After trudging through various attempts by Answers in Genesis to come up with alternative religious reasons for why all evidence points to existence being much much older than just a few thousand years, I hit upon a common theme in each AiG thesis. This theme, which is actually more of an error to the scientific process than a theme, permeated nearly every Answers in Genesis thesis. The theme is that each proponent began their paper with an extreme bias towards the answer to their thesis. To further prove AiG’s extreme lack of credibility and understanding of science, it’s proponents always seem to begin with a concrete answer in mind. This is the opposite of following were evidence leads. This is the opposite of real science. AiG might as well be trying to prove everything came from a cosmic cockroach turd. I mean they can just have someone write a book about everything coming from a turd, begin defending it with the same tactics, and change nothing about the argument and actual conclusions to the debate or they could actually try looking at things from a real scientific perspective. They could forget their wishes and agendas and explore the actual evidence. Surely they realize how foolish they look. Real scientists don’t reach conclusions by ascertaining that a theory is true before completing a process of extensive research and peer review. Real scientists are more than willing to change their opinions with the addition of new evidence. Real scientists base opinions only upon things that can be measured. AiG “scientists” wrap up their god wishes in a blanket of pseudo science and logical fallacies.
