This thread isn't intended to engage in yet another creation vs. evolution debate inasmuch as it is to discuss the gullibility and hypocrisy of those
who adhere to the theory of evolution and accept supporting evidence with virtually wholesale approval.
I am not interested in proving or disproving evolution, creationism, or the flood account. There is a constant barrage of insults concerning those who
dare question the evidence put forth by evolutionary scientists. Those who do are often referred to as delusional, liars, close minded, ignorant,
lacking in logic and critical thinking, etc.
Creationists are often accused of blindly believing the Genesis account and accepting the universe as being the product of a divine creator although
there is evidence to confirm our stance (even if it sometimes depends on the process of elimination). I must ask why so many evolutionists regularly
swallow evidence that supports their view in spite of repeated faulty finds, retractions, and loose connections and evidence.
Some archaeological finds deemed as fact will later be proven false and the usual defense is, 'We are still learning and are bound to make
mistakes.' In my opinion, that is a poor excuse. If you are going to describe something as science and fact but accuse those who do not agree with
your view as lacking 'logic, reason, and critical thinking' then the current existing evidence of evolution should be rock solid.
To compare, let's use my opinion of flood geology as an example of how to weigh evidence without being gullible enough to believe something just
because it conforms to one's beliefs. I can admit that some finds in defense of the flood are fascinating, some are so obviously false, and some are
too open to interpretation to be considered proof/evidence. It would be arrogant to accuse those who do not agree with such discoveries as lacking
'logic, reason, and critical thinking' because some of the evidence is admittedly shaky.
However, ardent evolutionists seem to lack the ability to weigh the evidence being offered to defend their belief and will only admit evidence as
being false in the face of absolute facts that irrefutably debunk their evidence. It seems that evidence supporting evolution is innocent until proven
