How do you explain the development of antibiotics resistant strain of bacteria’s after a couple of generations ?
I would like you to tell an abused child that they can create their own reality and see how well that goes.

Everything is evolution to these people. They point at examples of speciation for example as if this is some kind of argument against creationism when all speciation really is, is a loss of genetic information over time between two different species of the same kind of animal, as they lose the ability to procreate with each other. If they believe in change over time by common ancestry, then they are going to have to do a whole lot better than that, because this is in fact de-evolution, not evidence of increasing complexity as the theory of evolution by common ancestry demands. It is a shining example of the evolutionist twisting the real science to fit into their paradigm.
Gnosticism seems to be the flavour of the month here, they are as delusional as those who think evolution is a proven science.

Maybe some sound scientific evidence in favor of creationism?
Does any exist for the young earth model?
Or any alternative theory to evolution?
That's one thing I've yet to see anyone post yet (maybe I missed it).
why in the hell would any sensible person want to believe ANYTHING people like this do?

They will repack the same drugs under a new name, and new use it can be put to ,roll out the salesmen, the free trips for the doctors. Meanwhile the list of contraindications grow. The DMSV has what over 1000 "illness'" now? You do realize that the anectodal throwaway of "it takes over $100 million" to make a new drug does bear scrutiny. Most of that money goes to lobbyists or put in reserve for future litigation.
I could have worded my post better - my main point being that psychiatry has replaced the confessor priest as the new religion. It feeds at the public trough and yet its looking for that chemical imbalance. Lets not get into ADHD medications.
Psychology and counselling have their rightful place. Mental incarceration is a return to the dark ages.
I understand that the science of the mind continues to grow, its the foundation of psychiatry as a hard fact science that i question.
In 1971, he graduated from East Peoria Community High School in East Peoria, Illinois. From 1972 to 1974, Hovind attended the non-accredited Midwestern Baptist College and received a Bachelor of Religious Education.
In 1988 and 1991 respectively, Hovind was awarded a master's degree and doctorate in Christian Education through correspondence from the non-accredited Patriot University in Colorado Springs, Colorado (now Patriot Bible University in Del Norte, Colorado, which no longer offers this program). Having a website called "Dr. Dino" has provoked some academics to look closely at how Hovind presents his education and credentials. Barbara Forrest, a professor of philosophy, expert on the history of creationism and activist in the creation-evolution controversy, wrote that Hovind's lack of academic training makes it impossible to engage him on a professional level.
Patriot Bible University is a diploma mill, as it has unreasonably low graduation requirements, lack of sufficient faculty or educational standards, and a suspicious tuition scheme. The school's current policies allow students to attain bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, and Doctor of Ministry degrees in months, rather than years, for as little as $37 per credit.
Bartelt has stated that Hovind's doctoral dissertation is evidence of the poor requirements at Patriot and that Hovind lacks knowledge of basic science. She noted that Hovind's dissertation is incomplete (it contains four chapters totaling 101 pages, but Hovind's introduction claims the work is 250 pages with 16 chapters), of low academic quality, with poor writing, poor spelling, and poor grammatical style. Bartelt asserts that pages are repeated, references are absent, and it is not an original work with original ideas.
