Questions for creationists

  1. How can we test for creationism in the anatomical, genetic and fossil records? What is the falsifiable theory of creationism that would frame such an investigation, provide a solid and reliable interpretative framework and provide the necessary intellectual tools to form predictive hypotheses from the resulting data?
  2. Who are you exactly to dispute the findings of thousands of biologists and geologists?
  3. Which of these sites contains the Flood layer: Klasies River, Blombos Cave, Nabta Playa, Uan Tabu? I have the site reports for all four sites. Be specific in identifying the Flood layer.
  4. What is your definition of the scientific method and what is the falsifiable basis of creationism?
  5. And name one medical breakthrough in the last 50 years which came about as a result of active research inspired by a creation science framework? Or are you merely another hypocrite who critises evolution without understanding it, all the while taking evolution-inspired medication to cure your materialistic illnesses.
Evidence for evolution is a nice summary article on the origin of whales and the power of independent evidence on how the merging of the two chimpanzee chromosomes into the human chromosome 2 is evidence for a common ancestor
