The Best Evidence That God Created

(p.50) 10 The Best Evidence That God Created
Among the Creationists

Jason Rosenhouse

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, the author discusses some of the scientific claims advanced by creationists, drawn from biology. He first reflects on his experience as a participant in the Creation Mega-Conference, held on the campus of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, for one week in July 2005. He recalls attending a session called “What Is the Best Evidence That God Created?” by Carl Kerby, who launched an attack against evolution while elevating the Bible to a status above that of the physical evidence, along with his emphasis on certainty. He then considers the tendency of creationists to accuse scientists of simply making assumptions about evolution and then tailoring their hypotheses accordingly. He concludes by arguing that evolution has produced tangible progress for more than a century, whereas creationism offers nothing to rival it.
