occurred in four "singularities," or sets of miraculous events, which are described in the Bible.

Review: Ride to Glory

Ride to Glory: The People v. Charles Robert Darwin
Warren LeRoi Jones
As a matter of principle, I finish any book I start reading. Some books are easy to finish - anything by John Irving, and John Kennedy Toole's masterpiece A Confederacy of Dunces, for example. Others are more difficult. No book in recent memory, or distant memory for that matter, challenged this principle more than Ride to Glory by Warren LeRoi Johns, a lawyer and novelist wannabe.

Common Creationist Attacks on Geology

Common Creationist Attacks on Geology
Christopher Gregory Weber

In the last issue of this journal, my article "The Fatal Flaws of Flood Geology" attacked the flood geology model of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) by citing a number of geological formations the creationists can't explain without inventing hundreds of convenient ad hoc miracles. However, creationists have attacked orthodox geology by citing geological formations they feel geologists are equally hard pressed to account for with the evolutionary model. This article answers several of their most common arguments, those relating to

Radiometric Dating Does Work!

Radiometric Dating Does Work!
G. Brent Dalrymple

Radiometric dating of rocks and minerals using naturally occurring, long-lived radioactive isotopes is troublesome for young-earth creationists because the techniques have provided overwhelming evidence of the antiquity of the earth and life. Some so-called creation scientists have attempted to show that radiometric dating does not work on theoretical grounds (for example, Arndts and Overn 1981; Gill 1996) but such attempts invariably have fatal flaws (see Dalrymple 1984; York and Dalrymple 2000).
