Posted by admin On June - 15 - 2009 Comments Off on Can Creationists Make Accurate Predictions About Evolution?

Learning about evolution also means learning about the participants in the ongoing discussion.  Some would have us believe that only a biologist,  or maybe a paleontologist with a PhD is capable of discussing and fully understanding the concept of evolution.  Others will tell us that there is really no dissent among scientists about how evolution happened.  You should not be swayed by these arguments.  Smart, critically thinking minds are everywhere, and sometimes it takes a sharp mind coming from a completely different perspective to see the strengths and weaknesses in an idea.

Creationists probably take the biggest beating of all among the participants in the discussion of evolution.  They are called names and ridiculed mercilessly by scientists and professors who paint them as ignorant, dogmatic “flat-earthers.”  But is this really fair?  Can a creationist mind bring anything at all to the discussion of evolution?

Answers In Genesis is a Creationist group led by Ken Ham.  Mainstream evolution has taught for decades that birds evolved from Dinosaurs.  Creationists such as A.P. Galling of AiG have been claiming that birds did not in fact, evolve from Dinosaurs.  Who is right?  Mainstream scientists, or A.P. Galling?  Both scientists and A.P Galling have been looking at and observing exactly the same data, but they have come to completely different conclusions.

Today, scientists are beginning to question the long standing idea that birds came from dinosaurs because of the evidence. For a fresh perspective on this iconic view of evolution, see what this creationist group at Answers In Genesis has to say about birds and evolution:
