What about the scientists who support creationism?

n regard to a recent letter to the editor (“Why is there a bias against science education?,” The Herald, March 17) I suggest it does not exist. First of all, the statistic that 150 million Americans believe the world was created 6,000 years ago is suspicious. I don’t believe that statement. How can Time magazine prove it? I believe this is a flawed statistic. Even so, it does not matter because of my next point.

Second, (and here is the real issue), there are scientists with degrees that will show you their proof that that world was created 6,000 years ago. There are plenty of websites out there that will verify this. There is a whole organization that has “scientific” conferences on the subject. So my question has to be, why would someone believe that religious agenda comes first and is anti-science when scientists are using science to prove otherwise? Science is based on theories. There is no current theory that can prove these scientists are wrong. Don’t take my word for it. Go check them out.

Sorry, I am not picking a side on this issue. As far as I can see, both sides have major obstacles to prove. I am merely stating that the argument the letter writer presented is flawed.
