Educating Tomorrow's Leaders Today

Home schoolers help disprove evolution. Again. The academic leader of the expedition is from the Harvard of Creation Science, to which I linked just yesterday. And I know that the local guy I mentioned in the same post has lectured at least one pricey private school in the area.

What bothers me so much about "creation science" is its fundamental dishonesty, the willingness to misstate facts to buttress belief. That's why I've always kind of liked the doctrine of "apparent age" propagated by Henry Morris, the dean of evolutionary pseudo-science. The idea is that the Earth was created 6,000 years ago, but God made it appear to be billions of years of old. It is a theory with a certain elegance, although it does fail the test of Occam's Razor.
