The Prospects for Agreeable Disagreements

The Prospects for Agreeable Disagreements

(p.12) 3 The Prospects for Agreeable Disagreements
Among the Creationists

Jason Rosenhouse

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, the author reflects on his disagreements with proponents of creationism. In August 2008, he attended the sixth International Conference on Creationism held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The conference sessions featured disputes among the creationists themselves. One such session, “A Nuanced Lakatos Philosophy of Theology and Science,” had Doug Kennard, then a professor of biblical studies at Bryan College in Tennessee, as speaker. The author criticizes the creationists for their insularity and asks why they accept science on some questions and reject it on others, or why they are so confident in the inerrancy of the Bible. Nevertheless, he talks about those moments when he and the creationists can disagree in an agreeable manner.
