By Jill S. Schneiderman, Warren D. Allmon

In line with the belief of clever layout, nature's complexity is the results of planned making plans through a supernatural artistic strength. up to now, such a lot medical arguments in contrast type of creationism were made by way of evolutionary biologists. during this quantity, a workforce of earth scientists finds that the issues of clever layout are usually not restricted to the organic sciences. certainly, the geological sciences provide the superior refutations of clever layout arguements. For the Rock checklist is devoted to the proposition that the assumption of clever layout could be of great hindrance to everybody. Editors Jill S. Schneiderman and Warren D. Allmon have accrued best figures from the geological group with quite a lot of viewpoints that visit the center of the controversy over what's and isn't technology. The purveyors of clever layout theories and its kindred philosophies threaten the clinical literacy that our society wishes through complicated religion and the perform of technological know-how. This assortment bargains a much-needed reaction.

Example text

Oard (1990) and Vardiman (1993, 2001) have been the main proponents of a recent ice age occurring as an aftermath of Noah’s Flood, and this idea has been widely accepted by young-Earth creationists despite lack of biblical support. To force the glacial record into a young-Earth time frame, Oard (1990, 1997, 2005) dismissed multiple cycles of Pleistocene glaciation as mere glacial surges, as well as attributing evidence of older glaciation events to submarine landslides. As is common with young-Earth creationists addressing geological questions, Oard did no field or lab work of his own.

But then that only gives each “kind” about a cubic meter to live in on the boat—still not much of an improvement on the situation of the animals or the logic of the creationist argument (Moore 1983; McGowan 1984). This “solution” creates a whole new set of problems. Not only does it concede evolution from the created “kinds,” but the “kinds” have no basis in biology at all. When creationist literature is examined, it becomes apparent that sometimes the “kinds” are species, sometimes they are genera, and sometimes they are whole families, orders, or even phyla of animals (Siegler 1978; Ward 1965)!
