The goal of "creation science" is to selectively find data that fits a very specific scheme of understanding. It also exists to find the anomaly which will provide an excuse to throw the whole scientific scheme out the window, bypassing reexamination, revision and just ending up with the conclusion that the earth is 6 thousand years old and snakes could talk. It's backwards science as the conclusion has been reached before the analysis. The goal was never to objectively seek truth and build understanding from the ground up. Ultimately what's so repulsive about secular scientific practice is that it does not deal in absolutes and when contradictory data emerges, it results in the scheme being modified and not data or models being thrown out. That is why our current scheme of understanding no longer fits that of the church. The story that the natural world tells us is not subject to the conclusions we make. It is not simply good enough in the parameters of science to believe something because "the bible told me so."
This is why this discussion is going no where and will not go anywhere. Even when LaPalida shows up and starts heroically kicking ass. Really all I'm left with is the annoyance that the science enthusiasts here cannot discuss the current events we find interesting without some fundamentalist feeling threatened. And of course this just results with the interjection with the same stale regurgitated party lines. i.e. "If we came from monkeys, how come monkeys are still making more monkeys?" and you start to hear all kinds of phony distinctions like micro and macro evolution. Don't kid yourselves, the only reason "micro evolution" is acceptable to you is because we have actually been around long enough to observe it. And because we have documented it, replicated it and found medical application for it, a small surrender was required on the part of the church. What is not realized is that the distinction we make to classify one species and distinguish it from another are completely arbitrary and exist for human convenience only. We know that life has great capacity for change should environmental pressures be present. It's simply a matter of time. Slight changes that occur over generations will never stop adding up.
